Turbie Twist Takes The Elbow Grease Out Of Towel-Drying

Let’s get this out of the way: three years ago, almost to the day, I lopped off much of my midback-length hair in an ill-fated incident best summarized as Something That Should Not Have Happened.

Jason Schwartzman And Roman Coppola Star In This “Videogram About Love”

Psssst — if you’re only going to watch one video on the Internet today, make it this one. I don’t know who goes about their day thinking, “I’m only going to watch one video on the Internet today,” but maybe it’s you. I could probably benefit from a rule like that myself, come to think…

Men, Quit Being A Bag-Of-Bones Weakling!

No wonder some men can have pretty messed up ideas about masculinity. This old bodybuilding ad posted on Boing Boing — in which men claim to have gained 25 and 70 pounds of muscle and increased their “He-Man looks” by 1,000 percent — really goes for the hard sell. Is it just me or doe…
