Like Kanye West and cranky toddlers, oily skin can be a little high-maintenance. It often requires a tailored arsenal of skin-care products, an endless supply of oil-blotting sheets, and a powder compact on hand at all times. But with the right cleanser, minimizing your shine can require far less work. These 13 face washes instantly wipe out the oil you see now and prevent the oil you’d normally see crop up later for clean, matte skin that lasts.

Daniel Radcliffe Can’t Stop Laughing During ‘Water War’ With Jimmy Fallon

Hopefully Harry Potter brought his gillyweed.

“Victor Frankenstein” star Daniel Radcliffe took on Jimmy Fallon in a “Water War” on Tuesday, and he just couldn’t keep it together. Radcliffe started laughing almost immediately, and once he got to dump water on Fallon, he pretty much didn’t stop. 

Radcliffe played a wizard for most of his childhood, so he’s used to doing pretty amazing things. Once he shocked people by pretending he was the receptionist at Nylon magazine, and during a previous visit on “The Tonight Show,” he expertly rapped the “Alphabet Aerobics.” But that stuff aside, seeing Harry Potter apparently get hit by a giggling charm is just as magical as anything.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Not Listen to Social Media Gurus

2015-08-26-1440608172-7573495-ScreenShot20150815at3.11.08PM.png

TWITTER IS THE MANSON FAMILY I NEVER HAD

The social media Guru who said “Twitter should be used in moderation” could also probably stop at eating one Cheeto, or even open their eyes while sneezing. It’s a mindless addiction that screams “try and stop me!”.

Now, assuming you’re like most of us on Twitter, you live in a bunker, and manifest symptoms of mild autism and megalomania. You also have an abiding need to get something pointless and stupid off your chest.

So seriously, how do you start? Which key launches the nukes? It seems an endless salad bar without the spit guard. Somewhere you can come back for seconds, gloriously naked under that trench coat, and of course, wearing wet shoes.

THE GENE POOL COULD USE A DEEP END

Not to harsh your Twitter mellow, but what do you naturally aspire to? Ghost of soapy Tyler Durdan? Bikini Model spokesperson? Do you happily lick donuts? Well all you have to do is just close your eyes and click your heels, and take a shot of ether and get in touch with your weird side. It’s all waiting for you on the Internet’s wild wacked west.

You can be your own fantasy. The only thing limiting you are your limitations, and even that can snowball uphill on this thing.

HOW TO START

So for kicks, the first thing you do is follow some profoundly respected celebrity account, because by gosh, you’re both on Twitter and now practically related in an inbred way. You even feel kind of chummy, so you say ‘Hi’ to a Hilary or Katy or Kanye or Fitty, then wait for a response, and wait, all the while slipping deeper and deeper into Nyquil-tini haze.

The good news is you’re not alone — We all got our taste for Nyqil-tinis much the same way.

(At this point, most Twitter virgins experience Twitter fatigue, and must pop Twitter viagra. Just kidding, there is no Twitter viagra. Meth. We use meth).

THE SECRET TO LIFE IS KEEPING THE HOT FUDGE HOT

So now that you’ve been rebuffed, repulsed and repelled, any rational human, medicated or otherwise, would go for the pro-tip. Time to check in with the social media gurus. Y’know, the Swami guys with folded legs, sitting on mountain tops just typing on their laptops — right? Well, social media gurus are the Internet’s bottom feeders: they’ll just bite you on the butt, and feed on your bottom.

It’s the blind leading the blind into an open manhole. Bungee jumping into a burmese tiger trap. The Third base coach waving the runner into a snowblower.

I freely admit an unabashed lusting to become one of them. They’re like the High Priests of some primitive idolatrous cult. Hanging out on the deck of a Temple, just shooting the breeze after a hard day’s flinging sacrificial virgins into the volcano, and fertility rites. You just know you want into that action.

But let’s face it, Twitter is the dog run of social media. Land mines everywhere. You’re bound to step into a simmering pile of tweeting faux pas. Thankfully, with its attention span of a Jello shot, and collective memory loss, it’s always just like shaking the etch-a-sketch clean.

So it begs the question: Do you really need the social media guru sagacity and wisdom?

Here are some of my favorite rules not to follow very closely:

1. NEVER FOLLOW/FOLLOWBACK BLINDLY, IT HURTS YOUR BRAND

Because on Twitter, we aren’t people, we’re brands, and anything we post or do online affects the people following us. So be very careful not to give a sh**. Follow indiscriminately. Hit your daily following limit. Go directly to Twitter jail.

It’s a numbers game, and you only miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t drink. So bottoms up!

2.DON”T OBSESS OVER YOUR FOLLOWER COUNT

Seriously?

Your follower count is the dipstick of your relevancy — if you’re down a quart, you might as well leave it in the shop.

Again, Twitter is a numbers game — no one knows what’s really going on, so it’s the only indicator of your “eating at the cool table” factor. I can’t stress enough the importance of this, and it justifies its accomplishment by the most ruthless means possible. Attending Moabite fertility rites with stomach flu. Shipping off your in-firmed Eskimo grandparents on an ice floe as an amuse-bouche for polar bears. Promising you’ll call after a date and you don’t. It doesn’t matter. It’s for the greater good, your greater good.

And by the same token, if someone is not following you back after three days, unfollow them. If you have the time, block them. And if you have more time, also stick knitting needles into the ears and nostrils of their voodoo doll

Although personally, I start with the knitting needles on Day 2.

3. DIRECT MESSAGE:

OR:

TWITTER IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL SOMEONE DM’s

Whoa! Seriously? Never DM anyone! Never! Not even to poison control after Bill Cosby roofied you with radioactive Polonium 210.

Twitter is like self-medication for a broad spectrum of interesting characters, from the lithium-addled, insomniac vampires, to the bi-polar narcoleptic dominatrixes. No one wants to get a direct mail from a barnacle with suction cups, and a prescription for an electro-shock bite stick. The kind of stalkerish nut job who needs your opinion on what color thong is appropriate for an afternoon wedding. (Note to the style challenged: it’s all good).

Especially if you yourself have a nagging conscience. Blocking a Twitter crazy conjures up guilty visions of sugar plum fairies dancing on the subway platform, just before they jump. So avoid DMs as if it were the plague with bad breath.

3. DO FOLLOW PEOPLE YOU VALUE

OR:

MANY ARE CALLED, FEW ARE CHOSEN, AND EVEN LESS RSVP

Very few celebrities will send the elevator of success back down to the basement for us methane-breathing troglodytes. Unless they’re extraordinary human beings like Jim Gaffigan, who is quite literally the Dr. Albert Schweitzer of Comedians — just a kind, generous, giving human being and utterly hilarious — no wrong answers. But sadly, Jim can’t field everyone, so you have to blaze your own trail, while avoiding self-immolation like a Vietnamese Monk on a bender.

4. RETWEET REGULARLY

OR:

“WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO RAIN ON YOUR PARADE… PEE ON THEIRS

Again-Seriously?

There is no honor among thieves, and no respect between Twitterers. Trust me, you will inevitably be disappointed, and the “Block” button will seem so wussy and ineffectual, especially compared with what you really want to do to them. Instead of RTing, just hit the ‘I told You So’ button.

This is so high school, that is, if you graduated from John Wayne Gacy High with degree in clown costumes. It’s lousy with fond memories of anti-social non-reciprocation: The old: ‘I’ll scratch your back, and you excoriate mine with a raclette swivel’.

5. ALWAYS USE ORIGINAL CONTENT

10 Behaviors Middle-Aged People Need To Stop Doing Already

Who doesn’t love a good silly list? In the comments below, please add to our serious and not-so-serious list of things and habits we should all probably have shed by now.

1. The “meh” shrug.

The “meh” shrug has emerged as a Donald Trump trademark. Please, before the “meh” shrug becomes as ubiquitous as cell phones in restaurants, can we please rid ourselves of this smug expression? We are reminded of Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Neuman, who somewhat prophetically once asked, “How come we choose from just two people for President, and 50 for Miss America?” Now, did you just do a “meh” shrug when you read that?

 

2. The generational claim to the best. music. ever.

Yes, boomers owned Woodstock. They also can claim the British Invasion. But we can debate til the cows come home whether the music shaped the generation or was merely the background score to their coming of age. The fact that many boomers bemoaned how they had no idea what to listen to during the 1980s suggests that they weren’t trying very hard. The reality is that every generation has shunned the music of those that came later.  It’s time for boomers to stop with the claim of “nothing compares with The Grateful Dead” and asking their grandkids, “How can you listen to that stuff?” Truth is, weren’t The Animals a passing thing?

3. Buying furniture from Ikea.

Everyone appreciates how the Swedish put-it-together-yourself-if-you-dare furniture maker outfitted our first apartments. But like most first loves, we reach a point where it’s time to move on. As a matter of fact, most marriages would improve if there was a law that said all furniture must come preassembled. 

The one exception to our Ikea-is-for-kids rule is their meatballs. Actually they have some neat decorating stuff too. But nothing that needs assembling.

4. Hanging on to unframed prints.

If you haven’t done it by now, that poster you picked up at the museum gift shop in Amsterdam in 2004 isn’t really ever likely to see a frame or the light of day. Why clutter your closets with things like this when by now you should have learned that buying a postcard (that fits in your purse) of your favorite painting makes more sense.

5. Keeping incomplete sets of cutlery.

“No, no, I need the forks with the round handles, not with the wavy lines on them!” Who among us hasn’t screamed those precise words at a child who is helping set the table while the dinner guests are ringing the doorbell? The simplest solution is to get rid of all the partial sets of cutlery and just get one complete set. While it is inevitable that the occasional spoon must be sacrificed to the Great Garbage Disposal God, when your utensil set reaches a critical mass of missing pieces, it’s time to toss and repeat.

4. Displaying your CD collections.

With rare exception, your CD collection probably shouldn’t be the focal point of your living room when you are 50. That said, we feel differently about your old vinyl collection, although do you really want visitors rifling through your albums and leaving smudge marks with their dirty paws?

5. Hanging on to your kid’s first school backpack.

At some point, you must accept that your 25-year-old will grimace when he sees that adorable photo of his first day of kindergarten where he’s wrapped himself around your knees begging you not to leave. Take it to the bank: He certainly won’t ever use the backpack he’s pictured wearing. And no, your grandchildren likely won’t either. 

6. Stashing stuff under your bed.

Declutter the person and you declutter the mind. Under-the-bed storage is really just clutter. It largely consists of things that at one point you developed a sentimental and maybe even irrational attachment to. It’s stuff that you never use (or it wouldn’t be under the bed, would it?). Seriously, you never know what you’re going to find there. And giving your cat an additional hiding place will endear you to her, in her own way of course.

7. Accumulating piles of unopened mail.

First of all, why aren’t you opening your mail? Sure, most everything of importance is now handled online, but occasionally — stuck in between all the paper advertisements and unsolicited credit card offers — is something that is actually important. Collect your mail from the mailbox every day (overflowing mailboxes also tip off the bad guys that you may not be home) and spend 30 seconds dispensing with it.

