Too Cute For Words...

I can hardly believe that this is a REAL dog. There is a post from the Tokyo Times about how Japanese people are increasingly choosing pets over kids -- maybe space concerns? Apparently, dogs now outnumber kids 10 and under in Japan. Take eye surgeon Toshiko Horikoshi, 46, who pushes around this teacup poodle and her Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix in a pram (fancy name for a fancy stroller).

Who Designed This?

Miley Cyrus' new "microphone" shaped candies look more like penises. Is Disney blind? And why would microphones be in a flesh color?

Hef To Marry?

I personally think that this is for ratings, but apparently it has been "hinted" that Bridget and Kendra are moving out in Season 5 of "The Girls Next Door" and that a HUGE wedding is coming up. Is Hugh Hefner really going to settle down with someone who calls him Puffin? let's not forget about the 53-year age difference either (Hefner is 80, Madison is 27).

What Is A Narwhal?

While I don't profess to be an expert on animals, I typically have at least HEARD of an animal before. Not so with the narwhal. Dubbed “the unicorn of the sea,” the narwhal is a type of whale with a long, spiral tusk... and is kind of magical. Fine, it's not magical. While they’re not necessarily as cute as manatees or (duh!) dolphins, this fascinating, lesser-known creature is making waves, because believe it or not, they are more at risk from global warming than polar bears. Why you need to know any of this? No clue, but it's a fun factoid!

Worse Than Bridezilla Requests

I guess this is one way of interpreting "sexy" for your wedding... or just "trashy".


Shauna Sand thinks a bikini and stripper heels are suitable attire for family day at the beach - makes perfect sense....

An image from Heidi Montag's video for her nauseating single, "Overdosin'." Olivia Newton-John-insipired much?

Economy MUST Be Bad, Diddy Is Flying Commercial

High gas prices make his private jet too pricey, says Diddy in his latest YouTube clip, which he made while boarding an American Airlines flight. This video is so lame and Diddy looks so stupidly pretenious that he needs to make a video annoucement. Rather than just be normal and just fly commercial, he needs to make a video out of it.

Now That's Spirit, Stupid, But Spirited...

I was originally going to report that there was this new study showing that cheerleading is the most dangerous school sport for females, as two-thirds of all catastrophic injuries among high school and college girls have been from cheerleading accidents. BUT, I was really taken aback by this photo of a cheerleading continuing even with a brace around her neck... IS SHE SERIOUS?,8599,1833715,00.html?xid=newsletter-weekly

The Ultimate Tramp Stamp

Look VERY carefully. Is she serious? I hope that was photoshopped.

The Notebook 2

It had been rumored in the tabloids: Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling - reunited! However, it was only gossip and speculation. Our fragile hearts weren't ready to believe again. "Too soon," we said. "Too soon." But then, last night, love went out for coffee. The couple was spotted in Toronto sharing a tender moment and it was exactly like The Notebook! YEEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!! Except this time with more pastries and no one has Alzheimer's yet. *sigh*

Because We Need MORE Caffeine

Expanding its reach outside of energy drinks for the first time, Red Bull releases a cola. From Red Bull, makers of one of the scariest chemicals created in the last couple of decades, comes an all-natural cola, made with coca leaf, kola nuts, ginger, mustard seeds and more.

This Is Too Sad For Me

A gorilla at a zoo in the German city of Muenster is refusing to let go of her dead baby's body several days after it died of unknown causes.

The gorilla at a German zoo has been carrying around her dead baby since he died last week.

Allwetter Zoo spokeswoman Ilona Zuehlke says the 3-month-old male baby died on Saturday but its 11-year-old mother continues to carry its body around. Zuehlke says such behavior is not uncommon to gorillas. Zuehlke says the mother "is mourning and must say goodbye." The mother gorilla is named Gana.

Why Do Magazines Feel the Need to Recreate?

Here is Kim Kardashian imitating the iconic Calvin Klein ad featuring Brooke Shields... if you REALLY must recreate, I think you have to make sure you look better than the original. At least this wasn't as bad as the Lindsay Lohan/Marilyn Monroe recreation....

