The Christmas Tree Of Our Nightmares

When I was little I used to go swimming in a freshwater lake near my parents’ house. Until one day I waded in and saw a dull white eel swimming near the perimeter of the shoreline and was traumatized. I refused to ever go in the lake again. So you can imagine how absolutely thrilled I was to see artist Kazuhiko Minawa’s eel-powered Christmas tree. Says Minawa, “If we could gather up all the electric eels from around the world, we would be able to light up an unimaginably large Christmas tree.” Sure, I’ll get right on that.

The Frisky’s Favorite Holiday Movies

The Frisky's Favorite Holiday Movies

One of the best (and laziest) parts of the holiday season is throwing on your PJs and hunkering down for a holiday movie marathon. The season doesn’t really start until we’ve seen “Elf” and “Scrooged” a couple of times. Here are nine holiday movies that make us laugh, cry, and break out the yuletide cheer.

Dear Wendy: “Should I MOA?”

I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, the last three months of which have been long distance as I had to move for grad school. We only live three hours apart, so we still get to see each other a couple times a month. For most of the last three months, we have been fine — I felt happy, secure, and more fulfilled in a relationship then I ever had been before. However, for the last two or three weeks I just plain feel like I don’t have a boyfriend. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to spend time together recently. Our conversations have not been particularly interesting and I feel like he isn’t putting in a lot of effort. He hardly ever compliments me or returns it when I compliment him, his idea of sympathy is saying “that’s too bad,” and he’s even reticent to return my dirty texts. I feel bad, because he’s not particularly verbally expressive and I feel like I’m being too needy, but I don’t feel content, fulfilled, or even particularly happy right now. I’ve stopped trying because I’m tired of nagging him to be more affectionate and to take initiative. I feel like it would be better if we were actually in the same area code, but moving is not financially possible for him, and there are no graduate programs close to him that I could transfer to. Is there anything I can do or should I just MOA? — Up against a wall

James Franco Was A Cologne Thief In Middle School

“I guess my life of crime started by stealing cologne [in junior high]. We’d keep [cologne sample bottles] in the locker, in our gym locker at school and we’d sell some from the lockers …”

James Franco from his interview on “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” I hope he was stealing/selling Drakkar Noir. That was the only dude scent worth wearing in junior high. I suppose James refers to this as his earliest work of “performance art.” [NY Post] Keep reading »
