Stay Warm & Rock Out With Hear Muffs

It took me seven years East Coast winters to figure out, but ear muffs are essential to staying warm when the temperatures drop. You could be bundled up in your warm coat, gloves and scarf, with two sweaters and long johns layered underneath, but if your ears are exposed, you will still feel frozen. Not even listening to your favorite song on your iPod will distract from the feeling of your lobes growing painfully numb. I hope the genius at American Eagle Outfitters who realized the obvious and created earmuffs with built-in headphones got a promotion and a raise. Now listening to your favorite song will keep your ears from getting frostbite and falling off. Rad! [$19.50, American Eagle Outfitters]

Approval Matrix: The 2012 Grammy Award Nominations

Ugh, the Grammys: so, so, so boring and mainstream in their nominations with the occasional WTF?! thrown in for good measure. The 2012 nominees, announced last night, are no exception. Adele was deservedly nominated for all the major awards and will likely take them all home. Meanwhile, Beyonce’s 4, which was arguably one of her best albums ever, was snubbed, as was Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” Jay-Z and Kanye West got some love for their Watch the Throne collab, while Lady Gaga’s third consecutive Album of the Year nod has her tied for the record with The Beatles. And then there was something about a band called Skrillex making me feel old. Those are the noms in a nutshell, with more of my thoughts displayed in the Approval Matrix at left. Here‘s a list of more nominees.

Courtney Stodden has been laying sorta low the last few weeks, going to church in miniskirts and whatnot, but she’s back on my radar this week after sitting down for an interview with The Fab Life. Court tells the website the obvious, which is that her career aspiration is to bring back classic Old Hollywood glamour. Done and done, sister. What’s next? [The Fab Life]

November 30: What Are We Wearing Today?

The Frisky offices are fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to be exactly a half-block from the location of J. Crew’s current sample sale. All of us went this morning and came outhigh on adrenaline, cashmere, ballet flats, and the thrill of insane markdowns. Luckily, we were also unharmed, save for our wallets, despite the frenzied and feral behavior inside. Anyway, here’s what we wore to battle the crowd — and to work, of course.

“The Wire” Monopoly Board Game Needs To Become A Reality

To Whom It May Concern At Parker Brothers:

Please make this “Wire”-inspired mockup of Monopoly a reality. I need it. I need it the way Bubbles needs smack. Speaking of which, I would also like to humbly suggest the addition of Omar Little, Stringer Bell, Marlo Stanfield, Avon Barksdale, and Prop Joe game pieces. (I promise not to make the Omar and Stringer game pieces make out.) Anyway, can you get started on this soon? I would like it for Christmas. Please don’t make me bust a cap in your ass.

Sincerely,

Amelia
