Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Founding Fathers Of Social Networking Sites

Where would we be without social networking sites? We’d never know that the cheerleader who made fun of us in high school got fat, or that the boy who pulled our pigtails in elementary school got married to the girl who gave our boyfriend chlamydia in college. You’d have no idea that the world was so small, that your best friend is currently “totally stressing,” or that your mother knew how to upload pictures. And who do we have to thank for these little joys? The men of MySpace, Twitter, and Facebook, of course, who all happen to be smart, wealthy and hot! Even though Rupert Murdoch (who bought MySpace for $580 million) said the site is for stalkers, and Facebook is rife with Obama haters who want him dead, and Twitter hasn’t earned a single dollar in revenue, these are our boys. And we know just what to do with them.

Would You Drink Your Coffee From This Mug?

This mug is so cool/creepy, that I just remembered I had a nightmare about it last night. Seriously. I dreamed that I was being attacked and I fought back by throwing my teeth mug at the assailant. Anyway, would you drink your beverage of choice out of this bad boy? [$24, MollaSpace.com via Better Living Through Design] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: This Is Not A Mirage!

Seen so rarely that we sometimes think they might have been just a figment of our imagination, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins, Knox and Vivienne, were photographed with their parents in Amman, Jordan this weekend. [Twitter via DListed] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga (With A Thumbs Up From Madonna) Kills It On “SNL”


If Lady Gaga didn’t end up winning over some of her haters last night, after performing on “Saturday Night Live,” then they’re a lost cause. The pop diva absolutely knocked it out of the park, performing both “Paparazzi” and a medley of her songs, including “Poker Face” (in a gyroscope-enabled dress, natch) — showing off not only her ability to put on an entertaining show, but also her singing talent. Madonna showed up to join Gaga in one of my personal favorite regular skits, “Deep House Dish,” which came off a little awkward, but still was a nice little endorsement from the Queen of Pop. Clip of that, after the jump. Keep reading »

The Top 10 Most Shocking Celebrity Breakups!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are reportedly donezo. Though nothing has been officially confirmed and the couple was seen together earlier this week, it would be a slightly shocking breakup, mostly for the alleged claim that Rihanna is JT’s other woman. After three years of on-again, off-again for Jessica and Justin, all it took was some sightings with the feisty singer to launch a truckload of rumors. [Terra] Though they might not be over IRL, it reminded us of some other shocking celebrity breakups! Keep reading »

Odorific Products Help Men Score Hot Chicks!


Another totally genius “Target: Women” vid from Sarah Haskins. This time she points out how many commercials try and sell products based on their ability to attract hot women, specifically through the power of smell — the smell of clean laundry, gum, deodorant, mini-burgers, the list goes on and on.

Trailer Park: “The Invention Of Lying,” “Zombieland,” “Whip It,” “A Serious Man”

I’m not even going to bother trying to sell you on how delicious a warm tub of buttered popcorn is this week because there are actually four legitimately awesome movies coming out this week and if you’re not interested in any of them, then you have quite simply given up and you hate friendship. This week’s movies are all about surviving in places where you don’t quite fit in: a liar in a world of truth in “The Invention of Lying,” an indie teenage girl in tiara and college prep land in “Whip It,” a person who’s, um, alive in “Zombieland,” and a neurotic Jewish family in post-war America in “A Serious Man.” Keep reading »

My Name Is Going To Be All The Rage In 2019

Writer Laura Wattenberg was issued a challenge by Parents magazine: Predict the top baby names for boys and girls in … 2019? The thing is, the majority of popular baby names are the same as those a decade before. There are just some names that are always in fashion — Jacob and Zoe, for example — so Watternberg decided to take a different approach.

I decided to limit my choices to names currently outside of the top 40. The result isn’t a literal top-10 prediction, but a forecast of the names I expect to have the greatest fashion momentum over the coming decade … To make my list, a name had to both show signs of accelerating growth and tie into broader fashion trends.

The result? Amelia is going to be the number six girl name in 2019! Holla! The full list, after the jump. [Baby Name Wizard] Keep reading »

Chris Rock On Polanski: “It’s Rape!”


I’ve been getting increasingly pissy about the lack of celebrities speaking out against Roman Polanski compared to those — like Whoopi Goldberg — who’ve been making lame excuses for him raping a 13-year-old girl and evading jail time. But not Chris Rock! The comic was on “Jay Leno” last night, promoting his new movie, “Good Hair,” and he let his mouth run on the subject. Clip above! Keep reading »
