So, I was pretty sure I was up to speed on my rare disorders – this happens to be a fascination of mine – but apparently not. If I thought Marfan Syndrome or Pica was weird, I was in for a mindf*** with this one. Wait for it…Angelman’s Syndrome (named after the dude who discovered it and also fitting cause peeps that have it have an unusually happy disposition) sometimes called happy puppet syndrome is a neuro- genetic thingy where a person has developmental delays, weird sleep things, “absence” seizures where they disappear for a minute, jerky, puppet-like movements like hand-flapping, frequent laughter or smiling. So. Damn. Crazy. Even crazier? Colin Farrell’s 6-year-old son James has it. [Celebrity Baby] Check out the video below of a child with Angelman’s to get a better idea.

And while it’s tempting to just throw all three of these guys in the “shag” column and walk away, here’s how we’d divide ‘em up… Keep reading »

They may need to change Hollywood to Holly Woods after the man-beasts of Tinseltown showed some serious scruff at last night’s Golden Globes. From lumberjack-like beards to “Johnny Be Good” side burns, I bet there was more hair on hunky faces than bush on starlets’ va-jay-jays. And some of the whiskers were seriously sexy! Here are our facial hair highlights from the Golden Globes. Keep reading »
Manscaping isn’t just a trend, it’s a bare necessity. While women have been waxing and plucking their eyebrows for ages, gentlemen are finally catching on and it’s become an eye-opening phenomenon. Salons and barbershops across the country are reporting record numbers of guys getting their brows waxed, tweezed, shaped, and shaved. Even Sephora is offering special products to de-unibrow dudes and even enhance their arch — like Gaultier’s $18 Monsieur Groomer gel.
