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 »

Confessions Of A Video Vixen Goes Visual

You remember the book, don’t you? It was a New York Times best seller penned by Karrine Steffans, the infamous groupie who managed to get her claws — or, more to the point, her mouth — on every major rapper, from Sean “Puffy” Combs to Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. She’s now lauched a DVD appropriately titled, “Kiss and Tail: The Hollywood Jump Off.” While she does rehash the same old story of how she, er, climbed her way to the top of the groupie ladder, she adds another dimension: interviews from her famous conquests. Akon, Ja Rule and Big Boi of Outkast are a few of the many artists and actors who give their side of the story on the DVD. The video is available right now at Best Buy of all places for only $14.99.

Legendary Thespian Penises: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Legendary Celeb Penises

We still feel that Michael Fassbender and his penis were robbed of an Oscar nom for their work in “Shame.” I mean, come on, their performances were unprecedented! Even Charlize Theron agrees. “Your penis was a revelation. I’m available to work with it any time,” she joked at a recent Human Rights Campaign gala. “I have to say that I was truly impressed that you chose to play it big … Most other actors would have gone small, trust me. I know because I’ve worked with them,” Theron went on. Since its full frontal appearance in the film, Fassbender’s member has gained notoriety in Hollywood for its largesse. Sexiest Man Alive, George Clooney even sounded slightly jealous. He followed up Theron’s endorsement of Fassbender’s peen with a joke about him being able to play golf with his “hands tied behind his back.” Now that’s talent!

Lower Abortion Rates By Paying Women To Stay Pregnant? I Think Not.

Last week, The New York Times uploaded a “Bloggingheads” discussion between Slate writer William Saletan and Beliefnet’s Steve Waldman, on the topic of reducing abortions. The ideas that arise from the discussion are slightly terrifying, and are therefore worthy of more discussion. Keep reading »

Is Height The New Weight?

Lately we’ve been talking a lot about height. Ali has written two pieces in the last few days, about how to amplify your height (if you’re on the shorter side) and the height issues that can come up in relationships. We also posted part of an essay from a woman about being tall and how it impacts her dating life. Many of your comments on these posts had to do with your own insecurities about your height, whether you’re “tall” or “short.” Meanwhile, Meryl Streep, who plays Julia Child in the upcoming film “Julie and Julia,” says about the famous chef’s 6’2 height, “I mean, it’s like having club foot … it was a handicap of sorts, certainly in the world where she was born.” Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Sarah Silverman Won’t Make Fat Jokes

“I don’t like fat jokes about women. Men can take it because we live in a society where fat men still deserve love, still can be respected. Fat women are treated (in the white culture, anyway) like s**t, and it bums me out.
