For The Nerd In Me...

I love Tetris... and now a Tetris dress! YES!!! I wonder if I can wear it around without looking TOO strange.

A Pretty Good Prenup for A Fake Marriage

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have reached an agreement on a pre-nup and will make their marriage "official" this week. According to TMZ: "We know Lamar and Khloe have orally agreed, but the deal is not yet inked. It's basically the same structure as we first reported when they began negotiating. Lamar's $33 million -- which he stands to make during his 4-year contract with the Lakers -- is out of bounds for Khloe. But Lamar will fund the joint account, and Khloe can do considerable damage with that. Again, as we reported, Khloe will get an annual lump sum, which will not go up or down throughout the marriage. We also know during the negotiations Khloe (with the help of her mom, Kris) got Lamar to agree to buy a nice, expensive house for both of them that will probably cost $5 million minimum."

RadarOnline has details on some of the demands Khloe was making and naturally it reads like a extortionist's shopping list: "A flat sum of about $500,000 for every year they were married, $25,000 a month in general support, their new house, a new luxury vehicle at the end of every lease cycle, $5,000 a month for shopping, $1,000 for beauty care, AND courtside Lakers tickets for everyone in her family."

Courtside lakers tickets for the whole family? Why would she go to a game if she weren't with him? I ain't sayin' she's a gold digger, but...


Bizarre -- or just outright awesome -- new Asian trend: little LED lights that attach to your eyelashes to make your eyes appear bigger and more noticeable... These are seriously perfect for Halloween! Yet, I wonder how safe it is to have a number of little LED lights right next to your eyeball - what if the light blows a fuse or heats up too much??

Lindsay Lohan...

How old is she? 25? It looks like she has gone through some rough living.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

Kim Kardashian looks ridiculously thin... or is it just me?

Admittedly Not Bad..

A mashup of Miley Cyrus' insufferable Party in the USA and Notorious B.I.G.'s Party and Bullshit that is surprisingly catchy.

A Workout And A Function

The Beer Bike was designed and created by Hopworks Urban Brewing of Portland, Oregon, and features two kegs and taps, plus a hot pizza storage unit. Impressive, but I can't even imagine pedaling two full kegs of beer around. I mean, those bitches are heavy.

Lady GaGa Wants All Eyes Down

I really don't understand why she always wants us to stare at her crotch. It just adds fuel to the fire!

A Bit Insincere If You Ask Me

So, Kanye "says" he's sorry for jumping on stage... but Beyonce's video was still the best of the decade.

Who Does That?

When Taylor Swift won Best Female Video for 'You Belong With Me,' Kanye jumped onstage, grabbed the mike from the country singer's hands and did what he does best and says, "Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'm a [sic] let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time," he yelled, to many boos.

Swift beat Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' for the award. And according to an MTV source, Kanye is getting booted from the show for his actions. When the camera panned to Beyonce, she looked visibly mortified. Meanwhile, Swift stood silently on the stage.

To make matters worse, Swift had to perform the song shortly after Kanye's outburst...WATCH IT!

Ice T is to Coco....

As Kanye West is to Amber Rose. UGH... What is going on with her ridiculously tacky outfits ALL the time? I am not sure this looks better than her prancing naked in every photo I see... it's a toss up at this point. And does anyone else thinks it looks like body paint?

Kind of Funny...

Kathy Griffin as Kate Goselin- not bad, not bad at all.

I Can't Believe This

So it turns out that uncertainly-gendered South African sprinter is both a woman and a man. She has no womb or ovaries, but she does have internal testes and three times the testosterone of a normal female. Seriously? Could anyone have really predicted this? It's still unclear whether she gets to keep her medal, officials say she probably won't get to race anymore.

Ummm... Is Elizabeth Taylor Falling On Hard Times?

Why is Elizabeth Taylor wearing Ed Hardy? Is "Diamonds" no longer selling?

Nerdy - Yet Daring - Prank

A group of MIT students climbed up the scaffolding of the campus' “Great Dome” (which looks like music bars) and installed seven notes. Those noted are the first seven notes of Rick Astley's “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

This totally rocks! Another cool wedding or party idea!

More Cute Japanese Items..

