Local Stops: The Aliens Are Here, Old Spice (Girls), And Outed Porn Stars

HOLY SHIT ALIENS (maybe)

What happens when you come out as a porn star? Vox takes a look.

The Secret Service once threatened to kill Mr. Met. We’ve all been there, guys.

Your favorite Spice Girl just turned 40, and you’re old too now, and we’re all going to die one day.

Local Stops: Mini-Golf, Insomnia Cookies, And Coachella Bros

The Masters would be so much more fun if they were held on a mini-golf course.

Insomnia Cookies is coming to the East Village.

The Bros of Coachella.

If you tweet terrorist threats to American Airlines, you will be investigated. Even if you are joking.

Airbnb: once a wholesome platform to open your home to strangers, now used for dens of human sin.

Fireworks on the East River!

There’s a new Black Keys song out today, and we don’t hate it!

Local Stops: Texas, Milestones, Hedgehogs, and Royal Playdates

Texas is really big, y’all.

In honor of his 5000th NHL game, Getty Images photographer Bruce Bennett picked his 10 favorite photos and explained their back story.

Spoiler: Comic Book Icon Archie is going to die in the series finale.

Bartolo Colon pitched a good game. Bartolo Colon is quite large. So in the only logical combination, Bartolo Colon celebrates by jiggling his belly.

Maruto the Hedgehog is the pet you wish you had.

And we’ll never be royals (or get to go to playdates with them).

Drake is hosting the ESPYS.

Local Stops: Godzilla, Rob Ford, TMZ, Rwanda, And More

Every trailer for Godzilla has been a Local Stop so far, and so the trend must continue. (GODZILLA!)

In other Local Stops favorites, Rob Ford went to a hockey game this weekend, got drunk, and left to meet Batman.

Today is the twentieth anniversary of the start of the Rwandan genocide, and the New York Times has a spectacular photoessay on the survivors and the perpetrators.

Local Stops: Dream Control, Mangled Leg Jokes And More Tales Of Street Harassment

It’s International Anti-Street Harassment Week! Read these stories to remind yourself how far there still is to go (and watch our video on the subject too).

A genius Notre Dame student smashed through the walls of a spa presumably looking for a good deal on a pedicure; instead he came upon Hot Pockets.

Game of Thrones returns on Sunday, so here’s a supercut of every bloody, grimy, sooty death that’s ever gone down in Westeros.

Some app says you can control your dreams, but YOU DON’T NEED AN APP GUYS TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR DESTINY, YA FEEL???

Remember Liza Dye, the comedian who got run over by the subway after fainting and lived to tweet about it? This amazing interview reveals just how tough she’s been in handling, you know, excruciating amounts of pain and misery.

Local Stops: Pervy James Franco And Umbrellas (Ellas Ellas Eh Eh Eh Eh Eh Eh)

Preach, court stenographer guy. You speak for all of us.

That’s not very professorial, Jamesy. (Or is it?)

Dunkin’ Donuts closes because of rats. Whatever, as long as we get our chicken salad croissants.

Alex Trebek: Just like the rest of us, sometimes!

This is for the guy that yells “UMBRELLA UMBRELLA UMBRELLA!” on the corner of 3rd and 14th.
