So folks at NASA and archaeologists and real news reporters are trying to tell everyone to simmer down about the apocalypse coming on December 21, because of science and stuff. But we’re beginning to suspect differently. Even if the Mayans themselves didn’t think the end of the 13th baktun (things we’ve learned this week!) didn’t actually meant the end of the world, we’ve noticed some signs that really, we should just give up and retreat to our bunkers right now

Chris Brown's tattoo, Honey Boo Boo-inspired porn among the 10 reasons the world should just end already

So folks at NASA and archaeologists and real news reporters are trying to tell everyone to simmer down about the apocalypse coming on December 21, because of science and stuff. But we’re beginning to suspect differently. Even if the Mayans themselves didn’t think the end of the 13th baktun (things we’ve learned this week!) didn’t actually meant the end of the world, we’ve noticed some signs that really, we should just give up and retreat to our bunkers right now. Let us count down our top 10:

Gossip Girl

10. Gossip Girl was Dan Humphrey all along! (And also, everyone on the island was dead!) Oof. The resolutions of series-long mysteries are never as good as we want them to be, probably much like the answers to life’s big questions. Bleh.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

9. All the hip-hop greats are running corporations, starring on reality-TV shows or dating the stars of reality-TV shows. Not that they shouldn’t trade thug life for the good life, but did they have to sell their artistic souls in the process?

Kardashian Kard

8. The Kardashians kontinue to rule all — while apparently preserving Kim’s dead kitten Mercy in a plexiglass container.

Fifty Shades of Grey

7. Fan fiction has become the next big thing in literary source material. There is literally nothing new under the sun anymore. Pack it in, mankind.

Justin Bieber gave away his hamster

6. Justin Bieber, that shining paragon of kindness and light and swag, turned out to be a heartless pet owner and handed his new pet hamster, Pac, over to a fan last week. The hamster community is up in arms.

5. All the greats of the silver screen are either dead or talking to chairs.

4. This guy can get a tattoo of a woman with a bloody face (which he says is a Dia de los Muertos mask, sure) and still have two drop-dead gorgeous women fighting over him.

Honey Boo Boo

3. Not only is Honey Boo Boo one of the biggest stars on the planet this year, but now the success of her show has reportedly spawned a boom in redneck-themed porn. Strike us all down now.

2. Olivia Newton John and John Travolta inflicted this on us.

The Hunger Games and Total Recall, the future's gonna suck

1. Screw it, the future’s going to be all about mind control and death battles anyway. Let’s not go there.

5 Reasons It’s Cool To Like Miss Universe Olivia Culpo

On December 20, 2012, in Article, Celeb, eBooks, Entertainment, Fashion & Lifestyle, Movies, Music, Sports, Videos, by nadia

Naturally, we have all sorts of reservations about embracing the Miss Universe pageant and all it represents — Donald Trump runs it, it sets a bad example for little girls about beauty mattering more than brains, and all that stuff.

Rhode Islander Olivia Culpo named Miss Universe 2012

Naturally, we have all sorts of reservations about embracing the Miss Universe pageant and all it represents — Donald Trump runs it, it sets a bad example for little girls about beauty mattering more than brains, and all that stuff. But today we’re putting those aside, because we really feel OK embracing the newly crowned Olivia Culpo, who came up from the ranks of Miss Rhode Island and Miss USA, actually seems like a pretty cool girl … in addition to being drop-dead gorgeous in a bikini and an evening gown, of course, and maybe possibly winning the heart of one Mr. Ryan Lochte. Here’s our logic:

1) She’s the first Miss USA to earn the title since 1997 and the first Miss Rhode Island to win it ever. We think New England deserves some good news this week.

2) She’s a music geek. She’s played the cello since age 6, performed at Carnegie Hall with a youth orchestra at age 12, and went to the same music camp (Brevard, in North Carolina) as some of our own friends. Watch her play a bit here.

3) Miss Rhode Island was the Boston University student’s first-ever pageant, and she entered it wearing a dress she rented for $20 on Rent the Runway.

4) She’s not fancy. She told Shape that her biggest craving during the Miss USA contest was peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

5) She believes transgender women deserve to compete in the contest too. “I feel like in America, we all have the right to be happy and the right to live freely, so that’s how I stand on it,” she told BU Today. “It all goes back to the foundation of this country and freedom of choice.”

So, congrats, girl! We fully encourage you to celebrate your victory with a certain Olympic gold medalist soon — just ’cause we’d love to see those photos.

Barack Obama Shows Off Playful Side, Just As He’s Named The TIME Person Of The Year

The point of this post is that, in a nutshell, the President Barack Obama is just plain cool.

Picture: Barack Obama And Staffer's Kid Dresses As Spiderman

The point of this post is that, in a nutshell, the President Barack Obama is just plain cool. He’s been named as the Time Person of the Year for 2012 which we can all agree on being a pretty awesome thing. But our attention was diverted by this ridiculously adorable photograph that popped up on the POTUS’ twitter account around the time that the announcement was made which was captioned as, “Photo of the day: President Obama gets caught in Spider-Man’s web.” It’s the photo for a lot of days, as far as we’re concerned! The photograph was taken by the White House photographer Pete Souza and shows the President goofing around the W.H, playing with one of the staffer’s kids. The little tyke’s dressed as Spider-man (good choice, kid) who’s pretending to shoot a spider web at Obama. Obama, of course, pretends to be stuck in Spider-kid’s imaginary web. It looks totally spontaneous and we love the President for being this guy. Souza has been responsible for a lot of awesome photographs of Obama — another favorite being of the Prez, tired and smiling, and pulling off his bowtie as the elevator doors of the private residence in the White House are about to close. Here’s a nice colletion of those photos, in honor of Obama becoming Person of The Year.