In Japan's unending quest to grow edibles shaped like other things comes these heart and star shaped cucumbers. "These cucumbers represent the cumulative efforts of an agricultural coop determined to make food preparation a little bit more exciting. Comprised of nine women in Chiba, a suburb of Tokyo, this grass roots organization cleverly uses plastic molds affixed to the stem of the plant, with which they can create heart and star shapes when the cucumber is sliced cross-wise. These romantic cucumbers are selling at fancy supermarkets in Tokyo and as specially ordered wedding gifts at ceremonies throughout Japan. They cost 300 yen each (about $2.50)."
I would buy these in a second... seriously, it may come to be that the cucumbers were somehow genetically altered and cause cancer. But damn, they are cute. I want one of these molds for Christmas!

How NOT To Private Message On Facebook...

Not real.... Please see this example of a 41-year old (idiot) Tracy T-something trying to send lover Michael a Facebook message expressing how much she loved him recently railing her but instead posting the note ON HER OWN WALL... and now it's all over the internet. Yet another reason why moms should not post on Facebook...

Getting A Tea Party Started...

I can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if you were to use these teabags are your next tea party... appropriately called "Striptea". What is up with that Chris Farley looking tea bag in the back? Seriously...

For The Movie Lovers...

100 years of special effects in 5 minutes... "You've come a long way, baby" seems to pop in mind.

This Is Just Cool...

The Bokeh filter is a $10 physical filter for your camera that turns out of focus light blurs in the background into shapes like hearts and stars and spirals (separate filter required for each). It works by magic... or just modern technology.

"One of the fastest growing fads in modern photography is bokeh shapes. Bokeh shapes are shapes of light in the blurred background of photos. These shapes are achieved by using a bokeh filter over the camera lens. Bokeh is a photography term derived from the Japanese word for blurred. Bokeh refers to the unfocused background in a photo. The Bokeh Filter is a simple filter that clips onto the end of your lens. This filter blocks out pieces of light that cause the bokeh (blur) in your images to take the shape of the filter."

Of course... when it's cute, it's Japanese. Next there will be a filter that will make your face look like Hello Kitty's or any the other Sanrio characters.

You've Got Mail..

A mailbox...that looks like a computer, "You've Got Mail." Seriously, people have way too much free time on their hands... and it's $230!!

Did Not Even Recognize Her...

Does this even look close to Carmen Electra? Oh.. the wonders of makeup!

Yup...Definitely Pregnant

Maybe I'm just used to seeing her extremely toned... but Kendra Wilkinson is definitely pregnant and definitely showing.

Just Say No

Lisa Turtle... what happened? She did not need botox...or anything else! She was so cute!

Just Makes Me Happy...

Happiest Turtle Ever from Henrik Edelbring on Vimeo.

Here's a turtle with just a very cool attitude about life, in case your Wednesday is flagging a bit and you need a pick-me-up. Admittedly not a very exciting video... just kind of peaceful...

Miley Cyrus- Role Model

Of course, perfect. How appropriate for young girls to watch... Miley Cyrus dancing on the pole. Give her a big round of applause...

Bobby Bottleservice....

This is hilarious... if you've ever spent more than one night in Miami-- then you know who this guy is -- perhaps not literally, but we all have our own name for him. You know- Tony Tables...heh.

Elephant Stuck In Drain Hole

Rescuers worked for 3 hours to get this little baby elephant named Stinky out of a drain hole. If you look closely, it looks like Stinky is crying! I don't think I've ever wanted to hug something so badly in my entire life...and yet it could sit on me and I would be crushed. Interesting how things like that work out...

If you MUST, click on the link to watch the news clip.


How is this "talent" discovered? He catches laptops with his butt?!?!? on a trampoline?!?! And how is the guy on target every time??? The last few seconds are just stressful...

This Takes It Too Far...

ALL of my friends are having babies... but, I admit that I'm still not totally hip with all of the trends. But honestly, please PLEASE don't tell me this isn't a new trend. What happened to the storks? Cigars?


This guy somehow manages to reach up and catch a foul ball bare-handed with one hand while holding his kid (who's holding his drink) with his other. Okay how is that baby holding that drink? The drink is the same size as the baby!!

Madonna Needs To Let Up From The Gym...

All those bulges and veins may look weird, but they all serve a distinct purpose... I guess I could have gone to the BODIES exhibition, or been a bio expert, but I'll just study this handy chart instead.

An Honest Portrayal...

I bet she isn't going to like the end result, but she's the one who sat there looking all fat and grumpy.... oooh, I wonder if her mom is going to actually pay for this.

How About A Toast...

