Role Reversal

BY Web Intern in General |

You know those sitcoms with the schlubby husband who always messes up while his wife just takes it with a long-labored sigh? People always wonder why the hot wife would stay with the lazy ass.

BY Web Intern in General |

Every now and then you'll be deep in conversation about something like National Yo-Yo Day and that will veer off topic to something like POGs. And sometimes that means all you children of the 90s will stop short, unable to remember the name of the big plastic disc used to hit the little cardboard ones, mainly because none of you actually ever put your massive POG collection to use.When this inevitable situation occurs (and believe me, it will) you'll be forced ...

Need a little reminder that maybe it isn't all so bad? Well, if you head over to Everything is Terrible, you may or may not find that.

BY Emily Rems in General |

I know it's not '80s Welsh rocker Bonnie Tyler 's birthday for another few days (June 8th to be exact), but when I saw this amazing lampoon of the video for her most righteous karaoke jam 'Total Eclipse of the Heart,' I just couldn't wait to share it in her honor! Big ups to my pal Jen for bringing this gem to my attention. I think she was right when she declared it 'The funniest thing ever on ... Read More

Watch What You Eat

It's a tipsy, merry ride: Not only do that have an optimistic and quirky band name that I love, but ... Read More
