I Could Look At Nicholas Hoult All Day Long, But That Would Be Both Creepy And Unproductive

Feeling slightly less than dazzling this afternoon? Me too. (It’s really grey and rainy and horrible outside and my hair is frizzy; what’s your excuse?) [Um, Rachel wrote this yesterday afternoon, but I didn’t get a chance to put it up until this morning. Weather is much better today! — Amelia] I could’ve used another shot…

The Oreo Separator Machine Will Either Make You Cheer Or Cry

Motivated by his extreme dislike of the center of an Oreo cookie, physicist David Neevel built  a robot-like machine that separates the cookie from the creme.

I know we, as a culture, eat a lot of disgusting things these days — but if 1950s cookbooks are anything to go by, it was even worse then. Virtually all foods were either pickled, creamed or came in some bizarre gelatinous mold form. I guess owing to all of the technological innovations that happened…

Taylor Swift Gets Parodied For A Good Cause!

There is a great parody of Taylor Swift’s “22” floating around the interwebz.  Rather than finding inspiration from ex-boyfriends this song takes aim at a different set of pathetic men: the 22 Senators who did not vote “yes” on the Violence Against Women Act.  The bill will come up for a vote in the

Sorry, Mooches, You Ruined Fashion’s Night Out And Now It’s Over

So this is what they mean when they say “this is why we can’t have nice things”: Fashion’s Night Out is dunzo, folks, and it’s all your fault. No, I’m just kidding. Kind of. See, Americans have a way of taking a perfectly good, maybe even ingenious idea and blowing it up into a different…

God love her, but Lena Dunham has a particular way about her. Which is why Chelsea Davison’s spot-on impersonation of Dunham auditioning for the movie “Zero Dark Thirty” is so hilarious. “You know,” says Davidson’s Dunham, “if I actually have to waterboard you, that is really going to scar me, like, emotionally.” [YouTube]…

Beauty Breakdown: Facial Contouring 101

What is this “contouring” that makeup artists and celebrities speak of?

Confirmed: It Is Possible For A Kids’ Sneakers Commercial To Make You Want To Vomit

These sneaker wedges are totally cool. This commercial that’s been running on MTV? Not so much. Sketchers’ two-inch-high sneaker wedges are called Daddy’$, pronounced “Daddy’s Money,” and the tweens in the commercial sing about a “hot daddy’s girl” — all at once innocent and sexy and spending your “daddy’s” cash. Not your own money or…
