Christians Convert Penthouse

Nothing says Penthouse magazine quite like boobs, a g-string, and good Christian morals….wait, whaaaa? The porno publication famous for its scantily clad “pets” has been saved from financial ruin by branching out into internet dating with BigChurch.com. The site, which boasts a half a million members nationwide, is like a conservative Jesus-loving version of JDate.com. Sexy pickup lines include “Love God and you will be loved too,” “Trying 2 find the Light can u help,” and “I’m looking for Christian woman with mature thinking for good relationship.” [Newsweek] Keep reading »

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week of May 20th 2008

  • Scarlett Johansson is the latest starlet to put a record out. But unlike the over produced bubble gum pop of her predecessors, Anywhere I Lay My Head is a tender collection of Tom Waits covers. You know the girl’s got it going on when David Sitek from TV On the Radio produces it, Nick Zinner from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs plays guitar, and David Bowie sings back-up vocals. Her deep voice is perfect match for the thoughtful tracks and she even wrote one original, “Song for Jo”. While you probably weren’t impressed by her “Brass In Pocket” Pretenders’ cover in Lost in Translation, this disc will definitely live up to her hype. [Amazon.com]

    Protect Your Ears From Nickel

    Even though we love buying jewelry from indie designers, we just read a somewhat disturbing report. In a sample of earrings bought at 34 different places in San Francisco, 30 percent tested positive for nickel, and studies estimate that 5.8 percent of American adults are allergic to nickel. You should be fine, but nickel exposure can cause dermatitis, which sounds nasty. Just try to buy nickel-free stuff. Anything made from platinum (and stainless steel and gold) is completely acceptable. [HealthDay News] Keep reading »

    Austria is getting ready to host the Euro 2008 soccer competition, and over the weekend, U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick gathered 1,840 people for a photo in an Austrian soccer stadium.

    Pick Up An Austrian

    Out-of-towners visiting Austria for the Euro 2008 soccer competition will receive a free guide, which includes a few essential phrases (i.e., Do you have a sliced sugared pancake with plum compote?). I guess flirting with locals was deemed essential, because the books a phrase for picking up members of the opposite sex: “Servas, fesche Katz.” It translates literally as “Greetings, hot kitten.” I’m so adding that to my repertoire of pickup lines.

    Egypt’s First Female “Maazun”

    Egypt has appointed its first female official to certify marriages and divorces. Amal Soliman applied for the “maazun” position because it would allow her to work close to her home and three children, not because she wanted to start a debate, which she has. “It is wrong to have a woman in this position,” one man said. “My sheikh tells me that if we are to get married that we must avoid her because she can’t do the job.” Part of the issue some people have with her appointment is that women aren’t allowed to enter mosques or read Quaranic verses when they’re menstruating. Amal says she plans to conduct home visits during those times and will also have an assistant who will be able to enter the mosque when she cannot. Ten others, all men, applied for the job, but Justice Minister Mamdouh Marei said Amal was chosen based “on her abilities rather than on her gender.” Keep reading »
