This Carved Book Art Will Blow Your Mind

Artist Brian Dettmer uses surgical tools to carve up old encyclopedias, dictionaries, and medical journals. No materials are added and nothing inside the books are relocated, he simply carves the existing paper, one page at a time. When he’s finished, the vintage text and illustrations become intricate 3D dioramas with stunning detail and unexpected themes.

Rachel Maddow Often Discusses Vaginas On-Air

Because she’s a lesbian.

That, sadly, seems to be the logic behind The Daily Caller’s daily tally of how many times Rachel Maddow has said the words “vagina” or “vaginal” on her show. No, I’m not making this up: someone at the conservative news site kept track of the 58 V-bombs that Maddow dropped…

The Best Hair At The 2012 Academy Awards

A Brief History Of Angelina Jolie’s Leg On The Red Carpet

The funniest thing about Angelina Jolie’s thigh’s big display at the Academy Awards last night is that even she was acting like it was the first time the world was seeing it. I swear, it even had its own sound effect. Every time she thrust it out, I heard “Kah-BLAM!” But seriously, folks, Angelina is always showing one of…

The other night I went on a date. I was following my own advice about getting back to dating basics, and thought it would be a good idea to invite my date to a live taping of a game show that I was offered tickets to. Perfect. A date where we could just have some…

The Top 10 WTF Moments At The 2012 Academy Awards

So, the Oscars last night were kinda weird, right? Billy Crystal’s hosting definitely wasn’t as cringe-worthy as Anne Hathaway and James Franco last year, but the whole show seemed a little off.

Viola Davis On Rocking Her Natural Hair

“There hasn’t been any occasion that I felt brave enough to do it. … I feel very powerful, I really do. I feel more powerful every day, more secure in who I am, and I’ve waited so long for that … It feels so divine.”

The Best Boobs At The 2012 Academy Awards

Last night’s Academy Awards broadcast was less than thrilling, but that’s okay. We’ll always find a way to entertain ourselves by ogling the gorgeous dresses and the starlets wearing them. While not everyone won big during the awards ceremony, many stars shone brightly on the red carpet and during the much-more-fun and alcohol-fueled after-parties. And…

Treat Yo Self To A Delicious Drink

I love “Parks and Recreation,” especially the very special “Treat Yo Self” episode, wherein Donna Meagle and Tom Haverford spend the entire day pampering themselves with luxuries. “Clothes. Treat yo self. Fragrances. Treat yo self. Massages. Treat yo self. Mimosas. Treat yo self. Fine leather goods. Treat yo self. It’s the best day of the…
