The only reason I knew it was Donny Osmond was because we listened to the Mulan soundtrack back-to-back with the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat soundtrack. Someone in my family said, " this the same guy?" Dug out the little CD booklet and damned if it wasn't. » 2/10/14 6:02pm 2/10/14 6:02pm

Ever since I was a middle school girl watching Even Stevens I wondered and marveled at how badly I wanted to see Shia Labeouf punched in the face. I couldn't rationalize it, it just felt right: someone needs to punch this guy in the face. » 1/26/14 9:24pm 1/26/14 9:24pm

This is one of the greatest essays I've read in a long time, possibly in my life (fascinating, terrifying, and intermittently hillarious): "Violence of the Lambs" by John Jeremiah Sullivan. » 1/26/14 4:16pm 1/26/14 4:16pm

I actually clicked on this story because I saw her head-shot and LOVE it—the collar, her hair, and makeup are all working for me.

I'm not a fan of rusted oil cans or old signs (I'm not living in a Cracker Barrel), but I love lots of other salvaged junk—cigar boxes, crates, furniture, frames, and all manner of hardware. It's fun figuring out ways to repurpose free/cheap odds and ends :) » 1/22/14 6:16pm 1/22/14 6:16pm

I was been hoping SO BAD that they'd have Britta's iPod Nano this season that I squealed when this happened! I'd expected they'd just show her fiddling with it at some point without mentioning it, but this was so much better! » 1/18/14 8:03pm 1/18/14 8:03pm
