Nice Hose

BY Web Intern in General

  It's kind of a miserable day out today. Dreary, drizzly, gray. But don't worry, I know what will make you feel better. Meeting hot firefighters.  Tonight, from 7-10 at The Firestore , the firefighters from the 2010 calendar (now in stores) will be signing autographs and greeting their fans. Unfortunately you can't preview the calendar. (I desperately clicked on the photo of the cover a thousand times before I submitted to this fact.) But methinks ... Read More

Tim Burton At MoMA

BY Web Intern in General

  No, this is not an OMGICU sighting. This November, MoMA will be showing what sounds like an incredible retrospective of the director's work. The exhibit will follow Burton through his whole life, starting with rarely or never-before-seen drawings and amateur movies from his childhood and college days. Samples from his personal sketchbooks will be shown as well as drawings, paintings, storyboards, sculptures, puppets, flash animation, figurines and ... Read More
                In my home state of North Carolina, in the city of Greensboro,  young girls are being paid $1 a day for every day that they go without being pregnant. Normally I wouldn't agree with this type of monetary reward (I was never one of the lucky kids that got paid for stellar report cards growing up; my family went out for Mexican instead) but this program, supported by ...

I rolled. It rocked. After my somewhat embarrassing admission a few weeks ago that I couldn't be bike chic because I couldn't ride a bike, I had been not-to-patiently awaiting my Adult Learn to Ride course with Bike New York. Well, it was last weekend and it was fantastic. In just two hours I went from wobbly and terrified to zipping around the paved sports court where we were learning. I guess their method of teaching is a really good one. I'll explain ... Read More
OK, this is pretty great. A Dutch bedding designer, Snurk, partnered with charity to make a line of bedding that looks like cardboard boxes. Orders outside the Netherlands are handled by Dutch by Design, who will donate 30% of the profits to Centrepoint, a UK charity for homeless young people aged 16-25. They ship all over Europe and to the US, and you can contact them if you live in a country they don't list. You do have to buy the pillowcases separately, but ... Read More
We're not saying it's good. We're just saying you have to watch it: Maybe the tightness of the unitard squeezed the talent of right out of his cute butt? Share your own reviews of his performance here, a la Simon Cowell. ~Hannah Video courtesy of youtube.com ... Read More
             Unfortunately this isn't a magic trick.  These women are victims gone for good. According to the Toronto Star , the term 'missing woman' refers to an estimated group of 100 million women who 'should be alive but are not, because of unequal access to medical care, food and social services.' Siwan Anderson, an economics professor at the University of British Columbia, has made it her mission to look for the ... Read More
Engaging in some witty vigilante justice has never been more adorable, thanks to the wacky geniuses of the design collective Mixed Species. One of my favorites is the You Park Like Shit applique.                     We've all been there before: someone takes up three spaces, swipes your mirror, or boxes you in. Well, your days of teeth-gnashing, helpless weeping, and petty vandalism are over. Just slap one of ... Read More
In 2004, it was publicized in the South Korean media that popular actress Choi Jin-Sil was being physically abused by her husband Cho Sung-Min. Consequently the Shinhan construction company sued her for not fulfilling her duties as a spokesperson. According to Shinhan, Choi Jin-Sil being beaten by her husband meant that she violated her contract by getting bad publicity. Back then the lower courts did the logical and humane thing by ruling in favor of Choi ... Read More
