Poll: Is This A Stupid Idea?

New Yorker Amy Borkowsky is trying to raise $3 million so she can buy a 30-second ad during this year’s Super Bowl, which she will use to try to find a husband. “Dating is a numbers game,” she said. “I need to reach a large pool of guys.” So far she has only raised $1,121, and a spokesperson for NBC said there are fewer than eight ad spots left for the Feb. 1 game. If Borkowsky does raise the money, do you think this is a genius idea, or has the woman lost her mind? Check her fundraising progress at Keep reading »

“Shimmer” Is “Glitter” All Grown Up

In middle school, when my friends and I first started wearing makeup, glitter was all the rage. We wore glitter eyeshadow, glitter bronzer, glitter lip gloss, glitter nail polish, and glitter anything else we could find.

Now that I’m older, I think glitter makeup makes me look like a grown-up who’s trying really, really hard not to age a day over 14. But I don’t need to be without sparkles — shimmer is totally allowed. Polishes like Dior’s new color Black Sequins look sophisticated, not sophomoric because the little bits of shine are teeny-tiny, whereas with glitter, they’re chunky. See, size really does matter.

We See Chick Flicks: Zack And Miri Make A Porno

Starring Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks, Justin Long
Directed by Kevin Smith

Last night I got to see the much-talked-about movie “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” as part of the CMJ Film Festival. Quite honestly, I was not impressed. Maybe it’s because there has been so much media attention surrounding the movie because of its title and the banning of certain posters. Or maybe my sense of humor just doesn’t mesh well with writer/director Kevin Smith’s. Either way, I thought the story was a big cliche, and Seth Rogen really didn’t need to say “f&*k” so many times without reason. Keep reading »

    All The Pretty Boys

    Starting tomorrow the prettiest of all the pretty boys, Zac Efron, will appear in “High School Musical 3,” the final chapter in the franchise that made him a star. While we were a little turned on by his performance in last year’s “Hairspray,” we just can’t get over how there isn’t a stray hair on his head, and how perfectly groomed his eyebrows are. Was he born this way, or does he have a glam-squad that keeps him beautiful? We’re inclined to think the latter. Pretty boys are nice to look at, but we don’t think we’d date one for fear that people would take one look at us with them and scream, “Mismatch!” Below, some pretty boy archetypes. Keep reading »
