What's Up With That Trivago Guy?

by Todd Wasserman

such a stud i want to fuck him in a bad hotel somewhere and then like order pizza or maybe pizza first


One of the most unexpected marketing success stories in recent months has been the ascendance of Trivago, a Düsseldorf-based travel search engine.

Some data from researcher YouGov's BrandIndex shows Trivago has come out of nowhere to become as well-known among travelers as Priceline. Some 29% of 3,200 leisure travelers polled by YouGov recall seeing an ad for Trivago — the same amount as Priceline. Expedia got 19% in the same poll. Tripadvisor, which recently launched a $30 million ad campaign, went from 5% to 15%, which is about half of Trivago's score.

‘Rituals’ – A New Series of Ceramic Alpacas by Monica Ramos

by Philip Kennedy


Ritauls by Monica Ramos

Ceramic alpacas! What’s not to love about a ceramic alpaca. Firstly, it’s an alpaca. Secondly, it’s made from ceramics. Thirdly, it looks terrific. And fourthly it works as a plant holder! Not to sound like a broken record, but what’s not to love!

Ritauls by Monica Ramos

These fantastic designs are the work of Monica Ramos (an illustrator who we featured on the site a couple of months ago). Created under the name Rituals, Monica sees this work as simply an extension of her image-making. These objects are tangible, functional and just as full of personalty as her other work. I love them.

Unfortunately this edition sold out almost immediately, but you can still keep abreast of further work by visiting the Rituals shop.

Nora Luther Photographs Recipes As Dynamic, Floating Ingredients

by Bobby Solomon

this is kinda pretty & neat

Nora Luther Turns Recipes Into Flying Feasts

The earliest incarnations of the recipe come from 1600 BC in Babylonia, and since then, not a lot has changed (although we don’t use stone tablets anymore). A list of ingredients, a set of directions with cook times – this is really all you need. Berlin based photographer Nora Luther though has come up with a clever way of reimagining the recipe, by photographing all of the elements flying in mid-air.

Nora Luther Turns Recipes Into Flying Feasts

As she says in the project description, her intention is that “the look of the ready cooked dish is left to one`s own imagination.” The way she’s photographed the pieces of the whole are stunning, like a food ballet captured in mid leap.

Mr Twin Sister - "Blush"

by marc

i'm lovin' it

Long Island's Twin Sister has been relatively quiet as of late, but all of that is about to change. First, they're now Mr. Twin Sister and second, they have announced the follow-up to 2011's In Heaven. The new record will be out on September 22 and you can check out the lead single "Blush" right now.

It's got a down-tempo, James Bond, noir-lounge vibe to it that isn't too far off from the smokey haze of 90s-era Portishead and thus making it one of their grandest statements to date.

Katy Perry’s “This Is How We Do” Video: Watch The Color-Drenched Spectacle

by Robbie Daw

my art pop could mean anything.

Katy Perry This Is How We Do music video Prism

If Katy Perry was going for a dazzling, eye-popping colorgasm with her video for “This Is How We Do,” the fifth single released off Prism, then she can stamp “accomplished” across this particular mission. The visual for the party-vibe pop jam features Rolling Stone cover girl Katy and a pair of her girlfriends tearing through hair colors and ’80s-leaning outfits as they strut and twirl through a series of vivid, computer-generated backgrounds. They’ve also got a crew of handsome male dancers on hand to serve them popsicles and assemble a Maserati. Convenient Perry!

Did we mention that there’s a (pretty realistic) Mariah Carey impersonator? Or a twerking ice cream cone?! Good God — watch above!

Get an eyeful of even more pop music coverage, from artist interviews to exclusive performances, on Idolator’s YouTube channel.

