8.9 Earthquake Hits Japan, Tsunami Warnings For Coastal U.S. And Hawaii

A massive earthquake — at 8.9 on the richter scale, it’s among the largest in record history — hit off the shore of Japan today, causing a powerful tsunami to sweep away homes, cars, people, and boats. At least 32 people are dead and that number is expected to rise. There are also tsunami warnings for the coastal U.S., particularly California, as well as Hawaii.

Jack White’s Awesome Record Truck


What is Jack White up to now that The White Stripes have hung up their black, white, and red gear? He is trying to rectify the fact that, as explained in this video, “97 percent of high school aged kids have NEVER been to a standalone record store. Never.” And so Jack has devised the Rolling Record Store, which comes stocked with records from his label, Third Man. Jack will take the store on the road from his home in Nashville to Austin for South by Southwest next week. Very cool. My only question is—yellow? What has happened to you, Jack?

10 Famous Emotional Eaters

I think it may be time to stop picking on Christina Aguilera. The poor girl is going through a divorce, she fumbled the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, stumbled at the Grammys, was arrested for public intoxication, and subsequently gained a pound or 15. I think she still looks perfectly acceptable (well, not in her mug shot), but Star magazine reports that she is “numbing herself with booze and food … devour[ing] pizza, french fries, and other fattening foods.” Geez. I’m not sure I blame her. Nothing takes the pain away as fast as an order of french fries and a bottle of wine aka EMOTIONAL EATING. Some of us, ahem, can relate to that problem. It’s hard not to turn to Ben & Jerry for comfort during rough patches. I hope she can step away from the pizza if she so desires. After the jump, some more famous emotional eaters who kicked the habit. [Celebitchy]
