Istanbul Cab Drivers Are Also Belly Dancers And Stunt Men


My boyfriend and I are trying to plan a romantic getaway over Thanksgiving, so we spent our Saturday internet-researching possible destinations and hotels. Near the top of our list was Istanbul, so to get a better feeling for the city, we checked out some videos from the Lonely Planet travel guides. Here’s what we found: a crazy Istanbul cabbie who belly dances while driving (and outside your window while in traffic) and performs insane stunts. Check it out for a good Monday morning chuckle. (And for the record: we’ve whittled it down to Prague and Lisbon—the dancing cabbie had nothing to do with crossing Istanbul off the list.) [YouTube] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Evil Genie Pants

These $88 “genie pants,” part of the Heidi Klum for New Balance collection, are giving me severe middle school flashbacks. My PE teacher wore a very similar pair of heather gray sweats every day as she forced us to do endless laps on the track and laughed as I writhed helplessly on the pull-up bar. At one point she caught wind of my underground revolution urging my classmates to “stroll the mile” rather than run, and she made me sit alone in a corner for the rest of the semester. Who knew she would one day inspire a supermodel to design a capsule collection? Keep reading »

For The Week Of October 11-17, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

What you say will sound sane to you, but to another, it will come out as the wackiest bunch of words ever. Sure, you’ll know this is a communication snafu, but this other person is most likely looking to start a fight and will blow it out of proportion. Whatever chain of events it begins, realize it has to run its course — the destination will make sense of it all.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Don’t be alarmed if your feelings take a plunge into the dark side and have you fighting off a major bout of self-doubt. As one part of your life goes up, seems another will go down, throwing off your balance and leaving you to wonder what you really want. Avoid beating yourself up, because the answers will come only with patience.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You’re born under the most intense sign of the zodiac and that means you don’t let anything go without a fight. However, when you’re grappling with your demons, the harder you fight, the more of a chokehold they’ll have. For now, the path of least resistance is best, as they are only as strong as you want to make them, and this week, they’re out to suck you dry.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You don’t have to have all the answers all the time. It can be best to feel your way through the dark, as sometimes you hit upon something that feels irresistible but you’ll disregard it due to it being so far from your plan. This time around, the less you know, the more surprises are in store. So, forget you know anything and all will be just dandy!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Just because you can get others to support you, that doesn’t make you right. So, forget the power in numbers theory when it comes to getting into a battle with your baby this week. No matter how much validation you can conjure up for yourself, the one vote that matters won’t budge. So, focus on the issues, rather than making it a fight for popularity.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Forget getting approval on whom you want to love and how you want to do it. If you waited for everyone’s understanding, you’d never get anywhere, as we don’t live in a perfect world. However, in time, life always changes, and things always do work themselves out. So, for now understand your circumstances are not set in stone and don’t get too caught up in the drama.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pressure on yourself to make new initiatives with love this week, because this is going to be a time when your ability to laugh at yourself will be tested, as there will be many random foibles that’ll wear on your patience. However, if you survive this now, you will see that light at the end of this ridiculous tunnel while getting the last laugh.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Be careful of where you place your trust, because not everyone making offers will be on the up-and-up – they can use their words deceptively. Not to say you aren’t one shrewd bunny, but who doesn’t get delusional when bombarded with loving words that are out to make one feel as if they are untouchable? So, your rule of thumb this week: if it sounds too good to be true, it is.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

There will be some backtracking when it comes to how deeply you want to be committed right now. This might be a temporary phase or it might not be. Whichever it is, it will take time to draw a final conclusion. Be patient and work slowly; drastic moves will result in egg in your face and possibly a deep pain in your heart.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

This week you’ll have no patience for anyone. It’ll seem as if incompetence surrounds you and occupies all your time, as you relentlessly have to make up for those around you. While you will feel like it’s a thankless week, realize you aren’t insane. In lieu of the madness, feel free to spoil yourself rotten, because at least you know how to make yourself feel good.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The truth can be so subjective, especially when bending it can play nicely in your favor. Yes, this is the week when you’ll have to believe what you say with all your heart, even if it’s not the complete truth, because if you can come across like a believer, it’ll be so much easier to get that other to see the same. This week it’s more about the performance than the substance.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Cohabiting is going to get more intense; as every day is a day you’re going to have compromise your way through. As the pressure builds and you feel your space closing in on you, don’t feel like you have to just take it. Instead, take a time-out to draw up new rules. It’s your life, your relationship and it’s your choice to take the road less traveled.
