Oh Amy Winehouse, you sure are a hot mess and an unending source of entertainment. Recently, the singer tried to get in touch with her inner child by going to a pantomime production of “Cinderella.” She started off right, sitting in the audience with a bunch of kids. But things deteriorated when she started shouting profanities at the cast. When the staff tried to remove her from the sea of upset kids, she allegedly kicked the front-of-house manager in the balls.

So, turn that “I wish I celebrated Christmas” frown upside down and break yourself off a piece of that Matzo Ball! [The Matzo Ball] Keep reading »
Feliz Navi-dang! Forget the halls and the holly, you gotta deck your nails out! Happy holidays!
These last few days have just been a wee bit stressful, trudging from store to store as I started and finished my holiday shopping in mere days. So, now that I’ve wrapped my last gift, it’s time to relax with a spiked beverage.

2009 has been mighty fine, if you’re into sweet music videos.

Mercedes tapped slick and sexy photographer Nick Knight, asked him to collaborate with amazing and out there designer Gareth Pugh, and bought themselves one shiny new ad campaign. Do we like? [WWD] Keep reading »
The Japanese two-legged sleeping bag is amazing, not because it’s a revolutionary design, but because someone thought people would actually want it. There’s no way any infomercial spokesperson would touch this thing. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »
