The latest internet craze in South Korea is known as “gastronomic voyeurism,” or watching people eat their meals live online, and Park Seo-yeon is considered “The Diva” of the game. Her job description includes cooking an elaborate meal and letting strangers watch her eat it during a live, daily webcast. Yes, that’s really it. No funny business.
“People enjoy the vicarious pleasure of my online show when they can’t eat that much or don’t want to eat food at night or are on a diet,” explains Park. Keep reading »

They’re really stepping up their game for Puppy Bowl X. There won’t be a mass wedding officiated by Queen Latifah (as far as I know), but there will be aerial coverage done by some sort of fluffy rodents, penguin cheerleaders and a half-time performance by Keyboard Cat!
You can check out the in this gallery and pick your favorite pooches. I feel like Alvin the Poodle has that MCP (Most Cuddlable Puppy) look about him. I guess we’ll just have to wait until game day and see who takes the title. Check out a preview of all the growling, scampering and sportsmanship ahead, after the jump! [Animal Planet] Keep reading »
So you’ve finally found The One (or at least The One For The Foreseeable Future) and you’ve committed to a serious relationship. Now what? In our new weekly column, Life After Dating, we’ll discuss the unique joys and challenges of coupledom.
As I’ve mentioned before, there are many things that I miss about being single, for instance, watching “Rupaul’s Drag Race” and “America’s Next Top Model” whenever I felt like it, waking up at 7AM and running errands, and sitting down to a gourmet salad for one. But one thing I didn’t realize until I was no longer single, was that when you’re on your own for long stretches of time, you drop into a strange zone where it’s just you, yourself, and you. Another single friend of mine once confessed to me that she had invented “an imaginary dog” that she regularly “fed leftovers from dinner” and I nodded, as if it were a completely normal thing to do. The fact is, when you’re lonely, companionship, even in seemingly insane forms, is what keeps you sane. It’s not until you have another person to witness you, say, asking your houseplants how they’re feeling today, that you get your first whiff of, “Oh, wow, that’s a little bit crazy, huh?”
Here are a few of the things that I did when I was single that I’ve surmised, due to my partner’s frequent side-eye glances, are rather strange… Keep reading »
I was traveling last night, so I missed most of the Grammys. I tuned in for about four minutes, in which I caught 34 couples getting married by Queen Latifah. It was like one of those strange, “Wizard of Oz”-type dreams that would be hard to explain: “It was the Grammys and Madonna was there and Macklemore and it was a giant wedding!”
Yeah right. But really. That happened. The Grammys went there. And it was pretty amazing. Keep reading »
I’m heavily focused on dessert right now because the chocolate-addicted part of me needed to go on a refined sugar cleanse. It’s been 24 days and yes, I have been having involved dreams about eating massive bowls of ice cream. Any way you spin it, in real life, eating an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby in a sitting is not “good for your body.” But according to new research commissioned by — surprise! — a UK dessert company, dessert is “good for your family.”
“This study identified that occasionally eating a dessert is producing a blip of happiness which is positively affecting families’ mood, influencing how families are interacting with each other, and is creating happy memories,” explained psychologist Professor Geoffrey Beattie. If this is true, why are big, family holidays, which always include dessert, so fraught with dysfunction? Suspicious. [Daily Mail UK]
