Death Metal Version Of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Somehow More Appealing Than Original


I worked really hard all last week to stop Rebecca Black‘s “Friday” from creeping onto my radar; like, I could see it hovering peripherally, and I heard snippets of the song, but I refused to give it my full attention. Then I saw that there was a metal version of the tune and I just couldn’t resist listening. From what I can tell, this version is more soothing. Keep reading »

13 Scented Candles We’re Obsessed With

As a single lady, one of my favorite ways to relax is by running a hot bubble bath, pouring a big ol’ glass of wine, and lighting a deliciously scented candle. Don’t ever send me into some froofy home accents store and expect me not to walk out with a bag full of expensive, fragrant wax. I am candle obsessed. Sure, it kind of irks me that candles can be so damn expensive, but then I think of the per use cost — how many hours those suckers often burn for — and the pleasure their lovely scent brings me and I feel a wee bit better. With that in mind, here are 12 drool-worthy candles that smell (or purport to smell) so goddamn amazing you’ll want to eat them. Though I really recommend you don’t, FYI.

How To Get A Guy To Clean The House

“If you want someone to do more cleaning all you have to do is make sure there is a vague smell of citrus in the air. This smell will subconsciously influence your partner’s thoughts and their actions, making them think more readily of cleaning products — and using them.”

For example, he says you can get someone to clean the house simply by bombarding them with the scent of citrus. I’m going to leave orange peels around my apartment and then invite a dude over and see what happens. If it works, I’ll never have to clean again! Please, let it work. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Two Men And A Baby … Kind Of

There are alternative ways of becoming a parent if traditional human child rearing is not your cup of tea. Partners of 26 years, Mark Kirby and A.J. Sapolnick, adopted their “son,” Digby, some 20 years ago in Paris. Yes, Digby is technically a “doll” but they don’t care to refer to him that way. To them, he is their child. Keep reading »

Hedgehog In Haute Couture

She may have no spine, but Spudlina has a wicked sense of style. The two-year-old hedgehog, who mysteriously lost her spine, is living the good life in a UK wildlife hospital where she gets to wear stylish, one-of-a-kind, hand-knitted sweaters and receives regular massages.

Photoshop Fail: What Did Rimmel Do To Zooey Deschanel’s Face?

A few months ago, we told you that the makeup brand Rimmel London had signed Zooey Deschanel as their new spokesmodel. So when we saw this ad for Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lipstick, we were like, “Weird, who is this chick? Where’s Zooey?” Oh, but this is Zooey, after some serious Photoshopping. Rendering your famous spokesmodel completely unrecognizable — not to mention a wee bit wall-eyed! — doesn’t seem like a very brilliant business move. [Styleite] Keep reading »
