Rape, Lies and the Internet: The Story of Conor Oberst and His Accuser

Last week, Bright Eyes musician Conor Oberst filed a lawsuit for libel against a reported "anonymous commenter" who posted on various websites that he raped her. But Joanie Faircloth was not anonymous—she left the original comments under her name, and her commenter account was linked to her Facebook. Her broad… » 2/28/14 2:45pm 2/28/14 2:45pm

Sunday Sign Off: What Does Tony Stand For?

Fact: West Side Story is the best movie and it's definitely streaming right now on Amazon. I'm not going to tell you how to enjoy your evening, but I think it's pretty obvious that you have to watch West Side Story, or at least stage it with two small bands of animals that share a strong and historic antipathy — cats… » 2/23/14 6:30pm 2/23/14 6:30pm

Sunday Sign Off: Carnival Season in Nice Is Bananas

The Catholic Church may have introduced a lot of not-so-awesome traditions, but give credit where credit is (partially) due: Carnival season is the best time of year. If you don't live in a place that will take part in the pre-Lenten debauchery, sucks for you. If you do live in such a place, congratulations and enjoy… » 2/16/14 6:30pm 2/16/14 6:30pm

Sunday Sign Off: Lady Edith Is Going to Have a Great Decade

Lady Edith moves to 1920s Berlin, becomes a bon vivant artist, attending various orgies and drinking parties with Michael Gregson while working on a literary masterwork that starts out an innocuous chronicle of the Berlin social scene and transforms into a terrifying tale about the rise of fascism in Germany.

Saturday Night Social: Melissa McCarthy Gives Zero Fucks About Football

And yet, she will host Saturday Night Live on Feb. 1, less than 24 hours before Super Bowl XLVIII. Since the Super Bowl will be on CBS, SNL and the Super Bowl really don't have a whole lot to do with each other, but it's still nice to know that there are people out there willing to openly defy the evil NFL Empire by… » 1/11/14 6:30pm 1/11/14 6:30pm

Sunday Sign Off: Downton Abbey, Rise of the Machines

Sure, we could spend the whole new season fretting over Downton's precarious finances, OR the writers could have devised a whole new story arc: the luddite Mrs. Patmore learns that the machines are plotting to take over Downton and must set about destroying all telephones and electric mixers even as the people around… » 1/05/14 6:30pm 1/05/14 6:30pm

Saturday Night Social: How Many Sex Toys Can $6K Get You?

According to a hilarious blind item on Radar yesterday, Jay Z and Beyoncé recently visited the New York sex shop Babeland so they could spend $6,000 on sex toys, which should make us all wonder: Did they buy a few really fancy sex toys, or did they buy a whole bunch of cheap sex toys to give away as ironic gifts? How… » 12/28/13 6:30pm 12/28/13 6:30pm

Sunday Sign Off: What Do We Do with the Sex Toys of the Deceased?

It's easy to get sucked into a vortex of self pity around the holidays, but thanks to the internet, you can rest assured that someone else is having a far more depraved and horrifying holiday season than you. Take, for instance, this gentleman, one of the best (or worst) "Dear Prudence" letters of 2013: » 12/22/13 6:30pm 12/22/13 6:30pm

Sunday Sign Off: 'I'm Not an Actor, I'm a Movie Star'

Peter O'Toole appeared on Letterman not too long ago and told this story about how he figured out what to put on his tombstone from a little note he once received from the dry cleaners. The note was tacked to a gross jacket that just couldn't be cleaned thoroughly, and it read (apparently), "It distresses us to… » 12/15/13 6:30pm 12/15/13 6:30pm
