The Elusive Chanteuse Cooks Up a Frito Pie

Boy, you actin’ so corny like Fritos,” is a sentence that the great Mariah Carey sings in her latest single “Infinity.” Do you think Mariah even eats Fritos or is she more of a Doritos type of girl? These are the kinds of thoughts that keep me up at night. Mimi put on her chef’s hat for a Funny or Die skit called… » 5/06/15 8:55pm 30 minutes ago

Will the New Kurt Cobain Doc Spur More Sexist Hate for Courtney Love?

I DVR’d Montage of Heck and watched it a day after it premiered on HBO. I waited partly out of dread. Everything I’ve read about the Kurt Cobain documentary cast it as the most through and fascinating depiction of him ever—largely due to unprecedented access to home movies, journals, and a clutch of his Dr Demento- » 5/06/15 8:00pm Today 8:00pm

Stop Hand-Washing Your Dishes and Wasting Water, You Old-Timey Idiot

Good news for every lazy motherfucker out there: Turns out that washing your dishes by hand is not only useless but it’s also a complete and utter waste of water. You need to stop doing it immediately, regardless of whether you have a dishwasher or not. Time to buy one or invest in paper plates. » 5/06/15 7:40pm Today 7:40pm

Julia Sweeney On SNL's 'White-Male Energy' and the Story of Pat

Beloved SNL alum Julia Sweeney was interviewed by Salon recently, and now I really miss Pat. During the conversation, Sweeney (a cast member from 1990-1994) had had plenty to say about Lorne Michaels, the show’s “white-male energy,” and whether or not Victoria Jackson is messing with all of us. » 5/06/15 7:20pm Today 7:20pm

Artist Who Photographs Her Period Finds 'Beauty in Blood'

When you get your period, and you’re doubled over with cramps and generally hating life, do you ever look at the toilet before flushing your ‘pon and think about how beautiful your menstrual cycle is? No? Well, Denver-based artist Jen Lewis does, and she’s using period blood as her medium and subject as part of an… » 5/06/15 6:40pm Today 6:40pm

Meet K.A.A.N., A 24-Year-Old Maryland Brickmason Who Can Fucking Rap

A couple of weeks ago, I was trawling Soundcloud when I was abruptly paralyzed by something—a track with the fairly clumsy name of “Concealed the outro (fuck em rmx),” the last stop on a mixtape called (somewhat clumsily as well) Abstract Art, on the page of an essentially unknown rapper calling himself K.A.A.N. » 5/06/15 6:00pm Today 6:00pm

Uber Took Nearly a Week to Give Police Name of Sexually Harassing Driver

On April 30, a 31-year-old New York woman took an Uber home around 2:30 a.m. from her DJ gig on the Lower East Side.

The woman says the driver then jumped in the back of the car and tried to… » 5/06/15 5:00pm Today 5:00pm

Toys Will Be Toys! Amazon Ditches 'Boys' and 'Girls' as Toy Categories

Amazon has dumped “Boys” and “Girls” from its top-level categorization options for Toys & Games, reports BoingBoing. (Kottke pointed out that the categories do exist deeper down into the categories, but that “it’s a nice first step.”) Amazon has, in their own subtle way, announced to the world that boys and girls can… » 5/06/15 4:20pm Today 4:20pm

What Is It With Ciara?

In mid-April, Ciara visited Power 105’s The Breakfast Club to promote her current album, Jackie, with an interview that was typical of almost every Ciara interview: meticulously open and overly cliché. Her album was done, she said. It’s her best work to date. She’s cool with her ex, Future. Their son is adorable. The… » 5/06/15 4:00pm Today 4:00pm
