A Yale professor’s words this week were chilling after Annie Le‘s body was found in the wall of a campus lab: “There is a murderer among us.” Since access to the building is limited to Yale staff and students, it looks like someone in the community is the killer. The cops have already arrested and released one “person of interest” in the case—Raymond Clark III, who some say had an unrequited crush on Le. The police stress that they are still casting a wide net and looking at many different scenarios. [NY Times]
Luckily, murders on college campuses are very rare. Still, when they happen, they become front-page news. Here’s a brief, morbid history, which includes proof of why you shouldn’t enroll at Eastern or Western Michigan University. Keep reading »
“It was a really tough point in the match and it was really close and got a really tough call that wasn’t the correct call. You know, things got a little heated and I had a conversation with the line judge that didn’t go so well. I couldn’t apologize any sooner, and then also I learned from my mistakes…Obviously, when you get a bad call, it’s like ‘What’s going on?’ When you’re in the moment, you are just there. You don’t really quite remember exactly what’s going on.”

We’ve been seeing posters for Courteney Cox‘s new show, “Cougar Town,” all over New York, and on one particularly long subway ride, we stared at it so long that we started pondering her name. Wasn’t she Courteney Cox Arquette a few years ago? And isn’t she supposedly still happily married? We double-checked the credits in “Friends” (screengrab after the jump), and Courteney did go by all three names after she wed David Arquette, so what gives?
- Does ABC think no one will recognize her name, and they’re banking on her popularity to attract viewers?
- Was her full name too long for the posters?
- Has Courteney decided to give up her married name and stick to Courteney Cox professionally because it has a nicer ring to it?
- Or, are she and David prepping for a split?

Filament magazine, a for-women-by-women porno from England, ran into a spot of trouble recently. Quite inconveniently, their prudish printer refused to publish pictures of erections for fear of offending their other clients. How rude! Unfortch, that printer was 30 percent cheaper than other printers, so Filament‘s hands were tied—and not in a good way. But Filament just announced on their blog they were able to sell 328 copies and raise enough money to switch to pricier—and more liberal—printers. Hooray! You catch a preview of Filament‘s second issue online now and order a copy if it strikes your fancy.
I must say, the absolute best part of this story, however, isn’t that the porno mag can now print its peens. It’s how Filament posted a pic of a sexy guy sleeping in bed with a big black warning label over his crotch, which read “MAY OFFEND WOMEN.” Perhaps if you’re a woman who is easily offended by erections, you shouldn’t be looking at porn?

Meghan McCain has something very important to admit. She. Wears. Hair Extensions. And she’s not going to hide it anymore! Inspired by Tyra Banks going weave-less on the season premiere of her talk show, the Daily Beast columnist is ready to let her hair down. Way down. McCain admits that she has been a slave to the salon for almost her entire life, “but if Tyra had the courage to go on TV without a weave, I wanted everyone to know this: Not all the hair attached to my head is real.” Like, duh.

Designer Catherine Malandrino’s spring 2010 collection was inspired by four locales: the Sudan, the Sahara, Peru, and Polynesia. The makeup, designed by Tom Pecheux for MAC, reflected these far-flung places. “The look is very ethnic, quite tribal,” Pecheux told us. “There’s a desert flavor, and the makeup is a bit rough. Brushes aren’t allowed. We’re only using fingers.” While the inspiration wasn’t the least bit rock ‘n’ roll, the makeup would be totally fitting for the lead singer of a band. Keep reading »
