10 Ways To Keep From Going Insane In The Heat

I woke up sweating this morning even with the AC blasting in my room. Hooray! It’s 90+ degrees in NYC today! Maybe you have a stronger constitution than I, but this heat does not work for me, especially since I am prone to face sweat. Yuck! I consulted with other Frisky staffers to brainstorm ways to deal with this insane heat. Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments. Lord knows I could use the help before I go crazy!

In Defense Of Lilith Fair

In 1997, you couldn’t have paid me to go to Lilith Fair. Sarah McLachlan, Paula Cole, the Indigo Girls—all undeniably talented, but not even slightly to my taste. What was up with all the emo singer/songwriters? And, ugh, were they really using an image of a naked woman with a flower growing out of her head as their logo? No, that summer I was too excited to see Hole, Devo, and Beck at Lollapalooza to ever give the hippie dippiness of Lilith Fair a chance. Ditto for every summer until the concept of the all-female music festival fizzled out in 1999.

But then this year, Sarah McLachlan announced a rebooted Lilith Fair. The concept was the same but the lineup was truly off the hook, spanning a huge number of genres, ages, tastes, and aesthetics. For the top 40 lover, there’s Rihanna and Ke$ha. For indie rockers, there’s the Gossip, Metric, and Tegan and Sara. On the R&B tip, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, and Erykah Badu. Not to mention my personal ’80s favorite—The Bangles. Keep reading »

Quotable: Prince Declares The Internet “Completely Over”

“The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give away my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it. The internet’s like MTV. At one time, MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”

—Prince — is he still going by that name? — explains why he has closed his official website and banned iTunes and MySpace from using his music, even as his new album 20TEN comes out [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

8 Suggestions For Jon Gosselin’s First Book

I’m sorry to burden you with bad news just a few hours after you return to the office from the three-day weekend, but alas … Jon Gosselin is writing a book. The tome will be called A Slice of Life: Jon Gosselin’s Story, and it’ll be co-written by Jon’s life coach, Sylvia Lafair. “The book is about having eight kids all at once when he was under the age of 30,” explains Lafair. “It includes some of the lessons that Jon has been learning with helpful hints on how he is working to reframe his relationship with his family including his two brothers and his mother. It also explores how the death of his father affected him.” Keep reading »

The Women Of “The Daily Show” Say It’s Not A Boys’ Club, Jon Stewart Is Not A Sexist Jerk

A few weeks ago, our fellow ladyblog Jezebel.com wrote a post about “The Daily Show,” in which female employees past and present say women correspondents and joke writers aren’t valued as much as men. One past female employee straight-up called it a “boys’ club”; another said the show doesn’t want the jokes and skits to be “too female,” presumably because they might alienate male viewers. When Jezebel penned “The Daily Show’s Woman Problem,” actress/comedian/ex-Playboy model Olivia Munn had just joined the heavily male show and she was the first woman to do so — after Samantha Bee and Kristen Schaal — in several years. Lots of peeps were complaining that “The Daily Show” hires so many new male correspondents, but the most recent female one they hire had Playboy on her resume. All that, when the show is supposed to be so progressive and liberal! It all came to a head last week, when Jon Stewart yelped on air, “Jezebel.com thinks I’m a sexist pr**k!”

Now the women of “The Daily Show” have responded on Comedy Central’s website and they want you to know: they love their job, Jon Stewart is not sexist, and everything is rainbows and bunnies. Portions of their letter, after the jump … Keep reading »

Quotable: How To Make A Vampire Penis

“The color was the biggest thing. It had to look like vampire skin. … The other problem was the sparkle: It had to sparkle in the sunlight. If it didn’t sparkle in the sunlight, the whole idea was dead. … We did have people write in and tell us that Edward was bigger than that.”

–Jon Condit, who (claims to have) designed the “Twilight” dildo, “The Vamp,” explains how he (supposedly) replicated Edward Cullen’s wang [Salon] Keep reading »

Funny New Blog: “Catalog Living” Captions The Absurdity Of Home Catalogs

I am a complete catalog whore. I love the styling of the clothes in the J.Crew catalog, the ramshackle, shabby chic-ness of the Anthropologie catalog, and the total randomness of some of the furniture placements in the CB2 and West Elm catalogs. Someone has taken that obsession a step further and has imagined the lives led by the imaginary people in home catalogs. On the hilarious new blog Catalog Living, comedian/actor/writer Molly Erdman has cast “Gary” and “Elaine” as the two main — but unseen — characters in the absurd life situations implied by home catalog photographs. For example, the caption for the photo above:

Elaine was not amused by Gary’s passive-aggressive response to her request to “garnish the cocktails.”
