Remember Dana McGregor, the magical SoCal dude who taught his goats to surf? As if his interspecies surfing lessons weren’t admirable enough, he’s now become Pismo Beach’s
leading only goats rights activist. His focus switched from surfing to activism in the face of a law passed by the city council that bans goats within Pismo city limits. In January, McGregor begged the council to reconsider. “I talked about all the good things the goats are doing in the community,” he said. “They’re our mascots for surfing and stand-up paddleboard camps.” (Was that not how you were expecting that sentence to end? Me neither.) McGregor has received numerous tickets for letting his goats graze within city limits, but he’s undeterred. “I want what’s best for the city too,” he said. “I’m hoping we can work something out.” Meanwhile, I’m wondering if McGregor and I can work something out. Like, a relationship. Because as the old saying goes, “When you find someone who shares your pathological obsession with goats, you should marry them immediately. And then go surfing with your goats to celebrate.” Dana, give me a call. [The Tribune]
Maybe I’m just a sourpuss, but I’m having a really hard time appreciating the new “Feminist Frank” meme, just like I had a hard time appreciating the “Feminist Ryan Gosling” meme. I guess it boils down to this for me: It’s a lot easier to say the right things and look like a feminist than it is to actually do the right things and be a feminist. Keep reading »
Do I really need a reason to post this many photos of Ryan Gosling standing at the press call for his directorial debut, “Lost River,” at the Cannes Film Festival? Dude is like a comet, I can’t be sure when I’m going to see his gorgeous face and muscular arms again, considering he’s been off the grid for awhile now. I need to bask in these Gosling moments, because they are fleeting. I’m sure you understand and support this. Right? BTW, the cast of “Lost River” was there with him — including Christina Hendricks and Matt Smith — but Eva Mendes, his maybe-girlfriend who’s also in the movie, was nowhere to be found. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?! [Photos: Getty Images]
Welp, my girl boner is officially at half-mast. Jake Gyllenhaal shaved his face. While the rest of the world rejoices in the actor’s return to the baby-faced look, I’m gonna miss his urban mountain man vibes. I swear, though, if he chopped off that glorious man bun and is hiding a short ‘do under his beanie, he’s dead to me. [Photos: Splash News]
Well, Mark Zuckerberg, you’ve finally made it: Cosmopolitan has written an article on the pros and cons — sorry, make that bros and cons — of dating a “start-up techie.” You may not have had much success with girls at Harvard, but according to Cosmo, your type is now “trending” as “Hollywood It Girls are snatching up web entrepreneur like they’re the latest iPhone upgrade.” That’s almost as monumental your whole being-worth-$27.8 billion thing!
I don’t usually have much to relate to in Cosmo articles (just can’t get that damn squirter thing to squirt) but this topic is actually something I know a thing or two about. You see, I’ve actually dated two different guys who launched their own start-ups — Ex-Mr. Jessica was one of them and the other sold his startup and is now some muckety-muck at Facebook. I’ve a fair amount of time around startup guys (they are for the most part dudes, although not always), and yeah, despite Jezebel’s snarking, Cosmo is on to something … particularly how a lady will always be number two in a tech dude’s life because “his devotion to his startup rivals Adam Levine’s love for Victoria’s Secret models” and “he’s always working.” Keep reading »
“Michael Fassbender is a man. He just looks at you, and you want to take your clothes off. Let me just say this — once he kissed me on the mouth to say hello, and I almost fainted. The kiss was very platonic on his part. I could smell what he had for breakfast in the morning, you know what I mean? He could eat a pile of shit, and it would smell good on him.”
Sarah Paulson‘s description of Michael Fassbender in the new issue of New York confirms first hand what I always suspected about the “Shame” actor — he is sex on a stick. [Instagram]
Ryan Reynolds has always been an undeniably attractive gentleman, all washboard abs and manly cheekbones. But while I’ve always been able to appreciate him aesthetically, he never really did anything special for my girl boner. UNTIL NOW. I’m sorry, but whoever advised Ryan on his old-timey barkeep meets hipster banjo player meets sexy Amish farmer new look deserves all the awards. I mean, he was a handsome leading man before, but now, with the addition of thick specs, linen vest and a fuzzy face, he is 100 percent DO ME ON THE FLOOR RIGHT NOW material. Approve!

Love is a complicated thing. The most complicated thing, even. Montagues fall in love with Capulets. Americans fall in love with Australians. And no matter how morally depraved and heinous his crimes, there always seems to be some woman who will marry a convicted murderer. Take Leydi Figueroa Uceda, a Peruvian woman who has been engaged to Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch man who allegedly killed teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005, since last year. Not only are these two engaged, but Uceda is now five months’ pregnant with their child. Keep reading »
