RSD 2015

Last night I met up with some of my SoA friends for a night of revelry and bowling at Lucky Strike that ended up stretching into the week hours of Saturday morning … which would’ve been find had I not had to get up early and get to Amoeba Music in Hollywood to partake in my annual Record Store Day ritual. I’m happy to report that my RSD excursion was really successful and pretty much pain-free. The early bird gets the worm, they say, and so too does the early RSD devotee. More »

The Worst, Most Terrifingly Douchy Children’s Birthday Party Invite Goes Viral

Every once in a while, a viral story comes along and touches your heart, or shocks you to the core of your very being. The cunt-punt sorority girl letter is one that will stay with me until the end of time. And this new e-mail, from the world’s douchiest parents, is 100% proof of the reason I dread receiving birthday invitations from the kids at my sons’ schools. It’s part of the reason I’ve never thrown a huge birthday bashment for my own kids—I’m afraid of turning into an unrecognizable monster, with a wish list for my little one that I force upon unsuspecting, undeserving parents. Please, click inside and experience the horror of the worst, most terrifyingly douchy children’s birthday party invite (which is actually a pre-invite, which actually makes it worse).

First Look: ‘Grace And Frankie’ Is The Next Late-Age LGBT Series

Another hit from Netflix?

If you know anything about my feelings on Amazon‘s Transparent (and by now, you should), you’ll know that I won’t stand for just any show being compared to it. Sure, Grace and Frankie takes on the theme of a late-age LGBT coming out narrative—and uses comedy to do so—but other than that, it doesn’t appear to remind me of my favorite show from 2014. There’s something, well, cheap about the laughs that this first Grace and Frankie trailer seems to encourage—as in, it’s funny because they’re older and gay… and that’s basically it. But there are some heavy hitters in the cast—Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterson and Martin Sheen are starring. I’m not sold yet, but I’m interested in seeing where this goes. Hopefully, there’s more to the series than this trailer suggests. Peep the video for more!

P.S. I just saw Nine to Five for the first time ever the other day. Life-changing. Just wanted you all to know.

Why Aren’t You Watching ‘The Last Man On Earth’ With Me?!

I hadn’t made plans to watch the new FOX post-apocalyptic comedy The Last Man On Earth, and then I started reading all of this buzz about it. One of our editors at Paste Magazine wrote an essay about it when the show first premiered, and finally one day I decided to watch the first few episodes. Totally fell in love, totally can’t stop watching. It’s a nice, light-hearted (but still really funny and fascinating) alternative to my top special shows (The Good Wife, Scandal, Mad Men, etc.). All of that to say, why aren’t you watching this show with me?! Click inside for more (also, if you’re really not watching, SPOILERS AHEAD)!

Let’s All Try To Make Sense Of Rihanna’s New Mouth Piercing

Badgalriri strikes again, with yet another Instagram photo that has me tilting my head to the side, and going, “Hmmmmkay” (that’s “Hmmm” + “Mkay“). We know that when Rihanna‘s not making new music, or pranking the bejeezus out of Jimmy Kimmel, she’s doing wild and crazy things to her body. This time it’s a lip piercing. Or a tooth piercing. Or… both? Click inside and help me figure this out.

This Photo Of Nicki Minaj’s Mother Will Explain Everything

There are few things that excite more in this world than meeting (or “meeting”) someone’s mom. Characters on TV, characters in movies, celebrities, your friends and lovers—everyone just makes a lot more sense when you can bear witness to the human from whence they came. I know I’ve seen photos of Nicki Minaj‘s mother before, but something about this one she just shared on Instagram is just… perfect. The [probably] newly-engaged rapper comes from what appears to be royalty, so things are making more sense now. Click inside for more!

Watch: The First Trailer For ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Has Been Officially Released

"Devils don't come from Hell beneath us"

Last night, the first trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked online 4 days before it was due to be unveiled in movie theaters around the country on Monday night. Just a short time ago, director Zack Snyder released the trailer officially since the cat was already out of the bag. I have to admit, I like the trailer much better now that I can see it clearly in HD. The impact is much stronger now that the footage can be seen clearly. I have a feeling that my appreciation for the trailer would’ve been much stronger yet had I see it on first on the big screen as Synder intended but, the Internet just couldn’t wait. Click the embed above to get another, much better look at the first trailer for Dawn of Justice in HD. Do you find the footage more impressive this time around?

‘Jurassic World’ Releases A Fun Dino-Centric Poster

Universal Pictures just released a new poster for the forthcoming sequel film Jurassic World that features actress Bryce Dallas Howard‘s character standing face to face with the man-made genetic hybrid dinosaur Indominus Rex. The poster art is a nicely stylized representation of what the movie is all about … man vs. nature. Or, more fittingly, man vs. genetically modified nature. We are just a couple months away from the release of Jurassic World and all this teasing is driving me mad. I mean, I like it but it’s still driving me mad. Check out the poster below. More »

Watch: Darren Criss Has Released A New Promo Video For ‘Hedwig And The Angry Inch’

Earlier this week, we got our first look at Glee actor Darren Criss in full make-up as he will appear in the current Broadway musical production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and today we get to see him in action, sorta, as Hedwig. Criss shared a new promo video on his official Facebook profile that features him rockin’ his new Hedwig look. My guess is that this promo video was filmed during the photoshoot for his Hedwig poster. Click below to get your first look at Darren as Hedwig in motion. More »
