Bad Lip Reading: Beyonce

I don't want to say this is the best thing that's come out of the inauguration...but it's pretty good.

Fred Armisen Wants to Tell You About Death Grips

On Rachael Ray's show creatively named Rachael (don't get confused with Katie Couric's show Katie), she gives guests 60 seconds to say whatever they want. Fred Armisen talked about Death Grips and laundry. Not sure how those two are related.

By Far the Best Tax Commercial Ever

A Brief History of Jenny Lewis

Jenny Lewis has called her next solo album 80% done. (!!!) Let's take a short tour of Jenny Lewis history.

She started her career doing commercials, like this one for Toys R Us.

She taught us  how to angst-ily use a popcorn maker, because a microwave doesn't cut it UGH PARENTS why can't you just let me make popcorn and leave me alone life is so hard.

She really loved cereal....

She danced with cereal chefs!!!

and she's gotta have her pops UGH MOM WHY ARE WE IN THE WOODS  I JUST WANNA HAVE MY POPS (she had mommy issues from a young age).

She starred in Troop Beverly Hills. . .

. . . and The Wizard

And wore HATS!!! (maybe skip to 4:00) COOL HATS JEN! And nice purple trampoline sweatsuit. You were always a fashion icon. "Without the planet we wouldn't be here . . . stop using aerosol hairspray." Someone give this girl a Nobel prize!

She was looking so grunge in the movie Foxfire. (Yes, that is Angelina Jolie second from the right.)

And finally started Rilo Kiley with the bully from Boy Meets World.

She sang on The Postal Service's album and played Ben Gibbard's wife in this music video where this 70's  family is like you must can peaches, learn to play the synthesizer, and prepare for the apocalypse if you want to be a part of this family!

Meanwhile, still being awesome in Rilo Kiley.

She dated Conor Oberst in the most perfect relationship that should have lasted forever. . . (I'm crying.)

And teamed up with the Waston Twins to bring us Rabbit Fur Coat. Sarah Silverman is in this music video. Girl power heaven!

Rilo Kiley released Under the Blacklight in 2007, which was a definite departure from their usual style but still great.

She went back to her solo projects, and brought us Acid Tongue.

And in 2010 she released an album with her boyfriend Jonathan Rice (who is MEH) which I like and literally everyone else I know hates. 

I can't wait for her next album! She's been my idol probably since I was 15. I even dyed my hair red once but i didn't really work.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: This woman has practically had the same hairstyle her entire life.

Beyonce Runs the World

Beyonce lip-synched the national anthem during President Obama's inauguration, and people are freaking out.

"If BeyoncĂ© lip-synched the national anthem, how do we know President Obama didn’t lip-sync his oath of office?” he said. “If that’s the case, he’s not legally President. But just to be on the safe side, he should resign anyway.” [via new yorker]

^^Okay, that's just ridiculous. (And a joke, but definitely shows how much people are overreacting.)
WHO CARES IT'S BEYONCE. She runs this world. 

Too busy being Beyonce
to care what you think

Spotify Emails

I personally believe that in the future, Spotify emails will be worth $1 each and I will be a billionaire! Thanks Spotify!!

"This School is Literally Full of Crap"

A sewage line at my high school broke, and the school is flooded with poop. 
[on 9gag here]

I am trying to explain to these children that this is the plot of the movie Donnie Darko, and if a large rabbit named Frank told you to do this, you are going to meet a beautiful girl tomorrow but also KILL THE RABBIT BEFORE HE KILLS YOU WITH AN AIRPLANE TURBINE THROUGH TIME TRAVEL OR HOWEVER THAT WORKED.

Give Us a Mystery!

Do you think MK+A would be contributing more or less to society if they had actually become detectives instead of making clothes for Wal-Mart? Food for thought. Who does make the finest pizza?

Best Destiny's Child Outfits

Destiny's Child gets a bad rap on the internet for being notoriously tackily dressed, but this is something I strongly disagree with. Destiny's Child have always been trailblazing--in fashion, music, feminism, etc. Here's the BEST of their outfits, and why they rule.

