Surely little girls can't like pink THAT much... By Jenny Donoghue ...When I was a kid my favorite color was orange. Or stripey. ...and then the plethora of pink swallowed the child whole. This week the topic of strong female lead characters in cartoons came up mid-friendly chat. I was disappointed to realize I couldn't think of many. Not from my own childhood, nor from the meager offerings of present day.[1] While the non-bundance of kickass females didn't stop little girl Donoghue from aspiring to do all the cool things the male cartoons did, and while I bet most kids...

Match the extremist to the outrageous & offensive statement! By Jenny Donoghue Someone needs to let these folks know that human beings can hear them when they say stuff. You'd think they're TRYING to win over as few people as possible. How To Play: Who said what? Simply match the 2012 Republican candidate with the correct reprehensive statement. Every single statement is sickeningly real, dates included. Answers at the bottom, like those teen magazine quizzes we all used to love/reluctantly do to pass time and now hold nostalgic affection for. Except not upside down, because this is the internet now.... Continue reading

Your weekly round up of the web's quirky distractions. By Jenny Donoghue Slate magazine made a nifty and horrifying little calaculator which reveals how long it would take Mitt Romney to make what you earn in a year. My answer didn't even enter the double digits of HOURS. Just in case you were under the delusion that he ISN'T a reprehensible human. In less sickening news, take a listen to this wonder of musical ingenuity. "BON JOVIVER" = Bon Iver + Bon Jovi. A rare treat for fans of both.[1] I've listened in excess of 30 times already. Kills me... Continue reading

In a world where financial success often comes at the cost of creative integrity, comedian Louis C.K. is changing how we connect with entertainment. By Jenny Donoghue An American stand up and lesson in perseverance for young artists, C.K. perfected his craft for twenty-seven years, only recently gathering a large following for his hilariously poignant observations. C.K. has introduced artistry to the sitcom with his production company, Pig Newton, which makes its decisions valuing content over profit. For his 2010 sitcom, Louie, he chose a development deal from FX. Their offer was the lowest budget of the several he received... Continue reading

An exciting break from being able to stalk everyone on the internet. By Jenny Donoghue This week I'm going on a date with a stranger I met on a bus. We got on really well and I'm somewhat interested in and attracted to him (for me about as rare as a Pokemon Candy[1]). We exchanged only first names with our numbers, keeping it mysterious, reveling in the excitement of being deprived of information in a way generations before us have never felt. Try as I might, there's no way to look him up online. After months of texting, we’ve arranged... Continue reading

A buffet of discomfort this year. By Jenny Donoghue 1. When Kim Jong-Il died and people thought it was Li'l Kim. Unclear if these people have been confusing the North Korean with the Lady Rapper for the entirety of their respective careers, or if it was just in this instance. 2. The wild chanting of "USA! USA!" the moment we found out Osama Bin Laden had been killed. My liberal friends in a Lower East Side bar were suddenly possessed with that terrifying Spirit of America. So jarring I couldn't help but awkward-laugh. It was the first time in 5... Continue reading

Wait, those things LIFT butts? I don't need that. I thought they provided extra space for already lifted butts. Like a more exotic and sophisticated Pyjama Jeans.

Eat it with the eyes in your face. By Jenny Donoghue While nannying for a lovely family with a beautiful large kitchen, I'd be a fool not experiment with recipes I've always wanted to try. So I did! (I'm no fool!) Parmesan and Parsley Salmon with Breadcrumbs and Eggplant Mozzarella Melts Cooking is a skill I've always wanted to achieve ninja-like greatness at, and having a big kitchen makes all the difference.[1] Baked(!)

Jeremy, we should get together and recite all the lines to each other. There are days during the holiday season when I literally do nothing but watch it on repeat all day! And you could not have chosen a finer role model to want to be. I hope you enjoyed the Frederick celebration this week. He rocks.

A video thesis on why Frederick from The Sound of Music is the most awkward character in the history of movies. By Jenny Donoghue It's that time of year again. Starbucks are busting out the red cups, it's often necessary to wear some kind of hat, and The Sound of Music is settling into its nostalgic repeat cycle. There's our man. Aside from the unbridled joy of dramatically reciting every line in unison with the film, what strikes me most about The Sound of Music is that Frederick is the most awkward character ever captured on camera. Heder, step aside;... Continue reading

A frightening reminder that you never know who's in the room. By Jenny Donoghue A chilling HuffPo article this week revealed casting assistant Jason James Murphy's convicted child molester past. Well, no uncreepy person would be this shiny and neatly turtle-necked. He'd be played by Jon Heder in the movie whose pitch is undoubtedly being rejected as we speak. Murphy, in a move pretty advanced as molesters go (to my limited knowledge[1]) dressed as a woman to pick up the 8 year old boy from school in Seattle and flew with him to New York to do the molesting in...

Life is stressful. Stop succumbing to it and start smiling, friend. By Jenny Donoghue Don't be this guy. Only leads to shoulder ache. Do just one thing. If you're anything like me, you have a million things on your to do list and are paralysed by how many there are. In the time you spend worrying about how you're gonna do them all you coulda knocked one out already. Do any tasks that will take less than 2 minutes immediately as they arise. It's amazing the transformative difference this makes. It's so easy to put them off. Maybe you want... Continue reading

I'm nice to you because I don't want to permanently smush you. By Jenny Donoghue To preface: When I say "cruel", I'm referring to senseless meanness, as opposed to motivated awfulness released in a mean way. So, here's what happened: As a young child I was very loved. Maybe I was too loved, because I sometimes felt the unprovoked urge to be spiteful for no reason other than because I could. I suppose to change up the consant lovelieness or to see what happened when I was bad. I don't remember what motivated my first ever cruelty spree, but I... Continue reading

7 Reasons Why Our Relationship Is More Intense Than Any I Have With A Human... By Jenny Donoghue Like an abusive boyfriend, it's addictive. No matter how frequently it fucks me over or how hard it can be to live with, I love it so hard that I keep coming back. Even if New York punched me in the face and slept with my sister[1] I'd still pledge my undying loyalty. It's beautiful to look at. No human's eyes could possibly shine as pretty as the star-scape of skyscrapers at night. (Because no human could possibly have that many eyes!)[2]... Continue reading

And other superstitions. By Jenny Donoghue (Actor) In honor of Halloween weekend, here is the story of a time I was very scared and why I no longer fuck with the supernatural. September 11, 2001. 43 minutes before the first plane crashed, it was lunch hour in my British high school. It was probably raining or cold, not only because it was Britain, but also because my friends and I were eating lunch inside an empty classroom. British summer. For no good reason other than being 14, we were trying to do a Ouija Board. (Is the correct term to... Continue reading
