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.

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 combination; it was like setting my profile filter to: “I am a woman looking for men, hot, powerful, and international.” So skipping Barack Obama (#15!), check out the top five heads of state I wouldn’t mind dating.

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. That’s why I’m lovin’ BuzzFeed’s collection of alternative and lesbian Barbie art. Let’s give little girls some options for their future, puh-lease. Not everyone marries Ken, gets a pink Corvette, and lives in a Dream House. After the jump, some more of my favorite Barbies gone wild. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Love him or hate him, Tucker Max is in your face. The author of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, a debauched chronicling of his booze-fueled sexual hijinks which has spent the last four years on the The New York Times bestseller list and most recently been turned into a feature film, Max is the king of “fratire” and the enemy of feminist bloggers everywhere. His crude erotic tales through subterranean America are populated by midgets and strippers; generally, women do not fare well in the face of his f**k-’em-and-dump-’em M.O. Protesters have boycotted his movie and accused him of promoting “rape culture.” Good or bad, Tucker seems to relish the attention. In Tucker-esque fashion, one young woman bragged: “I Slept With Tucker Max, the Internet’s Biggest Asshat.” So, is Tucker Max for real? Or is he a savvy marketer plugged into what 21st century men really want? We talked to Max about his movie, his sex life, and his detractors. The recently released “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” isn’t faring well at the box office. That didn’t make him any less cocky. Keep reading »
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 Wife Her promises to help guys avoid the old ball and chain by exposing gold diggers and cheaters, one at a time. Moral of the story: There are just sooo many “hoes” out there.

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 long it touched the tops of his tight bellbottoms. This blog, “My Parents Were Awesome,” shows pics of people’s parents looking young, hip and, dare I say, trendy! It reminds us that yeah, the ‘rents were young once, too. A few of our fave pics, after the jump. Keep reading »
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 Engagement Photos! Yes friends, it’s OK to laugh … love IS funny. If you’ve recently gotten engaged, this site may make you re-think that photo session you have planned for next week … ’cause hanging upside down from a tree while kissing is totally lame. After the jump, the best of worst. Keep reading »
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 + Lovers 20 Questions, a trivia game where you try to match pictures of people of all different colors and creeds with their particular loves/hates. When you click on their square, you see live footage of them revealing their thoughts. It’s seriously got me giddy—my best score so far was 12. Gotta run … I have another round to play.

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 Thomas Edison, inventor of the light bulb, was afraid of the dark, that reading about yawning will make you yawn (hey, I just yawned writing the word!), that Picasso’s first word was “piz” (a shortened version of the word “pencil” in Spanish), and that words containing the letter “K” have been proven to make us laugh more than words without. Holy krap … that’s krazy kool! Can anyone say, “Future trivia champ?” [Learn Something Everyday] Keep reading »
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 F**king Hipster
are jealous of these pics. Keep reading »