Because Michael Phelps Humor Is SOOO Now

She Actually Looks Good Here

Paris Hilton actually looks good here... thoughts?

What Would You Do? Likely Not This...

This must come from my "non-survival" I freely tell everyone I know that if an alien spacecraft or Godzilla ran through downtown Miami, I would probably be unable to run and likely be squished or lasered. And if someone broke into my house? Probably take a back door and RUN!! Well, not Leda Smith.

When 85-year-old Leda Smith from Pennsylvania spotted a 17-year-old would-be burglar inside her home, she knew just what to do, "I just walked right past him to the bedroom and got my gun." She then held the boy hostage with her .22-caliber revolver while she made him call 911, and then waited with him, gun ready, until the police came and arrested the boy for attempted burglary and other related offenses. Smith was excited about catching the burglar and hopes that she "broke up the (burglary) ring" that may be connected with a string of robberies in her neighborhood. SERIOUSLY?!?!?

Ummm....What Ever Happened to "Pro Con Con Pro?"

Check out this angry obituary that recently ran in the Times-Herald of Napa/Sonoma. “Dolores had no real hobbies,” it reads, “made no contribution to society and rarely shared a kind word or deed in her life.” There will be no service and apparently, the only thing this daughter/son will miss is having a good mother. The newspaper researched it- and it is sadly real.

Can You Imagine If The iPod Didn't Fall?

It isn't enough for Apple to have stores and have iPods sold in every known store...they're now sold in vending machines. Coming soon to an airport, department store and street corner near you...because I like making impulse purchases randomnly.


I love the headline of the linked article, "2 headed turtle victim of 5 finger discount". Someone gets paid to write these things...hopefully, not much.

Sad that people will just steal anything... and likely wind up killing it because they don't know how to care for it.

Some People Just Have Too Much Time On Their Hands

In case you can't tell.. that's a CHEESEBURGER.

Interesting Name

It's Carrie Underwood!

So, Allure defintiely gave her a nose job, maybe a small chin implant, a browlift and something is different about her lips- longer than normal?

Guess Who?

Magazine editors NEED to stop these shit photoshopping jobs. I seriously didn't even know who this was on my 5th guess! So who do you think it is? I thought Molly Sims for sure.


I can't believe this dude! Disgusted with losing on points in the semi-finals against the later gold medalist Andrea Minguzzi, Ara Abrahamian tossed his bronze medal onto the wrestling mat after receiving it and left. SERIOUSLY?

If You Care... (I Feel A Breeze of Ignore Coming On)

The cast of America's Next Top Model Cycle 11, which premieres Wednesday September 3 has been revealed. MORE INTERESTING though is that it turns out that Tyra has removed the "woman born woman" clause from the qualifications....So, this cycle has the first ever transgendered contestant! Also, there appears to be no plus-sized chick this cycle. But the fun part is to guess which one!!!

Answer: Third from right in bottom row (army green top and shorts)!

I Love This!

The Soup ran a clip of an interview with America Ferrera and Blake Lively while they were promoting The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 on Good Day LA. After the conversation turns to Gossip Girl just watch America fiddling with her fingers, and the look on her face. Priceless! I love it, because I hate Gossip Girls too!

Why Would Someone Do This?

Several Burger King employees in Ohio are looking for new jobs after this Internet video surfaced of one worker bathing in a restaurant sink, reported Tuesday.

The video, which was posted on by an employee calling himself “Mr. Unstable,” shows the teen taking a nude bubble bath in a large stainless steel sink as other employees, as a manager looked on.... and he did this for his birthday?!?!?! People in Ohio need to find something else to do.,2933,402264,00.html

This Is Why You Don't Go Swimming Naked

Not Appetizing...At All

Check out this photo of a wedding cake made with avocado, edamame, wasabi, raw salmon, tuna and roe. Topped with wasabi icing and drizzled in soy sauce... what a great end to a meal. This seems absurdely disgusting way to end a wedding dinner... and I like sushi generally!

