Kanye West feuds with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.56.58 PM

International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead. READ FULL STORY

Horse_ebooks and Pronunciation Book: We try to explain what just happened


It’s been 77 days, and something has definitely finally happened. What that something is exactly isn’t so clear. Popular Twitter account Horse_ebooks and YouTube channel Pronunciation Book released information today on a new art project/ alternate reality game (ARG) platform, Bear Stearns Bravo (BSB). It’s weird, cool, and more than a bit confusing, so we parse through the Interwebs to figure out just what this all is.

Is '40 Days of Dating' just a big-screen version of 'New Girl'?

When it was announced that the people behind viral website 40 Days of Dating — which featured his and hers daily blogs between two long-term friends as they tried dating each other for 40 days — had gotten a movie agent, the rollout seemed inevitable, and now it’s official: The story of Jessica Walsh and Tim Goodman will be a movie, written by Lorene Scafaria (Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist) and directed by The Vow‘s Michael Sucsy.

Ugh. I’ll be happy to be wrong, but right now, even reading that news seems exhausting — I just can’t imagine a not-insufferable two hours full of will-they-or-won’t-they between two twee adults caught up in the cuteness of their own story. Perhaps 15 years ago it would be intriguing, but the girl who just can’t help but fall in love and the guy with commitment issues are such well-worn tropes that I’m already checking my watch years before I get to the theater. And then I realized the real issue: I’m already watching this story unfold on a weekly basis, and it’s called New Girl.

Lily Collins is the most 'dangerous' celeb search

If you’re curious about Lily Collins and head to the Internet to find out, beware — McAfee has ranked the actress as the most dangerous celeb to search for online.

Collins — who starred in movies such as Mirror, Mirror and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones — posed the biggest risk of landing on a malicious site, according to the computer security company; last year, Emma Watson topped the list.

Female celebrities were the overwhelming lure to malware; Avril Lavigne, Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, and Zoe Saldana rounded out the top five; Mad Men star Jon Hamm was the only man in the top 10.

A person could be led to malware after doing a general search and clicking on dubious links, but risks increased when searchers added phrases like “free apps” or “nude photos.”

Who's really behind all those cat videos? 'Funny or Die' reveals all -- EXCLUSIVE


What do all your favorite feline clips — The Great Catzby, The Catrix, even Cannes Palm D’or winner Meowcolm X — have in common?

Well, though each one looks like a low-fi short that simply captures kitties being kitties, these ace time-wasters actually share one visionary director: Shula Von Hollow, the Orson Welles of cat videos.

You’ll find Shula’s story — her slow rise to the top, her first meeting with muse/cat Javier, how she lost everything when a certain keyboard-playing furball emerged — in this special Funny or Die video, released to coincide with the second annual Internet Cat Video Festival. (We know what you’re thinking: “Isn’t every day Internet Cat Festival day?” Incredibly enough, the answer is technically “no.”)


'Breaking Bad' catchup: The entire series in 8 minutes -- VIDEO

Can’t quite remember the intricacies of Breaking Bad‘s first few seasons — or haven’t seen a single episode in the first place? (If so: What is wrong with you?! The second half of season 5 premieres on AMC in five days; that gives you plenty of time to watch the whole series, provided you don’t plan to go to work or sleep.)

Ahem. Anyway! If you’d like to brush up on your BrBa before Sunday’s midseason premiere, you can’t do much better than this video by the Fine Bros. — a whirlwind summary of the entire series’ plot thus far, complete with yellow hazmat suits, magnet gifs, flippant asides about dull subplots (“Who cares about Ted? GET BACK TO THE DRUG WARS!”), and an ever-increasing body count (RIP Emilio, and Krazy 8, and No-Doze, and Tuco, and Tortuga, and Combo…).

Bonus: Watch all the way through for a tighty-whitey cameo!

This 'Breaking Bad' musical starring kids is the best


Yeah! Science!

With just six days left to go before the final season premiere of Breaking Bad, the Internet is just a little bit excited about the final showdown between Hank and Walt. If you’ve already completed your re-watch, the Internet has gifted you, via The Daily Dot, Breaking Bad: The Middle School Musical which tells the story of how a mild-mannered chemistry teacher with cancer becomes a scary drug dealer — only this time with songs. Fun for the whole family!

It’s all the references you love (“I am the one who knocks” “Los Pollos Hermanos” “[Ding!]“) sung by children who are hopefully far too young to understand the context. A special shout-out is necessary for a suddenly-missing-half-his-face Gus and bell-ringing Tio briefly rolling across the stage. It’s all about the details.

Coming out on Twitter? That's so Raven

Think Raven Baxter saw this one coming?

According to an article written in the National Enquirer last spring, “lesbian rumors have hounded” ex-Disney Channel star Raven-Symone “for years.” Those rumors apparently reached a fever pitch in 2012, when the Enquirer reported that Raven was living in a “love-nest” with openly gay America’s Next Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston.

Rather than shoot down the speculation, Symone responded by simply tweeting the following: “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life.” In other words: “I’m perfectly comfortable in the glass closet.”

Or at least she was until today, when Raven tweeted this message:
