For many of you, getting enough sleep is a big problem and/or many of you are not “morning people.” As a result, you may find yourself hitting the snooze button time and time again to get as many extra minutes of sleep as you can. But is this really helping?
Another great video from ASAP Science addresses this very subject. I for one am a morning person so very rarely do I find myself using the snooze button. I find that I’m the most productive in the morning, as opposed to staying up late to get something done. This video talks about the science of sleep and what effects the snooze button has on that… Hint: Using the snooze button is not a good thing. As the saying goes, “You Snooze, You Lose.”
Find out why snoozing is not recommended by checking out the latest video from the boys at ASAP Science.
Vancouver-based yoga wear giant, Lululemon just can’t seem to catch a break over the past few weeks. Some serious allegations were made by the late Wilfried Knight in his blog posts before he took his own life (may he rest in peace), and now they’ve had to issue a massive yoga pants recall because one of their latest designs turned out to be see-thru. As a result of the recall, the company’s share prices have been falling.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, they made fun of the fact that women everywhere are facing a crisis that they don’t have expensive spandex-like pants to wear anymore and made a fake ad where people can donate to help get women new yoga pants. Without yoga pants, woman are forced to wear cardboard pants, bubble wrap pants, and yogurt pants because they clearly have no other options. “With your donation of $120 a day, you can put one woman in one pair of yoga pants,” they explain in the ad. Watch the funny clip below.
Stuck In Love premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and now that trailer has just been released.
In the story, writer Bill Borgens (Greg Kinnear) has been struggling to keep it together since his wife Erica (Jennifer Connelly) left him for a younger man three years earlier. When their 19-year-old daughter Sam (Lily Collins) comes home for Thanksgiving and shares the news that her book is getting published, he is thrilled and annoyed at the same time, since he didn’t help her with it at all. He suggests she tells the news to her mom, but she doesn’t want to have anything to do with the woman that betrayed her father. She herself has become a permiscuos girl and doesn’t let guys get close to her. One guy named Lou (Logan Lerman – who I loved in The Perks of Being A Wallflower) tries to initiate a relationship with her. Rusty, Sam’s brother, has his own issues as he crushes hard for a girl named Kate (Liana Liberato).
This drama / love story about second chances hits theaters this summer. Check out the trailer below!
One of my two favorite songs on the Justin Timberlake‘s new album is without a doubt, “Mirrors.” JT just released the music video for the song and it’s pretty incredible. The video is dedicated to his grandparents, Sadie and the late William Bomar and tells the love story of a couple that goes through hard times only to realize that they are each others mirror…”staring right at the other half of me,” as Justin says in the lyrics.
The video is 8 minutes and 20 seconds but I was captivated the whole time. We cut between a few different times in the couples relationship. Early on in the honeymoon phase, later on in a difficult time just after what looks like was an intense fight or a breakup, and finally when the two are an elderly couple and looking back on their life together. It’s pretty intense and I definitely teared up while watching it. I can’t help but wonder if the song was written about how he and Jessica Biel had split up in the past and eventually found their way back to each other. This might even be one of my favorite JT videos. Definitely check it out below and share your thoughts on it in the comments. I should note that Justin Timberlake doesn’t come into the video until close to the end.
Before you get to the video, you should also know that JT has confirmed that there is indeed a second part of The 20/20 Experience album. At a release party in LA last night, Justin set things straight in an interview with Ryan Seacrest. “I need to clear up a rumor,” he told the crowd. “This whole thing about this being the first half of the album is true.” The word on the street was that a second 20/20 album would be released some time later this year. The rumor was first circulated by Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson on the message boards for the Roots’ Okayplayer label. “Spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov,” Thompson said. “10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision.” Exciting stuff! Now enjoy his brand new video below!
The circus that is Lindsay Lohan‘s life continues with her latest court appearance and sentence of mandatory rehab for 90 days. On Monday, Lohan had pleaded no contest to the charge of giving false information to a police officer and reckless driving, all going back to car crash last summer.
I’m happy that she got mandatory rehab as opposed to a matter of days or hours like the previous times. Hopefully she’ll be able to deal with whatever issues she has to in order to put all of this nonsense behind her once and for all. Perhaps she can take a page out of her character, Cady Heron in Mean Girls with this next stage in her life. “When you get bit by a snake, you have to suck out all the poison, that’s what I had to do, suck all the poison out of my life.”
Now that she has gone in for booking, her sixth mugshot has just been released and LiLo does not look very happy in it. Check it out below. In all seriousness, I do hope she gets better and we can close the book on all of this.
In the past couple weeks, I’ve posted 7 episodes of an eight part documentary web series called The Grindr Guide. The series follows the lives of five gay men as they explore sex, dating and friendships through geo-based application Grindr. The eight-part web series was filmed over a six-month period during early 2012 and debuted on YouTube in March 2013.
The final episode has been released and it follows up with the guys on how they feel about the app based on their experience and how it makes them feel as a person. Some seem like they’ll continue to use it, while others prefer who they are as a person when they are not using the app. Some interesting discussion and things to think about.
Do you guys have Grindr? Have you had Grindr and then deleted it because you found you were wasting time, had a bad experience, or got into a new relationship? Share your experiences and opinions in the comments after you watch the video below.
Flash Mobs may have been done a million times already but for me, but these flash mob marriage proposals always get me. There’s something about about the surprise factor, the music, and all of the work put into it that makes it so touching and the reaction of the unsuspecting future spouse always melts my heart.
In this video, the handsome gay couple (Gabriel and Daniel) are at a restaurant on a patio, when some random guy busts out into dance on the sidewalk. Soon others join in and it isn’t until later when one the guy who wants to pop the question joins in that his boyfriend has any clue what’s going on. At this point the performance is directed at him and his boyfriend dancing in the front of the pack. The way they set up the moment where he actually gets down on one knee is just perfect.
If you want a little sunshine on this Tuesday morning, check out the fun and adorable proposal below.
Paramore have just released their second single called “Still Into You” from their upcoming self-titled fourth studio album that comes out on April 9. Their first single from the album came out in January and is called “Now.”
The pop-rock song is really catchy and I think it’s going to do well. The chorus goes like this: “And after all this time, I’m still into you / I should be over all the butterflies / But I’m into you / I’m into you / And baby even on our worst nights / I’m into you / I’m into you / Let em wonder how we got this far / Cause I don’t really need to wonder at all / Yeah after all this time / I’m still into you.” The lyric video features hand shadow puppets singing to the lyrics and it’s quite cute.
Watch the lyric video below and let me know what you think of their new song!
