Jim Morrison’s Posthumous Peen Pardon

Forty years after the fact, the state of Florida is pardoning Jim Morrison for an incident that took place in March of 1969. Allegedly, the “Lizard King” exposed his lizard and simulated oral sex while The Doors were performing for a large crowd in Miami. How rock star of him. He was convicted of indecent exposure and public profanity, which earned him six months in jail and a fine. Jim died while his appeal was pending, but now his legacy lives on untarnished. If he is in hiding somewhere, as some conspiracy theorists believe, now would be a good time for him to reenter society, with a clean record. [Post On Politics] Keep reading »

8 Celebs Who Married Fans

married to fan danny bonaduce jpg
Danny Bonaduce married his former fan, Amy Railsback—who is now his manager—in Maui right before Thanksgiving. Actually, I should re-phrase that. He found out he was marrying her. She planned the wedding. He only knew about it because a wedding planner from the hotel called to ask Amy some questions. When he found out about the nuptials, he agreed and even purchased skull and cross bones rings for the occasion. Awwww. The two met at Starbucks three years ago when Railsback, who was a substitute teacher at the time, complimented him on his reality show “Breaking Bonaduce.” Well, if she saw the show then she knew what she was getting into. I’m hoping this marriage goes better than his first two. [NY Daily News]

John Galliano Had No Idea What Online Shopping Was

“Online shopping — oh, no. I didn’t even know what e-commerce was until last week. I like the experience. I like to feel the fur, to smell the tweed. I like the service. I love that you go into Hermès wearing your trainers and they still say, ‘Oh Mr. Galliano, may we brush your shoes?’ … I get people to [tweet] for me. When I was here last, I was only here for four or five days and there were 30,000 calls or whatever you call them … Yeah, there were 30,000. They had nothing to do with Dior, nothing to do with [the company] John Galliano. Just what I look like when I leave the hotel, or people had seen me in a restaurant or going to the gym. Thirty thousand! That’s a lot. I could advertise on that site. I think we need to exploit that, don’t you?”

John Galliano goes from not knowing anything about online shopping to trying to figure out how to exploit Twitter in a matter of days. Oh, and he also calls information technology “machinery.” [The Cut] Keep reading »

Why He’ll Never Understand Your Pregnancy

Pregnancy, for a dad, can feel like an awkward office-party where you’re the new employee. It’s as though you have to paste on a forced smile that you have to wear for months. Not fake, just forced. The feeling is completely sincere — you are genuinely pleased and happy (if you like your partner and want for her to be pregnant, that is, and even sometimes if not) — but you feel the need to show it outwardly in ways that don’t feel natural.

A Brief But Fond History Of A Jacket, Plus A Super Fast DIY!

Originally bought by my best friend in the mid-’90s while she was in high school, if this Calvin Klein Jeans jacket could talk, oh the stories it would tell. Fortunately, for my girlfriend and me, it can’t talk, so our secrets are safe. But the history still shows through its frayed hems, missing buttons, and crinkled body — things that make me love it even more. This jacket has been everywhere from rock concerts to breakup sceness and everything in between. Every fall, I get excited to throw it on, and it never disappoints; the classic lines and military green color are tried and true and it has a relaxed, cool, effortlessly chic vibe. But what about when fall turns into winter, temperatures drop, and lighter jackets get put away until spring? May I suggest DIYing it? Take a look after the jump to see how you can stylishly bring a lighter jacket into winter with you, and then tell us, do you have a favorite article of clothing that’s been with you through thick and thin?
