Lilias Adie died in the 1700s, when fear of witches ran rampant and the belief that those who had had their souls sucked by the devil (through their teat, I have been informed) would come back to exact vengeance after death was much more common. But her torment didn't end there.
It's that time of year, when the Halloween party/gathering in your tiny apartment is made even more claustrophobic and spooky with the exact right playlist to freak out your guests.

A new article in the New York Times highlights the fact that Denmark's fast food workers make $20/hour, and the country's economy has shockingly failed to collapse into a post-apocalyptic morass of universal poverty and entitlement. Imagine that.
Tell me if you've heard this one before: A "robust" German woman walks into a supermarket, asks for a breast pump and then proceeds to soak not one, but two cashiers with her own breast milk. No? There's more. She's still on the loose.
This dog is the beginning to understand the extreme happiness all kids with a quarter in a shitty motel realized fifteen years ago: BOUNCING ON BEDS IS THE FLYEST. Fuck a trampoline, bouncing on beds is the truest form of bounce. Bounce, bounce, motherfuckers. (Also: RIP childhood.)
Self-proclaimed "pretty motherfucker" A$AP Rocky and objectively gorgeous person Chanel Iman have called it quits. Love might not be dead, but it's certainly a lot less good looking.
The Pet Collective regularly remakes trailers for popular movies, but with kittens. Now they've gotten around to Gone Girl, and—surprise!—it is weird as hell. Seeing the whole flick condensed into a couple of minutes really drives home the unlikeliness of the plot, and the accents are terrible.
In today's Tweet Beat, Harry Styles loves Boyz II Men and thinks you should too, Bethenny Frankel employs a new stream of consciousness approach to tweeting and Jenny McCarthy tries this thing called "humor."

Before I left the house to go to the new Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire, which explores The Costume Institute's extensive collection of grieving garments from the 19th and early 20th Centuries, I thought about asking my father what I should wear. One of the earliest conversations I can remember having with him is our discussion about what he wants me to wear at his funeral. He demands that all attendees wear Hawaiian shirts—no suits—and I have several pre-approved.
Joan Jett! Tracee Ellis Ross! Carrie Brownstein! A dancing ovary puppet! Everyone you ever thought was cool got together and remixed "Bad Reputation" to help you vote in next week's midterm elections on Nov. 4th. Why? The War on Women rages on and Republicans are trying to stop The Ladies from voting because we "don't get it."

Picking up on a trend we thought had perhaps died, Heather Graham showed more than a tad bit of her stunning left leg at the premiere of Horns on Monday evening – though an uncomfortably close look at the outfit reveals that she did in fact wear nude underwear.
McDonalds is in a bit of a pickle. It seems that people aren't trying to get their Big Mac on quite like they used to. Profits are declining while Americans stuff themselves with Chipotle burritos. What is the largest hamburger fast food chain on Earth to do? They could focus on improving their product or perhaps score some positive PR by paying their employees a decent wage. Or, they could launch a brand new, completely inane and totally unnecessary tagline.
Johann Sebastian Bach is considered one of the greatest and most influential composers of all time whose work defined the Baroque period. Now, a new theory posits that some of the most iconic pieces from his repertoire were actually composed by his second wife, Anna Magdalena Bach.
