Forget About Her Politics, Let’s Talk About Michele Bachmann’s Hair

Michele Bachmann’s Tea Party politics are not to everyone’s taste. Her hair? That’s another story.

Goblin King Meets Macbook

This amazing decal of David Bowie as the Goblin King instantly transforms a lowly Macbook into a magical scene from the “The Labyrinth,” aka The Best Movie Ever. Ideally it would come with a separate decal depicting that legendary codpiece, but hey, this is a great start. [$23, Stickerman]…

What Was Your Worst Wardrobe Malfunction?

I understand that wardrobe malfunctions are a part of life. I accept the fact that buttons pop off and pants rip and blouses become suddenly see-through in certain lights. But that doesn’t make it any easier when it actually happens, for example, this weekend when I was walking around town and realized that my skirt…

“Absolutely Fabulous” Is Coming Back!

Now this is a far better idea than “Sex and the City 3.” Long before there was Carrie Bradshaw with her tutu/head scarf pairings and Samantha with her fondness for vibrators, there were Edina and Patsy of “Absolutely Fabulous.” The 40-something magazine editor and her sidekick, a PR agent, were big time hippies who went…

Bag Lady No More

I’m always running somewhere after work — yoga, a writing group, dinner with friends — and I don’t have time to make the trek home. So I carry everything I could possibly ever need with me for the day in various totes and duffels. More often than not, I end up looking like a crazy…

Morning Quickies: Lindsay Lohan Asks Out Chris Brown Over Twitter

Lindsay Lohan tweeted at Chris Brown on Sunday night to ask, “Wanna meet?” Chris retweeted Lindz, but didn’t publicly reply. If these two go out, it will either be the worst idea ever or a brilliant melding of celebrity WTF-ery. [Celebuzz]

Puerto Rican Senator Maybe Caught On Grindr

It’s been a month or two since we had a good political sex scandal. But you didn’t think those politicos had cleaned up their act or learned what a terrible idea it is to text/email flirt and/or take sexy photos of yourself, did you? Of course not! The latest scandalize involves Roberto Arango, a conservative…

Quickies: Michele Bachmann Loves White People UPDATE: It’s A Hoax!

Leave it to Rep. Michele Bachmann to yell “Who loves white people?” at a campaign stop. Fortunately, she was only referring to the White People Soul Band, a group that performed there. She probably shouldn’t appear with musicians that sound like White Power bands, though. (Just for the record, they’re not.) [BuzzFeed] UPDATE:

If Hurricane Irene Were A Rom-Com

What do Hurricane Irene and “I Don’t Know How She Does It” have in common? They both are going to take the box office by storm. Well maybe not. But together, they make a good joke. Our apologies to Sarah Jessica Parker’s face. Nothing personal. [Urlesque]…

10 Things That Shocked Me About Lands’ End Canvas

The other day my friend Niki said, “Hey do you know about Lands’ End Canvas? They have really cute things.” and then the next few minutes played out like a really contrived commercial. I tilted my head to one side and said, “Lands’ End? Cute? I hiiiiiiighly doubt that.” But Niki insisted, and then showed…

Kate Winslet Talks Escaping From That Fire

“I’m just glad that everyone is safe. And this easily could not have been the case … I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were watching the flames, and saying, ‘At the end of the day, what you realize is that all that matters is the people that…
