Andrew W.K. Rocks Out On “Silent Night”

I used to hate Andrew W.K.–his whole “party hard” schtick was really grating and annoying. And then I interviewed him a few years ago and found him to be one of the sweetest and most genuine rock dudes out there. I still don’t really want to listen to his music, but I get his appeal. With that in mind, I present to you Andrew W.K. doing the holiday classic “Silent Night” — in a way you’ve probably never seen before. [A.V. Club] Keep reading »

5 Weird Ways To Get In The Mood

Even though we look forward to the holidays as a well-deserved break from the daily grind, it can still be difficult to get “in the mood” when you’re fighting mall traffic and dealing with relatives.

“Charity Sex”: During The Holidays, Should Sex Be Treated As A Gift?

Here’s a curious article over at Fox News, “Charity Sex: The Gift That Keeps On Giving.” “Charity sex” (not to be confused with “pity sex”) is, according to the author, “a gift you give to your partner, and to yourself.

Help! He’s Terrible At Buying Me Gifts

My husband cannot shop. He’s awful at buying gifts. He tries really hard, but it’s just not his thing. One year, I got socks. Then there were the years where I got electronic gifts—fun for him, but not for me (and no woman really wants a clothes steamer as her big Christmas gift, no matter how useful it is). Once I got a fishing pole. He’s tried to buy jewelry, but I never like it. Keep reading »
