It turns out that J.M. Barrie was ahead of his time. The Scottish novelist and playwright who created the illustrious character, Peter Pan — a boy who refuses to grow up and flies about in a magical land followed by a rag tag group of “lost boys” — has been getting a lot of air time lately. Not because Hollywood is releasing another incarnation of Peter Pan starring Toby Maguire, but because it seems that our generation is filled with Peter Pans. They are armed with Budweisers and the popped collars of Polo shirts instead of the ability to fly and green tights, but their defining characteristics remain the same; they refuse to grow up and they travel in gaggles of Lost Boys.
The sociologist Michael Kimmel recently released a new book called, Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men, describing this generation of men who are delaying adulthood and the traditional markers of settling down and starting a family and choosing instead to “bro it out” in the Hamptons and “take ‘er easy, and if she’s easy, take ‘er twice.” These men actually see “growing up” in the traditional sense — marriage, family, responsibility — as a loss and as forfeiting the greatness of their youth for the mundane ennui of adulthood.

Russell Brand quotes Oscar Wilde as easily as he rocks his ridiculously teased hair. He’s sexy, he’s suave, but, above all, he’s smart and he isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Despite getting flack for openly teasing the Jonas Brothers about their chastity rings and the “retarded cowboy President” Bush at the VMA’s last night, I thought [Me too! -- Editor] Brand stole the show with his off-handed hilarious comments — of course an accent makes everything sound better. Sure, the hole in the ozone is probably caused by the amount of hairspray he uses on his hair-do, but damn the boy is fine and funny! From guyliner to his groovy anti-establishment attitude, who is this one man British invasion named Russell Brand?

I am so ashamed of this hotness, honestly. Last Friday, I was working from home, watching The Today Show, when the famous crooner came on the screen. Mind you, I previously did not enjoy him because I think his music kind of stinks and is too sappy, plus I was a little resentful that he was dating super cool Emily Blunt. But now they’re broken up and I can finally see Buble for the smoking hot dude that he is. Seriously, his face his hot. I truly wish, however, that he would not open his mouth to sing. Keep reading »
There are so many things involved in attraction. From clothing to chemistry, a never-ending list of items can be turn-offs. But sometimes differences are a turn-on, from magnets to men, you know what they say: opposites attract. Still, some things are so repellent, they’re deal breakers.
I truly believe that the number one reason to get a boyfriend is to let yourself go. Not like “let yourself go” in a Britney kind of way – that’s scary – but let yourself go in a “let’s get a little fat together” kind of way. You get to do things in a couple that you don’t get to do when you’re single. Like get popcorn at the movies. Or spend an entire day drinking beer and eating buffalo wings any time between, I don’t know, September and January (football season). Good, wholesome, highly caloric activities that involve a lot of sitting. That’s high quality couple time.
It is with this mentality that I enter most relationships – which is why when I began dating a Manorexic, I quickly recognized the symptoms and got the eff out of there. My Manorexic — let’s call him Craig (as in Jenny) — seemed great. He was smart, handsome, gainfully employed, drank in moderation, and still had both balls – I was sold. Keep reading »
One of the things I like about tennis is how quiet the arena gets when someone good is playing, so that you can hear every somewhat sexual grunt. That’s what I would be paying attention to if I was attending the U.S. Open, going on right now and through this weekend. After the jump, some of the hotties playing this year — a few of whom are already out — and their best stats for those of you who care about, you know, sporting and competition and stuff.

So, I totally HATED the new 90210. [Sigh. We can't agree on everything! -- Editor] Ugh, don’t get me started on the stupid script that just seemed like a combo of every teen genre hit from High School Musical to Gossip Girl. But even sadder than the lighting on Shannen Doherty is the fact that this makes Tori Spelling the smart one for quitting this train wreck. But alas, there’s a light at the end of that dark, dark two hour season premiere special, and that shining star is Ryan Eggold. The West Bev High English teach is sexy, clever, and actually making his lines believable — all that and puppy dog blue eyes makes me hot for teacher! Unlike the totally disposable plot, I can’t get this studly smartypants out of my head. Good news for me (and my best friend Megs), he might be 24 in real life, but he likes the older ladies. When he’s done with Kelly in a couple episodes, we’ll be waiting to fight over him. For now, we hope the producers find a reason to get him to take off his shirt. Keep reading »
Manscaping isn’t just a trend, it’s a bare necessity. While women have been waxing and plucking their eyebrows for ages, gentlemen are finally catching on and it’s become an eye-opening phenomenon. Salons and barbershops across the country are reporting record numbers of guys getting their brows waxed, tweezed, shaped, and shaved. Even Sephora is offering special products to de-unibrow dudes and even enhance their arch — like Gaultier’s $18 Monsieur Groomer gel. But is too much of a good thing, like manscaping, not a good thing at all? Keep reading »
Dang, “What Would You Do With A D–k For A Day?” really was a hot topic huh? Thanks for stopping by gentlemen and cluing us into some fun we might have missed. But the thing really weighing on my mind? Do guys ever consider what they would do with a vagina for a day? I suspected that A) they would either be too uncreative to have actually considered it or B) only considered the sexual aspects, and after discussing the topic with a few of the guys on my IM, guess what? I was right! Keep reading »
Before Johnny Depp was an Oscar-nominated actor and honorary Frenchie, he was in a band called The Kids. He reunited with the band last night at a benefit concert and totally rocks a sweaty t-shirt with the best of them. Keep reading »
I totally did a double-take when I saw Bryan Greenberg in the Obama/Will.I.Am “Yes, We Can” video (watch it, after the jump). While I may have missed him originally on One Tree Hill and October Road, he fully caught my attention as Uma Thurman’s way-younger beau in Prime. And he was so effing adorable trying to impress her that he impressed me into full celebrity crush mode. Look for him in the upcoming Bride Wars, also starring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, the shooting of which has captured by the paparazzi and been in every tabloid for the last few months. Just wish they had caught a few shots of Bryan…
