Indie Newsroom is brought to you by Olympic bling, Tilda’s Time and shit parodies of Girls say.

The Olympics Are All Up in Ryan Lochtes Grill Today in Indie Newsroom

- Olympian heartthrob/Vogue coverboy/blackest girl here Ryan Lochte sported a diamond grill to accept his first gold medal at the 2012 Olympics, but the Olympic Committee stayed playa hatin’ and made him take it out before he stepped up to the podium. [Fashionista]

- Tilda Swinton, no stranger to fashion or films, will kill those two birds with one stone in The Future Will Last a Very Long Time, a short in which she communes with the dead and their couture. [WWD]

- Now that the Olympics Opening Ceremony has bored everyone, we can now reflect on each country’s respective kits and, of course, openly mock Spain…as they knew we would. [Styleite]

- Boys, a parody of HBO’s 20-something comedy hit/Emmy-magnet, Girls, has gotten the seal of approval from none other than show producer Judd Apatow. I guess just replace all that vagina humor with some dick jokes and you’ve got…every show on TV. [Gawker]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
