Oh My God: Samuel L. Jackson Performs A Slam Poem About “Boy Meets World”

Samuel L. Jackson Performs "Boy Meets World" Slam Poem
Topanga. Topanga. Topanga.

It’s a great day when you wake up and see the words “Samuel L. Jackson performs a slam poem about ‘Boy Meets World’” trending on your social media sites, click on it, and realize it’s not some cruel April Fool’s Joke. This spoken word ode to everyone’s favorite ’90s sitcom, facilitated by Jimmy Fallon, is as real as it fucking gets. Samuel L. Jackson’s delivery is flawless, and the last few lines legit gave me goosebumps. We love you too, Mr. Feeny. Class dismissed. [YouTube]

A Superstitious, Non-Mechanically Inclined Person’s Guide To DIY Car Repair

Car Cleaning Monologue
Deep thoughts I've had while cleaning my car. Read More »

My 13-year-old VW Jetta seems to be entering the phase of an automobile’s life where there’s never not something wrong with it. It’s been in and out of the repair shop pretty much constantly over the past few months, and lately it only starts on the first try when it feels like it. I’m determined to drive this car until it literally disintegrates, which means overlooking a lot of minor problems (like the turn signal clicker that got stuck and clicked nonstop for the entire drive from Oregon to Tennessee) and coming up with DIY solutions for potentially major ones. As someone with zero mechanical aptitude and a fondness for anthropomorphism, I approach car repair much like a witch doctor/zoo veterinarian. Here are some of the affirmation rituals, improvised prayers, and erotic dashboard massages that have become staples of my DIY car repair regimen: Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo

Beauty Test Drive: Klorane Dry Shampoo

Between my super dry scalp and the cold winter weather, I’ve been trying really, really hard to wash my hair less often. This is not a fun goal to have when your hair is very blonde and does not hide oil well. The solution to extending the time between hair washing without having super gross hair? Dry shampoo, of course! But finding the right dry shampoo for me turned out to be more of a “Goldilocks & The Three Bears” situation than I expected. After trying dry shampoos that were too clumpy, too smelly, too powdery, too heavy, and too light, I finally found one that was juuuuuuust right: Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk.

The boutique where I work on weekends has some pretty crazy ear cuffs in our jewelry section, big ol’ things blinged out with rhinestones and crystal feathers. True statement pieces. A couple weeks ago, this little old lady came in. She was a classic southern lady, probably close to 90, decked out in Ferragamo heels, a fur bolero, and bright pink rouge. She picked up one of the ear cuffs and asked, “What is this?” I showed her how to put it on, and she looked in the mirror and gasped, “I look … badass.” “Yes you do!” I said, because she totally did, and she ended up buying it. So rad. I’m not sure I have what it takes to pull off a huge ear cuff like that lady, but I love the look of a dainty ear pin that extends up the ear a bit. This triple star design is so cool. Maybe not badass, but definitely cool. [$18.36, Arajera]

Selling it all on Craigslist

We’ve all done it. Bought a party dress that we just HAD to have only to realize that we have nowhere to wear it. Splurged on a pair of trousers that looked amazing in the dressing room and hideous as soon as we got them home. Done a little retail therapy, came home with a few bags of cheap t-shirts from Forever 21, and absolutely no interest in ever wearing them. But can you estimate just how much all those unworn clothes hanging in your closet and crammed into the nether regions of your dresser drawers might be worth? According to a recent survey, for most women the value is around $550. For clothes that are never worn. Keep reading »

Frisky Eats: 11 Mouthwatering Kebabs For Food-On-A-Stick Enthusiasts

What’s not to love about a kebab? First of all, it’s common knowledge that anything served on a stick is instantly more delicious and fun to eat, but they’re also great for parties, keeping kids’ (or immature adults’) attention at the dinner table, or just combining interesting flavors in a new way. It might be a bit too early to fire up the grill some of these recipes call for, but most ingredients can be oven roasted and/or seared in a pan for similar results. Ready to get cookin’? Click through for 11 kebab recipes — from cilantro lime shrimp to french toast(!) — that had me drooling on my keyboard…

Sienna Miller Says She Sucks At “Selfie Face”

Sienna Miller Selfie Face

“I’m not very good at the selfie face. I can do it for, like, three seconds and then I crack up.”

Ridiculously photogenic Nylon cover girl Sienna Miller revealed a shocking confession in the mag’s latest issue: while she has no trouble posing for the world’s top fashion photographers or striking a pose on the red carpet, she totally fails at the most basic form of cell phone photography: selfies. Her wording does beg a few questions, though. By “selfie face” is she referring to duckface? Or perhaps she’s talking about Very Serious Selfie Face; or “Oh I Didn’t Notice The Camera There Even Though I’m Holding It In My Right Hand” Selfie Face; or Slightly Angled Down To Create Cheekbones Selfie Face? Sienna, you might just need to try a new method. There’s a Selfie Face out there for everyone. [E! Online]

I’m currently in the process of losing some weight. While the experience has been less life-changing than I expected, I’m proud of myself for eating healthier and exercising more often. I feel good. The one downside so far? I’m at the stage of weight loss where my clothes mostly still fit, but they all look kind of…weird. My jeans are now saggy in weird places. My blouses billow in the most unflattering way possible. My bras straps slip and provide no support. Every time I get dressed, I feel awkward and unattractive, and it has nothing to do with my body, just the way my current wardrobe fits my changing body. It’s clearly time for me to update my closet to reflect the new number on the scale. Here are a few tips for anyone else who’s struggling with shopping for clothes during a period of weight loss: Keep reading »

“This Is A Trent Reznor Song” Is An On Point Parody Of Nine Inch Nails

Trent Reznor Song Parody
Are We Sure This Is A Parody?

You guys, I love Trent Reznor and am a huuuuuge Nine Inch Nails fan. Like, I have stopped being friends with people because they said something mean about Trent once at a party when they were drunk and “Capital G” started playing on the host’s iPod shuffle. And despite my fierce loyalty for Trent (or perhaps because of it?), I cannot stop laughing at this amazing NIN parody song/video from comedian Freddy Scott. Everything about it — from the music to the lyrics to the strange, dark video — is absolutely perfect. [Rolling Stone]
