This past weekend, Brit music rag Q held its annual awards fest. There were new popsters (Jessie J) and old legends (Siouxsie Sioux) wandering around, and lots and lots of bad fashion. Let’s take a look, shall we?
If you’re like me, your last attempt at a Do-It-Yourself picture frame involved macaroni and Elmer’s glue during the Reagan years. I think it’s time we gave it another go, don’t you? And luckily for us there’s this new thing called the internet to help us find inspiration. Check out these creative ideas that utilize materials like yarn, branches, and even old gift cards–and save your pasta for dinner…
It’s not like I ever thought the crude triangles for eyes and half moon-shaped mouth were particularly impressive; but upon looking at Ray Villafane’s incredibly lifelike pumpkin carvings, I realize just how lame my own jack-o-lanterns have been. Villafane, who is also a sand artist, makes use of not just the skin of the pumpkin, but the flesh underneath, creating these frighteningly realistic and dynamic faces. He sells his creations for over $400 a pop, an awfully hefty price to pay for art that will rot in a matter of days, but I guess if Halloween is, like, your favorite holiday, it’s worth it? Click on through to see more of his ghoulish gords. Keep reading »
All morning I’ve been listening to Kelly Clarkson’s quite enjoyable new album, Stronger, and found myself laughing aloud at the lyrics to the song ”Einstein. Ahem:
Our love divided by the square root of pride
Multiply your lifeless time
I’m going out of my mind
It was heaven when I finally figured it out alone…
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Indeed, there is no better way to tell a man to shove it than to diminish him with some lyrics containing some seriously fuzzy math. Dumb plus dumb equal you, BOO YA!
In honor of Kelly — and my favorite high school calculus teacher — here are some other bad math moments in music history.
The penis and the balls! Such fun anatomy! You may worship the male anatomy, or maybe you have some junk dangling between your legs, or maybe you just wish you did. Penises, while all unique, are not all created equal. Some are more distinguished than others. Just ask Wesley Warren Jr. whose scrotum weighs 100 pounds. We kid you not. Keep on clicking to see the strangest, weirdest, and most notorious phalli in human history. Let the penis parade begin!
Ninety-year-old designing legend and quirky lady about town, Iris Apfel, cuts such a unique figure, she was offered the opportunity to design not one but two accessories collections last year, for HSN and Alexis Bittar, respectively. Now YOOX.com is getting in on the Apfel love; they’ve commissioned her to create another line of beautiful baubles, priced between $45 for low-end pieces and $2,800 for luxury rhinestone encrusted bracelets, necklaces and rings. But! That’s not all. Iris fanatics can also pick up a piece from her own personal collection — as in, items she’s collected and actually worn over the years — from the site, too. Click through to check out some of our favorite pieces from her personal collection. [Yoox]
It’s a scary world out there for us ladies sometimes. That’s why I love a good horror movie for contained fear and excitement. There’s nothing like sitting down in the darkened theater for two hours of sensory overload and raw adrenaline, only to leave when it’s all done in one piece. It’s like paying $12 for two hours of therapy. Keep reading »
Love hats, but hate hat hair? We so relate. Things get even stickier when you throw freezing winds into the equation. And God knows what persnickety motherf**kers ears can be during the winter.
Enter your savior: headbands and headwraps. Whether your boho, vintage sweetheart, or straight out of a Russian romance novel — we’ve got you covered with these 10 picks.
Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s lookin’ for my own piece of mind; don’t assign me yours.
Michel Gondry’s riveting 2004 film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” has a special place in my heart. It manages to be all at once uplifting, darkly hilarious, and depressing in its aching realism. Jim Carrey (as Joel Barish) is like you’ve never seen him before, a rare, thought-provoking talent who feels, really feels, the deeeeep misery of anyone who has ever fallen madly in love only to have their heart shattered. His girlfriend Clementine, portrayed so effectively by Kate Winslet, is neurotic and impulsive, but you’ll soon learn that there is so much beauty to be found in instability. The disjointed manner of the film sees Clementine through a rainbow of hair colors, ages, and personalities, each more unhinged than the last. First, find out how to channel her cavalier, colorful persona this Halloween, and then check out four other character-driven Halloween costumes. Keep reading »
