Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Amelia McDonell-Parry
My bikini has been through the ringer — two summers ago, I learned how to surf in it; I wore it every weekend to the beach in Long Island the summer after; in December, I rocked it on a week-long vacation in Mexico. It’s so faded and stretched out that when I went to the beach this weekend and dove in the ocean to cool off, the bottoms were pulled almost entirely off by the force of the relatively small wave. It’s time for a new bikini (I prefer them to one-pieces) and preferably one that I can swim in. Here are 12 cute options that hopefully won’t leave me — or you — indecently exposed.
Last week I revealed my dating fetish and the Friskyverse so graciously responded by sharing theirs. Reading through the comments, I was reminded, once again, of how crazy specific everyone’s taste is. Just goes to show that one should not to take it too personally when rejection occurs in the dating world. You never really know what a person is into, huh? After the jump, the Friskyverse’s most common dating fetishes. Keep reading »
The woman who accused NYPD officer Kenneth Moreno of raping her in own home while his partner, Franklin Mata, stood watch, released a statement yesterday responding to the jury’s acquittal. The 29-year-old woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, says that the verdict “brought me to my knees” and is “overwhelmed by the support” offered by those who have chosen “to speak up in my honor.” The media has already given Moreno’s wife Julia the opportunity to trash the accuser, so I feel it’s only fair to print her statement in full, after the jump… Keep reading »
“I used to be a little embarrassed by how she and my dad would dress, but now I steal their clothes all the time. My dad has totally taken my Cat Stevens T-shirt, but it’s OK, I have his Black Flag one and that’s amazing. And my mum…There’s this little vintage store where she lives in Topanga Canyon [California] called Hidden Treasures. It’s just a local spot, but we’ve been living there forever, so my mum will often donate her stuff. She took a bunch of stuff down while I was away and I went there when I got back and bought five of her things. I got home and was like, ‘I can’t believe I just paid for your clothes!’ Out of everything in the store, I’d bought my mother’s things.”
– Zoe Kravitz, who stars in “X-Men: First Class,” chats with ASOS about growing up with super boho Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet as parents. The insane coolness of Lisa Bonet aside (such a style icon!), I totally relate to Zoe on this. My dad was, is, and always will be a hippie — in perspective, definitely, but also sartorially, from the top of his ponytailed, yellow-spectacled head to the tips of his Birkenstock-clad toes. Don’t even get me started on the battered Volkswagon van — with the political bumper stickers and Rastafarian curtains — he took me to school in! As a kid, I’ll admit, his look totally embarrassed me, but when I became a teenager, I started stealing his vintage Ts and worn-in Levi’s. Seriously, I wish I had his “Jesse Jackson ’88″ campaign T-shirt for my summer wardrobe… [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
For the last month, I’ve been getting my soft-core porn fix from HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” that nerdy show based on a series of books beloved by nerds like our own John DeVore. It has the same appeal for me as, say, a V.C. Andrews novel did when I was 13 and just learning to masturbate. There’s wordy purple dialogue and lots of nudity and, oh, yeah, incest between an attractive blonde brother and sister. Sunday’s episode featured lots of tits, anal play and a noticeable lack of merkins considering the show is supposed to take place well before Gillette was invented. Anyhoo, the main problem with the sex on “Game of Thrones” is that, well, save a few hotties, the dudes are not very attractive. That’s why I am so excited for “True Blood” to return on June 26 — thanks to rampantly naked Vampire Eric (played by Alexander Skarsgard), the summer is gonna get a whole lot hotter. Above, the first three minutes of the season four premiere. Are you horny, er, psyched for “True Blood” to return? [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
