Yes, Sporty is Still In

Fashion Gone Rogue

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2010: Sportiness + Minimalism = Modern Glamour.

Street-Eighties "french terry" material meets Runway-Eighties big-time sleeves. Remember when Scarlett O'Hara made a dress from her curtains? This is like the chick from Flashdance making a gown from her famous ripped-neck sweatshirt.

In a related story: Start working on your side braids right now, girls, because they're going to be big all season long.

Crazy Conspiracy Theories

Yesterday, Vogue Germany's 'Minnie Mouse Goes to Africa' editorial hit the interwebs. Today, Roy Disney died. Coincidence? I think not.

Hey, Strange Men, Anyone Interested in Helping Meghan McCain Unclog Her Plumbing?

Meghan McCain's Twitter messages continue to entertain. She recently attempted to "be an adult" (her phrase, not mine) and unclog her very own bath tub drain, but sent out a number of panicked Tweets when the application of Drano failed to magically remove the clog.

Really? Just any old plumber will do? Meghan, I know you've complained that your dad's political career has been hell for your sex life, but I had no idea it was this bad.

He Who Must Be Obeyed?

Putative human being Senator Joe Lieberman has reportedly convinced Senate Dems to drop the public option and Medicare buy-in for those over age 55. Senators, if you give in every time he throws a tantrum, this is what you get. Never mind that he is going against his own previously stated positions on both Medicare buy-in and the filibuster. I am convinced that Lieberman pulls this shit out of pure cussedness.

What the hell, Joe? WHAT THE FREAKING HELL.

I'm Considering Going as Lady Gaga, But I'm Afraid She'll be Ubiquitous

Costume Concern #1:
I'm afraid that Lady Gaga will be to Halloween 2009 what Sarah Palin was to Halloween 2008.

Costume Concern #2:
When in public, I like to wear pants.

Excellent Halloween Costumes from the Fashion Friends of Refinery 29

I call this one "Album covers you don't mind destroying."

Coffee, Tea, or Possible All-Crew Orgy?

A Northwest flight mysteriously over shot the Minneapolis airport by 150 miles, continuing into Wisconsin as 78 minutes of radio silence caused the FAA to ready fighter jets in Madison. Investigators suspect that the pilots may have fallen asleep, but really -- EVERYONE fell asleep at the same time? I'm thinking that the entire crew was otherwise occupied. The only other explanation is that Wisconsin is just that alluring. (I write this as a Wisconsinite.) The plane succumbed to our siren song.

Greetings - from the planet Armadillo-LobsterFeet. Paint these chicks green and Shatner could be picking them up on the original Star Trek.

Dig the color and pattern, though.

Three is a Trend, My Friend

That's it!

Cat fashion is officially in.

Thanks, Azzaro.

More Cat Fashion?

Cats are in!

I don't know about these, necessarily. Sorry, Miuccia, my love. But maybe these looks are an allusion to the classic country-and western Nudie suit? In that case - yes! Kittehs, pleez!

This Week in Imaginary News

Muammar Gaddafi has been ruling Libya for 40 years, all the while waiting for his chance to address the United Nations. Every year, he dries his tears, dons a saucy chapeau, and delivers his imaginary speech to his bathroom mirror, hairbrush in hand. Today, his fondest wish has been fulfilled. After a bracing breakfast of Jack and 'ludes, he ascended to the podium and began mumbling his way through 40 years of assorted "Deep Thoughts, by Muammar Gaddafi."

Stories that make me happy: New Yorkers Get Taste of Big Gay Ice Cream Truck

What exactly makes it the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck? Quint gets that question a lot.
"Every day, at least a couple of times,"
Quint says. "And every time, I say, 'I make it gay.' "
