11 times 'BoJack Horseman' gut-punched us right in the feels

Twitter Facebook

You might not have thought a cartoon about a talking horse could warrant an entire list of heart-rendingly emotional moments, but here we are.

The thing is — for all its scenes of hilarity — BoJack Horseman is also an incredibly poignant show. It makes you laugh, and then it catches you off guard. It's got way more in common with comedy-dramas like Master of None than it does with shows like Family Guy.

Anyway, what good is misery if we can't at least revel in it? In the list below we've broken down 11 of the show's most memorably emotional moments — from the crushing isolation of LA to the family trauma that gets passed down through the generations. Read more...

NFL players slam Donald Trump for rant against protests

Twitter Facebook

Football players are lashing out at Donald Trump after the president went on an extended rant about athlete activism at a rally Friday night.

Trump called on NFL owners to fire players who kneel or otherwise protest during the national anthem and encouraged fans to boycott the league.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b**** off the field right now. Out. He's fired! He's fired!" Trump said.

Lady Gaga may be a superstar, but her new documentary makes her struggles extremely relatable

Twitter Facebook

If you watched just the first few minutes of Lady Gaga's new Netflix documentary "Gaga: Five Foot Two," you'd be forgiven for thinking she's only a pampered pop star who has her every need met with a snap of her fingers.  

In the opening scene, Gaga strolls through her luxurious Malibu estate in a revealing body suit and sweats. She feeds pieces of chicken to her adorable dogs. She eats food someone else appears to have prepared for her. When she climbs a staircase lined with star-shaped balloons, she explains they're to celebrate starring in a new Bradley Cooper movie. She puts her plate down so she can get a massage.   Read more...

Protecting Rainbow Land and bringing color to the universe is a full-time job in itself, but those of us without a Color Belt to lend us magical powers have to go to work every dayThis Rainbow Brite-inspired keyboard is your secret weapon to defeating the King of Shadows — or at least the King of Boredom.

The rainbow LED effects on this mechanical keyboard have adjustable brightness, and can be set to "breathe" mode, which sounds creepy but is actually really cool. They slowly dim and brighten, adding dramatic lighting for the final stretch of that report you're writing. You can also just turn the lights off if you're really boring and hate fun. Read more...
