We recently spread the word that HBO's Girls was changing up its season 2 cast by adding comedian/rapper/actor/pretty much everything ever Donald Glover, and now we have news that they're changing up the cast even more. This time, it's with hipsters.   Not exactly the kind of diversity the critics were talking about, but still a change of pace. It's pretty expected for the show when you consider its location (New York) and cast (post-grads and college kids). The casting call calls for "Hipster Types: male and...

While we here in the US continue to suffer through the latest ridiculous goings-on of our own election year politics, Egyptians head to the polls today and tomorrow to vote in what is their country’s first ever multi-candidate presidential race and the first major election since long-time dictator Hosni Mubarak took a hike last winter.
