“I wish there were more neocon blondes involved … Otherwise I’m not registered to vote—because if Andy Warhol didn’t, why do I have to?” Cat Marnell cozied up to The Observer Wednesday night at Paper magazine’s eighth annual nightlife awards, offering us her views on the 2012 presidential race.

Of course, if you are a photographer to the stars, this might lead to more sticky situations.

Mr. W.K.’s song “Party Hard” was memeified at 4chan and other goony websites into a series of animated .gifs like the one above.
On New Year’s Eve, Mr. W.K. tweeted: “I love @4chan. PARTY PARTY PARTY! It’s New Year’s Eve!” with a link to Read More
