I love the feminist
sentiment espoused in this “Dear Woman” video by what seems to be a spirituality-based group called Conscious Men … but can we talk about how creepy
these guys are? What’s with the music? The vacant intonation of voice? The cold stares? It’s just bizarre. But hey, thanks, men: I accept your apologies.

“Can I ask you a question? Who designed your maxi pad
“Patricia Field for Kotex.”
OK, just kidding. This is a conversation that will not actually happen. Patricia Field has leant her name to Kotex, but only to cases that carry feminine hygiene products in and this trippy maxi pad won’t actually be produced. (Besides, she’s a tampon fan anyway.)
Patricia will, however, mentor young designers who want to “ban the bland” and funkify a maxi pad for a Kotex contest. She told Fashionista, “I would put a design element to anything because I don’t want anything around me that’s ugly and boring. Period. Anything I can make beautiful I’ll make beautiful.” Pun, I’m assuming, not intended. [U By Kotex via Fashionista] Keep reading »
“Bizarre ER” is my new favorite television show that doesn’t air here. The same people that brought you the guy with the tiny hat superglued to his head
, share the tale of the girl who can’t shut her mouth. Poor Holly Thompson, she’s not in shock, she just yawned too hard during Government class and it stayed that way. Sometimes I feel like this girl. At least my mouth physically closes, it just has a lot to say and sometimes I can’t make it stop at the most inappropriate moments. I believe that’s called “foot in mouth” syndrome. I bet Holly could fit a foot in her gaping maw, or 26 wooden sticks, or … something else. Anything to exhaust her jaw muscles back to health.

Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain
‘s death/suicide and Jared Leto
marked the sad occasion by releasing this bizarre video in which the actor and 30 Seconds to Mars singer performs Nirvana
‘s “Pennyroyal Tea.” Um, dressed as Cobain. Apparently, he made the video awhile ago, when he was hoping to be cast in a rumored biopic about the rock star, but decided yesterday was the appropriate day to post it on the web for the masses to enjoy. (He never actually submitted it as an audition tape.) I’m not sure I agree that career-furthering, self-indulgent cosplay is the best way of paying tribute to one of rock’s most brilliant and tragic figures. What do you think? [The Daily What

Let’s just call it “Slave 4 U 2011,” okay? Britney Spears’ apocalyptic video for “Until the World Ends” has arrived and it has almost the exact same vibe as her video for the 2001 hit
— gorgeous and sweaty people in ripped fishnets grind on each other in a warehouse, with Britney leading the charge, only this time, chaos is ensuing outside. Oh, and these days, Britney’s a little older, her abs aren’t exposed, and she dances primarily with her hands rather than her whole body. Whatever. I am a diehard Britney fan and this is one of my favorite tracks on the album because it reminds me of going to raves in San Francisco in the late-’90s. This video gives me a mad craving for orange juice. Win! Keep reading »
