Trailer Park: “Life As We Know It,” “It’s Kind Of A Funny Story,” “Nowhere Boy,” “Secretariat”

I haven’t been everywhere, but I think it’s safe to say after all the bizarre weather patterns last week that it is finally fall now! It’s also that wonderful month when drug stores turn into creepy candy cornucopias and the movie theater is flooded with horror movies. This week, there’s actually a bunch of exciting movies coming out! In honor of what would be John Lennon‘s 70th birthday, his biopic, “Nowhere Boy,” is in theaters. There is also the “talk to your friends about the fact that you made them godparents” fable, “Life as We Know It.” We find love in a psych ward in “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” And then there’s a prison movie (“Stone”), a horse movie (“Secretariat”), and two horror movies (“I Spit on Your Grave” and “My Soul to Take”). Now go to the movies! Bring some candy corn. God knows there isn’t enough corn in your diet. Brought to you by the American Corn Growers Association. Not really though. Keep reading »

Rag & Bone Will Make You An Art Star

Attention all artists, art school dropouts, or people who have time on their hands and know how to use a pencil and the internet: Rag & Bone (one of our favorite collections) is holding a mural contest. The NYC-based line recently moved into a new space in lower Manhattan, and they’ve got a spare outside wall they need designed. If you think you’ve got what it takes (and want literally tons of people to see your work when they pass by the shop everyday), submit your design to Rag & Bone. Five finalists will be put up for public vote on the Rag & Bone Facebook page, and the winner will get to execute his or her idea (paints will be provided). Start sketching!

Style 911: How Do I Wear Crop Tops And Sweaters Without Looking Like A Tart?

I need your help! I’m probably one of the few real women that is intrigued by the crop tops and sweaters this fall. I know, I know. But is there a way for a non-celebrity, non-model to wear this look? – Marie

I completely understand your style dilemma. I laughed and said, “hell no,” when the fashion prophets proclaimed crop tops the next big thing. But then I remembered how much I enjoyed my crop tops back in the ’90s. Of course, this time around, we’re too old for baring our midriffs. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t fashion-forward and age-appropriate ways to wear crop tops and sweaters. Check out our tips after the jump. Keep reading »

Justin Bieber Lends His Name To Walmart Nail Polish

Like Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis before him, Justin Bieber is co-branding with a line of nail polishes. The Biebs lent his name to a new line of Nicole nail polishes that will be exclusively available at Walmart beginning in December, and in stores like Target and Ulta after that. The polishes include reds, purples, blues and glittery shades and are titled after classic Bieber songs, like “Step 2 the Beat of My Heart” (pictured above) and “One Less Lonely Girl” (but it’s called One Less Lonely Glitter). Damn, when I was a hormonal Hanson fan they never did anything like this! Someone out there in Corporate America believes tween girls will buy anything Bieber-related … and the sad thing is, they’re probably right. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

At this point, Sandra Bullock has been everything from a bus driver to a beauty queen to a Southern football mom. But there’s one place she hasn’t been—space! So thank goodness she’s in talks with Warner Bros. to star in “Gravity” alongside Robert Downey Jr.! The two will play astronauts and Bullock’s character will apparently struggle to “survive an avalanche of space junk.” What’s space junk? [People]

Anyway, this will be Bullock’s first role since her Oscar-winning performance in “The Blind Side” and she’s beat out some heavyweights. So in honor of the negotiations, I’ve rounded up my ten favorite space movies! I’ll bring the Tang!

“Saturday Night Live” To Air Second “Women Of SNL” On November 1

After a successful ladyflower extravaganza hosted by Betty White last spring, on Monday, November 1, “Saturday Night Live” will air yet another ode to the vag. The “Women of SNL” special will blend both new and old, mixing classic clips with new material from Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and others. Yay … I think? I would watch two hours of these ladies clipping their toenails. (Call me, Tina.) But at some point, “SNL” should not need these specials. The show should just have lots of funny women comics and writers all the time. Hire a funny black lady so damn Kenan Thompson doesn’t keep having to wear a dress and lipstick, you hear?
