Happy Star Trek Week everyone! I have been waiting for this week to begin for months! My fellow Trekkie cohort, Winona, and I are excited to take you on our continuing mission to explore the many connections between “Star Trek” lore and sex, dating, relationships, style and feminism. As Benedict Cumberbatch in “Star Trek Into Darkness” would say, SHALL WE BEGIN?
The “Star Trek” canon is filled with a multitude of alien races with their own histories, philosophies, and personality traits, all of which lend themselves to specific dating types. So which one are you? Let’s review eight alien races and how they would be as modern daters. Which one fits your dating personality? Click on to find out and share in the comments!
Last night, during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards, singer Miguel was feeling ambitious and took a flying leap over the crowd, only to come barreling down, crotch first, on two fans at the edge of the stage. One was kicked in the head and the other found Miguel’s crotch at her throat. (Both women are thankfully okay.) Performance fail = amaaaaazing GIF material. Check it after the jump… Keep reading »
“I loved movies so much, sometimes, I’d shove them down the front of my pants. I liked the way they feel.”
– Just one of a few notable Ryan Gosling quotes in the upcoming documentary, “Seduced & Abandoned,” according to New York magazine writer Jada Yuan. Ughhhh — that’s a good “ugh,” by the way — he may be joking about his obsession with movies (or not), but the thought of the Gos stick anything down his pants makes me weak. Does he need an extra hand? God, I am such a perv. The fact that this New York magazine piece makes reference to a “Last Tango In Paris” remake starring Ryan is not helping. [NYMag.com via Jezebel]
I don’t generally expect my eyes to blink back tears and a lump to swell in my throat while watching an episode of “Saturday Night Live,” but there’s a first time for everything. Saturday night’s “SNL” finale featured the show bidding three of its best male cast members — Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, — adieu. First, “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyers — who will also be leaving the show midway through next season, taking over Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Nite” slot when Fallon replaces Jay Leno at “The Tonight Show” – welcomed Hader for his final segment as Stefon, New York City’s most fabulous nightlife expert. In the segment, Stefon, who has long crushed on Seth, flounces off set, fed up with not getting Seth’s respect for his recommendations. Besides, he’s engaged to someone else now and they’re getting married! What happens next is pure perfection. (Clip above!) Keep reading »
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You may have surrendered to a lazy sense of logic as of late, but stop freaking yourself out about it. This is exactly what the universe wants of you. If you truly want happiness, you will see that simplicity is the foundation of all and the more you take responsibility for others, the more complicated it gets. Untangle your brain, retrain their’s.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Borderline behavior isn’t odd for you and no one will even be the wiser when you decide to take a leap off into the great unknown. There isn’t much you can sort out in the future, so don’t damn yourself by making a commitment to something you don’t care about. At the very least, changing the scenery is your lucky charm now.

That’s been the rumor for a few weeks, but now E! Online has gone as far as to confirm the news, saying that multiples sources have told them it’s true — Blue Ivy is going to be a big sister! Now, I’ll hold off on the mazels until we get official confirmation from Bey and husband Jay-Z, because I don’t want to jinx anything. After all, Jayonce and their brethren are among my primary passions in life, so while I normally get kind of annoyed/jealous when celebs in my age bracket or younger have multiple kids before I have one, I make an exception for my favorite celebrity super couple. Anyway, the countdown, ahem, has started for the Knowles-Carter family to confirm or deny this news! I’ll start chilling the champagne and titanium straws! [E! Online]
Was Miley Cyrus twerking while her makeup team applied her glam look for the Maxim Hot 100 party? Miley is the mag’s choice for hottest woman alive, but the chalky white makeup around her mouth makes her look more like the hottest ventriloquist doll. Like, from far away, her mouth looks like it has skin-colored bandages around it. (Side story: I once hooked up with a guy who tried to cover an ENORMOUS zit on his chin with a small piece of band-aid and it had the same effect.) I suspect an overzealous approach to covering blemishes and/or beard burn around the mouth or a weird attempt at facial contouring is to blame for this makeup mishap. Or twerking, because Miley always be twerkin’.
We may think celebrities are always picture perfect, but every once in a while we see behind the curtain — especially when those bright bulbs are flashing on the red carpet. Makeup is required. More specifically, powder. But it’s a delicate balance. Too much and your favorite celeb may look like a clown, too little and they’re shinier than an oil slick. Click through to see some very unfortunate celebrity powder mishaps.
In honor of “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which opens TO-FUCKING-DAY, I had planned on devoting this entire week to the series. STAR TREK WEEK, I was calling it, because I am creative. And then I got strep throat and was basically comatose in bed from Monday through Wednesday, returning yesterday to work quietly from my sickbed. Star Trek Week was ruined. OR WAS IT? See, having a week devoted to “Star Trek” on The Frisky is maybe a little odd, a little self-indulgent, but the bonus is that I can basically have it anytime I want, so Star Trek Week will go on next week, a week late, because like Jean Luc Picard, I am the Captain of this ship and I WILL MAKE IT SO.
In the meantime, “Star Trek Into Darkness” still opens TO-FUCKING-DAY, and while I already posted a spoiler-free review of the film, allow me to further encourage you to see it with these 10 sligggghtly spoiler-y hints about the film’s plot. And if that’s not enough for you, they are accompanied by GIFs of Benedict Cumberbatch, aka the World’s Sexiest Mole Rat, who plays the villain John Harrison in the film. Swoon. Keep reading »
At eight months pregnant, Kim Kardashian’s feet have naturally started to swell, uh, a bit, something she hasn’t made any easier on herself by continuing to wear high heels that look like medieval torture devices. I mean, just look at what’s happening to her feet in the shoes she wore yesterday — that ain’t right. And lest you think the pain ends once she kicks her heels off, get a look at a photo she posted to Instagram a few weeks ago, after the jump. Say it with me, y’all — FREE KIM’S FEEEEEET!
