Why He Disappeared After Sex

If I had a dime for every time I’ve heard a woman moan about how she thought things were going great with a guy only for him to disappear the minute she slept with him, well, drinks would be on me this weekend. Luckily, the guys over at Truth Merchants are dealin’ their “daily dose of reality” and spelling it out so I don’t have to. After the jump, their top three reasons a guy splits after he hits.

Sweet Ride: Accessories To Trick Out Your Bike

Here in The Frisky’s hometown of New York City, fresh bike lanes have been popping up all over the place. It’s great to finally see some initiative to make NYC more green, and we can only hope that we’d one day become a new Amsterdam. Well, historically we are already, but perhaps now we could become a new, new Amsterdam. As more and more people jump on the bike wagon, the next logical step would be to make it your own. Induce bike-envy with these hot accessories:

  1. A-tisket, a-tasket, you wouldn’t want any old bike basket. Get girly with this crocheted design. [$70, Marie-Louise Gustafsson, Aplusrstore.com]
  2. Adidas recently launched Zeitfrei, a line of bike shoes that are already super in-demand with the hard-core cyclists. You might have to take to eBay. [$198, Adidas, Store.hypebeast.com]
  3. Look stylish holding your bike lock with a snazzy holster. [$24.57, Cyclodelic, Amy-Fleuriot.com]
  4. This pretty-in-pink helmet makes us want to deck our ride out with streamers, too.[$98.30, Sawako Furuno, Cyclefashion.co.uk]

Stripper Kicks Man In The Head. Plus, Other XXX Lawsuits.

There’s a reason men are not allowed to touch strippers. Florida resident Michael Ireland was promptly (and rightfully) kicked in the head after forcefully slapping the butt of stripper Sakeena Shageer, aka “Suki,” at Cheetah nightclub in West Palm Beach last September. Ireland is now suing the club—he says the kick broke some bones and gave him permanent double vision, though the Cheetah’s owner denies that “little Suki” could have done that much damage. Hey, at least with his vision, Ireland’s next strip club visit will be a 2-for-1 show.

Strip clubs get sued all the time and often for equally wonky reasons. After the jump, some other ridiculous XXX lawsuits. And yes, many of them involve lucite heels. Keep reading »

Take A Drag: Cigarettes You Can Wear, Not Smoke

cigarette fashion 060409 g8 jpg
We would never condone cigarette smoking, but lately designers and craftsmen have been doing some really interesting things with fags:

  1. Dee and Ricky‘s Lego Smuff Pins
  2. Sarah Lucas’ Cigarette “F*ck Me” Shoes
  3. Bland’s Cigarette Hairpiece
  4. Damien Hirst’s “The Abyss” Sculpture

Sadly, these items aren’t readily available (the Hirst sculpture was auctioned at Sotheby’s). But here’s some other cigarette-inspired jewelry — and socks !? — if you don’t want to entirely give up your cancer stick-addiction.

Where She Goes, Everybody Knows Thanks To Signal Jacket

At the risk of seeming totally un-hipster (which, would make me more hipster? Like, whatever…), I don’t ride a bike. I would like to, but I am terrified. And riding around in the dark? Forget it. This new invention by Leah Buechley, however, gives me hope and calms my fears. A sweatshirt outfitted with flashing LED lights on the back (connected to sensors at the edges of the sleeves) allow you to select a left or right turn signal. Pressing both at the same time creates an overall glow to show your presence to drivers.

While not available for purchase yet, DesignBoom tells you how to make one yourself (which seems remarkably uncomplicated). Plus, we’re pretty sure that you bicycle-minded folks are already pretty handy with repairs and such. [Design Boom] Keep reading »

Quickies!: “Kill Bill” Actor David Carradine Found Dead

  • “Kill Bill” star David Carradine, 72, was found dead this morning, hanging from a rope in his closet.[Pop Eater] — RIP Carradine.
  • James Franco bails on giving the UCLA commencement speech–just two weeks before the big day. [Perez] — He claims he has a scheduling conflict, but I think it might have to do with the fact that most of the student body protested against having him as their speaker.
  • Candace Bushnell talks to CNN about her road to success, and the bumps along the way. [CNN]

How Can We Score A Copy Of “Fine: The Basics Of Beauty” DVD?

Sam Fine is a makeup pro whose career has spanned more than 10 years. He’s made up almost everyone, including Tyra Banks, Vanessa Williams, and Jennifer Hudson. So we were totes excited to learn he’s releasing “Fine: The Basics of Beauty,” a DVD version of his Fine Beauty, which promises to help the everyday woman get dolled up and look naturally gorgeous. The makeup master lets us in on the secret to bronze-y skin, pouty lips, and perfectly-arched brows by making up three women with different skin tones and beauty needs. Sounds exciting right? Well, in an evil plot to keep us from becoming our own Sam Fine, his website says the DVD was released last month, but we can’t find it anywhere. Who is this twisted person that would dangle a gem like this in front of our faces, but not deliver? We will keep checking Amazon, because when it comes to looking fine, we won’t be deterred!

  • Emile Hirsch Does Hamlet, Plus Other Teen Takes On The Bard

    “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwick has a new angst-ridden project in the works: a remake of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Emile Hirsch is the tasty choice picked to play the passionate Prince. We can’t wait to see him strut and fret in ye old tight pants. While we’d happily watch the grass grow if irresistible Emile were lying in it, it’s a total bonus that this just happens to be one of our favorite sub genres—a twisted teen take on a Shakesperean classic. Since there’s nothing like a hunk who wants to school us in the ways of love, here are other modern blockbusters that have helped us avoid actually reading Shakespeare.
