The “Best of 2012″ lists will include plenty of celebrity mayhem, mugshots, weird baby names, spiritual revelations, LiLo, divorces, fashion, and sad breakups. No doubt, all of these events have kept us talking throughout the year and will even be fun to recap, when reading the end-of-year-lists. But here’s a different list; one that lists 2012 pop culture moments that we never wish to or should talk about in 2013…and quite possibly, ever again. More

I love me some Ingrid Michaelson, and I love me some transformative make-up, so I’m loving Ingrid’s new video for her song ‘Blood Brothers‘ from her album Human Again in which she gets her make-up done as seven pop-culture icons right in a row. How many can you identify? More
Prom is a formal event for high school students that takes place near the end of senior year… but it’s so much more than that. Prom is also a very important event in a young woman’s life. You might say it’s the most important thing she ever does (besides get married, obviously).
Here’s a true testament to the massive significance of prom: I know everything about it and I didn’t even go*. Prom’s influence is so far-reaching, so pervasive, so unquantifiable that I know pretty much all there is to know about it, thanks to pop culture. Here, I’ve helpfully narrowed down the 10 most important things about prom in one helpful Illustrated Guide. More
Frances Bean Cobain is only 18, but she already has quite a few tattoos. Here are some attempts at explaining some of them. More
During this past weekend’s round of SAT tests, students who were already tearing their hair out were faced with a question that, surprisingly, invoked anxiety: Do we benefit from forms of entertainment that show so-called “reality,” or are such shows harmful? According to the New York Daily News, many high schoolers were sure they had flunked the essay portion. (Side note: Remember when you were terrified of blurting out even a scant detail about the SAT essay question, for fear of having your exam disregarded? Guess that’s not as big a threat these days.) Apparently they didn’t consider reality television a universal enough topic to be acceptable for this wide-ranging test of aptitude. More
Often you hear of schools that namedrop famous alumni in interviews or newsletters, in the hopes of attracting more applicants. However, Columbia College Chicago did two things differently: They made comparisons between their majors and popular TV shows and other pop culture happenings, and they did so over Twitter. More
On Monday we showed you that sometimes Hollywood gets it wrong in terms of judging guys by their covers, or at least by their job title. Not every lawyer is a scumbag, not every politician will sleep with a prostitute, … More

James Franco Crowned King Of All Media – Finally, some validation for what we’ve been saying over at Crushable for awhile now: James Franco is truly the most prolific (if slightly insane) artist alive today. Now, he just needs to start a war with the President of Pop Culture, Ashton Kutcher. (via FlavorWire)
Speaking of the True Blood premiere, the only reason that I got into that show in the first place was because a guy I was dating last September was obsessed with it. Which yeah, seemed a little weird at the time (he was also really into Glee, which should have been a good warning sign right there), but after he basically sat me down and cajoled me into watching what I considered “another stupid vampire thing,” I was hooked. I’ve had the same resistance to Lost, the band The Hold Steady, and sushi: all of them had to be force-fed to me (sometimes literally) by somebody I liked. More
