We love us some Louis CK around here, so we were super disappointed when news came out that he had tweeted his support of Daniel Tosh during the time of the rape joke controversy that surrounded him.
Louis must have been pretty disappointed about it himself, so he went on The Daily Show last nite, basically to explain his position. He said that he was on vacation in Vermont, detached from the internet, and decided to tweet that he enjoyed Daniel Tosh's humor ... Read More
The masterminds behind the "Call Me Maybe" Barack Obama remix are at it again, this time using the smooth stylings of Justing Bieber's "If I Was Your Boyfriend." Let the president serenade you in this cut together video. Although he cannot really be your boyfriend (Michelle would probably be ticked), you can wonder as to what the president would really do as your man.
Would he sit by the fire with you and eat fondue like the Biebz? Fly you to Hawaii to show you ... Read More
Today is the day when my personal favorite and BUST-featured deadpan actress extraordinaire was born: Aubrey Plaza. In honor of her day of birth, here's a playlist of clips that detail what I think Aubrey's doing on her birthday.

First, Aubrey is probably going to receive a lot of gifts from other people. But if there's one lesson that her show Parks and Recreation taught us, it's this: treat yo ... Read More
Larry Getlen at the New York Post interviewed Adam Carolla today to talk about his new book, which is about growing up in North Hollywood, and probably a lot of other things no one cares about. Today, he's saying a bunch of inflammatory stuff-- probably to try to gain some sort of cultural relevance other than his podcast or old show. One of those things is that women aren't funny. For a dude whose old TV show was based almost entirely on making fun of women, or ... Read More

YOU OUGHTA KNOW that Alanis Morissette’s new single “Guardian” is here. It’s a precursor to her album that’s dropping in August by the name of Havoc and Bright Lights. And if you love Alanis you probably know that on June 19th she is giving a TimesTalk. But if that isn’t enough for you, you can pre-party as well.
It’s been 17 years since Jagged Little Pill came out. Can you believe it? “Ironic”, “Hand ... Read More
As of a year ago yesterday, the internet has been invaded with live streams of cute animals, rants and raves on seemingly everything on TV and the silver screen ever, and a lot of baller nail art. This sparkly invasion is brought to you by the infectious laughter of HelloGiggles, an online community pitched as "the female alternative to funny or die," created by the Queen of all things Adorable herself Zooey Deschanel with friends Sophia Rossi and Molly ...

On Tuesday, Senate Republicans blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill that would have ensured women be paid the same amount as their male counterparts. Despite the fact that this bill seems to make perfect sense to anyone with half a brain, the final vote was 52-47. The real mind-boggling cherry on top of this already non-sensical sundae is the fact that several female senators (who apparently don’t mind being paid less than their male ... Read More
With all the stress over the Wisconsin recall and the general election that we'll all be at each other's throats over at some point, it's good to bring a little levity to politics. Which is why when I checked out my newsfeed this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find my president serenading me.
Although not by his own free will, and instead by the genius of some editing masterminds, Barack Obama is asking us to call him...maybe? This video features a clever ... Read More
Timeless Seasons is a new shopping network that has all of the products you could ever dream up: powerful pepper grinders, convenient teeth whiteners, portable entertainment systems, and more! Except the grinder makes flatulence sounds when you twist it, the whiteners kind of turn you into a zombie, and the entertainment tablet causes high-pitched interferences. In fact, it isn’t a shopping network at all. Timeless Seasons is a comedy trio of three funny ... Read More
There’s a new blog that has us in stitches, and you need to check it out if you wanna get your daily laugh on. The Tumblr “Is This Feminist?” features what stock photos of women doing regular things-- laundry, science experiments, eating salad-- and asks the burning question of each: is this feminist?
The blog votes every photo as either "representing feminism" or "problematic." One problematic candidate is the woman below doing laundry. Is this ... Read More
