Happy Cinco De Mayo! I can’t wait to go home and make a margarita, try my hand at this bean dip recipe I’ve been curious about, and then sit down to watch Y Tu Mama Tambien. Actually, I probably won’t, because Cinco De Mayo is really about margarita-drinking-togetherness, but to give myself, and you, a taste, here are the film’s stars, Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, in all their glory. Incidentally, both of them are about to be daddies. Felicitaciones! Keep reading »
This Sunday night, Ira Glass is coming back to my place…through my cable provider. From behind the desk of his NPR radio show, Glass sweet talked himself and his stories into our hearts. Now with his highly anticipated Showtime series about to start its second season, he is the face of modern American mythology and revolutionary reality television. When he took to the stage last night in New York City to boldly go where no man had gone before — doing This American Life live and via national simulcast, the sexy storyteller seduced the audience with his casual charm, quick wit, and signature tight grey suit. Our Emily and I giggled and cheered like he was a Beatle along with the gaggle of other horn-rimmed-glasses-groupies. And from what we saw of the show, the new season looks as smart and as good as the man himself! Keep reading »
A manâ€™s hair says so much about him — especially if heâ€™s bold enough to be bald. But since every lady loves to run their hands through Greek god-like ringlets (right?), some men in New York set out to see if a perm would have the same power. The gentlemen were simply looking to spice up their look, but thatâ€™s quite a risky move considering the permâ€™s potential resemblance to the jheri-curl (see the video, after the jump). Still, Todd Lamb, an author and humorist from Brooklyn, convinced 15 of his friends to do up their ‘do and he compiled the results in a book called Yo, Check The Perm! Will this guy trend catch on? Perhaps you hope it doesnâ€™t, but after seeing the proof in these pages, the perm might be ready to rise again!

Earlier we posted a poll about the hooker screwing and killing in Grand Theft Auto IV. I wasn’t entirely sure how I felt about this game, so I haven’t voted yet, and instead asked the guys on my IM why I shouldn’t be horribly offended by them having virtual sex for money with the woman to the left, and then blasting her in the head with a semi-automatic. Their compelling answers, after the jump. Keep reading »
That hottie Cedric Diggory is going to be in another movie! Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire star Robert Pattinson stars in the hotly anticipated vampire movie, Twilight, based on a series of books by some goth writer. Apparently the story is about some teenage girl who risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire! Kind of like our Simcha and her tween crush on The Count. Keep reading »
I once met Dave Annable. A publicist was coming to the office where I worked for a meeting, and he came with her and enthusiastically introduced himself. I thought he was another publicist. Oops. Now Dave plays Justin Walker on Brothers and Sisters, and he has portrayed some intense stuff, drug addiction and drug withdrawal being the most notable. I heart his scruff. Keep reading »
Some young man wrote Debonair Magazine about graduating from college and not being able to get any ladies in the real world.
I have been out of school for about 18 months now and I’m missing the fraternity party days and how it easy was to hook up with a girl. How do you recommend picking up a girl in a bar? I feel that women that go out often are all so full of themselves, only want a free drink, and just don`t respond to anyone unless they`re great looking. — Disgruntled
Some of the advice given is as abominable as the “problem.” After the jump is the worst of it. Keep reading »
Dancing With The Stars is literally the only reality TV show I don’t watch. The only place I don’t want to watch D-listers in on a dance show. Don’t ask me why. But I may have to change my tune now that I have been alerted to the steamy presence of Jason Taylor on this season. He’s a football player on the Miami Dolphins, but by the looks of the clip after the jump, he’s as graceful as a swan on dance floor. Football is boring, Jason, maybe you should think about turning in your cleets for tap shoes. [ESPN.com] Keep reading »
I was at a bar this weekend, hanging out with some friends, when a guy came over to me. He began by telling me he was thinking about opening a bar, then preceded to ask me tons of questions, like what I thought made a successful place and whether having Guitar Hero would be a draw. He kept pressing me to answer questions that seemed a little lame, considering they were all hypothetical and he was clearly not going to be opening a bar, um, ever. It felt like an inquisition and almost seemed like he was using a technique from a book he had read (ask her questions so she thinks you’re interested!). Anyway, we’d love to hear some stories about the worst techniques ever used on you, because they’re guaranteed to make us all laugh, and we all need a good laugh on Mondays. Share yours in the comments. Keep reading »
I finally saw Atonement this weekend. I know, I’m really behind. It is really quite phenomenal how attractive James McAvoy is in that movie. The whole scene with him and Keira Knightly in the library was like a sexy version of Clue. You know — Mr. McAvoy and Ms. Knightly, in the library, with a step-ladder. Sexy. Keep reading »
