The 10 Best Ironic “Tramp Stamps” We’ve Ever Seen

Normally, I’d have a problem calling this kind of tattoo a “tramp stamp” because clearly it’s just another way to slut shame women. Yeah, by now the tattoo has become a cliche but what tattoos haven’t? I think we all know that having a lower back tattoo doesn’t make you a slut. In the case of these tattoos I think the people who got them were being tongue-in-cheek and playing around with the idea of cliche and “tacky” tattoos. Check ‘em out. Read more…

The Saturday Mail & 8 Other Things From Your Childhood That Are Now Extinct

Whenever I come home, whether it be for a break or a bit longer, I’m somehow automatically assigned the job of getting the mail everyday. Secretly, this is my favorite chore to do, and I have no idea why since I don’t get mail at my parents’ house anyway. That said, there is just something exciting about watching the white truck roll by and not knowing what to expect in the mail box. It’s like getting presents and surprises all year around! Heck, it’s Christmas nearly everyday! I have always wished they delivered mail on Sundays too, but since they delivered it the other six days of the week, I kept silent.

However, that has changed. It is an outrage that I can no longer be silent about! The U.S. Postal Service will not  be delivering letter mail on Saturdays starting in August. Only packages. The future children of America will never know what it means to go out on a Saturday afternoon to get the mail! Tragedy.

What other things no longer exist from our childhood? Come, reminisce. Read more…

Your Guide To 2013′s Major Music Festivals

Once all of us get set into these winter blues, pretty much anything that’s accompanied by warm weather is welcomed with open arms. There are tons of things to look forward to, but the most exciting take place outdoors. What better way to break into the warmth with great tunes and huge, partying crowds? The music festivals of 2013 are starting to build up the anticipation, so we wanted to give you a guide to the most popular festivals coming your way:

Coachella: Formally known as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, it takes place each year in Indio, California at Empire Polo Club. This year it takes place on two weekends in April (4/12-4/14 and 4/19-4/21). Festival-goers have to purchase wristbands for each weekend they want to attend. Tickets go on sale on Jan. 29, and the prices range; weekend passes range anywhere from $300 to over $500 (with camping included), and can be purchased on the official Coachella Festival website (click for more information and a detailed description of the lineups for both weekends). Along with the crazy-awesome tunes you’ll be hearing, each year the festival installs unbelievable modern sculptures all over the grounds to incorporate art with music, just don’t climb on them. Read more…

5 Red Flags To Look For In Any New Relationship

Part of the excitement of meeting someone new is the endless possibilities. This could be the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, or the person who can give you an orgasm from oral, or the person who finally understands all of your obscure pop culture references. Getting swept up in the butterflies and the excitement is a blast, but it can also cloud your judgment and lead you to overlook the signs that the person you’re falling for kind of sucks. Let’s preempt part of the relationship where you’re crying over a bottle of alcohol, listening to your favorite Taylor Swift song and wondering where everything went wrong. Beware of anyone who displays any of these traits.

1. Balks at the idea of getting tested. It is the most reasonable idea in the world to want the person you’re having sex with to get tested. This is your health at stake. While most common STIs are curable, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking preventative measures to protect yourself. STIs are not just for “dirty” people, and anyone who thinks that way is not deserving of access to your body. Nor is it a matter of trust. There’s plenty of incentive to lie in this situation, and asking for proof is just pragmatism. Read more…

10 YouTubers Guaranteed To Go Viral In 2013

I’ll admit it; I’m a YouTube addict. It has everything – from makeup tutorials to cats being adorable. It’s completely personal. You can choose whatever you want to watch; just a quick search and you’ll either find exactly what you were hoping for or the strangest thing you have ever seen. It’s amazing. Totally bizarre, but amazing.

While there’s a small set of real power-holders in the YouTube world (think Jenna Marbles, the Shaytards, Ray William Johnson), the site is full of people who are so dedicated to uploading great material despite not having the biggest number of viewers. I’m sure their stuff won’t go unnoticed for too much longer, and I definitely predict 2013 to be the year of these 10 YouTube starsRead more…

Myrlie Evers-Williams Is The First Woman To Deliver Presidential Inaugural Invocation

Myrlie Evers-Williams is the widow of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers. Myrlie recounts meeting her husband and how he brought racial empowerment into her life. She also spoke about how they lived in constant fear because what they were doing at the the time – fighting for equality – could cost them their lives as it had already cost the lives of many.

“In 1963 Medgar Evans was shot to death by a white supremacist named Byron De La Beckwith. Beckwith was arrested and brought to trial but two all-white juries were unable to reach a verdict. Myrlie fought to bring her husband’s killer to justice for three decades and Beckwith was finally arrested again and convicted by a multi-racial jury in 1994.” Read more …

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About The Sundance Film Festival

If you’re like me, you really have a very vague idea of what the Sundance Film Festival is actually like. In my head I pictured a massive amount of hipsters congregating to watch odd films that the average person cannot comprehend, all while taking breaks to toke it up outside and annoy the natives of Park City (while maybe running into a celeb or two). After researching for this list, I’m pretty sure that most of that is still true, but I’ve collected a few tidbits that legitimize the festival’s artistic and social standing a little more (even though I still think the films are a little weird). Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about the Sundance Film Festival. Read more…

Wrangler’s New Moisturizing Jeans Want To Make Your Butt Soft And Smooth

I love trying out new fashion trends but, let’s be honest. I have no idea what to think of this one. Wrangler is launching a new pair of jeans that “moisturize” your butt. The Denim Spa jeans come in three different moisturizing levels- Aloe Vera, Olive Extract, and Smooth Legs, and they claim to help prevent cellulite. The moisturizers supposedly contain “the hydrating properties of natural oils and butters” with such exotic ingredients as monoi de Tahiti? Never heard of that one until now…

This raises so many questions in my mind, and I feel have no answer for them right now. My first question is, how exactly does this “contraption” work? Does the cloth like continuously spray the aloe vera? Also, wouldn’t it feel kinda weird/ be difficult to get your jeans on over your underwear? Read more…

10 New Completely Ridiculous Reality TV Series

Reality TV is notorious for exploiting people’s prejudices. Whether that be cultural stereotypes about people of color, teenagers, people who live in certain parts of the countries or women – reality TV loves to sink to the lowest of the lows. Unfortunately, watching them is just about everyone’s guilty pleasure (including my own). The more ridiculous the better usually and if the people are old enough and cognizant enough to recognize what’s happening then I guess it can’t be so bad. This year is bring us a slew of terribly-terrific reality TV. From “Fat Girl Revenge,” a show about formerly large women seeking vengeance on their haters, to “All My Baby’s Mamas,” a show about Shawty Lo and the 10 women who birthed his 11 children. 2013, guys, it’s going to be a good year. Read more…
