We made our predictions for this season of TLC’s “My Strange Addiction.” We expected a toenail collector (apparently there is going to be a toenail addict this season) or a vinegar drinker (also, a woman who likes to smell Pine Cleaner … that’s close), but a moth ball snorter? No, we did not anticipate that. On this Sunday’s episode we are going to meet Alicia, a 45-year-old hairdresser who lives in Atlanta.

“I love the smell [of moth balls] … I find it irresistible and it’s hard for me to stay away from it for long periods of time … I always keep a stash somewhere so I can get a smell … I am so dependent, I can’t go more than an hour without the scent … I’ll just have to quit cold turkey and keep them away from my children,” she said of her ball habit.

While you can never know for sure what is going to happen at the Grammys (right, Kanye West?). Here are ten things we are definitely looking forward to.

Rihanna lends her vocals — and hopefully daring outfit — on “Princess of China.” Read more…

Every Wes Anderson Slow-Motion Shot, Set To Ja Rule

One of my favorite things about the internet is that it provides a forum for two random and awesome, but completely unrelated things to be brought together into something you had no idea you needed. Think about it — if the internet didn’t exist, the person who made the video above might have thought setting every Wes Anderson slow-motion shot to Ja Rule would be perfect, but they probably wouldn’t have executed it. And I wouldn’t have seen it. And I wouldn’t be as happy as I am right now.

Panic Attacks Explained
Sara Benincasa explains panic attacks in cartoon form. Watch »

Sara Benincasa’s struggle with panic disorder began with childhood anxiety attacks and intensified until, at the age of 21, she developed full-on agoraphobia.  Her fears were so severe she was afraid to leave her own bedroom.  She sank into suicidal depression.  Garbage piled up against the wall as her appetite for food—and life—slipped away.  Finally, one day two college friends contacted Sara’s family out of fear for her safety and state of mind.  Here is an excerpt detailing when Sara’s parents have first been notified that their daughter was dealing with some very real problems.

“Hello?” I said hoarsely.

“Hi, Ra-Ra!” chirped one voice.

“Hey, Ra!” boomed another.

It was my parents. Keep reading »