 8. Thinking shot glasses, snow globes and refrigerator magnets  from your travels make you a collector.

There are many other ways to commemorate your travels besides identical Starbuck’s mugs that have different cities’ names on them. We prefer photos of you standing in front of the Eiffel Tower or posing by a Venetian gondola to shot glasses that were all manufactured in the same factory in China, no matter where you bought them. If you are going to buy souvenirs, why not at least have them be representative of the place you are visiting. Vermont maple syrup, Murano glass, French wine — all make more sense to us than a snow globe with the Hollywood sign in it. It doesn’t even ever snow there.

9. Covering your windows with anything other than drapes or blinds.

While you may have a soft spot for those Indian blankets we used to keep the sunlight from waking us up before noon in college, it’s a decorating style that will draw unwanted assumptions — and maybe even the attentions of Homeland Security — should you try it later in life. 

 10. Showing signs you could be a hoarder.

Can we just say this up front? We think porcelain dolls are a little creepy. They look creepy and the idea that they are dolls but you can’t play with them is also creepy. Not judging, mind you. The broader point is that most collections are just dust collectors. They clutter our shelves and our lives. They take up space. Do you really need them? Would the money you spend collecting those dolls could be put to a much better use, saying, buying a real doll for a real kid who doesn’t have one.

5 Reasons To Stop Pointing Your Pitchforks At ‘The Fat Jew’

The Fat Jew, aka Instagram star Josh Ostrovsky, has had a rough week. Accused by an ever-growing number of comedians and Internet creatives for stealing their work, he’s been called a Bogartist, a “hacky joke thief,” and “pure trash,” among other, less kind terms. Until now, he hasn’t said much of anything in his own defense.

In an interview with Vulture, we learned how he runs his 5.7-million-follower operation, and why he doesn’t consider himself a thief. 

Here’s why The Fat Jew thinks you should change your mind about him.

1. He knows why everyone is mad.

“I get it: I should have been providing attribution for all posts,” he told Vulture’s Jesse David Fox. “I now realize that if I couldn’t find a source for something, I probably shouldn’t have posted it in the first place.” 

2. He’s trying to add image credits, and correct misleading ones.

He’s got over 3,200 posts on Instagram as of this writing, the majority of which aren’t credited. “My email address is up. I urge people to reach out and say, ‘That’s my thing.’ I would love to give credit,” Ostrovsky said. Recalling the moment comedian Davon Magwood — who’s been vocal in the debate over crediting – contacted him, Ostrovsky explained:

“He reached out and was like, ‘Dude,’ and I was like, ‘Dude,’ and gave him credit.”

If he can’t figure out who created something, he assured Fox he’d take those photos down. Or one of his interns would — apparently he’s got “an army” of them “working out of the back of a nail salon in Queens.”

3. He doesn’t consider himself a comedian.

“I come from a writing background. That was my genesis,” Ostrovsky stated, adding later on that he’s consistently maintained himself to be “a commentator,” “a curator,” or a “performance artist.” 


It was never my intention for anyone to think all of this was mine. I want people to shine. I like when like some Monster Energy-wearing weirdo emails me and says, ‘You put up my tweet, now I’m the most popular kid in my school.’ That’s amazing, that’s what I’m going for.

 

4. He wants to be “a trusted voice of pop culture.”

While he has created his own content — be it a video of himself teaching a spin class for the homeless, or “sitting in hot tubs of guacamole” — Ostrovsky hopes people see him as a guy who sometimes makes funny stuff, and sometimes just comments on it. 

“It’s about shining light on things that are chill and taking a piss on things that are ridiculous,” he told Fox. In addition, Ostrovsky vehemently denies ever cropping out credit information on any of his posts himself, or knowingly stealing a joke.

“That’s not who I am or what I’m about.”

5. He understands how the Internet — and his own attitude — has changed since “The Fat Jew” got started.

Fox brought up a 2009 incident in which Ostrovsky publicly gave out comedian David Cross’ phone number — a huge no-no. These days, he’d never consider pulling the same stunt.

“I realize my voice has power, and I want to use it in a responsible way that everybody feels good about,” he explained, adding that “social change” stuff isn’t normally his speed.

“Taking this seriously is definitely a different perspective for me … If this situation is a part of Internet history, I just want to make sure that in 10 years, I’m on the right side of it,” he said.

To read the whole interview — it’s worth it – head to Vulture.

Stop What You’re Texting And Look At This New Emoticon

Hello, everyone. It is the year 2015. We still punctuate our emails and texts with little human faces; we’ve just moved on to emojis, where the faces are a little cuter. And there’s one that looks like poop.

We’re not too good for emoticons. They’re just not the novelty they once were in, say, 2001. Some we never really figured out — looking at you, weird dollar sign mouth (“:$ “) — so we stick to smiles and frowns. They’re pretty old news, TBH.

But what if we told you there’s a new emoticon? That you haven’t seen? Even though you’ve seen all of them? 

Behold!

What? Where? Why? Glad you asked. 

What it is: An apostrophe, a comma, a colon and a closed parenthetical mark make up this new sassy smiley. ‘,:) 

Where it came from: We found it on someone’s Tumblr, above the comment “10/10,” and was originally posted by user failsyndrome. It is not listed on Wikipedia’s list of emoticons. If you’ve been using it this whole time, congratulations on your genius, but no thanks for not sharing.

Why we need it: The human experience encompasses a wide range of emotions which are sometimes conveyed visually in the form of facial expressions. This one, to us, is the face you make when you go, “Really?” while you’re trying to size someone up in a friendly way but you’re right on the edge of getting real. Like this:

Also, we just want to point out that if it’s 2015 and people are still discovering new ways to anthropomorphize punctuation, then there are probably some other emoticons out there waiting to be found. Happy hunting.

9 Things Your Hair Colorist Wishes You’d Stop Doing

The relationship we all have with our hair colorist is one of the most intimate we have outside of our family and friends. We trust them to conceal our roots or gray hair, and fix our bad at-home dye jobs (more on this later). 

At the end of the day, your hair colorist has a job to do, but there are some key things you can do to make his or her life easier. Here’s a couple of bad habits your colorist wishes you’d break — after all, this is a relationship worth saving. 

1. Don’t be late for your hair appointment. “Five to 10 minutes late is understandable,” says Kyle White, the lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City. “Life happens, there’s traffic or the babysitter was late. I totally get it, but when you are consistently 20 minutes late for your appointment, it says one thing to me. You think your time is way more valuable then mine, and every other client that will be kept waiting because of you.” The pro’s advice: If you are more than 15 minutes late, apologize profusely and reschedule.

2. Don’t be dishonest about your hair history. ”If there’s color on your hair or it’s chemically straightened, we need to know,” White says. “I promise we won’t think any less of you if your hair is not 100 percent natural or you had to see someone else while you were summering in the Hamptons.” A colorist may get angry if they use the incorrect dye formula because a client fibbed about their hair being “virgin” or using a box color the week prior, White explained. “Always be honest,” he says. “It could be the difference between beautiful hair and head full of straw.”

3. Don’t wear white or an expensive designer outfit to get your hair dyed. L’Oréal Paris celebrity colorist Kari Hill says, “When people come for hair color application dressed completely in white — makes me nervous!” White adds, “Also, I’m betting that you won’t care what color your hair is if we get a huge glob of bleach on that Birken!”

4. Don’t forget to bring a picture“You know the saying ‘A picture says a thousand words.’ Well, that’s never truer than when it comes to color,” says White. Pro trick: look for a photograph of someone with a similar skin tone, eye color and natural base hair color as your own because those shades will probably work best and be the most achievable.

5. Don’t show up with wet or dirty hair. Hill notes that you can’t color wet hair, so it wastes time having to blow dry it first and then apply color. “There’s also a false belief that it’s better to color on very dirty hair [but] an excessive amount of hair product residue on strands can impede color application,” she says.

6. Don’t move around while you are getting your hair colored. “I swear sometimes I think the clients are more interested in reading magazines and sipping cappuccinos then they are about getting their hair done right,” says White. “If you’re a moving target, things get messed up, highlights get placed incorrectly or a spot may be missed.”

7. Don’t distract your hairdresser by talking non-stop. “There’s no denying that there is a strong social aspect to a hair appointment, and many of my best friends started out as clients,” he says. “Keep in mind that intricate haircuts and color are complex procedures that require a reasonable amount of concentration.”

8. Don’t have unrealistic expectations about the outcome. Having black hair with a desire to go blonde in under an hour is impossible, according to Hill. “It doesn’t work time-wise, and you will never be totally pleased with rushed results,” she says.

9. Don’t forget to protect your fresh new hair color from the sun. “I’m tired of hearing clients tell me that they spent time in the sun and then complain about their color changing,” says Hill. “Hair oxidizes without the proper protection! I always advise on wearing hats or headscarves, limiting sun exposure and using products with UV filters.”

5 Fashion Rules Short Girls Should Stop Following

For too long, girls with petite frames have been told what they can and cannot wear as a result of their short stature. Well, vertically challenged fashionistas: The buck stops here. Today, we’re debunking five common fashion myths regarding short girls everywhere. Read on for our styling tips and tricks for how to successfully break these archaic fashion rules once and for all.

petite-kourtney-kardashian-knee-high-gladiator-sandals
Knee-High Gladiator Sandals Will Swallow Your Legs: The key to wearing knee-high gladiators as a girl with shorter legs is balanced proportions. At 5’ tall, Kourtney Kardashian keeps from looking squat in the sandals by showing off her legs in shorts. A tailored romper is a great way to get the look without feeling like you’re revealing too much.

petite-marykate-ashley-olsen-flats
You Can Never Wear Flats: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (5’2” and 5’3”, respectively) prove you don’t have to teeter on your highest stilettos to look and feel dressed up. At this year’s CFDA Awards, the duo opted for flats over heels with their all-black ensembles. Follow their lead and expose just enough of your ankle so you don’t look like you’re drowning in your clothes.

petite-nicole-richie-maxi-dress
Maxi Lengths Will Overwhelm Your Frame: The secret to pulling off a maxidress if you have a petite frame lies in the waistline. Nicole Richie appears taller than her 5’1” frame actually measures, due to the nipped-in waistline, plus a hemline that hits right at the floor.

petite-vanessa-hudgens-midi-skirt
Midi Skirts Are Never Flattering: Since moving to NYC, 5’1” Vanessa Hudgens’ style has been spot-on. Most recently, she championed the midlength pencil skirt, proving to petite girls everywhere that this trend can also work for them. Go for a high-waisted silhouette and pair with a crop top to give the illusion of a longer legs.

petite-miroslava-duma-ankle-strap
Ankle-Strap Heels Will Make Your Legs Look Stumpy: Old fashion rules maintain that short girls should avoid ankle straps, for fear of looking too squat. But check out how Miroslava Duma, at 4’11” pulls them off. The strap on her sandal is on the thinner side, allowing her to reveal just the right amount of skin in a midlength dress.

Coming to Your Senses: How to Stop Your Negative Thinking

In this video, Eckhart Tolle explains the present moment is a portal to eliminate our negative thinking. He says as soon as you realize you are entering a non-harmonious state of mind, such as: worry, anxiety, anger, or unhappiness in any form, you’ve lost track of the present moment– you believe something else is more important.

Unknowingly, many people live in an unhappy state of mind, but are unaware of it. Eckhart likens this to a noisy refrigerator running in the background that you don’t hear any longer because you’ve become accustomed to it. Suddenly, the refrigerator breaks down and you notice the silence, and only then do you become aware there was a noisy refrigerator in the room. Your negative thoughts are the noisy refrigerator buzzing along.

