1. RIP David Bowie.

Musician, actor, artist, filmmaker, and cultural icon David Bowie passed away this week at 69, prompting everyone on your Instagram feed to pay their respects to the Thing White Duke, Ziggy Stardust, and the rest of Bowie’s inimitable personas. Break out your craziest jumpsuit, your biggest platforms, and your most colorful eye makeup, because this weekend is the perfect time to make a sartorial tribute a la Kate Moss.

2. “Breadfacing” is a thing that people on the Internet are doing.

Guys, have you heard about breadfacing? No? It’s the latest totally bizarre trend to take the Internet by storm thanks to one pioneering Instagrammer who just loves rolling her mug around in a nice French loaf. If you decide to try this at home, we’ve got some questions: does it hurt? Are there benefits for your skin? A good exfoliant, perhaps? Are there other foods that are fun to plunge one’s face into? Is this really the kind of shit it takes to get noticed on the Internet these days?

3. Amy Schumer is dating the IRL Aiden Shaw.

Everyone’s favorite comedienne Amy Schumer has a sexy new BF with an art world-adjacent profession: furniture designer. The comparison to Sex and the City’s Aiden is inevitable, and I’m thinking it also means designers (and carpenters, woodworkers, and like, maybe even the few non-catcalling construction guys out there?) are going to find it a lot easier to get laid this weekend.

4. Courtney Love x Nasty Gal.

Grunge music and fashion legend Courtney Love—she of the bleached-out hair and babydoll dresses—is teaming up with online retailer Nasty Gal for a ‘90’s-inspired capsule collection that’s sure to look like Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent for a fraction of the price. On a related note: if you’ve never watched Michael Mouris’s animated short based on Love’s Birkin bag acquisition, well, you’ve got the next six and a half minutes of your life cut out for you.

5. Artist releases feminist dating app.

Any woman who has spent any amount of time on creeper-saturated dating apps like Tinder has experienced that moment in which the latest unsolicited dick pic becomes the straw that breaks the camel’s back. At a certain point, I’d rather just die alone, thanks. Luckily, Seattle-based artist Susie J. Lee has come to the rescue with Siren, the first feminist dating app.
