Among the many news stories that broke over the weekend, one that caught my eye for all the right reasons was Jewish singer, songwriter, and mom-of-two extraordinaire Pink forgetting the lyrics to…her 2006 hit song, “Who Knew.” She was performing her first of two sold-out Beautiful Trauma shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden last Wednesday evening.

"Curb Your Passover" impressively captures the series' characters (no small feat considering the general lack of costumes), jokes, and kvetchy vibe. There's even a kugel that's — you guessed it — prettay, prettay, prettay good. The Larry David wig is too much for us to handle — in the best way possible. Check it… >> Read More

It's a total revamp of the GOT theme song, complete with a…Jon Snow lookalike and a Hodor who says "maror, maror." Whether you're a Stark or Bolton, a Targaryen or a Lannister, everyone should watch and listen to the clip below.
