Pitch Perfect 2

Source: YouTube.com

If you'd asked me if I ever thought a movie about competitive a capella groups on a college campus would be a big deal, I would've probably laughed. And yet, "Pitch Perfect" became one of those movies pretty much everyone loves (or at least knows of), so it's no surprise that a sequel was made. This week, the trailer to the highly anticipated second film (simply called "Pitch Perfect 2") was released. It stars all of the fan favorites from last time, including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, and Elizabeth Banks, as the Barden Bellas compete in an international competition. Check it out!

The internet got weird this week, guys. Like, half the stuff that went on is not even appropriate for this blog (looking at you, Kim Kardashian and bizarre "Too Many Cooks" video from Adult Swim). So here's some of the other stuff that happened...

Blank Space Music Video

Yahoo made a mistake this week when they accidentally released Taylor Swift's music video for her new single, "Blank Space," a bit early. But Twitter (and the rest of the internet) didn't mind. The video showed T-Swift in a new light: playing up the rumors that she's someone who's "too crazy" to keep a boyfriend by slashing paintings, wrecking shirts, and throwing things. #BLANKSPACEMUSICVIDEO (yep, in all caps to denote excitement) immediately started trending. Although Yahoo pulled the video shortly after the accidental release, a few hours later, Taylor and her team officially debuted the video and people have been talking about it ever since, documenting her outfits, dissecting each important moment, and GIFing everything. I sincerely appreciate the Regina George/"Mean Girls" reference at 2:32.


The 10 Best Holiday and Winter Events

A Christmas Story

The pink bunny suit. "You'll shoot your eye out, kid!" That creepy-yet-iconic leg lamp. If you loved the 1983 movie, you'll definitely love the stage adaptation of A Christmas Story. The musical, which debuted in 2009 and even had a Broadway stint in 2012, returns each holiday season to tell the story of 9-year-old Ralphie who wants — no, needs — a BB Gun. Specifically, "an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock." A Christmas Story helps bring out the kid in each of us.

Swiftamine is Probably the Best Remedy to Taylor Swift Mania

So we've been posing about Taylor Swift. Like, a lot. And you've probably been hearing her song "Shake It Off" and all of its parodies, plus her new video was released yesterday, and her tickets go on sale on Friday, and, and, and... basically, if you're not a T-Swift fan, it could be a bit much. Especially when you realize that oh my god, you kind of like "Shake It Off." Or the "Blank Space" video isn't quite so bad.

Thankfully, there's (kind of) a cure for that...

You're welcome.

Jimmy Kimmel's Halloween Prank

Each year, Jimmy Kimmel asks his viewers to prank their kids by telling them they ate all of their Halloween candy. And each year, the videos totally deliver. The reactions from the kids range from complete and total meltdown to a sheepish grin and a, "That's okay!" Sure, it may be kind of evil for adults to trick their kids, but it's all in good fun.
