You’ve probably heard about the insane skydiving accident that occurred this weekend near Lake Superior in Wisconsin. Two planes carrying nine seasoned skydivers collided at 12,000 feet and miraculously, everyone including the pilots survived. Even crazier: the skydivers’ helmet cams caught the entire crash and plummeting fall. The teeny, tiny part of me that was curious about skydiving is now dead. These are the things nightmares are made of. Seriously, thank God they all survived. In other news, can we talk about how NBC news paid the skydivers $100,000 for the rights to air the video and lock them in for interviews? That seems a little shady to me. [Gawker; NY Daily News]
“In my mind when I picture sex dreams, it’s so bizarre! It’s me standing there with some massive couture creation, staring at a blow-up doll or something. That’s what my sex dreams are like. My sex dreams are weird! … Haven’t you ever been laying in bed with someone and fantasized about someone else? In the song I’m explaining my infidelity to the person I’m with, and then I’m having a conversation with myself to the person that I’m fantasizing about.”
– Lady Gaga tells Kiss FM the inspiration behind her song “Sex Dreams.” I can’t say I have the slightest idea what she’s talking about. I’ve never had a sex dream about anyone wearing couture. Nor have I had a conversation with myself imagining that I’m talking to the person I’m fantasizing about while I’m with someone else. [Mirror UK]
It’s a universal truth that men get freaked the fuck out when a woman utters the phrase, “We need to talk.” (It freaks women out as well, but not to quite the same extent.) If you want to get a guy quivering in his boots, those four words will always do the trick. But WHY? From what men tell me, “we need to talk” signifies extreme relationship danger. To a guy, it’s the verbal equivalent of being hunted by a bear. It’s talk of marriage, babies, cheating or whatever thing you know he doesn’t want to talk about. It makes a guy feel trapped. Boxed in. In trouble. It sends him into an automatic anxiety spiral. I’ve personally retired the phrase at the behest of my boyfriend. “Don’t announce the major convo, just get into it,” he requested. Noted. Keep reading »
I would like to speak to the person who approved this photo of Stevie Nicks and her Chinese Crested Yorkshire Terrier mix, Sulamith Wülfing, for the cover of QWeekend. It’s just seems indecent to show so much dog crotch on the cover of a newspaper. And that vagina-esque feather boa certainly isn’t helping. [Gawker]
Let’s be honest, being on both sides of the bridesmaid game can be super annoying. It’s hard to say no when a friend asks you to be part of her special day and before you’ve even marked the date on your calendar, you’ve been asked to spend $1,000 on an awful burgundy dress and gold heels that you’ll never, ever wear again. On the bride’s side, I can only imagine that it must be irritating to have bitches whining and moaning about having to get their nails polished Ballet Slipper pink and the other, long list of simple list of requirements you’ve given them.
Fuck it all! Simplify everyone’s life by getting a bridesmaid who doesn’t need dress, who never talks back and who doesn’t need to be taught how to keep pace when walking down the aisle.
Bride Alex Wells got it right when she asked her thoroughbred horse Toffee to be her bridesmaid. Keep reading »
According to some new research, the unknown enemy of many a relationship is psoriasis (that skin disorder that Kim Kardashian has). Who knew? I mean, once a guy canceled a date by telling me he “was itching all over.” But I’m pretty sure that was just lie because he ghosted after that. And he definitely didn’t have psoriasis. Anyhow, the research found that a staggering 25 percent of all psoriasis sufferers claim they were dumped at some point because of their scabby, scaly skin. Of course, the dumpers could have been trying to sugar-coat things when they said: “It’s not you, it’s your psoriasis,” but it’s such an dick-ish things to say that it seems unlikely.
With all the perfectly good reasons to dump someone — they’re untrustworthy, they bore you to tears, they’re life dream is to become a nudist and live off the grid — psoriasis is not anywhere near acceptable. Emotional incompatibility. Fine. Different visions for the future. Sure. Psoriasis. You suck, psoriasis shamers. This gets me thinking, if so many people are getting canned over a totally treatable auto-immune disorder, others must be getting dumped for even stupider reasons. Below, I’ve started a running list of some reasons that are NOT valid for breaking up because I feel like we ought to have one. You’re gonna have to come up with something more substantial, people… Keep reading »

“My pregnancy with Maxwell, specifically because she is a girl, made me realize that I wouldn’t be able to protect her from everything I had been through as a woman. I wonder each day how I can shield her not only from the critics in the world, but from the criticism we all dole out to ourselves. My pregnancies (especially my first with Maxwell) were well documented and my struggles with my weight and body image have played out in front of the world. As hard as that has been, the hardest part is to realize that with all the hurtful and harsh criticism from others, I have been the hardest on myself.
Raising Maxwell makes me realize that I don’t want her to see me beat myself up for things like food choices or numbers on a scale. I don’t want her to learn anything like that from me. Those things don’t determine who we are and instead make us feel terrible about ourselves. I want to teach her to value herself, listen to herself and tune out the world. I want her to know her value, rather than spending her energy fighting negative voices from within.”