Present moment awareness is the conscious redirecting of your thinking mind into the direct perception and inner alignment with the present moment. Eckhart refers to this process as, literally coming to your senses.

Be silent, look around and listen, become aware of your breathing. Be here now. There is nothing more important than the present moment. As you consciously enter the present moment the thinking mind with negative thoughts recedes, and you wake up from being immersed in the voice in your head.

Stop Catching Foul Balls While Holding Your Babies, You Lunatics

Something has gone awry in baseball. Back in the proverbial day, we caught foul balls, gently placed a celebratory hand in the air, quietly sat down and then got back to eating our peanuts or whatever, like normal, civilized people.

But at some point, something changed. No longer is it enough to simply catch a foul ball. Nowadays, you need to catch it in a way that separates you from the crowd, that temporarily elevates you from mere baseball fan to something akin to viral legend.

Was it Sportscenter that did this? The Internet? The evolution of man? Obama? No one can say for sure, but the point is that it happened. People are catching baseballs with beers, and they’re catching them with popcorn buckets. They’re catching them bare-handed and and they catching them backhanded. They’re catching them and dancing and they’re catching them and prancing.

And you know what? That’s all fine and good. Catch your foul balls with whatever receptacle you want. After all, this is America. Nothing wrong with a little show-boating. But there’s one new aspect of this trend that has been creeping up on us for some time that we need to talk about, if only because’s it’s gained some recent steam.

We’re talking about grabbing foul balls while holding babies, people.

cup

These aren’t the only examples we could find, either. There are so, so, so many of them. One baby catch? Fine. Two? Sure. Three? Now we all see what’s going on.

We get where you’re coming from, moms and dads. You’re cool parents with senses of coordination we can’t match. You love your child, but you also love the spotlight, and this is one of the few instances in which those two passions can be combined into a moment of you being you. Hell, if “we” were parents, “we’d” probably be right there next to you. Looks pretty fun to be honest. But we aren’t parents. We are without child. And that makes us the voice of reason in this particular situation.

So quite literally, we beg of you: Think of the children. It’s only a matter of time before an attempt at virality ends with a trip to the hospital and a national conversation about parenting. And as we all know, there is nothing worse than a national conversation about parenting. Don’t make it come to that.

Let’s Stop Blaming Millennials for Everything

“Are colleges too politically correct for comedy?” was the overhyped bird flu/shark attack/Ebola of the news recently. Having had a less-than-stellar experience performing comedy at a college, I wrote a piece about the idea. I discussed my university show gone awry, and it got a decent little amount of attention. Right place, right time.

Most topics are polarizing, but the idea colleges were too PC found a home where both conservatives and liberals could reside. From the Huffington Post to the Rush Limbaugh show, many agreed that Millennials needed to toughen up and take a joke. They turned a concept involving an institution — universities — into a generation war and finger pointing: “Generation Y is useless!”

I’m not sure that accomplishes anything, and in my piece, I went out of my way to avoid laying blame on the students.

I discussed what happened, and reported the information I was given. I did note the kids were too involved with socializing and their phones to be a good audience, but I didn’t insult them for not getting my jokes. I also didn’t say the students found me offensive; I noted the young woman in charge said I was. I discussed exactly what I thought the problem was: a hypersensitive institution unwilling to take a chance while pandering to sensitivity. That’s on the institution, not the students.

No child ever becomes who they are on their own. Someone raised Millennials and instilled quirks and sensitivities in them. It’s easy to make fun of them for getting participation ribbons and attaboys for doing nothing, but who hands those ribbons out? What parent first decided their precious child couldn’t take having hurt feelings, and why did the rest of society go along with that? Is it because latchkey kids became parents and didn’t want their kids to feel as unloved as they did? I don’t know, but I’m curious. Understanding the root cause of a problem should be more important than yelling at the end result.

I’d also say it is unfair to blame Millennials for the actions of a university, and here’s why: A few weeks after my disastrous college gig, I spent a weekend at The Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase. It’s a comedy club in, you guessed it, Ann Arbor, MI.

Ann Arbor is a college town, where the school and city intertwine. University means students, and students means Millennials. When young faces entered the comedy club before my first show, I grew slightly nervous. Not paranoid, but a smidge unsure of my abilities. After all, the last time I had been in front of members of their generation things hadn’t gone well.

Once on stage, I started slinging jokes and wave after wave of laughter washed over me. As they say in the business, “I destroyed.” After all four shows I left the stage overjoyed with the audience response to my nonsense. Members of Gen Y, Gen X, and Baby Boomer walked out of the showroom smiling and reaching for my hand; they all had a blast, and wanted to congratulate me on a job well done.

In those moments, I realized something simple: these people were at a comedy club. They came specifically to see comedy. They paid to see comedy. The students at my college show had shown up looking for something to do. Comedy was an afterthought, not their evening.

In my piece, I asked, “Are colleges destroying comedy?” The answer is no. Colleges may be hurting comedy on their own campuses, and by not allowing students to hear a variety of jokes and opinions they may be hurting that young person’s overall development, but they aren’t destroying comedy.

Comedy is doing just fine, and Millennials will laugh at funny when they make the conscious decision to step into a comedy venue and see it.

Maybe the best course of action isn’t to point fingers and blame an entire generation for how they were raised, but to confront the leaders of the PC movement. We know who they are, but I’m not going to name them here. Attention is their sustenance, and I will not offer them food of any sort. When they start their hashtag campaigns or social media assaults on comedy, however, I will mock them. I will mock, challenge, and call them out on their nonsense.

And I hope you’ll join me, whatever your age.

Snoop Dogg, Mike Huckabee and Timbaland — Stop Hating on Caitlyn Jenner, Now!

Snoop, Timbaland and Drake Bell, I’m surprised by your insensitivity to Caitlyn Jenner. But Connor Cruise and Mike Huckabee, your ignorance about transgender people is majorly dismaying. Get educated before you say another cruel word.

Caitlyn Jenner’s Haters — Snoop Dogg, Mike Huckabee and Others… Stop!

Caitlyn Jenner is on a mission to help other transgender people by revealing her life-long struggle — and she’s no doubt not surprised by haters like presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, Tom Cruise’s son, Connor Cruise, Drake Bell, Snoop Dogg and Timabaland. Caitlyn had to realistically know that not everyone would be thrilled by the revelation that her true female self had been hidden inside the body of a man — an Olympic hero, no less — for 65 years.

That’s largely why she waited so long living a lie, and feeling lonely and alone with her secret. But now, it’s time for her dis-ers to get with Caitlyn’s program, and to no longer live in ignorance about what it is to be a transgender person, like 700,000 people in the United States. None of them, like Caitlyn Jenner, asked to be born as a transgender person.

As Jenner explained in an ABC interview with Diane Sawyer, she always had “the soul of a female.” Transgender people don’t choose or want to have the soul of one sex and the body of another — it makes for an extremely difficult life. And this has nothing to do with sex drive. “It’s apples and oranges,” Jenner explained to Diane Sawyer. “There’s two different things here. Sexuality is who you personally are attracted to — who turns you on. But gender identity has to do with who you are as a person and your soul and who you identify with inside.”

Transgender Hatred Needs To Cease — Now!

Now let’s be clear here — it’s just rude to call Caitlyn a “science project” like Snoop Dogg did on Instagram on June 3. And it’s extremely insensitive to tell Caitlyn and the other hundreds of thousands of transgender people that “there are so many more important things that should be talked about…and SO MANY MORE IMPORTANT PEOPLE that actually deserve an award,” like Connor Cruise did in a cruel Twitter rant. Connor was referring to the ESPY Arthur Ashe Courage Award, which Caitlyn will receive on July 15. Connor has no idea of what it’s like to be born into such a difficult life — having the soul of one gender and body of another.

As we see with both Connor and Mike Huckabee, there are huge prejudices against transgender people and that’s why it is so courageous to very publicly acknowledge being transgender, as Caitlyn has done. Sadly, 41 percent of transgender people have attempted suicide. Isn’t that a clear indication of how tough their lives are? Just last January, 17-year-old transgender girl Leelah Alcorn killed herself after her conservatively religious parents refused to accept that she wanted to transition.

Leelah left a suicide note on her Tumblr saying:

“Please don’t be sad, it’s for the better. The life I would’ve lived isn’t worth living in… because I’m transgender… I feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body”.

Meanwhile, presidential candidate Mike Huckabee mocked transgender people in a speech last February, in which he laughingly said, “I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could take showers in P.E. I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today!'”

He also slammed cities for allowing transgender people to use public bathrooms. “Your 7-year-old daughter, if she goes into the restroom…can’t be offended if she’s greeted by a 42-year-old man who feels more like a woman than he does a man.” Huckabee clearly refuses to educate himself so that he understands that transgender people are not motivated by wanting to snoop on the other sex. That’s ridiculous!

Caitlyn Jenner’s Dissers Need To Educate Themselves

Huckabee should take a moment and read the words penned by Leelah in her suicide note:

My mom reacted extremely negatively telling me that it would be a phase, that I would never truly be a girl, that God doesn’t make mistakes… if you are reading this parents, please don’t tell this to your kids even if you are Christian or against transgender people…that won’t do anything but make them hate themself.

Mike Huckabee, it’s time to get off your pedestal and stop insulting transgender people. Drake Bell, Timbaland and Snoop: Stop making mean jokes, and Connor, get informed. Caitlyn is highly motivated to help improve the tortured lives and prevent the needless deaths of transgender people like Leelah. Misunderstanding transgender people and discrimination are real issuse, huge issues. It’s time to offer love, not hate.

Portland Homeless Stop Lewd Behavior By Pushing Over Porta Potty

Porta Potties are disgusting enough to begin with, so seeing a man repeatedly expose himselffrom inside one while the door is open understandably made some witnesses quite touchy.

Confronted with just such a situation on Thursday in Portland, Oregon, a group of homeless people took matters into their own hands. They forced a man to stop pleasing himself in the public toilet by tipping over the can while the alleged defiler was inside, KATU TV reports.

Witnesses said they were disgusted by a 48-year-old homeless man who brazenly touched himself in the john.

(He) was flashing us over and over again, and we asked him multiple times and told him to stop and he wouldn’t,” a woman said, according to Willamette Week.

Finally, somebody suggested toppling the toilet might be just the way to get the masturbating man to come around to their position against misusing the facilities.

The incident was immortalized on a cellphone video.

It worked. The grabby guy was covered in fecal matter when Portland Fire and Rescue crews arrived to free him, according to KOMONews.com.

Other than being covered in poop, the man was uninjured, KOIN.com reports.

Sgt. Willie Halliburton told the station the masturbator would not be cited for his actions.

“I think justice has been done,” he said. “I’m not going to cite him or anything. I’m just going to give him a stern warning.”

Carnegie Mellon Students Create Interactive Graphic Novel To Teach How To Stop Sexual Assault

A class at Carnegie Mellon University has created an interactive graphic novel aimed at helping students better understand how to spot warning signs and intervene to stop sexual assault in real social situations.

The online game, “Decisions that Matter,” walks users through various scenarios on campus. Your character might experience catcalling, notice someone being groped by a friend or go to a party where a sexual assault may or may not take place, depending on the choices you make. The game is meant to provide a better way for students to understand how an approach called “bystander intervention” actually works.

cmu decisions that matter

The class’ goal was to create something students wouldn’t “roll their eyes” at, unlike some other products on the market.

“We think this is really different — a welcome experience — that makes people want to think harder about it,” said Andy Norman, an adjunct faculty member in CMU’s philosophy department.

“One of the things I first said when they came to me,” said Jessica Klein, CMU’s coordinator of gender programs and sexual violence prevention, “I said, ‘I am so tired of these cheesy products with these standard stock photos of white people in a business setting.’ It’s so not relatable.”

In fact, the students are so pleased with their project, they’re offering it for free to other colleges to use in their freshman orientation programs. Klein said her office is discussing how they’ll incorporate it into their own schoolwide efforts. One possibility is that the school will hold small group sessions, perhaps within a fraternity or led by a resident adviser, where students can play through the game and then discuss it.

cmuahole

The interdisciplinary project course is designed to combine social sciences with technology in ways that address actual issues in society. The class, part of CMU’s Entertainment Technology Center, went through 30 revisions of the game’s script and play-tested the results. Students were trying to guard against elements “that sounded corny or sounded too preachy, or [where] the point was too obvious,” Norman said.

“They worked very hard to make sure the story is not predictable and the answers you are expected to give are not predictable,” he explained.

cmuummm
cmu well it might

Savannah Badalich, a student at the University of California, Los Angeles, noted with approval that the game includes “a diverse group of students saying things students would actually say.”

“I love that it covers sexual harassment, and in a real setting off the bat,” said Badalich, who founded the anti-rape group 7000 In Solidarity at UCLA. Sexual harassment is one of the hardest things to explain to students, she said — especially certain ideas, like how catcalling is actually harassment.

Badalich added that she hopes “Decisions that Matter” will eventually also incorporate stalking, intimate partner violence and LGBTQ relationships.

If the game doesn’t address those issues, then it “erases the experiences of LGBTQ survivors and male survivors,” said Tracey Vitchers, chair of the nonprofit advocacy group Students Active for Ending Rape.

“Other problematic aspects of ‘Decisions that Matter’ have to do with the positioning of the characters themselves,” Vitchers told The Huffington Post. “[Character] Natalie is positioned as having very little agency, which reinforces negative stereotypes about survivors and/or potential survivors. And Luke, her love interest, is positioned as an unintentional aggressor who simply doesn’t understand that what he is doing is wrong.”

Vitchers said she’s not a fan of most other products on the market, usually in the form of apps, that claim to offer a way for potential victims to stop attacks. While she agrees that bystander intervention can help create a community emphasis on stopping rape, Vitchers said she’s worried colleges will focus too much on these approaches at the expense of discussing consent.

But Klein hopes the game will help reach people who do not think they’re capable of perpetrating this type of violence, as well as people who might intervene in a situation.

“It’s so easy for people to say, ‘Well, I wouldn’t have gone to that place in the first place,’ and that’s so victim-blaming,” Klein said. “You don’t know what you would do unless you’re actually in that situation. [In this game], you’re confronting what you actually might do in that situation.”

Gina Rodriguez Shares ‘The Only Way To Stop Stereotypes’ In Hollywood

It’s no secret that Gina Rodriguez is an advocate for authentic portrayals of minorities in Hollywood. And for the 30-year-old “Jane The Virgin” star, the power to change the industry largely lies in the hands of actors.

As part of The Hollywood Reporter’s recent comedy actress roundtable, Rodriguez joined Lena Dunham (“Girls”), Amy Schumer (“Inside Amy Schumer”), Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) and Kate Mckinnon (“Saturday Night Live”). Both Rodriguez and Ross were vocal about the lack of roles in the industry for actresses of color.

When Ross asked the “Jane The Virgin” actress about her experience auditioning in Hollywood, Rodriguez said she makes it a point to avoid parts that rely on stereotypes.

“I remove myself instantly if something’s perpetuating a stereotype,” Rodriguez told THR. “But the only way to stop stereotypes is to say, ‘I’m going to wait for a journey that suits me.’”

“When you compromise, you don’t do your best work,” she added. “You’re only left with your integrity. You can’t take those Jimmy Choos with you!”

The Golden Globe-winning actress said Hollywood’s issue is one of being out of touch with other cultures rather than “hard-core racism.”

She added that it’s useful to show industry executives the financial benefits of diversity — pointing to the success of recent TV shows — rather than vilifying people.

It’s not the first time the Chicago native has spoken about the importance of choosing roles that align with her morals. After her critically acclaimed performance in the indie film “Filly Brown,” Rodriguez, who is of Puerto Rican descent, passed on an opportunity to star in Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” because she was waiting for a role that would shake up the portrayal of Latinos in Hollywood.

The actress opened up to The Huffington Post before the “Jane The Virgin” premiere last fall about turning down such a big opportunity.

“I didn’t choose ‘Jane’ over ‘Devious Maids,’ I just decided to pass on ‘Devious Maids,’ and that was two years ago,” Rodriguez said. “That was way before I knew ‘Jane’ even existed, but I knew that you practice what you preach and sometimes that comes with sacrifices you wish you didn’t have to make. There were times when I was like, ‘Why am I pulled so strongly to be a voice, to not keep my mouth shut? Why can’t I just keep my mouth shut, take the job, take the money and walk like everyone else?’ Because it’s scary. You’re afraid people are not going to want to work with you. You’re afraid people are going to think things about you for speaking up.”

“But if I don’t do it, then what? I’m going to just keep wanting somebody else to? If I don’t speak up, I’m just going to what? Sit around and complain and hope that somebody else will? No. I wasn’t raised like that,” she continued.

“If I want change, then I’ve got to do it. And if I want to do it, I’ve got to be that change. And that takes sacrifices that sometimes don’t pay the bills, you know?” she said. “And I’m OK with that.”

This Music Festival Knows It Can’t Stop People From Doing Drugs, So It’s Trying To Keep Them Safe Instead

The upcoming Lightning in a Bottle Music Festival, which starts Thursday in Bradley, California, is a drug-free event. But rather than pretend this label and any effort to enforce it will create a drug-repellant force field around the festival, organizers say they’re preparing for the inevitable: They know some drugs will find their way through security and into people’s bodies, so they’re offering a host of resources to help minimize the potential negative effects on users.

As part of this effort, Lightning in a Bottle and its coordinators at the Do Lab are partnering with two groups, DanceSafe — a health organization that focuses on harm reduction and education at music festivals and nightlife venues — and the Zendo Project — a program sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies that offers help to anyone going through a difficult experience while on psychedelic drugs.

Part of DanceSafe’s operation involves providing a judgment-free space to proactively address drug dangers before they emerge. The group believes educating people about potential problem signs associated with recreational drug use — often simple things like heat stroke, dehydration and even hyponatremia, a life-threatening condition brought on by drinking too much water — will help users seek treatment earlier rather than later. DanceSafe also offers condoms, earplugs, free water and an open line of communication to anyone who wants to talk about how they can make sure their good time doesn’t become a bad time.

Meanwhile, the Zendo Project offers what Stefanie Jones, nightlife community engagement manager for Drug Policy Alliance, a progressive nonprofit that advocates for drug policy reform, referred to as “mental health services” for people on psychedelic drugs. Anyone who may find themselves confused, upset, uncomfortable or in need of help anywhere else along their psychedelic trip can turn to one of the project’s trained therapists.

DanceSafe has also made a name for itself by offering on-site drug checking, which tells users which substances they actually have and how to use them responsibly. Jones told The Huffington Post that these services will not be available at Lightning in a Bottle due to concerns that organizers could be prosecuted under a federal law that prohibits the “maintaining of a drug-involved premise.”

Music festivals have attracted scrutiny in recent years following a spate of drug overdoses and drug-related deaths. With the growth of cheaper and ever-changing synthetic substances, the music festival drug market — where baggies of different colored powders and pills are often passed between strangers in porta-potties — is only getting harder and more risky to navigate.

Last year, a documentary filmmaker followed a group that offered drug testing services at popular festivals and found that 100 percent of the people who came to them thinking they had MDMA, also called “molly” or “ecstasy,” actually had bath salts, a term that has come to refer to any of a number of popular synthetic drugs. They also found examples of drugs being cut with powerful or dangerous adulterants that would almost certainly change a user’s predicted experience.

While these trends are frightening, they don’t mean fewer people are experimenting with drugs at festivals. This has led to some differing opinions on how to approach the problem.

In New York, the popular electronic music festival Electric Zoo rebooted in 2014, a year after two drug-related deaths made national headlines and forced the event to shut down a day early. Hoping to avoid another death or PR disaster, organizers opted for an enforcement-first approach. Here’s how Billboard described the scene:

In an effort to prevent against casualties, the festival has overcorrected and made widely known its use of high-tech cameras, drug-sniffing dogs and ramped-up security. The substance checkpoints are more thorough, requiring attendees to remove shoes, and cops — both in uniform and undercover — seemed to almost outnumber the fans.

Festival-goers were also required to watch an anti-drug PSA before attending, and organizers dispatched a group of medical students called “Zookeepers” to help with any emerging issues.

In past years, Lightning in a Bottle has also been targeted by intense drug enforcement activity. In 2013, when the event was held in Temecula, California, undercover officers arrested 58 people for drug-related offenses. Many of the suspects claimed they were coerced into selling drugs and accused officers of calling them “hippies” and “brain-dead retards.”

Organizers at Lightning in a Bottle have limited control over how law enforcement chooses to get involved with their event, but they are being more vocal than in years past about their harm-reduction policies.

While DanceSafe has been present at Lightning in a Bottle since 2013 and the Zendo Project joined last year, the festival is making a greater effort this time around to let attendees know that these services are available. They’ve built a “harm reduction” section into the festival’s official code of conduct and, according to DPA, will link to the page in a newsletter they send to attendees. The Zendo Project has also scheduled a basic training on Friday to tell attendees about its services.

After the festival ends, organizers will coordinate with Mutual Aid Response Services, a risk management consulting company, to evaluate the effectiveness of the services and the efforts to promote them, and to determine ways to better integrate these approaches into future events.

Harm reduction is one of many issues being championed by Lightning in a Bottle, which, according to its website, include encouraging people to think hard about whether they should wear a Native American headdress to the festival. To anyone coming from Coachella, the answer is no.

Jones said Lightning in a Bottle is one of the first festivals to get on board with DPA’s push to encourage groups to take more pragmatic approaches to drug use. A guide released by the group lays out the essential considerations and strategies for anyone planning a large-scale event.

And while Jones admitted there is still work to do to break the stigma surrounding drug use — including allowing for on-site drug checking so people can make sure they’re not about to eat rat poison — she praised Lightning in a Bottle for taking such an open and comprehensive stance to harm reduction.

“What they’re doing is a heroic,” Jones said. “They’re making every effort in a tough environment to keep their attendees safe.”

Chris Rock: I Won’t Be Alive To See Cops Stop Killing Black Kids

In support of the UK premiere of his flick, “Top Five,” comedian-actor Chris Rock conducted an interview with The Guardian, in which he shared his thoughts on everything from Hollywood’s ongoing diversity issues to Barack Obama’s presidency and police violence against black men in America.

During the interview Rock, who was pulled over by police on three separate occasions over the span of seven weeks, went on to reveal his feelings on America’s string of fatal police encounters.

It’s not that it’s gotten worse, it’s just that it’s part of the 24-hour news cycle. What’s weird is that it never happens to white kids. There’s no evidence that white youngsters are any less belligerent, you know? We can go to any Wall Street bar and they are way bigger assholes than in any other black bar. But will I see cops stop shooting black kids in my lifetime? Probably not.

5 Tips About How to Stop Thinking Like a Starving Artist

Most of my life I believed that if I went after a creative career I would struggle financially. It was deeply ingrained in my belief system. I would think about phrases like “poor starving artist” and “feast and famine are part of an artist’s life”. It was a nonsensical belief system that was very damaging to my motivation. I literally believed all artists or creative’s had a hard time.

2015-05-06-1430947342-2805449-towel.jpg

I also felt like if I enjoyed my work and my creative projects, somehow I shouldn’t be paid properly or at all. Because I get joy from design, writing and art it used to be hard to expect actual money from being creative. Some people don’t value the arts as much as others. I have found a wide range of appreciation towards artistic projects from other people. Many people I have met have a great appreciation for design, writing and paintings. Other people I have met don’t value it at all. So as you can see the attitude and value is very different depending on the person viewing the work. How you value your own work is the most important part when getting over old crappy belief systems. You must believe you are good enough and talented enough. The rest falls into place with more confidence each step of the way.

My second belief deeply ingrained in me was if people thought I was creative they did not think I was business savvy. So I had a silly thought that I could not be creative and business smart at the same time. I held onto this conflict for most of my life. I am now 38 and realized a couple of years ago that I needed to change my inner thoughts around creativity, business and art. My life and business changed drastically, once I switched my thinking around.

1. Find some audio tapes so you can replace your belief system around feeling like a starving artist.
Start listening to people, podcasts and audio that speak highly of creativity and art. Invite people into your life that respect and admire your work. Focus on telling yourself the opposite of what you believe about money and creativity. I personally found I had to completely change my way of thinking around my work and what I have to offer the world. It took serious focus and quite of bit of time listening to other positive words around the subject. Audio tapes about positive thinking, business and art became my new best friends.

2. Make more art!
I say F**k what other people think. Don’t be shy, don’t hold yourself back, and don’t stop being you creatively because you are afraid. The more you feel inhibited, do the opposite and jump into your creative side, go for it. Use the fear like it is oil to fire. Be stubborn and keep creating!

2015-05-06-1430948234-5727044-emailheader.jpg

3. Read more about what you feel afraid to learn, or think you can’t learn.
I felt uncomfortable around selling and marketing my own creations. So I switched my thinking and read as much business and marketing books I could possibly get my hands on. I hated this thought at first because all I wanted to do was design, draw, sketch, paint and write! It felt awful at first but once I took control, I felt so much better. The best part was, I felt more confident about my work in every way, including business. As soon as I faced my fears, I started earning more money for my creative efforts. The results felt instant!

4. Vulnerability brings great lessons in life.
Being vulnerable with your art, writing and creativity can be a huge step for some, including me. I always shied away from truly putting myself in front of people. I really disliked the feeling of possibly being rejected or feeling judged. I decided that my vulnerability was just what I needed to go forward. Nowadays if I feel vulnerable I take it as a sign that I need to do more of it. The rebel side of me comes out and I just make the leap into the unknown and see what happens. Feeling rejected is all part of the process. Of course we are going to get rejected sometimes but you can’t get a big fat “yes” if you don’t try. Trust me, the uncomfortable feelings soften and become less of an issue, the more you simmer with your own vulnerability.

2015-05-06-1430948075-3169133-femalelookingbeyond.jpg

5. Hide out for awhile and stop any outside influences from interrupting your change of thinking.
Changing how you perceive something takes time. You may need to back away from friends or family for a little while, until you get grounded on your new way of looking at creativity. For me, if I honor my ideas by executing them and being true to myself I then value my work in a much higher regard. Taking yourself seriously and working hard, can increase your creativity and trusting the process can open up opportunities as if by magic.

Inspiring 8-Year-Old Won’t Let A Tragic Accident Stop Her From Dancing

Alissa Sizemore was playing outside with her siblings one night in May 2014 when a UPS truck ran over her right leg. According to KSL.com, the 7-year-old’s foot couldn’t be saved.

At the time, Alissa’s dance teacher told the local news outlet, “She’ll dance again.” Mom Heather Sizemore recalls Alissa’s determination to do so. When the mom took Alissa’s sisters to their dance studio last summer for dance team placements, the little girl handed her mom her crutches and started to dance. “She hopped to the middle of the room and gave it her all. She wasn’t going to let anybody hold her back,” Heather told PEOPLE.

Members of the dancer’s hometown raised enough money for the little girl to get a prosthetic leg in September 2014 — a big contribution came from an 11-year-old girl who sold her prize pig to donate $ 10,000 to the Sizemore family. After receiving the limb, Alissa started rehearsing for her dance studio’s recital.

“Dancing has been my favorite thing since I was 4. I don’t have part of my leg, but I can’t let that stop me. I still want to dance,” Alissa told PEOPLE.

In late February, the now 8-year-old took the stage to perform a beautiful and inspiring routine to Colbie Caillat’s “Try,” and received a standing ovation.

Watch her performance above, and head over to PEOPLE to read more about Alissa.

Have Mercy and Stop With All the Puntastic 50 Shades of Grey Titles

Banana.
Hippopotamus.
Pineapple.
Habenero.

Whatever the safe word is, make it all stop.

It’s bad enough these books reside on the toilet tank of every grandma in the continental U.S., resulting in millions of awkward conversations on Thanksgiving afternoon about how Scoutmasters in the 1970s knew all the best knots, but every few minutes, there’s a new lifestyle blog post directly applying a 50 Shades purple-nurple to the sensitive part of our brains, and we, the reading public, can’t take it anymore.

We’re talking to you, regional falconry magazine and 50 Shades of Prey. And you, culinary blogger with 50 Blades of Bobby Flay. To the farm-themed Tumblrs touting 50 Sheds of Hay, the gossip rags with 50 Shades of Queen Bey and the bodybuilding articles offering 50 Shades of Whey, have mercy on us. Music blogs and 50 Fades of Dr. Dre? We can’t even.

Hey, P.T.O. newsletter featuring 50 Grades of Mrs. Barclay, those third graders know what you’re talking about, that’s why Jordan keeps tying his classmates to the merry-go-round during recess. And 50 Tirades about Santa’s Sleigh? Someone received coal instead of a ball gag at Christmas.

Hey, grandma, we love you, but please stop posting your latest adventures on Facebook. One click on 50 Shades of Grand Mistress May can undo a lifetime of cookies, especially if we see the leather outfit you wore while baking them.

To all the puntastic editors, bored headline scribes and overenthusiastic web article writers who secretly read a disturbing amount of vampire-based bondage fanfiction: this isn’t clever wordplay and social media relevance silk tied up in a bow, it’s Geneva Convention-level, mind-fracking. You’re all up in our headspace, and we are sincerely missing the days when the only numeric sexual reference was 69, because at least that didn’t show up on morning talk shows with giggles and rope.

So, please, pretty please with nipple clamps on top, cut out all the twisty Sebastian Grey references. Otherwise, we’re going all 50 Shades of Amal Clooney on your ass.

21 Things To Stop Giving A Shit About In 2015

As we enter a new year, there are many things to keep in mind: mantras to live by, resolutions to make, new goals to set. But January is also a great time to take stock of the things we’re wasting time, energy and stress on, and to, in the oft-quoted words of Elsa from “Frozen”: “Let it go.”

Below are 21 things we are going to stop giving a shit about in 2015. What would you add?

1. Juice cleanses. Let’s call a spade a spade and acknowledge that cleansing is less about health than about quick weight loss — and if that’s really your goal, there are healthier, longer-lasting ways to go about it. Solid foods FTW.

2. Wearing matching socks. One day we may find the land of lost single socks. But today is not that day.

3. Making plans with people you don’t actually want to see, to do things you don’t want to do. Obligation relationships aren’t good for anyone. And even if someone you adore is inviting you out, if you’d rather eat your own hand than go clubbing, it’s probably best to just say no.

4. People who don’t understand why Queen Bey’s feminism is important. Bye, haters.

5. Worrying about finding “the one.” More doing fun things, less stressing about one’s single status.

6. Breaking the Internet. If it ain’t broke, why break it?

7. Getting tons of “likes” on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram. Better to ‘gram your avocado toast and sunsets for your own enjoyment, “likes” be damned.

8. Anything “Princeton Mom” says. Single ladies don’t need her brand of “straight talk.” Neither do rape survivors, or any other women, for that matter.

9. FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). We’d rather focus on truly enjoying the things we are doing.

10. Being embarrassed about wearing yoga pants in public. Look, they’re comfy.

11. Losing that last five pounds. So many things taste better than skinny feels.

12. Wearing shoes that aren’t comfortable. Hobbling around in pain makes any experience about 100x less pleasant.

13. Worrying that a romantic relationship doesn’t check all the boxes on every “179,000 Ways To Know You’re In The Right Relationship” list on the Internet.

14. Feeling guilty about going to bed early. True love means never having to apologize for your REM cycles.

15. Feeling guilty about staying in bed late on a weekend day. Clearly, we just really love sleep.

16. Not “putting yourself out there” in ways that your (well-meaning) friends and family think you should be. If there’s something truly worth “getting out” for, you’ll be motivated.

17. Eating gluten-free. Unless, of course, you are actually allergic to gluten.

18. Planning something *~#epic~* for every birthday. Embrace simplicity. Day drinking at a bar or BBQing at a park can be just as fun (if not more fun) than having an expensive 28-person dinner followed by five other complicated activities.

19. Walking more Fitbit steps each day than your Fitbit “friends.” Exercise is wonderful for your physical and mental health. We’d rather use that as the motivation than competing with or “beating” our friends.

20. People who don’t give a shit about you. Again… bye, haters.

21. Trying to make everyone happy all of the time. Do what you can, and forgive yourself the rest. And perhaps take some time to focus on making yourself happy.

Happy 2015, y’all!

15 Damaging Myths About Life We Should All Stop Believing

1. There is a single definition of success.

And it involves an established career, large house, acceptable body shape, marriage and annual holidays.

Everyone has their own path to walk in this life, and what brings true meaning and deep fulfillment differs for all of us.

Let go of your need to fit to the status quo. Live, work, date, play, create, travel, eat, drink, move, laugh and sing in ways that feel right with your soul. That is true success.

2. Life is meant to be hard work.

Life is meant to be easy, beautiful and overflowing with moments of joy and bliss.

The more you listen to your soul and build a life that’s true to you, the more your actions will feel completely natural and effortless.

If life is a constant struggle, you’re running on empty and you dread Mondays, it’s time to take an honest look at your life — in a loving way.

3. Life happens to us.

Where you are now is a result of the choices you made in the past. Where you will be in the future is a result of the choices you are making right now.

You are an active participant in the creation of your life. So embrace your power as a creator, and start choosing thoughts, words and actions that make a positive impact and will come back to you in a million magnificent, beautiful, jaw-dropping ways.

4. There is such a thing as normal, and we should measure ourselves against it.

There is no such thing as a normal human, but there is such a thing as a “normal” you — where you’re completely yourself, you love yourself deeply and you think and act in ways that feel aligned with your soul.

Let your internal compass be your only point of reference.

