It’s been a pretty exciting year for movies, what with “Black Swan,” “Blue Valentine,” “Catfish,” “The Social Network, ” etc, etc. So, when the Golden Globe Awards announced its nominees this morning, guess which flick got the most nods? “The King’s Speech.” Yep, the movie none of us saw starring Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter.
The “Golden Globe” nominations are often a little wacky, so after the jump, eight more things that surprised us. Keep reading »
Breaking: Willow Smith now has a bowl cut. And despite it looking kind of dorky … it’s kind of dorky in an awesome way. We swear: Willow’s at a point where anything this girl touches turns to gold. (Or at least, A+ hairstyles.) One question. How’s she gonna whip her hair now? Maybe this just goes to show that you don’t need to be a long-haired lady to embrace the hair-whipping mentality.
What do you think of Willow’s new ‘do? Cute? Edgy? Or oh dear? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Concerned Friend” whose pal was obsessed with becoming pregnant, despite (or because of) recent medical issues that made it difficult to conceive. CF wondered how she could be the best friend to her pal during this time — whether she should be realistic with her or “feed into her hope that she’s pregnant.” After the jump, found out how both she and her friend are doing today.

Purple is a color loaded with meaning. At one time symbolizing royalty, it’s also come to be known as one of the colors representing LGBT groups and orgs. It’s more recently taken on a newer political meaning in America—that of bipartisanship. NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg has taken to wearing a purple tie at public events. He says, “Purple is made of two colors, red and blue. Red and blue seem to have some political significance.” Glad to see Mr. Bloomberg has a basic understanding of politics and also passed third grade art. Keep reading »
As Scruffy Beard began unhooking my bra, a panic signal went off in my head. Uh oh, Dater X, I thought to myself. This is your third date and you are straddling him in a chair. Your shirt is across the room, and you can feel his hard-on through his pants. You are on a steam locomotive powering towards sex town. This. Is. Not. Good.
I pulled back, feeling suddenly shy about the fact that I was topless. I looked him in the eyes—definitely his nicest feature, though I’d come to appreciate the rest of his face in the two weeks we’d been dating, too. His gaze seemed filled with adoration and desire, and he leaned forward and kissed me, soft and slow. I felt his hands squeeze around my butt. And that was it. Soon the rest of our clothes hit the floor, our makeout session getting more intense with every kiss and touch. Keep reading »
