It took Rose Pallard a long time to commit to her boyfriend, Forrest Lunsway. Thirty years, in fact. The two had been together that long when 90-year-old Rose finally agreed to marry Forrest—on his 100th birthday. The two tied the knot in Southern California on March 19 in a joint wedding and centenial birthday party. And while they might be the oldest newlyweds in the world, man, do they still have some moves. After all, Forrest did get down on one knee and ask for Rose’s hand in marriage without any issues. Rose’s advice for making romance last? “Be forgiving and patient and say ‘I love you’ every once in a while,” she explained. I also think these two are poster children for lookalike couples—they have almost identical faces. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
I have teen pregnancy on my mind today. In case you haven’t heard, today is the National Day to End Teen Pregnancy, and 16 years ago, I was a pregnant teen. I always knew motherhood would be an important part of my life, and when I was 18 and found out I was pregnant, there was a voice inside of me that said, calmly and clearly, Now is the time.

We were always of the mindset that face tattoos were strictly the realm of crust punks, Mike Tyson and the criminally insane. And then Laced and Waisted came along and made this temporary lace tattoo mask that adheres to your skin. It looks a little too Ke$ha-rific for our tastes, but what do you think? Would you rock a lacey-facey? [$30, Supermarket HQ] Keep reading »
I know what I’m watching this evening. This week’s episode of National Geographic’s “Taboo” features Stanley Thorton, an adult baby. The 29-year-old sleeps in a crib he built himself, plays with Legos, and is spoon and bottle-fed by Sandra Diaz, his “caretaker.” No, they are not lovers. And yes, in case you were wondering, he wears diapers. In public, Stanley behaves and dresses as an adult man, but at home, it’s all baby, all the time. This is not a sexual fetish for Stanley, it’s about recapturing the love and care of early childhood and “relaxing” after a long day. More please. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
When I was a little kid, my teenage sister explained to me that she had become a woman. This meant that for one week out of the month, I had better do exactly what she tells me. I would never know exactly when that week would be, so for my sake, she lovingly suggested I play it safe and stay out of her way. Because during that week, she would be going through a natural change that happens to all grown adult women and she wouldn’t be able to control her rage.
So, largely, I did what my older sister told me, because it was obvious that she was a werewolf. Keep reading »
Whoa. It is a seriously good week for new music. Euro pop-rockers Architecture in Helsinki release their newest, which includes the song "Contact High," my favorite video of 2011 thus far. Watch now, please. For you folk fans out there, Fleet Foxes have a new one, too. But for my pick of the week, I gotta go with our favorite black magic woman, Stevie Nicks, who is releasing her first solo album in 10 years. The cover of In Your Dreams says it all-it shows Stevie in a witchy black velvet dress holding the reigns of white horse. Translation: expect classic Stevie-style songs of tortured love sung with her signature raspy vocals and passion like none other.