Ok- screw the wedding dancers... this is the most effort I have seen go into a toast... amazing.

Now To Be Fair... It Was Warm

Everyone's favorite transgendered mayor, Stu Rasmussen, is under attack for wearing a “sexy dress” to a youth board meeting. In her defense, Mayor Stu says, “On the day in question, the temperature topped 90 degrees Fahrenheit with relative humidity over 50%. Hot and sticky. My attire was completely appropriate to the circumstances and I also received a number of compliments on it during the day.” So YPB readers, trashy or cute? See video of the dress in here.

The Panda Looks Scared...

Why is Shaq holding a panda? And more importantly, why does the panda look like it has this shocked face...

This Is Must Interesting....

Rhianna is having trouble with this breakup - a mohawk? I strangely kind of like it.

WTF?? No, Really...WTF?

Why is Lady GaGa always wearing the strangest things? I don't get it. Sometimes it's no pants, sometimes it's no top... why not just wear something normal? I think it's a strange inside joke with her and her friends...

Lady GaGa: Dude, I'm going to make a dress with Animal on it... like Animal from the Muppets.

Friend: No, you're not. I'll bet you ONE dollar you won't.

Lady GaGa: I'll do it. I will do it.

Friend: Fine, next time you're out. Wear this stuffed animal around your waist AND then do your makeup and face like Miss Piggy's.

Lady GaGa: DEAL....

20 Things Every Woman Should Do Before They Get Married

Saw this on and hearted it.... I can't say much, but I agree.
1. Live by herself for at least a year.
2. Live with someone else for at least a year.
3. Recover from a broken heart.
4. Have a vacation fling.
5. Take a road-trip with a group of girlfriends.
6. Relish sleeping in a queen-sized bed by herself.
7. Get her finances in order.
8. Learn to love her body.
9. Have sex with at least one person she’d never want to marry (or introduce to mom).
10. Find reliable birth control.
11. Pay off as much credit card debt and student loans as possible.
12. Spend way too much on a something frivolous.
13. Exorcise all past relationship demons.
14. Travel somewhere exotic.

20. Celebrate her 25th birthday
I would probably add: 21) To learn it's not always about you; and 22) It's ok if you don't talk 24/7.

Where Can I Get This...

In a woman's size medium?

Because There Aren't More Important Stories In the World...

CNN's headline news... Commander-In-Chief in MOM jeans!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.... seriously? Should he wear low rise True Religions?

Nice Try...

This little kit is part of a promotional campaign for Red Bull....the package contains all 17 of the natural ingredients in Red Bull. Pretty classy move PR maneuver since the latest news reports have found traces of cocaine in the drink... wait, is that a coca bean I see there?

How Does H&M Pull It Off?

On the heels of Matthew Williamson’s boldly printed summer line (which was pretty awesome), H&M just announced its next high-end collaboration with Jimmy Choo. Jimmy Choo for H&M will hit stores November 14, 2009 with shoe styles ranging from $60-$200– a steal compared to Jimmy Choo’s $500+ prices.

I definitely like what I'm seeing here and in the ads- but seriously whenever I walk into H&M, it looks like complete JUNK. What is up with that? Does all of this good stuff just fly off the shelf or do employees get first crack?

A Bit Extreme...

I've always thought that Mariah Carey needed to change up her videos and stop with the hole almost naked videos... it's seriously like she has had the same video for the last 20 years. Anyways, just saw some new photos from her new video "Obsessed" and she's definitely playing dress-up, sporting two manly looks (one looking similar to Eminem). I now think she needs to stick with her genre.

Newly Purchased...

I can't believe this is correct... I just purchased this bag for 60% off at Bloomingdales, but it is still full price online. Anyways, I love it... it is the perfect city messenger bag to run around the city - it's light, tons of compartments and the handles easily fit under your shoulder if you want to carry it as a handbag!

This Wouldn't Survive...

For even ten minutes in my office. This is probably the most delicious keyboard I've ever seen because I haven't seen a pizza one yet. Imagine if the keyboard lit on fire-- BONUS!!
Again, who has the time to do this stuff?? And why isn't it me?

What's Up...

With Britney Spears fried hair... and why is she sporting an engagement ring again??

Dress or Shirt?

Beyonce rocking this item for the BET Awards last night... can't decide if I like it or not... it's definitely short, but then she's young and this is a fun event... thoughts?

I do, however, think she could have done something more with her hair and makeup. Just looks kind of paired down in comparison to all the glitz and sequins of the dress.

