Love Vandal: The Hottest Commodity

Reader Megan found this on the side of an old movie theater in Portsmouth, NH.

Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to tips@thefrisky.com. Keep reading »

Mathematical Proof That Fashion Trends Really Are Cyclical

Show me a graph, flow chart, or anything that looks like it could have come from my math textbook in high school and I’m lost. Numbers and equations are simply not my thing. But transition the hard facts into fashion trends and you’ve got my attention … Keep reading »

Fab Finds In A Fashion Editor’s Closet



Sasha Charnin Morrison keeps a slightly lower profile than that other fashion editor the world is getting to know better, Anna Wintour. But she is a Major-with-a-capital-M player, having worked at all the top glossies like Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Allure, and she is now the Fashion Director at US Weekly. She’s also really hilarious and defies the stereotype her species is known for by being a total rock star in the sweetheart department. She let another lovable fashionista, Abby Gardner from, ahem, Fashionista.com, in to see her closet and let’s just say Sasha’s got a bag collection that would make Kimora Lee jelso. Speaking of envy, watch for the custom Steven Sprouse dress that turned Kate Moss green with the stuff. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

An Ode To “The Wizard of Oz”

There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home. And there’s no movie quite like “The Wizard of Oz,” which turns 70 this week. Munchkin Land, the ruby slippers, the flying monkeys, the Emerald City—this 1939 blockbuster still has no expiration date. It gave us songs you still know by heart and images which still amaze, even in the age of CGI effects. It spawned fantastic remakes such as “The Wiz” and “Tin Man.” Raise your hand if you were ever forced to watch a carefully timed demonstration of how cosmically the movie’s first scenes line up with side one of “Dark Side of the Moon”!

Quick Pic: Emma Watson Wages A War With Her Skirt

Unlike some young starlets who seem to go out of their way to rack up paparazzi crotch shots, Emma Watson is determined to make sure she does not become another tabloid casualty. Keep on keepin’ it classy Emma! Still, you’d think Burberry would want to make sure their campaign star’s dress fit properly. [London, 9/22/09] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: The Tucker Max Funny-Making Formula

  • Amanda Hess at The Sexist blog braved “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell” scribe Tucker Max‘s website for a mathematical breakdown of his hilarious jokes about Mexicans, gays, women and the disabled. A general formula for Tucker-ian humor: [Universally recognized bad thing] + [surprise reversal] x ["edge"] x ["shock value"] = Tucker Max joke. [The Sexist]
  • Brigham Young University, a Mormon college, canceled a Greek tragedy hours before curtain at the Annual Greek Festival. Content in “The Bakkhai,” to be performed by the University of Utah, was deemed inappropriate for BYU students. Director Larry West indicated this referred to sex, wine and “losing one’s inhibitions.” [UWire.com]—Seriously, this school didn’t realize a Greek tragedy wouldn’t involve lots of sex?

    A 56-Year-Old Virgin!


    Last week, a retired school teacher named Deborah Parish came before the Texas Board of Education to argue for sex education in schools. “Kids are not ready to be parents, nor are they ready to have AIDS,” she said. I don’t think anyone’s ever ready to have AIDS, but that’s besides the point. “I don’t think any of these people know you can have sexual satisfaction without taking your clothes off,” she said. “OK, embarrassment, I’m 56 years old and I’m a virgin … technically.” A few minutes later, Deborah was interrupted and told that she had arrived to the hearing a day late for that particular topic. The Board was currently discussing physical education and alcohol awareness. [Gawker] — Awwwwkard. Keep reading »

    Love Nest: Add Art To Your Bookcase, But Not The Way You Think

    I was just salivating over the photos of Jen Bekman’s apartment on Design Sponge this morning. She’s the genius behind the enormously successful (inexpensive) art-for-all website 20×200. As I was ripping through the images I happened upon one little sneaky trick for upping the pretty factor of any gathering of books: Top the books with a small framed picture or photo. Check it out above, as found in Jen’s bedroom (and see the opposite view, after the jump). Keep reading »

    Pam And Jim Prep For Their Wedding

    Remember last season, when Pam and Jim didn’t psych any of us out as they planned to sneak out and elope while their coworkers were dancing in “The Office” disco closet? They got halfway to the door when they decided to set a date and presumably print it on Dunder Mifflin paper invitations. Well, now there’s a website devoted to their big day. And yes, it includes an awkward engagement photo. I was elated by the site’s homepage, squealing as I skimmed my mouse over the (mostly stock) photos, looking for clickable hypertext. Then, finally, I sighed, as most of the tabs simply advised that information will be coming soon. Hurry up and post your registry items, Pam and Jim. I want to send you the gravy boat of your dreams!

    Quick Pic: Katy Perry’s Stylist Feels Her Up On Set

    The paparazzi were on hand to snap away behind-the-scenes as Katy Perry shot a rather wet-looking new video yesterday in LA. (They’re so helpful, those guys.) But it was Katy’s stylist who really went out of his way to assist when he lent not one, but two hands to make sure his client and her girls were looking their best. This may seem extreme, but there are lots of male fashion stylists out there and we’re pretty sure plenty of their mitts have been in even more intimate places than this. In fact, we shudder to think how much work Gaga‘s dresser has cut out for herself. Or himself. Haha, get it? (Uh, maybe not, never mind.) [TMZ] Keep reading »
