Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
We took one look at these $3,000 Patricia Field Chiquita shoes and thought, We want to eat those. Is that weird? They recalled the glistening, sugary pellets of Pop Rocks we used to swill with abandon as kids, not to mention they’re totally extravagant and over the top. And while we certainly don’t have a spare $3,000 to throw down on shoes, we can certainly afford a packet or two of Pop Rocks. After the jump, a few more pairs of simply scrumptious shoes and the snacks they recall.
Andy Richter is one of those comics who is so “whatever,” that when he occasionally surfaces, I’m like, “Oh, yeah, he still exists.” Case in point: last night Richter dispatched this charming tweet to Twitter, “There’s nothing wrong with Michele Bachmann two solid weeks of orgasms won’t cure.” Ah, yes, the old self-congratulatory ‘this woman sucks because she hasn’t been f**ked properly’ narrative. Bow down to the phallus! The penis cures aaaaaall! Keep reading »
Levi’s chose to pull a commercial featuring scenes of attractive teens rioting in the streets in light of last week’s riots in London. A spokesperson for the company said the ad — which includes lines from the Charles Bukowski poem “The Laughing Heart” — was probably ill-timed, considering “what is happening in the UK.” Said the spokesperson: “While ‘Go Forth’ is about embodying the energy and events of our time, it is not about any specific movement or political theme; rather, it’s about optimism, positive action and a pioneering spirit.” But, then again, it also does feature a Levi’s-clad protester facing a wall of riot police, so yeah, optimism? On another note, isn’t it strange/depressing that marketing has folded in on itself to the degree that it’s now using revolution and rioting imagery to SELL JEANS? [Clutch Magazine] Keep reading »
When my mom told me about how The Frisky did a slideshow of celebrity cat guys, I gave her the silent treatment for, like, two days. Or at least it felt like two days but it might have been two hours because I got hungry. The point is, I wasn’t pleased. Cats? Really? Everyone knows dogs are way better. What? You think I am biased? I am offended. I am nothing if not objective. But to prove my point, I present to you 21 hot celebrity dudes my mom totally would bone because she is sort of a slut and also because these guys like dogs therefore they are awesome. The End. Love, Lucca
“If people didn’t think there was a small chance I was gay, then I wouldn’t be doing my job very well. I wouldn’t be the front man of a band if that question hadn’t come up at some point … I’m extremely comfortable in my sexuality, so I can think, ‘Oh, that’s a good-looking dude.’ Acknowledging that someone’s attractive and wanting to [sleep with them] are two different things … My brother is gay, and we all knew when he was 2. We really wanted to provide some cushion for him and constantly let him know that it’s okay. A lot of people don’t want their kid to be gay and will fight it all costs. You’ve got to embrace it from the beginning.”
—Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and “The Voice,” talks to Out magazine about having a gay brother and how he thinks it’s part of a frontman’s job to be sexually provocative. I’ve never been an Adam fan, but wow, this quote actually makes me like him. [People] Keep reading »
“Bachelor Pad” is quickly making Monday my favorite night of the week. With “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” I always end up asking myself, how does ABC drag this out to last two hours? But with “Bachelor Pad,” there is so much drama! All this is to say that last night’s episode was awesome. Parts had me crying with sympathy, others had me wanting to throw things at my TV, and the final moments were like a heating pad for my heart. After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF of episode two. And duh, if you haven’t watched yet—SPOILER ALERT. Keep reading »
