Now that Amanda Seyfried has made her porn (well, kinda) debut in “Lovelace,” we realize we’ve been neglectful in reviewing this blonde’s most stylin’ moments. And believe us, she has come a looong way from her days of “people just forget about her because she’s such a slut” Karen from “Mean Girls.” Okay, so that probably wasn’t the best analogy. But people, we mean her style. She’s seemed to evolve from the safe girl-next-door to fierce risk taker … and we like it.

We’re not really sure what prompted this normal-looking dude, Nate, to take a bath in 312 cans of Pepsi, but by all means, man, do what you gotta do. (Methinks it might be a Pepsi Max commercial disguised as a viral video.) I personally like to cleanse in soap and water and drink soda, but who am I to judge? We’ll, uhh, watch from here.

Pirates, pirates, pirates. We need to have a little chat. Don’t make shitty quality copies unless you want your customers to go crying to the police about not getting what they paid for, undermining your whole business. Which is exactly what a few porn fans did in Hull, England. Fred Thompson (not that one) and other shoddy thieves were convicted of pirating the salacious DVDs under the name Fantasy Dome and counterfeiting bank notes. Customers who bought the DVDs claimed that they weren’t as long or as high-quality as advertised, leading the po-po to discover that the material in question had been stolen. Lesson learned. Low visual quality sucks, especially when you’re trying to get your rocks off. If you’re going to steal and distribute porn, an art that people are very passionate about, at least take pride in your craftsmanship. [Metro UK]
Ah, college. I remember the first day like it happened yesterday. The smell of new paint covering beer-stained dorm room walls. The RAs’ stale greetings in matching neon shirts and Sharpie’d name tags. Awkward, passing smiles from strange hallmates trailed by nervous parents. Hellish name games and forced social bonding. Little did I know that I was about to embark on four of the best and life-changing years of my life … none of which would prepare me for the real world. Like, at all. Don’t get me wrong, I got an amazing education and grew as a human and all that shit, but being in college is like being ensconced under some cushioned, wonderland bubble, where nothing you do affects the real world (except maybe flunking out) and your real goal is just … to be. Here are some of the good (and bad) things that only happen in those four freak years:
Gregory Kloehn, a California designer and proud dumpster dweller, is livin’ the dream, my friends. Not only is this oversized trash receptacle his Brooklyn vacation home, but as it sits atop wheels, he can totally move it outside of the NYC borough. You know, like a little portable bachelor pad. Vegas, here he comes! He converted the $2,000 dumpster into a cozy portable home, complete with a kitchen, toilet (?), bed, retractable roof, and water tank. And truly, what else does one need? He described his epiphany on the HGTV show “You Live In What?” with this explanation: ”It just hit me. I thought, Hey, this is the perfect shape for a home.” How do the ladies resist? Kloehn: 1. The rest of us: 0. [Daily Mail; Metro UK] [Image courtesy of Metro UK]
“Sure, it’ll be tougher to convince an audience I’m the ‘feisty young coed,’ cramming for my biochem final and wondering if Zac Efron’s character likes my new crushed-velvet headband, but I was never crazy about those roles anyway. People assume actresses are afraid to get older; the truth is the roles get a whole lot more compelling once you’re too old to play dumb. So I’m welcoming this development with open arms.”
— Olivia Wilde on why she’s embracing her impending 30-year-old self in Hollywood. The “Drinking Buddies” star goes on to list the do’s and don’ts for other women hitting their big three-oh, such as “DO enjoy your sexual prime” and “DON’T cut your face.” Although, after googling Ms. Wilde’s birthday, she actually turns 30 in March of 2014 … so like, in seven months. A little premature if you ask me, but nonetheless, you should read the rest of the 29-year-old’s advice! [Glamour]
The University of Connecticut officially banned any romantic relationships between students and faculty Wednesday under their “Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment and Inappropriate Romantic Relationships.” While undergrad relationships with faculty are completely banned, graduate student romances are forbidden only when a faculty member is in a position of power over the student.
A new study suggests that girls suffering from anorexia display similar personality traits to those with autism, such as lack of empathy, high focus on detail, and rigid behavior. In some instances, girls with anorexia scored five times higher in autistic qualities than non-anorexic girls on the Autism Spectrum Quotient. Keep reading »
It’s terrible. We were so pulling for Kylie Bisutti, the former winged-underwear model. After all, Victoria’s Secret models are usually only known for doing one of two things: losing all their baby weight in two weeks or dating Adam Levine. Bisutti, on the (wayyy) other hand, left the coveted model position last year because it was clashing with her Christian values. She moved with her husband to Montana where she wrote her memoir, I’m No Angel: From Victoria’s Secret Model To Role Model, and began her new clothing line, God inspired fashion. (Yes, the “i” and the “f” are not capitalized, for some reason.) Keep reading »
