Swofties Have More Fun

What do you think a “swofty” is? Hint: it’s not a new Dairy Queen dessert or some dirty sexual term. OK, I’ll tell you. A “swofty” is the new term for single women over 50 who are more likely to be out at a nightclub, flirting, than at home knitting their grandchildren sweaters. According to a new study, “swofties” are on the rise. The results show that the more than 600,000 mature females in the U.K. who are spinsters, widows or divorcees are happier than ever. More than 50 percent of the women surveyed say that they are content to live by themselves, 17 percent said they were dating, 20 percent reported having a rocking social life, and one-fifth are regulars on Facebook and Twitter. Sounds like old is the new young. Get ready to go clubbing with granny! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

10 Extremely Odd Celebrity Look-Alikes

I was suffering through a dreary, winter evening when I heard my roommate laughing hysterically in the other room. “What?” I shouted, hoping for some excitement. “Snooki from ‘Jersey Shore’ looks exactly like Christina Aguilera during her Dirrty phase.” OMG, so freaking dead-on. It inspired me to find some other hilarious celebrity resemblances. For your entertainment during the dog days of winter, some more really odd celebrity look-alikes. It’s OK if you laugh. In fact … you’d better laugh.

Brangelina And Other Celebs Donating Mega-Bucks To Haiti Relief Effort

Aid groups from around the world are working tirelessly—racing against the clock—to rescue survivors, provide medical relief, food, and water after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti on Tuesday. It is still unclear what the death toll will be (it’s estimated that it could be hundreds of thousands) or how severe the damage is, but reports and horrifying images from the ground indicate major destruction and chaos everywhere. Obama promised $100 million in immediate relief and even deployed 3,500 US Army members to assist, our most heroic relief effort since the tsunami in Indonesia. But communication is still limited and people are still searching for loved ones, like “Heroes” cast member and Haitian native Jimmy Jean-Louis. He is trying to find his parents after he learned that the house he grew up in collapsed, killing several relatives. So sad.

To help, many celebs have stepped up to offer big bucks for the cause. Keep reading »

Play Chatroulette, NOW!

Listen up, people! I think I just discovered the Holy Grail of all internet fun. A friend of mine told me about this site called Chatroulette.com. It is literally a virtual, social roulette game. You log on (you need a web cam of some sort) and the site connects you randomly with another person in the world for a video chat. You can actually see and hear this person while you IM with them!! The future is here! For my first round, I was connected with Chad, an IT guy who works for Chatroulette. (He was doing some routine site checks.) I asked him what he wants the Friskyverse to know about the site. He replied, “That it’s fun!” No s**t, Chad. Too bad he was hot and I realized that I haven’t brushed my hair yet today and am still wearing my gym clothes. Bummer. [How come the first time I try it, I get a guy jerking off? Must be a fluke. Otherwise, totes SFW! — Editor] When I spun the virtual wheel again, I was connected to Anna, a 17-year-old girl hanging out with her cat. Whoever came up with this idea is a freaking genius. Try it now before the rest of the world catches on! Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Placing A Personal Ad (Almost) Ruined My Will To Date

When I was offered the opportunity to be one of “New York’s Most Eligible Bachelorettes” in a major local magazine, I laughed out loud. “There’s no way I will ever meet a guy that way,” I complained to my friends. “Why even bother? I already meet tons of guys. They just all suck. Plus, I’m happy alone.” After much coaxing, I decided my friends were right. I couldn’t turn down a professional photo shoot or an opportunity to get as close as I ever would to my fantasy of becoming the next “Bachelorette.” If only I liked to wear bikinis and go bungee-jumping, maybe ABC would consider me for the series.

Behold The Music Flesh Map

Fleshmap is a series of studies done by artists dedicated to an inquiry into human desire and its expression through touch, feel, and sound. Yep—it’s a little bit of crazy art science for ya. My favorite study on the site is about music genres and body parts. It maps out the body parts invoked most often in songs of different genres. Notice how eyes are number one in all genres—with the exceptions of hip-hop, where it’s all about booty, and gospel and blues, where hands rule. [Fleshmap.com] Keep reading »

Judging “American Idol” Guest Judge Victoria Beckham


Welcome all, to “American Idol” season nine. Will this season be the death rattle of “Idol” or a spectacular rebirth? It’s the first season after Paula-gate and the last season before Simon quits. For the auditions shows, Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Joe Jonas, Neil Patrick Harris, and Katy Perry are stepping in as guest judges—all leading up to Ellen DeGeneres taking Paula’s abandoned chair. We are all on pins and needles waiting to find out if the new mix of judges will be pitch-perfect or pure cacophony. Last night the show premiered in Beantown with the usual mix of talentless freakazoids, manipulative human-interest contestants, and the Hollywood-bound few. Eh … if you’ve seen auditions once, you’ve seen them all. But I was less interested in the contestants and more interested in the bobblehead known as Posh Spice, who said judging “Idol” was a “dream come true.” The producers tried to edit Posh to be the kind and compassionate guest judge, but all I saw was weird robot bug eyes and a blank stare. Especially with that crazy headscarf on. Did anyone else notice how she just repeated whatever the other judges said? Plus, she swiveled in her chair the whole time. She must have been too hungry and self-absorbed to come up with original critiques. Keep reading »

What Ever Happened To The Kids From “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”?

Oompah-Loompa, Doompity Doo. I’ve got an exciting update for you! If you weren’t obsessed with “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”—the 1971 version, not the Tim Burton remake—when you were a kid, then you probably weren’t born yet or maybe you lived in a remote cave. Weird kids, candy galore, a magical factory with little singing orange men? What’s not to like? I drove my parents crazy, watching the VHS tape no less than four times a week, learning all of the songs. I still do a great rendition of Veruca Salt’s “I Want the World” British accent and all. I begged my parents for lick-able wallpaper (anyone know what a “snosberry” is?), and tried to chew as much gum as Violet Beauregarde—I hid Hubba Bubba under my bed so I could pop a piece in before bed. I’m not ashamed to admit that I still watch the movie about once a year just to stay young at heart. I’m waiting for the film to lose its appeal, but so far, it hasn’t. I mean … there’s a chocolate freaking river! That’s why I was so psyched to see that Celebuzz tracked down the kids from the film. Aren’t you just dying to know where their Golden Tickets led them?

Anyone Wanna Join These Swingers In Bed?


I don’t know a whole lot about the wild world of swingers, but I’m thinking that Lyn and Linda from upstate South Carolina (is that a real geographical location?) aren’t getting too much action from their personal video ad. These good-looking swingers with fashionable feathered hair are looking for fun, friendly people willing to join them in bed. Gay, straight, bi, newcomers—they want anyone to join them. But they’re totally not desperate. And you can tell by their enthusiastic delivery that they’re just about as fun as it gets in the sack. Any takers? [BuzzFeed]
