Zach Galifianakis Outdoes Himself

We love Zach Galifianakis‘ hilarious “Between Two Ferns” interview series. He always manages to make the interview subject and the audience feel supremely uncomfortable. In this interview with comic Gordon Keith, to promote Zach’s new film “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” the tables are turned. Watch as Zach struggles to compare and contrast his film to “all the other films that have been made.” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Afraid Of Slipping Up” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Afraid of Slipping Up,” who was engaged to a man she adored, but had developed a crush on a colleague. After a few drinks at a work event, said colleague admitted he had feelings for her and tried to kiss her, prompting her to daydream about him incessantly over the next several weeks. After the jump, find out if she discovered a way to manage those daydreams or if she gave into temptation and got frisky with the work hottie. Keep reading »

Is The Problem With Plus-Size Fashion In Fashion Schools?

In the debate about plus sizes in fashion, there seem to be few solutions. Perhaps the place to start, however, is not by going straight to the solution, but asking why we have no answers. The Los Angeles Times brings up some points that delve deeper into the economic rather than moral side. First of all—why is the fashion industry geared toward smaller sizes when it would seem the money is to be made by producing larger sizes, due to the fact that there are more overweight Americans than model-sized Americans?

Apparently, it’s not just a question of designers not wanting to create plus sizes; it’s also a mechanical matter of not knowing how to do it, or not being able to make a runway look larger without it turning into something completely different … Keep reading »

Mel Gibson Versus Zach Galifianakis: Looks Like Zach Won

Earlier this week, we told you that Mel Gibson‘s camp had come up with a kind of brilliant plan to get the despicable actor back into the public’s good graces: a cameo in “The Hangover 2.” Mel was set to play a tattoo artist in the flick, but the appearance has now been nixed. The movie’s director, Todd Phillips, explains, “I thought Mel would have been great in the movie… But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew.”

So who in the cast objected? Keep reading »

President Obama Does The “It Gets Better” Project — But He Needs To Do More


President Obama is the latest public person to contribute to Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better Campaign,” on the heels of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. In the video (above), the president says that “We’ve got to dispel the myth that bullying is just a normal rite of passage — that it’s some inevitable part of growing up.” He notes that although he doesn’t know what it’s like to be bullied for being gay, “I do know what it’s like to grow up feeling that sometimes you don’t belong. It’s tough. And for a lot of kids, the sense of being alone or apart – I know can just wear on you. And when you’re teased or bullied, it can seem like somehow you brought it on yourself — for being different, or for not fitting in with everybody else.”

The video and message is a powerful one, especially since it’s coming from the President of the United States. I am incredibly pleased that he chose to participate in this important project and hope that his words have an impact on those gay men and women who may not believe that “it gets better.” However, there is a part of me that is also bothered by his participation, as well as the participation of anyone else who does not actively support gay marriage.
