So excited for the premiere of Broad City.

In honor of the man who changed a nation, a look back at our cover from the week he was freed.
Amazon Announces Plans for Half-Hour Delivery Using Drones. I am very much hoping Jeff Bezos is just screwing with us. Hilarious image above by @quantumpirate.
PS — This was reported by “60 Minutes,” which, one would think, would be a little careful about outrageous claims these days.
You know those bus ads/billboards/tv spots that are all “Oprah is awesome, be more like Oprah”? I have been annoyed by them for years in New York, but as I get older (I’ve learned) annoyance turns to really intense hatred. The Foundation for a Better Life—the organization that funds these expensive ad campaigns—uses public air time and a private endowment from an Evangelical Presbyterian guy to make the world’s most inane non-for-profit ads. Observe.
"Be the douchey husband on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’"
"Be a puppet!"
Some of them are even weirder—like the one that makes Mr. Rogers seem like a pedophile or the one about being a cartoon family but you get the idea. (Note: If you don’t get the idea, the idea is why are we, as a culture, spending money on this crap when we could use it for feeding the poor or educating kids about sex or even telling Americans that WWE isn’t real.)
Theoretically these ads are supposed to promote character, but it’s super hard to make people awesome by showing them rich people (or fake people invented by rich people) who often have no real character. Suggestion: Take down the annoying ads, build Healthcare.gov.
Best picture ever. Bonus: You can buy the Baby Youda Infant Bodysuit.
So, when I got this email I didn’t read the body text—I just ordered the 4th expansion pack and moved on. Only now do I realize the creators of Cards Against Humanity knew we would all do that and therefore took a speech by Bill Pullman (verbatim) from “Independence Day” and used that for the copy.
It is based on my deep analysis of New York Times headlines.
I want to hate Will Arnett because of the Amy Poehler break-up but this is cute.
Completely obsessed with this Stephen King book jacket photo from the 70s. The eyebrows, the shirt, the incredible pants-tightness. (via @colsonwhitehead)
Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and 47 other musicians died at age 27. A new book recalls their final hours.
