Life Dream Status: Now You Can Relive A 1970s Pan Am Flight

Pan Am

If you have a tendency to romanticize the golden age of air travel like I do, you can buy yourself a ticket on a glamorous faux Pan Am flight and pretend you’re a part of the magic. Air Hollywood, the aviation-themed movie studio in Los Angeles, created the Pan Am Experience to simulate a 1970s trip on a 747 plane. Air Hollywood has an exact replica of Pan Am’s former 747s, and stewardesses greet passengers in original uniforms from the period. Every last detail on the plane, including the glassware and types of meals served, is historically accurate. As a guest on the flight, you’ll be served cocktails in your seats and enjoy inflight entertainment before heading to the upper deck for a meal. After that, you’ll be able to view the studio’s “vast collection of airline memorabilia” and check out other film sets at the studio. It sounds pretty sweet, except for the part where the plane is a set and doesn’t actually fly. Are there at least plane engine sound effects or fake turbulence for a true aviation ambiance? If you find yourself buying a ticket, report back on whether they stage a take-off and landing. [Laughing Squid] [Image via The Pan Am Experience]

Size Does Matter: “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Wine Just Got Bigger And Better

Size Does Matter: "Fifty Shades Of Grey" Wine Just Got Bigger And Better

Warning: I will try and refrain from making continuous size and girth puns while writing this post.

“Fifty Shades Of Grey” wine has been on the market for a few years now, but E.L. James, the author of the book series, has upped the ante for those of us who fancy a … bigger specimen. Now, E.L.’s very own Red Satin blend, inspired by the romance and passion between the trilogy’s main characters, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, will be offered in a limited edition, 3-liter bottle. Equal in volume to four standard wine bottles, the “Fifty Shades of Grey” Red Satin Collector’s Edition includes a hand-engraved bottle painted by artisans in Napa Valley, California, and is hand-dipped in a red hot wax seal. FANCY. Keep reading »

13 Real-Life Struggles Of A High-Heel Strutter

12 Real Life Struggles Of A High Heel Strutter

They say “The higher the heel, the closer to God.” But I say, “The higher the heel, the farther you fall when you trip in those heels and bust ass.” Stilettos are sexy as hell; they’ll give you the illusion of legs for days and can even boost your self-confidence, but the price of beauty ain’t cheap. Any woman who’s ever slipped on a pair of stilettos knows that new heights come with their own set of struggles, and cobblestone streets are just the tip of the iceberg. Here are 13 pain-in-the-ass problems all too familiar to the heel-wearing kind.  Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Kirsten Dunst's Sleek And Simple Double-Breasted Blazer

Shit, I forgot one item on my fall fashion must haves list! In addition to a bomber jacket and leopard print and a smock dress, you (and I!) must absolutely consider snatching up a double-breasted blazer. A blazer like Kirsten Dunst’s looks so chic over a feminine dress or topping a simple T-shirt and jeans. And I straight up found the perfect one for super cheap — just $39.99 at MANGO. Pull together her entire look with the items after the jump! Keep reading »

“Grey’s Anatomy” Cast Members Are “Orange Is The New Black” Fans Just Like The Rest Of Us

The “Grey’s Anatomy” cast had a little fun on set dressing up as the cast of “Orange Is The New Black,” with Sara Ramirez working it as Alex Vause and Ellen Pompeo as Tricia. No, this is not their subtle way of announcing some kind of bizarre onscreen crossover (thankfully!), but it’s pretty adorable. [BuzzFeed]

FOX Picks Up New Show Based On Neil Gaiman’s Lucifer

ASDFJKLGHSJKL GUYS THIS IS SO AWESOME.

For those of us who have been waiting decades for a movie version of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, this is almost as good: FOX has picked up a pilot based on the Lucifer character from Sandman. Uhhhhhh what. Some of the greatest scenes in the Sandman narrative take place in Lucifer’s Hell, and, IMHO, Lucifer as a character is right up there with Death. In other words, this is almost as good. Maybe better? We all (well, we all fans of Sandman) know the narrative needs to be fleshed out in order to do it justice, so maybe a series is better than a movie.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, now’s the time to go check out the Sandman volumes from your local library. Also, kudos to Neil Gaiman for his continued and well-merited success. True story: We have a mutual friend who finds it amusing to tell me personal anecdotes about Neil in order to make me blush because I may or may not have a giant crush on him/he may or may not be my hero. Suffice it to say I’m excited. [A.V. Club]
