Guy Pastes Himself Into Britney Spears’ “Work B**ch” Video, Awesomeness Ensues

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new role model, Gal Volinez. Gal decided that Britney Spears' iconic "Work B**ch" music video could use a little less Britney and a little more ... him. So he recreated all of Britney's trademark writhing and neck-snapping dance moves, showed a little midriff, and pasted his performance right over the…

The Daily Squee: A Wolf Pup With Hiccups!

Who's afraid of the big, bad wolf? The phrase takes on a thoroughly less menacing tone when the wolf in question is actually tiny and also has an adorable case of the hiccups, as illustrated by this 8-week-old wolf pup at the Wolf Conservation Center in Salem, New York. I'm not afraid of you at…

10 Things You Should Always Buy In Bulk

I've been trying really hard to live a more minimalist lifestyle lately. I'm super choosy about the clothes I buy, have been cutting down on clutter like whoa, and am aiming to live in a super cozy storage container within the next 10 years. Now, that being said, no matter how much I trim dow…

Life After Dating: Compromising On Compromise

Yesterday evening, Nick and I were trying to hang up some pictures on a blank wall in the living room, and things were getting tense. "I think that blue frame should go about a quarter inch to the right." "I think it's fine where it is." "But the bottom edge lines up too perfectly with…

Etsy Spotlight: Let’s Go To The Beach!

I feel like I buy a beach bag every year, but every time warm weather comes around, it's nowhere to be found, and I have to buy another one. Where do all my beach bags go? Do they get sucked into a vortex in the "off-season storage" section of my closet? Do they meet the…

Tim Gunn Wants A Plus-Size Season Of “Project Runway” (And So Do We!)

"I would like to do a season of Project Runway where every model is larger than a size 12." Tim Gunn had a great answer to the question, "What reality show have you not done but wish you could?" in a recent roundtable interview with The Hollwood Reporter. A special season of PR dedicated to designing clothing…

Here Is A Video Of A Fly Going Up A Baby Goat’s Nose

One time, back in college, I was reading a very serious passage of a personal essay to a very serious writing workshop group, and a tiny fly flew up my nose mid-sentence. I started huffing and sneezing furiously before yelling, "I think I feel it crawling into my brain!" and running out of the classroom…

Girl Talk: In Favor Of Following Your Heart

My best friend works at a handmade art market in Portland. She meets a lot of interesting people when she's sitting at her booth selling necklaces -- earth mamas who share recipes for homemade toothpaste, wood carvers who claim very matter-of-factly that they were born on a different planet, chakra healers and aura seers and…

Teacher Who Lived Through Most Recent School Shooting Has A Powerful Message That Needs To Be Shared

Earlier this week, a 15-year-old boy brought an assault rifle, a semi-automatic handgun, and several hundred rounds of ammo to Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Oregon. He shot and killed a 14-year-old classmate, Emilio Hoffman, in the boys' locker room before being cornered by police and taking his own life. The shooter got everything he…

Celine Dion Wants To Hang Out With The “All By Myself” Airport Guy And I’m DYING OF JEALOUSY

Gather round, kids, it's time for a very sad story. Once upon a time, my friend Kyle and I made a whole bunch of Celine Dion lip sync videos. We dressed up in suits and sequins, we recruited our other friends to be extras and camera operators, and we yelled at them if they got…

Compassionate Fashion: 10 Eco-Friendly Summer Shoes From Timberland

I've found that it's surprisingly easy to find clothing and accessories that are up to ethical and sustainable standards, but when it comes to shoes, the pickings are few and far between. There's certainly stylish, handcrafted, responsibly sourced footwear out there -- if you're willing to spend a minimum of $300 on a pair of shoes --…

Frisky Eats: The Healthy, Tasty, Wholly Underrated Turnip

Turnips are by no means a glamorous food. They're a hard root vegetable with a rough, bitter peel that you may only recognize from going to the farmer's market, picking one up, and saying, "Damn, that is one ugly radish." But listen up, people: turnips are SO GOOD when prepared correctly, they're packed full of…

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Mandy Hansen, The First Female Crew Member On “Deadliest Catch”

"Deadliest Catch" is one of my favorite reality shows. I love watching marathons of it when I'm sad or depressed, because nothing makes me feel better about my current life situation than being reminded that it could be worse, and specifically, that I could be in the middle of a 24-hour shift on a tiny…

This Is What Heaven Looks Like

I wasn't even sure I believed in heaven before watching this video, but now I'm absolutely certain it exists, and dearly departed souls are greeted at the pearly gates by an exuberant stampede of baby goats. [Jezebel]…

I Want To Go To There: Bali’s Glass-Bottomed “Shrimp House” Hotel

I would stay at a hotel called "Shrimp House" even if it was a dump, just because I think the name is funny (and the chance to steal a robe emblazoned with the words "Property Of Shrimp House" is too good to pass up), but in this case the funny name accompanies a truly stunning…

Etsy Spotlight: Carved Rose Leather Belts Inspired By Miranda Lambert

I came across this photo of Miranda Lambert in an ad for her new album, Platinum, and I had one of those moments where I was like, "GIVE ME YOUR OUTFIT NOW." Her carved rose corset belt is especially stunning, isn't it? A perfect blend of sexy and country and vintage pin-up. After drooling over this photo for a…

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The Hidden Headband Twist Trick

No matter how many hair tutorials I diligently study or videos I watch, I have yet to master ethereal, half-up, half-down hairstyles like this one. I almost wrote this one off too, assuming the curling and spraying and bobby pinning how-to would prove too complex for me, but I'm glad I scrolled down to see…

Have you ever made a sandwich and thought, "Everything I've ever done in my life pales in comparison to the amazing achievement that is this sandwich"? That's what happened to me yesterday after I made this sandwich. It's vegetarian but packed full of flavor thanks to fresh mozzarella, crispy turnips (which are in season a…

Found: An Eco-Friendly Alternative To Swiffer Sweepers

I am one of those people who doesn't mind messiness as long as I don't see it. This is why many of my drawers are stuffed with receipts and knick knacks, my bathroom cabinets are horrifically disorganized, and the top of my TV has never known the sweet touch of a dust rag. This i…

So Much For Vanity Sizing: In Japan You Can Buy Clothes In Size “Fat”

This is a clothing label produced by a Japanese brand called, fittingly, Fatyo, which has opted to forgo the traditional sizing model of small, medium, large, and extra-large, and instead label clothing with "twitch," "skinny," "fat," and "jumbo." Well, these terms are definitely ... descriptive, if not particularly flattering. Would you ever buy a piece…
