You guys, I need to talk about something. Something I’ve been keeping inside for far too long. I hope you won’t judge me, that you’ll hear me out and offer your support.
I think maybe, just maybe, Channing Tatum has a shot at becoming my Number One Dream Celebrity Boyfriend. That’s right. Ryan Gosling, you’re in trouble. Keep reading »
Makeup aficionado and living doll Venus Palermo has made more than 80 video tutorials, but this one was just too good to pass up. In it, Palermo, in her oddly-lilting broken English, shows viewers how to do their makeup to look like a puppy, complete with big brown puppy eyes. You didn’t know you wanted to look like a puppy, but now that you know how, why not try, right? [YouTube]
I love me some good performance art involving food products. In the tradition of Karen Finley (the performance artist most well known for shoving a yam up her ass on stage), Melati Suryodarmo experimented with butter. In her performance piece called “EXERGIE — Butter Dance,” the Indonesian-born performance artist (who lives and works in Germany) became one with 20 blocks butter. Swaying to beat of drums in her LBD and black stiletto heels, she stomps, slips, falls and rolls in the butter. Then she gets up and does it all over again. It looks both oddly fun and extremely painful, kind of how I look when I roller skate. As for the deeper meaning of this butter dance: “Exergie” is a German word that translates to activate or exercise. Interpretations? [The Huffington Post]
I moved last month, which means a new apartment, a new neighborhood, and most importantly, a new mailman, whom I already have a huge crush on.

As strange as it may sound, this isn’t the first time I’ve had a crush on a civil servant in blue polyester. Here are 10 reasons why I can’t resist a mailman … Keep reading »
Photograher Hayden Wood spent a lot of time as a retoucher and graphic artist, which is probably why his photos of models posed as Barbie and Ken are so eerie. His series, Living Dolls, transforms real people into plastic dolls, sans expression, emotion or proper proportions. [Flavorwire]
