It’s new music Tuesday! This week, there’s a whole lotta tuneage goin’ on. Elvis Costello is offering up some ransom; Weezer tries to kill fake metal with pop scraps; N.E.R.D. got something real fresh and hot; Matt & Kim take a stroll down Sidewalks; The Autumn Defense backs off of Wilco; The High Dials turn things up; and Good Charlotte finds a rock doctor. So get those headphones on, girl, and let’s get into the groove after the jump … Keep reading »
I may not have a baby (yet!), but I’m still completely obsessed with this scooter/stroller hybrid created by award-winning Austrian inventor, Valentin Vodev. With the click of a switch, the Roller Buggy transforms from your usual baby stroller into a scooter capable of going up to 10 miles per hour. As soon as this becomes available to the masses (please, oh please), I’m getting one because I’m pretty sure my dog Lucca would fit securely in the front seat until Baby McDonell-Parry-Gosling comes into the world. Check the Roller Buggy in action, after the jump! Keep reading »
Look, Rachel McAdams is gorgeous; there’s no denying that. There’s also no denying that she’s one of the luckiest girls ever: She dated Ryan Gosling after all. But we’re not about hating here — we’re about appreciating her incredible laid-back style and beauty. In celebration of her new film, “Morning Glory,” (which looks like “Working Girl” for the aughts), we’ve trotted out a collection of some of RM’s best looks. Check out her finest sartorial moments after the jump.

The number of ways to refer to a vagina as “just a place to put a penis” might alarm me if I actually believed anyone other than Penthouse letter writers refer to my beautiful ladyflower as “beef curtains.” [Feministing] Keep reading »
Yesterday I was thrilled to leave work early and attend Glamour magazine’s “Love Your Life” conference, held at New York City’s 92nd St Y. I only got to hear one of the two panel discussions: “Love Your Work Life.” With a lineup including “Top Chef”‘s Padma Lakshmi, designer Anna Sui, makeup guru Bobbi Brown, Dylan’s Candy Bar owner Dylan Lauren, and my old boss, politics blogger Arianna Huffington, who wouldn’t be psyched? The panel, moderated by journalist Deborah Roberts, was supposed to be about “high-achieving women discuss[ing] success and work-life balance.” And while there were some really solid gold pieces of career advice dished out (Anna Sui, adopt me!), I also couldn’t help but feel frustrated by how little I could relate to these women, who are faaar wealthier than the average woman ever will be. Most of us won’t be so lucky, like Padma Lakshmi, to force herself to let her baby’s nanny deal with her crying child.
After the jump, some of the afternoon’s highlights, both good and bad: Keep reading »
