The New York Times did an interview with Sex And The City Executive Producer, Michael Patrick King, who seemed to pooh-pooh rumors (started by one of the movies’ stars, Cynthia Nixon) that a character dies in the soon-to-be released movie. “Someone’s going to die,” he said, “Like that’s what I’m going to do.” However, King insisted on not having Carrie and Big’s parents involved with the wedding that is at the center of the film, because, “My idea always was that these women were purely creations of New York.The prototype of the series is that these are four grown-ups who make a family of one another.”

A new trailer for Batman: The Dark Knight is out and it looks crazy freaking good. Christian Bale, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal…and of course, the late Heath Ledger, who honestly looks like such a sexy McPsycho in this film, it’s no wonder some critics are buzzing that he could get the Oscar for his portrayal of the Joker.

Eight Belles was the lone filly — that’s a female horse — racing in the Kentucky Derby this year. As she was rounding the bend, in a solid second place, both her ankles broke. She managed to pass the finish line in second, but collaped on the track. Because horses are not able to heal from wounds as severe as this (for a variety of reasons) Eight Belles was euthenized on the spot, literally laying on the track in front of thousands of onlookers. I burst into tears (nary a sound from the rest of the drunken Derby watchers at the watering hole I was frequenting). I don’t know if it was because of the harsh way her sentence was carried out , or how bitter a light it shed on one of these little events I’ve so enjoyed in the past, or just because she was the only lady out there amongst all these brawny dudes, but seriously…wow.

One of our favorite groups right now is Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, who played backup on Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black — but regardless of their association with the troubled neo-soul singer, The Dap Kings are incredible in their own right. Check out the video for their new single “Tell Me” above! Keep reading »
Hello pretty people! We hereby order you to take five minutes out of your precious time and to go over to the Frisky forums for three extremely important reasons:
We’re desperate from your thoughts on summer shorts. We’re going to be doing a slideshow based on your recommendations, so don’t leave us hanging. We cry very easily.
Now that you have hopefully had a chance to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we’re super curious if you think that showing peen in the movies is degrading to men. I think you know where we stand, but we still would love for you to weigh in.
Elle wants to know whether you’d date a guy who’d been around the block with 100 women. FYI, the guy is not Johnny Depp in Don Juan DeMarco.
Enjoy the weekend, lovelies! Keep reading »
Japan’s 65 and older population is expected to double by 2050, and the number of them who are single is also increasing. Luckily, old people are getting more familiar with something called the internet, and in Japan, a cultural change has happened, and older people can talk about being sexual, which means they need to find people to be sexual with them. In short, they are starting to online date — about 9 percent of Match.com members in Japan are 50 and over. 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 »
Um, have you guys watched Rock The Cradle on MTV? My DVR has been filled to the brim with enough crap, but I came across this clip on DListed and immediately regretted not prioritizing this awesome badness. The show centers around rock “royalty” who also want to be as famous as their parents. It’s a talent show, supposedly, but just listen to the pipes of Olivia Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi. Sandra Dee’s daughter sings like that? Ick. That apple fell in a totally different orchard, if you know what I mean. Keep reading »
