Isaiah Stephens decided to dress up the Disney Princesses as kickass female heroines from other stories. And boy, is it great! The perfect project for Halloween. See them all here!
Did you know that Will Ferrel shot 70 different commercials for the Dodge Durango in character as Ron Burgandy? They aren’t all online yet, since I suppose Dodge will want to space them out and make sure the campaign is fresh. But uh, it’s hard to pick a favorite. They’re all hilarious. Of course, they are aimed square at my age/demographic so it’s only natural I find them hilarious. But, oh man. I kind of want a Dodge Durango now. Damnit….
Really cool/clean poster series by Turkish designer Savas Ozay.
Did you guys catch the season premiere of SNL this weekend? Besides there being 6 new cast members (only one of which is a woman and all 6 of which are white) and Aaron Paul being a surprise guest star (I literally was squealing), there wasn’t much to write home about. EXCEPTTTTTT this hilarious GIRLS spoof starring Tina Fey as Blerta, the new Albanian immigrant “Girl.” Amazing. Hilarious. And shows just how ridiculous, spoiled and self-centered all the characters are. As if we needed another reminder.
And THIS is why I love Louis CK. Not only is he hilarious, he’s also insightful, real and scarily brilliant.
Emily: For the love of god will you bring 1 or 2 things that are not healthy.
Emily: Like how about thigh and ass fattening queso and tortilla chips?
Elyse: Perfect. I will bring ALL the chips.
Elyse: People never want to bring chips; but then they are gone in 5 seconds.
Emily: Awesome. And no more hummus.
Elyse: I swear, I will not bring hummus.
Emily: Or snap peas.
Jimmy Fallon’s “Joking Bad” hits the Breaking Bad vibe right on the head.

I’ve loved Alanis Morisette since I was in 7th grade. She was gritty, confident and loud, all while I was insecure and prepubescent. I admired her. I didn’t understand half the lyrics, but I knew I admired her courage and her strength to be herself.
It wasn’t until I was older, watching the VH1 series “I <3 the 90s” when Mo Rocca explained to us all that her hit song “Ironic” wasn’t that. If a black fly lands in your chardonnay, that’s crappy luck. Not irony. Irony would be if you deliberately moved your wedding day to Phoenix from Seattle to avoid the rain and it STILL rained. Well, Rachael Hurwitz is here to explain to us what “irony” really is. Once and for all.
