Happy Birthday, Barack! Which Presidential Birthday Party Would You Rather Go To?

Today is Barack Obama‘s 48th birthday. It’s Tuesday, so he’s working, but we don’t feel too bad because he celebrated over the weekend by taking a trip to Camp David and brushing up on his bowling skills. He bowled a 144—pretty darn good for a dude who claimed a few months ago that his skills in the alley were on par with the Special Olympian. [Washington Post]

So, would you wanna bowl with Barack or kick it with a past prez on his big day? See how Barack’s birthday plans stack up. Keep reading »

What To Wear Now (And Later): Bubble Shorts

Along with harem pants, bubble shorts (also known as balloon, puff, and in some extreme cases, bloomer shorts) emerged as a major spring/summer trend. Circus pants, you say? Anne of Green Gables calling? Enough of that, and hear out our defense:

  1. As a summer item, bubble shorts are going on sale to make room for the fall merch, so you’ll find some good deals on designer versions (check out some picks after the jump).
  2. They are a bit of a statement item, but easily lend a sort of Chloe Sevigny-esque sensibility to an outfit (if you’re into that).
  3. A pair will make your legs look thinner. Believe us, we’ve witnessed the magic firsthand. However, these shorts might not be for the butt-conscious.
  4. Best of all, they’ll take you into fall. For a chic Parisian look, pair them with plum tights and a nice, suede booties. With a set of thick enough tights, they could even take you through winter.

Click through to see some choices, then you tell us if you’re feeling bubble shorts (errmmm, borts?)! Keep reading »

Aubrey O’Day Tries To Sound Like Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy was never really respected as a singer, but don’t tell that to former Danity Kane member Aubrey O’Day. She has remade Eddie’s “Party All the Time,” off his 1985 LP How Could It Be. Eddie’s “Party All the Time” sounds like typical ’80s synth-heavy pop music, but Aubrey was able to update it for 2009. And by update I mean she used all the voice-enhancing technology available in 2009. That being said, I have to admit that I did enjoy listening to her version, but it won’t become my favorite song or even make it into my iPod. After the jump, compare Aubrey’s version to Eddie’s “Party All the Time” video featuring Rick James. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Peep This Pink Bunny

Ok, so it didn’t arrive in time for my fifth birthday, but this is proof little girl’s dreams do come true! There is, in fact, as we speak, a pink bunny so big you can spot it on Google Earth! Viennese art collective, Gelatin, has created the 30ft high, 200ft long stuffed animal on a mountainside in the North of Italy. Best part, it’s meant to be played with! Visitors are encouraged to hop on the pink rabbit…um, not that other vibrating pink rabbit, you perv. This soft and silly bunny will be on display til 2025, although we recommend getting there before the dirt, dust, snow, bed bugs and other elements beat you to it. Now, if you can’t make it over to Italy, you can get up close with these perfectly pink and fluffy photos after the jump… [The Guardian] Keep reading »
