Oui, Y’all: Why Accents Are So Attractive

As if dating shows couldn’t get any worse, there’s a new addition to the primetime lineup this summer called “Dating in the Dark.” Maybe you’ve heard about it. Three men and three women court each other in a pitch-black room to find out if love is, in fact, blind. While I’m not racing to the next casting call, I do think I’ve figured out what my secret weapon would be: an accent. Who, I wonder, has never melted like chocolate in a warm hand at the sound of an exotic voice? Give me a nice Scottish brogue and those lights would never have to come on. Keep reading »

Quickies!: “Sherlock Holmes” Gets Pushed Back To 2010 — Maybe?

  • Rumor has it, Brad Pitt will arrive in London tomorrow to begin shooting the role of Moriarty in Guy Ritchie‘s “Sherlock Holmes.” This means the film’s release will be pushed back to 2010. But the film’s producers told Us Weekly that this report is false, and the flick is on schedule for a December 2009 release. We know where we stand — Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr. and Brad! This trifecta would definitely help Guy atone for his recent theater bombs.

We tried and tress-ted (ha, sorry) a few little numbers and found a few that make the grade — whether you’re going for high volume or stick straight — but won’t make your wallet cry. Keep reading »

1,224-Pound Cupcake Wins World Record. We Want To Eat It!

The world’s largest cupcake was unveiled this weekend at a car show in Michigan. The behemoth triple vanilla cupcake with pink frosting weighed in at 1,224-pounds, beating the former record holder eight times over and by an estimated 2 million calories…that’s about 1,600 days worth of calories, by my calculations. The decadent beauty took 12 hours to bake and required 800 eggs and 200 pounds of sugar and flour. Slices were sold to raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer organization, so it didn’t go to waste! But I’ve got an issue—what makes this a cupcake besides the cupcake wrapper? If a cupcake is just a miniature cake, isn’t something that big just a cake in disguise? [Associated Press] Keep reading »
