Need a Good Cry? These Dog/Soldier Reunion Videos Will Do the Trick

Loldog-happy-dog-pictures-happy-happy-happy Yesterday was Veteran's Day in the US. Many people took the time to thank the people in their lives that had served and fought in the military. But it might be easy to forget that soldiers who travel to far-off places leave behind not only human loved ones, but beloved pets, as well.

Dear Hip-Hop: No Mo' No Homo, Plz

Kanye_pink As an unapologetic feminist, I have a love-hate relationship with hip-hop. While I love a great deal of both mainstream and underground hip-hop, I am often uncomfortable with the violent, misogynistic and homophobic themes in some (though not all) of the music I listen to.

I'd like to talk about Improv Everywhere.

John Mayer and the "Hang In There!" Motivational Poster Kitten with Sides of Courtney Love and Scott Baio

John_mayer John Mayer bugged me on Twitter this morning, and not for the usual reasons he bugs me, like that time he told me too much about his penis or the thousand times he has made lamesauce jokes. I should probably just stop reading his Twitter feed, but like with Courtney Love and her translator, Courtney Translated, I keep going back to witness him in 140 characters or less.

Top 5 Reasons Why Spike TV Can Kiss My Sweet Ass

Spiketv Spike TV, a division of MTV Networks that has made itself synonymous with blood, beer, and babes, has staked out some strong territory in the American television market. Its violent and misogynist programming can be found piping bone-crunching, blood-letting UFC gore into bars across the continent to the cheers of the alcohol-steeped masses. Few stations have been able to garner so much free advertising to such a cognitively submissive crowd, and so it comes as no surprise that Spike TV and its online arm have muscled their way into 98 million homes.

If you are at all familiar with Spike TV, it will also come as no surprise to you that this makes me more than a little stabby.

Here are the top 5 reasons why Spike TV can kiss my sweet ass:

I Think The Twilight Phenomenon May Be Approaching Maximum Ridiculosity

Twilight_edward_bella_lunchbox I know, this is sort of like the National Weather Service issuing a tornado warning when you're halfway to Oz. Nevertheless, the number of people and manufacturers crawling out of the woodwork to grab a piece of the Twilight-related merchandise pie has reached a critical mass. If you don't believe that it's worse than any other popular film, maybe you should take a look at some of this crap.

Loch Ness Monster Found on Google Earth

Loch_ness_2_lg Even modern-day cryptids cannot escape the all-seeing eye of those blasted satellites. They're like the new paparazzi, snapping images of a pissed-off Bigfoot who's all, I'M JUST GETTING A GODDAMN LATTE. LEAVE ME ALONE.

Dr. Horrible Is a Gift That Keeps On Giving: The Guild's Music Video

Watchtheguild Like anybody who only "discovers" things AFTER they catapult into the mainstream via a related national phenomenon, I discovered Felicia Day's hilarious web series The Guild only AFTER her appearance in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

If you haven't watched it yet, you should. Particularly if you're a gamer or love a gamer or even if you regularly enjoy taping "kick me" signs on the backs of gamers, like dude, gamers. Man.

Breaking! Funny Stuff on the Internet is Still Funny! Sometimes.

Dramatic_chipmunk_prairiedog There's a lot of funny on the web right now.  This isn't part of it.  Yet.

That's right, buckle up, reader!  I'm bringing funny back.  Those other bitches won't know how to act.  Unless they laugh, which is pretty much what I'm aiming for.

And by bringing funny back I mean I'm going to show you videos and such that other people made and that I find funny.  That's so much easier than being funny myself.

They bet me I couldn't write the word "funny" 10 times in one post. Ha, that's funny.
