April Favorites: #FyreFraud & Commuter Barbie

Now that all of the “It’s Gonna be May” and “May the 4th be with you” memes are over, it’s time to look back at April for some monthly favorites.

Let’s just say some very peculiar things happened in April 2017…

Shall we?

Favorite News Articles

1. #FyreFraud. Let the disaster that was Fyre Festival be a lesson to all the entrepreneurs of the world.

2. There’s a new Barbie in town, and she rides the NYC subway. I almost want to be 5 again so that I can play with this.

3. Apparently adults in Australia aren’t allowed to go to Legoland. Speaking of wanting to be 5 again…

4. You can now avoid annoying coworkers with a Google Chrome plugin. Beyond awkward moment when you get a phone call while your coworker is telling you the same sob story for the 50th time.

Favorite Music

1. “Saw You in a Dream” by Japanese House. I think she just went and plucked all of my heart strings to oblivion.

April Favorites: 7 Year Nap, Vintage NYC & Pizza Kiss Cam

april faves

April was brutal.

I can’t decide what part of April 2016 was worse: the fact that the whole “celebrities die in threes” turned into fours (Prince, Doris Roberts, Chyna, Victoria Wood), the fact that all the shows I’ve been watching are going on hiatus, or the sad reality that Mother Nature is denying NYC proper spring weather.

Anyway, I managed to get excited about a few albums coming out in May, many of which are being teased with singles that were released in April. That and a few YouTube videos kept me going.

Here are my favorites in pop culture for the month of April 2016:

Favorite News Articles

1. This kid Marcus Lepage took a 7 year long nap. And documented it on Twitter.

2. Alexey Zakharov created a vintage NYC. I think it’s so cool that he was able to do this using photographs!

3. Pizza kisses. Because who needs another human for the kiss cam when you have pizza?

4. Ted Cruz’s twin. I could not deal when I saw the comment that said “Ted Cruz in drag on Maury.”

Favorite Music

1. “Coast to Coast” by Satin Jackets. Hands down, this song is part of one of the best albums I’ve heard this year so far!

2. “Better” by Meghan Trainor. So excited to hear Thank You in May.

3. “Let Me Love You” by Ariana Grande feat. Lil Wayne. Girl, you def should not be trippin’ because they sure “will be coming “from the right and the left, left left.”

4. “Guillotine” by Jon Bellion feat. Travis Mendes. Only Jon Bellion can make something as gruesome as a song about getting decapitated sound cheerful.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Taylor Swift is tearing it up in this iTunes commercial. And falling off treadmills.

2. Elvy Yost caught Jay Hayden dancing on the set of ABC’s The Catch. He’s got the moves but not the lyrics.

3. Ariana Grande’s new album track preview. Cannot. Wait.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Limitless, “The Finale Part 2.” The only good thing that came out of all this is that Piper is safe.

2. The Catch, “The Princess and the I.P.” Let’s just hope Alice’s decision to save Ben doesn’t end up hurting her in the end.

3. Scandal, “Buckle Up.” That Mellie and Fitz moment made this one of my favorite episodes to date.

Favorite Youtube Videos

1. James Corden, Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Shaal make fools of themselves with mouthguards. I lost it with the bubbles bit.

2. Alonzo Lerone addresses Uma Kompton. This woman is literally a joke. “Sewerside”? Stahp.

3. Cats on leashes. Poor cat was being dragged down the sidewalk.

April Favorites: Detroit D, Square-Faced Dogs & Grace Helbig’s Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge

April Faves

Alrighty. April is over, May is here, and hopefully you’ve got those ridiculous Justin Timberlake “It’s Gonna Be May” meme laughs out of your system.

The beginning of April seemed kind of dull for pop culture news but things got interesting towards the end.

Here are my April favorites!

Favorite News Articles

1. Ariana Grande’s dad intervenes on Big Sean’s Instagram comment. Detroit Sean? Hmmmm… The D is not…lemme just leave that alone…

2. Square-faced dog haircuts. To all the dog owners in the world: how about no.

3. The Pinktax project. I’m glad this is being addressed.

4. A high schooler’s life in headlines. Hilarious.

Favorite Music

1. The Beach (Les Loups Remix) by PWNDTIAC feat. Krue. I just love this so much.

2. Say You Will by Trails and Ways. The amount of sexy in this song.

3. Can I by Alina Baraz and Galimatias. Only Alina Baraz can undress a person with her voice. New superpower officially unlocked.

4. All Time Low by Jon Bellion. He tried to fix his pride but “that sh*t’s broken.” Poor thing.

5. Let’s Get Slow by Aeroplane feat. Benjamin Diamond. You know summer is coming when you start hearing songs like this.

6. American Oxygen by Rihanna. Welcome to the new America.

3. Amy from Karmin’s new hairdo. LOVE IT. And her eyeballs are so gorgeous!

Favorite TV Episodes

2. Castle, “In Plane Sight.” It was so nice seeing Inbar Lavi (Revivia) from Underemployed in this episode!

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Grace takes on the Kylie Jenner lip challengeThis is how it’s done.
