Labor Day weekend is finally upon us. It will be the perfect opportunity to wear all your white clothes before it’s too late. Is anybody doing anything fun, by the way? Amelia tells me she will be swimming with dolphins. Yep, I’m still jealous. Click through to see our last outfits of summer.
In the past three years I’ve gone through as many iPhones. And when I got my latest phone, an iPhone 4 upgrade, I vowed I would hold on to it for as long as possible. In order to keep myself from destroying this phone beyond repair (my weakness seems to be water damage), I equipped it with a shiny new hardshell wooden case that’s added protective bulk to my phone. Let’s hope the water stays away this time! If you’ve got similar phone-to-water destruction problems, perhaps you’d like a new case, too? After the jump, check out nine cool case options to keep your phone in check.
I’ve already lived through a time when it was trendy for men to wear pants so tight that you could see their junk jiggling before your eyes. Luckily, I wasn’t dating in the ’80s and had no idea what “junk” was, so it didn’t affect me directly. If celebrities are accurate predictors of what regular dudes will soon be wearing, prepare yourself to encounter another round of lycra-tastic sexiness this season. Leggings for men are back, bitch! Lil’ Wayne wasn’t embarrassed to rock these skin-tight women’s leopard print jeggings at the VMAs. Nor should he have been. Dare I say he looked kind of hot?

Every so often, there is a piece on the internet that inspires us to get creative, to push the limits of our pop culture knowledge. Buzzfeed’s list of movie titles that make awesome nicknames for your vagina did just that. It seems only fair that we provide a counterpart list of penis nicknames. After the jump, 12 movie titles that would make awesome nicknames for your (or your man’s) penis.
Have the editors of The Daily Mail seen Eliza Dushku wield a stake ? They made the mistake of pissing her off last week when they published a piece lampooning Hayden Panettierefor participating in a convention where fans were charged “the princely sum” of $30 for an autograph. The newspaper speculated that Hayden must be in financial trouble. The story also mentioned a few other stars—like Tom Felton of “Harry Potter” as well as Eliza—as being there, too. And Eliza was not too pleased. She wrote the following letter to the editor:
Dear Sir, I write to you because the piece of your paper that concerns me was anonymous. The piece was 27th August titled “Are times that tough Hayden?” ridiculing and attacking the actor Hayden Panettiere for participating in a Toronto Expo fan gathering where fans are charged money (Oh shock! Oh shame!) in exchange for autographs, signed pictures, and the chance for a bit of face time with their favorite celebrity. My dear editor, how does Hayden’s action differ from what you do for much of the content of your “news” paper? Yes, you will have to tell me where you think you get off attempting to diminish a young actor who is attempting to reach out to fans in one of the only practical ways provided by the entertainment industry, an industry your paper is a part of and largely dependent on. It is particularly shoddy that the author scoffs at Hayden’s lack of “Harry Potter” or “Spiderman” fame while leaving himself unnamed as “Daily Mail Reporter.” Talk about being a parasite! Seriously, Sir, for shame.” [Daily Mail, Bleeding Cool]
After the jump, more stars who’ve written irate letters.
Back in 2008, Courtney Love claimed that someone had stolen Kurt Cobain’s ashes. A possible explanation for the missing remains may be contained in the pages of Nick Strauss’ book, Everybody Loves You When You Are Dead. The music reporter wrote that Courtney contemplated snorting Kurt’s ashes like cocaine. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? She might have pulled a Keith Richards. He admitted to snorting his late father’s ashes in his autobiography. That can’t be right. [Dlisted, Celebrity Mound]
Happy last day of August! Crap, I can’t believe it’s the last day of August! Where did the summer go? We are scrambling to get some last-minute use out of our warm-weather wardrobes, especially Amelia who is sitting on a beach in Jamaica. I’ll admit it, I’m jealous. Click through to check out our ensembles.
The other day, I saw a great shirt with nautically-themed rope detail on it, and almost purchased it, but balked at the last minute. I’m kicking myself now, because the rope detailing gave the blouse an added kick that elevated it from typical to totally outstanding. To ensure that you and I don’t make that mistake again, I’ve sleuthed out 10 great shirts, dresses and accessories with cool rope detailing to give you a little added pull. Check ‘em out after the jump!
Groupies aren’t usually seen as a positive force for women—the word has never exactly been associated with feminism. But groupies strike me as women who are owning their desires and getting what they want. There have been quite a few famous groupies over the years, but they still aren’t celebrated. And yet, as the fantasy of “Almost Famous” shows, we are intrigued. Here, a celebration of the most famous rock groupies and how they have evolved from the gypsy hippie girls of the 1960s to the pink haired Tumblr princesses of today.
I like to think that my Twitter followers are generally amused or enlightened by the 140 characters missives I fire of 5-20 times a day, depending on how funny/lonely I’m feeling. But upon reading the Twitter feed of Courtney Stodden, the now 17-year-old wife (yesterday was her birthday!) of 51-year-old “actor” Doug Hutchison, it is clear I need to step up my game. My tweets are nowhere near as erotic and sensuous, nor filled with as many teasingly placed winky emoticons. For example, just yesterday, Courtney tweeted:
While I lie beneath this sizzling-sun, the popsicle that I am sweetly sucking on begins to melt & drips irresistibly all over my moist body!
See what I mean? Amazing. To rejuvenate my own purple prose, I decided to practice by creating this highly entertaining and, to use another of Courtney’s favorite 50 cent SAT words, invigorating quiz. As you click through this slideshow, you’ll be presented with tweets that were either written by Courtney herself, or by me trying to channel my inner Courtney. Can you tell the difference? The answer for each will be revealed on the slide that follows. Let me know how you did — and write your own Courtney-inspired tweets — in the comments!
