Before you even ask, yes, we are dead serious. Occasionally a product comes along that is so ingenious, so practical, so convenient, and so incredibly life-altering that we are able to put aside our shallow desire to look cool and stylish in public. The Backpack Umbrella is one such product. Imagine the rainy day possibilities! You could walk your dog or carry groceries or play with a yo-yo or talk on the phone, all while remaining dry and having one hand free to flip-off judgmental onlookers … who are busy laughing at your dorky Backpack Umbrella.
With his caustic personality and kajillions of dollars, Larry David
is not someone I would like to have as an enemy — so Bentley Williams
had better watch out! Both Larry and “Bachelorette” Ashley Herbert
were guests on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last night and Larry couldn’t stop himself from interjecting during Ashley’s interview. Ashley, of course, had her heart broken by Bentley, who pretended to be interested in her
while also trash-talking her on camera. Larry wasn’t aware of the details of Bentley’s douchebaggery, but no matter: “I’m gonna kill that mofo,” he announced. Get in line, Larry. [via PopEater

All my nightlife prayers have been answered. This September, director David Lynch is opening a “Mulholland Drive”-themed haunt called “Silencio,” after the club in the film. The Lynchian hot spot, which will be located in Paris’ Montmarte district (my very, very favorite part of Paris, where the Bohemian movement was born), will reportedly be a concert hall, art gallery, restaurant, bar, and club combo decorated in accordance with the film. I am picturing it right now—absinthe a plenty (and maybe some Pabst for good measure), a cowboy, waitresses named Betty, blue keys to get in and out of every room, singers who collapse, eccentric folks enacting wild, Bacchanalian orgies. Oh, the bizarre possibilities are endless! It’s like Disneyland for “Twin Peaks” fan-girls. [ONTD] Keep reading »
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. Basically, the NY Times printed an article about ball sweat and how men deal with it. Keep reading »
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. I truly cannot comprehend why human beings would destroy property, light cars on fire, and loot businesses in their hometown, especially over something as irrelevant as a sporting game. I am genuinely disturbed. Uproxx has some startling photos of what went down last night in Vancouver, including this incredible shot of a couple making out in the middle of the street with riot police all around.
