What The Life Of A Hoarder Looks Like

We all sort of gape in horror at the people on those home organization shows like HGTV’s “Mission: Organization” and TLC’s “Clean Sweep” but sometimes, the overcollection of stuff is no laughing matter. For some, the collection of stuff gets so out of control it becomes a legit compulsion and disease called hoarding. People can hoard stuff, food and even (sadly) animals. The new installation on the main floor of the Museum of Modern Art takes a closer look at one woman’s life as a compulsive hoarder—it’s a public viewing of her life-long collection. Keep reading »

Tina Fey And “30 Rock” Get Rich(er)

Yay! Everyone’s favorite Palin-impersonating, geeky-smart, bespectacled, funny gal is about to get a whole lot richer. Emmy winner Tina Fey’s hilarious show, “30 Rock,” whose commercial success has only recently started to catch up to its critical acclaim has been sold for syndication — where the real money is. Comedy Central and WGN outbid E! and TBS for rights to pay Universal Media Studios a combined $800,000 per episode, to air the show five nights a week beginning in a little over two years. For a show that’s been on the brink of cancellation, despite its many awards and critical acclaim, this is an astounding victory. If NBC is successful in securing buys from local stations as it’s trying to do, Tina Fey is pretty much guaranteed the comfiest of retirements when she decides to take one. We just hope that doesn’t happen for a LONG time. A new episode of the show, we’d be happy to see sooner rather than later, though. [via Variety via Vulture] Keep reading »

What Equipment Should You Use To Film Yourself Having Sex?

The editors over at Gizmodo asked their readers a question yesterday: “What Is The Best Technology To Use When You Film Yourself Having Sex?” Being that it’s a tech blog with a savvy readership, you would think the commenters would have some wise suggestions for creating videos in the bedroom. Not so much. Here’s a collection of the commenters’ advice (and cluelessness) about homemade sex tapes. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: What’s Wrong With The Word “Panties,” Anyway?

It was a total misunderstanding that one time I bought a woman I was dating sexy lingerie, the slinky, lacy kind that looked like it was made out of the doilies that decorated my grandmother’s beloved sofa. She thought I was disingenuously buying her a gift that was really a gift for me. I protested, of course, because it was never my idea to veer into Victoria Secret’s during one of our weekend shopping excursions that were theoretically about her training me to be, if not fashion forward, then at least fashion neutral. A happy compromise, considering I, apparently, was clinging to late-’90s fashion like a koala bear to the last eucalyptus tree on Earth. But, in fact, these sprees were about her dragging me by the throat to store after store.

Blind Dates And Texting Don’t Mix — Or Do They?

Over at Double X, there’s this truly hilarious essay by Kelly Seal, who explains how she found herself apologizing to someone she was supposed to go on a date with, before they ever met, via text messaging. How and why? Seal and “Doug1968” met online dating and exchanged a few emails before setting up an in-person date. As has become incredibly typical of modern dating rituals, they opted to firm up their plans via text message. That’s when things got tricky. Keep reading »

New Clutch Helps Celebs Beat Paparazzi At Their Own Game

Most of us insignificant peons have no idea what it’s like to be hounded by the paps. And I on occasion have thought celebs should just suck it up because if no one cares about you, then your celebrity is over. But they can soon mount a counter defense against the paparazzi: Adam Harvey is the genius behind the Anti-Paparazzi Clutch that gives off a bright flash when it detects a flash from a camera. The result is an obscured photo, which for the paps means no check. The clutch will have a limited release in early Spring 2010. Until then, annoyed celebrities will continue to scowl and hide behind a hood or bodyguard. Or they could just render paparazzi photos useless by hiring a photog to follow them, and then give the photos to the tabloids. [Ed Note: SNAP.] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Sued For Stealing Self-Tanner Formula

With Lindsay Lohan’s first movie in ages, “Labor Pains,” set to debut on ABC Family in just a few weeks, things were looking up for the struggling starlet, at least besides the whole made-for-TV-movie thing. That was until she was slammed with a lawsuit for stealing the formula for her sunless tanning spray, Sevin Nyne. While the $35, Sephora-sold mixture did prove to turn the folks over at PopEater orange, the new suit claims that LiLo didn’t have any hand in making the concoction. Keep reading »

OMFG: Fifth Grade Teacher Sends Kids Home With a DVD—With A Clip Of Her Naked!

Oh, look how cute, little Jimmy, on his class trip! Hey, look at Suzy raising her hand in class! Uhhh, is that Miss Defanti? What is she doing? Why yes, kids, that is your fifth-grade teacher lying naked in bed with her legs spread wide open. Crystal Defanti, a fifth-grade teacher from Sacramento, California, gave her twenty-five students a DVD to take home at the end of the school year. The DVD showed a years worth of class activities….but also an eight-second clip of her lying naked with her legs spread. All a huge horrifying mistake (for everyone involved—imagine having to explain to your fifth-grader what she was doing?), the teacher hadn’t realized that her homemade sex video was on the tape and called the families hysterically the next morning, sobbing, apologizing and asking them to stop any further students from viewing it. Beyond mortifying. Keep reading »

Is Kristen Stewart Pregnant With Robert Pattinson’s Baby?!?!

Robert Pattinson‘s rumored secret lover, Kristen Stewart, should consider going into hiding. She’s already getting hate mail from Twilighters for dating the sexy vampire man. Now, an Australian tabloid is reporting that Stewart is actually carrying R-Patz’s baby. The paper’s source said, “When [Stewart] worked out she was late, she obviously started to thinking that she could be pregnant. And because of the timing, she thinks Rob could be the father.” A picture of Stewart rocking a baby bump is also shown. Of course, there’s no word yet from the reps on whether this is true. But what do you think about the possibility of a “New Moon” love child? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
