Got a Girl Crush On: Marlo Meekin’s Vine account

We’ve crushed on Marlo’s bodacious cartoons before, but this lady’s Vine (that’s the video counterpart to Instagram for the uninformed) is hi-freakin-larious! 

(find her on Vine, username: MarLo Meekins!)

Got A Girl Crush On: Ilana Glazer in Sugar Boy’s Kung Fu Mom

UCB alum, gamer, and 1/2 of the sketch comedy duo, Broad City — Budding comedy superstar, Ilana Glazer's been killing it as of late.

Today I stumbled on to this amazing Sugar Boy video and I just keep re-watching Ilana rollerskating, karate chopping and high-fiving her way through my beloved borough in attempts to retrieve her favorite baseball card. If you make it through the entire video without the slightest bit of a Girl Crush yourself, I’d keep it to yourself. Ilana has some mad nipple-ripping skills.

"Go kick a butt now right now, baby!"

Got a Girl Crush On: Kerri Kenney-Silver

amandalynferri:

How did I miss that Kerri Kenny-Silver was the lead singer of Cake Like???

Holy cow, how did this slip by?! I already loved this brilliantly quirky comedienne, but now have a newfound love for this woman! 

This video is a veritable gold-mine of 90s riot grrrl awesomeness peppered with fellow members of The State (who have all since graduated onto Reno 911, Party Down, Children’s Hospital, Stella, Wainy Days, aaaaaand pretty much anything funny and amazing). Doesn’t hurt that the song is pretty effing awesome, too.

Check out more from Cake Like here, here, and here!

Got A Girl Crush On: The Laugh Master of YouTube

Honestly, the woman had already won me over when she coached me out of my permanent bitchface. The discovery that she had a whole channel just made my life.

I dare you not to laugh.

Got A Girl Crush On: Melissa Leo’s Hilarious Fight for Blowie Equality

Catching up on this season of Louie, I could hardly contain myself when Melissa Leo first walked into the liquor store. I love Melissa Leo. I can’t really explain this love much more than just saying that this woman’s Je ne sais quoi is just so, undeniably, bad-ass. I just kept watching and waiting, knowing that Louis C.K. must also recognize this, while praying that he wrote a role worthy for her.

Thankfully, my prayers were answered (You’re the man, Louis). Her 15 minute performance was like a beautiful, flaming, meteor on a hilariously unexpected collision course. There’s just something so deeply satisfying about watching a respectable, oscar-winning, actress climb on top of Louis C.K.’s head yelling, “Lick it! Lick it! Lick it or I’ll break your finger!”

"What’s wrong with this country?!" Well it’s definitely not Melissa Leo.

Got a Girl Crush On: Julie Klausner’s podcast “How Was Your Week?”
Sassy, unabashed cat-lady, writer, comedienne, and podcast maven Julie Klausner has got the corner on the modern-day version of coffee talk. Her show “How Was Your Week?” covers everything from shitty television to celeb gossip to realin’-out interviews (like this past week’s with Rookiette Tavi Gevinson, and fellow comedy gal, Jessi Klein).
What’s not to love?

Got a Girl Crush On: Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer’s comedy podcast You Had To Be There
You Had To Be There is a free weekly comedy podcast hosted by comedians Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer, who invite a comedian (like Kristen Schaal and Broad City!), or a musician, and a small audience of friends to hang out in Sara’s apartment in Brooklyn. What I love about this is the grown-up ladies’ slumber party vibe of each episode of just dishing it out. 
And, in 2011, they spear-headed the “Justin Timberlake, Make Music Again” PSA.
