Usually when fashion and technology are integrated, you think, Hmm, that’s an interesting idea (a biking jacket outfitted with blinking turn signals on the back, anyone?), or you just laugh out loud (does weather-activated fashion really have a purpose?). Here’s something that actually seems legitimately wearable: the HoodieBuddie is a sweatshirt that replaces the hood’s ties with earbuds, so your headphones are always conveniently located. Somehow, the makers even managed to make the garment washable, too. Meaning your headphones would stay a little cleaner, we guess?
What do you think of the HoodieBuddie—geeky cute or way too geeky? [CrunchGear] Keep reading »
For some of us, shoes are always on the brain. Now, they can be on the brain, feet and desk, playing your jams. These $55 Japanese stiletto speakers connect to your computer via USB and, surprisingly, are totally something we might wear if they were, you know, real shoes. And if you know anyone with a shoe fetish, congratulations, you’ve got Christmas covered. [Gadget Review] Keep reading »
“Vampirella was so hot I used to buy every comic I could get my hands on. The fact she didn’t exist didn’t bother me because we have these quintessential female images in our mind, and in the case of the male mind, they’re grossly distorted. When you see something that reflects your id, it works for you…Most of men’s problems with women probably have to do with realizing women are real and most of them don’t look or act like Vampirella. A big recalibration happens when we’re forced to deal with real women, and there’s a certain geek population that would much rather deal with fantasy women than real women. Let’s face it: Real women are complicated. You can try your whole life and not understand them.”
—Avatar director James Cameron explains why nerds who are into fantasy women don’t get laid as much as men who can deal with, um, real women [Playboy] Keep reading »
So … is this where an addiction to online porn goes too far? [Unplggd.com] Keep reading »
When my boyfriend announced that he was getting Lasik surgery a few months ago, I was unnerved. Glasses are my thing—one of those obscure attributes that immediately attracts me to somebody, no matter how brutish or repelling the rest of his personality may be. For one of my girlfriends, it’s large veins on a man’s forearms. For another, it’s a defined jaw line (to the extent that she lists Michael Bolton and Ed Harris as her top celebrity crushes because of it). For me, it’s a hot pair of … lenses. Keep reading »
Finally. The adult movie every geek on the planet has spent his whole life waiting for: “This Ain’t Star Trek XXX.” As of late, Hustler Video has been on a bit of a roll, scoring with hot topic porn movies like “Who’s Nailin’ Paylin: Adventures of a Hockey MILF” and X-rated remakes of TV classics like “Not the Cosby’s XXX.” Now, they’ve decided to tackle the Star Trek franchise — Hustler’s “biggest production yet,” the press release crows! — with pornteur Axel Braun at the helm and sex on the bridge and in the transporter room. Hot. Can’t wait to see what Spock looks like nekkid. Does Uhura do anal? Is Kirk kinky? Does Bones bone? Ah, never mind. Just watch the not very revealing trailer. Keep reading »
“Nerds of Steel,” an article in this week’s New York Observer, purports that there are a bunch of men who, though they seemingly value brains over brawn, actually value brains in addition to brawn, but in secret. They are smart. They are buff. They are hot once they take off their clothes. I am slightly skeptical that these men exist because nerdiness has such cachet right now. People who wear glasses and read On the Sensations of Tone for fun but know all the coolest bands and are slightly shy are actually not nerds, but “cool nerds.” Cool nerds are a different breed. I would expect that some of this kind would be interested in developing their pecs but wouldn’t want anyone else to know, for fear of ruining their bookish persona. It seems like real nerds would be smart enough to know the benefits of physical fitness and wouldn’t care whether people think they’re less nerdy because they’re toned. But if you’re working on the cure for cancer or developing a new particle physics theory, how do you find time to work out? [NY Observer] Keep reading »
