Sean O'pry + H&M = HOT


Yea, usually I'm not a fan of Sean O'Pry, but ever since he grew his hair out, he's looking better every day. A whole lot better. Here he is from his latest H&M ads. That's freaking hot.

Robert Pattinson + Singing = Surprisingly Good

Yea, I zeroed in on Robert Pattinson for all the shallow reasons: crazy hair, perfectly proportioned features, great accent. But maybe there's something beyond those pretty eyes to justify such admiration! Here he is singing on the soundtrack for Twilight, the song is called "Never Think." Not nearly as bad as some other actor/singers, and while I wouldn't listen to this kind of music for days on end, it's still something nice for the ears.

Sarah Palin + Cathy Horyn = Maverick Fashion

Helpless Dame - On the Runway - Fashion - Style - New York Times Blog

Cathy Horyn of the New York Times dissects the whole fashion debacle. I know this is really past due, but I do like what Cathy Horyn has to say about 95% of the time.

In related news, go vote for Obama! And if you're in California, vote NO on Prop. 8! And if you're in Washington, vote for Chris Gregoire!

If You Don't Wanna Sleep Tonight

Condensed Soup: Larry King Demands Cleavage - E! Online

Watch this horrendous clip from VH1's "Scream Queens." Don't say I didn't warn you.

Zachary Levi - Shirt = Holy "Chuck"!

Also from the wonderful mind of Josh Schwartz: Zachary Levi as Chuck in "Chuck." Sweet, a-dork-able gratuity. Nerdy and cute, but really not at all. Just fuzzy and cut just right. It's on NBC, and since nobody's really watching it, maybe this will steer you in the right direction.

Thanks to here

Have You Been Watching "Gossip Girl"?

You really need to be watching what New York is calling "The Greatest Show of Our Time." That's right, "Gossip Girl." From the wonderful mind of Josh Schwartz comes the best show since "The O.C.," for which he also served as executive producer. It truly is like he learned all his mistakes the first time around and has since gone on to avoid the lame conventions of teen soaps. Oh wait, no he hasn't. He still uses the same lame conventions - teenage lesbianism! teenage drug use! teenager from the wrong side of the tracks! - but manages to make them SPECTACULAR. It's easy to hate the characters. Some of them are written that way. Take Dan Humphrey, the Brooklyn boy caught in the sadly not make-believe world known as the Upper East Side. He's supposed to be so noble and good and talented at writing, but everybody, including the writers, knows what a grade-A douchebag he is. And his sister Jenny? Somehow even more retarded and annoying. The best characters, the ones we empathize with most, are the two most conventionally diabolical and exceptionally shallow Upper East Siders, Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. They dress in the most absurdly exaggerated manner, they think almost entirely of themselves, and they are nothing like anybody you would ever like in real life. But nobody cares, because THEY'RE AWESOME. And Nate Archibald, aka Chace Crawford? Somewhere between hot and creepy. Weird man bangs, wooden acting, something that comes far too close to pedophilic incest to be acceptable...sounds awful, right? But he's just young, dumb, and full we'll let it slide for now. For now. In any case, you just need to watch this show, for your own sake!