5. There is an “us” and a “them.”

We draw a line around our social and family circles, keeping out everyone who doesn’t fit neatly within our definition of normal, interesting or worthwhile.

While everyone has vastly different aptitudes, passions and quirks, everyone also has the same light within them. The light within you is the same light within me, within the stranger on the bus, and within anyone you consider your enemy.

6. We have to compete for limited resources.

Life is meant to be abundant and limitless. We create scarcity by believing in it, instead of focusing our efforts on creating, giving and contributing our gift to help humankind reach its highest potential.

Relax and feel it deep within your heart that you will always be provided for.

7. Happiness comes from external things.

We pin our happiness on external things like our appearance, bank balance, job title, travel plans, possessions and the opinions of others — and then suffer as a result.

True, sustainable happiness comes from within — by cultivating a mindset based on gratitude, mindfulness and acceptance.

8. Holding grudges is a natural part of life.

When we feel that someone has “wronged” us, we cling to the memory and carry it around with us for weeks or sometimes years. What we fail to realize is that we are holding ourselves hostage, not just the perceived wrong-doer.

The Buddha once said, “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Make forgiveness your new motto and see how much freer and lighter your soul feels.

9. There is something wrong with us.

We are plagued by feelings of inadequateness and worthlessness, postponing self-acceptance and self-love until a day in the future when we’re thinner, wealthier, more confident and more popular.

You are perfect and complete exactly as you are. Even when you are striving to improve and grow, you are complete. As the Buddhist saying goes, “We are all perfect as we are, and we could all use a little work.”

10. It matters what other people think of us.

We give away so much of our energy, power and inner peace by worrying about what others think of us.

The truth is we can’t ever know for certain what other people are thinking about us. So when your ego starts to fill you with doubt and fear, remember it’s a fictional story.

11. We see things how they really are.

How we experience the world is heavily influenced by our beliefs and past experiences.

Our subconscious mind chooses pieces of information to serve to our conscious mind based on what we’ve programmed it to look for. Identify your dominant beliefs and replace the ones that aren’t serving you.

12. Meditation is something people do on a cushion at sunrise.

You can meditate and be mindful all throughout the day as you go about your life.

Pause and feel the weight of your body in your seat, the feeling of the fabric against your skin, and the slight sensation of the air on your face.

Take a few deep breaths and let your whole being relax. Scan your body up and down for sensations, simply observing, without making any judgments.

13. When we give something, we lose something.

Giving and receiving are one in truth. When you give to someone with no strings attached — whether it be a physical gift, a compliment or your time — you are nourished as well as the receiver.

Not only do you experience sensations of satisfaction and joy, but your karma will bring more blessings and gifts back into your life.

14. We have to logically figure everything out.

We’ve been taught to trust our minds but not our intuition or inner voice of guidance.

When you’re grappling with a problem or lacking clarity, learn to lean into your soul and trust the wisdom it provides to you — often in the form of a gut feeling, serendipitous sign or a spontaneous “aha!” moment.

15. We need to be more realistic.

Many people think that daily happiness and joy is an unrealistic goal, and we should be more realistic.

Happiness is THE ultimate goal of our lives, and it is both worthwhile and attainable.

Understand your purpose is to blossom into the highest, happiest version of you and let go of any guilt you feel for making your happiness a priority.

David Oyelowo hasn’t been shy about discussing how God spoke to him in 2007 and said the actor would eventually play Martin Luther King Jr. in what would become “Selma.”

“The reason I’m talking about that is because I’m as shocked as anyone else may be that this British guy is playing Martin Luther King,” Oyelowo, who was born in England, said during a recent interview. “Certainly back then, in 2007, I had done none of the movies people have now seen me do now.”

At the time, Oyelowo — who has since starred in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “Jack Reacher,” “The Help” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” — was a relative unknown. But it was another obstacle separating him from King that proved more difficult to overcome: Stephen Frears. Back then, the director was attached to “Selma” and didn’t think Oyelowo was right for the part. In the ensuing seven years, however, Frears left and multiple directors nearly stepped into his place (including Spike Lee and Paul Haggis). In 2010, Lee Daniels came onboard and, after working with Oyelowo on”Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” cast the actor as King. The tumultuous development process didn’t end there: Daniels dropped out because of scheduling conflicts. That’s when Oyelowo suggested another former collaborator: Ava DuVernay, with whom Oyelowo had made the 2012 indie film “Middle of Nowhere.”

“There was so much faith that had to be employed that this thing was going to happen,” Oyelowo said. “Virtually every day between that moment [when God spoke] to me and now, I did everything I could to make this thing happen.”

Now that it has, Oyelowo has received the best reviews of his career for playing King. The performance earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama, and it has Oyelowo in the middle of a crowded group of contenders vying for an Oscar nomination. “Selma,” meanwhile, stands as one of the year’s best films, a timely and insightful drama that says as much about Martin Luther King’s struggle to get equal voting rights in 1965 as it does about the Millions March in 2014.

Oyelowo spoke to HuffPost Entertainment about “Selma,” working with DuVernay and what it was like to meet King’s children.

You’ve talked about hearing a higher calling to play this role all the way back in 2007. Does that kind of connection with God extend through the production as well?
What I couldn’t have anticipated is how much I needed, to be perfectly frank, God’s help in the playing of it. Not least because this was a man of God. This was someone, if you’ve seen him giving those speeches, there is something flowing through him other than himself. He is flowing in his anointing. I needed that. I like to think of myself as a good actor, but Martin Luther King, I ain’t! If you’re going to go and shoot in Atlanta, in a historical church, with 500 people who are from Atlanta, you need a little help from above. So I definitely felt I had that.

Watch Oyelowo in an exclusive clip from “Selma”



During that seven year period from when you first read the script and now, was playing Dr. King something you thought about every day, or is that impossible?
The first thing I can say to you is that it’s very possible to think about playing Martin Luther King every single day for seven years. I’m living evidence of that. There is never going to be a time in your life as an actor where you’re going to go, “Oh yeah, I’m ready to play Dr. King now.” But between doing the work in quiet and then, the films that presented themselves to me, I prepared. Playing a Union solider in “Lincoln,” playing a preacher in “The Help,” playing a black fighter pilot in “Red Tails,” playing the son of a butler in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” who is in the Freedom Riders and becomes a Black Panther: these were all films in which I had to go study the history. Inevitably they were part of what informed playing Dr. King. Now, were they opportunities that were divinely presented to me or was I just continually drawn to that material because of what was going on in my head? That I can’t really say. But I do know that so many different aspects of my life went into what you see in the film. Plus, I was now the age Dr. King was when these things happened in his life. When I first read the script, I had two kids; when we shot it, I had four kids, like he did. There were so many things I matured into by the time I played the role.

Dr. King is, relatively speaking, a young man during the events of “Selma,” but he looks 10-15 years older than his actual age. How did you manage the physical transformation this role required?
Again, we’re back to the spiritual side of things. People like to talk about the weight gain and the voice, but that’s what we do as actors; that’s the first rung of what you need to do if you’re going to play someone like this. But it was the emotional and spiritual weight of what this man did and had to go through that was tough. At that stage in his life, to have spent 10 years under threat — and not only his life, but his kids’ lives, his wife’s life. Having all these people depend on him. Being a voice for the voiceless. Being someone who has seen people die because of this cause. And not just because racist people have killed them, but because he went to places where he tried to have racists act out in front of the cameras, and then people get hurt. In Selma, people died. That weighs on you. If you’re mentally placing yourself in that space, it does something to you physically. When I watch him, you can see there is a burden. You can see that he looks and feels older than he was. He was 36 at this stage. That is crazy. That had to be one of the things I tried to bring to it.

You recommended Ava to direct this film. Having worked with her on “Middle of Nowhere,” what surprised you about her transition to this kind of bigger material?
When we worked together on “Middle Of Nowhere” I saw her talent is undeniable. One of the privileges I’ve had in doing some of those films I mentioned is working with Steven Spielberg and other incredible directors. I was on the set with Ava, and she is just as good. I think the unique thing about her — and what she brought to “Selma” that was so incredible — was the ease with which she went into a film that was 100 times the budget of the last thing she had done. There were so many more people, so many more elements, it was much bigger in size, but she never panicked. She never shouted. She never threw a chair. She never compromised her vision. That went through the post-production side of things as well. To be a visionary, you have to be single minded. She has that without being, to be perfectly honest, an unpleasant person. That’s very rare! Often being single-minded is combined with being a bit of a nightmare to be around. She’s just not that.

It’s impossible to discuss “Selma” without mentioning how timely it is in its scenes of protest and police brutality. How do you think “Selma” fits in with the events that have occurred over the last month?
Well, we’re back to the divide, aren’t we? If you were ever going to have a moment in time when this film should come out in the 50 years since these events happened, it would be now. Not only would it be now, it would be now now. It would be this month. We would be having this conversation today. You can’t tell me between everything we’ve discussed already to when the film is being released to the fact that it’s a black woman who has made this — just in terms of where we are in history and how beautiful a thing that is — that it’s not divine timing. Whether you believe in that stuff or not, I truly believe the reason why this film is so pertinent for right now is that it shows this isn’t the first time. It shows that we are not a new generation for this and also how it was successfully dealt with. Peaceful protest. Strategy. Using the power of the image to bring the world together. That’s what happened in a sense.

Ferguson, I feel, was deemed a “black problem.” Eric Garner became an American problem. That’s the power of the image. Seeing him murdered onscreen has been the thing that has brought America and the world together to protest. Seeing Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge is what brought the nation together, black and white, in 1965. The difference is that was about voting rights, and this is about police reform. There had to be federal intervention with voting rights; the federal government is stalling on intervening on this, to bring in independent bodies to police the police. It’s just clear that’s what is needed. No matter what they say about how difficult that is because it’s states’ rights. It was states’ rights with voting. It’s crazy how similar it is.

Did you get to meet anyone close to Dr. King in preparation for the role?
I met every one of his children and spoke with them. I actually became quite friendly with Dexter Scott King, his second son. I met Martin Luther King III. I actually didn’t meet Bernice King until the Friday before we were going to start shooting. I bumped into her at the King Center, if you would believe it — again, the divine! I was with a group of the actors who were going to be in the film, and she went up to everyone, deliberately leaving me to last. “So, who you playing?” she said. I was like, “Oh. My. Lord.” Dr. King’s voice is pretty deep, but I was like, in a high-pitched voice, “I’m going to be playing your daddy.” It was as bad as it could be. But by the time we finished our conversation, she ended up praying with me and giving me her blessing to play her dad. She and her elder brother saw the film recently and were very complimentary about it. She said mine is the best interpretation of her dad she’s seen. I will take it.

After seven years of having this role in your life, did you feel any letdown or hangover after you moved on to the next job?
There was no letdown. I was very happy to let this guy go. I wouldn’t say it was a burden, because I felt so privileged to do it, but there were moments where it was a real crossover. I stayed in character for the three months we were doing this. I, for one second, wouldn’t say I was him for that time, but I felt a little bit of what it may have been like. Just because you have to take it on. He lived through 13 years of that. I was very happy to walk away. I tell you that much.

Hey, Ladies, This Conservative Blogger Wants You To Stop ‘Destroying Your Husband’

A piece about how to stop destroying your husband and your marriage has elicited plenty of attention this week, with some slamming the advice as completely antiquated. Although author Katelyn Carmen told The Huffington Post that she can acknowledge a difference in opinion when it comes to what makes a marriage work, she’s sticking to hers.

