February Favorites: Bernie Sandwiches, #ObamaAndKids & Lucy Church

feb 2016 faves

February 2016 brought lots of great comedy, music and TV episodes. I have a feeling this winter is going to end quite well.

I’m looking forward to all the March Madness (minus the basketball because I’m not into sports). I feel quite calm for the first time since this year started, so maybe the March lion won’t swallow me and just go out like a lamb?

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

Favorite News Articles

1. I hope this reporter got a laugh out of this Bernie Sandwiches joke he created. Or else, Stephen Colbert is just “Reuben him the wrong way.”

2. #ObamaAndKids. Just the hashtag we needed to remind ourselves how much we’ll miss Obama when he’s gone.

3. Chrissy Teigen accidentally gave out her phone number in her new book. I thought people only put their address on dog collars…

4. Hayley Williams got married to Chad Gilbert! They’re wedding was so chill and cute ❤

Favorite Music

1. Toi Et Moi by Paradis. I swear, if they don’t come to NYC when this new album is released we’re going to have problems.

2. Too Late Now by Anik Khan. I’m not a fan of hip-hop or rap, so this is scaring me. Perhaps it’s the jazzy, samba vibe I’m getting from this?

3. Somebody Else by The 1975. They dug deep into the dark abyss for this song, and I love it.

4. Hide and Seek by Nude ft. JJ. This is probably the sexiest lounge house track I’ve ever heard.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran at the 2016 Grammys. These two pretty much won cute.

2. Emeraude Toubia in Regard Magazine. She’s freaking gorgeous and I love her in Shadowhunters.

3. Nathan Fillion and his kitty. OMJ kitty kisses.

4. Kickthepj in clown makeup. He looks like a nicer version of the Joker.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Limitless, “Undercover!” Please tell me this is not the last time we’ll see Lucy Church! I love her femme-fatale sexiness, and I love her with Brian!

2. Lucifer, “Manly Whatnots.” I am so happy Tom Ellis uses his Welsh accent for this show. Rush fans, you need to watch this show!

3. Pretty Little Liars, “Where Somebody Waits for Me.” That Haleb flashback was hard to watch, but it was necessary for us to see in order to move on.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. “Make Me Like You” music video. Gwen Stefani is back and falling over skates!

2. Rhett and Link try interesting popcorn toppings. I could not stop laughing when Rhett calls Link his baby and then Link says, “I’m not your baby, I’m your popcorn buddy.”

3. “Baby Boy” lyric video. Yuna + Lincoln Jesser is pure music making brilliance. Love the way this lyric video ends.

Happy March!

December Favorites: Cat in the Santa Hat, Letters to Satan & Good Mythical Moms

december faves

December 2015 was full of fun, holiday themed pop culture feature articles and videos. There were so many YouTube videos on my favorites list that I had to cut some of them out just to avoid making this post too long!

Here are my favorites in pop culture for the month of December.

Favorite News Articles

1. The cat in the Santa hat. Pure torture.

2. Children’s Christmas letters to Satan. The worst spelling error EVER. I can imagine how fun this must have been to write.

3. New Girl season 5 teaser confusion. Because Jess’ broken legs were honestly the only thing I could think about throughout the entire clip.

Favorite Music

1. “Focus” by P’ARIS. This song’s lyrics are just so captivating, especially the first verse. I’m excited to hear what else P’ARIS has in store for us in 2016.

2. “UGH!” by The 1975. Just from this song alone, I can tell I like it when you sleep, for you are so peaceful yet so unaware of it is going to be amazing.

3. “Learning for Your Love” by Chet Faker ft. Marcus Marr. That guitar melody after the chorus sends me into a frenzy every time.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Cara Delevingne and St. Vincent came back with a vengeance. One does not simply attempt to take photos up someone’s skirt and get away with it.

2. “The boys” (Caspar Lee, Oli White, and Joe Sugg). Joe’s face in this Instagram is everything.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Chrisley Knows Best, “Sports Day.” I’m such a schadenfreude for laughing at Chase’s fall during the obstacle course run. 

2. Limitless, “This is Your Brain on Drugs.” Great. Now everyone is going to start getting shot and killed at the agency because of NZT.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Good Mythical Moms. Is it crazy that I actually think this would be a successful spin off?

2. Rachel and Colleen Ballinger’s awkward Christmas dance. I couldn’t handle the awkward.

3. New romantic interest in Joe Sugg’s diary. Young Joe was a hot topic with all the ladies, it appears.

Happy January!

Fan Art Fridays: The 1975’s Matt Healy

Today The 1975 released the music video for their new single “UGH!” After watching it this morning, I just had to make Matt Healy the subject of this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

The music video was directed by Adam Powell, who also directed The 1975’s “Girls.” He plays with a lot of psychedelic lighting in the video, bringing the song’s ostentatiousness to a new level.

I just can’t get over how great Matt Healy’s curls look in the music video and in this fan art sketch of him I found on Tumblr by Melanie. Definitely loving the way that shaved portion of his hair grew back!

The 1975 are always fun to watch in music videos, and I hope I can see them live one day. It would be so awesome to hear some of the songs from their upcoming album I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it performed live!

See the original fan art here, and enjoy the music video below!

October Favorites: ZOLA, Lyft Zombies & Drake’s “Hotline Bling” Dancing

Oct Faves

There’s literally less than 8 weeks left of 2015. What. Even.

October brought a month filled with amazing videos and new music! This list of monthly faves would have been a lot longer if I had the time.

Here are my favorite things in pop culture for the month of October:

Favorite News Articles

1. The #ZOLA story. Is someone buying the film rights to this?

2. Lyft zombies. Can you imagine walking down the street and a zombie just randomly gets out of a car?!

3. Air France workers rip the shirts off their backs in protest. Dramatic much?

4. This adorbs little pug wanted to ride the Vespa. They just wouldn’t let him on, yo.

5. Mila Kunis would cover up a crime for her daughter. Mommy bond is strong.

6. Passengers on a delayed train sing Drake songs. Nothing brings NYC closer than a subway car.

Favorite Music

1. “New York City” by The Chainsmokers. New York City will be good to you if you steer clear of the players.

2. “All Over You” by LEISURE. I’ve probably played this song a gazillion times since it came out.

3. “Me & the Rhythm” by Selena Gomez. Instant favorite off her new album.

4. “Science Fiction” by Christine and the Queens. So happy she released her album in the U.S.!

5. “Dancing on Glass” by St. Lucia. This song has me so pumped for a new album from these guys.

6. “Fiesta (Remix)” by Bomba Esteréo ft. Will Smith. Wondering what the hell he’s doing on this track? Here’s your answer. 

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

5. Kimbra in NYC. How did I not know she was here?!

6. Hilary Duff’s canine PDA. Call the paparazzi.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Castle, “The Nose.” I’d hate to be that keen a smeller.

2. The Mindy Project, “Stay at Home MILF.” Those stay at home mommy outfits were super cute.

3. How to Get Away with Murder, “Meet Bonnie.” Why did no one take the briefcase full of money and go celebrate?

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Drake’s “Hotline Bling” dancing. How could they let him go out there without real choreography?

2. Extra gum commercial. Brb, bawling.

3. The 1975’s “Love Me” music video. My head hurts.

4. Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” dance video. These girls are phenomenal!

Happy November!
