Breathe a sign of relief if you were one of those people who couldn’t get a break in love, money, or even squeezing out a good hair day in the last month. The good news is there was a reason for that mayhem: Venus was in retrograde, a trying period when all things dealing with love, beauty and pleasure go haywire. Your moods swing between emotional extremes, while also, at times, skewing your vanity. However, November 18th marked the day when the insanity officially ended, giving us just one more week of its aftershocks before fully subsiding its dastardly power, which took hold on October 8th in intense Scorpio. (It then re-entered indecisive Libra on November 7th, where it will stay until November 29th, until it returns to Scorpio until January 7th, 2011, which is an extra long and sexy place to be!)

Rebellion against the new TSA airport security measures is beginning to escalate. People are already pulling stunts, inventing protective pasties, and this coming Wednesday (“Opt Out Day”) promises to bring the drama (we’re secretly dying to see what happens even though it’s sure to cause a major air travel hassle). For those who wish to protest a bit more peacefully, there are now also underwear options thanks to Rocky Flats Gear, a company that produces undergarments for both men and women (bras, panties, tighty-whities) with strategically placed x-ray-blocking fig leaves. When you go through the full body scanner at the airport, the patches block the image, so you can attempt to retain some dignity. Of course, these might prove useless if the TSA thinks you’re hiding something and then forces you into the pat down. Worth a try though, maybe? [Rocky Flats Gear] Keep reading »
Recently, The Daily Beast has kept a careful eye on the small screen, tallying the number of drinks imbibed during primetime television shows. No, they’re not conducting some parent watchdog study—they’re just trying to determine who’s the biggest drunk on TV. Kara Cutruzzula rewatched the entirety of season four of “Mad Men” to determine just how many drinks the folks at Sterling Cooper Draper Price consumed. Not surprisingly, Don Draper came out in the lead with 78 and a half drinks downed during the season. Of course, he does get the most screen time.
Now every week, Kara charts the bevs consumed on other TV shows—from “Gossip Girl” to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta“—to see if anyone can drink Don under the table. Keep reading »