"Surviror" outfits
Camo is going to come back in a weird cool ironic way and it's going to be awesome. You heard it here first. DC was soooo ahead of its time.
"Lose My Breath" outfits
 These outfits are amazing in the sense that they are totally hood but still classy. I especially love Kelly's outfit--it's like glam 70's disco from the streets. Get in my closet. The weird pink and red disco suits they wear in the video are also awesome.
"Say My Name" garage dance outfits
I am somewhat opposed to orange patent leather, but these work. These outfits are so sexy and cool, and high-waisted leather pants are so in even now. The dance they do is so powerful and I love the way it just says DONT EVEN MESS WITH ME I KNOW I'M HOT! I think this is one of the best videos OF ALL TIME. (in Kanye West voice)
Belly-bearing Boy Scout look
THESE RULE! Boyscouts are great and Destiny's Child is great, what is there not to like. (Although B, that hat is seriously gross. You can do better.)
10/10, would like to own!
Sexy Navy (?) Uniforms
Uniforms again, huh? So these kind of look like stripper outfits or halloween costumes, but whatever. I think the social commentary DC is making on women and the military is groundbreaking and fascinating. 

Empowered Cavewomen
Okay, so the background on this one is weird. But again, social commentary! Why do we hear so much about cavemen and so little about cavewomen. Definitely a pitch for herstory. I give the idea a 10/10 but the outfits....
Glittery Seaweed Gowns
Maybe these dresses make it seem like DC is just emerging from the ocean, covered in algae, but they are so creative and revealing in such unexpected ways (ie: Michelle only has clothing on one side of her body and B's stomach has a huge X over it). Great work Mama Knowles. Plus there are five grammy's on the ground. Holding them would obstruct the view of the dresses.
"Soldier" Mobster and Great Dane Look
Military reference again! These are so intimidating. Empowering, really!! The polka dots and onesies are so cute though. They could sell this stuff at Forever 21 and everyone would be all over it.
Cowgirl Chic
This is what everyone should have worn in Coyote Ugly. DC is just like that movie with better singing and better outfits.
Native American Beauties
They respect other cultures! For some reason these just seem really expensive to me. How much does that turquoise stuff cost? A lot right? 
Note how they did respectful bowing poses instead of making Asian eyes or peace signs. These girls should be ambassadors!

Not Sorry About the Saris
They even sort of look Indian here, so that's dedication. These look classy and respectful, while still totally bumpin. And again, sexy but culturally sensitive.

 Okay, so they really like dressing Indian:

But they still know America is #1.

(These are the opposite of Old Navy Flag Tees.)
continuing on....

Cute n Crafty
They look cute and fun, and it probably took a really long time to knit all that. A for effort.

Swirls and Curls
I don't like these ones but I can't say anything bad about DC so...
Blue Babes
These are so pretty and sparkly! I love Kelly's dress, it's classic! If you say you don't like these you're lying. 
Blue Hawaii
Transforming that shirt your creepy uncle wore in Maui into beautiful outfits is quite a feat, and the girls look so good.
Tommy Hilfiger Ad
I did not know that black people liked Tommy Hilfiger until just now.
Beyonce's belly jewelery is seriously fierce. Like Sasha Fierce. These outfits probably single-handedly started the gypsy skirt trend where for two years every girl looked like Cinderella [when she was mopping floors, before she got pretty] and it was disgusting.
6/10 for accidentally starting a bad fashion craze

Destiny's Child is the best.

"Kitty Kat" by Beyonce

Queen B wrote a song about cats. Sort of strange but very relevant to the blog interests, I feel. Enjoy!

News 11/16

Well, it was sort of a weird news day. Here's why:

Honey Boo Boo's Uncle--who she calls "Uncle Poodle"--was interviewed by a gay magazine and disclosed that he is HIV positive.


Anderson Cooper dated girls to get to their brothers.

Neko Case's cat attacked a bag of carrots and her arm.

Taylor Swift is in the studio writing more music. NOOOOO!!!!! We'll know it's about Harry Styles when she drops a line about his four nipples.

Fecal transplants can cure certain intestinal infections. A true friend is one who gives you their poop.

Song of the Day

This music video is awesome, sort of reminds me of videos for Duck Sauce, and Wavves. Loosely. Maybe I just want to link to stuff. Don't watch this video if you have epilepsy.


me, watching footage

News 1/14

Karen O. is a blonde! It sounds like a bad idea but it looks gorgeous! I'm a fan.
Along with that exciting but shallow news, the YYY's have released the artwork for their new album.
I'm not crazy about it, buuuuut I'm glad they're releasing new music. Mosquito comes out April 16.
Read an interview at Pitchfork or a show review at Hollywood Reporter.

In completely unrelated other news, did you know that Al Roker of the Today Show pooped his pants at the WHITE HOUSE?! When I heard jokes about him and poop I just thought they were funny, but this actually happened. I guess he had gastric bypass surgery, and this is a common result which is actually kinda sad but this is the internet and nothing is sacred I guess. I'm just glad that Al is okay because seriously no one does the weather like Al. Also I guess he thinks the government is crap. Literally.
Here's a video about it.
