Dear Ivan Zamotaev,

I’ve always had a thing for men who play accordions, so when you walked onto the “Russia’s Got Talent” stage and debuted your talent–playing a fascinating instrument called an “alcordion”–I was immediately intrigued. And then I found out that the “alcordion” is just an alcoholic accordion, with a bottle of vodka and a glass attached to it so you can pour yourself shots and knock ‘em back without skipping a beat, and I was totally smitten.

Maybe next time you can play me a tune?

xoxo

Help! Do Comfortable High Heels Exist?

Mirror Mirror: High Heels
Kate contemplates really high heels. Read More »

Last week I was wandering the aisles of Nordstrom Rack and found the cutest pair of blue suede Franco Sarto pumps (shown above). When I slipped them on, they fit my feet perfectly and felt shockingly comfortable thanks to a bit of padding in the sole and a relatively low heel, at least compared to the 5-inch monsters I always accidentally buy and then never wear. I thought I had finally hunted down my white whale: a pair of heels that were cute and comfortable, but then I wore them over the weekend, and after about an hour, I wanted to DIE. Seriously, my feet are still aching, and now I’m feeling hopeless about the existence of truly comfortable high heels. So let’s talk this out, shall we? I would love to hear about any brands you love, or random tips for making uncomfortable shoes more comfortable. Do my feet just need to get more accustomed (and by “accustomed” I mean numb) to wearing heels? Are you one of those people who wears high heels every day? How in God’s name do you do it?!

After the jump, check out other Frisky staffers’ picks for most and least comfortable heels, and please (pretty please) share your own in the comments! Keep reading »

Boy Band Orgy: Boyz II Men, New Kids On The Block, And 98 Degrees Are Going On Tour Together

Yes, you read the headline right. No, this is not a drill. Yes, this is real life. No, you’re not dreaming. Three of the most amazing boy bands of yesteryear are joining forces for a summer tour. On yesterday’s episode of the “The View,” the New Kids On The Block made the bombshell announcement that they’ll be touring with fellow dreamy, aging crooners 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. Is this a government experiment to see how much nostalgia the average 30-year-old woman can endure before spontaneously combusting? Most likely. But still, I’ll definitely be in the crowd, screaming my head off and singing along to “Because Of You,” “The Right Stuff,” and “Motownphilly.” Will you? Check out the tourdates after the jump!

I work from home, so I spend a lot of time alone. Eight hours a day, actually, and often more than that. I miss having coworkers (especially because my Frisky coworkers are so freakin’ awesome), but my ADD makes it really hard to get anything–especially writing–done anywhere other than a totally controlled, calm environment. When I tell people about my work schedule, they usually say something like, “I can’t believe you spend all day alone. I would go crazy.”

“Thank you,” I say stoically. “It’s hard sometimes, but it’s really good for me.” And then I go back to debating the finer points of gun control with my quesadilla.

Spending so much time alone led me to the logical conclusion that I’m pretty good at being alone. I mean, not everyone can work all by themselves day after day, right? I figured that made me some kind of professional loner. But recently I realized that maybe there’s more to this whole “being alone” thing than the hours you put into it, and maybe I’m still learning how to truly be alone. Keep reading »

Watch This: Men Find Out What Childbirth Feels Like

Just breathe through it, buddy!

In the latest experiment for their show “Guinea Pigs,” Dutch TV hosts Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno were hooked up to an electro-simulator that mimics the painful contractions women experience during labor. The video is in Dutch, but around the 7-minute mark, it becomes very clear that agony is a universal language. Apparently the guys underwent two hours of simulated contractions, which is significantly less time than the 6-12 hours (and beyond!) that many women spend in labor. Also? I’d imagine the whole process is a bit less harrowing without the whole “pushing a watermelon-sized human out of your crotch” part. Mothers, give yourselves a pat on the back. You deserve it.
