andrew WK's best party tips

if you aren't following Andrew WK on twitter, please start immediately. he's not only one of my favorite tweeters, but he's also one of my favorite people. it all started when he tweeted that he was doing tequila shots with taylor hanson, and i retweeted it with the comment "please god let this be true." his response? "IT IS TRUE!" along with this picture. i couldn't stop smiling for the rest of the day.

AWK is an endless fountain of positivity and merriment. just a joyful, awesome fellow. most of his tweets revolve around "party tips" geared towards helping us all live a more rockin' life, so i've gathered some of my favorites.


  • Get in a car. Pick up your friends. Play music you love. Open the windows and drive. Be glad you're alive.
  • Push yourself out of the comfort zone and into the awesome zone.
  • Treat Monday night like Friday night.
  • Mama always said life is like a box of party. You never know which party you're party to party.
  • Fuck laundry. Just party.
  • Turn your brain into a circle pit, and stage dive off of your soul.
  • Generously give out fresh juicey packets of Capri Sun to people you've never met.
  • "Junk food" is what non-partiers call awesome food.

the best tv moms of all time

1. lorelai gilmore (gilmore girls)

LG is the coolest tv mom that could ever be. in addition to raising the most well-behaved daughter on earth by herself, she was the head honcho at an adorable connecticut inn, listened to great music AND wore witty t-shirts. relatedly, she made pop culture references for days. observe:

2. clair huxtable (the cosby show)

the OG (no disrespect to june cleaver). a sassy, chic, and unflappable attorney with a heart of gold, she can really do it all. 'nuff said.

3. annie camden (7th heaven)

ok, so she was super annoying most of the time, though NOTHING compared to her meddling/prudish/obnoxious husband. but it was only because she cared too much. and obviously, she meant well and made sure that all of their 10 zillion kids had everything they needed. god loves you, annie camden.

4. kirsten cohen (the oc)

as the saying goes ... behind every great man, there's a great woman. and let's face it: sandy cohen is an f-ing phenomenal man. i mean, for a tv character. anyways, kirsten was always super cool and calm and collected. even when she befriended that sketchy chick and became an alcoholic and had to go to rehab, she managed to at least appear that she had her shit together. plus, even though she was fully aware that she raised a nerdy, comic-book loving indie nerd -- the polar opposite of the newport beach crowd -- she always embraced and supported seth's quirkiness.

5. reba hart (reba

probably the most tolerant/patient mom ever. she not only took in her dumbass daughter, her daughter's even dumber babydaddy, AND the baby, but she put up with her lying, cheating husband and his mistress. mad respect, reba.
