I decided to see “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” because even though “Rachel Getting Married” looked good, I knew I couldn’t handle a movie with so many ups and downs on a Friday night. I dragged two friends to the not-so-highly acclaimed movie, which Fandango classifies as “teen movie” and “comedy,” and I was nervous they would kill me when it was horrible. But the entire theater, including me and my friends, laughed and cheered through the entire film.

There are few names that a woman should never forget. The name of the person she lost her virginity to. Her mother’s maiden name (for the security of her bank account). Chanel. And of course, the name of her First Crush.
Now I don’t mean your first crush when you were five in the sandbox. Nor do I mean your first crush in middle school. I mean your first real high school crush. The one that you had when you were a Freshman and he was a Senior. Sure, up until that crush there may have been a hot and heavy make out session in the back of the movie theater following some experimentation with whip-its. But this crush is bigger than that. I’m talking about the first guy who made you realize that you wanted to have sex with someone. That made you think about having sex with him. Even if you’d never done IT. Even if IT scared you.
For me, it was Dave Waldenberg. Keep reading »
Confession: I’m having a secret affair with my 21-year old Irish doorman. It’s such a secret, not even HE knows. The other night, when my fiancé was out, my doorman – I don’t even know his name – came upstairs to my apartment to replace three light bulbs. As he stood on the ladder, screwing in those bulbs, telling me all about going to school in Dublin and spending the summer in New York, I felt enormously guilty. My fiancé wasn’t home and this attractive, foreign, younger man was doing menial labor in my apartment, steps away from my bedroom. It felt kind of like cheating, even though it was far from it in actuality, and cheating in actuality is something I would never, ever, ever do. Keep reading »
I’m so excited to see the new Pixar film, Wall-E, so it better not disappoint. That would be like having a crush on someone, and then finding out they’re not half as cool as you thought they were. I have a huge crush on Wall-E. [Wall-E Trailer] Keep reading »
“I love Christina Ricci. She’s really hot and I think she looks kind of odd like me…I fell in love with her when I saw Black Snake Moan. She was naked in that one. I kind of drooled over her naked scenes…” — Tila Tequila [OK magazine] Keep reading »
Whenever I ride the subway, I am surrounded by people I don’t know. And some of them are quite attractive. I never talk to them because they are too busy reading Wired and I am too busy listening to my iPod. But now I can try to find my heart’s desire on SubwayCrush.com, a missed-connections site for subway riders. I wonder whether people can actually recognize themselves in someone else’s description. Sadly, no one has posted their yearning for a brunette with curly hair riding the Q. [Via Gothamist] Keep reading »
I may be an American Idol addict (not to mention prone to having crushes on wussy musicians) but I rarely develop a “thing” for any of the contestants — I was never a Claymate, nor did last season’s Chris Richardson have a shot at usurping my love for Justin Timberlake. But this season, that trend may change. Meet Josiah Leming. He lives in his car! (Don’t worry, he likes it that way.) He travels from state to state, playing small bars and music halls, singing his own songs and playing the guitar. He’s barely legal, but that didn’t stop my heart from melting the second he got in front of the judges — though he’s from the South, he’s got an vaguely English twang in his voice when he sings, and is clearly influenced by cool Brit bands like Snow Patrol. We’ve often thought that AI would benefit from trying to find the next indie singer-songwriter and Josiah may be it! And by the way, if he gets tired of living in that car, I’ve got a guest bedroom he can shack up in anytime! [You Tube]
UPDATE: Catherine is officially in love. She’s watched the video twice now. Keep reading »
