Last night I went to sleep and people on my Facebook page were talking about how Joe Paterno had died, but then no he hadn’t, and I thought it was another fake celebrity thing. Today I wake up and he had really died. So either this kid knew something everyone else didn’t…or, I don’t know.
For awhile I thought that everyone found Marc Anthony as lame and laughable as me. Is that not the case? If it isn’t, this video with Pitbull and some girl who inappropriately looks like Vanessa Hudgens will change your mind.

Laura Dern’s “mother” on Enlightened is wearing an inflatable vest or parka.

I don’t know how people can get upset about the Kardashian’s and not get upset about Jessica Alba (who was styled by Brad Goreski. I know you need the money Brad but ugh).
Nicole, can you sit down in that? Should I be worried? Clive Owen has started with the spraytan. Nicole has to make up his acceptance speech because Woody Allen couldn’t be bothered for winning for Best Screenplay for what was actually a good movie! Blah blah Woody.

So he’d never won the oscar and now he’s won the oscar and he’ll never stop winning re: Marty.
I wonder who was responsible for making sure Ricky had decreasing amounts of liquor in that cup.
Wow it’s taken this long to mention either Glee or Modern Family. I didn’t know how good I had it

If you know me and you went to UChicago, then you probably know all the reasons I find this Chicago Maroon article about the opening of the new and improved ExLibris relatively hilarious.
Can you hate yourself for liking a movie trailer too much? Or knowing that you like it because a future fake you in 15 years will be like “Ohhh this is too real!”? These are the complicated emotions I feel when watching the trailer for the new movie by lucky-girl-who-bangs-Jon-Hamm-how-the-hell-does-she-keep-him Jennifer Westfeldt. (I just watched Kissing Jessica Stein a few weeks ago. Is that movie topical anymore? Was it the first movie to mainstream the idea that lesbians are really just best friends who kiss when they’re fed up of men? It was important enough for them to mention it in this trailer.) That and who named their film first: Friends with Benefits or Friends with Kids? And I’m glad that Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm are having good sex after the mad awk sex they had in Bridesmaids, that just seemed like a waste. And WOW I knew those casts were similar but really, they all must be besties by now. Okay done.
