An Examination Of The One Direction Boys’ Hairstyle Magic

Maybe you’ve heard of this British pop band One Direction? Perhaps you have a tweenage sister that’s begging you to take her to their concert? As far as we can tell, they’re just latest boy band iteration, this time masterminded by “X-Factor” and “American Idol” svengali Simon Cowell. As such, we’re not particularly interested in listening to their music, which my friend Julieanne refers to as “My Chemical Newsies.” But the hair? Oh geez, we could talk about that travesty all day. 

Baby Elephant Has A Grand Ol’ Time At The Beach

Well, it’s official: I need a baby elephant, specifically one that likes frolicking in the ocean and face-planting in the sand. What’s he doing, anyway? Digging for sand crabs?

We’ve read our fair share of weird missed connections — car accidents, “You were the drunk girl,” or “You’re a cocktail waitress at the Hustler Casino.” But, this one trumps all. Listed in Los Angeles’ “M4W” section and called “I grabbed your boobs on Sunset,” it tells the tale of a man who tripped, tried to grab onto something to find the nearest thing to be a girl’s boobs, and in the process he ripped off her shirt… Keep reading »

Is it true that the real love story on “Mad Men” is actually between Roger Sterling and Don Draper? Perhaps it is, perhaps it is. I know I’d like that to be true, and so does Elisa Kreisinger, who created this awesomely subversive take on the show. “The goal was to tell a story about  two men who once preserved concepts of manhood and masculinity but then found relief and happiness in each other, becoming a threat to the very same patriarchal system on which their power and privilege was based,” writes Elisa on her blog. “Queer Men: Don Loves Roger is a story about Don subverting rather than selling traditional masculinity.” [Pop Culture Pirate]

Dr. Who TARDIS urn photo

“Dr. Who” fans can be an ardent and kooky bunch, even to the grave. So, too, is Kevin “Wash” Pratt, 27, of Arizona, who has been battling an aggressive brain tumor and likely won’t live much longer. In a bizarre yet lovely appeal, his wife and full-time caregiver Tashi King, 25, is asking sci fi-loving crafters on Regretsy.com if anyone can fashion him a TARDIS urn. TARDIS, as “Dr. Who” fans know, is the time machine based on a 1960s-era police box through which the Doctor travels on all his adventures. Keep reading »
