PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.

Best Book Trailer of the Week:
BJ Novak's for his book of short stories, One More Thing. James Franco has put us all through a lot when it comes to dealing with an actor-turned-Serious Fiction Author but Novak's trailer is helping to heal the hurt. The trailer features a cameo from a Sartre-quoting Mindy Kaling and a very high-brow "that's what she said" callback -- it's hilarious. -- Gabby Bess

Most Accurate Reflection of Modern Dating:
Is it a date? Or hanging out? USA Today's  survey says what we were all thinking. Modern dating, errr hanging out...dating? hanging out? Modern getting laid and/or finding the one or just a friend is an ambiguous mess. -- Maggie Dolan


Best Movie Parody of the Week: This one that reimagines Her as Him featuring the voice of "Seth Rogen." Brilliant. And we would totally watch that. -- Abby Schreiber

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 5.24.30 PM.pngThing This Week That Made Us Most Nervous: Justin Bieber comparing himself to Michael Jackson post molestation trial victory on Instagram. And so it begins. See you on the step and repeat for an "energy water" launch in Scottsdale 3 years from now, buddy. -- Elizabeth Thompson


Best Canadian of the Week:
Mac Demarco took the decidedly more low-key approach to winning Best Canadian of the Week over runner-up Justin Bieber with his lounge-y new track, "Passing Out Pieces" from his upcoming album, Salad Days. -- G.B.

Most Fascinating (Probable) Murder Mystery:
This story about a Belgian man who passed away under suspicious circumstances earlier this week and was known for dining at over 100 fancy restaurants without ever paying the bill. -- A.S.


Best Weekend-Ready Mash Up:
Disclosure and Mary J. Blige's "F For You." Can't stop dancing. -- M.D.

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 5.26.44 PM.pngDumbest Piece of Shit Asshole of the Week:
George Zimmerman. He has a way sweet, way plagiarized, painting for sale on eBay, depicting the lawyer who prosecuted him. -- E.T.

chanel_ssc_lead.jpgCraziest Cool Moment at the Couture Shows:
Sneakers! At Chanel! Couture! With every single outfit! Karl's crazy...and we love it. -- M.D.


Best Fake Trailer of the Week:
This genius one spoofing standard issue Sundance movies. Spinning and twirling. Walking hand in hand with a child. Whisperings in a foreign tongue. It' all spot on. -- E.T.

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 5.42.38 PM.pngBest (Worst?) Magazine Cover of the Week:
The Times Magazine's cover with Hillary Clinton's face on the moon. It's giving us the heebie-jeebies. -- A.S.



Best Rob Ford Dancehall Remix:This Rob Ford dancehall remix! -- A.S.
