  • Hillary Clinton wrote a rejection letter to Jason Segel

    Jason Segel is probably this blog’s favorite person. From his inspiring work in “The Muppets,” to him dating a fan, to his recent relationship with Michelle Williams (and her adorable daughter), to his suggested post-apocalyptic ending to “How I Met Your Mother,” it seems that everything Segel does just keeps upping his street-cred. Someone who isn’t… More ▸

  • Stewart does Lieberman

    Okay kids, here is a shocking secret about yours truly: I haven’t really met many celebrities. Sure, if you count hiding in the hedges and looking through binoculars into Brad Pitt’s living room as an in-depth conversation, I’ve rubbed elbows with a few A-listers. But overall? I’ve never really run with the “in” crowd. However,… More ▸

  • Maurice Sendak gives an amazingly grumpy interview to Stephen Colbert

    I imagine children’s book authors to conform to particular stereotypes. Dr. Seuss is an old crotchety man, reading to children gathered around him in a warmly lit library. Inexplicably, he is wearing a Santa costume. Mother Goose has her silly hat. In addition to the circle of children around her in the library, there are… More ▸

  • My boyfriend JoGo songifies the news!

    Joseph Gordon Levitt, the key holder to my locked heart, poster boy of my adolescent bedroom, and father of my digitally altered “what would YOUR children look like?” pictures, is a funny man. So funny, in fact, that the Gregory Brothers (of Songify the News fame) gave him a guest appearance in one of their… More ▸

  • Rosanne Barr is getting nutty

    I know, I know. Most people assumed medical insanity already happened in the nineties, when she did things like star in weirdo crappy movies (“She Devil”, anyone?) and marry Tom Arnold. However, this fine wine has only gotten more robust with age. In the last two days, Roseanne has really shown what a classy broad… More ▸

  • Judah Friedlander for President!

    Sure, Alec Baldwin might SEEM like the most “presidential”30 Rock character, but Judah Friedlander definitely would be the most awesome. Apparently, he thinks so as well. On a recent episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Friedlander officially endorsed himself for president. Some of the platforms he would run on include karate-kicking the vice president… More ▸

  • Beit Shemesh women start a flash mob

    Now remember kids: when faced with rampant gender discrimination, threatening the safety of you and your children, always turn to Queen. ALWAYS. On Friday, January 6, about 250 women from the Israeli town of Beit Shemesh gathered in the city square for a flash mob. The dance, set to Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now,” was… More ▸

  • Bloomberg goes Gaga

    In possibly the most unlikely pairing of the holiday season (egg nog and matzo ball soup are delicious together, ok??), Lady Gaga and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg shared a midnight smooch at the Times Square New Year’s ball drop. The mayor was decked out in a fantastic sweater that would be welcome at any… More ▸
