It’s easy to go bonkers around Halloween when every nine-year-old girl on the street dressed like a two-dollar hooker. I find that unnerving as well. But overly-sexy little girls’ costumes get the lion’s share of the attention where there really is a wide range of inappropriate costumes out there. Take, for instance, this Sexy Osama Bin Laden Costume. Too soon, guys. T-o-o s-o-o-n.
After the jump, 14 more costumes that are not for the easily offended. (Which begs the question, why are you on the Internet anyway?) Keep reading »
Does the skin around your eyes sag and cucumber slices and cold spoons just aren’t doing the trick? Don’t worry, wrinkle face, there’s a crazy, bizarre (and likely bulls**t) gadget for that! The Eye Slack Haruka is basically a vibrator for your eyes which, using its highly technologically advanced buzzing and heating powers, vows to take “years off you while lessening those tell-tell weary signs of age.” The downside is it makes you look like a jackass, but who cares? Now, I’m no scientist (although I did get extra credit in high school chemistry because my lap reports were so artistic), but it seems to me that the vibration would actually further loosen skin. Plus, I thought you needed cold temperatures to tighten skin, not heat. I remain unconvinced that this product will do anything about my puffy, sagging undereyes, but at $132 I hope it would at least give me an orgasm. [Japan Trend Shop via Gizmodo]
Look, we all know the drill when it comes to “miraculous” beauty products like the Eye Slack Haruka: You hand over your dollars, hoping for a visible change and get nothing, nada, bupkis. Here are 13 more beauty products that suck. Avoid them at all costs.
Finally, the whole staff is in the office at the same time so we have a full house in “What Are We Wearing” today. You know, all four of us. Woot woot! Click on to see what we’re wearing today!
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 »
