I’m not sure if I’ll actually watch “The Carrie Diaries,” The CW’s upcoming show about “Sex and the City”‘s Carrie Bradshaw and crew as teenagers, but I am officially impressed with the styling on the show. This first photo of AnnaSophia Robb in costume as young Carrie is pretty damn close to how I imagine the world’s highest paid and most self-absorbed columnist would have looked in her early years. (In other words, not that different from how she looked in her thirties.) [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Walking into a bookstore can be overwhelming. And heaven forfend you go onto Amazon! There are so many books out there that it makes you wonder why they’re always saying the publishing industry is in its death throes. If you know you’re looking for a copy of The Hunger Games, then you’re golden, but lots of readers just like to browse for something good to read. That is, until we start ripping our hair out.
I conferred with The Frisky staff and came up with a list of books we think every woman needs to read in her lifetime. We’ve got novels. We’ve got self-help. We’ve got cookbooks. We’ve got academic-y stuff. And we’ve all been changed for the better and felt a little less alone in life, thanks to this list right here… Keep reading »
I’m not so into recapping shows, but let me just say this of last night’s “Mad Men” season five premiere: I liked it! And what’s more, I liked Megan, Don’s former secretary and the new Mrs. Draper. Don’s still f**ked in the head, of course, but Megan has a certain way with him that I have a newfound appreciation for. Or maybe I was just intrigued by that vaguely sadomasochistic sex scene at the end. Anyway, the highlight of the episode for me — besides deciding that, henceforth, I shall refer to farting as “going to the bean ballet” — was Megan’s rendition of the French tune “Zou Bisou Bisou” at Don’s surprise birthday party. (The clip above is a little crappy, but I’m working on getting a better version.) Enjoy!
Just wait til he gets drunk on a pitcher of margaritas and starts whipping his tiny sombrero around. It’s really a sight. [CutestLife]
Anybody who’s ever owned a cat knows that they choose you as much as you choose them. And that’s what makes the story of stray cat Bobcat and his owner James all the more remarkable. James, a street musician, takes Bobcat with him everywhere that he goes, and Bobcat happily seems to comply, even submitting to wearing a harness and walking around the streets of London with James on his daily jaunts. As James often reiterates to passerby, if he didn’t want to be there, he wouldn’t, but it’s clear that cat and man have a strong bond. [Laughing Squid]
Hi. Hello. I’ve just discovered that there are people in the world who are competitive pizza tossers. And they compete in the World Pizza Games, which are like the Olympics for pizza performers. And there are categories like Fastest Dough, Longest Spin, Fastest Box Folding and Dough Freestyle Acrobatics. This is Kzuya Akogi who won the Gold Medal in Dough Freestyle Acrobatics at the 2012 World Pizza Games. His “tossing” is blowing my mind. I need to learn how to do Pizza Dough Freestyle Acrobatics immediately. I wonder if the training schedule is rigorous. I have so much to learn. I think I should start by getting a huge bag of flour.
