Okay, okay...so perhaps you already saw this video in 2011, shortly after PBS profiled the reunion of childhood-friend-elephants Shirley and Jenny at the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary. But if you have even the slightest soul, you can watch it again, damn it. Separated for twenty-two years and held in captivity, these two gentle giants were afforded the chance to live free after long, lonely lives. And what happens when the two old friends meet again is possibly the ... Read More

I find Yahoo! Answers endlessly entertaining and Audra McDonald’s singing breathtaking, so the combination of the two is just freaking amazing.
Thank you Jimmy Fallon and Alison Watts, for making this a reality:
The unexpected combination of these two makes me want to take to the dumbest part of the web and sing my heart out, which is such a better alternative to crying about the state of humanity.
Fallon’s Tonight Show has thus ... Read More
You know the drill: you’re watching the surprisingly pro-women “After the Final Rose” episode of the Bachelor, and on comes the typical ABC family-oriented ads about the perfect wholesome family and what they buy. They are almost always white, heterosexual, suburban pictures of loving parents and obedient yet charmingly sassy children.
But then there’s this Honey Maid ad. Delightfully family friendly with an epic boost of progressive ... Read More

I’m not sure about you, but I was super psyched about the latest SNL with Host Lena Dunham and Musical Guest The National; a double win in my book. The promos for the episode - featuring Lena and Kate McKinnon - had me for-real cry-laughing. I thought I would never get over the departure of Kristen Wiig in 2012, but I think I'll be alright if this comedic genius continues. 2014 has been a pretty awesome year for Dunham: she released ...

According to a news blast from Brokelyn.com...tourism may be coming to jenky, jenky Brooklyn. Last year, Sasheer Zamata made a spoof webisode advertising a fictional “Locations of Girls” tour (see below) and today the Daily News confirms the rumor's plausibility. This means that soon, my friends, double decker buses could be trolling through your hood, spewing out tourists eager to photograph the authentic sights and sounds of Greenpoint, Crown ... Read More

When Kim Novak took the stage at the Oscars with Matthew McConaughey, I got uncomfortable hearing her awkward line delivery – her very obvious facial “work” was much less of my concern. In fact, although I knew her name and the general sex-appeal-connotation, Kim Novak is a bit before my time. I had to do a quick Google search to confirm her Glamazon history. Twitter can be a particular kind of cruel to public figures – as ... Read More

Even with all of the almost-there-but-not-quite Ellen jokes and the most transcendent acceptance speech in the history of acceptance speeches, we still found time to sit down with the latest episode of Girls. Or least I did.
Hannah’s grandma is dying, so she eats a salad in the middle of the sidewalk. This confirms that she is the kind of pedestrian that deserves all of the pigeon shits.
At her mom’s urging, Hannah shows up at the ... Read More

Looks like the fierce ladies of Reductress have done it again. In the video below, an actually real and bona fide author (Maya Michaels) explains how she won the prestigious Featherton Award by inscribing her entire novel on...her fingertips. Take a look at the clip below for the outlandish results:
Consistently on-point, Reductress remains a brilliant source for faux-feminews -- we still consider it our very own Onion. ... Read More

While there's no denying Fiona Apple's other worldly musical skills, an upcoming project will have the singer trading her vocal and songwriting abilities for real super powers in the new French show, H-Man. She plays BioFrau, the leader of the activist group "Feux Verts" who apparently will have some awesome earth bending powers of her own. The show was created from the mind of Joseph Cahill, the same guy who directed Apple's music video for "Every Single ... Read More

Female friendships are these amazing, complicated, weird and wonderful things that heavily influence most of our lives and yet are so often misrepresented (if presented at all) in popular media. It's not always sleepovers and mimosas; friendships are challenging, and as we grow up and change, so do our relationships. An honest look at these relationships arrives in the new show Doll & Em.
Real life friends Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells have teamed up to ... Read More
