Last month, after a bunch of students in Wales broke a world record for the most people dressed as Smurfs at one time, Kate T. challenged all us Friskians to come up with our very own world record to break. While I’ve been racking my brain to come up with ideas (most people to group kiss at once, anyone?), other folks have been breaking records left and right. The Broadway show “Rock of Ages” broke the record for the largest air guitar ensemble on July 1, and who can forget the woman with the world’s strongest vagina? Speaking of vaginas, what about a nakey world record? Doh, the American Association for Nude Recreation has it covered. Or uncovered? Keep reading »

Korto Momolu didn’t win season five of “Project Runway,” but her handmade jewelry definitely stole the show. And now you don’t even have to be a top model to wear her designs, because she’s bringing the jewelry to the masses on her website. “I tried to do a follow-up on the few pieces that I got to show at Fashion Week,” said Korto to Tom & Lorenzo: Fabulous & Opinionated. “They’re very much Asian and African inspired and it’s a fusion between these two ethnic cultural backgrounds that I really love.” Check out a few pieces of Korto’s jewelry after the jump.

Posh Spice Victoria Beckham may or may not be in the upcoming Sex and the City sequel. Ohmygod. Intel on this rumor remains fairly vague, so we can’t tell you much beyond the whisperings that she’ll be playing a fashion industry figure if she does, indeed, make an appearance. But lest we leave you hanging entirely, let’s engage in some wild speculation as to what various roles she might play. Fun, right? [Elle UK] Keep reading »
If gays can’t marry, no one will. That’s the point of view of some clergy in the Refuse To Sign movement, who believe that gay marriage should be legal everywhere, but individual churches should be allowed to choose whether or not to perform the unions.
While some clergy won’t perform any weddings or sign marriage certificates to straight couples, other clergy members will still announce, “I now pronounce you husband and wife” but will request the straight couples have a judge sign their marriage certificates instead. Keep reading »
Keep the paparazzi away — or you know, avoid running into certain people on the street — with these chic, vintage-style Balenciaga sunglasses. The design was inspired by Cristobal’s archived sketches from the 1960s, the oversized panels are right on trend, and the gradating color makes them like, beyond. They’re available in lots of color combinations, but my fave is this orange, purple and grey combo, (oooh wait I also love the red, fuchsia, and brown!). The subtle yet poppy look makes them so perfect for summer, and they’ll totally work well into fall. Find them online for $330 at Balenciaga.

People looking to set off fireworks with a new sex technique and those who might have missed out on sex ed when they were younger can get a refresher course at the “Amora Sex Academy,” an interactive exhibition that recently opened in Berlin. The slogan of the exhibit is “Finally — an exhibition for those who always have to touch everything.” There are more than 50 interactive displays in which men and women learn about each others’ bodies. Visitors play with the erogenous zones of naked mannequins positioned in different sexual positions. When one female model’s G-spot is accurately located, she lights up and shrieks, “That’s it!” Keep reading »
There are several different types of love. There’s the sweet, calm love you feel for a pet, or the fire-in-your-pants love you feel for a romantic interest. And of course there’s friend love, which can sometimes be so consuming that the only way to express it is in a slightly aggro, clench-jawed way that says, “I love you, man. Okay? I f***in’ love you. There. I said it.” If that’s how you feel about your bestie, check out these cracked heart Best Friends necklaces by In God We Trust, which bring back the old-school charm without the sugarcoat. Now all you need to do is get drunk together, have a heart-to-heart, and hug it out. [$220 for set of two, Refinery29Shops.com] Keep reading »
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” will hit theaters this Wednesday, July 15, and we can barely contain our excitement. We haven’t seen the film yet, but New York magazine reviewed it, saying some pretty nice things. One aspect that writer David Edelstein took issue with was how good-looking Emma Watson has become. While he says all three main protagonists have all grown up and matured, Edelstein doesn’t think Emma fits as Hermione anymore — she’s not nerdy and awkward enough. Keep reading »