Intelligent People Tend To Stay Up Later

by Bobby Solomon

that bulge tho

Intelligent People Tend To Stay Up Later

Lauren Martin has a fantastic piece on something you may not believe: the more intelligent you are the more likely you are to stay up late. Compiling several studies she found that people who are extremely intelligent tend to sleep during the following hours:

Weekday: 12:29 am -7:52 am
Weekend: 1:44 am -11:07 am

Now, just because you may sleep at these times doesn’t mean you’re a genius, but Lauren has made a pretty great list which might explain why this trend might be happening.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine S2 Premiere Will Host 'She is the Woooooorst' Jenny Slate


guess i'll have to watch an episode of brooklyn 99 :|

Looking for a little more of Jenny Slate in your life after seeing her gripping flick, Obvious Child? Well, you’re in luck, folks, because the multi talented Slate is about to guest star in one of your favorite shows. Namely, the much talked about and lauded, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. According to Entertainment Weekly, the season old comedy is set to welcome Slate to its season premiere episode as a, ”street-smart mob mistress named Bianca.” While I don’t exactly think of “mob mistress” when it comes to Slate, I’m sure she’ll slay the role.

After all, Slate is a funny woman first and foremost, so this comedy show shouldn’t be anything other than the standard protocol for her. Also, as Brooklyn Nine-Nine enters its second, much awaited season, it’s encouraging to see that they can welcome different talents, like Slate, to give it that extra edge. Though, arguably, they don’t need that much of an edge if you look at their shiny Golden Globes, one for Best Show - Television Series Musical or Comedy and the other to Andy Samberg for Best Actor - Television Series Musical or Comedy.

:] !

The B—- is back!

Logo has acquired the eight unaired episodes of ABC’s late, underrated comedy Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, and will air them Saturdays at 10/9c beginning July 19.

Leading into the first of those eight eps, the cable net will air a 16-episode B—-marathon from 1 pm-10 pm.

ABC axed the Krysten Ritter sitcom last year midway through its second season. Those eight never-before-seen half-hours have been collecting dust ever since.


I don't know which mod is on right now, but we always post from TVLine, and it's not listed here, which I always check before posting.

Nina Persson – “Food For The Beast” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

by Stereogum

god she is just the best

Nina Persson, the Swedish singer who has fronted the playful pop-rock band the Cardigans on and off since 1992 and has also featured in the trio A Camp, released her debut solo album Animal Heart this year. One of the standout tracks was the pulsing mid-tempo disco track “Food For The Beast,” which now has an eye-catching video by Tomas Melinder of the Malmö creative firm Top Dollar. The clip finds Persson behind and in front of various flashes of light — disco balls, video projections, undefined ethereal glimmers — while continuing to be the charismatic performer we’ve always known her to be. Watch below.

Pocket Art Director

by Bobby Solomon


Pocket Art Director

Feeling unsure of your creative decisions? The team at Fuzzco have created Pocket Art Director, the perfect way to get feedback without the annoying art director breathing down your neck. They’ve cleverly thought of three experiences: one is a digital version of the die which you can try online, you can print it out, or you can buy a real life version that resembles the design-y version of something you’d find in a D&D shop. Genius.

An Important Update on Frosty, the Tiny Baby Goat with the Tiny Baby Goat Wheelchair

by Emma Carmichael


by Emma Carmichael

Frosty, the Tiny Baby Goat with the Tiny Baby Goat Wheelchair, is now prancing around on his healed Tiny Baby Goat legs sans the Tiny Baby Goat Wheelchair. "It just goes to show," Edgar's Mission founder Pam Ahern says in the video above, "when you really are determined, there really isn't any mountain high enough to stop you." Pam, you're laying it on pretty thick this morning, and I'm OK with that. [HuffPo]

Cold Specks – “Absisto” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

by Stereogum

into this

London via Canada “doom soul” act Cold Specks will release an album called Neuroplasticity on Mute this August. The first single is “Absisto,” a foreboding minor-key track laced with atmospheric sounds of rock and orchestral varieties and prone to cacophonous outbursts. In a Canadian forest, director Ian Pons Jewell filmed a video that depicts a harrowing encounter and what appears to be some sort of mystic ceremony presided over by Cold Specks leader Al Spx. It’s appropriately freaky for an artist whose new album also features Michael Gira, yet the song flickers with an emotive warmth that reminds you Cold Specks also opened for Joni Mitchell at her 70th birthday party. Watch the video below.

