Halloween Costume Inspiration: Astrophysicist & Host Of “Cosmos,” Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Astrophysicist & Host Of "Cosmos," Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Neil DeGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, author and host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” is a pretty big hero of mine. The way he talks about science makes it utterly captivating for everyone, even those of us who struggled in our high school science classes. No one makes the Big Bang sound sexier than NDGT, deal with it. Show your love for his brilliance by dressing up in his trademark celestial vest, dad jeans and sexy ‘stache this Halloween, inviting everyone in your orbit to come on journey on your spaceship of the imagination. (Turn this into a couple’s costume by getting a friend or date to dress up as Carl Sagan! All you really need is a turtleneck and blazer.) Keep reading »

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes took to Twitter earlier this morning to post a series of extremely upsetting accusations against her father, Rick Bynes, who she says verbally and physically abused her as a child, fondled himself in front of her, and asked her if she wanted to have sex with him. Then she tweeted that a microchip in her brain that her father made her get made her make the accusations, which she is now, sort of retracting, though she hasn’t deleted the initial tweets.

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Helena From “Orphan Black”

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Helena From "Orphan Black"

“Orphan Black” is one of my favorite shows on TV, so who better to channel for Halloween then my favorite clone, Helena. (Or, if you’ve got a gang of girls, go as ALL the clones.) Chances are, you can pull a lot of this costume from your own closet — Helena is all about her army green hooded parka, basic tanks, grubby jeans and rugged boots, just make sure to distinguish yourself from the average street urchin by adding a curly blonde wig and red-rimmed eyes, “Bahhhhhh”-ing at everyone you meet, talking about your sestras, and pulling an array of snacks, like toast, sugar packets and fried chicken, from your coat pockets.

10 WTF Things Susan G. Komen Should Pinkify For Breast Cancer Awareness (Ranked!)

Susan G. Komen Pink Drill Bits

To be clear, raising money to increase awareness and find a cure for breast cancer is a great, important thing. But Susan G. Komen For The Cure, which lost all of my support when they pulled funding from Planned Parenthood, even though the women’s health organization provides vital breast cancer screenings to low-income women, continues to go to ridiculously gross lengths to pinkify the cause. As if pink handguns weren’t enough, Komen has teamed up with Baker Hughes, a major drilling services company involved in fracking, to make 1,000 pink drill bits, which Baker Hughes says is them “doing our ‘bit’ for the cure.” GET IT?! A Komen spokesperson explained the partnership “grew from Baker Hughes’ involvement in our Houston Race for the Cure” and that “the evidence to this point does not establish a connection between fracking and breast cancer.” [Salon]

This makes me want to dry heave. Destroy the environment FOR THE CURE! Carry pink weapons FOR THE CURE! Seriously, what will Susan G. Komen pinkify next? Because I have some ideas, ranked from bad to worst… Keep reading »
