NPR Disses Jodi Picoult And Calls Her Books “Lurid”

I love reading. I might love it more than orgasms, sleeping or eating. And I will read anything, high or low, because I’ve enjoyed “smart books” like Katharine Graham’s autobiography as much as “trashy books” like The Other Boleyn Sister. I just can’t stand people who get on their high horse and sniff that a 10th grader could have written Twilight. It was a good read—who cares?

I’ve read two novels by Jodi Picoult—My Sister’s Keeper and Nineteen Minutes—which were both three-hanky reads about suburban families with troubled kids (cancer in one, a school shooting in another). But NPR has a different perspective on the Picoult oeuvre. Keep reading »

Crave: Nerdist “Nice Tweets” Tee

Know how when you’re talking to a guy and his eyes are wandering about eight inches below your mouth you kind of start to think that those tacky “my eyes are up higher” tees are maybe justified? Well, they’re still not. But you can give him something to laugh at (and feel like an ass about) with this nerd girl appropriate “Nice Tweets” tee. Supposedly they’re printed on an “American Apparel shirt so soft, you’ll swear you’re wearing a cloud made of babies.” We don’t hate the sound of that. [$20, Nerdist] Keep reading »

Anna Paquin And Stephen Moyer Box? Other Kinky Celeb Couple Rituals

In an interview with People, hunky “True Blood” vampire Stephen Moyer said that he and his girlfriend/co-star, Anna Paquin, box together for fun. “I like the sport and she likes the blood,” he said. Apparently, Anna can hold her own in the ring. “She won’t stop until she’s gnawed your stumps off. I tell you, my girl is hardcore,” said Moyer. [People]

Wow, this is a little weird. We wonder if these two are confusing their real relationship with their “True Blood” romance? Either way, they are not the only couple that has strange, vaguely kinky, relationship rituals. After the jump, a few other couple with strange habits. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Def Leppard Was Right, Love Hurts

I don’t believe that once a cheater, always a cheater. That specific aphorism is a bitter, moralizing form of self-deception. We all are cheaters; none of us is invulnerable to temptation. What defines a person is not whether they are faithless. It is a simple, easy thing to impulsively take that which you want. No, what defines a person is whether they chose to stay faithful. That is difficult, and that active decision, that vigilance, is the steep price love demands. Keep reading »

Now You Can Zap Your Cramps Away

I’ve never thought of my cramps as particularly debilitating, but even I have had moments when I need something stronger than Midol. (One vacation where I was unable to get out of bed comes to mind.) But there’s a new treatment out there—Allay, a pulsed electromagnetic field therapy device—that could nix period pain forevs. This treatment was originally used for sports injuries—even on racehorses. It works by emitting a low level electromagnetic current to the cells down there, restoring the electrical balance that’s messed up during menstruation. Place the cloth circle on your abdomen behind the elastic of your undies, turn on the switch, and let the currents do their work. Some say Allay works as a placebo, but five cramp-free days is enough motivation to try it. [Daily Mail]

If you’re a little wary of anything used to treat horses, here are some other unconventional remedies that might work for you. Keep reading »

Celebrity Death Rumors Are Just Plain Stupid

I guess it’s no surprise that some people are a little twisted. But ever since Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson died within a span of 72 hours, fake celebrity death stories have started cluttering up the internet. Sites like Twitter and FakeAWish.com, even CNN’s iReport, have created major drama for publicists and sent them scrambling to set the record straight that their clients are very much alive.

I Love My Cell Phone More Than…

How important is your cell phone in your life? I feel like a lost puppy when mine runs out of batteries or I leave it at my apartment, and I am not alone. A survey conducted by Best Buy indicated that most Americans would rather give up alcohol for a week than hand over their cell phone. Sounds about right. If you can live without talking to your friends and family without seven days but can’t handle giving up vodka tonics, you have a problem. Other things respondents said they would rather do for a week than give up their phone: survive on bread and water, give up television, and have their teeth drilled by a dentist. None of this, however, is as surprising as the German survey that found the majority of respondents would rather do without their significant other or car than the internet. We’re a planet of technology addicts! [UPI]

Air New Zealand Does A Nudie Air Safety Video

As airlines across the globe are cutting back services in the economic slump, Air New Zealand gives their customers the “bare essentials.” In a new 45-second ad, the airline features Air New Zealand employees clad in nothing but body paint made to look like uniforms, giving literal meaning to their slogan “the airline with nothing to hide.” The three minute safety video shown on Air New Zealand flights (after the jump) is even better—employees demonstrating how to fasten your seatbelt while trying to keep their own naughty bits covered. The airline used real employees for the campaign, which makes me want to get myself on the next flight to New Zealand even more. [Huffington Post]

Quick Pic: Vintage Coke Can Designs

Coca-Cola is no stranger to makeovers. Yet, these vintage cans are so cool, that maybe the brand should consider going back to one of its old looks. Pop art has never gone out of style. Then again, neither has Coke. [Inspiredology.com] Keep reading »
