Where Are You On The Doomed Relationship Chart?

If your relationship made it past perfunctory intercourse, creeping malaise and ill-advised carnal deviance, congratulations—it isn’t doomed. Yet. You’ve still got two more weeks to go. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Soulja Boy’s Third Leg

Soulja Boy leaked this pic in an attempt to show what heat he’s packing. Really, someone just needed to brush their teeth and he was playing a practical joke. That tube of toothpaste was back on the counter in no time. [Ohnotheydidn’t] Keep reading »

Your Dream Fall Wardrobe (On the Cheap)

blk strpless dress 071509 jpg
It’s about 1,000 degrees out and the thought of putting on a coat is borderline terrifying, but today many retailers start rolling out next fall’s designer clothes. (Because what’s more fun than trying on cashmere sweaters when you’re drenched in sweat?) Preemptive though the timetable seems, we’ve got to admit that there are some gorgeous pieces to salivate over, consider blowing our rent on and then ultimately, back away from, slowly and sadly.

But when you do as much web browsing as we do, the cheapie versions of next season’s designer collections start jumping out at you, winking lasciviously and promising to look almost as good as the real thing. Like the Forever 21 cocktail dress above (right), which shares some of the Yves Saint Laurent dress’s tailoring influences. No, it’s not made of leather like the YSL, and you won’t cry tears of joy when it comes in the mail. But it will look bitchin’ with some bangles, ridiculous heels and a cropped motorcycle jacket and you’ll have enough money left over to, well, not be homeless.

The Top 5 Dating Red Flags (According To A Man)

To help women tackle the well-known problems they have in their relationships with men, there are a number of popular TV shows, Web sites, newsletters, and self-help books that attempt to discuss what men are all about, and purport to help women understand men better. Women — generally being the more insightful and self-effacing gender — write the majority of these self-help tomes, so a man’s perspective is conspicuously missing. In my opinion (and with no disrespect intended toward those female writers), it doesn’t matter how a woman analyzes and assesses men’s societal ills, or how many focus groups she holds; she is still not a man… and she never will be. She is attempting to interpret men; her data-driven research is internalized and offered solely from a woman’s point of view, and thus incomplete. There is no choice but for her views to be skewed, because they’re based on the following societal program/lie: Women are responsible for the problems in relationships, and must fix them. But that is completely inaccurate, and is one of the reasons I offer the following insights into the world of men from a man’s point of view … as a man who has been on both sides of the fence — womanizer turned dedicated husband and father.

Advertising Gaffe In Michael Jackson Catching On Fire Video

Today Access Hollywood and US Weekly share exclusive, never-before-seen footage of Michael Jackson’s hair catching on fire during the infamous 1984 Pepsi commercial filming. The pyrotechnic disaster is significant not just because Jackson sustained some very serious second- and third-degree burn injuries, but some insiders claim it was the catalyst for the painkiller addictions that would later cost him his life. While I do believe that posting this seriously disturbing video is tasteless and tawdry, I’m actually kind of an a-hole because once I knew it was there I couldn’t resist taking a peek. While I waited for the video to load, I was treated to a commercial about new Dove products where the narrator cooed, “Repair your hair.” Next, MJ’s hair caught on fire. Yeesh. To be fair, the commercials they show in this video rotate and I’m sure this was totally inadvertent, but just sayin’… Might wanna yank that one guys. [Access Hollywood] Keep reading »

Why Are Penises Always Funny In Movies?

After seeing “Bruno,” one of my male friends went on a 5-minute rant about how penises in movies are always played for laughs. In his opinion, the nudity law of cinema is that when a woman’s naked, it’s completely serious or titillating, but when a peen pops up on screen, it’s meant to be hilarious. He repeatedly asked the question—why? Keep reading »

Rent-A-Boyfriend Agency

“In a world of lonely women…” lonely, rich women, a new elite group of male escorts are cashing in. Real life gigolos between the fine wine ages of 30 to 45, are pimping out their charms a la HBO’s “Hung.” But as you’ll see in this promotional video, these boys are not run by some hapless poetess pimp. The bi-coastal Papau Agency will loan you one of their professional metrosexual men by the hour. It’s convenient for the gal on the go, but don’t think you’re going to get the goods. There is a no-sex policy. Bummer! What you do get from the 3-year-old agency is a “companion.” In other words, Rico Suave will gladly flex his muscles in front of your ex. For $150-$300 an hour, that’s still priceless. [Bound, Not Gagged] Keep reading »

Genius Space Saver?: Full-Length Mirror/Ironing Board

My studio apartment isn’t exactly palatial, so I’ve had to do without certain things that people who live in larger places would never consider an extravagance, like an ironing board. If I iron any of my clothes (I tend to hang them in the bathroom while I shower and let the steam do its best to erase the wrinkles), it happens on my kitchen counter. Designer Aïssa Logerot created this combo ironing board-mirror concept, which would certainly help me to wear less wrinkled clothes to the office. Maybe one day Bed Bath & Beyond will be smart enough to carry them, but until then, the kitchen counter will have to suffice. [Toxel.com via Notcot.org] Keep reading »

World’s Oldest Mom Dies: Can Really Old Women Please Stop Having Babies?

Carmen Bousada, the world’s oldest mom, recently passed away from cancer at age 69. The Spanish mama conceived twin boys via donor eggs and artificial insemination, despite having gone through menopause 18 years earlier. How did a lady her age get knocked up in the first place? Bousada lied to an L.A. fertility clinic and pretended to be 55-years-old, not 67.

Tell me, what compels older women—and their doctors—to make mommies out of grannies? She went through menopause 18 years earlier. Menopause is nature’s way of telling your body that your babymaking years are finished. Keep reading »
