Help settle a debate in The Frisky offices. Both Sophie and I think this video of a mama cat suckling her baby kittens and a gaggle of ducklings is so frickin’ cute. But Megan is seriously perturbed by the situation. It’s not natural, she says. Well, obviously! It’s sweet to see how protective the mama cat is of all of her babies, be they furry or feathered.

“Star Trek”‘s Captain James T. Kirk was my first crush. When I was five — and clearly part of a super nerdy family — my dad used to make up stories for me before bed. I was always an Ensign or a Yeoman on the Enterprise (with a sweet beehive, natch) in the tales and Kirk was, like, the beautiful, blond, manly hero. He was such a stud — and had a serious way with women. The guy bagged a new alien slave girl in every episode! How did he do it? Check out Captain Kirk’s Guide To Women above!
On Sunday and Monday you’re binge-watching “Arrested Development,” I get it. But set your DVRs now for Tuesday night at 10 p.m. for “Outlawed In Pakistan,” a new documentary airing on the PBS program “Frontline.” The film by Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann, follows a teenaged girl named Kainat Soomro, who accused four men of gang rape at age 13 at great risk to her own life. Like other women who try to go through Pakistan’s justice system, she’s found herself being shamed, doubted, and threatened by a culture that blames the rape victim more than her perpetrators. One family member of one of Kainat’s accused rapists even told the two female filmmakers, “There will be murders over this.”
You can learn more about the film at PBS.org. It will air on Tuesday night and then be viewable online. I know I’ll be watching. [Frontline: Outlawed In Pakistan]
I am so mad at Andy Cohen for not inviting me to be inside this Jessica Walter and Elisabeth Moss sandwich. “Arrested Development”? “Mad Men”? Booze? LIFE. Any challenges Elisabeth to a game of Plead The Fifth and, class act that she is, she had nothing to say about her costar’s famously well-endowed penis. I was kinda hoping she would plead the fifth, so she could use Jessica’s favorite Lucille Bluth line, “I don’t understand the question and I won’t respond to it.” [Bravo TV]
Funny thing about our siblings — sometimes we forget to tell them how special they really are.
Katie was searching for a way to tell her big sister Kristine just how much she meant to her. Enter Boyz II Men, and the Kia Sorento Serenades sweepstakes.
Katie entered the sweepstakes and with a little from Kia, got a chance to have all-time great R&B group Boyz II Men come to Los Angeles and give Kristine a very special musical surprise.
Check out what happened in the video above — and click here to find out more about Kia and Sorento Serenades with Boyz II Men.
God, I love the internet. Some brilliant person out in the world took footage of Celine Dion rocking out at one of her French concerts and swapped out the audio for Daft Punk’s new hit single, “Get Lucky.” You will not believe how perfectly they match up. Also, if you’ve never seen Celine dance, well, prepare to be amazed. [YouTube via Gawker]
Okay, yes, some people booed Ryan Gosling’s next movie, “Only God Forgives,” when it premiered at Cannes this week. But not everyone thinks the “Drive” followup from Nicholas Winding Refn is “a defecation” — it’s gotten a few good reviews too. The Hollywood Reporter called it “wicked cool entertainment.” So there, haters! Personally, I’m down to watch any movie that refers to Ryan Gosling’s cock. In this just released scene, Gosling’s character Julian hires a prostitute to be his date to dinner with his beyatch mom, played by Kristen Scott Thomas. She’s on to him though, and seizes the opportunity to tear him a new one, by insulting the size of his manhood. Mean. Check it out above! [The Daily Beast]
So, have any big plans for Memorial Day weekend? TRICK QUESTION. I already know you’re going to do exactly what I’m doing, which is binge-watching “Arrested Development,” because the new season debuts on Netflix at midnight on Sunday(!). To prepare for an awesome AD-packed weekend, check out this hilarious supercut of all the chicken dances that have ever appeared on the show. [Vimeo via Flavorwire]
Much fuss has been made about the lack of female representation in the new movie “Star Trek Into Darkness.” While I adored the movie — and Winona and I both think that it’s kind of a chick flick — I completely agree that there should have been more women in the movie and that the ones in the film should have been given more to do. (Thankfully, the various “Star Trek” series have taught us plenty of feminist lessons over the years.) One of the scenes that has bothered a lot of feminist fans of the series is the one in which Alice Eve’s character, Carol Marcus, appears in just a bra and panties for seemingly no reason but to titillate. J.J. Abrams responded to the hullabaloo on “Conan” last night, by debuting a deleted scene from the film in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s character is seen showering. Droooooool. More — real!!! — wet ‘n’ wild sexy mole rat action, please! [Conan]
My boyfriend’s back! No, not my real boyfriend, but my fantasy magical unicorn boyfriend, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This time, he’s beefed up and thrown on a real thick Jersey accent to play the title character in “Don Jon,” a movie about a porn-addicted goomba who falls in love with a slightly questionable bangin’ Jerz chick (played by Scarlett Johannson). Can the love of a good woman get him to change his ways? (Spoiler alert: duh.) Both are playing a bit against type, which should be fun to watch. So check out the trailer for the movie — which JGL also wrote and directed — if only to see JGL sing along to Marky Mark’s “Good Vibrations.” Funky bunch, indeed. [YouTube]
