“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: Andi Goes On The Most Embarrassing & Unhinged Dates In “Bachelorette” History

For some reason, ABC has decided that one two-hour episode a week just isn’t enough “Bachelorette.” This week, there are two two-hour episodes of my favorite reality TV dating show, one last night and then another tonight. Yay, four hours of “The Bachelorette” — how did I get so lucky? The good news is, last night’s episode was significantly less depressing than last week’s, but it was also easily among the weirdest episodes I’ve ever seen. Let’s dole out some superlatives and you’ll see what I mean! Keep reading »

Help Turn One Of Dear Sugar's Best Advice Columns Into An Animated Short
"The fuck is your life. Answer it."

Hands down, my favorite advice columnist ever is Dear Sugar over at The Rumpus, best known as Wild memoirist Cheryl Strayed. Her collection of advice columns, Tiny Beautiful Things, sits on my nightstand and is a regular resource when I need a little inspiration, motivation or just a reminder that I can find resilience within. That’s why I’m so psyched to see that Strayed, along with producer Lisa Bellomo, animator David Polonsky, and writers Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, have launched a Kickstarter project to turn one of Sugar’s most beloved columns into an animated short. In 2010′s “The Baby Bird,” Sugar was asked by letter-writer “WTF” a simple, but difficult question to answer: “WTF, WTF, WTF? I’m asking this question as it applies to everything every day.” To many, this vague inquiry would have seemed like a throwaway, but Sugar’s advice was anything but. If you haven’t read the column, you must, and then if you’d like to see a “kick-ass manifestation of Sugar’s punk rock spirit” and “authentic, unconventional, raw and heartfelt” advice in the form of animation, donate donate donate!

That Time A 15-Year-Old Justin Bieber Told A Racist Joke

That Time A 15-Year-Old Justin Bieber Told A Racist Joke
Cool Joke, Bro. Not.

Apparently TMZ has been holding on to this video, of a then-15-year-old Justin Bieber telling a racist joke, for awhile, waiting to release it until, I dunno, the Biebs was of age and had already established himself as a shitbird. Apparently it was shot by Bieb’s own personal photographer, not someone trying to get dirt on the pop star, and it’s clear Justin is proud of how witty his use of the n-word is. Sources are saying Justin will make a statement about the video in the next few days. [TMZ]

Meet “Actually Guy,” The Insufferable Know-It-All Who Ruins Every Conversation

Actually Guy
He's ALWAYS right!

Whether it’s a coworker, brother, friend, or dad, we all know an “Actually Guy.” He can’t resist letting any insignificant detail slip into a conversation without offering a correction. In this video, we see not only a spot-on impression of every Actually Guy I’ve ever met, but also a glimpse into his lonely life. Apparently it’s tough being right all the time. [Neatorama]

This Video Of Women Seeing Their Vaginas For The First Time Is Surprising Sweet (SFW)

This Video Of Women Seeing Their Vaginas For The First Time Is Surprising Sweet (SFW)
"She looks like an old bald-headed man."

I’ve looked at my own vagina a few times, but two instances in particular are memorable. The first time I got a completely bare wax, I had barely recovered from the final strip being ripped from my labia when the waxer stuck a hand mirror between my legs and was like, “Good?” It was the first time I was seeing the thing unencumbered by any hair whatsoever and it happened rather unexpectedly, so my reaction was one of mild shock and awe. Oh hello there. You look different naked. The second memorable moment of eye contact between me and my vagina was during a visit to my gynecologist, when my doc asked if I wanted to see my cervix. This encounter was fascinating because “HELLLLOOOOOOO DOWN THEEREEEEE!” but also disturbing because “WOW, that thing is gonna have to expand a whole lot more to push a baby head out someday. WTF.” Keep reading »

Trans Woman Schools Rush Limbaugh On Trans Rights And Anal Sex (And He Kinda Listens!)

Trans Woman Schools Rush Limbaugh On Trans Rights And Anal Sex (And He Kinda Listens!)
"Oh no! I've been for trannies for a long time."

Listen, I’m not about to throw Rush Limbaugh a parade or anything, but perhaps for the first time in his life, the conservative shock jock actually let a critic get a word in edgewise. Via Jezebel, a trans woman named Tina called into Limbaugh’s radio show to criticize his coverage of TIME‘s Laverne Cox/trans rights cover story. When Rush rather annoyingly claimed he’s “been for trannies for a long time,” the caller enlightened him to the fact that, yes, “tranny” is still considered an offensive slur even though Alec Baldwin used it that one time. Then, seemingly having Limbaugh’s attention, she went on to explain just some of the prejudices she faces as a trans woman:

“One of the things about being transgender is that whatever somebody’s sexual preference is, you’re not it. Gay men don’t want anything to do with effeminate types and straight men don’t want to have anything to do with people who’ve got wrong plumbing or wrong history and lesbian women are interested in certain things that’s just never gonna be the same no matter how much surgery you have, so that definitely is a problem.”

“You Are All Nerds”: Mindy Kaling’s Harvard Law School Commencement Address

Mindy Goes To Harvard

I love Mindy Kaling. I really do. But her commencement address at Harvard Law School was rather … Mindy Kaling-focused … to put it politely. I don’t understand why she was invited to speak (she doesn’t seem to understand why herself), because most of what Mindy Kaling had to say was about Mindy Kaling. I guess it’s always exciting to have a big Hollywood star at your graduation. But I bet Harvard Law is wishing they had gone with someone a little more esteemed, or at least with a little more to say. [NYMag.com]

Here Are James McAvoy And Michael Fassbender Doing Impressions Of Patrick Stewart And Ian McKellen

Gandalf, But With A Bigger Dick

Here’s something guaranteed to put a smile on your face on this Friday morning: James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender doing impressions of their “X-Men” costars Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen — to their faces. Come to think of it, if there ever was going to be a movie made about the glorious friendship between Patrick and Ian — and yes, that is a movie I would totally see — James and Michael could totally play them in their younger years.

LeVar Burton Weeps With Gratitude Over “Reading Rainbow” Kickstarter Donations

LeVar Burton Weeps With Gratitude Over "Reading Rainbow" Kickstarter Donations
"Take a look, it's in a book, it's a reading rainbowwwww!

It’s been only one day since LeVar Burton launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdsource funds to reboot iconic children’s show “Reading Rainbow” and he’s already hit over $2 million, twice his original goal. In the video above, watch LeVar — aka Geordi LaForge from “Star Trek: The Next Generation” — tearfully react to hitting $1 million:

“I am overwhelmed. Thank you so much. This is going to enable us to really, really do a lot of good. I am so proud that this community has come together to support this effort and it’s a people’s thing. It’s the $5, it’s the $10, it’s the $25, it’s the $1 pledges and it’s unbelievable. Or actually, it’s very believable. Thank you do much. We are literally changing the world, one children’s book at a time.”

So so so awesome. I am not embarrassed to say that if “Reading Rainbow” does indeed hit our television screens again, I’ll be watching from time to time too. [YouTube]
