  • Jerry Seinfeld, for the Super Bowl (commercial) win!

    Jerry Seinfeld is in the running for my choice of best friend. Not only do I appreciate his reclusive response to Hollywood grandeur (ahh, woes of fandom), but he really just reminds me of all my funny Jewish boy friends. He’s got the jeans and sneakers look, the frizzy hair, and the droopy shouldered puppy… More ▸

  • Paul Rudd answers age old ‘man questions’

    In a recent video segment called Ask a Grown Man on Rookiemag, Paul Rudd answered some questions posed by young ladies. He looks tired, and cute, and I am sort of in love with this video. Some examples of reader queries: “Why, WHY do boys like boobs so much?” (Rudd’s answer: Because they are awesome.)… 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 ▸

  • Is Heebow the reason Tebow lost last Sunday?

    Three months after the whole “Tim Tebow can’t play but he triumphs in the 4th quarter because he really believes in Jesus,” and two months after Tebowing became the new planking, the Tebow bandwagon has been officially destroyed. Why? It’s quite simple:  Tebow just stopped winning (though for the record I don’t even think Jesus… More ▸

  • Daniel Radcliffe: 10 points. Saturday Night Live: 0

    Legendary (and recently dried up) late-night sketch show “Saturday Night Live” ushered in 2012 with a bang. And by “bang,” I mean hardcore suckiness. With English wizarding legend Daniel Radcliffe hosting and newcomer Lana Del Rey, producers thought the show would be a hit. Unfortunately, they forgot about their crappy writers and past musical disasters…. 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 ▸

  • Sh*t Christians say to Jews

    “You know what? You are like reeeeeeeeeeally pretty for a Jew.” “But you don’t look like a Jew..” “Oh my god I love your curls! Can I touch them?” “Do you like bagels?” “Did you know Jesus was a Jew?” “That’s sooo not kosher” “Are you related to Itzhak Perlman?” More ▸

  • Jason Segel dates a fan

    I can’t tell if this is totally awesome or heartbreaking. Awesome because Jason Segel actually went on a date with a fan, which gave all us wee folk hope. But on the other hand, it’s totally heartbreaking that he went on a date with a fan and gave all us wee folk hope. The story… More ▸

  • Mac Miller gets his serious on

    In Mac Miller’s new single, “Of the Soul,” released Thursday, the young’n introduces some new and mature (pronounced “ma –toor”) aspects of his art. Namely, he has glasses. And raps to a slower, more sensuous R&B tempo. And has an actual sound stage instead of a playground (because nothing screams adult like modern art, rather… 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 ▸
