OK, this is weird. If you really, really hate The Clapper, you will probably love Turn Me On, a light switch created by designer Chris Haines. Instead of flipping a wall switch, you saunter over to this molded, wall-mounted ear, blow in it, and the lights are turned on (or off). Personally, we find this particular light switch to be totally freaky. It looks like it wants you to whisper sweet nothings in its ear. Or the wall wants to know all your secret fantasies. Or your apartment is listening in on your conversations. [NOTCOT] Keep reading »
Sometimes I think Jezebel is a little too anal in their war on Photoshop (for example, I disagree that Rolling Stone gave the women of “Mad Men” “brand new torsos”); however, sometimes the blog hunts down some truly gross examples of retouching gone wrong. Like this photo from Bloomingdales.com of a model wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg dress which, apparently, is the height of fashion for women with bizarrely dislocated elbows. Yikes!

If you’ve tried Jessica Simpson‘s shoes, then you’ve probably fallen in love with them. Now, Jessica, who pretty much exemplifies modern American style with her love of denim and rock T-shirts, is bringing jeans to the stylish woman on a budget. Jessica Simpson Jeanswear, a denim-inspired line that includes jeans and woven and knit tops, has launched on JessicaSimpsonCollection.com. But before you run out and purchase these ultra comfortable, affordable, and chic jeans (I have a pair that fits like a glove), why not hear from Jessica, herself, about the new line, the fall must-haves, and making denim work at work?

“I’ve always liked to look elegant. I’ve always been into looking well and feeling nice … I don’t know whether it comes naturally but I just like to feel comfortable more than anything – even when I was a young kid … When I was seven years old I was pageboy at a wedding. I had the choice of this one suit and another suit which was knickerbockers, a pair of long white socks and a pair of, like, ballet shoes and I chose that.”
—David Beckham tells the U.K.’s Daily Star that fashion has always been in his blood, even when he was a youngster. Becks in ballet shoes as a kid? There has to be a photo of that somewhere! Keep reading »
Just when we thought Japanese technology couldn’t get any freakier (Love Pillows, anyone?) — now comes a new wacky perversion. Atami, a resort town located just outside of Tokyo, now caters to men with virtual girlfriends — guys who play a Sims-like virtual relationship game called LovePlus. The game features a teenage boy who works to court and maintain a relationship with a girl, and followers of the game often become completely obsessed with their virtual conquests. Keep reading »
There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the fall. We’ve got pumpkins, pretty leaves, Halloween, and whatnot. But the hands-down best thing about fall is that this is the season when the good movies come out. Summer and winter might drop the biggest blockbusters, but the autumn flicks carry a different kind of weight. Maybe because the world is shedding its summer skin and the natural drama of nature lends itself to more heady works? Yeah, maybe not. Whatever the reason, there are some fantastic-looking movies coming out this fall. We are counting down the days until these 10 are released.
