Last night, Jon Stewart sat down for an epic finale to his 16-year stint as host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” It was not your usual episode — and really, after that two-hour clown show known as the GOP presidential debate, what “Daily Show” fans likely needed and wanted out of Stewart was a… More »
Conveniently timed to coincide with Jennifer Aniston’s marriage announcement — just kidding, I’m sure it’s a random coincidence — we have the first trailer for “By The Sea,” Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s first film together since “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” Not too much can be gleaned from the short trailer, but we do know… More »
Hoverboards are here, they’re real, and they seriously hard to ride, even for pro skateboarders.
Lexus’s Slide hoverboard hovers in this video because it has liquid nitrogen-fueled superconductors in the board, and because the skate park where the video was filmed was specially made with a surface full of magnets. As Gregory Han at Design… More »
The Times has produced a short video celebrating 30 years of the Guerrilla Girls, the feminist art collective that publicly criticizes the art world for its sexism and hypocrisy while wearing gorilla masks.

Paparazzi snapped a few photos of Christine Ouzounian, the ex nanny with whom Affleck apparently had an affair, showing up to the… More »

Hi! Happy Tuesday morning! Here’s an adorable baby sloth. I hope this makes your Tuesday better. This baby sloth is named Edward, after Edward Scissorhands (he’s after my heart, here), and he lives at the London Zoological Society. He has adorable little claws, and he uses them to hang from a plush faux-mommy sloth, because… More »
Senate Democrats gathered enough support to block a Republican attempt to defund Planned Parenthood. The bill, S.1881, garnered 53 votes in favor and 46 in opposition, falling short of the 60 votes needed for it to pass.
The entire thing was a waste of time, anyhow: President Obama has voiced his support for Planned Parenthood… More »
The Senate is voting on funding for Planned Parenthood in the wake of a fake controversy, the Obama administration is backing Truvada for HIV prevention, Chinese activists are protesting the idea that a breast is a weapon, and two women are shaking up London’s art scene. More »

Oh good lord, would you look at this one. This charming KKK member came to a rally at Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park to express his support for the Confederate flag – but he did not exactly come dressed for the occasion. He came wearing FUBU shoes … and he did not see the irony.
The man was briefly… More »
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, presidential hopeful Chris Christie was reminded that he once said he’d punch bullies in the face.
I suppose Tapper decided to reopen that wound again and ask Christie about his thoughts this time around as a presidential hopeful:
“At the national level, who deserves a punch in the… More »
OH MY GOD GUYS, GET OUT YOUR FUCKING PHONES. The band Foals released a video for their track “Mountain At My Gates” that’s interactive if you open it with the YouTube app; you’re meant to stand in one place and move the phone around while you watch it. I’d tell you what happens, but I’d… More »
The texts came through in rapid succession. “OMG!” “Are you so excited?” “DID YOU HEAR!?!” “The X-Files” was returning to television and I, a superfan with an “I Want to Believe” poster tacked to my bedroom wall, could only muster a flutter of dread.
I love “The X-Files.” And I love that it’s over.

Emma Donoghue’s Room WRECKED ME. I mean, I’m pretty sure it did the same thing to everyone who read it, because what’s not soul-destroying (in the best possible way, because it’s fiction) about a mother raising her son Jack in a small room, where they’ve been held captive since before he was born?
