The Daily Hotness: Matthew Tully from Shear Genius

Yesterday, I attended a promotional event for the second season of the Bravo show Shear Genius – and contestant Matthew Tully gave me a blow-out! It was the best I’ve ever had and while I sat in the chair we chatted about the show. He said that everyone else in the house got along, but he was kind of the outcast. Instantly this made me like him more. Matthew couldn’t reveal the winner of the show, obviously, but my fingers are crossed that it’s him, because everyone else on the show looks catty, like they’d beat you over the head with a flat iron to get to the top.

Made Up Song Saves Pregnant Mom’s Life

A three-year-old saved her pregnant mom’s life by calling 911 and giving the dispatcher details about her house and other landmarks all because her mom had made up a song called “911 green” that the toddler learned the week before. (The title comes from the fact that to call 911 on a cell phone, you have to press the three numbers and then the green button. From what I’ve found, the lyrics of the song are simply, “911 green, 911 green.” But there might be a remix coming out in the next month or so.) [AP] Keep reading »

Slideshow: Men’s Summer Fashion Trends We Hate

Guys might complain about some of the fashion trends we follow. This year’s gladiator sandals and last year’s voluminous baby doll dresses are two cases in point. They just don’t seem to get it. Well, with summer in full swing, we’ve started noticing some terrible trends that don’t even have a basis in fashion, from what we can tell. Who said mandals were hot? When is it ever a good idea for a guy to put on a transparent shirt? These are 10 of the worst “looks” guys could wear for summer. (In response to Asylum’s “Women’s Summer Fashion Trends We Hate”). Now will someone please buy Ed Westwick a longer pair of shorts? Keep reading »

Obama’s iPod

Your musical tastes say a lot about you, blah, blah, blah, so it’s kind of a big deal that in the current issue of Rolling Stone, Barack Obama divulges some of what’s on his iTunes. Obama says he has “pretty eclectic tastes,” and his playlist includes the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Bruce Springsteen. He thinks hip-hop stars like Russell Simmons, Jay-Z, and Ludacris are “great talents and great businessman,” but wishes his daughters could listen to their music without having to worry “that they were getting bad images of themselves.” I poked around the internet to see whether John McCain has a playlist making the rounds, but all I could find were these from his daughter, Meghan.

Just Do It: Deleting A Guy’s Number

I’m a numbers girl.

I take pride in my cell’s large phone book as much as I take pride in amassing new Facebook friends, Tumblr followers, and page views. I’m sorry, but in this day and age, the higher the numbers get, the cooler one looks.

This creates a problem, however, when there are just certain people to whom one shouldn’t be linked—past lovers. Naturally, the Internet makes it hard to completely escape from the counterpart of your failed relationship. But, in some sort of sick backwards logic, I tend to increase this hardship by keeping them around in the digital arena for longer than necessary. Keep reading »

Poll: How Often Do You Use A Condom During Sex?

Young people don’t always do act with the hormones as opposed to their brain, and a study by the New York City health department is evidence. Apparently 40 percent of New Yorkers with multiple sex partners didn’t use a condom the last time they had sex, according to a poll of 10,000 adults in the city. This in a city where bowls full of condoms are readily available at many bars and clubs. Perhaps that’s why one in four adults in NYC have the virus that causes genital herpes. The only good news is that most young adults (those under 45) with more than one sex partner use condoms, the older folks are another story. Hooray for safe sex! [AM New York]

STD Prevention Videos Help Prevent STDs

Playing a video on the prevention of HIV and other STDs for people while they’re waiting to be seen in an STD clinic can reduce the likelihood that they’ll get such an infection. In a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study of more than 38,600 people, and the rate of STIs was under five percent for those who saw the video, while it was nearly six percent for those who hadn’t. Guys seemed most influenced (they are supposed to be very visual learners, aren’t they?), and were 13 percent less likely to develop an infection if they’d seen the video. Perhaps this worked because, unlike health class, where you can fall asleep or take the hall pass and wander around, these people were in STD clinics and were probably quite nervous about being tested and whatnot. Plus, the magazines in waiting rooms are generally crap and 16 months old. [Ivanhoe] Keep reading »
