The celebs who came out in 2013. Big year! Ben Whishaw is gay?!

Fascinating story about an Ayn Rand obsessed guy who took over Sears and has now run it into the ground in five years.

I’m on the podcast Yo Is This Racist? all week long! Tune in every day!

This woman made an art project out of being “kindly” harassed by men on the street.

I wrote a thing for Rookie about how it’s okay; nay, a good thing to change your mind!

Corgi. On. A. Carousel.

These things are normally cheesy, but I like this list of things that mentally strong people avoid doing.

A guide to hipster racism. A must read, despite whatever opinions you have about Jezebel.

Carrboro NC! December 23rd! Kumail does a show at Local 506- get tickets now!

Glen Danzig gave birth to twins!

This is fascinating: purebred dog breeds from 100 years ago and today. The way we’ve molded these dogs into freak shows is startling.

Starting Tuesday, you can get tickets to The Meltdown/Grawlix mashup in Denver on January 10th!

I don’t care about the stuff for this season of Real World, but I do care how zeitgeisty that show was in my adolescence.

Jay-Z and Beyonce went vegan, and went to Cafe Gratitude┬ámere minutes after I did. Sooooooo we’re friends.

Three horrifyingly racist news stories to start out your morning angry.

I was on the podcast How Did This Get Made? discussing that old gem Hudson Hawk.

The Elan Dale/Diane plane note-passing off was a hoax. Soooooo, there’s that.

These reviews for a 5 lb bag of gummi bears are great.

Kim Kardashian had a charity auction for the Phillipines, and she gave them a whole 10% of the proceeds!

Kumail and Jerrod Carmichael are doing a show on 12/23 in Carrboro NC! Come on down!

A very sexy picture of Lady Gaga nude after the jump! No bits, I just genuinely think it’s hot. NSFW

The lead singer of a band called LostProphets pled guilty to attempting to rape a baby this past week, which calls into question: can you separate the art from the artist?

Evan Rachel Wood is correct.

Any musician who is a gay icon should at least be able to speak about the gay community without this much weirdness- Britney Spears, everyone.

The sweet story behind the photo that humanized AIDS for a lot of people in the 80s.

Drew Barrymore in Playboy in 1995. NSFW.

The passion of parenting. I loved this essay in NY Times.

Love this: Feminism According to Stock Photography.

This Funny or Die sketch is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time.

But also, the Bugs sketch from Mike O’Brien on SNL this past weekend destroyed me. The way the bug answers Peeta Mellark makes me nauseous with laughter.

This week in moron advertisting, at VICE!

I wrote this piece about my sister and I for Rookie, and it was illustrated wonderfully by Esme.

Seth Rogan and James Franco recreate that weird Kimye video SHOT FOR SHOT, and it is breathtaking to behold.

I love these six-second screenplay tips!

I wrote about how I went from being the baby of my family to being the responsible one among my friends, for Rookie!

Breaking Bad Season 5 bloopers!

New Indoor Kids episode up today, and it’s a Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show/Indoor Kids crossover!

Ron Weasley’s ice cream truck.

An artist drew faces and asked a 4 year old to draw the bodies. It’s oddly gorgeous.

Conservative Christians leaving fake $10 bills as tips, because why wouldn’t you?

I love this! 20 pictures where guns have been replaced with thumbs up!

This video has some good points about social media and loneliness but is also very judgmental and says some lame shit about what makes up a real friendship and intimacy. But I present it, nonetheless.

Damn. Tammy Duckworth, a House Representative from IL, dresses down a guy who is using vet services after hurting his foot in prep school while playing football.

Don’t buy boneless skinless chicken. Here’s why. Boneless skinless chicken breast has tasted gross to me for about three years now, and it’s nice to have some backup.

I know I’m late to this train, since they won the YouTube award for best everything, but this video for Girls Generation’s “I Got a Boy” is chaotic as hell and I can’t stop watching it.

A nice collection of the reasons famous women say they’re not feminist, proving that they don’t know what feminism actually means.

I was on Alison Rosen’s lovely podcast, and talked about menstruation, working with mental illness, and waaaaaaay more.

Penis facts!

I also pop up here and there on GameTrailers look back at the last generation of gaming with I Love Last Gen! Episode 1 is here! And Episode 2 is here!

And also I was on John Roy’s podcast Don’t Ever Change, talking about high school. It got gritty.

Amazon is trying to get indie bookstores to kill themselves.

I’m gonna be reading from one of my pieces in the Rookie Yearbook, Year Two, on Thursday at Skylight Books here in LA! Come on down!

The real Lone Ranger was an African American man, and his story is badass.

A guide to the horror movies on Netflix, just in time for Halloween.

This is my Tumblr, and it’s got fun stuff on it!

The Daily Show proves my point about the South wonderfully: sure, some of our policies are ridiculous, but the people themselves are gonna love a gay couple in love. WATCH!

This piece is about people who shake their heads in pity at poor people who spend their money on status symbols. Read it. Here’s a quote from it:

What we forget, if we ever know, is that what we know now about status and wealth creation and sacrifice are predicated on who we are, i.e. not poor. If you change the conditions of your not-poor status, you change everything you know as a result of being a not-poor. You have no idea what you would do if you were poor until you are poor. And not intermittently poor or formerly not-poor, but born poor, expected to be poor and treated by bureaucracies, gatekeepers and well-meaning respectability authorities as inherently poor. Then, and only then, will you understand the relative value of a ridiculous status symbol to someone who intuits that they cannot afford to not have it.

Our Indoor Kids merch page got a facelift! Go check it out, donate with our new donate button, and buy out our old merchandise before the new stuff becomes available! Boom!

The genius Rich Juzwiak sifts through Katy Perry’s new album to find the 226 phrases she repeats over and over and over.

This is a list of the 26 fastest-cancelled shows, and it is a painful list to see. And remember, no one even bought the pilot you wrote!

The psychology of online comments. Thanks New Yorker.

A lovely essay about love, dads, alcoholism, and the Legend of Zelda from my pal John Devore.