Carmen’s article — which appeared on FamilyShare.com, a conservative website dedicated to helping men and women strengthen their marriages and families — lists “five destructive things” she says will ultimately ruin a woman’s relationship with her husband and offers tips for keeping the man happy. According to her advice, a woman should live within her spouse’s means, never complain, always put her husband first and use sex as a “sacred tool” and never withhold it.

On the subject of never complaining, she writes:

Wives, show sincere appreciation and respect to your husband by carefully following a budget and making the most of what you have. Be wise about your finances.

Constantly complaining about not having enough to fulfill your lavish desires or racking up astronomical amounts of debt on your credit card is a poor way of saying “thank you” to a faithful spouse who works hard every day to provide for the family.

And when it comes to sex, Carmen doesn’t really care if you’re in the mood.

It is a great blessing to be wanted and needed by a loving, romantic husband who wants to share something so beautiful and important with you — and you only. Even though you might not always be in the mood, it’s worth it to give in (when you can) and spend that time bonding.

The article went viral, and while some praised her tips on Facebook, others weren’t exactly thrilled with what she had to say.

“It turns out that while I’ve spent all these years trying to make us happy, I should have been worried about making him happy. Why? I don’t know. Because penis, I guess,” Meredith Bland wrote on Mommyish.

And Hemavathy DM Suppiah mockingly rephrased Carmen’s words on MyLaunchpad. On Carmen’s point about sex, she writes:

Men, susceptible creatures that they are, need lots and lots of physical affection. They cannot live without it and if you neglect your wifely duties, then he’s just going to go elsewhere, and you’ll be a bad, bad wife. Seriously, they’ll give you a trophy.

Never mind if you don’t feel well, or you’re tired, or just not in the mood, your husband’s needs surmount yours (refer to point no. 3) and it is your duty to give him all the pleasure he wants and needs.

When asked about the backlash, Carmen told The Huffington Post: “Some of the strongest emotions we experience as humans come from our relationships with the people we love. Strengthening our marriages and families should be two topics that people think about every day, but people don’t always agree on how that should be done.”

“The advice I gave in this article was influenced by a variety of sources,” she went on to say, “including my college studies and research — I minored in marriage and family studies — family therapists who contribute content to the site, my own marriage and advice from couples I know who’ve have had long, successful marriages.”

Though the beginning of Carmen’s FamilyShare.com article noted that her tips can also apply to men, she told HuffPost that an article will be coming out next week with advice specifically for men.

“Marriage is a partnership. My advice is just as important and relevant to men –- and we publish advice for both men and women on the site,” she said. “As spouses, we should be willing to help one another as equal partners as we honor and serve one another. That, in turn, will bring the greatest likelihood of a successful marriage.”

Jimmy Fallon Playing The Vanilla Ice Board Game Makes You Stop, Collaborate And Listen

Ice is back with an embarrassing invention.

In Jimmy Fallon’s first installment of his “Do Not Game List,” the “Tonight Show” host introduced us to a bunch of different awful games, but Vanilla Ice Electronic Rap might be the most terribly awesome of them all.

In the game, players are given an electronic beat box and rap different rhyming words that don’t make a lot of sense.

Fallon doesn’t really explain how to win the game, but this might just be one of those cases where there aren’t any winners.

Two Deer Stop Rush Hour Traffic On The Golden Gate Bridge

It was rush hour on Friday in San Francisco, and traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge came to a grinding halt — all thanks to two rather unexpected guests.

According to NBC News, two deer wandered onto the Golden Gate Bridge at around 5.30 p.m. and promptly stopped up the flow of traffic on three northbound lanes. The deer appear to have entered from the southern end of the bridge, the news outlet said, and were running toward Marin County.

The duo reportedly got off the bridge safely and commuters were soon able to continue their journeys.

“You just don’t see this everyday,” wrote one Instagrammer who snapped a photo of the two deer sauntering across the bridge. “#deergate2014”

In ‘The Devilers’ Comic Book, Exorcists Converge To Stop Hell From Breaking Loose

(RNS) There’s never a better time for a bunch of holy avengers than when all hell actually breaks loose.

The Dynamite Entertainment series The Devilers debuts Wednesday (July 16) as an action-packed supernatural comic book full of demonic beasties, big-picture philosophies and heroes that have to put religious differences aside in order to save Vatican City – and the world – from being turned into brimstone.

“When suddenly it’s ‘Oh that is a giant hellmouth that opened up in front of me,’ that changes your beliefs,” said series writer Joshua Hale Fialkov (The Bunker, The Life After), who’s doing the The Devilers alongside artist Matt Triano.

The main conceit behind The Devilers is the Catholic Church, which has had an armistice with Satan’s forces for hundreds of years to keep the demonic element downstairs, but not surprisingly the deal doesn’t hold. Horrific creatures arise when they stop caring about what mankind and the heavenly host can do to them, thereby beginning a new war on Earth.

Father Malcolm O’Rourke, whose faith has waned since having an otherworldly encounter as a child, is called into action by the church’s head exorcist, Cardinal Michael David Reed, as well as other potential saviors from all over the world.

Every issue of Devilers focuses on a different character in the group, which includes Mossad agent and rabbi Brenda Davide, a pro at revealing true evil; the tricky and persuasive Samir Patel; Raab Al-Fayed, a noted demonologist who controls a powerful entity; Chun-Bai, a woman able to bend nature to her will; and the teleporting man-bear demon Rex.

“As we’re discovering the world, each of them is discovering the world, too, and you get a sense of who they are that way,” said Fialkov, adding that the team readers meet in the first issue may not be there going forward.

The cardinal is a pretty hardcore sort but he in a sense reflects the stakes involved with the hellish situation.

“You can have dogma as much as you like, but when the rubber hits the road, you have to be practical,” Fialkov said.

Even though he had a childhood experience that for most people would be proof positive that there are higher powers at work, Malcolm, the priest and exorcist, is still more practical than spiritual.

“He’s had time soften the one thing that really gave him faith, but now suddenly it’s jammed in front of his face,” Fialkov said. “There’s no arguing with the things he sees.”

While the Devilers has a philosophical side, it’s still as big and crazy as a 1970s X-Men comic, according to Fialkov.

Fialkov’s I, Vampire series for DC Comics merged vampires and a monster world into a landscape of superheroes, and he’s trying to do something similar with The Devilers, an inherently dark book that’s more funny than bleak.

Triano illustrates a frog flipping off the cardinal in the first issue, and the holy man tells an atheist who gets a little too close to Rex, “Don’t kick the demon, son.” “That’s just me being me,” Fialkov said. “Anytime anything feels pretentious, I have to take the wind out of the sails.”

The next couple of issues feature the protagonists journeying through hell, “literally heading toward Satan’s throne room,” Fialkov said. “But the question is, who’s actually sitting on that throne? It might be a surprise.”

Dear Market Researcher, I’m Gay — Stop Sending Playboy Subscription Offers!

This offer arrived in the mail the other day from Playboy‘s Market Research Department:

2014-06-20-playboy.JPG

Dear Domenick Scudera,

To attract readers with preferred demographics, you have been selected to receive this courtesy. As a special incentive, the price is reduced down as low as we are allowed, giving you a full year of Playboy for a token $ 12.

A sampling of my friends’ responses:

  • “I hear the articles are good.”
  • “Wasn’t this on your wedding registry?”
  • “I think the label has a misprint — it should read ‘…to a token,12.'”
  • “Oh, c’mon. Everyone knows gay men love women.”
  • “Did u forget to tell us something?”

Gay acceptance has reached new heights if 49-year-old, recently married gay men are one of Playboy‘s “preferred demographics.” I feel blessed that Playboy has extended me this courtesy, one that I never would have received back in the days when gays were being denied equality.

The offer says that I will get the “beyond-beautiful women, obviously.” In addition, they believe that I will “appreciate the award-winning journalism and no-holds-barred interviews” in every “smoking hot issue.” The fine print includes this guarantee: “Playboy always guarantees that if you are ever dissatisfied for any reason whatsoever you get a full refund on all unmailed issues.”

Dear Playboy,

I am somewhat dissatisfied with my subscription. Don’t get me wrong. There is a lot to admire in your magazine: The articles and interviews are terrific, and the women are, obviously, beyond beautiful. However, I would enjoy more male nudity in my magazines. Please refund me the amount of my unmailed issues, until you are prepared to give me some smoking-hot maleness.

Thanks,
Domenick

This is not the first time I have received an offer for heterosexual porn. When I was 7 years old, I innocently opened up a plain, white envelope addressed to me. There was a series of pictures of naked women with their legs spread wide, and before I knew what was happening, my mother leaped across the room, wrestled the envelope out of my hands and appeared to have some trouble breathing. The next thing I knew, she was on the phone, complaining to someone, trying to make sure I never received offers like this again. Who did she call? The Post Office? The Better Business Bureau? President Nixon? I have no idea, but whoever it was, she was ineffective. I received more offers for years. She carefully monitored my mail until I was well into my college years.

Were 7-year-old gay boys one of the “preferred demographics” for Screw?

Most likely, these marketing departments have misidentified me. This is a problem I encounter often. For instance, when I watch television, the advertisers assume that I am a heavyset, single female on her period. I gather this from the fact that most of the commercials are for weight-loss supplements, dating sites and tampons.

About an hour after I received the Playboy offer, a pleasant young woman knocked on our front door with an offer for educational books for our children. When I explained that we have dogs, not kids, she showed me the books anyway. Did I know that flamingos are pink because they eat shrimp, and that they would be white if they did not? No, I did not. This is educational, but my nonexistent children will not learn this, because I did not order any of the books.

Am I missing out? There might be other interesting factoids in those books, and Playboy‘s “no-holds-barred interviews” might offer some insights. But for now, I think I will hold on to my gay dollars for another day.

How To Stop Waiting and Start Living

In this video, Eckhart Tolle explains that “Presence,” is a state of consciousness. Many of us spend our lives waiting… for the next moment, because we believe the next moment will be better than the present moment. When we are waiting for the next moment, we miss the present moment. Since life only happens Now, we end up waiting for an illusive something that never arrives.

When someone answers their cell phone in the middle of dining with you, or runs you off the sidewalk with their doublewide stroller, or you enter a post-apocalyptic public restroom, the long-revered wisdom of Emily Post can seem downright prehistoric. Troubled by the absence of good manners in his day-to-day life-by the people who clip their toenails on the subway or give three-letter replies to one’s laboriously crafted missives-Alford embarks on a journey to find out how things might look if people were on their best behavior a tad more often. He travels to Japan (the “Fort Knox Reserve” of good manners) to observe its culture of collective politesse. He interviews etiquette experts both likely (Judith Martin, Tim Gunn) and unlikely (a former prisoner, an army sergeant). He plays a game called Touch the Waiter. And he volunteers himself as a tour guide to foreigners visiting New York City in order to do ground-level reconnaissance on cultural manners divides. Along the way (in typical Alford style) he also finds time to teach Miss Manners how to steal a cab; designates the World’s Most Annoying Bride; and tosses his own hat into the ring, volunteering as an online etiquette coach. Ultimately, by tackling the etiquette questions specific to our age-such as Why shouldn’t you ask a cab driver where’s he’s from? , Why is posting baby pictures on Facebook a fraught activity? and What’s the problem with “No problem”? -Alford finds a wry and warm way into a subject that has sometimes been seen as pedantic or elitist. And in this way, he looks past the standard “dos” and “don’ts” of good form to present an illuminating, seriously entertaining book about grace and civility, and how we can simply treat each other better.

