You know what to do with this gif from the wondrous Lana Del Rey Dancing blog.
Here’s our winner for last week:

And now for that damned moth!
Congratulations and imaginary swag to Frontier Former Editor. For his imaginary trophy that we hypothetically present, in virtually lavish ceremony, we have selected the moth-related and not-to-be-trifled-with Bear OPS Butterfly Knife Black Handle Black Blade.
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.
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!
I think this one actually scared off most of the commenters, but nonetheless what entries there were were solid, so we are pleased to announce our winner:

And now, Tales From the Crypt, sponsored by Chanel…
Congratulations and imaginary swag to igirl99, who I believe is a first-time winner. What else? A Sterling Silver Trowel!
And now, lest we forget, a small reminder of what used to be, back when she was admitting to being the same age as me.
