Most Uncharacteristically Ordinary Music Video: No self-administered nipple piercings or creepy hay-matted births in Björk's new video for "Black Lake" -- just the avant-garde queen of Iceland wavering alone atop the barren earth.

Best Tweet by a Cat That Is Actually Billy Corgan: Mr. Thom + Sammi, the Twitter account dedicated to Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan's cats Thom and now-deceased Sammi, welcomed new "sisters" Angelface and Diamond Baby on Tuesday.

Best News About Your Period:
Apple's finally acknowledging it. After the release of iOS 8, the tech giant received flak for its Health app, which had no period tracker (!) despite otherwise monitoring every imaginable bodily function -- from the useful (blood pressure) to the inscrutable ("forced expiratory volume, 1 sec"). With iOS 9, Apple's rolling out a suite of metrics for keeping tabs on reproductive health, including menstruation, ovulation, and sexual activity.-- V.L.

Most Painful/Gross Clip of the Week: This week two former rugby players, Wendell Sailor and Ben Ross, had an arm wrestle on live TV during the rugby league show, The Footy Show. But just 5 seconds into the match, there was clear winner as Sailor broke Ross's arm. There is even a really lovely pop sound to accompany the injury. Watch at your own risk. -- Juliette Kang

Taking questions at a fake press conference after a basketball game. Aw. -- E.T.
