We all know Snickers people and Skittles people, and we also know not to introduce those people at parties. Some great tastes just don’t taste great together. Here is our 100% accurate and scientific assessment of what your favorite Halloween candy says about you. Read more on The Gloss…
In preparation for my big move to Brooklyn at the end of the month, I have done a massssssive purge of everything in my apartment that I don’t want but is in too good a shape to trash, and am having a big ol’ apartment sale/giveaway extravaganza this weekend. I’m planning on serving some snacks and, most importantly, day-appropriate cocktails. I need to make something that easily serves a crowd, so I’ve decided to make a big ol’ pitcher of Screwdriver Sangria. Get the recipe after the jump! Keep reading »
When people wake up on the wrong side of bed, bad things happen. Unfortunately, for a group of tourists visiting San Francisco, their sightseeing tour guide (who happens to be incredibly racist) was one of those people. Apparently, it was this woman’s last day on the job, and she just could not hold in her angst anymore, so she used her emcee powers to drop tonsss of f-bombs about everything in Chinatown that pisses her off, from “preschools and your little preschoolers” to “your markets with your turtles and your frogs.” Naturally, she’s also flailing around a bottle of something that I can only assume would burst into flames if a lit match were to come within four-feet of her. Towards the end of the tour, she starts a “Fuck Chinatown” chant, and people actually start clapping and JOIN IN before she ends on an unexpected note, yelling “GO GIANTS!” Some poor German tourist got the whole thing on video and probably went back to her country vowing to never visit America again. Stay classy, San Francisco. [Gawker]
So here’s what I think really happened when Taylor Swift released “Out Of The Woods” last week: some wild techno remix that she was saving for months down the line was accidentally released in the place of the original track, and this lovely singer Kathleen Nguyen thought she’d do Tay a solid by posting a video of the soft, acoustic, correct version of it. I’m all about Taylor trying out new sounds, but this rendition of “Out Of The Woods” is a much more emotionally honest fit for those from-the-heart lyrics. See Taylor? Your fans know you better than yourself. If you’re as in love with this cover as I am, you can download it here.
If you and your significant other finally decided to take that giant leap of financial and emotional faith and move in together, know that this is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Before you eagerly sign the dotted line on your lease, take a look at some things you should sit down and discuss BEFORE you find yourself arguing over who should be taking out the trash or paying the electric bill.

For the next two months, you can get free shipping on everything from Target, if you hadn’t noticed already. Woohoo, Christmas in October! No, really, though, they’re doing it to bump their holiday sales.
So yeah, that 92-cent lip balm? Free shipping. A 97-cent pack of pens? Free shipping. If you really, really hate Target, you could troll the shit out of them by placing multiple orders for individual boxes of staples at 41 cents each (while the sale on that item lasts) and then returning them to the store. Or, of course, you could skip holiday shopping with the crowds and just order everything online with no tax or shipping, which is also a legit idea.
Of course, this is the same store that had a massive data breach on credit card names, numbers, expiration dates, and CVV numbers last holiday season but heeeeey! Free shipping. Hopefully it won’t happen again. [Consumerist; CNBC]
