Ever see four versions of the same lip color and wonder WTF is the difference? Welcome to my world. I started wearing bold lip colors about a year ago and I find myself at a loss when offered too many options. Luckily I work at The Frisky and get to Beauty Test Drive several colors without breaking the bank. Topshop sent me two bright orangey lip colors to test out — but how were they different and which did I prefer? Let’s find out… Keep reading »
The University of Colorado Boulder’s Humor Research Lab (yes, that’s an actual thing) has created a Humor Algorithm to determine which cities in America are most likely to leave you giggling — and what type of humor makes residents of that city laugh the most. Every major city has a personality of its own, so it would only make sense that this would bleed into the city’s taste for comedy.
Scientist Peter McGraw, the Humor Lab’s director, teamed up with journalist Joel Warner to collect nine months’ worth of data on individual cities’ Internet usage and comedy industries. The team measured patterns like the number of visits to Cheezburger websites, comedy clubs per square mile, touring comedians’ ratings of comedy club audiences, the percentage funny tweeters and famous comedians born in each city, and the number of humor-related web searches in the city. Once they had a top 10, the team surveyed over 900 residents to understand the types of humor they relate to and each city’s local flavor of laughs.
Check out the top-ranking cities after the jump! Keep reading »
Let me be straight with you guys: I’m a bit of a truther when it comes to celebrities. I assume most things they do are PR stunts because I am cynical and don’t trust famous people. Therefore, when I saw that Glee star Lea Michele had a “nip slip” on the set of her new music video, “On My Way.” Read more on The Gloss… [Photo: INF Daily]
Ahh, spring is in the air! The bees are buzzing, the birds are chirping, the pollen count is so high you can barely see through a haze of yellow dust. What’s not to love? But the best part of springtime, by far, is that it’s the best season to hook up. Why is that, you ask? Let us explain… Keep reading »
For better or for worse, I’m more than a little obsessed with “Teen Mom 2.” After years of watching the series, I feel like I know (and root for!) these young women personally. Watching Kailyn, Leah, and Chelsea adjust to being parents and make questionable choices is always interesting and occasionally infuriating. But nobody has the ability to traumatize my blood pressure levels quite like Jenelle Evans.
Jenelle may be a mom, but most of the time, I find myself wishing I could just swoop in and parent her. Jenelle has been in and out of jail, hopping from one toxic relationship to the next and had yet to regain custody of her son Jace when she decided to get pregnant with a second child after dating the father for what seemed like only a few weeks.
Look, nobody is perfect, but this girl needs some Deepak Chopra 101 or something. I mostly just want to scream at Jenelle, but on the show’s “Unseen Moments” special last week, she told Dr. Drew that mean internet stories about her make her cry on the daily ‚ so I’ll take a kinder approach. Here are some gentle reminders that I would not-so-subtly share with Jenelle if I were to sit down face-to-face with her and play pseudo-shrink. Jenelle, I say these things with love: Keep reading »
“Rob’s been on my mind a lot lately because we’re currently living together. No, we’re not sexually involved. My brother’s not nearly black enough for me!”
Khloe Kardashian’s guest hosting gigs for “Chelsea Lately” always include a few “whoa, did she actually just say that?” zingers, and last night was no exception. Khloe joked about Kris and Bruce’s seperation, the well-known fact that Chelsea Handler can’t stand any of her sisters, and, of course, she managed to work in a reference to having sex with her brother. As anyone who watches “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” every day at the gym (*raises hand*) knows, incest-y humor is one of Khloe’s favorite subjects, so this remark is a bit uncomfy, but not super surprising.

After 70 years of marriage, an Ohio couple passed away within 15 hours of one another other this weekend, at the ages of 91 and 92. Helen and Kenneth Felumlee, who had eight children and many more grandkids, were introduced as teenagers by Kenneth’s ex-girlfriend, who was a friend of Helen’s. After three years of dating, they eloped in 1944 with barely enough money in their pockets to pay the $2 courthouse fee. For weeks afterward, they lived in separate homes because they were so nervous about telling their parents that they’d married. Keep reading »
I’ve never been one for chivalry. I prefer to do things my way, and take pride in my own ability to lift things that are heavy, open doors on my own and find my coat in a sea of bodies and sad down jackets at a crowded bar. I’ve been with men who are completely unchivalrous, men who I’ve had to kick in the shins to lift a finger to help me carry an air conditioner up the stairs, and I’ve been with men who have fallen over themselves to get the door for me, even though I was already in the process of opening it. There’s a finesse to the art, a way of doing things that falls in between a fawning obsequiousness and a genuine gesture, bred of genteel manners and a different way of living.
There’s a fine line between chivalry and common courtesy. Holding a door open for someone who’s hands are full is good home training. Giving your seat up for a pregnant woman on the bus is good home training. Helping me into my coat at a restaurant is unnecessary, awkward and assumes that deep down, you are unconfident in my ability to put on my own outerwear when the fact of the matter is I have been dressing myself for longer than we’ve been acquainted. I understand that this is a gesture of kindness, but I view it as a harbinger of times past — and quite frankly, the past is where it should stay. Keep reading »
“Look at Bieber or whoever. You’re like, ‘What the fuck, man? What are you doing? Why?’ There’s no one telling those people no, and it’s a shame. [He should have] a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, ‘Hey, shithead!’ You see people in the world and you’re like, ‘Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish? Life skills are something we’re missing … just shit you needed to learn in life. There used to be a class that kids had to take in high school called home economics, which was cooking and sewing and just shit you needed to learn in life.”
Well, if Jon Hamm thinks that Justin Bieber is a shithead, then I guess the matter is settled. (And of course Bieber doesn’t know how to wash a dish or use a washing machine. I’d be surprised if he poops by himself.) [BuzzFeed via Men's Fitness] [Images via WENN]
