Trailer Park: “Red,” “Hereafter,” “Conviction,” “Jackass 3D,” “Marwencol,” “Carlos”

Every day closer to Halloween is another day that I avoid the candy aisles at the drug store so that I don’t end up passed out in a bed of 600 tiny wrappers, drooling chocolate. If you’re suffering from a similar pattern, there’s nowhere better to hide than a movie theater. But they’ve got candy there, you say? Well, hopefully that 400 percent mark-up is enough to deter you. With the exception of “Jackass 3D,” this week brought some pretty heady films to the table and, for the first time in weeks, no horror movies! So go forth and watch. Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills”: This Is Your Face On Botulism

I didn’t think it was possible to top the madness that is those bitches in New Jersey, but “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” may have done it. Last night’s premiere was seriously off-the-hook. Where do I even begin? Oh, how about with the plastic surgery disaster above with Taylor, who paid a visit to Adrienne’s husband for a little botulism. Susannah has informed me that she suspects Taylor isn’t getting the usual Botox, but Dysport, another brand of the stuff that causes those weird facial bubbles you see. Apparently it goes away after 30 minutes, which is a relief, because I am pretty sure that would be the end of Taylor and Adrienne’s friendship.

But temporary facial deformities were only the beginning of the hot mess that was “RHBH”! More, after the jump … Keep reading »

Myth has it that the “fisherman” sweater, characterized by its prominent cable knit design, was used by seamen as a kind of ID card. Some hypothesize that wives knitted these sweaters with designs specific to their family clan so that if their husbands should drown, their bodies could potentially be identified by the knit pattern of his clothing. Creepy! Today, we largely reinterpret these cozy cover-ups as “chunky cable knit sweaters.” Use the ultra-warm goods as fall jackets now, and come winter, layer them to create an armor against cold. Check out our affordable picks after the jump!
