Hot Blog Alert: Third And Delaware Chronicles The Best Of “Roseanne” Fashion

Who woulda thunk “Roseanne,” that off-beat sitcom about a working class family fronted by the crass Roseanne and eternally plumber-cracked John Goodman, could provide such awesome fashion fodder? A rad new blog called Third And Delaware (the cross streets for the Conner family home) chronicles all the awesomely ’80s and ’90s sartorial moments from one of my favorite TV shows ever. Dan’s plaid! DJ’s colorful hoodies! Becky’s scrunchies and undercut bob! Roseanne’s OK Corral shirt and funky hair accessories! Nancy’s slut gear! Crystal’s suburban mom chic! And, of course, Darlene oh-so-on-trend grunge stylings. Screen shots are accompanied by hilarious commentary, like:

Just a hot second ago Becky was sporting the messy boy hair, and now all of a sudden she’s got an unbelievably amazing UNDERCUT? … It seems Becky spent her summer holiday growing out her choppy locks only to shave half of them off again. With this hairstyle she gets the look of a bowl cut without the hassle of having to brush all of that hair! Her neck is free to breathe, and she can pop her collar without fear of disturbing her incredible coif.

Let’s hope this site doesn’t spawn an undercut comeback. [Third And Delaware] Keep reading »

Check This Out: “Clients From Hell” Blog

Attention design nerds! Here’s a new blog that will have you laughing your fonts off. Clients From Hell features anonymous stories about the incompetent people and projects graphic designers have dealt with. The vignettes deal with anything from stupid misunderstandings — “After I sent a client a mockup with lorem ipsum as filler text [they responded] ‘It’s good but there is a weird language on the page. It will either need to be translated or removed.’” — to clients who fancy themselves better designers than you: “Hi, I was having a word with my nephew last night, who’s a bit of a web designer himself and I have a few new ideas for the site…”

It’s a Helvetica good time. [Clients From Hell Tumblr] Keep reading »

New Blog We Love: Models Are Smart

If you’ve ever seen an episode of “America’s Next Top Model,” you might be under the impression that most models—while nice to look at—are actually pretty vapid. Wrong! Bloggette Erin Gibson doesn’t want you to get it twisted anymore. She has set out to prove that these anatomically superior ladies and gentlemen, who probably owe their perfect faces and bodies to some sort of hermaphroditic hormonal imbalance, are actually hella smart. Her new blog, Models Are Smart, reveals all of the deep thoughts that models are thinking while they are “smeyesing” and contorting their superfine bodies into fierce poses. After the jump, you won’t believe what these models know. Looks like I can learn a thing or two from them. [Models Are Smart] Keep reading »

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 boyfriend to convert. He says, “No.” Now she is torn—her mother doesn’t want the marriage to happen, and she’s not sure what to think. So how does she deal? She does something that I can only describe as my worst nightmare—she joins JDate, a Jews-only online dating site and pledges to go on 50 dates, writing about each and every one. At the end of the 50 dates, she’ll decide if she can accept her non-Jewish man, refuse her family’s wishes, and get engaged. Or who knows, maybe her beshert will come along. I can’t say I’d have the chutzpah to take on such a daunting task—but this girl is doing it with an open heart and an open mind. L’chaim, lady!

P.S. Don’t tell my mother about this social experiment. I don’t want her to get any crazy ideas. Keep reading »

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 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.

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. 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 »

Frisky Q&A: Tucker Max Talks “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell,” Feminism, Sex, And Why He Loves Women

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 »
