Get Your Rocks Off: Nina Persson’s Heartbreak Hymns Playlist

Chances are, you probably remember Nina Persson as the angelic front woman for the band The Cardigans — remember their hit “Lovefool”? That was some goodness. Nowadays, Nina is still a member of The Cardigans (who released Super Extra Gravity last year), but she’s also got an amazing side project called A Camp, described as “a minimalist fusion of eclecticism and Americana.” A Camp’s self-titled debut record won four Swedish Grammys and Nina is hard at work on a follow-up. Hopefully this one, thanks to the loads of critical praise the last one received, will be available stateside (without having to pay for an import). In the meantime, the melancholy wonderment which makes Nina’s voice so special is also present in her list of “Top Ten Heartbreak Hymns.” Enjoy her picks, after the jump!

    “Mummy, Can I Have A Boob Job For My Birthday?”

    Meet Georgia. Georgia is 12. Georgia wants a boob job for her 13th birthday. It’s no wonder — Georgia’s mom, Alicia Douvall, has had over 50 plastic surgeries, 12 of which were on her breasts alone. (Seriously? She looks like such a natural beauty!) But don’t worry! Douvall isn’t the kind of terrible mother who would give her tween a boob job! No way! That’s crazy talk! Everyone knows the appropriate age for a little girl’s first breast augmentation is 16, because “a 16-year-old with a nice, sexy figure will do really well as a model.” [Sun U.K.] Keep reading »

    Boo! Hiss! It’s April 15th!

    Oh, Tax Day. How do we loathe you? So, yeah, ladies, don’t forget to file today. I either love filing my taxes because I’m getting money back or I despise it because I owe a ton. In a perfect world, what would you like your tax dollars to go to? I personally would love for tampons and birth control to be totally free, because it’s not our fault that our ovaries do what they do. [TurboTax] Keep reading »

    Barbarella Does It Again

    Barbarella is an inter-gallactic sex symbol, a lover and a fighter, and she’s coming back to the big screen! Director Robert Rodriguez, who is known for being Quentin Tarantino’s boy crush and for stylized films like Sin City and Planet Terror, is now taking on the swinging ’60s space odyssey. And he’s going above and beyond to stick to the original — even behind the scenes. Rose McGowan, Rodriguez’s fiancee, has signed on to fill the go-go boots of Jane Fonda, whose husband Roger Vadim directed the original in ‘68. Although filming had been delayed due to the writers’ strike, hopefully the impending Screen Actors Guild strike won’t get in Barbarella’s way. But if there’s one thing we know about the Amazon woman, nothing and no one can stop her! [Media Morgue] Keep reading »

    Stay Away From Rhino Horns

    If your supply of ground rhino horn has diminished, you might want to go without for a while. Two 19th century horns were stolen from a South African museum, and they could be headed to Asian, where rhino horn is a popular aphrodisiac. This is sad for the museum, but it’s even worse for the person who ingests the stolen rhino horns. The taxidermy mounts were prepared by being soaked in arsenic and applied with DDT. Whoever thought ground rhino horn would improve their sex life has another thing coming. [Reuters] Keep reading »

    Somewhere Out There, A Male Mouse Is Singing His Heart Out

    If you think the mouse squeals you can hear between your walls are gross, just wait until you listen to the ones that are normally (and luckily) inaudible to the human ear. Sure, over hearing a neighbor or roommate having sex can be quite traumatizing, but male mice screech higher than Michael Jackson when they’re getting tail. Researchers at the University of Toronto, have discovered that boy mice actually have feelings and real emotions — it’s in their genes. For example, when a male mouse encounters a female or even simply smells one, it gets so excited that it will chirp in a special way based on its individual genetic make up. Basically, male mice sing sweet ballads to show their softer side — remember Fieval from American Tail? [New Scientist] Keep reading »

    Happy Black Day!

    Think we have too many lame romantic holidays in the U.S.? Don’t visit South Korea. There, marketers have cooked up even more days to make single people feel bad about themselves. White Day, on March 14, is when men give gifts to women. (Local custom dictates that women give men presents on Valentine’s Day.) Black Day is today, and it’s when singles wear dark colors and commiserate over meals of black food, the favorite being Chinese-style noodles topped with a thick black bean paste sauce. Yum. If Valentine’s Day, White Day, and Black Day aren’t enough for you, there’s Green Day in August, but it hasn’t gotten much traction. Celebrating Green Day involves drinking cheap liquor from green bottles and walking in the woods. [Reuters] Keep reading »
