More Products For Obscenely Lazy People!


We may be in the middle of a recession, but companies keep churning out products for people who are too lazy to wipe their own butts. Take, for example, the Shoedini. I have no idea if this is a new product or an old standby, but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. If bending over to take off your shoes requires too much time and effort that could be spent sitting on your fat butt watching infomercials and eating chicken wings, then the Shoedini is for you. I suppose this product would be acceptable for someone dealing with back problems, like our own dear Simcha, who has been laid up at home for almost two months after a botched spinal tap and can’t bend over, but she’s Simcha, goddamnit. She’s special. [$14.99, Shoedini via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

“The Real World: D.C.”: Looks Like That Series Has Finally Stopped Sucking


Oh, look, a plot of MTV’s “Real World” that revolves around something other than hot tub threesomes and body shots! Much to the chagrin of their cranky blogger neighbors, “The Real World: D.C.” descended upon our nation’s capitol to emote, drink, talk to small African-American children, and figure out their confusing sexuality. Considering the last eight or so seasons have been mind-numbing, barely-watchable garbage, we are thrilled at this new improvement! (Though we kind of want to smack the blonde kid in this clip, as he seems uber-annoying.)

However, keep in mind, whatever integrity points MTV gained (+5) cleaning up its act with “Real World: D.C.,” it lost points with the brain-herpes that will be “Jersey Shore” (-3,000) (airing December 1!!!!). We will be watching both. Keep reading »

Is Leighton Meester The Next Mariah Carey?


Leighton Meester has been working hard on launching her singing career, providing guest vocals on other groups’ songs (Cobra Starship’s “Good Girls Go Bad“) and performing at the opening of American Eagle’s flagship store in New York City last week. Now, she’s trying to get a holiday song stuck in our heads à la Mariah Carey. I definitely prefer this seasonal tune to her upcoming album’s first single, “Somebody to Love“; however, we all have “All I Want for Christmas Is You” in our heads 15 years after it first came out, so I’d say Mariah still holds the top spot.

Japanese Dude Marries Virtual Girlfriend


A Japanese man who goes by the online handle Sal9000 has married his anime character girlfriend, Nene Anegasaki. It’s all so romantic. Nene is part of the Nintendo DS video game Love Plus, the wedding was held at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and a real priest was on hand. The ceremony was broadcast live on the internet. I have no idea when, how, or if this marriage will be consummated. [Boing Boing] Keep reading »

The Muppets Do Queen And It Is Beautiful


It’s a well-known fact that Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is one of the the hardest songs to sing and until this very second, I didn’t think anyone but my beloved Freddie Mercury could pull it off. I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was to have The Muppets sing this classic rock song, but they should be given a prize or a medal or perhaps be knighted by the Queen. I particularly like Beaker’s contribution — mee-mee-mee-mee! [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Is Adam Lambert The Victim Of A Double Standard?


As we mentioned yesterday, after his AMA performance in which he kissed a guy and simulated oral sex, Adam Lambert‘s performance on “Good Morning America” this morning was swiftly canceled. Instead, Lambert was interviewed on the CBS morning show, “The Early Show” (who scooped him up to perform after ABC gave him the boot) where he talked about the “double whammy” of being a gay man in show business. Lambert said that with his “background in theater,” he just got “carried away” with his sexually-explicit performance, but he didn’t feel he owed anyone an apology. “I’m a performer, not a babysitter,” Lambert said as he explained it was never his intention to offend anyone.

Watch The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Preview


We know you guys are freaking out that you can’t watch this until it airs on Dec. 1 (uh sure). So here ya go, the preview in all its glory: who wore the $3 million diamond bra, the surprise guests, and a super random pink carpet moment with Dr. Dre (!?), who shares how his wife really feels about the show.

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Rihanna To Adam Lambert

Today is not much of an indie day. Nope, today is a day for big, huge, mega-blockbuster releases from the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Shakira, and Susan Boyle. Why? So that they’re in stores, sitting on the new releases shelf, on Black Friday when people storm the doors of Wal-Mart, hopefully not trampling people their way to big discounts. So if pop is your thing, congrats! And if it’s not your thing, come back next week. Keep reading »

Newsweek Waves Goodbye To The ’00s With “The Decade In 7 Minutes”


Do you remember November 1999? No, neither can I. But I do remember that we were all going crazy getting ready for the approach of the year 2000. Sure, that was the end of the millennium, and this is only the end of the decade—but why is no one talking about how we’re about the say goodbye to the good old aughts? Newsweek is on the ball, though. They put together this history of the decade in seven minutes. Take a peep—it’s pretty entertaining. What would you have included that they didn’t? Anything you’d take out? [Newsweek] Keep reading »
