New Favorite Website: The Museum Of Kitsch


Allee Willis’ bio calls her a one-woman creative think tank, and I have to agree. She won a Grammy for the song “Beverly Hills Cop,” and also wrote the theme for “Friends.” Her newest endeavor is pretty awesome. It’s an online Museum of Kitsch, so there are no tickets required or field trips or keeping hands to myself. New kitsch is photographed and uploaded daily to the site in categories such as “Disco,” “Empowerment,” “Food,” “Toys,” “Parties” and “Hippies.” Any half-enthusiastic pop anthropologist could die happy in here.

Show Your Lefty Love!

Holla, Barack Obama! If you’ve got lefty pride, wave your south paw in the air! Seriously, I am one proud lefty. Since I was little, I always thought of being left-handed as something that made me unique and special. I love that look of unwarranted admiration I receive when someone first discovers I’m a lefty. “Oh! I didn’t know you were left-handed,” they’ll say. “Yup! Born that way,” I reply smugly. Sure … sitting at dinner tables is a complex process and don’t even get me started about the blatant disrespect in regards to the lack of scissors, notebooks, and school desks for our kind. Thankfully, the days of lefties being freaks are over. In fact, it seems like scientists are obsessed with finding out more about us proud few—they’re constantly doing studies to find out what makes us so freaking cool. After the jump, some things studies have shown about south paws. Keep reading »

Australian Couple Tops Last Week’s Dumpster Sex Duo

An Australian couple has given last week’s dumpster diver and his happy cohort a run for the title of Stupidest Fornicators. Aussie cops at a gas station found a man and woman having sex in a parked car. When the couple refused to stop—yes, the police asked, and they refused—the cops arrested the driver for breath analysis, which (shocker) came back loaded. After running the car’s information, the police discovered that … the car didn’t belong to the couple. They’d stolen it specifically for the occasion. And just think, they might not have gotten caught if they hadn’t gotten randy in the gas station parking lot. [Nine MSN]

A 56-Year-Old Virgin!


Last week, a retired school teacher named Deborah Parish came before the Texas Board of Education to argue for sex education in schools. “Kids are not ready to be parents, nor are they ready to have AIDS,” she said. I don’t think anyone’s ever ready to have AIDS, but that’s besides the point. “I don’t think any of these people know you can have sexual satisfaction without taking your clothes off,” she said. “OK, embarrassment, I’m 56 years old and I’m a virgin … technically.” A few minutes later, Deborah was interrupted and told that she had arrived to the hearing a day late for that particular topic. The Board was currently discussing physical education and alcohol awareness. [Gawker] — Awwwwkard. Keep reading »

Condom Ads Suggest You Rub One Out

This is another one of those ads that I just can’t figure out. It’s for condoms, apparently. Or a condom shop? I’m confused. And there’s something in there about rubbing one out, from what I gather. I Believe in Advertising‘s explanation doesn’t exactly help either: “Metaphor of the condoms like rubber gum and his utilization ‘to erase’ evidences.” HUH? WHAT? Totally confused. Maybe, if you use condoms, there will be no traces of … something … bad? I don’t know! Practice safe sex. That’s all I can figure out. Maybe one of you can explain it to me?

What’s Your Most Bizarre Fear?

Almost everyone suffers from some kind of phobia. The most common ones? Fear of spiders (Arachnophobia), heights (Acrophobia), enclosed spaces (Claustrophobia), even clowns (Coulrophobia). But have you ever heard of Genuphobia? Yeah, me neither. But 25-year-old-Brit Sarah Lister knows waaay too much about this condition—it’s a crippling fear of knees. When she experiences the merest sight or the gentlest touch of anyone’s kneecaps, Sarah goes from peaced out to passed out in five seconds. Kneecaps send her into a dizzying panic, leaving her flustered, angry and sweating profusely. This crazy fear makes the average day at the beach or summer night out to see her fiancé play football a total nightmare. She fears that her Genuphobia could ruin her upcoming wedding and she is determined to tame her kneecap nightmare with a strict regimen of hypnotherapy. [Daily Mail]

Now would probably be a good time to admit that I have my own really bizarro phobia … a fear of fireworks. Keep reading »

A Lottery Winner’s Dream: Women Wrestling In Not Much Clothing


Here’s more proof that people who can’t order a beer shouldn’t be able to win the lottery. Three years ago, Jay Vargas became the youngest Powerball winner in history and banked $17 million smackeroos at age 19. The South Carolina native swore he’d use the money wisely. “I [don't] have the temptation to go out and buy 15 cars or 50 houses, or a big mansion with 50-plus rooms,” he said. No, he wanted to use the money for good. To follow a dream. So he packed up, moved to Florida and founded Wrestilicious, a wrestling league for scantily-clad women. So far, Jay has shot the promo above and made a pilot episode. Now all he needs is a network to pick it up. I hope it works out, ’cause I want to see who’d win—Draculator or Malibu McKenzie.

Woman Wears Sign To Atone For Cheating

Jess Duttry, a 19-year-old in Ohio, cheated on her fiancé and when she came clean about it, he instantly broke it off and demanded the ring back. But Jess wasn’t about to let him go that easily. Over the weekend, she stood in a supermarket parking lot, wearing a signboard sandwiched around her that read on the front, “I cheated. Honk if I deserve a second chance.” On the back it said: “I honestly love him.” (This sounds familiar.) While this move gets an “A” for effort and a “C” for creativity, I’m kinda guessing her dude couldn’t have been too happy to have her indiscretion announced to the entire town outside the local Stop N’ Shop. What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to get a significant other to take you back when you hardcore messed up? Did it work? [AOL News] Keep reading »

3-D TVs Coming To Your Home By … Next Year

Just when I’ve finally figured out what each and every button on my flatscreen TV’s remote control does, electronics companies are ready to sell me the next must-have boob tube incarnation: 3-D TV. Both Sony and Panasonic have announced that they will be releasing 3-D TVs in 2010, and Mitsubishi and JVC are working on them too. Yes, these new sets will involve wearing goofy 3-D glasses and lord knows what they’ll cost, but does this pique your interest? [CNN] Keep reading »
