Watch Out, Meryl Streep. There’s A New Robot Actress In Town

Meet Geminoid-F, the robot actress out of Tokyo looking to steal movie roles from human actresses in Tinseltown. The lady bot has already landed her first role in a stage play in the role of an android, which shouldn’t be much of a stretch. The ‘bot is puppetered by a real person back stage who controls the techno-actress’s voice and movements. Her costar says she seems a bit “distant.” Must be all those microchips getting in the way of real emoting. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Heidi Klum Wears Mondo’s Polka-Dot Dress

Throw it on to add interest to an all-black outfit, or take the eclectic look to the max by pairing it with a plaid trench coat and textured hosiery. However you choose to style it, it’s always an attention-grabber.

HuffPo’s New Divorce Section — Smart Idea Or Too Cynical?

This week, the Huffington Post launched a groundbreaking new category of content for a news blog or lifestyle magazine: a section devoted to divorce. Chock-full of advice, how-tos (for navigating the holidays, finding a lawyer, breaking it to the kids, etc.), celeb divorce news, and insightful personal essays, there is no dearth of content on the section’s home page. Editor-at-large Nora Ephron and Arianna Huffington cooked up the idea last summer while hanging out in the Hamptons and have been working to bring it to life ever since … Keep reading »
