This 31-Year-Old Guy Lets Mom Pick His Dates


Meet Colby Brin, a 31-year-old single guy who has agreed that mother knows best when it comes to his love life. His endearingly yenta-esque mom, Geri Brin, is so bound and determined to help Colby find the right lady to settle down with that she has a website dedicated to the cause. Geri doesn’t think she’s meddling—more like helping cast a wider net to catch more fish in the sea. Hmmm … I let my mom help me “cast a wider net” once. BIG MISTAKE. But I digress. Keep reading »

MAC/Rodarte Makeup Collaboration Names Nail Polish After Impoverished, Murdered Women

My favorite makeup brand, MAC, has teamed up with Rodarte designers for a September 2010 collaboration based on their fall collection— but it’s gone horribly wrong. Drawing inspiration from the colors and culture of Mexico, MAC/Rodarte features a pink powder blush called Quinceanera, a sheer white lipstick called Ghost Town, and other items. That’s fine and dandy. But they’ve also tastelessly named their nail polishes Juarez (a pink frost) and Factory (a mint frost). Why’s it tasteless? Juarez is an impoverished Mexican factory town notorious for the number of women between the ages of 12 and 22 who have been raped and murdered with little or no response from police. Keep reading »

Courtney Love Has Style Blogger Aspirations

Crazy Courtney Love is at it again. But this time, instead of ranting on Twitter, she’s decided to create her very own style blog. Though Rumi Neely, she’s not, Courtney kind of has the idea down: post a pic, discuss your feelings towards the outfit, and make sure designer credits are included. The difference with Courtney’s blog is that instead of simply allowing the clothes to speak for themselves, Courtney has a venue where she can post her rambling prose, which seemingly only makes sense to her. (Let us know if you know what she’s getting at … ) That being said, this is one blog we’d suggest checking out solely for the pictures. What Courtney Wore Today is a mix of camera phone shots, party pics, and animated images, and though you might not pick up any style inspiration, you’ll at least be entertained by Courtney’s poses.

Lindsay Lohan Prances, Hides Ankle Bracelet For German GQ

OMG! Has the world gone four seconds without some breaking Lindsay Lohan news? Say it ain’t so! Here, the Girl Who Can’t Stay Out of Trouble frolicks on the beach for GQ Germany under the watchful eye of photographer Ellen von Unwerth. The look is ’70s, the hair is peroxided, and the SCRAM ankle bracelet is artfully hidden. Honestly, she looks better here — and on the cover — than she has in a while, er, I think, but that is one dark-eyed-looking girl. Too bad she didn’t get the memo that selling yourself to the world as a sexy enfant terrible doesn’t really make you a happy person on the inside. (See: exhibit A.) Keep reading »
