Sexy Or Stupid?: Laurel Nakadate Photo Exhibit

Photographer and artist Laurel Nakadate is showcasing a pretty strange set of pictures in her new “Fever Dreams at the Crystal Motel” exhibition. Posing on trucks and in skeezy motel rooms in barely there bikinis and underwear was confusing enough, but then she decided to enlist middle aged men she found on Craigslist to smear their inky fingerprints all over the photos. She’s a Yale educated photographer, so I assume she must have had something, um, brilliant in mind when she launched this project, but I just can’t figure out what. Her work is all about the private moments, usually playing peeping Tom and snapping pics of shirtless middle aged men and topless rollerskating teens. I’m not sure why this series of random exorcism videos and bikini clad pictures comes together in exhibition form, but she definitely has people buzzing. What do you think, sexy or stupid?

Die-Hard “Twilight” Fans Go On A Tour In Forks, Washington

Forks, Washington, where the “Twilight” trilogy takes place, sounds like the most boring town in the world. The weather sucks and it’s way the eff up in the middle of nowhere. I’m not surprised only 3,000 people live there. But delusional die-hard “Twilight” fans don’t see it that way. Last weekend, $300 “Twilight” Forks tours were offered, flooding the town with squealing tweens. Twilighters gathered in the drab town to go to Forks High School, where they were given fake diplomas. There was also a “prom,” where bands like the Bella Cullen Project and Bella Rocks played. A tour of Forks was offered as well. OK, I’m starting to get a little freaked-out. These people do realize that “Twilight” isn’t real right, RIGHT? Yeah, and before you say the movie was filmed there, well, it wasn’t. Most of the flick was shot in Oregon. [People] Keep reading »

Michael Jackson’s Secret Long-Term Lover

Michael Jackson’s former body guard, Matt Fiddes, claims that Jacko had a secret, long-term girlfriend. The British guard said he isn’t going to name the gal but thinks the couple’s families knew about the romance. He said the two were together for quite a while and they totes adored each other. It’s up to this illusive chick whether she wants to tell the world about her love for Jacko. Whatever, I’m still going to question Jacko’s sexuality. [Metro UK] Keep reading »

Just Say No: A 24-Hour Wedding Channel

Just when you thought there couldn’t be anymore hoopla involved with getting married, the wedding industry strikes again! The WE channel, in conjunction with Cablevision, is launching a 24-7 channel on all things bridal. Because we don’t get enough of the terrifically terrible ladies on “Bridezillas” and are just dying for more shows like “Amazing Wedding Cakes” and “My Fair Wedding.” I sometimes sit and watch some of the wack job bridezillas chicks and think, Really, why are you marrying a man you are being this horrible to now? And, That’s your mother, she’s paying for all of this, let her wear what she wants! One bride-to-be (pictured, above) got out a scale and made all of her bridesmaids step on it, on national TV, to make sure they all weighed more than her. Sometimes I scream on the inside at the grooms—Get out while you can! Soon, there will wedded (non)bliss 24 hours a day. Great. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Bar Refaeli Naked

It’s times like these I wish I paid attention in Hebrew school. I have no idea what the Hebrew lettering says, but my guess is, “Leo DiCaprio wants to rub his GF in your face” or “This is why I’m hot.” Either way, it’s kind of a mystery what this ad is for. Supposedly, Bar Refaeli is promoting an Israeli art exhibition, but from the looks of it, she’s promoting erections. [Huffington Post]

Sarah Palin Loves To Run

The August 2009 cover of Runner’s World features none other than VP Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. In the cover article “I’m A Runner,” the 45 year old Governor of Alaska talked with the magazine about her life long passion for running. As opposed to the Katie Couric interview in which she couldn’t drop the name of a newspaper she read, this interview reads quite smoothly and amazingly the woman even managed to link God’s greatness to running. My only problem: the photos portray Palin all done up and ready to run right on into a House of Representatives meeting, not the Alaska land front. But at least she defended herself saying, “When I run, I’m totally incognito because I’m not wearing the trough full of makeup. I can go running through a mob of tourists and they don’t recognize me.” After the jump, more interview tidbits fromwhat shoes Palin likes to sport to why she named her kid Track. Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: When His Parents Hate You

For the first two years of my relationship with my Large Greek Boyfriend, his mom didn’t acknowledge me by name. I was simply, “The Girl.”

“Are you bringing The Girl?” she’d inquire when he made plans for family dinner. “Does The Girl like spanikopita?” Being a typical dude, it didn’t register on the BF’s radar, but her refusal to eke out more than those two syllables made me paranoid. Did she not like me because I’m not Greek? Had I said something stupid during our initial meet and greet? He assured me she liked me just fine, she just didn’t want to bother learning a name if I wasn’t going to stick around.

Whatever the case, his mom’s inability to say my name paled in comparison to 28-year-old lawyer Anna’s mother-in-law. “I met her at our wedding and the first thing she said to me—her new daughter-in-law—was, ‘So, are you pregnant?’”

Annoyed, Anna told her she’d have to wait and see. Things got worse after Anna gave birth to their son (two years later, thank you very much!). “The doctor came in to ask how I was doing and before I could answer—and in front of everyone—my mother-in-law asked the doctor, ‘How much for a paternity test?’” Sweet!

Stunning Toilet Paper Wedding Dress

Thankfully, the final weeks of my engagement have been pleasantly devoid of bachelorette parties with plastic penis products or bridal showers with cheesy games, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a beautiful toilet paper wedding dress when I see one. Don’t think a toilet paper wedding dress can be beautiful? You obviously haven’t seen the winners of Cheap Chic Weddings toilet-paper wedding dress contest. Ann Kagawa Lee of Honolulu took the grand prize for her couture-like creation (compared by some to an Oscar de la Renta gown) made from nothing more than toilet paper, tape, and glue. Her theme was “Gone With the Wind” and Japanese origami, and it shows. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is astounding — even more impressive than the coffee filter prom dress we saw last month. After the jump, check out a close-up of the hat she made to go with the dress. [via The Cut]
