Coachella – in all its fringed, headdress-ed “beauty;” Chris Hardwicke, Joss Whedon, Game of Thrones, Girls, general nerdiness. Spoilers ahoy!

…and 50 Shades of Grey. Yeah, even your nerdy hostesses with the mostesses are not immune to poorly-written-yet-addictive suburban BDSM. So sue us.

Don’t miss the LA Ink Stains Prom! Or the super awesome comic book.
