on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.

1.  This Chelsea Lately sketch, which features Chelsea Handler and Conan O'Brien getting into a nude cat-fight in the shower, has got to be one of the weirdest things we've seen on the late night circuit in a while. Props to Chuy, who comes in at the end and is hilarious. [via Just Jared]


cdn-media.nationaljournal.jpeg2.  In today's biggest "what the what?" news, the National Republican Congressional Committee is completely redesigning their site to be like BuzzFeed. According to the National Journal "the new NRCC.org does away with all the typical features of a political website, emulating instead the style of the Web juggernaut whose top headlines currently include '10 Easter Bunnies Straight From Hell' and '14 Photos Of George W.

He argues that "the other artists could easily be overshadowed by his presence. It is my belief that one must take great care that the playing field is level." [via The Art Newspaper]
