Crushable Weekends Need A Drink(ing Game)

Crushable Weekends Need A Drink(ing Game)

Hey, kids. I have some sad news for you: This is my last weekend as Crushable’s faithful Weekend Editor. It’s been a good run, but alas, it’s time to say goodbye. You’ll still be able to catch me over at BettyConfidential, though, so it’s not goodbye forever; it’s just a change of scene. That said, though, I’ll miss you all, and I’ll miss our weekend extravaganzas. So let’s make sure Crushable’s former weekends go out with a bang, shall we? This– obviously– calls for a drinking game!

11 Somewhat Questionable Halloween Costumes for Pets

11 Somewhat Questionable Halloween Costumes for Pets

Can anyone explain the concept of Halloween costumes for pets to me? Because I have tried– believe you me, I have tried– but I just. don’t. get them. Sure, humans may think they look cute, but somehow, I just can’t get beyond the fact that pet costumes are, in actuality, a cruel and unusual punishment that should only be reserved for the most drastic of occasions. This is why I have trouble dealing with these 11 pet costumes. Is it just me? Or does anyone else find them somewhat questionable, too? Please tell me I’m not alone here… More »

Video Gallery: Happy Birthday, Mr. Schuester!– Er, Matthew Morrison!

Video Gallery: Happy Birthday, Mr. Schuester!-- Er, Matthew Morrison!

Happy birthday, Mr. Schuester! Yep: Today is Glee star Matthew Morrison’s 33rd birthday. We’d sing “Happy Birthday” to him, but something tells me he might be better off not hearing that. So instead, we’ve assembled a Matthew-Through-the-Ages retrospective, so he can take a look back on his career and how far he’s come since those early days at NYU. Ready for some hard-core musical theatre? Here we go! More »

Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren’t: The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren't: The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren’t is a series that looks at modern urban legends, bringing you a new tale each week.

At the end of January 1959, a Russian cross-country ski team ventured into the Northern Ural Mountains. Their expedition was intended to be a week-long skiing adventure, with the goal to reach a mountain in the Urals called Oroten. But though they set out from Vizhai—the last inhabited settlement that fat north—on January 27, they never came back. Or at least, they didn’t come back on their own. Numerous attempts have been made to reconstruct the events that had led to what has now become known as the DYATLOV PASS INCIDENT, with varying degrees of success. The trouble, you see, wasn’t that the team disappeared. It was the state they were in when they were found. More »

A Date with the iPhone 4S’s Siri

A Date with the iPhone 4S's Siri

The biggest new feature of the brand-new iPhone 4S is, without a doubt, Siri. Siri, you see, is like your personal assistant, only better, because you can carry her around in your pocket. You can ask her to call people and she’ll do it; texting, ditto; if you need directions, she can do that; hell, just about anything you need, she can find a solution for you. In fact, you can carry out whole conversations with Siri.

This got me thinking. Whole conversations? What would Siri be like in a place where questions and answers really matter? Like, say… on a date?

So I did just that. I dressed Siri up and I took her out to her favorite restaurant, and we attempted to get to know each other a little better. How did it go? Well… More »

Who Should Join Anne Hathaway in the Cast of Les Miserables?

Who Should Join Anne Hathaway in the Cast of Les Miserables?

You may or may not be aware of this, but a movie version of the international musical theatre sensation Les Miserables is currently in the works. This isn’t the first time in recent memory someone has tried to put Victor Hugo’s novel on the screen, but it IS the first time that it’s been done in musical form. And it’s racking up a pretty good cast, too: Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe signed on as escaped con Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert respectively a while ago, and just this week, Anne Hathaway joined the team as Fantine, the ill-fated singer of “I Dreamed a Dream.” So that got us thinking: Who ELSE might shine in this star-studded cast? We have no idea if any of these actors can sing, but hey, that’s never stopped anyone in the past (Sweeney Todd, much?). Here are our picks for the cast of the new Les Mis: More »