The Occassional Wife

Ever since Judy Syfers wrote "Why I Want a Wife" in 1971, people have been using the word "wife" to refer to non-spouses who perform traditional "wifely" chores, like cleaning. The latest culprit: a service called The Occasional Wife.

Occasional Wife founder Kay Morrison writes, "The Occasional Wife is a concept born in my kitchen [sounds messy] during a morning discussion with my husband. It was one of those days when neither our schedules nor our two young children were cooperating. At that point we realized that this family, our family, needed a 'wife.'"

Sociological Images makes a great commentary...

Not Serious, Right?

This woman snores like an angry Donald Duck... and has the facial expression to go with it. Interesting to say the least...

Causing a Fashion Stir...

The "World's Greatest Tennis Player Ever" dazzled the Wimbledon courts in some pretty fancy attire (for Wimbledon, where players are supposed to wear only all white). He even brought a gold manbag to match his Sgt. Pepper warm-up suit. And then he dominated his opponent in straight sets, so whatever, keep the sparkles coming. Now let's be honest, he barely has hints of gold... do people really care this much? The bag.. ok, that is a bit much.

That's Some Creativity...

This guy must really bring 'em in when he hits the beach...

Damn... I Will Have to Wait Until NEXT Father's Day to Get this Now...

The Potty Putter is a miniature golf game you can play while... on the can so to speak. Why this is entertaining is beyond me... what ever happened to the good ol' magazine or book?
The advertisement is even better to me, "You get home from a long day at work. The kids are bothering you. The wife is being her lovely self. All you want to do is practice your putt but you don't have the time to hit the course for a few weeks. Well why not work out the kinks in your putting game with our new Potty Putter?" So, if the whole world is "bothering" you- lock yourself up in the bathroom and sit on the toilet for golf?

A "Different" Alice in Wonderland...

USA Today has published new images from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland featuring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. Not to be weird, but Johnny Depp looks a little like Elijah Wood there...

I'm Going With Tacky...

Call me crazy or conservative... but every week, I indulge in my weekly manicure and get french. I just like the way it looks I suppose. However, I love color as well- but for some reason, not on me. Fine. However, where I draw the line is when people start adding crazy nail art and rhinestones... ESPECIALLY on their toes.

So, it's no surprise to me that when Sarah Palin went to go speak at a recent autism fundraiser in New York, the press picked up on her red toe nail polish with a constellation of white dogs over her big toe. Isn't this for teens?

Guess not, because Roxanne Valinotti, a Creative Nail Design Ambassador says, "Trendy! The toes are a great clue inside a person's alter ego ... her blinged out toes suggest she is a free spirit...Rhinestones or glitter applied over wet polish with a coat of topcoat to seal."

ICK and double ick for me.

What Is A Pgymy Jerboa?

I'm not really sure myself... but this thing is ridiculously cute in that ugly duckling sort of way. :) Happy Friday!

Perfect...This Shall Be My Next Car..

The new Rolls Royce 200EX has an automatic purse holder. And no, it's not the floor (although those work great too and come standard in most cars like the one I'm rolling in now, or the passenger seat). Check the video- but basically a little gripper arm automatically tightens against the purse to ensure your diamonds and gold bars don't fall out during travel. It's stupid. Because when I'm rich enough for a Rolls Royce I'll be damned if I'm carrying my own purse. No, it will be traveling in it's own Rolls Royce. Inside a diamond airplane. Made of platinum. Don't question my logic, peasant.

Not Real... Please Let This Not Be Real.

I'm really REALLY happy that I went through almost 25 years of school, just to see girls like Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad get paid $63-65,000 per episode! How many episodes are in a season? At least 12.... so that's over $600,000 to sit around and talk to your friends on an "unscripted" show. I am seriously doing something wrong. Really, really. wrong.

A "Different" Type of Beauty Pageant

In Thailand the “Miss Tiffiny Unlimited Sexy Star Contest” is full of tiny bikinis and sexy bodies, drawing in millions of viewers and adoring fans. Of course, the one catch is that the hot women are really “katoey”, transgender. Female or not they are gorgeous!

Chinese Rapunzel

Xie Qiuping's last haircut was in 1973, and now she holds the record with 16 feet of hair. When she travels, she has to wear it styled in a tiara and bring a special hair attendant along with her. 1973? How do you even go that long without a haircut... and why would you want to?
