This week, Jon and I wanted to listen to Scarlett Johansson’s cover of Tom Waits’ “Falling Down.” He would make comments about ScarJo’s hotness. I would make comments about how she sounds like a man. It was going to be great. But Jon must download a lot of porn on his computer or something, because he couldn’t even get the video to load. Instead, we listened to Santogold, who we both adore.
Catherine: This is scary.
Jon: Some kind of Ichabod Crane look going here. She looks like a cult leader. Keep reading »
Bad dates suck. But letâ€™s face it, after a certain length of time, they can be pretty funny in retrospect. In honor of the grand tradition of laughing uproariously at disastrous dates, weâ€™re taking submissions for The Bad Date Hall Of Fame. Send yours to firstname.lastname@example.org â€“ and if we publish yours, weâ€™ll send you a pair of Frisky underpants. After the jump, a bad date keeps his apartment under lockdown — find out what’s he hiding. Keep reading »
Last night’s American Idol was fun, and not because the final five all sang songs by the king of karaoke, Neil Diamond. No, last night was fun because it featured the return of crazy, confused Paula Abdul. I’ve missed her this season! Keep reading »
Some young man wrote Debonair Magazine about graduating from college and not being able to get any ladies in the real world.
I have been out of school for about 18 months now and I’m missing the fraternity party days and how it easy was to hook up with a girl. How do you recommend picking up a girl in a bar? I feel that women that go out often are all so full of themselves, only want a free drink, and just don`t respond to anyone unless they`re great looking. — Disgruntled
Some of the advice given is as abominable as the “problem.” After the jump is the worst of it. Keep reading »
Nothing causes more boners than an action movie — especially when it stars a femme fatale who knows how to handle a gun. Everyone loves a sharp shootinâ€™, straight talkinâ€™ lady whose looks alone could kill, but itâ€™s even better when sheâ€™s actually a trained lethal weapon. In honor of the women who inspire us to fight for our rights (and wear something skin tight), here are The Friskyâ€™s Top 5 Female Action Heroes.
5. Jane Fonda as Barbarella Sheâ€™s bold, sheâ€™s blonde, and she wonâ€™t take no for an answer. The stylish mod manhandler battles her way through the universe with a dozen outfits and one ray gun. Keep reading »
Catherine and I disagree on very few things — the musical talent of The Counting Crows, meat, this song, and perhaps the notion of Scarlett Johansson fancying herself a popstar all together. This is the video for the first single off Scarlett’s upcoming album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, in which most of the songs are Tom Waits covers. I love Tom Waits so I should hate this whole stupid idea. But I don’t. Keep reading »
My friend Sarah and I are obsessed with neon nails. I have to give Sarah a little credit though, because she started wearing hot pink as her signature nail color way before any of us had even heard of Rihanna — back then, that girl was still singing “Hero” in Barbados. So, day-glo polish is awesome, but the problem with them is that they’re usually cheap (I bought mine at Claire’s) and therefore require you to apply three coats, and then, the polish chips off in a day. Starting in June, however, both Essie and Chanel will offer high-quality neon nails. This is wonderful news for those of us who are too old to be shopping for beauty products in a store that sells fuzzy Cheetah Girls headbands. [Chic & Untroubled]
