This is Kazuhiro Watanabe. Last week he shattered the world record for tallest mohawk with his massive spike of hair that reaches 3 feet, 8.6 inches above his head. Pretty amazing, right?
Between Kazuhiro’s new record and NASA’s mohawked hottie, this punk rock hairstyle is definitely having a moment (in related news, it might be a good time to buy stock in Aquanet). All this recent ‘hawk talk got us in the mood to ogle some other crazy mohawks, so we found 10 more (literally) hair-raising hairdos, including a couple past record holders.

Here are 15 particularly zany examples, along with the best places to wear them…

Here’s Lady Gaga stepping out of her hotel on her way to attend the Matthew Williamson show at London Fashion Week, looking totally normal. Just kidding! She seems to have inserted her head into one of those spherical flower bouquets that everyone’s obsessed with on Pinterest. I must say that the small portion of her face peeking out from her head garden looks really beautiful, though–her skin is dewy and her makeup is on point. Suddenly I have the urge to stick my head into the vase of daisies on my desk. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man, I miss cassette tapes. I miss their fuzzy sound quality. I miss the weight of them in my hand. I miss organizing them alphabetically in my bottom dresser drawer. I miss waiting by the radio like a lion ready to pounce on the “record” button when my favorite songs came on (confession: I had an entire cassette dedicated to AJ McLean saying “baby”). That’s why I appreciate this awesome cassette tape ring, which is so detailed you could almost rewind it with a pen. Almost. [$15, Pink Mascara]
Funny story: I was planning to do a roundup of all different kinds of comfort foods, but then I asked my Twitter followers for their favorite comfort foods, and pretty much everyone said “MAC AND CHEESE,” and I was like, damn, I guess I need to do a whole post dedicated to cheesy pasta deliciousness. So that’s what I’m doing. Click through for 10 mouthwatering mac and cheese recipes, from classic to gourmet to vegan(!), and stay tuned for more comfort food favorites in the coming weeks…

One of my interior design dreams has always been to have an old school card catalog in my house. I’d love to use it for organizing recipes, jewelry, craft supplies, or just general storage. I could spend hours scouring garage sales to find an antique one, plunk down some serious cash for a reproduction, or better yet, I could craft my own. This tutorial uses IKEA drawers, but you could use any light-wood drawers–just add some wood stain and brass labels and ta-da! You’ve got a fabulous storage space guaranteed to impress your librarian friends! [The Painted Hive]
First Amy Poehler and Will Arnett split up, and now this. It’s not a good week for love, you guys. Since 2006, smitten couples have been decorating Rome’s Ponte Milvio bridge with padlocks to signify their eternal devotion (the craze was sparked by a novel called I Want You), but now the weight of all those love locks is threatening the ancient bridge. As of Monday, police have begun taking bolt cutters to thousands of the romantic symbols, which makes a lot of practical sense but is still kind of tragic to watch. Apparently the padlock-obsessed lovers have taken to expressing their commitment at other nearby landmarks like the railings near the Trevi Fountain, which gives a whole new meaning to the term “lock it down.” [Telegraph]
