I moved into a new apartment a few weeks ago, which means I got a cheap introductory offer on cable TV, which means I now spend approximately 90 percent of my free time watching “House Hunters International” on HGTV. Do you guys watch this show? Basically it follows “house hunters” (usually a young-ish couple) who are relocating to a different country as they tour three properties and decide which one to buy. Sounds pretty innocuous, right? Not so much. I end up yelling at the TV at least five times per episode because the home buyers are always so entitled and clueless. Here’s a conversation I imagine having with the couple in a typical episode: Keep reading »
I find that if you like one of David Lynch’s films, you really like all of them. His repertoire is interesting in that way — I don’t think there’s anyone who likes, say, “Mulholland Drive” but not “Blue Velvet,” or vice versa. I’m a member of the happily bizarre demographic that enjoys and embraces all things Lynchian. He’s been freaking me out for nearly a decade, ever since I watched “Eraserhead,” and paused the movie to cry a little midway through. Anyway, I digress. The maestro of all things subtly grotesque and foreboding is at it again with a skin-crawling new music video for the album he released last year, Crazy Clown Time. If you aren’t accustomed to Lynch’s particular brand of edgy, nausea-inducing eccentricity, then steer far, far away, because this video is not the ideal opportunity to give it a try. It’s also definitely not safe for work. Any work. Ever.
Salma Hayek may have recently admitted that she was acne-ridden and depressed for much of her 20s, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at her these days. The woman is the very definition of a classic Hollywood glamour girl and she happens to be very dedicated to doing charity and good works, too. She and her multi-billionaire husband, Henri Francois Pinault, attend lots of fashion shows together (it’s very cute!) and seem to provide a very loving home for their daughter Valentina. All in all, Salma turned out pretty damn awesome, despite — or maybe because of — her early-20s trouble. And we love her voluptuous curves and the way she really fills out a fancy gown. After the jump, 1o of our all-time favorite Salma styles.
