Throw away your push-up bras, ladies. Bigger boobs are only a few cellphone calls away. A researcher in Tokyo, Japan has developed a ringtone to increase your bust size.
It’s been proven that music and sound can affect your mind, but this mad scientist says they can also affect your physical appearance. To test his theory, Hideto Tomabechi has embedded a subliminal sound in women’s cellphone rings that mimics the noise of a crying baby.
Poor Britney Spears. She’s just trying to do the Circus thing, not get committed and eat some Taco Bell, y’all, but things just haven’t been going her way. The latest patriarchal figure chastising her is the Westboro Baptist Church. These are the same radical Christians that picket the funerals of soldiers and hates gays. For some reason, they’ve chosen Britney Spears as their next target. The group from Kansas has decided to protest Spears’ April 2nd show in Kansas City.
The news release promoting the picketing spews lovely lines like:
“Just you wait — YOU WILL EAT YOUR BABIES!…Britney will REALLY try to get custody of her hell-spawn back when she gets hungry enough! … God Hates Britney Spears!”
If there was a legitimate concern there I missed it among all the crazy.
You know it’s bad when I’m getting my fashion news from Gizmodo. Not that I don’t love Gizmodo, but it’s not usually the first place I look to when I’m seeking haute couture.
However, when the clothes happen to be made from some very colorful ethernet cables, the connection makes a little more sense… well as much sense as ethernet cable couture makes.
This high tech headgear appeared in a recent fashion show in Medellin, Colombia. It’s the work of students from the Pontificia Bolivariana University in Medellin. Someone out to check if there was a Comp USA going-out-of-business sale nearby.

Personalized videos have a sort of kitschy charm. I remember back when I was younger, before the technology of personalized videos, when the gift de jour was personalized books and casettes. I had a recording of a song about some alien who was searching the solar system for my present. More recently, “Elf Yourself” spread as a popular holiday laugh on the internet.
We’re a culture obsessed with celebrities. We want to know everything about them, from their favorite color to their favorite sex position. However, sometimes they let us in on a little too much information.
As much as we crave a peak into their real lives, there are some things better left to the imagination. As in, don’t tell me and I won’t worry about imagining it.
Of course, there seems to be a double standard. When men talk about the dirty details, it’s to be expected. When women talk about the dirty details, it’s shocking. Perhaps for that reason, their quotes stand out more. We found a few at Lemondrop and added many more good TMIs.
Read on for some serious overshares… but don’t blame me if you’re stuck picturing Joan Rivers having tantric sex.
It was a good week for women in their 40s. Valerie Bertinelli, best known as a child star on One Day at a Time, has recently reappeared on the scene as a spokesperson for Jenny Craig. As you can see from the above People magazine cover, Jenny Craig did some mighty good work for Valerie. The 48-year-old’s body puts many a 20-year-old’s to shame. Sorry, Kirstie Allie, I think you did it wrong.
Valerie’s not the only one making fortysomething look damn good these days. Former model Cindy Crawford clearly hasn’t let selling couches get in the way of working on her figure. I think this shoot from Allure magazine says it all:
Now we don’t want to get labeled as pornography so we’ll crop the picture here, but you can imagine what the rest looks like. Isn’t this a tad racy for Allure? But stripping down and getting sudsed up is definitely one way of saying a big old “f*** you” to anyone who thinks you look old.
Last week tabloids were abuzz about a video that allegedly shows LeAnn Rimes locking lips with her married co-star Eddie Cirbian. He’s married but not to her. She’s married but not to him. Thus, the scandalous erupted.
He’s denied it, she’s denied it and LeAnn Rimes maybe-gay maybe-not-gay husband Dean Sheremet has denied it.
What’s left to do in this situation? Well, if you’re a website that centers around and encourages infidelity, you shameless insert yourself into the fracas. AshleyMadison.com, a site whose motto is “Life is Short. Have an Affair,” has loudly proclaimed that they’ve offered Rimes a free lifetime membership. That way she can engage in her illicit affairs in a much better, more secretive way. The generosity is astounding.
As a North Face Girl myself, I can more than appreciate the University of Michigan (of course) Friar’s Club’s ode in “Northface Girl.” While I’ve been told abroad that the North Face symbol might as well be the American flag, it’s probably more accurate to say its the quintessential sorority girl symbol.
