Newlywed couple dances to "Baby Got Back" to kick off their wedding reception.
A bride and groom decide they "like big butts" and they "cannot lie" when their first dance song morphs from The Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" into Sir Mixalot's "Baby Got Back." More newlywed couples are ditching the slow ballads in favor of upbeat dance songs that let them "get jiggy with it."
He spoke with terrific emotion about ex-lovers, probably to make me jealous, but I didnt’t really like him enough to mind. There was Michelle Rosenthal, Mimi Moskowski, Avivah Katz. The list continued on with clunky Jewish last name after clunky Jewish last name, lots of bergs and ovitskys, very few vowels. I could just picture him masturbating to a map of Israel every night.
One man's love affair with matrimony, despite his anti-marriage views.

Rajul feels the summer lovin' heat at a NYC dance club.
My cousin Priya, our friend Nina, one of my roommates, Arielle, and I went out for some tapas last night and then to a club near NYU. It was a balmy, beautiful night so I ditched my usual grandma, ‘gotta be in bed by midnight’ mode and got all diva-fied to hit the town. After pre-gaming at the crib, and then some white sangria at the restaurant, we were swaying. Luckily, the spot we picked to go dancing was on point – great music (“Oh shit, I haven’t heard this song since freshman year of college!”), a mixed crowd, and enough room to dance without being “accidentally” groped. Although I do play the predator in that game sometimes. What? A woman can’t cop an ab-feel?
