Things That Actually Exist: Sexy Bowling Shoes

Yep, you’re looking at a pair of high-heeled bowling shoes. Unfortunately they’re not recommended for actual bowling, but you can definitely wear them to make a grand entrance at the bowling alley before changing into a pair of normal, sweaty bowling shoes to roll a ball down the lane. However your game pans out, you’ll get a perfect score for glamour. [Laughing Squid]

So apparently Myspace is trying to reinvent itself. Again. And while its redesign is apparently quite beautiful and it’s got Justin Timberlake as a mascot, I’m going to wait to break out the champagne. To me, Myspace is a time capsule, in both a literal sense (have you guys ever gone back to look at your pages? Oh sweet mercy is that a weird experience) and a figurative one: its rise and fall encapsulated so much about the people who used it and the world we lived in. These latest whispers about Myspace coming back from the dead got me thinking about the site and all the useful (and not-so-useful) things we learned during those fleeting years we spent perfecting our “About Me” sections and fielding messages from sexual predators. For example… Keep reading »

12 Celebs Who Never Seem To Age (Or Are Actively Aging In Reverse)

Watching the Emmys this weekend, I was totally blown away by how amazing Julianna Margulies looked. “She hasn’t aged a day in 10 years!” I gasped, and then I saw Edie Falco, and thought the same thing, and then Nicole Kidman showed up, and I realized a photo slideshow was in order. Click through to check out side-by-side pics of 12 celebs who, through the magic of sunscreen or Botox or the blood of virgins, look exactly the same (or younger!) as they did a decade ago…

"This is not the straight firemen's brotherhood."

On November 6th, the citizens of Maine will vote on a ballot measure that aims to legalize gay marriage. Polls are hinting that it’s going to be a close contest, but this new campaign ad, featuring four volunteer firefighters–three straight, one gay–presents a powerful message in favor of marriage equality. “When we clear a call, I get to go home to my wife,” says firefighter Eric Humphrey. “The guys I work with should be able to marry the person they love.” Major props to these guys for speaking out to support the civil rights of their friends and coworkers. Hopefully their words will strike a chord with voters. [The Advocate]

Way back in the day, my grandma had a crocheted afghan in her living room that looked exactly like these pants. I used to wrap myself up in it on her cozy couch to watch Nickelodeon while she plied me for family gossip with treats from the candy drawer. I had no idea that one day someone would take that blanket, sew it in the vague shape of pants, and sell it for 300 bucks at Neiman Marcus. [$297, Neiman Marcus]

Anne Hathaway recently landed at LAX rocking this amaaazing outfit, and now I’m obsessed with recreating it. From the wedge sneakers and skinny jeans to the trench coat and leopard scarf, it’s the perfect mix of edgy and chic, trendy and classic. Go on with your bad self, Anne. If you need me, I’ll be scouring eBay for a khaki trench of my own. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

We Want To Go To There: Dublin’s Urban Playground

For a project called “The City Is A Playground,” artist and self-described “urban hacktivist” Florian Rivière used hot pink duct tape to create playground games around the city of Dublin. He improvised mazes and hopscotch squares and race tracks in all kinds of unexpected places, but unfortunately for those of us who would love to get some quality playtime in, the works are not exactly user-friendly: a maze leads into an office building, race lanes stop abruptly at a brick wall, and as you can see, anyone hoping to partake in this game of hopscotch would be stopped by an imposing metal fence. Is it a powerful commentary on the rigidity of adult life in the city? Yes. Does it also have me itching to buy a bucket of sidewalk chalk and play some fucking hopscotch? Definitely. [Neatorama]
