Just because Halloween is over doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy some of the awesome flavors of the season, like caramel apples and vodka. Yep, with a little creativity, clever use of a melon baller, and some gelatin, you can reinvent the traditional caramel apple as a sweet alcoholic treat. Best party food ever. [Buzzfeed]

Beauty Test Drive: Dermalogica Skincare

I have experienced a few transformations in my life that have been so dramatic I wish I had taken before and after pictures. One of those times was when I went to Super Cuts for a trim and the stylist gave me a pixie cut with a rat tail. Another was when I bought my first professionally fitted bra. And the third was when I started using Dermalogica skincare.

It all started one day when my friend Katie and I went out for drinks. She was telling a story when I realized that even under the harsh fluorescent lights of the bar her face looked dewy and flawless. “Oh my god,” I blurted out. “How do you have such perfect skin?!” Keep reading »

Baby Hedgehog Gets Stuck In A Chip Bag, Requires Dramatic 3-Hour Rescue

Pig Rescues Drowning Goat!
You have got to watch this video, you guys. Read More »

Sometimes a hedgehog just wants to crawl into a chip bag and enjoy a snack in private, you know? But when a baby hedgehog in a British seaside town acted on his salty snack impulses, things took a harrowing turn: he became stuck in the chip bag. A shopkeeper nearby heard rustling and saw a tiny hedgehog nose emerge from the bag, but the animal was in a railed off area and couldn’t be reached. Prickles Hedgehog Rescue was called in to handle the delicate extraction, workers cut through the railings, and three and a half hours later, the little guy was saved from his plastic bag dungeon. The hungry, hungry hedgehog–now named Crispian, in honor of his penchant for crisps–was cold and dehydrated but is expected to make a full recovery. Godspeed Crispian, godspeed. [BBC News]

“This one song that I’ve got, I don’t even know what the title would be, it sounds like something John Lennon would be doing in his very psychedelic stage. It starts with these congo or bongo drums carrying this strange rhythmic pattern. And then a tambourine doing off-time hits with it… It’s pretty bizarre. But it’s pretty catchy. Who knows, maybe we’ll stick it on the next Nickelback album.”

–Chad Kroeger reveals to Men’s Health that Nickelback is sitting on a crazy, psychadelic, paradigm-shifting, super experimental–but still catchy!–song in that maybe, just maybe, will make an appearance on the band’s next album. As an avid Nickelback fan, I will be waiting with bated breath. Another major revelation from Chad’s interview? He and fiance Avril Lavigne call each other “Chavril” at home(!), and Avril has taken total control of their wedding plans: “Let’s just say she’s … steering the ship towards what is going to be the most unique wedding that the planet has probably ever seen.” Be still, my Chavril-loving heart!

Life Dream Status: A Trampoline Bridge In Paris

Paris is my favorite city in the world (so original, right?), and before today I didn’t think there was anything that could make it better. But after seeing this conceptual photo of a giant trampoline bridge across the Seine, well, I stand corrected. Dreamed up by architects at Atelier Zündel Cristea, the idea took third place in the “Bridge In Paris” design competition, so unfortunately we won’t be able to bounce over it anytime soon, but maybe someday. Check out another ridiculously awesome photo after the jump!

“I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark. It didn’t feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die. I went to the doctor and he said, ‘I’ll give you some Valium.’

It was just anxiety. Nobody takes care of you mentally. There’s a massive pressure to do what you have to do (and) I was really little … I didn’t like it. But it was work, and I had to do it.”

– Kate Moss describes the effects of the photoshoot with Mark Wahlberg that produced an iconic Calvin Klein ad campaign and helped make her one of the highest paid supermodels in the world. I really admire her for being so honest about this, but I’ve gotta say, this quote makes me incredibly sad.  Keep reading »

World’s Thinnest House Is The Stuff Of Nightmares

IKEA House
Now you can live in a scene from 500 Days of Summer. Read More »

Claustrophobes, hoarders, and people who enjoy stretching their arms without ramming their knuckles into the wall, meet the house of your nightmares. This is the Keret House in Warsaw, Poland; situated between two buildings, it’s only 4-feet across at its widest point, and a panic attack-inducing 28-inches at its narrowest. The terrifying marvel of engineering came to be after Polish architect Jakub Szczesny walked by what he calls an “appealing cushion of air” between two buildings and decided it would be the perfect spot for a home. The building process was plagued by logistical nightmares, but now that’s it’s finally finished, Szczesny says he’s ready to celebrate: “I’m going to get drunk for the first time in my life.” After looking at this photo, I think I’m going to join him.

What about you guys? Does the Keret House freak you out? Would you rather spend the night here or in a spacious haunted mansion? [NYT]

12 Celebs Kickin’ It At The Pumpkin Patch

Did you guys get a chance to go to the pumpkin patch this year? I went with my brother last week, and while we were in the petting zoo he mentioned that my parents may have lied about the circumstances surrounding my bunny’s death when I was in 5th grade, so that kind of colored the whole trip, but that’s beside the point. You know who else loves pumpkin patches? Celebrities! Yep, every October they flock to sunny LA pumpkin patches in droves, cute kids in tow, determined to find the perfect pumpkin. Click through to check out 12 celebs–from Gwen Stefani to Hilary Duff–taking part in this fun fall tradition…

As I’ve mentioned before, I used to work at Starbucks. I learned a lot during my time there, made a lot of friends, and spilled a lot of mocha powder. I also said a lot of things that were totally normal in the context of the job, but could easily be misconstrued as dirty talk or snippets from a serious relationship discussion. Let’s take a look at a few of these classic barista quotes out of context, shall we?

Do you love beer but find it annoying that you have to drink so much of it to build up a nice solid buzz? Meet Armageddon beer, a Scottish concoction that’s 65% alcohol by volume and, according to the company co-founder, “delivers a supersonic-charged explosion and delivers the drinker to Drunksville.” In order to create a beer that’s so high in alcohol, the brewers used a unique freeze fermentation process that results in a beer that’s malty and hoppy, with a “viscous quality.” Still interested? The brew won’t be sold in the United States (most of the beers here are less than 10% alcohol), but you can get yourself a bottle on the Brewmeister website for $65. “Consume this like a fine whiskey,” the company reminds drinkers, and we must agree. Don’t forget that there’s a fine line between Drunksville and Alcohol Poisoning Town. [Oddity Central]
