Was Roland Orzabal of Tears for Fears a thief of dance? (Warning, GIFS)
Up until about a day ago, Normcore was only a whisper in the dark. Sometime in October, a group of art people made some kind of mention of Normcore being the accessible appeal of the generic smiley face.

A few nights ago, a Brooklyn club hosted the Raw art party I wrote about here. Naturally, any art show is a magnet for the weird and fantastic. I met a lot of artists and saw and heard a lot of wonderful things, but I cannot possibly recount all of it, or this article would go on for-fucking-ever.

It is Hump Day, so most of us are tired, and what some would rather be doing right now is eating Cheetos and watching old episodes of Stargate SG-1.

The Snatch Game is a take on the 60s game show “Match Game,” where contestants have to match answers with celebrities to win, and do so with hilarious results. The Snatch Game is a rite of passage.