A Man Added Himself to Every Frame of a Britney Spears Music Video

by Brian Koerber



Living fancy like Britney Spears isn't easy. You have to work for it.

Gal Volinez committed some serious time and effort to the task. He inserted himself into every scene of Spears' video for "Work Bitch," replacing the pop star with footage of himself. If this isn't how you spent your weekend, you wasted your Saturday.



It's a little on the odd side, to be sure. But you have to hand it to him: Every scene and dance move is perfectly replicated, then laid over Spears' original.

Taylor Swift Day-Drinks With Barefoot Contessa Host Ina Garten and Tries Her First-Ever Whiskey Sour


Ina <3 <3 <3

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Taylor Swift and Ina Garten recently became fast friends, and it's all thanks to Food Network Magazine!

The "Sweeter Than Fiction" singer, 24, and the Barefoot Contessa host, 66, teamed up for the magazine's first-ever July/August Music Issue, on stands June 24. Taylor, who owns all of Ina's cookbooks, traveled from her Tribeca apartment in New York City to the Hamptons to meet the celebrity chef. Taylor invited her mother, Andrea Finlay, and brother, Austin Swift, to join her.

When the trio arrived, Ina was in the midst of slicing warm date bread and getting coffee ready for her guests. "Just another day at Barefoot Contessa," joked the TV personality, whose show debuted in 2002.

Taylor and Ina baked a mustard-roasted fish in the oven and spread whipped cream on a Pavlova, all while bonding over their mutual frustration for people who don't like to eat. "I'll cook for these boys, and they'll be like, 'I'm on a diet,'" the country crossover artist said. "I'm like, 'I can't hang out with you.'"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ina then shared a similar story in which a guest claimed she was on a cleanse before downing an entire whiskey sour—and then had the gall to ask for another! "Oh, I've never had a whiskey sour," Taylor said.

As luck would have it, Ina had the ingredients on hand. "I have some in my refrigerator!" she told Taylor.
"Hey, Andrea," the singer called. "Come over here. We're day-drinking!" (flop)

Andrea and Austin joined the duo and tasted Ina's favorite cocktail. The foursome then started spooning the Pavlova. "I don't always eat it this way," Ina said, laughing about their group decision to forgo plates.

During their impromptu sit-down lunch, Taylor invited her "hero" Ina to visit her home and see her perform one day. After they left, Ina looked around her kitchen and marveled, "Did that really happen?"

Jessie Ware – “Tough Love”

by Stereogum

Devotion, the 2012 album from the British soul singer Jessie Ware, was one of the finest, most composed, most expressive debuts in recent memory. And judging by her new single “Tough Love,” there’s every chance that she’ll be able to pull something like that off again. Zane Lowe debuted “Tough Love,” which was co-written and produced by BenZel, on BBC Radio 1 today, and it’s a lovely piece of synthetic blue-eyed R&B with the same sense of space and sweep that Ware seems to have deep in her bones. Listen to it below.

Theresa Caputo, The Long Island Medium, Investigated For Fraud



Theresa Caputo, better known as the Long Island Medium, is at the center of a fraud investigation after several people complained that Caputo’s psychic abilities are just a hoax. According to Radar Online, former audience members and viewers believe that the Long Island Medium isn’t who she claims to be.

The creator of fraud website, Ron Tebo, said:

“Theresa is like a vulture preying on the most vulnerable. I think it’s despicable. She schmoozes with the audience, and wins them over with her big hair, designer shoes and comedy. When they trust her, she goes in for the kill. She’ll ask the group a question like, ‘Who lost an older male relative to heart problems?’ It’s the oldest trick in the medium’s book.”

