The Best, Worst and Weirdest of the Week

by Paper

16 Hours...Flight attendants can tell I'm off the shits. They's a whisperin in the corridors. No I don't want a magazine but I will have a hot lemon scented towel. Thank you kindly. Guy next to me is pajammy'd down head to toe we haven't even been on here for 4minutes. That boy clearly excited about the comfy lux sleep wear. I'm going to try and discover something about me on this flight. Thoughts brought to you by the shaky warrior 💊

Best Interview of the Week: Azealia Banks' for Playboy. The rapper spoke about, among other things, her former relationship with a 43-year-old man that began when she was 17, her hatred of "fat white Americans"  and how she believes "pussy is way more sacred than penis." -- Abby Schreiber

Best Sad-Bastard Superheroes
This new legion, from Brazilian artist Butcher Billy and featuring Morrissey, Siouxie Sioux, Ian Curtis and other post-punkers reimagined as superheroes. Now I can't listen to "Love Will Tear Us Apart" without yelling "BANG! POW! KA-BOOM!" --J.R.

Most Delayed Event: Lou Reed's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The godfather of punk doesn't need any institutionalized recognition, but hey, it's always nice. -- E.S.

Most Exciting/Confusing News:
Mitt Romney is going to box Evander Holyfield. What? I'm still wondering if this is satire. -- E.S.

Most Brilliant Prank Call: This guy's call on C-SPAN in which he recited lyrics from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song instead of talking about the segment's topic: Congress' involvement in negotiations with Iran. God Bless this Man! -- T.Y.

Best New Song by an Artist Born During the Whitewater Scandal:
"Put Your Finger in the Socket," by 19-year-old Matt Jaffe and his SF-based band the Distractions. Classic songcraft, weird and compelling vox, formidable on-camera charm... this is the Elvis Costello / Tyler Oakley lovechild we've been waiting for.. -- J.R.

Best Review of Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly Album: Taylor Swift's. The pop star loves her some Kendrick Lamar tunes so it's not surprising that she tweeted her review of his latest project, which dropped a week early. For the record: we feel the same way about the album, Taylor! -- T.Y.

Best Entrance:
Bill Murray's on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, complete with an all-girl mariachi band and a horse. Such gorgeous gams, too. --E.T.
