Two Porn Stars Accused Of Killing A Tattoo Artist

Okay, I am going to give you the Cliff’s Notes version of this bizarro murder story. Follow along, kiddies. Once upon a time there were two porn stars, Jason Andrews and Amanda Logue, who met on the set of a porn shoot and fell in love.

Women Are Most Appealing At Age 31

Eat this all you young, hot 20-somethings. According to a new survey, women are at the peak of their appeal at age 31. Why? Well, because aside from still having their good looks, they possess the X-factor that only comes with age: confidence. The thought is that by the age of 31, a woman has let go of insecurities and feels comfortable in her own skin. This includes having a more authentic sense of style and radiating a feeling of beauty. I don’t wanna brag, but if this survey is correct, this should be a very, very good year for me. [And me! -- Editor] And my apologies to the gorgeous 20-somethings I may have insulted. You’re hot and you know it. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Woman Hits The Jackpot Photographing Cats In Wigs

After watching this news report featuring Jill Johnson, a North Texas woman who got a book deal — see: Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Cats in Wigs — after she, a serious photojournalist, started photographing cats, yes, cats, in wigs, yes, wigs, I got really angry at myself. Why didn’t I pursue that idea of photographing cats in wigs back in 2005, when I had it? Now I’m the one with no book deal and no photos of cats in wigs. This is pretty embarrassing. For me. And the cats. I guess I can console myself with the fact that all these cats with wigs smashed on their heads look like they are not fans of Jill Johnson or her photography. Or wigs.
