Things are getting ugly: after NYPD officer Kenneth Moreno was acquitted of rape last week, posters went up in his Brooklyn neighborhood allegedly listing the street on which his family resides. “Police rapist Kenneth Moreno lives on [blank] street in Park Slope,” the signs read (above), which have been posted on New York City-based blogs with the address blacked out. Other signs, evocative of artist Shepherd Fairey’s “Obama” posters, read “NYPD Rapists” with Moreno and Mata’s pictures (after the jump).
I personally think Moreno is guilty as sin (as well as his former partner, Franklin Mata, who allegedly stood lookout while he raped an unconscious drunk woman in her bed). And I’m not necessarily against protest-art-as-vigilante-justice. But I absolutely cannot support making the guy’s alleged address public when, over the course of his job, he surely pissed off a drug dealer or murderer.
What do you think of these signs? [Gothamist] Keep reading »
Tell me this is a joke? Please? Tonje Langeteig is reportedly a Norweigian pop star, manufactured in the same vein as Rebecca Black and “Friday.” Her song, “I Don’t Want To Be A Crappy Housewife” is … well … listen to it. And then, off to the disco you go! [World Of Wonder]

When it’s hot out, you want to put as little thought as possible into what you’re wearing. And that’s why rompers are a great summer option–one piece of clothing you can jump in and out of, wear over a swimsuit and pair with heels or sandals and be on your way. We’ve found a bevy of romping, stomping options for you to try — all under $100 — so you can get on with your summer fun already!
This idea has been a long time coming. Designers over at LA denim studio Bleulab created totally reversible jeans. Given how little we actually like washing our jeans in the first place, the idea that when your jeans get dirty you could simply TURN THEM INSIDE OUT is actually revolutionary. The best part? The jeans aren’t some freaky deaky modified pajama jeans situation on the crotch — they actually have front pockets, zippers, and regular closures. This got us thinking about what other kinds of clothing innovations we need to see happen. Like maybe some retractable shoe laces, that trim themselves to the perfect length? Or white shirts with mega-stain guard technology? What would you innovate? [$163-207, Bleulab Reversible Denim] Keep reading »
Vogue Italia‘s latest cover? So. Gorgeous. I hate to beat a dead horse, but why the hell are these models called “plus size“? Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley just look like voluptuous bombshells to me.

In the wake of Weinergate, perhaps it would be an appropriate time to make a confession to the men of the world. Dick pics don’t really turn us on all that much. In the universe of nudie photos, bulges, hard-ons and the like don’t do the same thing for us that vaginas and boobs do for you. Sorry, to break the news, guys. We are turned on by the thought of you rubbing one out in our honor, but women are not as visual. We don’t need to see the evidence. According to an article in The Washington Post, a study found that dick pics do nothing for women, sexually speaking. Researchers found that men operate under the golden rule of sexting, “I think it’s hot, you should too.” But they are amiss in their logic. The kind of things that turn us on are way different. When women were polled about what kind of pics would get them all hot and bothered, some answers included a man folding laundry, a home cooked meal, and a guy’s alphabetized bookshelf. Um, yes. Sexy! After the jump, some pics you fellas out there could send us that would get you laid for sure. Keep reading »
