Usually I find The New York Times Style section to be embarrassingly behind the times. Recent articles include trend pieces on people playing Big Buck Hunter at bars and the popularity of Twitter hashtags. “What’s next? An article about this new TV show called ‘Jersey Shore’?” I am prone to joking.
However, for the first time in a while, this week’s Style section features an article that is relevant to my immediate interests. Sort of. “Powder Surge: It’s A Guy Thing” is about men using talc, baby powder, and fancier branded powders to keep their nether-regions dry during the hot summer months.

Last night, after the Vancouver Canucks lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals (we’re talking hockey here), fans of the team lost their shizz, taking to the streets and rioting.

Oh dear, college pictures of Anthony Weiner in ladywear have surfaced. I think we should thank The National Enquirer for uncovering Screech’s long lost twin. No wonder he was texting pictures of his d**k, he was trying to compensate for being a big nerdball in college. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Finally, we get a peek at Solange‘s ads for makeup brand Rimmel London. Last year, we reported that Rimmel signed both Zooey Deschanel and Solange to be spokeswomen of the brand. We were pleased to see Zooey’s unconventional beauty gracing magazine pages (well, except for this Photoshop fail), but I kept wondering when Solange would begin representing the makeup brand. The wait appears to be over, if these beauty images, which recently surfaced without explanation, are any indication. Now we get to see Solange giving good hair as a spokeswoman for Carol’s Daughter and good face for Rimmel London. [Racked] Keep reading »
