Last 31 Days Of 2008: Pay Your Cobbler A Visit

You know those really fabulous boots you’ve been dying to own, but really can’t afford? Forget them. Now’s your chance to breathe new life into your worn boots and shoes for a fraction of the cost of a new pair. Most cobblers can put a new heel or sole on any kind of footwear. And some can stretch a pair of shoes or even turn a pointy toe into a rounded toe. It really doesn’t make sense in this economy to spend a ton of money on a frivolous purchase when you can just update what you already have. I have a classic pair of lace-up boots from the 90′s that I can still wear because my cobbler changed the sole and polished them recently. Keep reading »

Crave: Creative Nail Design’s Stickey Base Coat

We love getting weekly manicures (especially at places that give mini neck massages while your nails are drying), but it’s kind of painful to fork over $15-ish dollars each week — that’s $780 a year! Which is why we’re newly obsessed with Creative Nail Design’s Stickey Base Coat. We tested it for about two months and discovered that if you put your polish on top when it’s slightly wet, it won’t budge for two weeks straight. Your nails (and wallet) will thank you. [$7, CND]

We’re giving away five bottles of CND’s Stickey Base Coat, but you have to work if you want your nails to look good.

Star Trek Goes Gay, Finally

Back in the ’90s, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” commissioned an episode involving gay characters in love. The script for “Blood And Fire” was about a deathly bloodworm epidemic, a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, and it was also the first time the multi-cultural show would have included homosexuals in any of their plots. Unfortunately, although creator Gene Roddenberry wanted to include positive representations of the gay community on his show, Paramount Studios wasn’t as forward thinking. But, like communicator/cell phones, the episode featuring gay lovers didn’t get made for real, until recently. Thanks to the fan artist project “Star Trek: Phase II”, the show will boldly go gay in a webisode! Working with the original writer, David Gerrold, and his premise, the fan crew also adapted the script about Kirk’s gay nephew to deal with the topical issue of same sex marriage. You can check out the first half of the webisode tomorrow on YouTube, but if you just want to see the sexy parts, check out the video above. [io9] Keep reading »

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Holiday Special

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily led me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly, made me one of my gyno’s most valuable players. But I’ve lived to tell the tale(s)! So, from time to time, I will dish the dirt on everything from getting freaky to getting freaked out. Now, let’s get this party started!

Back in the day, the Winter Solstice, which falls on December 21st, was a sexy time for all! In Ancient Greece, it was known as “The Festival of the Wild Women.” The Romans danced around with phalluses, cross dressed, and slaves showed their master who was boss — hot! Now Winter Solstice celebrations are all tied up with religion and gift giving, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have a little extra dirty fun — especially since it’s is the longest night of the year. So, here are my pervy suggestions for putting the happy in your holiday season…

Sex Can Sell Anything, Even Fast Food

This Arby’s commercial always makes us laugh, and it kind of puts us in the mood for some of those yummy curly fries. But isn’t it strange that sexually charged ads can sell fast food? There is nothing attractive about the gross feeling you get after eating a cheeseburger and a large fry. Do you ever feel like getting it on after pigging out? We certainly don’t. And despite Burger King’s new Flame by BK fragrance, the smell of deep-fried food can be nausea-inducing. Even so, the technique seems to work. Fast food restaurants use sex to sell burgers all the time. In fact, we should probably add the cute fast-food girl to the before-marriage sex list for guys. Check out a German Burger King commercial for the chain’s Long Chicken Sandwich after the jump…

Obit: The First Lady Of “Star Trek,” Majel Roddenberry

Majel Roddenberry, the widow of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, died yesterday from leukemia at the age of 76. Though she was married to the show’s creator, she also was a key part of the show’s success from the very beginning. She became known for playing numerous characters, including Nurse Chapel on the original series, the voice of the ship’s computer, and Counselor Troi’s crazy mom on “The Next Generation.” She just finished recording voice over work for the newest “Star Trek” movie, which means her legacy will live on a little longer.
