This is glorious. So, Freddie Prinze Jr.–you may remember him from the ’90s–is doing stuff again, I guess, and he had some choice words to say about the time he spent working with Kiefer Sutherland on 24:
“I did ’24,’ it was terrible. I hated every moment of it,” Prinze said. “Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That’s not me talking trash, I’d say it to his face, I think everyone that’s worked with him has said that.”
Well, okay, that’s probably somewhat reasonable. Kiefer has had his troubles. But oh, my friends, Freddie did not stop there:
“I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ’s sake and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer,” he said. “But, at least he was cool and tall. I didn’t have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do. Just put the guy on an apple box or don’t hire me next time. You know I’m 6 feet and he’s 5’4.”
AT LEAST HE WAS COOL AND TALL. Shots fired, Kiefer.
I’ve had to write those “about me”-type blurbs in dating profiles a few times and my first instinct is always to put something cryptic and standoffish (my last Tinder bio is a quote I lifted from a Wikipedia article on slime molds*). As you can imagine this doesn’t really work, and I wonder if maybe I should actually put normal relatable information like a normal human being, such as ‘likes food’ or ‘goes out sometimes but also stays in sometimes’ (CAN YOU IMAGINE). While I assume this has a broader appeal, it feels like a compromise of my personality and does not adequately prepare a suitor for when I casually drop zillions of facts about animal mating habits. So I guess my question is, when dating (or making friends in general), should you start off pretending to be normal and slowly ease them into your weirdness, or just start with that right off the bat?

Like, the heaviest breathing. Like, one or both of them may have some sort of lung disease heavy breathing. Like, pervert on the phone heavy breathing. Marissa and Ryan are officially a Couple now and they are celebrating by making out in the poolhouse. They take a kissing break to talk about how Marissa hasn’t talked to her mom in a while and how much she hates her mom and how she needs to get back to her dad’s shitty apartment soon and then Ryan suggests that they go on a real date this weekend and then they start making out again and aren’t they lucky they have a whole poolhouse to themselves to pant into each other’s mouths while they dry hump? Really the setup could not be any better. There’s nothing at all that could get in the way of their heavy petting.
The nerd utopia/hellish landscape known as Comic-Con took place over the past weekend, bringing San Diego (and the internet) the latest news in the world of geek television, film, and other media. There was a lot of information disseminated over the course of four days, and this was probably one of the more underwhelming years to date, so I’m here to give you the highlights and spare you the excessive celebrity fawning and not-so-flattering cosplay.
In a brilliant attempt at diversion from the recent plagiarizing scandal, BuzzFeed released on Friday an irresistible story of human-/canine-baby love, and it is magnificent. Brace your hearts and tear ducts for the photos and a must-see video. I think we can all agree that BuzzFeed is officially forgiven for hiring a Glenn Beck sloppy second in the first place?
It’s Friday! Party time! Or relax quietly time, if you’re me. I’m very tired. What are your weekend plans? Are you doing anything fun? Will you eat delicious food? That’s my primary definition of “anything fun,” but I’m sure there are other things, too.
Researchers at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany recently found that using TV to unwind after a long day can actually make you feel like a failure. The thinking is that when you’re binge-watching Orange Is The New Black, a little voice in your head guilt-trips you to believing that you could be doing other, more useful things with your time. However, the scientists stress that the results are far from conclusive, and that other factors may come into play. I propose that one of those factors is watching kids almost half your age invent something so amazing you question what you are doing with your life. If only there was some kind of food I could eat to feel better about all of this…
