Style Stealer: Taylor Schilling Knows Rompers Are The New LBDs

Style Stealer: Taylor Schilling

It took me a second, but I’m fully behind the evening romper trend, especially during summer when the weather is warm and legs are tan. Taylor Schilling — aka Piper on “Orange is the New Black” — paired her chic black and white playsuit with a white tuxedo blazer, festive heels and a red lip, a fun alternative to the standard LBD (or orange prison jumpsuit).

86 Of The Best Feelings In The Entire World

ways-to-be-happy-jump-in-pudle

The past week has been kinda a bummer for me, and I’ve hit the point where I’ll search for a little happiness just about anywhere. When I saw that someone had asked the Reddit community “What is the best feeling in the world?”, I clicked expecting to see a mix of classics (like peeling the protective plastic off of new gadgets) and the obvious sexual things (which, of course, were there).

What I didn’t expect was to have my heart basically melt out of my body by one user’s completely spot-on list of 86 absolutely perfect pleasures. Read them all on College Candy…

NYPD CPR 03.27.2013

This weekend, police in Brooklyn, New York, busted some folks who were grilling on the sidewalk — which, I didn’t know until reading this New York Daily News article, is illegal. But a “melee” broke out, with several of the parties resisting arrest. Now there are photographs being distributed by a community advocacy group which purport to show a NYPD officer with his arm in an illegal chokehold around a woman, Rosan Miller, who is seven-months pregnant.

This Bracelet Will Give You An Electric Shock For Indulging In Bad Habits

Well, It's An Idea

An upcoming bracelet and app called the Pavlok will help you change your habits by giving you an electric shock when you fail at them. You get to choose the habit you’d like to work on, like spending too much time on the internet, going to the gym, losing hard-earned cash, or getting up at a certain time in the morning. Then you get to set a consequence to hold yourself accountable, which can range from Pavlok posting embarrassing stuff on your on Facebook wall, vibrations from your bracelet, losing hard-earned cash, or even a 340V electric shock. As the Pavlok’s promotional video says, there are so many self-improvement devices on the market that don’t really work, so “what if we get a device that changes behavior?”

Spoiler alert: the other products didn’t work because people change their own behavior. Keep reading »

It’s Time To Cry: Mom Fighting Cancer Helps Her Son Meet His Hero, Ringo Starr

Ringo Fan
Ringo's Biggest Fan

Mom Cali Tobias has been diagnosed with breast cancer four times, and is now facing ovarian cancer. She told ABC News, “I need to make sure I have as many fun memories with my kids as I can while I’m still here.” To do that, she arranged for her son King, a Beatles superfan, to meet Ringo Starr. King, 5, is a musician himself and can play some of the Beatles’ hits on his guitar. When Cali got tickets to Ringo’s concert in San Jose, California, this month, she and King were invited backstage. Ringo greeted King with a big hug, and he even got to play the legend’s drums! So sweet. [Huffington Post]

Meet Pikinis, A New Creepily Voyeuristic App!

It’s a special day. Pikinis, an app that syncs with your Facebook friends list and allows you to search exclusively for bikini pics, is now available for download.

According to the app’s creator, Ted Kramer, Pikinis is for both men and women who want to see those they desire is a state of partial undress. But that’s very clearly bullshit — this app is for looking at girls. It even has a fun “pineapple” feature that allows you to “pineapple” a pic for later — that is, to save it. So you can look at it, um, you know … later. When you’re alone. Keep reading »

16-Year-Old Japanese Girl Charged With Decapitating Friend

Japanese Girl Charged With Decapitating Friend

A 16-year-old Japanese girl described by friends as emotionally unstable has been charged with bludgeoning and decapitating a 15-year-old friend, telling police “I did it all by myself,” the Japan News reports. The body of Aiwa Matsuo was found early yesterday in the suspect’s Sasebo apartment, where she’d lived alone since April; Aiwa’s left hand and head had been cut off. Police say the unnamed suspect hit Aiwa over the head several times with a metal instrument on Saturday night, then strangled her with a cord; an autopsy today revealed Aiwa died of suffocation. The pair had been friends since middle school. Read more on Newser…

Incredible Badass Feminist Sinead O’Connor Doesn’t Want To Be Called A Feminist

“I don’t think of myself as being a feminist. So I don’t really think about feminism a whole lot, to be honest. I wouldn’t label myself anything, certainly not something with an ‘ism’ or an ‘ist’ at the end of it. I’m not interested in anything that is in any way excluding of men. … [E]qually, I’m not interested in anything anyone else might like me to be.”

Color me surprised. Sinead O’Connor, the woman behind badass feminist anthems like “No Man’s Woman” and “Daddy I’m Fine,” is not so interested in being labeled a feminist. Sure, she seems more against aligning herself with any set of beliefs out of a distaste for labels, which I suppose is to be expected from such an iconoclastic figure. But I was surprised Sinead would characterize feminism as possibly “excluding of men” at all. For a singer who has SO MUCH girl power spirit imbued in her songs, has spoken out about rampant sexualization within the music industry, and named her new album after Sheryl Sandberg’s “Ban Bossy” campaign, well, it’s disappointing that she has the impression that equal rights for all only benefits women.
