This post is a fascinating read from a man who gave up the internet for a year. I love that it goes someplace completely different than expected, and that it totally avoids the predictable “the internet is ruining us” conclusion. Very thought-provoking.
I’m planning on seeing The Great Gatsby this weekend, but regardless of whether the film is good or bad, I know one thing: its soundtrack is amazing. Seriously, listening to this on repeat got me through the last half of finals.
This video is very cute, but at the same time, every time I watch it, I’m super anxious and scared for the puppies. Is that normal? Puppies vs. Stairs: The Ultimate Supercut. Also, the pug hopping up the stairs at the end kills me.
As a little girl, I was obsessed with American Girl dolls – in large part because, as a history nerd in training, I loved reading the books and learning about each doll’s time period. Today, American Girls are more like oversized Barbies; that is, shallow and superficial. This article nails it: American Girls Aren’t Radical Anymore.
My Arrested Development hysteria continues to mount as little tidbits about the upcoming Netflix season start to emerge. For instance: this clip and these posters. Cannot. Wait.
I marathon re-watched Sex and the CIty a few months ago and realized that the show is just not holding up well with time (seriously, I’m in my 20s and my maturity level is light years ahead of the women in their late 30s and early 40s on that show). To that end, can we all agree that Carrie Bradshaw is pretty much the worst? For example: 27 Ways You Are Not Carrie Bradshaw.
And in conclusion, this is why Emma Stone is the best ever.
You know how, if you’re a food blogger, you write a post and try to come up with a clever little introductory hook before giving the recipe? Well, everyone can stop doing that now, because nobody will ever top this: Cuban Sandwiches: Don’t Mess with the Bey.
Do you watch Nashville? The show is generally pretty great, but this moment from a few weeks ago gave me chills (and, cough cough, possibly made me cry a little). Then once you watch that, why not fall down the YouTube rabbit hole and watch their other videos? Like this and this and this.
Though I’ve tried (in vain) to convince people that 27 does not constitute “late twenties,” nobody believes me, so I’m trying to come to terms with it. On that note: Life in Your Early 20s Vs. Your Late 20s. Very true.
I have literally been reading Roger Ebert’s movie reviews since I was a little girl (I used to read them every Friday in our local paper), so I was sad to hear of his death. I thought about linking to one of the many tribute articles that have sprung up for him, but in the end, I think his own words are the most poignant: I Do Not Fear Death.
A new Gatsby trailer, this time with a little Beyonce and Florence & the Machine thrown in for good measure. There is absolutely no way that this movie is going to live up to my insanely high expectations, but…doesn’t it look incredible?
Brilliant illustrations: See Game of Thrones Reimagined As Mad Men, Seinfeld, and Arrested Development.
I waver between loving Twitter and thinking it represents humanity’s impending downfall, but whatever your position, you can’t deny the impact the site has made. Here’s a short look back at Twitter’s first 7 years.
I just saw trailers for two movies that I’m now dying to see: To the Wonder (looks beautiful) and The Place Beyond the Pines (valiantly attempting to make both Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper appear unattractive, to no avail).
What if guns in movies were replaced with thumbs ups? Thumbs and Ammo. Oddly fascinating.
This is just about the only thing I’ve ever found endearing about George W. Bush: his paintings.
I’ve never particularly cared about Olivia Wilde, but after seeing this clip of her explaining her Twitter war with Justin Bieber’s crazy fangirls, I’ve decided she’s awesome. So funny, in fact, that many of her jokes seemed to elude Jay Leno (who, BTW, can go away any time now).
Every few years or so, I start to feel overwhelmed by all the clutter in my life and feel compelled to get rid of stuff. I’m feeling that way at the moment, so naturally I love this article: “Living With Less. A Lot Less.”
