NME added up all the magazine and blog end-of-year Best Album lists (their own list, Rolling Stone, Spin, Paste, Uncut, The Quietus, Drowned In Sound, Stereogum, Q, Mojo, Popmatters and The AV Club) and found out that Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires of the City is the most critically-acclaimed album of 2013.

so after the mtv ema’s, i snuck into a 21+ afterparty hosted by snoop dogg in an amsterdam nightclub, right? well. i made it to the front of the crowd. i was this close to snoop dogg. he passed me a joint. it was amazing.
then i decided it wasn’t enough. you see, snoop was on this platform seperated from the rest of the club. on this platform was a lot of leather couches and hot people with drinks. so i went to the side of the club and pretended my friend was on the platform. the giant 7 feet tall guard miraculously let me through and i was in the vip section with snoop dogg
i was literally the only one there who wasn’t on the guest list. i had some boy pour me drinks (which turned out to be PURE VODKA) and it took me an hour of socializing with strippers and models to figure out that everyone’s alcohol WAS ON TABS and that since i wasnt on the vip list I DIDN’T HAVE A TAB
i left and then i realized i stole snoop dogg’s alcohol
this has been my story
This week, we let Amy and Tina take over EW — and they clearly took the job very seriously, as you can see from their opening letter to readers:
"If you are reading this ‘Letter From the Guest Editors,’ it probably means you have read all the other parts of the magazine at least five times and are in some kind of isolated and desperate situation. If it’s a bathroom emergency, try elevating your feet on an upturned wastebasket. If you are in the trunk of a drug lord’s car, try doing that thing Walter White does where he throws chemicals at the ground and they explode."
I nominate Tatiana Maslany for Best Ensemble Cast in a TV Drama.
