Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I didn’t spot much graffiti when I was in London last week — they sure do keep things clean — but on my last day I saw this little heart-shaped block plastered to a brick wall. Pretty fancy for vandalism, eh?
Some folks have gotten their panties in a bunch over Beyonce’s cover for the “Shape Issue” of Vogue. Beyonce is one of only five black women to grace the cover of Vogue since it was founded in 1892, but blogs like Jezebel and Sociological Images think the magazine was being sexist and racist by putting her on the cover. I agree to some extent, but not for their reasons. Keep reading »
I have so many questions as I sit, rapt, through the intro to Monday’s night episode of “Gossip Girl”: Would Dan boink Ol’ Teachy McTeacherson again? Would Serena’s breasts push free of their restrictive corsetry and finally take over the entire screen with their golden magnificence? Would Chuck take his custom-made Saville Row pants off and dance for me and me alone? Keep reading »
A recent article from Men’s Health lays out 16 ways a guy can save his relationship with his lady, most of which are remarkably idiotic. While I agree that talking to your girlfriend rather than you best buddy about your relationship (#8) is probably a good idea, I’m worried that the other 15 suggestions are just leading men down long, lonely roads of cold shoulders and sexless nights. After the jump, a few of the so-called relationship-savers that sound especially destructive. Keep reading »
The French have an uncanny ability to take anything and make it chic — just think about how cute they look toting loaves of bread under their armpits! On Hollywood, Mon Amour, Nouvelle Vague producer Marc Colin takes songs from ’80s movies — “Take my Breath Away” from “Top Gun,” “Don’t you Forget About Me” from “The Breakfast Club,” etc. — and has various singers record them in a way that sounds sexy but simple. After listening to Yael Naim’s rendition of “Flashdance What A Feeling,” you will never again associate that song with oversized, off-the-shoulder sweatshirts or Jennifer Beals’ fancy footwork.

What do you do when your show’s ratings are slipping/your career is tanking? Duh. You go lesbo for five minutes. “Desperate Housewives,” deep in its fifth season slump, hoped a little girl-on-girl smooch would reel in ratings, so Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria Parker swapped spit in Sunday’s episode. We’ll soon see if it worked. “I’m a great kisser,” Eva Longoria Parker told Us Weekly. “She was not supposed to kiss back, so [Hatcher] was kind of just there, and I had to do all the work.” Progressive social commentary or skanky publicity stunt? No brainer. Keep clicking for our favorite desperate lesbian moments.

Let’s face it. Most websites suck. Doncha think? Generally, I especially loathe those wear-their-gimmick-on-their-sleeve sites, the ones that were created just so someone could get a book deal. But I love me some This Is Why You’re Fat. It’s hardcore, wet and sloppy, extreme, take-no-prisoners, get down and dirty food porn. And I, for one, cannot get enough of it. If you’re looking to drool over photographs of the most over the top food assemblages ever created, this is the omnivore pornography for which you have spent your whole life waiting. Co-created by Frisky contributors Richard Blakeley (of Gawker) and his girlfriend, Urlesque‘s Jessica Amason, this is the next food movement — 21st century shameless gluttony! — waiting to happen. After the jump, a few of my obscene favorites. Keep reading »
Contrary to what’s going on here in the U.S., sales of sex toys, massage oils, and other kinky stuff have declined in France, according to vendors at Big Eropolis, an erotic fair near Paris. Attendance has been about the same as last year, said the fair’s organizer, but visitors are buying less. “We always managed to sell [customers] two or three items,” said a vendor. “Now, alas, they leave with one single item. We feel the impact.” To some visitors, the decline in sales didn’t make sense because people tend to like having fun at home during a recession, which is why sex toy sales have jumped in the U.S. Maybe the French are just more ingenious than Americans and don’t need toys? Or maybe there has been a spike in banana and cucumber sales, instead. [Reuters] Keep reading »
