Shia LaBeouf Reveals That He Was Raped During His #IAMSORRY Performance Art Installation

"One woman ... whipped my legs ... and proceeded to rape me"

Back in February, actor Shia LaBeouf sat in residence for 5 days at an art gallery here in LA for his #IAMSORRY performance art installation project where he sat in a room, completely silent, as any/everyone sat across from him for unspecified amounts of time. There were no rules and no parameters for the show. Shia sat in silence in a room for a set amount of hours every single day and people were allowed in one and at time for as long and as little time they wanted. The visitors were free to do pretty much whatever they wanted to do. Today, we learn in a new interview with Shia that one woman actually raped him during the performance art process. More »

Can We Please Stop With Theses Skinny Stick-Figure Drawings Of Women?

I'm not a fan

It’s 9AM, I’m late for work, and I’m about to take it out on some innocent artists. Just kidding (I mean, I am late), but I’ve actually been wanting to write about this for ages. Do you guys remember when Disney and Barney released those “high fashion” photos of characters like Minnie and Daisy? And they were all skinny-fied and weird? Yeah, no. Those annoy me and I’d like them to stop. And, although I really love when celebrities share fan art, I don’t understand the need to take someone like Nicki Minaj and draw her in this bizarre way.

Home Decor

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very quiet, very relaxed day for me. After all my running around for the past couple of weeks, I decided not to do a single thing yesterday. No movies, no hang outs, no nothing. I spent most of my day indoors trying to stay cool from the massive heat outside. I did venture out last night to grab dinner but my Monday was one of those no shower days and I loved every minute of it. I did do a few things around my new place. I hung a few more things on my walls, including two pieces that I’ve been dying to put on display in my bathroom. More »

Worlds imagined
STUNNING!

This year HBO‘s Game of Thrones won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Art Direction For A Contemporary Or Fantasy Series, and you’re about to see why.

Jezebel Shows Us What Disney Prince Penises Look Like

Sorry to ruin your childhoods

So … uh … yeah … Jezebel commissioned one of their in-house artists to help visualize what a few Disney Princes would look like naked so that we could get a look at what their penises might look like. Yes, really. As you can see in the gallery presented here, many Disney Princes are drawn fully and NSFWly nude … which is both fascinating and horrifying all at the same time. You can read the descriptions of the individual Disney Prince penises at Jezebel HERE but be warned, the descriptions might add to your nightmares (or delight, who knows?). Of the batch presented here, I think Prince Phillip laying on Sleeping Beauty‘s bed is the most risqué and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast provides the truly must see illustration (his uncensored photo is the last one in the gallery). Have a look around, see what you think. Do any of YOU have any particular thoughts on the nekkidness of these Disney Princes?

Here’s Your Morning Cry AKA My Favorite Internet Story Right Now

A grieving mother gets an amazing gift from Reddit users

As you all know, I’m the Assistant TV Editor over at Paste Magazine and I had a really interesting experience one day. One of my writers wrote this great piece on the Simpsons a while back and I’d emailed him to say that he was getting all of these hilarious comments on the article. He told me that he never reads comments, so I e-mailed him back and shares a few of them. I didn’t argue with him on the comments thing because, honestly, that’s an incredibly smart decision for people who write online. Literally, everywhere else that isn’t PITNB the comments can just suck LOL. As Selena Gomez just showed us, people get crazy online and so I was really happy to see this piece from The Atlantic, titled A Positive Example of the Internet Comforting a Grieving Stranger. Get ready for your morning cry.
