Brooklynhipsters need more positive encouragement like I need a hole in the head. But I’m still thrilled my girl Ellen Page is writing a comedy for HBO about mankind’s most poser-ific social group. The “Juno” star, along with Alia Shawkat from “Arrested Development” and Sean Tillmann (aka musician Har Mar Superstar), will write and produce Stich N’ Bitch, a show about two hipster girls who move from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Silver Lake, Los Angeles in a passionate quest to be artistes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, any of the three actors might star in the show but no roles have been cast yet. Oh, pretty please, Ellen? I can’t imagine anyone else I want to watch suffer for their art.
The dude version of hipster-y fashion mag Nylon has given teenybopper hottie Zac Efron their stamp of approval by putting him on the cover of the latest issue. I have been thinking for a while that Zac is Justin Timberlake 2.0 in that he is hot and multi-talented with Disney roots. Getting the cool stamp of approval — as Justin did from Pharrell and the Black Eyed Peas — is only further proof of that. OK, fine, I did watch “17 Again” this weekend. And I loved it. What of it?

This weekend, I will rip my closet apart with a seriousness usually reserved for much more, well, serious matters. Fall is here and I’ve still got sundresses and gingham skirts taking up precious space that is no longer rightfully theirs. This is not a time for simply shoving the unworn to the back of the closet. Rather, the seasonal clothing switch-out requires certain storage techniques that will keep last season’s clothes from getting dank and nasty until they’re needed again.
So stop simply shoving those dresses to the dusty back of your wardrobe and calling it a day. Here’s how to store your stuff properly: Keep reading »
After seeing “The September Issue,” Grace Coddington is kind of my new obsession. From her bright red curls to her adorable cats to her indescribable talent and determination as an editor of Vogue, she’s a true genius. So it really was only a matter of time before she was immortalized in some form. Cult tee company Deer Dana, creator of such brilliance as the Bruce Weber, Bill Cunningham, and Olivier Theyskens shirts, has now given Grace her very own T-shirt moment. And while the majority of the shirts are plain black and white, of course Grace’s flame red hair is appropriately completely accurate. They retail for $45, but now you’ll always have a bit of Grace in your life. [Deer Dana] Keep reading »
Kate Gosselin apparently thinks the whole world is her spawn. Well, not really, but she pretended she does on Jay Leno’s “JMZ” last night. The infamous mommy scolded three photogs who were taking pictures of her while she was loading groceries into her car. She made them stop, saying, “Hey, what did Mommy say? I asked you to stop taking pictures.” One paparazzo got a time-out and another was forced into a car seat and given a stuffed animal. The vid’s funny, but we knew it was fake as soon as we saw that Kate only bought three bags of groceries. Dude, she has eight kids! Keep reading »
I’m always on the lookout for ways I can annoy people a little less. Thankfully, the Marist Institute for Public Opinion (MIPO) has released a survey declaring the most annoying phrases in the English language—“you know” is second only to the word “whatever.” Eek, I say both! Thanks, Marist Institute, for making me watch it. Both are officially banned from my vocabulary. Now, if they could only take on these 25 words and phrases. [NY Post]
It’s no exaggeration when I say that a ton of magazines closed this week. Conde Nast’s Gourmet (sob) and Cookie have heard the death knell. That’s why I was surprised to see that a new one, Get Married, is launching. Seriously, another bridal magazine? Why is a company introducing a new bridal publication after it’s just been announced that Elegant Bride and Modern Bride are folding? Has anyone caught a peek of Get Married? [Gawker] Keep reading »
Anna Nicole Smith was a lot of things, but she wasn’t, as far as the FBI is concerned, a murderer. It was recently divulged that, beginning in 2000, the FBI started investigating Smith after they kept hearing word that she was trying to off her dead husband’s son, E. Pierce Marshall. The two were in a drawn-out legal battle over the dead dude’s estate, which was worth about $550 million in 1992. Smith’s hubby was 89 when they got married and she was 26. He died about a year after the wedding. Sketchy, yes, but in the end, the FBI decided there was “insufficient evidence” against Anna. But they did find out a few head-scratching things … Keep reading »
Dating someone who either can’t kiss at all or needs to spice up their technique? Show them this video. I’m going to work on the Vacuum Kiss tonight and then try out the Music Kiss next time I go to a concert with my sweetie! Tee-hee! [Everything Is Terrible] Keep reading »
