Dave Brockie, the voice and brains behind legendary thrash act GWAR, was reportedly found dead in his home in Richmond, Va., yesterday. Brockie was 50 years old.
From the ground on Earth, stars seem to be pretty evenly spread throughout space. There are clusters, sure, but stars show up here and there everywhere. That’s only because we are looking at a very small portion of the space around us, as this new video from NASA’s Spitzer telescope shows.
Wes Anderson’s films are, arguably, the most easily identified films of any working director. The somewhat timeless but vaguely 1970s-y dress and colour scheme, the omnipresent sans serif font, the deadpan line delivery, the killer 1960s-1980s soundtracks: all classic Anderson. Love it or hate it, chances are you do feel strongly about his work, in large part because of the very eccentricities that make it so distinctive.
An interesting new “PSA” making its way around the internet touts the importance of staying in school and uses some fucked-up images to make its point.
It’s fucking cold outside. Snow is piling up everywhere. Your job is the pits and you’re going nowhere. It’s almost time to file your taxes.
Jesse Myerson is a young left-wing journalist who recently wrote an article for Rolling Stone that advocates some solutions to America’s ongoing economic malaise.

In the latest instalment of his hilarious and uncomfortable web series “Between Two Ferns,” Zach Galifianakis took Canada’s national treasure/embarrassment Justin Bieber to task for being an idiot.

It’s been a rough several weeks for straight women who have any goddamn eyes in their faces. First Seth Meyers got engaged, and now Zayn Malik of One Direction is off the market for realsies.
Slam poetry aside (which I say only because I do not like slam poetry), this video is pretty great. Dylan Garity explains his evolution from a nerdy, clammy-handed adolescent into an aware, rape-disliking grown man unafraid to acknowledge his own problematic former attitudes.
It’s a fact that we all seem to agree on, even if most of us don’t do anything about it: the industrialized food production process is terrible.
Video of an off-duty Israeli soldier (Electronic Intifada identifies him as “Michael Gershkowitz of the Israeli army’s Kfir brigade”) stopping his car to harass several Palestinian workers and severely beat one.
This is One Direction’s latest effort. The video tries to pretend at having a story to it, but quickly devolves into meaningless chaos as the boys run amok in a record label office tossing over desks and doing the choreographed dance moves they promised they would never do.
