This Week In Terribleness: Woman Dies In Cubicle

Los Angeles woman, 51-year-old Rebecca Wells, died in her cubicle at work two Fridays ago. All of her co-workers left for the weekend without saying goodbye. “She was always working. Always working,” a co-worker said. It took an entire day before her body was discovered slumped over her desk at the Los Angeles County Department of Internal Services where she was an auditor. The cause of death is still unknown. I’m not trying to bring you all down. This is so depressing, I know. Think of this as motivation to quit your job if you hate it. Nobody deserves to die in their cubicle, nobody. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

6 Music Videos With Obvious Product Placement

So what’s the deal with all the product placement in music videos these days? Sure Britney’s video earlier today was filled with subtle – and not so subtle – references to products available on the market. So what’s the deal?

According to a report released last summer by PQ Media, a research firm, the money spent on product placement in recorded music grew 8 percent in 2009 compared with the year before, while overall paid product placement declined 2.8 percent, to $3.6 billion.

Revenue from product placement in music videos totaled $15 million to $20 million last year, more than double the amount in 2000.

Mila Kunis To Be The Wicked Witch Of The West

Mila Kunis will get you, my pretty, and your little dog too. The “Black Swan” actress is apparently in talks to play Theodorah in “Oz, The Great and Powerful,” the prequel to the “Wizard of Oz” which will star James Franco and be directed by Sam Raimi of “Spiderman” fame. So why don’t you recognize the name ‘Theodorah’? Because she’s more commonly known by her title—the Wicked Witch of the West. The movie will be telling the story not only of how the Wizard ended up over the rainbow, but how Glinda and the Wicked Witches arrived at their posts, too. I am a total sucker for all things Oz, so yes, I am very excited for this movie. Emerald City, or bust. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

4 Tips For Women Who Want To Make The First Move

Kim, fresh out of a relationship with football player Miles Austin, is single for the show and ready to mingle. But, like many of us, she believes in the traditional idea that the guy is supposed to ask the girl out. And so she waits.

While we understand Kim’s desire to be pursued (I mean, who doesn’t want that, to some degree?), she doesn’t necessarily have to be so passive about it. Modern dating rules make it OK for a woman to make the first move and we’re quite glad that’s the case. To boot, men love it when we ask them out, so here are four ways to help you do just that.
