Watch this video. In it, some grizzled old dudes read out loud the YouTube comments left by two brilliant teens arguing about something called “The Bieber” and a “One Direction.” I could do some Google research but I’m going to assume, given the way the comments are super hurtful, that “The Bieber” is some kind of religion or deep personal philosophy. No one would say such terrible things about another living human being unless it was about the very essence of life itself.
Just did the Google search. I am disappointed. Watch the video anyways.

Musician/producer/real-life Dorian Gray Pharrel Williams made a 24-hour long music video. It’s a bunch of clips of his four-minute-long song “Happy” and features him and a bunch of regular folks prancing around. It’s the perfect thing for Thanksgiving. There’s no way you can watch this music video and NOT be happy. Even if your Mom and sister are at each other’s throats at the Thanksgiving table about her latest piercing, you will still be happy.
Watch "24 Hours of Happy" off this Thanksgiving if only to avoid the fighting. We jest. Happy Thanksgiving, ya’ll.

This weekend, at 11pm Hawaiian time, the last movie was rented from a Blockbuster. Somewhere, someplace, a VHS tape rewinder came to a stop.
In evidence that the universe is controlled by a desperate TV writer, the last movie rented was ‘This is the End’. Uhm, hey God, subtle much? That’s like the last movie being played at the last drive in being “The Last Airbender.” What? That doesn’t even make sense. Shut up I’m a blogger, OK, not Aaron Sorkin.
But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of franchisee Blockbusters, Blockbuster kiosks, and even Blockbuster streaming.

Flying sucks. First the TSA gets you to second base and then they insist your carry-on has to be checked. A WARRIOR NEVER GOES ANYWHERE WITHOUT HIS BAT’LETH.
Fortunately someone is making air travel better. Virgin’s new safety video has got everything you need for flight safety: sassy, sexy stewardesses; sassy, funky 6-year old crunkers; and sassy, robotic business travelers. I think this means from now on only dance crews are allowed to fly Virgin. Which is sweet because me and the Dragon Boys Krew are ready for a battle anywhere, even at 40,000 feet.
Word to your mother.

It’s Halloween and you don’t have a costume. You have two choices. One, put on those acid wash jeans you “ironically” bought at American Apparel and go as an “80s kid,” even though you were born in 1993 and everyone will just say “Culta, you’re just dressed like normal. Those jeans suck.”
Option two: go as this sweet sweet Social Media Professional. It’s complete with things like buzzwords, inflated job title, and a sense of entitlement. What it doesn’t come with: a place to hang your political science degree from Arizona State. “Culta, even with that costume, you’re still just dressed like yourself.” SHUT UP I MEANT TO DO THAT.

Why am I just now hearing about this? Aside from this wildly glamorous blogging gig, I have two other forms of income. One, hoarding and selling Twinkies via the black market. Two, barista. I literally live off of the change in your pocket.
So I’m excited about DipJar, a little device that you can stick your credit card into and can be used to tip scruffy and lovable food service workers when you don’t have any quarters. A set amount is automatically deducted from your card without you having to sign anything. Now what’s your excuse?
In the meantime, hit me up if you want some illicit Ho-Hos.

I’ve been laughing at this Getty Critics site for days. OK it hasn’t been days, it’s been twenty minutes. But I’m a millennial and we can meet, fall in love, marry, and divorce in that amount of time.
The site was made by some art directors who kept finding ridiculous stock photography images and were compelled by the patron saint of art directors to talk smack. Trust me, as a millennial, 90% of my friends are either art directors or breakdancers, and no one messes with art directors. They’re like the mob of the creative professions. Once, I saw an art director Photoshop a guy’s head onto a cat, and a cat’s head onto the guy’s body. HARSH.

There’s probably been too much talk about zombies lately, huh? THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO THINK. Don’t fall for the zombie propoganda. Prepare for the inevitable with these three iPhone games.
Plants vs. Zombies: A variation of the classic tower defense. This game will be good for developing that anti-zombie strategic thinking.
Zombieville USA 2: Sometimes you need to cut the bull and get down to plain ol’ shotgunning the undead. Zombieville is a classic shoot ‘em up that you’ll play to the last bullet.
Zombie Gunship: Zombies. AC-130 Gunship with 105mm canons. Read that again. Yeah.

The other day Seamless went down and I was forced to actually cook. I was pretty upset. But while I watched my Tangwich cook in the microwave, I realized the problem wasn’t Seamless. It was me. I had a #Futureworldproblem.
A #Futureworldproblem is like a #Firstworldproblem but comes from our over-reliance on things that honestly should make this world a sweet ass place to exist. Magic food app stops working? #Futureworldproblem. HD screens are a little too “real” for you? #Futureworldproblem. Technology keeps extending your life and now you’re bored? #Futureworldproblem.
Imagine the #Futureworldproblems of the FUTURE. “The nanobots I made keep trying to replace me. #Futureworldproblem. Also Seamless is down, AGAIN.”
What are your #Futureworldproblems?

Some people are trying to make GIFs fancy and artsy. “Uhm, how is a GIF of twerking NOT art?” I just said aloud. “Easy,” says this article. Artists like Rebecca Mock use GIFs to make sweet illustrations. Her stuff appears on the New York Times (which I’m told, is like a paper-based Buzzfeed) and other magazines.
Commissioned GIFs can be real subtle stuff, taking advantage of gentle motions and quiet scenes. So they’re a lot less like twerking, and more like a cat falling off a kitchen counter. The world is so beautiful sometimes.
