Hospitality mavens of the 1690s knew that, if you were expecting company, you’d do well to serve up a nice cold syllabub. (As the nursery rhyme goes, the queen of clubs made syllabubs.) Syllabub, a foamy, marvelous vehicle for wine and cream and fro…

I mean, it doesn't seem all that different than Bachelor Pad to me!
Most app stores just give you apps. Facebook's gives me a panic attack.
Seriously lady, wear gloves and a mask at least. Plus, a former CIA agent is ready to talk Roswell and just a reminder that Heath Ledger is dead.

A report from the Boston Globe today claims Romney left Bain Capital later than previously claimed, 2002 not 1999. The company says the issue is merely technical, and he was gone from the firm.
Marvel why would you do this to us? No clip would almost be better than this tease.
I just saw Brave, and it got me thinking about the grand tradition of Disney princesses. Brave is a Pixar movie, and its heroine, Merida, is a fairy-tale feminist. Disney princesses for the most part, are not. Most need to be rescued by their male l…

Mitt Romney's campaign often says he stayed at Bain Capital only until 1999, and isn't responsible for outsourcing that occurred after he left the company. But documents reported by the Boston Globe suggest otherwise. Romney may have accidentally suggested he was at Bain until 2002 in a primary debate saying “I worked at one company Bain for 25 years." Since Romney started at Bain in 1977, adding 25 years would have meant he left in 2002 according to his own count. Update An earlier post failed to note Romney had said the one company he worked at was Bain.

Can you even get your head around the idea that we once lived in a world where women were encouraged to GAIN WEIGHT and show off fuller figures? It's crazy! I can't believe it, and neither can Matt Lauer, who calls it "a world upside-down." And how!…

Stylistically, Tezuka doesn't exert as much direct influence over today's manga and anime as he did in the '60s, '70s, and '80s. You can still see clear nods in the gentle, good-natured design of games like Little King's Story, but the unfortunate f…

The very first thing that I said when I walked out of Magic Mike was: “I saw Olivia Munn’s boobs.” I mean, I knew she was in the movie, but I didn’t know that she’d be topless in the first few minutes of the film. Hell, I didn’t even know that she’d…
