Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women? Today, Feb. 4, is National Wear Red Day, which is intended to create awareness about the disease; of course, there’s more you can do to show your support for the cause — organizing a fundraiser, for example — but wearing red is an easy place to start, especially if you take the time to tell those around you why you’re wearing it. (Find out more about heart disease and National Wear Red Day here!) If you’re not wearing red today, throw some one before you head out tonight and get started on next year by checking out the 12 pieces of red in this slideshow…

The Weirdest Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever


I did not grow up in a football-loving family (we went to political rallies on Sundays instead), so the Super Bowl has never meant a whole heck of a lot to me. But since I became an adult, I’ve starting tuning into the big game for three obvious reasons: 1) I like the food commonly served at Super Bowl parties, 2) it’s the only time I’m actually interested in watching commercials, and 3) I want to watch the spectacle that is the halftime show. Consider me officially bummed out, then, that my parents were such pigskin-hating hippies in 1989, the year the halftime show took a significantly bizarre turn in the form of Be-Bop Bamboozled, a magic show that involved 3-D glasses and a magician-slash-Elvis-impersonator in glitter spandex. Check it out above and then go read an utterly fascinating interview with the producer behind the show over at Popdust. This year’s entertainers, the Black Eyed Peas, better bring it.

Russell Brand, The Teenage Years

Mother Punishes Son With Hot Sauce, Cold Shower


On “The View” this week, the ladies discussed a mother who appeared on Dr. Phil, who punishes her young son for misbehaving by pouring hot sauce on his tongue and forcing him into a freezing cold shower. (The mother has since been charged with abuse.) In the clip above, it’s clear this poor kid is terrified of his mom and the punishment he knows she’s going to inflict upon him. Look, I know timeout doesn’t always suffice, and there are plenty of people who think a swat on the butt is occasionally warranted (I am not one of them, FYI), but this just reeks of wrong to me. The pain and discomfort it’s meant to cause is so specific. I don’t think jail is the answer for this lady, but parenting classes sure might come in handy. Keep reading »
