Frank Underwood Seizes Sesame Street: Links You Need to See

You know it’s been an aberrantly chilling season when even dogs tire of the snow, to the extent that they begin shoveling it. Of course, some of us carry out our frustration in less productive ways — some perturbedly Tweet at the snow itself, which, while ultimately unhelpful, at least makes for enjoyable, mild late night humor.   … Read More

Jaw-Droppingly Intricate Crayola Mini-Sculptures of Pop Culture Characters

There aren’t that many totally universal experiences, but it seems safe to say that most of us spent a fair amount of our childhood with a crayon in our hands (or, more accurately, in our hands and our mouths. Just me?). Yet after they’re broken or melted (or eaten!), most of us just throw them away — but not Hoang Tran. This multimedia artist ingeniously carves large crayons into icons of popular culture, with carefully applied melted wax from other crayons adding color accents.

Find Out What Kim Cattrall, Gloria Steinem, and President Taft Have in Common: Links You Need to See

You know how people who quote Family Guy all the time kind of… suck? And have become an actual genre of people who suck? Because Family Guy is only ever quoting other things? And people who quote it are thus only ever regurgitating regurgitation, creating such a bilious verbal mess as to make you wish Family Guy never existed, which perhaps Family Guy doesn’t deserve? Well, I’d hate to think such a thing could happen with so dear a show as Arrested Development, and yet here I am, posting this link with quotable Arrested Development moments, because secretly, I want to be loved. So love me, love these quotes, but just don’t abuse them. Otherwise, you know, “you can say goodbye to these.” … Read More
