Thursday, July 31, 2014 Right Now: Five Music Videos We Are Obsessed With This Week
Even though MTV has been hijacked by teen moms and teen wolves, the art of the music video is not dead. Our favorite artists are still making them left and right; they’re just getting more creative with their execution (like Lana Del Rey, pictured above, whose strikingly simple “bride without a groom” video gives us the chills). From Slutever‘s summer fun to Mac DeMarco‘s sexy Homer Simpson situation, here are five music videos we are currently obsessing over.
Thursday, July 31, 2014 Guest Edit: A Few Things Steak Learned So You Don’t Have To
I just had a birthday and while I’m not exactly sure when your mid 20s ends (and my insecurities keep me from Googling it ), I feel like my time might be running short. They tell you that your teenage years are unlike anything else, and yeah, I guess they’re right. I’ll never be a snot-nosed, pubescent, tangled mess navigating high school again but really that sentence puts waaayyyy too much weight on your teens when it’s in your 20s that your life actually begins to take shape. Here are a few things that I learned in my twenties so you don’t have to.

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Avery Monsen Gets Emojinal
Emojis are the lifeblood of worldwide communication. When you really think about it, nothing is more important than expressing your ideas through tiny illustrations of really pointless things. Nobody understands that better than Avery Monsen, a comedian / Vine celeb / really funny author out of New York. Avery’s newest creation, Rejected Emojis, puts all those preloaded icons to shame by serving up such creations as “cool pube” and “a bald man reclines on a giant slice of pizza.” We caught up with Avery the other day and tackled important subjects like smiling red ogres, emoji freedom, and the power of evasive texting.
Tuesday, July 29, 2014 Guest Edit: Summer Survival by Autumn Enthusiast Cailin Hill
Me trying to enjoy summer, but I’m so hot and miserable I’m near tears.
