Old New York Was Sexier Than New New York: Links You Need to See

There’s nothing more to be said about NYC’s general scrubbing-up and watering-down that took place during the Giuliani and Bloomberg years. We’ve all generally accepted that New York (Manhattan in particular) is headed toward upperclass oblivion. And these new (somewhat NSFW) photos by Arlene Gottfried, taken during the ’70s and ’80s (and compiled in her book Sometimes Overwhelming), show a New York that is just generally more interesting than anything you’ll see on, say, Humans of New York. … Read More

When Men Run Away From Things: In Praise of ‘Force Majeure,’ ‘Seinfeld,’ and Other All-Too-Rare Depictions of Male Cowardice

As a man who’s also, sometimes, a coward (as men, and generally people, but often men, are), it’s fun to watch other men run away, literally and figuratively, from things onscreen. As a man who also dates men, it’s similarly refreshing — if not fun — to see men running away from things onscreen, because anyone who dates men knows their predilection for running away from things that… aren’t onscreen. Such a viewing experience, however, is not easy to come by. … Read More

“Mr. White’s Tighty Whitey Bites,” “Jesse’s Jell-O Acid Tub,” and Other Treats: Links You Need to See

You know the dangerous feeling of being in a supermarket on an empty stomach, where everything from the dregs of deli chicken salad to frozen tilapia to tabloids plastered in unflatteringly altered photos of John Travolta looking like frozen tilapia not only start to look delicious, but also crucial? Well, I unknowingly must have been hungry while perusing the internet today, because here I am with a shopping cart full of vaguely sustenance-related links. … Read More

5 Emmy Moments Everyone is Talking About

Last night, NBC aired the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. It was, for the most part, boring and predictable, but isn’t that usually how these things go? There were some good parts: Key and Peele showed up or any time we got a glimpse of Amy Poehler. Seth Meyers told some jokes that Seth Meyers really liked. Weird Al Yankovic did a thing that killed some time. There was an icky and uncomfortable bit with Sofia Vergera. But really, the Emmys were basically a rerun: many of last year’s winners won again, Modern Family continues its baffling domination, Breaking Bad went out on top, and we were shown that women are meant to be ogled on pedestals. 2014! Anyway, here are five things everyone is talking about. … Read More

Flavorwire’s 2014 Primetime Emmy Picks and Predictions

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards airs tonight at 9pm. You’d be forgiven if this catches you off guard; it’s about a month earlier than usual due to football, and it’s airing on a Monday, as if NBC was worried about the overlap between Emmys and MTV Video Music Awards viewers (but really because of how early Labor Day is this year). If you’re unprepared, there’s no need to worry! Flavorwire has you covered with a list of all the nominees in the big categories, our (mostly) informed predictions, and even our personal picks. Even if we’re wrong, we’ll still get a night of tipsy celebrities, meandering acceptance speeches, and awkward topical humor. We’re all winners! … Read More
