Reader Charlotte West sent us this photo taken in Vilnius, Lithuania. “When couples get married,” she told us, “they attach a lock to the Uzupis Bridge and throw the key into the river below.” We can’t stop awww-ing. Keep reading for a closeup of the padlock.
Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to email@example.com.

I’m very much attracted to a guy who happens to have the same birthday as me (9/11/84 @ 6:30 pm, don’t know his time). After two drunken makeout sessions, I’m very confused because he has been running hot and cold with me for the past two months. We’re friends and I can’t figure out if he’s afraid to make a move for the sake of the friendship or if he’s not interested. I can’t help but think that it’s significant that we share the same birthday, but am I reading too much into it? – Confused Keep reading »
Ruh-roh. Looks like “Bruno,” Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie about a gay Austrian fashion guru, may land an NC-17 rating. The party-poopers of the Motion Picture Association of America weren’t amused by the raunchy sex in the film—like when Bruno mimics backdoor boinking with another dude. Keep reading »
If you haven’t noticed, we’re a bit obsessed with women throughout history. National Women’s History Month may be over, but we can’t help but to keep highlighting interesting women from the past. My sister got me a subscription to National Geographic for Christmas, and the April issue introduced me to Hatshepsut, a female pharaoh who ruled Egypt form 1479 to 1458 B.C. Since it’s now 2009 A.D. and the U.S. still hasn’t had a female president, you can imagine that it was a pretty big deal for Hatshepsut to rule back then.
The pharaoh’s body was discovered two years ago, and we still don’t know much about her life, but what we do know is rather scandalous. Hatshepsut was the eldest daughter of Thutmose and Queen Ahmose. Because they believed so much in strengthening royal bloodlines, incest wasn’t a bad thing and Hatshepsut married her half-brother Thutmose II, producing one daughter with him. Thutmose II’s heir, however, was a son by another woman. Thutmose III was super young when his father died, so Hatshepsut stepped in to help him out. Keep reading »
We don’t have a boyfriend to buy us jewelry, but that’s cool, because our last one didn’t quite get our style anyway. Instead, we’ll just get ourselves something we like at a price we can afford! Fetty jewelry designer (and Semi-Precious Weapons rocker) Justin Tranter has expanded his collection to include Fame, a line of affordable ($40-$100) trinkets featuring crystals that spell out words in Braille. Bet you can’t guess what this “I Love Me” bracelet says. [$50.40, Karmaloop.com] Keep reading »
In her autobiography, Cloris Leachman brags about bumping uglies with Gene Hackman.
“As we moved into the main course, it was as if a cosmic wind enveloped us. Some giant space magnet was pulling us together. We didn’t finish the meal. We went upstairs, flew into bed and made love. It was epic… I remember well the feisty lad he was.”
Whoa, down girl! Sometimes celebs just don’t know how to keep their big mouths shut! But Cloris isn’t the only star who’s screwed someone strange. Hollywood has a whole history of odd hookups. Here are some of the most shocking… [via Huffington Post]

Ah, April — the month of fools, taxes and same sex kisses? Well, yes. Apparently, Starbucks, because it’s one of the most “gay-friendly, corporate spots in the world,” will be hosting Same Sex Kiss Day on April 15th this year. Exploiting the LGBT community, Starbucks is encouraging everyone to come out and buy a cup of coffee from them and uh, kiss someone of the same sex, because, like, LGBT people don’t yet have the same rights to file their federal taxes jointly and everyone knows a coffee and a kiss will solve that! Don’t have someone of the same sex to make-out with? No Problem! There’s a Facebook page, of course, where you can “find someone cute in your town.” And no, you don’t get a free cup of coffee is your participate. How would that help Starbucks, I mean, the LGBT community?! Keep reading »
