Most of the time, those of us who live in busy urban areas do our best to avoid bumping into or grazing the hands of our fellow city-dwellers.

You know that recurring “Saturday Night Live” skit “The Californians”? It’s one of my faves. This YouTube video of a man — who refers to himself as “The Illusion” — giving himself a sweet bowl cut seems to have jumped right out of that world. “The Illusion” lives in Malibu, California (natch) — “somewhere on… READ MORE »

The secret is out. by now, everybody knows Daft Punk is playing the MTV VMAs this weekend. Yay! That’s great. “Get Lucky” is one of the best songs of the summer. But let’s face it, their mysterious-dudes-in-helmets thing is getting a bit old. We all know that there are two middle aged French dudes under… READ MORE »

Fashion magazines are constantly trying to push the envelope when it comes to edgy, racy content. I get that. But something made me pause when I saw the Autumn Noir spread in the latest issue of Allure magazine. The editorial features models Edita Vilkeviciute and Candice Swanepoel in various stages of undress going at one… READ MORE »

Is it my birthday? No seriously, is it my birthday? How else can you explain someone creating such a perfect masterpiece of all the things I’m interested in? The only thing that’s missing from this extremely comprehensive video of the cast of “Breaking Bad” doing R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” is maybe a basket of kittens… READ MORE »

What you wear out to a night of drinks and dancing can be the difference between having a booty-shaking awesome good time, and winding up scowling miserably at the bar while all your friends are having fun. Wear a dress that’s too tight, or heels that are too high, and you’ll be ready to go… READ MORE »

In the ’80s and early ’90s, Carré Otis was one of the hottest models around. She was regularly cast in shoots with the other supermodels of the day, and she dated a bunch of celebs, including Mickey Rourke (the pair were married for six years and divorced in 1998). But for all the glamour, there was… READ MORE »

Whoa Nelly, we’re not even sure how this is going to go down, but the baby geniuses behind “Law & Order: SVU” have gone and done it again. After their amazing “ripped from the headlines” Chris Brown/Rihanna episode, they’ve now announced they’re going to do a show inspired by both the Trayvon Martin shooting andREAD MORE »

We’ve survived the “Sharknado” and the “Birdemic” — but are we prepared for the newest killer animal on the block? Check out “Squirrels,” a horror movie about — you guessed it — killer squirrels. It’s currently in pre-production and still in the fundraising phase, but director Timur Bekmambetov is hoping we’ll bite. Bekmambetov has directed actually well-known movies… READ MORE »

Ever wonder what could make a shirt — a regular cotton-blend tee — cost more than two months of rent? Us, too.  And it turns out, even the people selling the expensive goods have no idea why they cost as much as they do. Kevin Smith over at Business Insider was curious as to why… READ MORE »

Over the weekend, I picked up a carved bone ring and it hasn’t left my finger in five days. Smooth and subtle, carved bone pieces can add a bit of bohemian style to your general vibe. We’re not suggesting you don accessories made from human hair or bones (which is apparently a thing), but carved… READ MORE »
