Stephen Colbert Has A Great Plan For Sweden’s Twitter Account

Watch Video

So maybe you’ve heard about Sweden’s weird Twitter experiment, wherein they’re allowing perfectly average Swedish citizens to take over the country’s Twitter account for a week at a time. The nation’s current national Twitterer is a woman named Sonja, who seems mildly obsessed with Hitler and Jews and “The Little Mermaid.” Don’t believe us? Check out this Tweet…

Must Haves: 10 Sweet Chambray Pieces

Chambray is like denim’s svelte, attractive cousin — a better clothing companion in the warm months than a pair of bulky jeans. And, chambray translates well as a great fabric for shirts, rompers, skirts and more. It’s breathable, lightweight and looks super good against tan skin. Try these 10 chambray pieces on for size.

So Andrew WK is pretty much the best dude. While I’m not a fan of his music — which consists largely of rock songs about partying –  I can say with absolute certainty that he is genuinely as kind, smart, sweet and enthusiastic as one might hope their favorite Rock Star Who Sings Primarily About Partying might be. It comes as no surprise that Mr. WK would be totally into anything to do with fun, partying and generally having a good time. So of course he’s hosting a panel at this year’s My Little Pony conference.

Which is a real thing.

“Like many at that time, we were hopeful that the Assad regime would be open to a more progressive society. Subsequent to our interview, as the terrible events of the past year and a half unfolded in Syria, it became clear that its priorities and values were completely at odds with those of Vogue. The escalating atrocities in Syria are unconscionable and we deplore the actions of the Assad regime in the strongest possible terms.”

Vogue editor Anna Wintour on the profile the magazine did on Syrian first lady Asma Al-Assad. Assad’s husband Bashar al-Assad is responsible for Syria’s spate of violence against its own citizens. The March 2011 profile happened to coincide with the rise in violence in the country, and was unceremoniously removed from Vogue’s website in April 2012. Author Joan Juliet Buck explained that she chose to profile Assad because, “I think that Vogue is always on the lookout for good-looking first ladies because they’re a combination of power and beauty and elegance. That’s what Vogue is about. And here was this woman who had never given an interview, who was extremely thin and very well-dressed and therefore, qualified to be in Vogue. And they had – Vogue had been trying to get her for quite a long time.” [Fashionista]

A Lamp That’s The Cat’s Meow

Is there anything more sad/cute than a dog or cat with a cone stuck on its head? I think not, which is why I love this lamp from Howkapow, which is the shape of a little doggie–or kitty with a short tail–with a head cone on. They’ve also got a cat lamp, which features a cat body with a regular old lamp shade top, but this one seems a bit more fun, don’t you think? [$185, Howkapow]
