The week of January 24, 2015 was: never swimming in the ocean again; mourning King Tut’s broken beard; saying farewell to Motley Crue. Don’t go away mad, dudes. RIP Skymall! We never bought that ottoman/shoe organizer/pen holder we dreamt of.

From the Archives: Louis CK is an Accidental White Person

“Yeah, because race doesn’t mean what it used to in America anymore. It just doesn’t. Obama’s black, but he’s not black the way people used to define that. Is black your experience or the color of your skin? My experience is as a Mexican immigrant, more so than someone like George Lopez: He’s from California. But he’ll be treated as an immigrant. I am an outsider. My abuelita, my grandmother, didn’t speak English. My whole family on my dad’s side is in Mexico. I won’t ever be called that or treated that way, but it was my experience.”
