Voicemail From A Crazy Person

What’s better than emails from crazy people? Voicemails from crazy people!! And, boy, is this a doozy. The story is: a woman was out with some friends at a bar in Toronto when she was approached by an aggressive guy who wouldn’t leave her alone. Finally, to get rid of him, she gave in and gave him her number. We’ve all been there, right? Only, she made the big mistake of giving her business card with her real number. He, in turn, left these crazy-ass voicemails, which I hope will prove a valuable lesson to all of you singles out there: NEVER give your real number to someone you don’t want to hear from!

Fashion Photographer Solve Sundsbo Turns Design Collaborator

One of my favorite fashion photographers is Solve Sundsbo. The London-based photog hails from Norway, and his images are eye-popping, brilliant, and arresting. Now, Sundsbo is collaborating with Paris-based fashion house Surface to Air to create a series of wearables that bear his images. Their line includes limited-edition dresses, tops, and bags, all priced around $200. Check out the slightly NSFW shot of one of the bags after the jump. [fashionologie] Keep reading »

Cindy Crawford And Other Celebs Who Can’t Shut Up About Their Cellulite

Supermodel Cindy Crawford shares her dimple-woes in the September issue of Redbook:

“I have cellulite. “I admit it. But sometimes I just say, ‘Screw it, I am going to wear a bikini.’”

We can’t understand why stars like Cindy, who at 43 has a bod more rockin’ than we’ll ever have, feel the need to talk about their cellulite. Ladies, it doesn’t make you any more “real” to us. It mostly makes us hate you a little more because you have absolutely nothing to complain about. Our cellulite could beat yours any day. Click through to read what Hayden Panettiere, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, and other stars have said about a subject very few of them have experience with.

Girl Facing Jail Time For Art Project Gone Very Wrong

If you attended an arts college like I did, then you know that the constant competition to be the best, the brutal critiques, and the pressure to push the boundaries is enough to make you want to jump off a bridge. And in a move that can only be described as supremely post-postmodern, that’s what Swedish art student Anna Odell attempted to do as a performance art piece for a final project—jump off the Liljeholmen Bridge.

Scary New Masturbation Device For Dudes

Yeah, so there’s pretty much nothing about this video that doesn’t freak me out. The obsession with hygiene. The fact that no identifiable human appears in it. That the product is called “The Flip Hole.” Say hello to a guy’s new best friend when it comes to high-tech self-pleasuring. Designed by the people who think masturbating with robo-eggs is a good idea, what we have here is a plastic vagina with a ribbed interior. Dudes stick their peen into the hole. And then … the magic happens? I don’t know. Sometimes men confuse me. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

RIP: Songwriter Ellie Greenwich

Sigh. The summer of death continues. In addition to the passing of Senator Edward Kennedy on Tuesday evening, writer Dominick Dunne died yesterday, as did songwriter Ellie Greenwich. Greenwich is best known for writing a number of songs made famous by the girl groups of the ’60s — “Chapel of Love,” “Be My Baby,” and one of my most favorite songs of all time, “The Leader of the Pack.” Check out the Shangri-Las performing the heartbreaking tune above.

    A Breast Cancer Prevention Drug Might Actually Cause Tumors

    Um, weird. A new study shows that women who use Tamoxifen, a drug mean to prevent estrogen-sensitive cancers like breast cancer, for more than five years are four times more likely to develop a non-estrogen-sensitive tumor in their other breast. The new tumors, although uncommon, are more difficult to treat. Scary, but docs are quick to question the study, which only examined women’s chances of developing cancer in their second breast. Some said it could just be a “statistical fluke” and pointed out that none of the women who took Tamoxifen for one to four years developed a new tumor. Others are worried that the results of this study could make patients scared to take the drug, which has been proven effective in keeping cancer from recurring or spreading. Eek.
