We’re big fans of mashups around these parts (what do you mean, “what do you mean?” Aw, you love ‘em, you know you do). Well, you’re going to love this one: Adele’s Rolling in the Deep mashed up with Britney Spears’ Till the World Ends. It’s Friday. It’s time to get your post-apocalyptic freak on, and you could do a lot worse than to start by dancing around the apartment to this. It’s particularly good if you’ve just had a breakup: Dude, you pissed me off so much, I’m going all Mad Max on your shizz AND taking the planet with me.
Oh, and you are NEVER getting your Nirvana CDs back.
Over at the DailyDot I’ve gotten the job of supplying the Morning GIF every weekday, and many and varied are the delights of the GIFosphere. Not infrequently I find one that is intrinsically delightful, yet unsuited for the Dot through no fault of its own, and in that category is this truly faultless set of animated (extremely animated!) DanRads.
Ladies, please form an orderly line to the right.
We’re back! Just in time to announce our winner of last week’s Caption Contest. Congratulations to all our entries, who kept it clean, kept it funny, and kept it WAY more polite than I would have.

Responding to IMF demands, the Romanian government’s belt-tightening measures sadly went too far.
Congratulations and imaginary swag to Skahammer! For our winner of indeterminate gender and undetermined circumference, we hypothetically present the entirely virtual swag of the actually real but in this case imago-swaginary New Yorker belt with solid silver fittings, from Vogt Silvesmiths. Talk about a money belt!
Don’t say I never did nuthin’ for ya…that is, if ya are an Anglophilic Sherlock Holmes fan who just can’t get enough of your literate and literary pin-up boy. Here he is, keepin’ it real in the Inner City.
Moriarty, by the way, is also real, or so we hear.
Well, it was a great Grammys, wasn’t it? Whether you were into Epic FAIL or Epic Win, it was one of the most entertaining live broadcasts of the past year at the very least.
To start with: LLCoolJ. Just yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!
Also: Mini Minajes = adorbz. Sophia Grace and Rosie are the two little girls who rose to fame (and Ellen appearance) by being adorable and performing a Nicki Minaj song for their proud parents, who posted it on YouTube, where it went viral. Believe me, WAY more entertaining than “Roman,” and I ain’t even Catholic!
Anne Vyalitsyna is apparently a Victoria’s Secret model. Let me tell you, Victoria couldn’t have any secrets in that dress. She looks like she rushed out of the ladies’ room with half her skirt tucked into her tampon.
Fergie’s own husband tweeted, “I see London, I see France…” On the other hand, yay for bringing Granny Pants back. No doubt a contract from Playtex is en route.
Surprise success of the night: the formerly-revolting Kelly Osbourne. How classic! The hair even coordinates with the tats!
And now: ADELE.
First of all, although I can’t find any still photos of it, I loved her second dress of the night, the one in the video. The Armani in which she started the evening was pretty enough, but frankly looked like a plain old vintage piece in that sparkly polyester everybody’s Nana used to wear to parties where she wanted to feel sexy at sixty. This is one of the downfalls of black; the details become invisible. The second, cocktail-length dress, was pretty, old-fashioned, with just the right amount of detailing highlighted by cream underlay, and the fact that the big silver metal zipper in the back (which was inexpertly sewn) was visible every time she turned around was, frankly, completely endearing.
Also, I MUST have this lipstick, if not the entire look. Internet, can you help me?
Of course you can. Presenting: Adele at the Grammys: the makeup tutorial!
Behold the “glories” of Romanian model and poor liar Ioana Spangenberg, who claims she eats three big meals a day. I remember when Marie Osmond was boasting of a “natural” twenty inch waist” too; those were the days she was eating one apple a day and throwing it up, and she’s not five six. Nor, frankly, are many models who don’t work on fetish sites. Do your best/worst to the Human Skeleton in the comments, and points will be lost for obviousness for anyone who posts “eat a sammich.”