These Are 16 Things CVS Should Also Stop Selling

This past week drugstore chain CVS announced that it will no longer sell tobacco products at its stores. The move will cost them upwards of $ 2 billion in revenue and is part of their effort to be more of a healthcare company. Many are applauding the move. I agree. But why stop there? Ever been to a CVS? There are plenty of other products that they sell that should also be taken off the shelves. I can think of 16 right of the top of my head. Examples?

Shampoo. Nope, haven’t used the stuff in years. And you wouldn’t believe what I save on barber visits. Someday I’ll sit you down and explain to you some of the benefits of being bald. I see a lot of bald guys around like me. Not sure what all that shampoo fuss is about.

Weight loss supplements. My thinking: For most people eating less and exercising a little will result in losing weight. CVS might want to coach its customers on this healthy approach rather than selling them amphetamines in a can. Might as well be selling chocolate, cakes and chips in the next aisle over. Oh… you do?

Extra large condoms. I want to know who’s really buying these. Is this some kind of a cruel joke? Are the executives at CVS poking fun at guys like me and offering some kind of subliminal message to their women customers, like “You know, you could be doing better. Just hang around this aisle for a while.” Shouldn’t these things be sold in some kind of specialty store, like a magic shop or a place where NBA players frequent?

Vitamins. Unless you haven’t seen the sun in a few months or live on a diet of fast food you’re likely not going to need vitamins. And yet there are aisles filled with them. Study after study show that most vitamins are essentially worthless. CVS should stop selling these. Except for the Flintstones Chewables because they’re delicious.

Snoring suppressants. So let me get this straight: You put a strip of tape that looks suspiciously like a simple band-aid on the bridge of your nose and that’s supposed to stop you from snoring? And they’re only… how much? You can ask my wife — these don’t work. Smacking your bedmate in the head is much more effective. Cutting it down to 32 beers a night before you go to bed may also help.

Blank DVDs (and yes) Digital Cassettes. I’m assuming CVS is targeting AOL internet subscribers to move these items. Or the people who are driving around in circles and wondering where that dang Blockbuster store went to. I guess there are those that have never heard of Spotify, Netflix, Dropbox or Google Drive and haven’t given themselves up to the hell of recurring monthly fees. Hmmm… smart people, actually.

A1 Steak Sauce. CVS actually sells A1 Steak Sauce. Who is buying this? Are you running into the 24 hour CVS down the street to pick up some soap, toothpaste and a bottle of A1 Steak Sauce?

Body wash. Hello to the biggest scam of the 21st century. My kids go through a bottle a week. This is madness. “Body Wash” is just another term for “super-expensive soap.” Get a bar of Irish Spring for $ .39 and it’ll last for a month. Just pluck off the hairs each time and you’re good to go. Simple.

Disposable cameras (and film too). Other than fashion week are people still using actual cameras? I’ve got ten photos of my family (and a thousand photos of my dog) on my iPhone. Who’s still buying cameras?

Axe Deodorant. My sons seriously think that if they use Axe deodorant they will have success with the ladies. Ah, the power of advertising. The reality is that they carry my genes. A case of Axe isn’t going to change that predicament anytime soon. CVS is only contributing to this heinous deceit.

Faihaven Health Countboost for Men. These are dietary supplements that are supposed to increase the sperm count in men. My suggestion is to take a flight to Orlando on the first day of school vacation. By the time you arrive you’ll be tossing the Countboost for Men out the window and looking up vasectomy specialists in the area. CVS, let’s just save these guys the trouble, shall we?

Kiss Nail Artist Airbrush Style Nail Stickers. Let’s see… $ .02 to make. $ 2.99 to sell. Nice! As a father of a teenage daughter I am pleading with CVS to stop selling these. I pay more for stickers than I did to wallpaper our guest bathroom.

Fluttery Butterfly Pillow Pets. Really? This is what society has come to? We can’t just have regular pillows anymore? They have to be in the shape of butterflies and other pets? CVS, is this really something you should be encouraging? Must we give Vladimir Putin any more reasons to make fun of us?

Canon Ink Cartridges. These things are worse than cigarettes. You pay $ 99 for a printer and every two weeks you’re buying a $ 30 cartridge to feed its insatiable appetite for ink. This is like heroin and I demand that CVS put a stop to this now.

Jujubees Candy. Anti-semitic. Yeah, that’s right. Any way you say it. And the reference to “bees” like there’s some kind of honey — Rosh Hashana connection? Oh we know you’re game, CVS. As a member of the Hebrew persuasion I’m shocked that these are being sold and I know I’ve got my dentist’s backing on this. His name is Abramowitz, by the way.

Cascade Dishwasher Detergent. Silly people! Don’t you know that Cascade Complete is way, way better than the regular Cascade. I mean, what a difference! Wow. What a shine. Actually… I’m being total serious here. You won’t believe it.

10 Things You Need to Stop Wearing Immediately

Maggie Cassidy is a blogger for “Unwritten” and is a sophomore pursuing an English degree at the University of Maryland, College Park.

______

Out with the trashy and in with the classy. Since autumn is actually here, and winter will soon be approaching, it’s time to rid your wardrobe of things that have been worn too many times by too many girls. This list contains the 10 items that you should avoid wearing for the days when you strive to look your best.

1. Jeggings

Come on girls. I know you’re better than jeggings. At first they were innovative. You got to wear your pjs and jeans all at the same time. But you can spot a false pair of denims with a drawn-on zipper line and pockets from a mile away. Be better than jeggings, and put on some pants.

2. UGGs

I will defend this statement until the day I die: You ARE NOT fashionable if you wear these monstrosities. They were a bad idea in 2006, and they sure as hell aren’t a good idea now, especially when paired with shorts.

3. Longchamp Bag

For those of you who think nylon is a super chic material, I’m sorry to say it’s not. I get that these durable carry-alls fit everything you need for a full day of class, but too many girls walk around with a Longchamp in one hand and a skinny latte in the other.

4. Anything with a High-Low Hem

It was cool at first, but the Billy Ray Cyrus of fashion just has to stop. I can’t even go dress shopping without at least five of these “mullet dresses” on the rack. Either opt for a cocktail length, or a maxi dress — nothing in between.

5. Stacks of Friendship Bracelets

Are you a middle-schooler at sleep-away summer camp? Nope? Yeah, that’s what I thought. These rainbow yarn bracelets are juvenile, and they need to stop ruining your outfits. How about trying a watch or a cuff for grownup wrist wear?

6. Sperry Shoes

I’m guilty of owning these, but it’s time that I throw away my battered pair as well. First off, they’re guy shoes. So if you want to dress like your man, then go for it. But otherwise, save these dock siders for the Vineyard Vine wearing gentlemen.

7. Bandage Dresses

I want to wear the exact same thing as all the girls at the party — said no fashionable girl ever. Bandage dresses have become the uniform of party wear. There’s nothing unique to them; they simply look like a dip dyed ace bandage from a first aid kit that you decided to wrap around yourself. Yeah, it accentuates our curves, but a lot of them can accentuate the wrong curves.

8. Sweat Pants with Words on the Butt

Everyone had those neon-colored sweatpants in high school with the words “PINK” or “JUICY” slapped on the backside. The keywords in that sentence were: high school. Ladies, we’re basically one level away from the professional world, it’s time to let go and throw out the wardrobe from the days when our moms still drove us around.

9. North Face Fleeces

There’s a time and place for everything, but these fleeces should not be in your daily repertoire. Any outfit, no matter how chic it is, immediately becomes frumpy when you choose one of these as your outerwear. There are so many better options out there, like: leather jackets, peacoats, jean jackets or basically anything else. Save the North Face’s for when you’re running outside.

10. Sneaker Wedges

Please, please, please make these stop. Athletic wear and wedges just don’t mix. When are you ever running laps in a bar? Never. I know you think you look like bad gal RiRi when you wear these, but sadly, you don’t.

I apologize if this list offended anyone, but it’s for everyone’s own good. I’m just trying to look out for my fellow fashionistas. Comment below if you disagree with my list, or if you have any other items that people should just stop wearing!

Ask the Art Professor: How Do You Know When to Stop Working?

“When working on a piece of art, how do you know when to stop? I often find that the more I look at something I’ve drawn or painted, the more small things I’ll find that I’m not quite happy with, and I’ll keep altering and tweaking, which is fine up to a point, but I can end up ruining it. When do you draw the line and say enough is enough, this piece is finished? Is there always going to be something that you’re not 100 percent happy with, or should you keep working on something until you are 100 percent happy?”

Knowing just when to declare a work of art finished is an eternal struggle for many artists. The issue is that if you don’t work on a piece enough, the work can come across as incomplete. On the other hand, overworking a piece can cause the work to appear tired and tedious. The most compelling works of art throughout history are able to establish a strong balance of gesture and spontaneity while simultaneously appearing to be substantial and fully resolved.

So how does one learn how to achieve this balance? One of the classic problems that I see in the beginning of my freshman drawing classes is students not pushing their pieces far enough, and therefore never fulfilling their piece’s potential. To learn how to truly bring a piece to a full finish, I encourage my students in my classes to experiment with intentionally overworking their drawings to the point that the drawing is ruined. This way, when they have the experience of pushing their drawings too far, they develop an awareness of the entire process, and will know in the future when to pull back. You’ll never know how far to go until you’ve gone too far.

2013-12-03-IMG_1949.JPG

I look for specific signals in my work pattern that tell me that I am either finished or getting very close. In the beginning of a piece, I work very fast because there is just so much to be addressed. Gradually, my pace slows down as I start to work specific areas and hone in on smaller details. When I start to notice that I am needlessly picking at a piece and making the most minor adjustments that really have no impact on the overall work itself, I know that it’s time to stop. Other times, I’m simply sick of looking at the work for so many hours that I can’t stand to work on it anymore.

After staring at your work for many hours on end, it can be nearly impossible to see the work objectively with fresh eyes. There are a few simple strategies you can employ to help this. One trick I use is to look at my work in a mirror. Seeing the reverse image can frequently allow me to see mistakes in the piece that I wasn’t able to previously see. Usually when I’m deep in the trenches of working, my opinion of the work is very biased. Instead of making decisions on the spot, I reserve judgment on the work by putting it away for two weeks where I can’t see it. After that time period passes, I take the work out again. I’m often times surprised that my initial opinion of the work was quite off and that getting some distance from the work allows me to make better informed decisions.

In my experience, being 100-percent happy with a work is so incredibly rare that it’s not a goal that I even strive for. When I reflect upon my past works, there is always something that I’m not totally satisfied with. To combat this feeling, it’s a good idea to not be too precious about your work. Maintain a high level of productivity so that you aren’t investing everything you have into a single work. It’s usually a better use of your time to create a work, learn from it, and then know when to move on. Students ask me all the time whether they can rework their homework assignments. The majority of the time, I advise them to simply absorb what they experienced with that piece and then to move onto the next work. Getting too stuck on an individual work can cause one to obsess over details and concerns that in the larger picture don’t matter.
