Yep, it’s still Earth Week, y’all. So far, we’ve discussed the Freegan, the Locavore, and the Righteous Recycler. Now, let’s turn our eyes towards Eco-Consumers, who aim to shop their way to a greener planet. You know, the ones who brush with organic toothpaste, wear clothes made from sustainable materials, and wipe with recycled TP. Keep reading »
“I remember throwing something out of the [car] window because I couldn’t drive. Obviously, one hand had the d**k and the other hand had the knife, so I couldn’t drive.”

Is advertising that uses women’s sexuality always sexist? Feminsting.com blogger Samhita says this advertising student’s project is “sexist, voyeuristic and pervy.” It’s a fake Calvin Klein billboard featuring a woman wearing a white blouse. In the sunshine the white blouse looks normal, but when it rains the billboard morphs and reveals the model’s black bra underneath, like a real white blouse would if it were to get wet. Clever, huh?
We’re no Don Draper or Peggy Olson, but we think the two advertising students behind this project were really thinking outside the box with this idea. According to the duo, they hoped their idea would “give a life to Calvin Klein’s sexy feeling.” This billboard certainly accomplishes that goal. What do you think? Tell us in the comments.

One-finger name rings went out of style eons ago, but we’d still rock a 3-D ring. The minute we saw this Love Ring by Chutapat Wittaya we were in love. We especially like how the letters seem to be exploding from the finger. The only problem is that we can’t choose between the gold-tone, which fits into our ’80s nostalgia mode, or the silver-tone, which has an ethereal feel. [$69, Desingboom] Keep reading »
Have a taste for the strange? Feeling a bit dark? In the mood for something ghoulish yet glittery? Check out this hand-jewelry created by twentysomething-year-old designer Delfina Delettrez Fendi, a fourth-generation member of the Fendi family. For a mere $24,000, you can own this jewel-encrusted piece of wearable art that’s part bracelet, part ring, and part exposed human anatomy. It’s a bit like the unique hand-piece Lorraine Schwartz designed for Beyonce that you can see here, but this one’s more romantic than robotic. Ectoplasmosis observes: “You’ll be the envy of just everyone as you sway to the strains of Sisters of Mercy, twenty-four thousand dollars of jewel encrusted carpals and silver metacarpals shining under the dim, dim lights.” If you could afford it, would you rock it?

“I am an Aquarius (born Feb. 13th 1982) and my boyfriend is a Taurus (April 21st 1972). We’ve been together a few months and I have feelings for him, but his behavior confuses me. At first, he was all flowers and calling for no reason, but now he hardly ever calls. When we do meet it’s wonderful and he’s so loving! He sometimes talks about wanting to travel or buy a house, then casually asks me if I’d join him; but at the same time, he hasn’t planned our next rendez-vous himself for a while now. I feel rejected and neglected when he acts this way, but I’m afraid of scaring him off and being too needy if I say anything. So, I’m wondering if we went too fast at first, if he’s losing interest and is afraid to tell me, or if he’s maybe just trying to back off and see if I’m ‘the one’ or what?? So confused!” – Aquarius Lady Keep reading »
I know it’s hard to focus on anything but the sparkly stuff, but the man behind Kate is actually “Little Britain’s” David Williams. (Who knew that dude was a ladies’ man?) He took the model out last night for a sushi dinner and dancing, and we bet he had no problems getting her out of this f#&%-me spacesuit! Glam, bam, thank you, ma’am. [London, 4/22/09] Keep reading »
