Don’t Call It A Comeback: 12 Things We’d Like To See Revived

We were ecstatic to learn that Miss Leather and Lace herself, Stevie Nicks, would be coming out with a new record. The new album is due out sometime next spring and is expected to include collaborations with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Mick Fleetwood, among others. And, she says, we should watch out for a new Fleetwood Mac record too: “Eventually, there will be another Fleetwood Mac record and another tour,” Nicks told The New York Daily News. “But this record is my moment. All next year, it’s going to be this. This is now my turn.” It’s her groove.

News of Stevie’s new record got us thinking about what other old artists and trends we’d like to see revived. After the jump, other comebacks we hope happen soon. Tell us: Who or what do you hope makes a triumphant return? Keep reading »

7 Things To Do While Mercury Is In Retrograde

Guys, things are bad — Mercury has been in retrograde since August 20 and our junk is all messed up. The sheer destructive power of Mercury’s seeming backwards motion can throw everything into a tizzy, especially in the communication department. Four times a year, when Mercury makes its reverse move (for a terminally long three-week period), it seems as though relationships spontaneously combust, fights happen at the drop of the hat, and your emails and phone calls stop making sense.

There’s good news though — Mercury is supposed to exit retrograde on September 12. We’re in the home stretch! And if you can make it through the next few days without murdering your boyfriend or alienating your best friend, you’re golden! That’s why we’ve created a handy list of things you can do to get through this crappy time. And tell us how has Mercury in retrograde been mucking up your life? Keep reading »

Old-School Wednesdays: “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It”

It’s funny the little things we remember. Like, how I stayed home one day to memorize the lyrics to this song (I still know all of them). Or how I can’t watch this video for R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” without thinking about how my friend Rachel said she was going to marry the boy in the video one day. The adorable boy in the video, it turns out (thanks Google!), is Noah Ray, a scrawny kid from Athens, Georgia, who happened to be plucked from obscurity and made a video star. Sadly, his R.E.M. affiliation ended up kind of ruining his life. He was teased so mercilessly for being in the video that he dropped out of high school, and now fronts his own terribly named band, Music Hates You. So no, Rachel never did marry him. Keep reading »

Over the weekend we were dismayed to learn that cellist Mike Edwards from ’70s rock band Electric Light Orchestra passed away. How did he die? Well, he was crushed to death by a 1000 lb. bale of hay. The giant hay bale careened down a hill, crashed through a fence and slammed right into Edwards’ oncoming car, killing him instantly.

Edwards death-by-hay is sad and bizarre — just like these other totally strange celebrity deaths.

Crimes Against Blondeness: The Worst “ANTM” Blonde-overs Ever!

Each season of “America’s Next Top Model,” we watch in excited anticipation and suspense. No, not for the “ANTM” winner to be crowned (total snore) — but for the vaunted MAKEOVER episode. We love watching weaves being torn out, heads being shaved, and girls crying over their lost locks. Most of the time the girls look better than when they started, but sometimes Tyra and her minions go overboard — especially when it comes to blondes.

Tonight marks the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 14, so we’ve assembled a collection of “ANTM”‘s blonde ambition — beautiful girls who, like Cycle 12′s Alison (pictured), were bleached into submission.

Quotable: Sarah Palin Made Meghan McCain Cry

“My initial reaction was ‘Who the hell is Sarah Palin?’ like everybody else. Like the rest of the country, I had no idea who she was, and I was actually crying on the bus on the way to the rally.”

Nobody Likes Seeing Don Draper Cry

When Don Draper has a sad, the whole world has a sad. Witness the blog devoted to Don Draper’s miseries, where the lonely “Mad Men” character cries about kittens, cigarettes and Christina Hendricks’ marriage to a guy that is not him. [Sad Don Draper] Keep reading »
