I’ve always been a late bloomer, so it wasn’t until my late ’20s that it occurred to me to groom my somewhat pronounced Black Irish eyebrows. And it was only natural that my carpet was mostly natural; I did minimal trimming to reign in my coordinating pronounced downtown region. I believe SNL’s Amy Poehler on “Weekend Update” compared this old school size of pubic-hair real estate to a slice of New York City pizza, which would not be altogether off the mark in describing my zone’s unaltered state. My reasons were numerous, though I’d never had to give them. Keep reading »

Hey! Did you watch the last night of the Democratic National Convention and see Barack Obama’s history making acceptance speech? Pretty powerful stuff huh? Well, not wanting to be overshadowed, John McCain woke up this morning and decided to make a little history of his own, by choosing a WOMAN as his running mate. While Geraldine Ferraro was the Democratic nominee for Vice-President alongside Walter Mondale, the Republican party has never had a female VP nominee. So, let’s take a closer look at McCain’s pick — Alaska Governor Sarah Palin — and see whether her record has the potential to swing angry Hillary Clinton supporters across party lines. Keep reading »
Politicians aren’t exactly known for having musical taste, but you would expect the people who throw big events like, I dunno, the Democratic National Convention, would do a better job of picking cool music to introduce some of their most important speakers. That’s why it struck me as an odd choice to have Hillary Clinton walk onto the stage two nights ago to the blaring accompaniment of Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way?”, “You Really Got Me” by The Kinks, and “American Girl” by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Now, I have nothing against the latter two songs (I could take or leave Lenny), but the message of the songs themselves are predictable and a bit on the wimpy side considering the strength of Hillary’s campaign. That’s why we put together our own list of dream songs that should have played background to Hillary’s big moment. That list, plus what we hope Barack Obama will walk out to tonight, after the jump!

Looks We Hated: Joe’s ugly motorcross look; Keith’s bland, ill-fitting, snooze-fest; Stella’s mismatched separates, shockingly devoid of leath-uh.
Last night’s episode of Project Runway featured the much anticipated return of an actually complicated and innovative challenge. The producers may have thought the drag queen episode was a doozy but dressing a bunch of dudes in pleather and feathers is not that mind-bending. On last night’s episode, however, the designers were hauled off to a car warehouse where they were able to pillage Saturn’s warehouses for car parts to use as materials for their next design. This was definitely an opportunity for some of the designers who think they’re super innovative — ahem, Keith, ahem — to finally prove it with something other than swatches of fringe. Not-so-sadly or surprisingly, Keith couldn’t pull it off. And while his was hardly the only piece of crap to walk down the runway, we were pleasantly surprised by many of the designers’ creations. You heard it here first: Leanne is totally the dark horse who is going to win the whole she-bang. Her garment last night impressed even guest judge Rachel Zoe, who once dared to call herself more influential than Vogue‘s Anna Wintour. Keep reading »

The gym I belong to (notice I didn’t say “work out at”) isn’t the kind of place where beefcake-like men make primal-sounding noises as they hoist barbells above their heads. If it were that kind of place, I wouldn’t even be a member, because grunting guys would be in control. Need a five-pound weight? Too bad, a red-faced guy is standing in the way and might attack. With lizards, it’s the same. According to a new study, some lizards do morning and evening push-up routines as a show of their strength and to mark their territory. “As in humans, if an anole can do many of these push-ups, it shows that he is in prime physical condition,” said researcher Terry J. Ord. “These displays of strength help avert actual physical confrontations between male lizards, which can be very fierce and destructive.” So, by faking toughness, lizards (and guys) get in fewer fights. If you’re a total wimp but don’t want people beating up on you, start grunting at the gym. [LiveScience]
