Kanye West is officially back on the market. He and long-time girlfriend Alexis Phifer have split up. Evidently, for no reason. We'll see where this goes.
- FROM OUR EXPERTS
A girlfriend (Teri) and I were talking about dating. Specifically, I was asking about the latest guy she dated and doesn’t want to date anymore. “Too many deal breakers,” she dismissed. “Okay,” I pushed, “list ‘em.” And so she did. Half way through, I got a pen.
You know what I did this week? Nothing. It was so awesome. I went to work, I went to the gym, I made dinner, I ate dinner, I went to bed. This weekend Frank and I finally got internet and cable so I gorged on dumb TV and websites. We went on walks through our new neighborhood. It’s so boring! I love boring! I haven’t been bored in like a month and a half. I’m sure I’ll get tired of it. And there’s still lots of crap we have to do around the apartment—the last couple of boxes, buying some furniture, cleaning. We’ll get to it. But for now: sweet, sweet boredom. It’s funny because I kind of don’t even remember what I used to do all the time, when I wasn’t packing or unpacking or moving or going on vacation or painting or going to a wedding or waiting for the cable guy. Watch TV and browse the internet, I guess. How I’ve missed it.
Virgin Galactic (and founder Richard Branson) are making first again. The world's first commercial spaceliner is going to host a space wedding. A lucky couple is going to pay a nice chunk of change to get hitched 70 miles above the Earth. Good scene. Lance Bass is not amused.
Jessica Simpson's romance with Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo is still going along smashingly. The 2 celebrated his birthday over the weekend with some tomfoolery and shenanigans at a Dallas-area club. Singing and face-licking were involved, so it was a pretty good birthday.
Writing about sex has always been an honorable tradition. Just like good sex, good sex writing is in the details, the images, the scenario, the melding of reality and fantasy. We read erotica for inspiration, sometimes to lose ourselves, though we often find parts of ourselves within the story. Good sex writing paints a picture; it shows as well as tells, and it connects your mind to your body. Sounds good right, the life of an erotica writer? Can't you see me in my sexy lingerie, sitting at my laptop, popping bonbons from a heart shaped dish into my mouth, porno playing as I sample sex toys for research? Unfortunately the reality is very, very different.
Pornfortheblind, a non-profit, is trying to bring adult entertainment to the sightless. But how? By narrating racy scripts, slowly and clearly. Imagine catching a nuclear physicist presenting to the House Energy Committee on C-Span. Now, instead of discussing the capacity of an atom, he's narrating a film—a porn film, to be exact. As of today, the site offers 29 recordings from videos such as "Cum Overload" and "Milf Soup."
Daniel Radcliffe, who is bound to be Sir Daniel Radcliffe any day now, is using the media to track down a girl whose number he failed to get. Evidently, the boy wizard was struck by the beauty (et al) of an Australian gal that he met over the weekend and has pleaded his case to have some help in tracking her mysterious ass down.
Prince William, 2nd in line to the British Throne, landed an Air Force chopper in his girlfriend's backyard. This is a pretty awesome. And it looks like he used the same helicopter to fly his brother to a bachelor party. It's good to (almost) be king.
A friend and I play "Subway Sex," when we ride together, where - in transit - we count how many people on that subway car we would potentially sleep with. And then there's some type of asinine point system. Sure, it's silly and irrational, but what else are you really going to do in the subway? Cell phones don't work. As silly as my game might sound, people really let their imaginations run more wild than mine. Pretend sex is one thing - but a pretend boyfriend/girlfriend? Looks like the Pleo isn't satisfying people enough. Is the real thing just too much trouble?
