This Dude Hilariously Recreated Sia's "Chandelier" Music Video in Ikea

Okay, I absolutely have a soft spot for "Chandelier" parody videos. For some reason it never gets old watching dudes and SNL's Kate McKinnon don a leotard and Sia's signature wig and really go for gold in an attempt to emulate Maddie Ziegler's fantastic and kind of creepy choreography from the original music video.… » 12/27/14 2:30pm 58 minutes ago

The 2014 Food Website of the Year: Someone Ate This

If you've been reading Kitchenette for a while, you might recall that we wrote about Someone Ate This back in May. Sadly, it appears the Tumblr has shuttered, given that the last post from the site was dated September 10. Still, the end of the year seems an appropriate time to eulogize Kitchenette's 2014 Food Website… » 12/27/14 1:11pm Today 1:11pm

AP Poll: Americans Are Over 2014, Really Looking Forward to 2015

According to a new Associated Press-Times Square Alliance poll, 50% of Americans think that 2015 is going to be a better year than 2014. While that is probably the most average statement one could possibly make at the end of any given year, the word AP uses to specifically describe this year? "Meh." How uninspiring… » 12/27/14 12:10pm Today 12:10pm

Greatest Man Alive Pitbull Drops New Video With Ne-Yo For Best NYE Jam

Pitbull's latest album, Global Warming, is characteristically packed with feel-good party jams, but not all of them are populist, per se—aspirational, yes, but not everyone can actualize their fantasies about "sexy beaches/ hotels" when they're trying to scrape up rent. But Mr. Worldwide was not always globally sound,… » 12/26/14 6:50pm Yesterday 6:50pm

Dej Loaf Is Crispy as Hell in New Elle Shoot

Detroit rapper Dej Loaf, who hit big this year with the murking dudes (among other things) single "Try Me," is further down the path to well-deserved stardom with a new photo shoot in Elle.

Here's an Amazing Photo From the Christmas Day Philly Train Birth

A woman gave birth to a baby on public transit in Philadelphia on Christmas Day. It was a miracle in itself that it A. happened and B. happened on the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA), which looks substantially cleaner than any or all of the trains currently running through New York State. » 12/26/14 6:00pm Yesterday 6:00pm

Kat Dennings and Chad Michael Murray Made a Movie Together (???)

The story of how the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms came into existence is now a movie of the same name "based on a true story" (the true story of how the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms was created). It stars Kat Dennings as Renee Yohe, a young woman suffering from depression and… » 12/26/14 5:50pm Yesterday 5:50pm

Shade Court: Reviewing the Year In Shade 

The goal of Shade Court has always been to right the incessant wrongs that are committed in the name of shade. However, this week, with 2014 quickly coming to an end, it seemed like an excellent time to take a look back at some of the actual and truly exceptional instances of shade that have occurred over the past… » 12/26/14 5:10pm Yesterday 5:10pm

Yes, There Are Bad Seasons of The Wire (Relatively Speaking)

HBO has digitally remastered The Wire and is re-airing it in marathon format as of midnight Thursday, December 26.

The Real Meaning Behind the Shitty Christmas Gifts You Didn't Ask For

I used to think that getting a crappy Christmas gift was a reflection on the bad judgment and lack of creativity of the giver of said gift. And, in some cases, it is—the plastic bag of anti-aging Avon cosmetics for a woman with a "medium to dark" complexion that my mean aunt gave me when I was a freckle-faced… » 12/26/14 3:30pm Yesterday 3:30pm
