Shopping Guide: 10 Super Cozy Double-Breasted Cardigans

Well, we’ve reached mid-January, or as I like to call it, “The time of the year I seriously question my decision to move to New York from sunny California where the temperatures rarely dip below 55 degrees.” I’m cold. I like to meditate on the imaginary feeling of the sun warming my bare shoulders. It took me years of living on the East Coast to actually understand the concept of layering, but I’m still angered by any season that would cause my bare toes to freeze and fall off. New York City, I love you, but winter can go to hell and stay there.

If winter did go to hell, there would be a couple things I would miss, of course. Fresh snow. Good hair (it stays stick straight this time of year). And cozy, comfy, warm knit sweaters. For this slideshow, I compiled 10 double-breasted cardigans at various price points — I love their old man vibe. Dress them up at night with a flouncy dress, tights, and heels, or dress them down on the weekends with jeans, hoop earrings, and a T. I’m feeling warmer already.

Cameron Diaz Bought Weed From Snoop Dogg In High School

“We went to high school together. He was a year older than me … I remember him, he was very tall and skinny, wore lots of ponytails on his head. And I’m pretty sure I bought weed from him.”

Cameron Diaz tells George Lopez about going to the same school as Snoop Dogg. I am now trying to picture cheerleader Cameron rolling a spliff. [People] Keep reading »

Yesterday, independent film’s glitterati bundled up in their sweaters and ear muffs for the start of the Sundance Film Festival. And since we all know that today’s Sundance movies are tomorrow’s breakout hits and the movies we’ll all be betting on come next year’s award season, here are eight movies on the lineup that have me salivating. Here’s hoping they’ll be in theaters soon.

“Project Nim”: Back in the 1970s, scientists conducted an experiment an a young chimp named Nim. If they raised him like a human, would he learn to communicate using sign language? In this doc, brought to you by the guy who made the amazing “Man on Wire,” you’ll find out how it went down — and say “awwww” a bunch. [The Guardian]

Is Pink’s Video For “F**king Perfect” Exploitative Of Cutters? Or Seriously Addressing Self-Harm?


Pink‘s music videos are nothing but provocative — and that’s why I love her. “F**king Perfect” is an angst-ballad about loving and respecting oneself, but the NSFW video, which appeared online yesterday, is all about a young women’s self-hatred. She snorts drugs, shoplifts, and in one gruesome scene, cuts the word “PERFECT” in her arm with a razor blade.

A friend DMed me this morning about Pink’s video, calling it “exploitation disguised as empowerment,” “highly uninformed,” and done for “shock value.” I agree that, standing alone, a woman cutting the word “PERFECT” into her arm with a razor blade is over-the-top and gratuitous. But in this particular video, with this particular song, it works. And I’m willing to forgive it being a little too gratuitous because I think she’s ultimately depicting a very real problem that young women experience. Keep reading »

Woman Nearly Dies Of A Hickey

We all know hickies are embarrassing to receive if you’re over the age of 14, but turns out they can also be dangerous. A 44-year-old New Zealand woman was rushed to the emergency room for a hickey gone awry. The trouble all started when her lover sucked her neck one night while they were sitting on the couch watching television. Only his technique was a little too aggressive. He hoovered her so vigorously that he created a blood clot near a major artery in her neck. The clot then broke off and moved into her heart causing a minor stroke. She only knew she was having a stroke when she started experiencing paralysis on her left side. With treatment, the clot disappeared and the woman’s movement was restored. Moral of the story: I will be wearing a “Do Not Disturb” sign around my neck during all future makeout sessions. For reals, hickies are totally unnecessary AND unsafe. If you are compelled to hoover another person’s body, please hoover with care. [Stuff] Keep reading »
