Guys, I think I just watched the most astoundingly beautiful and moving “So You Think You Can Dance” audition ever. The show is back for its 10th season, and on Tuesday night’s episode, Hampton “Exorcist” Williams — who you will probably remember from season nine — ended up auditioning for the show with his girlfriend and adooooorable daughter, who share his unique style of dancing. What you’re about to watch is possibly one of the most powerful and inspiring things I’ve seen on TV. Like, I was a bawling mess. So good!
Yesterday, Amelia gifted me a book that she knew would be everything to me. The Fart Tootorial: Farting Fundamentals, Master Blaster Techniques, & The Complete Toot Taxonomy was all that and more. I learned just about every fun fact there is to know about gas — from which foods make your farts smell the worst (cauliflower and cheese) to why your own toots don’t smell bad to you (because it reminds you of the smell of your mother). Of particular interest to me were the farting release techniques. While it was helpful to learn how to do the Downward Floating Fog or the Power Squat, I felt that many of these techniques were male-centric (probably because the book was written by two men). But what of us female farters? We deserve gas releasing techniques that are right for us. Here are a few I enjoy…
Though Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house, it is Tea Party darling Rep. Michele Bachmann who’s cast off into the northern country’s snowy forest in this summer’s smoldering romance tale as the inspiration for Fires of Siberia. Publisher Badlands Unlimited describes the book as:
“…an old-fashioned bodice ripper romance that brings the heat for the 2013 summer beach reading season. Presidential candidate Danielle Powers, full of firebrand pluck and red state sex appeal, has the country in a tizzy. But on an international tour to beef up her foreign policy experience, disaster ensues—her plane explodes over Siberia. Miraculously, Danielle survives, along with one other passenger—a mysterious stranger named Steadman Bass.”
Author Trey Sager confirmed Rep. Bachmman herself is the inspiration. And this, my friends, is the cover:… Keep reading »
For the majority of my life, I was The Girl With The Grubby Nails. Nothing was more satisfying than sitting on my bed, lost in a book, gnawing in a distracted fashion on my tiny nail stubs. Save an ill-advised love affair with acrylic French tips in high school, my nails were largely ignored, left to languish while I concentrated my efforts on mastering liquid eyeliner and figuring out a flatiron.
Enter the $10 manicure, the ultimate lifesaver. For the price of two magazines, three street tacos, an iced tea and a big cookie, my nail game was on point, effectively transitioning me from Not Grown to Almost There. However, my lifestyle often belied my appearance, and I’d ruin manicures regularly, digging in my bag for keys, rustling around for chapstick, and once, just by walking up a flight of stairs. My $10 mani obsession had reached its peak, and it was a waste of money. After hours of internet research, I perfected an at-home mani situation that is fun, and dare I say, relaxing. Let me show you the way. Keep reading »
Milla Jovovich was spotted at the Cannes premiere of the new Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” (Yes! Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as his lover!). Her red carpet combo is pretty daring, even for Milla — showing quite a lot of side … well, not boob exactly, but ribs? Torso? Chest cavity? I don’t even know. I’ve loved Milla ever since she was 15 and modeling for Sassy and claiming that her favorite book was Dostoyevsky’s Crime & Punishment. I mean, isn’t that precious? So yeah, big fan. But this shirt doesn’t look so much like a shirt as a strange apron or something? I mean, Milla can pull it off, I guess, but what do you think? [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
OK, you guys, I know a lot of you watch “Nashville” and you’re no doubt as excited/nervous/sad as I am that the big season finale is TONIGHT. I am still reeling from last week’s episode (well, more specifically the last 10 minutes of last week’s episode), and I’m dying to see how everything plays out tonight, and what new storylines they’re going to set up for next season. But before it airs, I’d love to discuss a few things… Keep reading »
You miss the ’90s, we miss the ’90s, everybody misses the ’90s. It was a happier time of economic prosperity, a predictable climate, peace abroad (well, aside from a couple genocides) and a watchable — nay, enjoyable – M. Night Shyamalan film.
But not everything from the ’90s is worth missing. Here are the worst excesses of our best decade, from Marty Beckerman, author of the new book ’90s Island. Read more on TruTV…
