R. Kelly's Black Panties, the family-friendly edition with adorable baby animal GIFs

In his new column, award-winning goofball Shea Serrano, whose recent exploits include Bun B's Rapper Coloring and Activity Book, writes about his life and times.

Here's what you need to know about Robert Sylvester Kelly: He's the fucking best. At singing. At wearing masks. At making videos of himself having sex. All of it. And so of course his new album, Black Panties, does amazing things. There's one part where he says he wants to make crazy faces in the mirror just because it's fun, and on a different part, he says he's going to marry a pussy because it's an extra special pussy. Originally, the plan here was to give you a rundown Black Panties using GIFs that captured each song's essence. But that would have required using anime pornography, which didn't seem appropriate. So instead: ADORABLE BABY ANIMAL GIFs!

More fun with animated GIFs: See the smooth moves of the world's top DJs and producers

Categories: GIF Party

The chief criticism of electronic dance music and its massive rise to prominence is that there just isn't much going on behind the tables. Detractors contend that the DJs and producers that command capacity crowds these days bring little more to the party than a bunch of bells and whistles -- or LEDs and lasers, as the case may be. There's more to it than just twisting knobs and tweaking samples; they must also know how to move. We've compiled the signature dance moves of some of the biggest names in EDM that have come through this past year, from Skrillex and Bassnectar to Kaskade and Pretty Lights. Keep reading to see them all get down with their bad selves.

Enjoy these five dance-move GIFs from Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco

The following is a dispatch from Outside Lands Festival, from our sister paper, SF Weekly.

One thing crowds at San Francisco's Outside Lands festival do pretty well is get down. Despite the relentless wind, heavy fog and numbing temperatures, we saw plenty of good moves last weekend -- and some ridiculously silly enthusiasm from certain crowd members. (It helped that Big Boi stuck to playing his bass-heavy hits.) Here, compiled and edited by Ian S. Port and Andrew Nilsen, are the six funniest moves we saw at Outside Lands -- in GIF form, naturally.

Review: Justice at Red Rocks, 8/7/12

Earlier this week, Rusko lead Red Rocks in an intense, nearly two hour dubstep workout. Bringing the tempo up and down, from 110 bpms and shooting way back up 148 within a split second, it was impossible to stand still. Rusko even warned us of what he was about to do, but did we take warning? Nope. Instead, we took pictures. Here is a close examination of Rusko's workout regimen, which obviously works. Look how trim the dude is!
