Corduroy Skirts Are A Sin!

The photo alone is funny, but here’s the background story. Chris Pesto (the guy holding the “cord skirts are a sin” sign) is a student at Syracuse University and noticed two people holding “Homosexuality Is A Sin” signs on campus. Though he supports their right to express their, uh, opinion, Pesto — who is gay — wanted to express his as well. He wrote on his Facebook page:

“This woman was wearing a ankle-length corduroy skirt, which, as we all know, is a fashion nono. So, in order to make her feel uncomfortable, I stood next to her and held a sign that said Corduroy skirts are a sin! I don’t think I have ever drawn so much attention in my life. SO many people asked to take a picture with me, I got laughs, high fives and there were the few that even cursed off the woman standing behind me.”

Pesto was joined by others also expressing their support of gay rights and he was even interviewed by the local news. No word on whether the hatemonger took his fashion advice and chucked her skirt in the trash. [The F Bomb] Keep reading »

Sex & Celluloid: What The Hell Is Wrong With Robert Pattinson?

I’m sorry; I didn’t see “New Moon.” I’m not even one of those too-cool-for-“Twilight” hipsters or anything, in fact, I read the first book in Stephenie Meyers’ Twilight series, saw the first movie, and actually thought, Wow I love vampires and they are attractive and I would like to have sex with them. But then I remembered I could just go watch “True Blood,” which is an equally guilty pleasure, but has a lot more grave-sex and, well, sex in general (thanks HBO!). But just to reiterate: I’m not anti-”Twilight,” and if someone asked me I would probably put myself on Team Edward, even though I might feel some underlying white guilt since, as far as I can tell, “New Moon” is a loose interpretation of the story of the original Pilgrims, what with the Native American werewolves fighting the European clan of vampires and what-not. Just in time for Thanksgiving too! Keep reading »

For The Week Of November 30-December 6, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Who cares what happens behind closed doors? Let go of judgments and dare to give into your curiosities. This is your time to free yourself from the rules you’ve placed on yourself and explore the possibilities. No one is asking for more than you can give, so be kind to yourself and dip your toes into the unknown. Besides, it’s those naughty little secrets that’ll turn another on the most.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You won’t win if you keep comparing yourself to everyone around you. Plus, you won’t be able to be objective right now anyway, as you’ve been too busy blowing up the image of others around you. Instead of beating yourself up, trust that you have a good thing and where you are is exactly where you’re supposed to be — but if you don’t start setting sights higher, you will get left behind.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Drama and love don’t have to go hand-in-hand. While some obstacles are unavoidable, be prudent with what you are buying as excuses. Sure, it takes work to be in a relationship, but sacrificing your pride and testing your patience don’t qualify as such. Draw the line between abuse and understanding and get a leg up on your love life immediately.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Let your idealism run away with you and expect more than you imagined. The only way to get what you want in life is to aim high. If you keep short-changing yourself, thinking no one can give you that fantasy, then you might as well throw in the towel. But this week, things are going to change; though, you must set the target with a vision for all to come into your line of fire.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Think back to the vivid dreams you’ve had or pay attention to the ones you’ll have this week, because as it goes, your psychic powers will be in sharp form and could reveal one of the hidden mysteries that have kept you wondering. To make the most of it and to be your own psychic hotline, before you go to bed, focus on your dilemma of choice and then dream away the answers.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

A new hope is around the corner, so don’t give up yet. Chances are a twist in your current love story line is about to happen, throwing you in a maddening passion that will have you exploring all sorts of extremes you never thought you would. Seems the magic of love or the very strong power of lust will be taking you far out of your comfort zone.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Give those jealous haters their day now and let them think what you want. Don’t you worry, darling — you will get the last laugh! Be patient with what fate deals you now, as the cards in your current hand might not be so great, but they’re helping you perfect your game and problem-solve. When it comes down to it, you’re the one risking the most – and you’ll be the one to win it all.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Keep your momentum up by putting yourself out there and showing off your stuff. Even if you’re attached, working your flirt muscles will do wonders for your esteem, as it’ll give you the heat to come back home and reignite things the way you once thought they should be but got too lazy to maintain. If single, be obvious — it’s the only way to feel the burn.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Scrap all that you know. Work from the gut instead. Spontaneity and feeling the moment are your friends now, opening you up to opportunities you never knew existed. Throw caution to the wind and take the consequences as they come. Not to say this will bring you all the riches you desire, but it’ll change up your point of view enough to see that new possibilities are out there.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You can’t fight magic when it happens, so don’t even try to talk yourself out of a invite that comes this week, as this leap of faith will be what opens your eyes to a whole new way of looking at someone who’s been in your life. Take a risk, no matter what others are saying, and prove them wrong — this is your week to do all the things you love in a truly shocking style.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Intimacy doesn’t always happen the way you envision and the longer you hold on to the way you think things should be, as opposed to how the actually are, you will lose out. Yes, time to scrap your stubbornness, as it will be your downfall. Time to loosen up the reins and give yourself some slack. Besides, hasn’t that old ideal of perfection you’ve held on to let you down enough?

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

There are many sides to your affections and revealing them all can be quite a shock to another’s system. But if you have the right catch on the hook, opening up will stimulate him to reveal all his secrets, which will play quite nicely into making the next step of your courtship even more intriguingly dangerous and devilish.

Quotable: Patrick Stewart On Speaking Out Against Domestic Violence

“The truth is that domestic violence touches many of us. It is very possible that someone you know – a friend, sister, daughter or colleague – is experiencing abuse. One in four women will experience domestic violence at some point in her lifetime. And every week two women are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales, and 10 women take their own lives as the only way they know how to escape a violent partner. You are almost certainly paying for it. Domestic violence costs around £26bn a year in medical, legal and housing costs … This violence is not a private matter. Behind closed doors it is shielded and hidden and it only intensifies. It is protected by silence – everyone’s silence … Most people find the idea of violence against women – and sometimes, though rarely, against men – abhorrent, but do nothing to challenge it. More women and children, just like my mother and me, will continue to experience domestic violence unless we all speak out against it.”

– Actor Patrick Stewart on his experience as a child with domestic violence and why he supports Refuge’s “Four Ways To Speak Out” anti-domestic violence campaign in an essay for the UK’s The Guardian Keep reading »

Blind Item: The Real Reason Behind The Shaved Head Trend?

This blind item is so juicy and sad if it’s true. All of this is alleged, of course — via Crazy Days and Nights:

“This female singer has a very unique hair style. She said she came up with the idea on her own. I’m sure she did after the fact. It was necessitated though by the fact she got into a fight with her idiot A-list singer/producer boyfriend who took a pair of scissors and cut huge chunks of hair off our female singer’s head.”

Your theories? Ours is, well, obvious. Keep reading »
