My mom never had a collection of Playgirl magazines. Thank God! The idea that she once got off to Burt Reynolds’ mustachioed mug would be too much for me to handle. But we know Burt, Mark Harmon (who?), and other ’70s and ’80s studs graced the covers of Playgirl during the mag’s hey-day and they’re… READ MORE »

I’ve never told anyone this, but there’s a good chance Jim Morrison, you know, from the band the Doors, could be my father. My mom was working at a head shop in the late-’60s when Jimmy (that’s what she called him) came in and bought a year’s worth of incense. It was basically love at… READ MORE »

Awesome future timewaster alert! The just launched blog Bad Sex Ed compiles the best of the worst sex advice people have ever received. It’s only got a few entries so far, but there’s this gem:
My brother told me that I should look deeply into a girl’s eyes while kissing her, that girls were… READ MORE »

The white leopard-print leggings? The furry pink vest? The sequined belt? Yup, every WTF item in my closet is from Forever 21. But the store’s so inexpensive, can you say no to a lime green bra and panties set covered in spikes?! (OK, I made that last one up. But they probably sell it.) The… READ MORE »

Yes, you are correct. Only ladies aboard this ship. Just one of many compelling images on my favorite blog of the day, F#@k Yeah, Gay Vintage. [F#@k Yeah, Gay Vintage] … READ MORE »

Ever pick up an old cookbook and marvel at how unappetizing all the recipes are? Aspic? Cold cuts and canned fruit? Maraschino cherries and boiled hot dogs? The Flickr group “Gee, That Food Looks Terrible” aims to catalog some of the truly disgusting food from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Like this broiled ham and… READ MORE »

Shlooby Kitten and I totally date the same kind of dudes. I feel ya, lady. Check out some more of Shlooby’s dating confessions on her blog. They make me feel so much better. [Shlooby Kitten] … READ MORE »

I’ve been having a little too much fun looking at the new blog, Passive Aggressive Panda. Remind you of anyone you know? Yeah, me too. Is it wrong to wish that I could take PA Panda with me to parties just so I could watch? Or maybe tell it what to say when I’m feeling… READ MORE »

In finance, there’s a canon that everyone on Wall Street has read: Benjamin Graham, Adam Smith, and Robert Schiller. But no canon exists for personal finance. In fact, most personal finance books are a frustrating waste of time and money. From Suze Orman’s factually incorrect information to Jim Cramer’s super-caffeinated hysteria, it’s a sad field… READ MORE »

A new blog, Menstrual Pinups, features pictures of ’40s and ’50s-style pinups who are having a surprise visit from Aunt Flo to go with their “oopsie” expressions. You mean women in the olden days got their periods? Say what?! Not that there’s anything wrong with a little menstrual blood for a cheap laugh, but this… READ MORE »

The new blog Hungover Owls is exactly the kind of pure silliness I live for. It features pictures of owls looking kind of busted, as if they’d had a wild night of boozing, and, as a bonus, we see their ridiculous morning-after thought bubble. Now that I think about it, owls always look kind of… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

It’s the age-old story. Boy meets girl. Boy marries girl and has two kids with her. Girl starts a blog. Boy starts a blog.

Boy and girl get divorced. Boy and girl join together to write a blog about what it’s like to be divorced parents living within walking distance of one another in… READ MORE »

History can be hilarious! Consider words with meanings that have changed over time (remember when “gay” meant happy, like “Grandmother is so gay”?), sexist advertisements that could elicit modern-day lawsuits and library books that now seem grossly inappropriate.

As luck would have it, Michigan librarians Holly Hibner and Mary Kelly discovered that the latter… READ MORE »

Wednesday is one of the saddest days of the week because it’s already been three days since a new “Mad Men” episode aired and we still have four more days to go until the next one. But, fear not, my friends, we have blogs to fill the lonely days between Sundays and remind us why… READ MORE »

Guys never learn. Or maybe they do? If you’ve noticed your man shaping up and becoming classier lately, perhaps it’s because he’s been reading our new favorite blog, The Rules of a Gentleman. Each day, a new tip or rule about gentlemanly behavior or lifestyle is posted. We love some of the old world-y suggestions,… READ MORE »

Adele is on maternity leave following the birth of her daughter Mila. During Mila’s naps, Adele likes to imagine what her baby girl might be dreaming about and then captures it in photographs like the one above. Cannot. Stop. Cooing. Jessica says it looks like hipster Anne Geddes on crack, but I think it’s straight-up… READ MORE »

It is a proven fact that if you take two already cute things, combine them, and put them on the internet, that women will have spontaneous squeal-gasms and probably land you a book deal. Take for example: Puppies and babies, Hello Kitty and miniature objects, singing toddlers and Beyoncé, Obama and children. To that end,… READ MORE »

I am a complete catalog whore. I love the styling of the clothes in the J.Crew catalog, the ramshackle, shabby chic-ness of the Anthropologie catalog, and the total randomness of some of the furniture placements in the CB2 and West Elm catalogs. Someone has taken that obsession a step further and has imagined the lives… READ MORE »
