Mashup maestro DJ Earworm has released his annual megamix of the year's biggest songs. This time, it's called "Do What You Wanna Do." The impressive production blends the likes of Meghan Trainor, Jason DeRulo, Katy Perry, One Direction, Charli XCX, Iggy Azalea, and more.
But do break out the Swiftamine...because there's a lot of Taylor featured here:
Andrew Hinderacker’s latest venture, Dirty,takes a growing American family, inserts them into the porn industry and spits them back out. All under roughly two hours. Dirty is in many ways a delicate balance between the moral and the immoral and the ever-changing argument that there may be no such thing as the gray area when it comes to the more questionable paths in life -- like deciding to start a clean, guilt-free porn site for all the closet-freaks of the world.
This is how we meet Matt (Max Lessler), a down-on-his-luck businessman a la Jerry McGuire, who's grown tired of taking orders from shady suits left and right, including Lea Coco’s Terry character, a downright, money-hungry executive type straight out of the Mad Men era. He’s successful, ruthless, but smart. The kind of man Matt wants to be like when he’s not paying too much attention to Terry’s flaws. Providing the sometimes-needed comedic relief is Anna Konkle, in the role of Matt’s pregnant and at times demanding wife Katie. She wants nothing to do with her husband’s less-than-honest business aspirations. That is, until her needs are meant. 90% of proceeds go to victims of sex trafficking. And with this good-hearted but silly idea, they embark on an ill fated, yet money filled ship.
The message in Dirty lies in the take-back nature of the characters. They set out to put out fire with fire. A porn site that only features actresses over the age of 25. No shameful situations and no humiliating or degrading stereotypes. Something you could be proud of. But when push comes to shove and big bucks are involved (shove faster) our heroes begin to take back their promises to themselves and each other, and their original idea and mission begins to fade in the eye of financial security. Dirty takes the American Dream and smears it up a bit just enough to get you thinking.What is it all for? Is it worth it? Et. Cetera.
Leading man Max Lessler enters the stage talking and doesn’t stop doing so till the very end, and it’s a good thing. His dialogue so detailed and brought to life by what must’ve been a grueling process of stage blocking in the weeks prior to opening night. Lessler brings Matt’s family troubles and deep worries to life with his lovable demeanor and sporadic neurosis.
In complete contrast, there is Lea Coco’s sexy, asshole character. Played with so much authenticity that you can’t help but want him and hate him all at the same time. And not to be forgotten, entering the very exciting and fun second act, Zuleyka Silver serves us a memorable performance as Mikayla, a breath of fresh air that leaves Matt, Katie and Terry grasping for more.
Dirty is now playing at the Zephyr Theatre in West Hollywood now through December 21.
One of the many performances taking place at the Main Stage belongs to solo artist (and US Weekly fashion contributor) Ricky Rebel whose 2013 single, “Geisha Dance”, spent 10 weeks on the Mediabase chart that powers On Air with Ryan Seacrest. Now, he’s releasing “The Blue Album”, mixed by Claudio Cueni (JLo), after recently playing with Grammy-winner Mya. He can be spotted on stage alongside Kelly Mantle (RuPaul's Drag Race) in two appearances throughout the night.
Also appearing at the Carnaval? Countless scantily-clad boys and girls who will be looking for tricks that will treat them well into the wee hours of Saturday morning.
There are Halloween parties...and then there's Halloween Havoc, one of L.A.'s annual soirees that's been known to inspire elaborate costumes, killer tunes, and countless morning-after status updates.
Hosted at a different private home every year, the invite-only ocassion features a guest list that's as mysterious as the punch that is rumored to be served out of a giant smoking cauldron which usually dries up around midnight...and features some "festive" side effects.
The 2014 online campaign seems to be taking the testimonial approach, using alleged quotes from past partygoers. And it looks like this year promises much of the same:
And then there's this one:
And this one, which makes a pretty damn big claim (sorry, West Hollywood):
Good luck finding out where this year's debaucherous festivities will be taking place...
And if you are lucky, maybe we'll see you there this weekend!

But if you're still not sold on the idea of a very meta web series about actor Ryan Hansen (who played Dick Casablancas on Veronica Mars) trying to produce his own detective show, then episode 2 of the spinoff just might help you reconsider watching.
Those who have been on Team Logan since the first season of Veronica Mars will enjoy the ample amount of screentime dedicated to actor Jason Dohring and his unbelievably beefed-up bod (not to mention his charming comedy chops). Like here:
