A few weeks ago, we reminisced about the reality TV shows we miss, but my yearning for “Temptation Island” to be brought back from the dead has been eased by the knowledge that season two of “Love in the Wild” debuts tonight! The first season had everything I love in a dating competition show, so I’m psyched that it’s back for another round. Here are five reasons you should watch too… Keep reading »
Last night on “Mad Men,” something MAJOR happened, but I am not going to talk about that because I am trying to be respectful of those who do not prioritize TV watching on Sunday night and still haven’t seen the episode. However, I am going to talk about the second major thing that happened on the episode: Sally Draper, my little spirit animal, got her period! Naturally, it happened during the most inconvenient time possible, i.e. on a secret date to the museum with Creepy Neighbor Glen, who debuted a new mustache. Sally was so freaked out that she took a cab all the way home from the city so she could be consoled by mom Betty. Because when a little girl first gets her period, no one else will do but the mom you usually hate.
Sally definitely had it better than poor Sansa Stark, who got her period only a few weeks ago on “Game of Thrones.” Sadly, her own mother is far, far away, and so she had to deal with future mother-in-law Queen Cersei’s version of “womanly wisdom.” Here’s a chart comparing Sally and Sansa’s tumultuous first periods.
Happy National Cheese Day, everyone! What are you doing to celebrate? I’m carving a life-size bust of Alexander Hamilton out of a wheel of Parmesan, but I do that every Monday, so I need to do a little something extra to celebrate this special day. Looking for some inspiration? After the jump, check out five ways to pay homage to the most delightful dairy product… Keep reading »
“Mad Men” may be almost done for the season, but fret not! Here’s a whole mess of “Mad Men”-inspired Barbie dolls to keep you entertained. No, Mattel hasn’t suddenly sanctioned LSD and sex out of wedlock. Artist Michael Williams of MyLifeInPlastic.com dressed each and every one of these old Barbie and Ken dolls (plus a Skipper doll for Sally!) himself. Their accessories are even funnier than the dolls themselves!
We can’t wait to convert the old Barbie Dream House into Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and play. We just have one question … where’s Don?! P.S. If you are a few episodes behind, spoiler alerts ahead. [My Life In Plastic]
Mall retailer Express was really cutting edge in ’90s, so much so that it created a special “slang” guide for its employees, (presumably) so they could fluently converse with any and all manner of customer. But given that this manual was created in the late ’90s, during the era of “Beverly Hills, 90210″ and party rap, there are a lot of ridiculous entries in this list.
Of course, a lot of these terms are still in use — and are actually in the dictionary. Still, it’s funny to see corporate culture try and adapt to the streets. Some definitions, after the jump! Keep reading »
Oh, no, “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” trailer is actually making me miss high school. (Horrible feeling. Don’t go there! Stop that!) Logan Lerman is cheek-pinchingly adorable as Charlie, the wallflower in question; Emma Watson and Amelia’s barely-legal boyfriend Ezra Miller are his misfit pals, Sam and Patrick. Paul Rudd co-stars as an English teacher who is hotter than should be allowed. The movie’s out September 14th, which gives you plenty of time to read the amazing book on which it is based, written by Stephen Chbosky. If you can handle the teen angst, that is. [MTV]
