Art Imitates Life For Paula Deen

I’ve been obsessing about Paula Deen since her appearance on “Top Chef.” I want to be friends with her. Since that’s not a reality yet, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Tumblr blog, Paula Deen Riding Things and apparently, so has she. “I think it’s great to see how creative my fans are!… I feel like I’m the new ‘Where’s Waldo,’” she said of the blog. Clearly this one is inspired by the drunken ride she took on Chef Robert Irvine’s back last week. I hope she doesn’t corrupt poor Bambi. [Today] Keep reading »

Does The Internet Need A Geek Culture Site For Women?

The Mary Sue, a new geek culture blog, just launched a hot second ago, and in one of the very first posts, a staff blogger explains to readers why a geek site “for women” is really necessary. It was an explanation I needed, frankly, because at first blush, I saw an Oscars roundup and a pic of a little girl dressed as a princess next to an R2-D2 and I wondered what made this site different from existing ladyblogs like The Frisky, Jezebel or The Hairpin — really, what made it needed. (By the way, the phrase “the Mary Sue” is a term used to describe a cliché, idealized female character often found in “dude literature.) After reading Susana Polo’s thoughtful first post, however, I can see why some of the existing spaces online don’t work for many geek girls who dig comics and “Star Trek” more than eyeshadow and “The Real Housewives.” Keep reading »

Let Them Eat Beefcake!

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 lovingly collected on a bitchin’ new — mostly-SFW — Tumblr called Let Them Eat Beefcake. As mesmerizing as those cheesy ‘staches are, I love the articles touted on the cover of the 1977 “Special Valentine’s Issue,” like “The 60-Second Period” and “The Boy-Rapist Next Door.” Beefcakes, like cheesy reading, truly never go out of style! (P.S. Do you think, 20 years from now, our daughters will be wondering what we saw in Levi Johnston?) [Let Them Eat Beefcake Tumblr] Keep reading »

Hilarious New Blog Alert: Daily Urban Legend

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 first sight. They were together for a short period but it eventually fizzled out because of Jimmy’s drug use (which eventually killed him in 1971). Still, my mom was a forward thinker and thought someone should carry on Jimmy’s genes, so she kept a little container of his man juice on ice for safe-keeping. In January of 1979 that little cup of frozen spunk went missing; 10 months later, I was born. My mom refuses to talk about it. Keep reading »

What’s The Worst Sex Advice You’ve Been Given?

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 really into that kind of connection. The first time I kissed a girl, she luckily knew better. After a few seconds of staring at her blurry eyelids, I followed suit.

After the jump, read the worst sex advice I ever received — and then share yours in the comments. Keep reading »

Hilarious Blog Alert: WTForever21

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 older I get, the more difficult it gets to justify shopping at a store that I’m sure outfitted many a Lady Gaga costume this past Halloween. That’s why I’m somewhat obsessed with the blog WTForever 21, which mercilessly mocks the store’s weirder offerings. Keep reading »

Terrible Food Photographed Terribly

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 lima bean casserole, which has the pallid hue of a seasick sailor. Thanks, but we’ll pass. After the jump, three more delightfully unpleasant vintage recipe images.
