A-Z Guide To Male Names

A website called DJMICK has posted an A-Z guide to female names in which they call Amelia “a bit old-fashioned,” Anneka (their spelling) “sporty in and out of the bedroom,” Catherine as one who “needs ironing,” and Wendy as a woman who “works on a building site, possibly a man.” What?! Well, we can play that game, too! After the jump, my A-Z guide to male names. Keep reading »

“The Walking Dead” Zombies Coming To Your TV Set

Now that vampires have gotten the stake, give a point to zombies as the hot new underworld phenomenon to fascinate audiences. Our beloved AMC, the network that brings us “Mad Men,” has a new show in the works based on Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead.” The amazing black and white comic has come out monthly since 2003 and was a hot commodity almost immediately, so of course it sparked a bidding war. Good thing AMC won. “Walking Dead” tells the story of a band of survivors trying to find a safe sanctuary in a post-apocalyptic zombie-run world. Frank Darabont, who wrote “The Green Mile” and “The Shawshank Redemption,” is set to write, direct, and executive produce … which proves the network is taking this venture seriously. Senior VP of Original Programming, Joel Silverman says, “I don’t know of another series of books that has such beautiful storytelling, great human emotions and everything that really works on AMC. It allows us to stay where we want to stay: in the world of smart, sophisticated storytelling and apply that to a show that we think the audience would love.” We’re hoping they can bring the sexy back to the undead.

Is This How Michelle Obama Gets Her Famous Arms?

Everyone wants Michelle Obama’s amazing arms. However, no one wants to work to actually get them. Voilà the Shake Weight, a “revolutionary” exercise gadget for women that guarantees bangin’ muscles. All you do is hold the weight in front of you, grip the movable handle with both hands, and shake, shake, shake. You hardly have to move at all thanks to a made-up sounding concept called “dynamic inertia.” The best part? You need only spend six minutes a day looking like a complete idiot to get the super toned, lean arms you’ve always wanted. Don’t believe it? Extensive studies were conducted at a “prestigious California university.” Would that be the California University of New Technologies? (Think about it.) [YouTube] Keep reading »

Omarosa Heads To A Seminary

Sit down, people. This will be even more shocking than when you found out M.C. Hammer was a minister. Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, the tough-as-nails villain from season one of “The Apprentice” who somehow spun her infamy into a spot on “Celebrity Apprentice” and “The Surreal Life,” has also chosen the path to the lord. She’s enrolled in the United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, where she’ll get her doctorate of ministry. The school is pretty thrilled to have her, despite her bad rep. “She has expressed a calling in her life and it is our opportunity to provide leadership and guidance as she makes a transformation,” the associate dean told Dayton Daily News. “We’re excited about her coming to school at UTS. She certainly has a heart for ministry.” [Dayton Daily News] — Hey, at least she isn’t headed to a nunnery. Keep reading »

For The Week Of August 17-23, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Taking an apathetic approach will do wonders for your state of mind. Not only will learning how to say “F*ck it!” be a powerful lesson in stress relief, it’ll also put out the right signals to Mr. Man about how to get you back into feeling the inspiration – and it will let him know time is up on having too much of a good thing without returning the favors.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Pay attention to your hunches and don’t let your talent to make excuses get the better of you. Whether you are avoiding taking back control due to fear, laziness or just all-out confusion, sitting on the fence is the worst route to take. Push and shove immediately, as taking a side will knock everything into its proper place.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Thankfully, you have your friends because this is the week you will need them on the speed dial — to get them to talk you off the ledge at any given moment. Your moods will be crashing in all sorts of directions and logic will seem hard to grasp. While you might fight reason initially, trust in the end it’ll be what saves you from a mound of humiliation.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You of all people hate to follow rules, but if you don’t create some structure in your life to follow, then you will be leading yourself down a slippery slope. Best to have a plan set and ideals in mind. The more of a clue you give yourself now, the less likely you will be caught off-guard with crappy situations that shouldn’t plague you.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

This is one of those weeks when shocking revelations make themselves known, turning you on beyond words. Forget trying to talk yourself out of falling deeper into the emotions you wrestle with. What’s the point? It would be like realizing you have a winning lottery ticket and purposely not cashing it in.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Hot monkey sex and all the libidinous fantasies you have brewing in your mind will come to a head this week as your secret desires can no longer be held back, darting you ahead into the wild unknown like a savage beast hungry from too long of a hibernation. Yes, this is when your raw instincts will come alive and lead you into territories never ventured before. Enjoy!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

In the scheme of things, giving into your baby’s current demands isn’t so dismal. Besides, it’s time to throw him a bone, as he has always chivalrously given you the bigger end of the stick (and quite gently and effectively too). Plus, if you don’t start showing some gratitude then you’re just biding your time before there’s an expulsion from paradise.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

All your psycho theories get a run for their money this week as actions you set into motion start to sprout out their consequences, giving you a clue on how well you know a certain someone. Hopefully, this surprise will be a good one, as in a chemistry that ignites and a partner that knows how to correctly play back with you. Otherwise, know if it’s not happening now, it never will.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Good times are here and best to get to enjoy them while the getting is good. Yes, communications will run smoothly and saying how you feel will open doorways you never thought you’d get past. So ask those questions that plague you and set your mind straight. Know that whatever info is given is done with great trust, so embrace it all.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Plans you have been going with will hit a bump by the end of the week. From there, expect to switch directions and sort out a new destination. Just don’t waste time mourning what you could have had, as it won’t do a thing to move you in the right path. With no time to waste, trust this really is a blessing in disguise.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Asserting your will doesn’t have to be a daunting thing, if you are correct. This week express yourself. If those you’re dealing with are sane, they’ll get your smart ideas and be willing to back you up. Arguing has no place in your life now and if you do have to push hard to prove your point, realize you just have to find other ears to pay attention.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

All the answers you need are staring you in the face. The obvious is in the details. If you look closer at your situation, instead of the dreamy bigger picture that keeps driving you forward in the wrong direction, you’ll find cracks in the foundation that need to be sealed or completely trashed. Either/or, this week is all about working, communicating and negotiating. Good luck.

It’s Baaaccckkkk: How To Style The French Twist

Just when you thought ’70s and ’80s hair was dead and gone, the fall 2009 runways up and resurrect those looks. Spotted on the Brian Reyes runway was the one and only French Twist!

Here’s how to pull it off yourself. Keep reading »

Shaving Your Armpits Was A Huge New Trend In 1915

The fairer sex didn’t always have to spend time grooming their underarm area. Women didn’t shave their pits before about 1915 because no one ever saw that part of their body. According to Mental Floss, even the word “underarm” was considered scandalous before that time. But then designers cooked up a dress without sleeves, and an ad in Harper’s Bazaar said that to wear the style, women first needed to attend to “the removal of objectionable hair.” And we all got out our razors.

Brad Pitt To Bill Maher: Gay Marriage And Pot Are Good, Religion Is Bad

Brad Pitt stopped by the set of “Real Time” Friday night and chatted with Bill Maher about his pro-gay marriage, pro-pot, and anti-religion stance. “What is it you don’t like about religion?” Maher asked.

“You know, I grew up in a religious family, in a religious community and it just doesn’t make sense to me. It just doesn’t work for me in the long run,” Pitt said. “I never wanted to step on anyone else’s religion and their beliefs — that’s what’s great about our country — until I started seeing it defining policy. … Like gay marriage, you have a group of people telling other people how to live their lives, and you can’t do that.” Keep reading »
