+ If you thought there couldn't be anything more awkward than going on a Tinder date, try being the lucky bartender (AKA the proverbial fly on the wall) who gets to watch them succeed (or fail) live.
+ Now that you've gotten your sneak peek at Girls season four, all that's left to know is when it's coming back on. So, trust us when we say you should hold off all your plans for January 11, unless they include having your own Girls party. (via the NYLON inbox)
+ Watch Bleachers’ super-cute performance of “Rollercoaster” on Conan that featured mini-doppelgängers of each band member.

Deal of the Day:
Score 40-percent off of your purchase at Gap until November 11 using the code FFSALE and pick up some Sofia Coppola-approved “normal” threads. 

Advice of the Day:
“When I do things that would get someone old to shake their head, my fans go ape shit. Like when we bend over or take our shirts off, we’re giving them that freedom. And that’s what rock ’n’ roll always was. Like, people snuck out to go see Joan Jett, and their mothers would be pissed. And I’m honored to be that girl that gets people out of their comfort zone.” – Miley Cyrus
