Shia LaBeouf. He’s not just some kid caught up in a world war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. He’s also a sensitive music video director who likes to shoot on Super 8. Rumspringa, a Los Angeles-based group that cites influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Grandmaster Flash, is one of the 22-year-old actor’s favorite bands. Last summer, he was at one of their gigs the night he ended up getting into the car accident that wrecked his hand, temporarily endangered his role in the “Transformers” sequel, and resulted in his getting his driver’s license suspended for a year. Perhaps to keep himself out of getting into any more trouble, LaBeouf directed Rumspringa’s latest video: “Mind’s Awake.” Interestingly, the song appeared in another video late last year that focused on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

New mom, Bristol Palin, appeared on Fox News last night to talk about what it’s like to be a new mother, in an interview she scheduled without giving her famous mom, Sarah Palin, much warning.

Kissing might just seem like a way of passing time with the man in your life, but it really triggers a chemical response that promotes mating and reproduction. Helen Fisher, a researcher at Rutgers University in New Jersey, conducted brain imaging studies and believes a kiss, or full-on make-out session, can activate chemicals that arouse different areas of the brain used for sex and reproduction. One brain system locking lips can stimulate is the one related to romantic or passionate love, which Fisher said causes a person to focus on one mate. The second is attachment, which helps prolong the relationship, at least long enough to raise a child. And the third is sex drive, which is related closely to testosterone. “We do have evidence that saliva has testosterone in it. And there is also evidence that men like sloppier kisses, and more open-mouthed kisses. That suggests to me they are unconsciously trying to transfer testosterone to trigger the sex drive in women,” said Fisher. So just when we thought we’d been liberated enough that kissing and sex are random acts of our choosing, our bodies remind us of the true purpose — reproduction. Ugh. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Many black women are quick to point out that there are no good single black men out here. It turns out, they might actually be right, which also may explain why more black women remain unmarried than white women. Forty-two-percent of black women have never been married, compared to 21% of white woman, according to national statistics. That’s double, chicks! Within the last two generations, marriage rates for African-Americans have dropped significantly. Between 1970 and 2001, the black marriage rate dropped by 34 percent, compared to 17 percent in the general population. African-American women are also the least likely group to get married in the United States. That’s pretty sad. And if they wed an African-American man, those couples have the highest divorce rate in the United States. So what the hell is going on?