Did She Steal Kim's Buttpads?

While the story is supposed to be that Tila Tequila allegedly has a new girlfriend and is "beaming"... I wanted to point out that her butt looks HUGE out of nowhere. Is she wearing butt pads? Does everyone do that now?

For people that CARE (who?!?) People reports: "A beaming Tequila told PEOPLE she “didn’t want to jinx anything” about their relationship, but said she was very happy. Semel, however, happily shared her feelings for the MTV reality star. “I’d seen the show [A Shot at Love] and just needed to meet her…and it just happened,” Semel says of Tequila. Now the “best friends” are content to lay in bed watching movies, share clothes and makeup and steer clear of drama." cute. NOT.

What Happened to His Shirt?

What happened to Alan Cummings shirt? I know he's a bit odd...but why must he look odd as well? And where is it appropriate to wear just a vest? A movie premiere??!? SERIOUSLY!!?!?

Terrible.... TERRIBLE

This will not help Ashanti make a comeback.

This Will Surely Get the Boys Turned On

What would this be for? A sad trout face on your crotch and a santa hat? HIDS. This was for a contest for "up and coming" designers... I seriously hope this doesn't catch.

Designer Condoms

Designers will stop at nothing to make an extra buck. I guess you gotta do what you gotta do in this economy. But seriously - Condom making? I guess it’s not just for condom companies any more, because Marc Jacobs feels qualified to market and sell condoms too. What if Marc Jacobs had a whole line of items you usually buy in the drugstone? Designer tampons, designer ibuprofen, designer Snickers Bars, designer Sudafed... where would it end?

WTF is going on with Katie Holmes' jeans? I can only imagine what they would look like on someone who isn't 110 pounds. HIDS.

Want That Wide-Eyed Anime Girl Look?

This just looks weird! But these contacts are just an optical illusion essentially. They are obviously tinted, but tinted more prominently in the extra-wide outer ring. So, the result (like the little anime girls) is the appearance of a bigger, wider iris. It looks mildly strange on this girl (because I think she has larger eyes than normal), but it looks kind of good on others. What do you think?

I Want An Invisibility Cloak!

Apparently, Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak is closer to being realized than we think! I was just reading that scientists have developed what they are calling a “metamaterial,” a three-dimensional fabric that can reverse the natural direction of light. While still in its early stages of development, researchers say that the material could very well yield the world’s first actual (i.e. not in a sci-fi novel) invisibility cloak. Now would be a good time to start recording those “fly on the wall” fantasies.

The Apple Certainly Doesn't Fall From The Tree

Reese Witherspoon's daughter is a spitting image of her!

Born on 8/8/08 at 8:08 and Weighing 8 Pounds, 8 Ounces

Babies Hailey Jo Hauer and Xander Jace Riniker, both born at 8:08 a.m. on 8/8/08, weighing 8 pounds, 8 ounces, in neighboring states.

Xander, born at St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is the eighth grandchild for his mother's parents. And he's not the only one in his family with an unusual birthday: His 2-year-old brother, Kael, was born on 4/5/06.

Lindsey Hauer thought staff at Lake Region Hospital in Minnesota were joking when they told her the time of her daughter's birth. And then she got a call from the birthing suite noting Hailey's weight. Nurse Jenny Harstad joked that she tried to shrink the baby to 18 inches from her actual 19.5 inches.

Those are lucky babies!

Is Beyonce Pulling A Michael?

Cosmetics company L’Oreal has denied that it lightened Beyonce’s skin tone for an ad — after gossip-site posted comparison pictures of Knowles promoting Feria looking noticably paler and lighter than usual. “We highly value our relationship with Ms. Knowles. It is categorically untrue that L’Oreal Paris altered Ms. Knowles’ features or skin tone in the campaign for Feria hair color,” the Paris-based company said in a statement to the Associated Press. Knowles’ representative declined further comment — but I think the comparison photos speak for themselves.

Did Hilary Get Fake Ones?

They are sitting a bit high and apart...

What Everyone Needs!

