I've said it before and I'll say it again: Pinterest will kill your soul. Pinterest is select-league baseball for 9-year olds. You think it's just a silly game, but you're wrong. This is life: It's real and it hurts. Don't you dare come to this game and pick dandelions in the outfield (unless your h ... More >>

Pinterest probably has lots of suggestions. See, you get "boards" that are based on topics and you "pin" things you like to those boards. Then ... More >>
To be quite honest, I've never been a huge fan of Bitchin' Kitchen. It's just that it's an assault on the senses. Loud, busy, with lots of costumes, oiled up half naked dudes and whatnot. It's too much. If you haven't heard of Bitchin' Kitchen, it's a show on The Cooking Channel (AKA The Other Food ... More >>
Last week we received an email about food porn addiction, which was really just an effort to promote the book Eating Mindfully by Dr. Susan Albers, Psy. D. Usually we discard these things, but we thought it'd be sooooo freaking hilarious to ask sly porn questions! Then we'd all laugh at our wit an ... More >>
Last year, October was Vegetarian Awareness Month. This year, it is once again. Because clearly, the fight to recognize that Vegetarians are among us is still not over. We must be aware. We must make others aware. We will prevail! Celebrating Vegetarian Awareness Month is easy! Just be aware that V ... More >>
Maybe you've seen the commercial. It's up there. Michael Symon, the smiliest chef ever, is bouncing his bald head all over the television for Frito-Lay's newest ad campaign/contest. Eva Longoria is even taking time out of her... um... schedule to tout Frito-Lay's flavor outsourcing endeavor! Frito-L ... More >>
This year, like most years, the multi-million-dollar-slinging advertising competition known as the Super Bowl was largely dominated by those in the motor vehicle category.
