Stay Far, Far Away From This Yoga Farm!

This is, by far, one of the creepiest videos I have ever seen. There are so many weird things about it, I don’t even know where to start. But I’d like to say that the guy’s jeans are so tight I’m surprised he can do yoga at all, let alone put his head between his legs and turn into a chicken. Also, is it just me or is there something vaguely perverted about this whole thing? Keep reading »

Police Tear-Gas Mourners Who Gather 40 Days After Neda’s Horrific Death

Remember that horrific video of an Iranian woman being shot to death during the post-election violence in Iran? Well, her name was Neda Agha-Soltan and today hundreds of people gathered by her grave to mourn the 40th day since her death, an important Shiite mourning tradition. The Iranian government didn’t want any services to be held for the girl, and when mourners showed up, things got out of hand. Riot police ordered Iranian opposition leader Mir Hussein Moussavi to leave the ceremony, and then two prominent filmmakers were taken to task for laying flowers by the girl’s grave. When the mourners got angry, the cops busted out wooden batons and tear gas. Iranians moved outdoors, but police were out in force there as well. The government has told people they aren’t allowed to have any formal ceremonies for this poor girl. Which makes me so crazy angry, I don’t know what to say. Let people mourn in peace!

Newsweek Spreads The Polyamorous Love

I think there is a polyamorous trio living in my apartment building. A man and a woman live together, with their dog, two floors above me; on my floor there is a second man, who lives with his dog. I think the three of them are together because we walk our dogs at the same time, and the three of them are always together. Plus, on the weekends I often see all of them leave in a car together, which makes me think they’re on their way to their house upstate or something. Besides, the two guys really set my gaydar off, but one of the men is definitely married to the woman. I assume they don’t all live together because the apartments in my building are, obviously (as this is NYC), on the small side and besides, maybe Man #2 wants more private time. Keep reading »

“To The Guillotine!” Says Ikea

Capital punishment meets modern design, predictably at a low cost and with a name you can’t pronounce. Once you manage to assemble Ikea’s sleek SOKKOMB guillotine, you’ll be able to carry out justice by ridding the world of traitors, those who commit crimes against liberty, and any remaining relatives of Louis XVI. With its natural wood finish, the SOKKOMB line can also compliment pieces from the GRUNDTAL and VÄRDE series. [Facebook via Graphism.fr]

Yes, There Is Now A Snuggie For Dogs

I mean, it was only a matter of time. Amelia spotted this “Snuggie For Dogs,” and the best thing about the infomercial (after the jump, as the video auto plays) is not only the prize-winning script, but also the fact that it is REAL. The sales pitch is so similar to the human Snuggie ad copy that it’s scary. Just like the argument that your hands will freeze and fall off lest you take them out of your boring old sleeveless blanket to reach for the remote, your dog needs a Snuggie because, let’s face it, he “needs to go out, but it’s a cold night. A pet sweater could help, but they pull and they’re tight!” So true, so true. Then again, we might just buy one for the free gift with purchase: a dog tag that “speaks” for your pet. We’re dreaming of recording ones in the voices that our dogs actually speak in. In our own heads. You guys do that with your pets, right? Right? [Snuggie For Dogs] Keep reading »

Magic 8 Ball Says “Outlook Not So Good” for Stormy Daniels’ Political Career

It’s stormy weather for porn star Stormy Daniels. Back in February, Stormy announced that she wanted to run for Senate in Louisiana, against Republican David Vitter, who’s one of the dudes linked to the DC Madam. She’d gotten as far as forming an exploratory committee in May. But her plans have been derailed lately. It’s as if the universe is telling Stormy, “It’s better to give a BJ for adult entertainment than for a political favor!” Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Sonogram Cakes!

If you’re not quite artistic enough to make one of those diaper cake things people always give at baby showers, maybe this gift will be a little more up your alley. A sonogram cake! It may seem a little icky at first, but it’s totally foolproof and most likely delicious. Just get a pic of your pregnant friend’s sonogram, drop it off at the cake store, and BAM! The best preggo gift ever! [Mom Logic] Keep reading »

Gay Rights: What Would MLK Do?

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the civil rights group founded by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is trying to fire Reverend Eric Lee, the president of its Los Angeles Chapter, because he supports gay marriage and dissed Prop 8. While it’s pretty ironic that the SCLC would give him a pink slip over gay rights, that’s sadly, not the only thing funny about a leading civil rights group turning their back on a marginalized community. Reverend Lee was a key figure in the marches and rallies against the California bill. But sadly, 70 percent of black voters did not share his sentiments at the polls. While the SCLC refuses to comment on the matter, perhaps, as the WOW Report pointed out, this quote from a 2003 speech by MLK’s widow, Coretta Scott King, can come to his defense now.

“I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people. … But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream, to make room at the table of brotherhood and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people.”

Models Live Messily, Just Like Us!

We already know that models like to blog like us, but here’s a home tour we can really relate to as well. The Selby, this is not. Downtown photographer Kathy Lo snapped equally downtown-dwelling model, Hanne Gaby Odiele, in her messy, normal gal-looking apartment. See how the fashionable half lives—when they don’t pay someone to clean up after them! Computer cords littering the floor, cardboard boxes that have probably been there since she moved in, wine cork-screws left lying around … I sort of love it. It’s reality. (Especially when you are never at home and didn’t employ an interior designer, like so many un-supermodel models.) [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
