Even CGI Rollerblading Babies Love Evian

Evian wants to make you feel as good as a baby rollerblading to “Rapper’s Delight.” Umm, what? The French mineral water company recently posted an ad online featuring a bunch of CGI babies flipping and rollerblading around bottles. The company boasts that Evian’s “pure and mineral-balanced” water “supports your youth.” Sorry, but if there’s not some special youth hormone in that bottle, than it’s just regular H2O. Am I the only one who thinks this video is totally creepy? And who has The Sugarhill Gang stuck in my head? [Daily Mail]

Scientists Pull Off A 16-Way Kidney Swap

A year and a half ago, my mother had a kidney transplant. Undoubtedly, it was one of the scariest days of my life, but I’m certain my entire family would endure it again. To have my mom healthy and alive and to have received the gift of life from a complete stranger was a miracle. In the 19 months since my mom’s surgery, medicine has made leaps towards making sure any patient in need of a transplant will not die waiting for an organ. That latest advancement ended three days ago—when a 16-way kidney swap took place in four different hospitals across the country and saved eight lives. Still, the road to getting a transplant is never easy and, in my personal situation, it was a yearlong battle between science, my mom, and the donor waiting list. Keep reading »

The Only Woman On The Supreme Court: Ruth Bader Ginsberg Tells All

A lot of people are happy that Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, but Emily Bazelon from Slate found someone in particular who is pretty psyched: the only woman presently sitting on the Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Ever since Justice Sandra Day O’Connor retired three years ago, Ginsberg has represented the XX chromosomes on the most important bench in the country with her colleagues—eight men. She spoke with Bazelon for the New York Times‘ Sunday magazine about why the Supreme Court should have more women on it, why women might judge differently than men do, and her concerns about reproductive rights and the legality of abortion.

We collected nine bits of Ginsberg-ian wisdom, after the jump. [The New York Times Magazine] Keep reading »

We Can’t Wait For Drew Barrymore And Ellen Page In “Whip It”

I’m a huge Drew Barrymore fan, and I simply adore Ellen Page. So, basically, “Whip It” is destined to be my next favorite movie. In this comedy about the roller derby, Page plays Bliss Cavendar, a 17-year-old who rebels against her mother’s pageantry wishes by joining a derby team called the Hurl Scouts. Yes, they wear demented Girl Scouts uniforms. With characters like Smashley Simpson, Babe Ruthless, Bloody Holly, and Maggie Mayhem (which is an ode to the screenwriter’s real-life derby name), this film is practically guaranteeing hilarity. And as for the name of the movie, “Whip It” has nothing to do with the Devo song—it’s actually a move used in the sport to get ahead of the pack. Keep reading »

Tim Gunn Dishes On The New “Project Runway” Designers

We were extremely bummed to learn “Project Runway” was “moving to Lifetime from Bravo.

Well, season six of “Runway” is set to premiere on Aug. 20, and we’ll be watching, despite the network move. Tim spoke to People.com about his take on the new designers, piquing our interest in the show once again. Keep reading »

It’s Raining Tampons!

Here’s a crazy idea—a Dutch tampon company dropped these little, pink tampon parachutes on a beach to promote their brand. They’re kind of amazing, if not terrible for the environment. Although you probably can’t understand what the people in this video are saying, watching it will tell you two things. 1) Tampons are falling from the sky. 2) The person holding the camera is definitely a guy. Check out all the hot girls he zooms in on.
