Today is…

Fly A Kite Day. A little too much work for a Monday, don't we think?

News of the Day: 

+ Want St. Vincent to make you a mixed tape? Who are we kidding—of course you do. Go to her Facebook to submit an entry on why you would benefit most from a St. Vincent mixed tape.

+ Following Taylor Swift's girl gang-studded "Bad Blood," it's been rumored that her newest single and music video will be "New Romantics." Perhaps a certain Calvin Harris will make an appearance this time?

+ A formerly lost comet lander named "Philae" is now awake and sending Tweets to Earth. We can't lie—if we were asleep for seven months, we'd want to check Twitter first thing, too. 

+ The Creators Project is beginning a new series called "Kids Critique," where they take kids to art galleries and ask for their reviews. The first episode featured the wildly popular 'Give Me Love' show by Yayoi Kusama. Watch how the children react:
