“Pirates Of The Caribbean 4″ Looks Mermaid-tastic

 

Behold, the trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” The rest of the interwebs is excited about it because Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz seem to have a love/hate flirtation going on as they search for the fountain of youth, even though Johnny has said Jack Sparrow is gay. I am excited about it because … it’s a mermaid movie! A genre that should be much more common. Keep reading »

Death Metal Version Of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Somehow More Appealing Than Original


I worked really hard all last week to stop Rebecca Black‘s “Friday” from creeping onto my radar; like, I could see it hovering peripherally, and I heard snippets of the song, but I refused to give it my full attention. Then I saw that there was a metal version of the tune and I just couldn’t resist listening. From what I can tell, this version is more soothing. Keep reading »

13 Scented Candles We’re Obsessed With

As a single lady, one of my favorite ways to relax is by running a hot bubble bath, pouring a big ol’ glass of wine, and lighting a deliciously scented candle. Don’t ever send me into some froofy home accents store and expect me not to walk out with a bag full of expensive, fragrant wax. I am candle obsessed. Sure, it kind of irks me that candles can be so damn expensive, but then I think of the per use cost — how many hours those suckers often burn for — and the pleasure their lovely scent brings me and I feel a wee bit better. With that in mind, here are 12 drool-worthy candles that smell (or purport to smell) so goddamn amazing you’ll want to eat them. Though I really recommend you don’t, FYI.

How To Get A Guy To Clean The House

“If you want someone to do more cleaning all you have to do is make sure there is a vague smell of citrus in the air. This smell will subconsciously influence your partner’s thoughts and their actions, making them think more readily of cleaning products — and using them.”

According to a new book called Get the Edge, written by psychologist Geoff Beattie, you can use little mind tricks to improve all areas of your life. For example, he says you can get someone to clean the house simply by bombarding them with the scent of citrus. I’m going to leave orange peels around my apartment and then invite a dude over and see what happens. If it works, I’ll never have to clean again! Please, let it work. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

The 10 Most Surprising Season Finales (Spoiler Alert!)

finale big love jpg
Last night’s series finale of “Big Love” ended with a shocker. No, the sister wives didn’t opt for an arm-wrestling match to see who would win Bill Henrickson once and for all. (If you haven’t watched yet, you should STOP READING NOW.) Bill finally resods neighbor Carl’s lawn, and Carl confronts him in the driveway about it, taking it as an insult. Cut to the wives, inside cooking Easter dinner, as they hear gunshots. They run outside and find Bill on the ground. As he dies, Bill asks for a blessing from Barb, passing the torch as spiritual head of the household to her. From there, we get a flash forward 11 months and discover that not only have the wives stayed together, but in many ways Bill’s death has given them the life they wanted.

Amelia and I have discussed the episode ad nauseum, and think it was right to have Bill die in the end—after all, the guy is totally boring, not to mention doesn’t at all deserve to get booty from three women whenever he pleases. But honestly, we wish he’d been shot in the beginning of the season, so we could see how the three women function without him. In many ways, it’s their story that made the show. Also, why have Bill shot by his neighbor rather than, say, some political activist who objected to him trying to legalize polygamy? The whole thing felt very “American Beauty.”

But still, we always applaud a shocker finale. Here, our 10 favorite finale twists of all time.
