This Union Isn’t Official ‘Til I Update My Facebook Status To Married


Wait just a second, Pastor. This marriage isn’t official because you, a diamond ring, and the State say so. It’s not a done deal until we hit pause on the ceremony, take out our Blackberrys, and change our respective Facebook statuses to say “married.” Oh yeah, and while we’ve got our phones out, we’re gonna tweet that update too! Sounds crazy? Well, it happened! Did this happy couple take their social media habit too far? Do you think this techno-savvy ceremony is cute? Maybe we should just be glad they didn’t tweet their wedding night blow-by-blow. [WoW Report] Keep reading »

CBS Wants You To Get A Pap Smear For Christmas


CBS is running a short PSA this holiday season urging people to give the gift of … pap smears. I understand the sentiment behind the message, but a pap smear for the holidays? Whatever happened to a nice pair of earrings? Keep reading »

Work That Pole, Dude


And you thought all strippers were women. Think again! The dudes are no shrinking violets when it comes to climbing up ye olde stripper pole. At the World Pole Dancing Competition in Tokyo, men and women mounted the brass rail to show off their best barely clad aerial acrobatics. This was the first year that men had their own division at the competition, and women came from around the world to compete in their division. While exotic dancing in gentlemen’s clubs involves nudity and sometimes raunch, “The only ‘x’ in the sport is exercise,” asserts the narrator in this video of contenders. So, what’s the difference between male pole dancers and female dancers? No stripper shoes. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Everybody’s Fine,” “Brothers,” “Up In The Air”

You’ve survived Black Friday and the post-Thanksgiving work week, but there’s more shopping to do and, because we live in America, we’re lucky that many malls contain this magical relaxation device called a “movie theater.” Sure, not every movie is relaxing, but the act of movie-going and the traditions that go along with it are comforting; the smell of popcorn, the pleather seat giving in to your weight, the first inhale of carbonated sugar water. This week, feel guilty for avoiding your parents over the holidays with “Everybody’s Fine,” feel shame for sleeping with your presumed dead husband’s brother with “Brothers,” or avoid relationships altogether with “Up In The Air.” Keep reading »

Liz Lemon Vs. The High-Def Camera

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in some beer-drenched frat house full of peeps who don’t understand “30 Rock” is satire. In last night’s episode, Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) went for Lasig surgery—that’s an off-brand Lasik—and got her hair did in a ferocious new ‘do, all to look TV-ready for Jack’s new show, “Dealbreakers.” It backfired, of course, and that was even before the high-definition camera.

“Jersey Shore” Is The Best Thing To Happen To MTV Since Music Videos


Will you remember where you were and who you were with the night “Jersey Shore” premiered on MTV? I will, because the show was just that friggin’ awesome. The show follows eight tri-state area locals as they spend the summer living, working, and partying together on the Jersey Shore. They’re all self-identified “guidos” and “guidettes,” which has offended some in the Italian-American community who believe those words are slurs. But the cast and producers insist that being a “guido” is a lifestyle — involving copious amounts of hair gel, fist-pumping, spray tanning, and drinking — that transcends race or ethnicity. Whatever. I call it entertaining. Keep reading »

Doctors Without Borders Gives Voice To Congo War Survivors


Doctors without Borders, the organization that goes to war zones and the forgotten ends of the earth to treat anyone who needs care, is bringing good of a different kind to the people they serve. A few years ago, NBC’s “ER” gave voices to fictional doctors and patients in Darfur, and now the real doctors are offering a voice to the people of the Congo. War has ravaged that country for nearly a decade, bringing with it poverty, cruelty, and disease. It’s been especially brutal for women, because child soldiers and career soldiers alike used rape as a weapon against the women. It was an event so big and awful, it’s been hard to see. That’s why Doctors Without Borders started Condition: Critical, a website which allows people to speak out about their experiences and for the rest of us to communicate back with our support.

James Lipton Wants You To Stop Sending Incriminating Texts


To stop crazy young people from sending sexual, mean or just plain stupid texts, LG is launching a PSA campaign encouraging peeps to “Give it a Ponder.” The ads star James Lipton of “Inside the Actor’s Studio” and—randomly—his removable beard. Watching James, who is pretty much a universal father figure, say “junk” makes this whole weird campaign totes worth it. Watch this one and then check out the others, after the jump. Keep reading »

If you think Miley Cyrus is trying too hard to be sexy, take a gander at this vintage video of Billy Ray strutting his stuff on the stage. Clearly it’s genetic — well, minus the mullet. [Everything Is Terrible!]