This Beer Belt costs $18 from Urban Outfitters and holds six cans or bottles. But I assume if you're buying this you'll be carrying bottles. And not just because they're classier (although they are), but to carry six cans, you just put your belt through a loop in one of those plastic 6-pack carriers that strangles birds. But whichever way you go, there's one thing for certain: you'll be looking damn good.

Just In Case...

Just in case you haven't seen it... Paris Hilton's "Presidential" ad. Admittedly kind of clever and dare I say it - clever.

Just What I Need...Another Reason To Lose My Current Camera

Was just on the Sony Style site... love the new DSC-T700 camera. Has all the usual features their latest Cyber-shot cameras have (large touch screen, internal memory, etc...). But this is actually going to be thinner than ever! Comes out in September, but be ready to shell out around $400.

Wake n' Bacon

Let me introduce you to the Wake n' Bacon. BRILLIANT for people on the Atkins Diet. The Wake n' Bacon is a collaborative alarm clock design by Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini and Hsiao-huh Hsu. It wakes you up with the delicious scent of bacon instead of beeping. How?

A frozen strip of bacon is placed in Wake n' Bacon the night before. Because there is a 10 minute cooking time, the clock is set to go off 10 minutes before the desired waking time. Once the alarm goes off, the clock it sends a signal to a small speaker to generate the alarm sound. Then that signal is re-routed by a microchip that in responds by sending a signal to a relay that throws the switch to power two halogen lamps that slow-cook the bacon in about 10 minutes.

Simple as that. No loud noises, no breaking your alarm, just delicious bacon. Now what you need to do is keep a mini-fridge by the bed so you can toss in another piece, hit snooze, and ten minutes later: more bacon.

Not A Good Look

I guess I've been heavy handed with the Kim Kardashian posts lately...but seriously, WTF is she wearing here?

My Butt Could Usse A Lift

I was cruising the Frederick's of Hollywood site (don't ask why and don't use your imagination). Anyways, came across these lacy rear lifters. What is that you say? A push-up bras for your butt... now what will they think of next? This looks like it comes straight from a spy magazine and you can hide your gun in the garter portion. Maybe this is what Kim Kardashian wears all the time... hmmm....

Even Stretching Is Funny

When people are funny, I guess everything they do is funny. Just posting a candid of Steve Carrell stretching before a run. I don't know why I find it amusing, but I do. Perhaps its the length of the shorts?

Drool...Double Drool

I love Dean & Deluca and I love lobster rolls. So, you can only imagine how excited I was when I saw that Dean & Deluca is sending its customers Maine-caught lobster in one of two rolls this summer: light mayo, lemon and celery or mayo and tarragon. Right now, the lobster is prime to eat, because it's weeks before shedder season when lobsters molt, meaning soft shells and wimpy meat.

As far as fresh lobster goes, it's "reasonably" priced at $135 for eight rolls (plus $35 for mandatory next day shipping). However, I by no means mean to suggest that this is a deal. It's Dean & Deluca after all- but as always, you pay for quality.

But even if no decadent picnics are in your future, at least get on the Dean & Deluca mailing, because it's basically like Playboy for foodies.

This Is All Wrong...

If Mariah Carey’s sexy jam was meant to be sung into a webcam by anyone, it was definitely this extremely young, completely unsupervised little kid. SOmewhere out there, Michael Jackson is very happy...

Also, I thought Andre The Giant was dead. Turns out he’s been in Jersey this whole time, working as a “f*cking lumberjack.” [Note: If you watch any of this, make sure you start at 5:50]. Classic, because MTV True Life, "Jersey Shore" wasn't enough to change your mind.

Seriously, what the hell is it??

This morning on AOL they showed this photo of a strange creature that washed up on shore in Montauk, NY. Looks something like what you might think a mythical creature would look like. Maybe a devil dog or Chapacabra? They wrote that perhaps it just an unfortunate pug, turtle or raccoon. Ok, seriously, I have NEVER seen a PUG or RACCOON with a BEAK!!! And what's with the weird arms and hand things?? That's just odd and creepy!
