    In a recent Hollywood Reporter article, Tatiana Siegal discusses how the formula for the Romantic Comedy is dead. The Meet-Cute is the blanket term for that age-old, quirk-filled scenario of boy meets girl: she trips and falls in his lap/ she leaves her book at the coffee shop where he works/ they meet in a mall and she turns out to be his parole officer, etc.   Siegal suggests that mainstream movie audiences are no longer interested in seeing the meet-cute formula as made famous in movies like...
In a N.Y.C. diner one week after her 25th birthday and only one year after shooting her first music video, rapper Nora Lum, aka Awkwafina, is interrupted mid-sentence by a seemingly inebriated woman freestyling about “Asians doing our thing.” She’s a fan. This sort of thing is happening more and more these days. The Forest Hills, Queens-based rapper and producer first caught the Internet’s attention last fall with her video for “My Vag,” a song about “having a vagina and being cocky about it” that’s a...
  One of my first two-syllable words was “whisper;” I whispered it to my mother. Whispering is one of the most human ways of communicating; it can convey intimacy, fear, love. Until now, no species except humans have ever been caught mid-whisper.    A group of tamarin moneys were captured and their communication studied at The Central Park Zoo. The squirrel-sized tamarins are some of the most community-oriented primates around, and their complex mob calls are a source of extensive research.    These monkeys, believe it or not, know how...
  Oh, you didn’t hear? Tina Fey is hosting SNL’s 39th season premiere with awesome musical guest Arcade Fire. And judging by the promo, the episode looks simply divine. In the video, she admits that she is super excited and rejoices in her friendship with colleague Kenan Thompson. They even engages in a little dirty talk about the number 39, although it turns out to be more disturbing and hilarious than sexy. Parodying an Emmys wardrobe malfunction, Tina even forgets to wear her shirt to the...
  If you gals and guys haven’t checked out the ever-popular @Seinfeld2000 Twitter account, you’re missing out. The dude behind it brilliantly uses Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld’s Manhattanite characters to critique contemporary obsession with celebrity and technology. Tweets include banal and hilariously self-involved reflections on topics ranging from Breaking Bad to kale, and they include unbelievably hilarious misspellings. The account stays true to the sitcom’s scathing satire of the hilariously vain characters.   Although he won’t reveal his identity, the creator of Seinfeld2000 is answering fans’ demand...
