kim’s old face

Standard

Well I just spent the last three hours playing “surviving high school” on my phone. Yes, I did just admit to that. Ugh. Anyway, I’m back at home after suffering a devastating loss in Pasadena… Oh Badgers, two years in a row? Ouch.

Anyway, like any sane person, I like to read magazines on the plane ride home. This time I picked up a Glamour (I have yet to read it -oops) and an In Style or Star -I can never remember which tabloid is which. On the cover of this week’s In Style/Star Kim Kardashian and her old face (RIP) seem to take up the most space. It is actually insane how much she has changed her looks. I mean, you can obviously tell it’s still good ol’ Kim, but just like a 2.0 version or something updated. Oh, and I love how she’s like “UM I’VE ONLY HAD BOTOX… LIKE ONCE” -Riiiiiight… Seriously, just check out this picture comparison of her from 2006 and 2009:

Sad. She looks like a plasticized doll of herself. Here are some more pictures of Kim and her old face…

Don’t believe me that she has had work done? Ok then, here:

RIP OLD FACE KIM

we will miss you

and by “miss you” i mean “just die already, sry gurl”

what your mail says about you

Standard

Have you ever seen that episode of 30 Rock where Liz Lemon gets her new neighbor’s mail? Jon Hamm stars as the hottest, most perfect neighbor of all time, Dr. Drew Baird. Liz decides to snoop through his mail and finds herself becoming infatuated with a man who subscribes to “all the movie channels, including Starz,” and has a membership in the cheese of the month club.

Let’s face it, a lot of the time we judge other people by what they like and what they will pay for. Admit it, you’ve snooped through the magazines lying around your friend’s apartment. It’s okay, I do it too. Perhaps you go to their bookshelf or look to see what Netflix DVDs came in the mail. Again, we all do it.

Well, now I’ve compiled a list of different things that people pay for and what these items probably mean about them.

your guide to a sexy halloween

Standard

I feel like I should use some sort of winky face. 😉

I feel like winky faces make the most simple and unsexy things instantly sexier.

Anyway, Halloween is fast approaching and for girls all over the United States, it’s the time of year where you can get away with looking like a total slut. Tina Fey said it best in her script for the instant classic, Mean Girls.

In the real world, Halloween is a night when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In ‘Girl World’, Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

You really can’t, most likely because you’re probably dressed up like a bigger slut than your friend. Anyway, I was talking to my friend today and we were discussing how people come up with the funniest “sexy” costumes for Halloween. You can literally take anything -and I mean ANYTHING -and make it into “slutty”/”sexy.”

We thought of a great idea that history buffs will love. I present to you:

SLUTTY BETSY ROSS!

Known as the lady who made the first American flag, Betsy Ross is not only a classic figure from the Revolution, but she’s also a super easy Halloween costume.

There are certain ways you can pull off this outfit, the sluttiest one being just an American flag draped over your naked body. That might get a little cold though, especially for Sconnies. Instead, buy a large American flag t-shirt (50 bucks says they’re at Wal-Mart) and cut the top for a shoulder-baring look. From there, feel free to cut some more holes or even fade the colors with some bleach.

The next step is a simple pair of boyshorts, or maybe denim cutoffs if you’re really into that redneck look. You can also wear a bonnet if you feel like it, but it’s not required. Apply makeup and do your hair, the end result should be something like this:

There you go! Slutty Betty Ross. Ben Franklin would be so proud.

Halloween Costume Idea #1 -Jezebel.com blogger

I’m sure some of you have heard of the website Jezebel, which talks about fashion, sex, and celebrity culture for women. They’re the ones who got up in arms about Olivia Munn being hired on The Daily Show. And if you watch 30 Rock, Tina Fey spoofed them with a website called “Joan of Snark.” Tee hee.
I was having a hard time trying to come up with some Halloween costume ideas that were original yet not too obscure. I don’t really know how I thought of it, but I kind of like the idea if I do say so myself.
While not everyone has heard about Jezebel, I’m sure many have, including many of my college-aged friends. I know a lot of people who find it informational and interesting, but who also don’t take it too seriously and can laugh about how the bloggers get really passionate about certain things (*cough*Olivia Munn*cough*). I don’t mind Jezebel, in fact, I frequent the website pretty regularly. Yet, I definitely think Jezebel has kind of made itself into a parody of itself, which is sort of hard to understand but I think you’ll get it if and when you go to the site.
Anyway, let’s get on with the costume.  Read the rest of this entry

MANIC PIXIE DREAM BOY

Standard

You might have never heard of the term “manic pixie dream girl,” but she’s a popular stock character in many of your favorite movies. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The 500 Days of Summer, Almost Famous, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  Nathan Rabin, a graduate of UW-Madison who now works for The A.V. Club, coined the term a few years back when he reviewed Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown*. Rabin described the lead female character, played by Kirsten Dunst, as “that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.”

This pretty much means that she’s one of those characters that can be described with the following adjectives:

  • QUIRKY!
  • CHARMING!
  • IMPULSIVE!
  • HAPPY-GO-LUCKY (YET SUICIDAL)!
  • (UNIQUELY) BEAUTIFUL (BUT NEVER HOT)!
  • FLIRTY (AND SEXUAL BUT NOT REALLY SLUTTY UNTIL MONOGAMY)!
  • UNCONVENTIONAL!
They’re pretty much exactly like Kim Kardashian without being like Kim Kardashian at all. They are the female character that the male characters love because of their quirky sense of style and, like, willingness to just live life, you know?  A better example is Zooey Deschanel and EVERY SINGLE character she plays.
So what about the Manic Pixie Dream Boys for us girls? Well, my dear readers, you’re in luck! I have compiled a list, as well as attributes, of the MPDB.
