On a recent episode of Conan, Anne Hathaway spat a rap - inspired by Lil' Wayne - to let us all know that she goes hard when she's angry. And because it's Anne Hathaway, it's somewhat charming.

After a nutty accident involving a bottle of Advil is misconstrued as a suicide attempt, Jenna ends up in a pretty brutal arm cast (see above picture) and an entire high school full of confused rumors. In MTV’s “AWKWARD.”, the typical cast of any high school TV show is present (the two sidekicks, doofy teachers, cheerleaders, confused parents, lame jocks), all dealing with the typical issues (virginity, popularity, personal identity, ...

I've recently discovered the Found Footage Fest's Youtube channel. And man, is it filled with an enormous amount of bizarre, low quality video clips. Most of the footage featured is extremely strange. I'm not sure if it's the early-nineties aesthetics or, the creepy synth music, but they're all transfixing. The channel features video footage that you would probably find at a yard sale, or a garbage dump somewhere if they weren't rescued by FFF, and so lovingly ... Read More

In the summer of 2009 Diane Schuler drove for two miles on the wrong side of the Taconic State Parkway, and crashed into an oncoming SUV, killing herself and seven others, including one of her children and three of her nieces. At the time of the accident, Diane was found to have a blood-alcohol content of .19% , more than double the legal limit, and a high level of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
The only survivor is Schuler’s five-year-old son, who ... Read More

Inspired by the diversity of the lines of couples at the New York City Hall Marriage Bureau (which are about to get even more diverse, hooray!), Executive Producer Jonathon Tisch wanted to document this “microcosm of the world” in a film that anyone can relate to.
On the youthful end of ... Read More

Margaret Cho is very, very funny. She is not, however, all that funny on the phone. At least not with me, when she calls from Atlanta one weekday afternoon. She's thoughtful, and sort of calm, and very polite. So naturally I think, oh God, it's me. I'm killing Margaret Cho's sense of humor. But then I remember that part of what people love about Cho, aside from her funny faces and ... Read More

In the past few weeks, the TV networks have revealed the new shows that they'll be adding to their fall lineups. One thing that's been quite noticeable is that there are way more shows coming out this fall that are about women than, well, maybe since forever. And of those shows, two of them, on two different networks, are associated with comic Whitney Cummings. One, "Whitney", is a comedy that stars, and is about, Whitney Cummings. The other, which Cummings is ... Read More

I love drag. I always have; when I was about five years old I apparently watched the classic drag movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert so often that the tape of the VHS wore out. Now, 16 years later, I watch just about everything online, so there’s no problem if I want to watch the same thing over and over, like I’ve done with the first season of “Rupaul’s Drag U.”
But soon there will be a new batch of women ... Read More
