New Blog, 50 JDates, Kicks A Romance Novel’s Butt

Here’s the plot of my new favorite blog, 50 JDates: A 26-year old Jewish girl is in love with her boyfriend, who's a goy (aka, not a Jew). The two lovebirds are considering marriage, but because her family is super religious and it's important to them that she marries a Jewish man, she asks her…

Not One, But Two Offbeat Style Photoblogs We’re Loving

Give the standard glossy fashion blogs overrun with pretty girls and designer bags a break for the day and dedicate yourself instead to old-school-style flashbacks and new-school sartorial irony. We've tripped over a couple oddball (but way interesting) blogs to help you on your quest for the strange.

Awesome Blog: The Hottest Heads Of State

I almost felt like I was cruising an online dating site the first time I scrolled through the photos of all the powerful foxes on the new blog Hottest Heads of State. As the name implies, it features 172 of the best-looking men and women ruling the world. Power and good looks are a deadly…

Barbie Gone Wild!

As far as I was concerned when I was a little girl, there was only one proper use for my Barbie dolls—simulating sex acts. But Barbie and Ken humping (without privates mind you) got old after a while. Now I know that sex is not always a Barbie and Ken doin’ it missionary style event.

“Just Don’t Wife Her” Website Outs Gold Diggers And Cheaters!

Ladies, I’m wondering if you’ve been having the same problem as me … men just seem too eager to get hitched lately. Really it’s quite concerning. (For those who are unsure, this is sarcasm.) Well, luckily, a new website has come along to show all those marriage-ready men the folly of their ways. Just Don’t

Sweet New Blog: My Parents Were Awesome

Just because your parents walk around wearing pants that go up past their bellybuttons, have a one-drink limit, and go to bed at 10pm doesn't mean they weren't cool once. My dad, who is now balding and has a white beard, was a hardcore hippie back in the day, with red hair that was so…

New Favorite Blog: Awesomely BAD Engagement Photos

Nothing is funnier to me than cheesy, posed portraits à la Awkward Family Photos. Whether it be a weirdo image with laser beams in the background or a ridonculous Christmas photo, it’s clear that these pics only serve one purpose—to entertain onlookers. But there is one thing more hilarious than bad family photos. Awesomely BAD

New Site We’re Hearting: Haters + Lovers 20 Questions

Can you guess who hates their older brother? Loves wearing a bikini? Hates when girls don't put out after you pay for a date? If you ever needed additional proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover, this interactive website will convince you. I have wasted waaay too much time today playing Haters

Learn Something Everyday And Enjoy It!

Usually reserved for sappy greeting cards or inspirational mass emails, the saying “learn something new everyday” had lost its glowing appeal for me. But a new site is making the truism hip again. You’d better believe I’ll be visiting Learn Something Everyday for an adorably illustrated daily lesson. This week alone, I learned that Thoma…

New Favorite Blog: The People Of WalMart

Walmart’s commercials have gotten awfully slick lately. The one above is a real tearjerker that begs the question—do these people really shop at Walmart? Maybe, but just compare them to the folks spotted at the (vaguely evil) bargain megastore on my new favorite blog, People of Walmart. I bet the people at Look At That

New Favorite Blog: Emails From Crazy People

Do you save the crazy emails you receive? Umm ... I have an entire arsenal of them. About six years ago, I started a file in my inbox labeled “INSANE” and I have been growing my collection ever since. Nothing cheers me up like reading an insane email thread. Truly. That’s why this new blog,…

Awesome New Blog: Don’t Judge My Hair

Ever feel like it’s just time to change your ‘do? Lately, I've been so sick of the mildly-different-variations-on-the-same-haircut that I’ve been rocking for the last five years. I’m not ever going to rock a Holmes-bob and it looks like the Kate Gosselin wig is sold out. Dammit! As I was cruising for some “out of…

New Favorite Blog: Skinny Girls, Big Sandwiches

In our weight-and-beauty-obsessed culture, there’s something almost fetishized and taboo about an image of a skinny girl eating a big, honking burger. That’s why I’m oddly obsessed with a new site aptly titled, Skinny Girls, Big Sandwiches. It's a blog “dedicated to skinny girls chowing down and stuffing their gullets full of sandwiches ... or…

Ciara’s Ex-Hairstylist Spills The Goods

While Ciara is sporting her cute short 'do all over town, her hairstylist is simmering. Shirlena Allen, who says she's been styling Ciara's hair for over a year, says pictures of Ciara's edgy "new" haircut posted on Twitter were totally misleading. According to Allen, the photos were taken over a year ago by Atlanta-based photographer,…

Are You Unemployed? Blog About It!

It was the first week of January when the CEO of my company called everyone into the conference room to have a heart-to-heart about how the recession would affect our jobs. (1) No raises. (2) No Christmas bonuses. (3) Work day extended by an hour. I suspected that layoffs were impending. I prepared for the…

The Worst Library Books Ever

Two librarians from Michigan, Mary and Holly, have given us yet another website to make Tuesday mornings at the office completely unproductive. Their blog, Awful Library Books, documents the ridiculous books that you find year after year in the $1 bin at your local library’s annual book sale. I laughed hysterically when I saw a…

Washington Post’s New Video Blog: Are You Inspired By Street Style, Too?

These days, I get more ideas about what to wear from watching people on the street or looking at blogs that document the clothes of everyday people than from looking at high-concept photo shoots in fashion magazines. The Washington Post has caught on to this trend and gone all Sartorialist on us by shooting video…

And yet it makes for wonderful entertainment, thanks to PassiveAggressiveNotes.com, a blog showcasing the best in annoying, written interactions. Some of the goodies include a letter written on Hello Kitty paper that reads, "Hi…
