An Open Letter To Jared Leto, On The Occasion Of His Most Terrible Ensemble Yet

Dear Jared  Leto,

J-Rod, let’s talk. I’ve followed your career and your cheekbones and your 1000-yard stare ever since you were a flannel-wearing, illiterate teenage wastrel on “My…

Do Not Want: Converse Hightop Sandal

C’mon, Converse, you could not possibly be serious with this shoe. This sandal is a travesty. As an environmentalist, I am appalled. No one is going to buy this shoe…
