    Sure, we loved listening to Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” and Rihanna’s “Disturbia,” but there were a lot of great albums that didn’t get any radio airtime or Grammy nominations. Below, some of my favorite albums that were released this year. Keep reading »

    Hot New Trend: Horny Bisexual Twins!

    Everywhere I turn, there’s a new set of twins, with four big boobs, two heightened libidos, and a camera. 2008 was all about two things: bisexuality and twins. Tila Tequila made a name for herself as a bisexual woman looking for love, while Lindsay Lohan came out and met the Ronson of her dreams. And everyone had twins this year — Brangelina, J. Lo, Nancy Grace, the list goes on. But in 2009, being bisexual and having twins isn’t going to get headlines — to be a STAR, you’ll need to be BOTH. Hugh Hefner just added two new Playmates to his mansion — twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon. This scenario makes my brain and my tummy hurt, because I can’t help but wonder if they get it on with Hef TOGETHER. Likewise, the new season of “A Shot At Love” is actually a “Double Shot” and features the “Ikki” twins, Rikki and Vikki, who are trying to find a perfect match amongst a pool of sexy beefcakes and hot lesbians. Meanwhile, at New York club The Box, the hottest featured act is the Porcelain TwinZ, who put on a fetish-burlesque show. What’s next? Mary-Kate and Ashley doing porn? “Sweet Valley High” erotica?

    What’s Your Favorite Holiday Tradition?

    In about two weeks, I’ll go home to Ohio for Christmas. In addition to the usual traditions — stockings on the mantel, Christmas Eve dinner with all my cousins, monkey bread for breakfast on Christmas morning — my sisters, cousins, and I will watch National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation” with my grandmother, just as we do every year. It’s a strange tradition dating back at least 10 years, and it’s one of my favorites.

    In the comments, tell us about your favorite holiday tradition! Keep reading »

    Sexist Advertising Alert: Does This Suit Look Good With The Model I Just Murdered?

    Thanks to Feministe for pointing out 2008′s Most Sexist Advertisement — a print ad for Duncan Quinn suits which features a nicely dressed gentleman strangling a barely clothed model! Because nothing says debonair like chokin’ a bitch. Keep reading »

    Would You Dump Someone Over A Bad Gift?

    According to a new study, a third of all women “view an inadequate Christmas gift as a relationship deal-breaker.” Women sited cooking utensils, cleaning products, fake jewelry, and, mysteriously, “a tape dispenser” as bad gift choices. Not surprisingly, lame gifts followed by more disappointments (reservations at the wrong restaurant, perhaps?) led to more breakups, the survey found. Interestingly, smart women are particularly hard to please: “highly educated women — especially those in the legal field — are particularly demanding.” Keep reading »

    Quickies!: The “Gossip Girl” Spin-Off Already Sucks

  • The “Gossip Girl” spin-off is supposedly going to surround the early romance between Rufus and Lily and will be very, very, very boring. [Just Jared]
  • Some women experience orgasms instead of contractions during childbirth. If this was a guarantee (and I was married), I would have had a child a long time ago. [Dear Sugar]
  • You don’t have to worry about going raw because if used consistently (taking a pill every day, not skipping any), your birth control pill will protect you against pregnancy everyday. [Daily Bedpost]
