Following up on job applications has to be the worst part of the job hunt. You stop in to a coffee shop to check on the application you dropped off two weeks before, only to get a ready-made answer from one of the other employees. It may sting when they tell you they’ve got your resume “on file”, but I’m sure you’ve never gotten an answer quite as honest as the one seen in this deleted scene from GIRLS.
In this scene, which ... Read More

The much-anticipated second season of the hit HBO series GIRLS comes back in January and today we got our first real look with the first trailer for Season 2. January can’t come soon enough.

Remember those days on the playground at recess, running around wild and playing hand games with your friends? You know what I’m talking about. There were millions of them – Miss Mary Mack was the queen of these rhythmic narratives.
For example, I personally remember playing this one called “Shame Shame Shame” in the playground as a kid. If you’re not familiar with this one, the adorable little girl in the video below ... Read More

9-year-old starting quarterback Sam Gordon is the star of the Gremlin youth boys tackle football team. Sam’s stats: 1,911 rushing yards, 8.2 yards-per-carry, 25 touchdowns, 65 tackles.

When I read that a cafe in Tokyo is providing customers the offer to sleep with a girl for about $80, I was like, hold the phone. It’s not what you’re probably thinking, though--it’s quite literally just sleeping.
If you feel like splurging, you can pay an additional 1000 yen (roughly $13) for your female snuggler to pat you on your head while you sleep, or you can stare at each other for one minute (staring contest, go!). The ... Read More

This week the New Yorker features a piece written by Lena Dunham, the writer, actor, and director of HBO series Girls.

They move in together and hardly ever have sex. ... Read More
The top 100 names that were all the rage in 1940 have dropped almost 700 spots, Find My Past reported recently. This is a harsh contrast to how far the most popular boys names dropped- hardly at all- by only 100 spots. This may point to the way in which we view ourselves and our daughters.
As Gloria Steinem said, "We are becoming more like the men we wanted to marry. Taking their jobs, and in some cases, their first names."
An apt observation from the ... Read More

When it comes to werewolves, there are a few words you can usually expect to hear. 'Taylor Lautner,' 'teen wolf' and 'chiseled abs' are a few of the usual suspects.
