The gloriously gorgeous Nate Archibald is back and he brought a good storyline with him! The Captain, aka Nate’s father, is back and he has secret plans. While Nate is initially surprised that his dad wants to make a life with him and his naïve mother, he eventually finds out the truth with Vanessa and the FBI’s help. Extortion and kidnapping? Excellent work, writers of GG! To think Nate’s own father would basically hold his wife and child for ransom, is so terribly sad and pathetic. I’m glad Nate put on his big boy pants and turned him in. He is now truly the man of the family. Tear! Keep reading »
We’ve finally had to admit that it’s cold outside and our sweater coat will no longer keep us warm. We spent this weekend looking for the perfect coat. You know, a coat that is stylish and substantial enough to keep us toasty on blustery days, but not so thick that we’ll look like Frosty the Snowman. This parka from The Gap fits the bill. The design of this parka makes it perfect for dressing down or up. We love the idea of pairing it with an LBD, tights and ankle boots. The faux fur trim makes it perfect for any animal activist. Plus, it’s on sale now, so it won’t break the bank. [$103.50, The Gap] Keep reading »
So, it’s still nearly six months until the moment Amelia and I have been waiting for — “Star Trek XI” comes out in May 2009! But they’re already Kirk-teasing us (get it?) with two movie trailers. I have to say both of them totally burst my nerd bubble. Ugh, the Captain Chris Pine looks like the kind of tool you accidentally have sex with while on vacation. Only the combination of sun and margaritas would get your guard down enough to do his kind of douche bag. Honestly, I’d rather have sex with 70-something Shatner. But on the up side, Spock is one hot of hunk of space junk! So, maybe, just maybe there’s hope this prequel won’t suck. Above is trailer #2, which at least has some original content. Trailer #1 is just about a boring blow torch. [Star Trek Movie Site]

Hillary Clinton laid pretty low following her withdrawal from the Presidential campaign back in June, although her historic run was somewhat overshadowed in the last leg of the race by Sarah Palin’s vice presidential bid. Now comes news that Clinton is a strong contender for secretary of state, replacing Condoleezza Rice. At the same time, a new New York essay asserts Clinton and Palin have set women back. Together, the author says, the women seemingly fit two sexist female stereotypes — The Bitch and The Ditz. I don’t entirely disagree with writer Amanda Fortini’s assessment of Palin’s mental prowess, but I do think she not only sells Clinton short, but misjudges her impact entirely — and that history will soon prove otherwise.

If history is any indication, you may want to stock up on your favorite lipstick before every tube is sold out, and go ahead, splurge on that cupcake — curves are coming back in vogue. Since our recent economic crisis, people are once again talking about the Leading Lipstick Indicator, a surprisingly reliable theory that suggests consumers turn to inexpensive little treats, like lipstick, when they start freaking out about the future. For example, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, lipstick sales doubled. The term was coined by Leonard Lauder (chairman of Estee Lauder), “who consistently found that during tough economic times, his lipstick sales went up.” Hmm…Sephora has been unusually crowded lately (last time I was there, I couldn’t find an available mirror to save my look, I mean life).

You take the good, you take the bad, you take ‘em all and then you have….a career in porn! The classic ’80s sitcom about an all-girls boarding house, “The Facts of Life,” has been re-imagined by some dirty minds. Back in the day, we were sure Jo loved the ladies, but in this saucy version, Tootie and the gang all like pootie! The adult vid, out today, climaxes in an orgy with their housemother, Ms. Garrett. Wow, there goes another innocent childhood favorite! [The Soup via ET]

Reader Darlene snapped this while trying on some clothes at a Gap in Boston.
Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to email@example.com. Keep reading »
Rhett Miller doesn’t just have a pretty voice. He’s also quite a looker. So it’s inevitable to not get that weak-in-the-knees feeling when he sings, whether it’s with his prolific alt-country band, the Old 97s, or on his solo pop albums. Here, Rhett’s picks for songs to get it on to. Although Rhett cautions, “Don’t try to make love TO the song itself, let it play in the background while you and another human engage in this most primal act.” Wow. He’s smart, too!

Michael K, our favorite gossip blogger/gay-at-large, has his own lexicon. On his site, Dlisted, he coins turns of phrase even more legendary and outrageous than the crazy cast of characters he covers on his beat. Basically, the K is the Merriam-Webster of celeb smack talk! So in honor of his juicy jargon, we’ve assembled some fan art we call the DicKtionary — an alphabetical reference for reading the trash talkin’ hilarity that is Michael K.
