To celebrate the release of the hotly anticipated “Great Gatsby” remake, this week’s OMGILYH (wow, that’s one un-catchy acronym, huh?) hairstyle just had to be vintage-inspired. And it really doesn’t get more Gatsby-esque than the classic 1920′s finger wave, modeled here by lovely blogger Super Kawaii Mama. I like how her version is a little softer than the original incarnation, perfect for a date night or, you know, a movie premiere. Check out her video tutorial to get the look for yourself!

This video has been around for a few years, but it’s making the rounds again and I think it’s always worth watching–and thinking about. The premise? An interviewer asks a number of straight people for their thoughts on the whole “Do gay people choose to be gay?” debate, and then follows up with a version of the question gay people get asked all the damn time: “When did you choose to be straight?” Reactions range from surprised to confused to genuinely thoughtful. A few people even change their answers entirely. Hit play to check it out. [YouTube via Upworthy]

Which rock star shared a room with David Lynch in Boston? Which former child star was brave enough to shack up with Lindsay Lohan? Read on to find out…
