Beer goggles: Make ugly people look prettier.
Japanese wrinkle goggles: Make ugly people look uglier, normal people look uglier.
The last completely insane anti-aging treatment we heard about was the vampire facelift, a creepy process involving facial blood injections, but now these “wrinkle goggles” make just about any beauty treatment seem legit in comparison. Keep reading »
OK, so I know that this site, Pink Kisses
, is designed to help women get over bad breakups. But something about it is so horribly Scary Sadshaw, so terribly desperate and faux “you go girl” that I actually feel more
depressed now that I’ve seen this clip. The service aims to help women recover from failed relationships, because “moving on is the best revenge” (actually, the saying is, “living well is the best revenge,” but whatever) and, for a fee, will send you a basket of crap to make you feel better about your breakup. I don’t know, but I think trying to make a buck on women who are dealing with breakups seems a little, well, tacky. Then again, we all need a bouquet of roses every once in a while. Keep reading »
Palin was smacked with the lucky stick when she was plucked from Alaska to be John McCain’s running mate. But she charged ahead (some might say like a Mama Grizzly), forging a new path and defining a new role in the Democratic Party. As much as some liberals might find the phrases like “pitbull with lipstick” and “Mama Grizzly” too buzzword-y and irritating, you can’t deny people have responded to it.
Traitster and Holmes ask, when will the Democratic Party get a Palin of their own?
“We wonder if Democrats shouldn’t look to her for twisted inspiration,” they ask, “and recognize that the future of women in politics will be about coming to terms with (and inventing) new models.” Keep reading »
Oh Patti, Patti, Patti … we’re huge fans of the Millionaire Matchmaker‘s show and dating advice, but we’d never in a million years want to set foot in her closet. TMZ got a hold of some truly crazy audio in which Stanger rips a new one for her stylist, Lauren Solomon, who apparently didn’t pull any of the looks Patti wanted for a “Today Show” segment with Elle. OK, so maybe Solomon didn’t get exactly what her client asked of her, but we’re not sure that merits a screaming tirade like this: “So why would you have me in f**king random clothes … this is Elle f**king magazine! … Count the f**king measurement to my f**king knee!” Ouch.

As if I wasn’t already obsessed enough with the new Arcade Fire album, The Suburbs, it just got better. You can visit this website to create a personalized, interactive music video for the song “We Used to Wait.” Just enter your own suburban childhood address and the magic of Google images will have you flying over your old street. I got kind of choked up when I saw San Rosendo Dr. and the cul-de-sac where I used to ride my bike, the place where my brother and I built forts, and even my swimming pool. It took me all the way to the window outside of my old bedroom! Hello, nostalgia, I love you. [Stereogum] Keep reading »
