I’m tired of saying _______ is the new ___________. But a new meme thingy that’s happening on the interwebs is “stocking.” No, it doesn’t involve trolling on your ex’s Facebook page to see if he’s dating again. It’s all about having fun recreating silly stock photos. This is my first attempt at stocking (pictured above). My angles could have been better, but overall, not shabby, huh? As long as I have power this weekend, I plan to perfect my stocking technique during Hurricane Irene. That is, once I have polished off both of my bottles of wine. Should be a hoot, but not as fun as owling! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
“Because of my real-life pregnancy, we don’t go back on the air until January. I’m hoping that Tracy will have, and the world will have, forgotten about that by then. He from the first has gone around very sincerely and done his best to try to make up for the foolishness. … It’s the kind of story that even if it happened to someone else, we would probably turn it into a Tracy story. So we may use it.”
— Tina Fey talks to Deadline Hollywood about Tracy Morgan‘s homophobic jokes during his standup performance in Nashville in June. Tracy apologized almost immediately for the dreadful things he said — like how if his son came out to him as gay, Tracy would stab him — and Tina publicly chastised the comic as well for his “disturbing” jokes. Now she says the incident may be written into an episode of “30 Rock,” which certainly sounds like it would be believable. I’m not sure anything about it is especially funny, though. Do you think “30 Rock” doing an episode about homophobic jokes would be a good idea? [Deadline.com] Keep reading »
These days, almost every important cause has a corresponding rubber wristband. Support gay rights? Slip on a purple bracelet. Committed to breast cancer awareness? There’s an “I Heart Boobies” wristband for that. Want to inspire yourself to “live strong”? A certain yellow bracelet comes to mind. We couldn’t possibly list them all, but here are the stats on a few of the most noteworthy specimens…
Capes are one of my favorite trends for fall. They’re so chic and dramatic–I love how they look paired with a casual outfit (t-shirt and jeans, anyone?) or dressed up with a pencil skirt and heels for a glamorous 40s throwback. The only problem? They’re a bit difficult to pull off. I tried one on yesterday at Banana Republic, for example, and I kind of looked like a khaki version of Gregor the beetle from The Metamorphosis. I showed it to my friend Kyle and he was like, “I don’t get it. Where are the sleeves? Is it just, like, a piece of fabric sitting on your shoulders?” Very helpful, as always. So, what do you think of the cape trend? Will you be wearing one this fall? [Via Spiga Cape, $138, Nordstrom Keep reading »