This isn’t the first time that people have doubted the “talents” of the Long Island Medium, but if she has been fraudulent in her activities, she will have herself in quite the hole (and chances are, she didn’t see that coming). While some people still enjoy Caputo and love what she does (essentially, she gives people hope), others are no longer buying into her “gimmick” and say that they will no longer watch her show.

A former fan explained:

“I was a Theresa Caputo believer and watched every one of her shows,. My young daughter died this summer and I needed to believe in something. After tonight, I am no longer a believer. There were many grieving people there, hoping for closure, or a sign from their loved ones and 2,490 people left defeated and deflated.”

Theresa Caputo is still moving forward despite these not-so-new claims, however. Although her whole gig could soon come to an end, the Long Island Medium isn’t canceling any appearances or slowing down in the least. According to Huffington Post, Caputo recently spoke about how she told her husband about her “gift.” Perhaps this makes her seem more “human.”

“So when I told him, you know, I can speak to dead people, he saw that I was physically and emotionally getting better. So he’s like, ‘you know what hon, if you think talking to dead people makes you feel better, you keep going right ahead, because it’s making my life a hell of a lot easier.’”

Caputo said that even she was skeptical at first, but after going through the motions with a few people, she couldn’t deny it. She says that witnessing it firsthand makes a big difference in what you think it real and what you know is real. The problem is that some people who have witnessed it in person are beginning to pick up on signs that it may not be real at all.

A 'Mario Kart' Drinking Game? Shell Yeah!

by Christine Erickson

this is cute but i guess this would only apply if you're WATCHING the game because obviously you need two hands and complete concentration at all times for mario kart


For decades, Mario Kart has tested friendships with ruthless competition and turtle shells. Despite being "just a game," the truth is that we've all felt a little exaggerated rage over losing first place to a frickin' banana peel.

Now that Mario Kart 8 has officially released on Wii U, it's time for another dose of borderline unhealthy competition

To alleviate some of the stress you felt as a kid in the '90s, we decided to spike the game — no, not like the blue Koopa shell, but with some (responsible) adult fun.

Ready? Here we go!

Stacey Dash Joins Fox News


RIP Stacey Dash

Fox News Channel has gone outside the typical crowd in its latest contributor hire. Following a few weeks of talks, actress Stacey Dash has signed with the network.

The 47-year-old, best known for starring alongside Alicia Silverstone in 1995 hit Clueless has inked a deal to offer cultural analysis and commentary across daytime and primetime.

"Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints amongst her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates – we’re pleased to have her join Fox News," said network executive vp of news, Bill Shine.

Dash is no stranger to politics. An outspoken conservative on Twitter, her endorsement of Mitt Romney in 2012 landed her several television appearances -- including a day as a guest panelist on The View. The time since has seen Dash move more into commentary.

Still a working actress, Dash's other credits include stints on TV series Single Ladies, The Game and the ABC adaptation of Clueless.

Tiny Baby Goat Takes First Steps With Tiny Baby Goat Wheelchair

by Jia Tolentino


by Jia Tolentino

Via Modern Farmer, please meet Frosty: a perfect little creature who was born with a condition that filled his back legs with terrible baby goat poison ("pus and toxins," according to the video), immobilizing him until the good hearts at Edgar's Mission equipped him with the most ballin' tiny wheelchair in the world. From the Australian animal sanctuary's about page:

Edgar’s Mission was founded by Pam Ahern and named after her first rescued pig, Edgar. Edgar Alan Pig, aka “the pig who started it all” sadly passed away shortly after his 7th birthday party in April 2010.

EDGAR ALAN PIG. They've got pictures and biographies for many of their rescued animals, including another wheelchair boss, a piglet named Leon Trotsky. And on a related note, Aeon's got a piece up right now about why we like looking at animals so much.
