Man Colors

by Mary Kelly

tag urself, i'm bill

Color For Men

The color craze was hardly my thing (I could never tell the difference between good color or bad color) I do remember you could hire yourself a color consultant to look at your clothes and tell you what to wear. After looking at this book, I still can’t really tell the difference. Perhaps I am not that sophisticated or I don’t see that well.

For the 80s, this was probably a good purchase. However, I don’t think anyone is really talking about colors like they were then. The fashion is outdated now, but if it still works in your world, by all means, color away. 80s hair is totally optional.

What do you take me for?

by Shaun Usher
Sitting behind a sheet of glass at the British Museum in London, inscribed on a clay tablet in an ancient script known as cuneiform, is solid proof of two things: firstly, that poor customer service--an affliction that somehow feels like a modern phenomenon--has actually been a plague on societies for at least 3775 long years, and secondly, that humans will never really change. For this is in fact a letter of complaint, sent by a furious man named Nanni to a Babylonian copper merchant called Ea-nasir, in which said customer makes very clear his dissatisfaction with the service experienced by his messengers. The letter was discovered in Southern Iraq, in a place then known as Ur.

Translated transcript follows.

(This letter, and many other fascinating pieces of correspondence, can be found in the bestselling book, More Letters of Note. For more info, visit Books of Note. Image © Trustees of the British Museum.)

Tell Ea-nasir: Nanni sends the following message:

When you came, you said to me as follows : “I will give Gimil-Sin (when he comes) fine quality copper ingots.” You left then but you did not do what you promised me. You put ingots which were not good before my messenger (Sit-Sin) and said: “If you want to take them, take them; if you do not want to take them, go away!”

What do you take me for, that you treat somebody like me with such contempt? I have sent as messengers gentlemen like ourselves to collect the bag with my money (deposited with you) but you have treated me with contempt by sending them back to me empty-handed several times, and that through enemy territory. Is there anyone among the merchants who trade with Telmun who has treated me in this way? You alone treat my messenger with contempt! On account of that one (trifling) mina of silver which I owe you, you feel free to speak in such a way, while I have given to the palace on your behalf 1,080 pounds of copper, and umi-abum has likewise given 1,080 pounds of copper, apart from what we both have had written on a sealed tablet to be kept in the temple of Samas.

How have you treated me for that copper? You have withheld my money bag from me in enemy territory; it is now up to you to restore (my money) to me in full.

Take cognizance that (from now on) I will not accept here any copper from you that is not of fine quality. I shall (from now on) select and take the ingots individually in my own yard, and I shall exercise against you my right of rejection because you have treated me with contempt.

White privilege on a Red Line train

by adamg

Jamie Davenport reports on an incident Thursday night on a Red Line train ordered held at South Station until the police could clear a group of rowdy black teens off her car. She watched silently - until a cop ordered a black kid who wasn't part of the group off the train as well:

The boy says,

"I don't know them."

The police say,

"It's an order. Everyone in the group has to get off."

I collect my bags. The police looks at me and says,

"Not you. You're not in the group."

The police places his hand on the boys shoulder and guides him off the train. In a moment of temporary rage blindness I stand up and scream,

"He doesn't fucking know those kids."

The police looks at me and says,

"Is that true?"

To which I say,

"Yes, and it was true when he said it too."

The police release the boy and he sits down across from me again. We share a moment of blankness and then tears well in both of our eyes. He waves me over to the seat next to him. He says,

"That was because I am black. Wasn't it?"

I nod. He looks down sheepishly at his shirt and says quietly,

"I'm just happy they didn't hurt me. That would kill my mom. And she is not someone you want to mess with."

I say the only thing I can think,

"I'm so sorry."

He says,

"With all that's going on in the world I am so scared all the time."

The fact that Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen are best friends in real life makes me so happy




Never stops making me smile. I want someone like this in my life. 💜

Okay so the best thing,the best thing about Sirs Patrick & Ian being best friends is that they met because of the X-Men movie.

I saw Sir Patrick speak a year or so ago and someone asked him about their friendship.  He told this story about how I think they’d once or twice worked on the same production but had had very little interaction, and that when he’d been a kid, he’d utterly looked up to Sir Ian, who had had an established theater career at a very young age. 

People assume that they’ve been friends since they were young, which makes sense given the sort of work they’ve done and their career trajectories, but no. Sir Patrick basically had a giant hero-crush-from-a-distance on Sir Ian for most of his life AND THEN on the set of X-Men, their trailers were put next to each other and they were significantly older than anyone else on the set, so they started spending their downtime together. 

And became inseparable.  And this is amazing. 

So everyone who wants a friend like this, you have time.

Kristen Stewart at the “Café Society” Premiere After-Party

by Tom and Lorenzo

Lol I love this assessment

Kristen Stewart attends the after-party for the “Café Society” premiere hosted by Amazon & Lionsgate with The Cinema Society at The Carlyle n New York City.


Karl Lagerfeld isn’t enamored of Kristen because of the way she wears Chanel (which is hit or miss, at best). He’s enamored of her and throws his brand at her feet because of the way she dresses for herself.

To wit:

That is exactly what Karl Lagerfeld wishes he could get away with. He’d love to slap double C logos all over this outfit, walk it down a Paris runway and call it haute couture. You know we’re right.

The New Trump Logo Looks Like Every ‘90s Sportswear Brand

by Rebecca Jennings

Likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump revealed his official campaign logo today, and as many a jokester on the internet has noted, it looks like sex.

But a few people in the more fashion-y corners of the internet have noticed that the logo looks like something else: a style of branding closely associated with delightfully tacky sportswear from the 1990s.

Mused writer Ayesha Siddiqi:

This is very true! The Trump/Pence logo does look like any number of fashion logos from two decades ago. But the question remains: which one?

It might be Ralph Lauren Sport:

It might be Phat Farm:

It might be Tommy Hilfiger:

It might be a badly Photoshopped amalgamation of Champion, Reebok, and Nautica. Either way, stay tuned for the inevitable accompanying fragrance launch.

Are These the Best Wedding Cakes of All Time? — Weird Food

by Ariel Knutson

NO they look like diseased vaginas ACTUALLY.

This week the internet has been abuzz with a new trend in wedding cakes. While "naked cakes" have been all the rage the last few years, something new has been popping up from many a cake baker, and they will definitely rock your world. Enter: the geode cake.

In case you're not familiar, geodes are volcanic creations that look like normal rocks on the outside, but when you split them open, they reveal a sparkling interior. The wedding cakes you see below all use sugar rocks to get that sparkling cut into the cake. According to Refinery29, these beautiful creations are definitely not easy to make, and can take anywhere up to a week to create. Now, that's a labor of love.

Here are a few of our favorite examples of the geode cakes we've found on Instagram.

Erykah Badu Donating Concert Proceeds to Clear Detroit Rape-Kit Backlog

by Nate Jones

your fave is less problematic today

The 20th Annual Webby Awards - Inside

Erykah Badu is donating the proceeds from her upcoming Detroit concert to a nonprofit that tests the city's backlog of rape kits, the Detroit Free Press reports. Five dollars from each ticket sold for Badu's August 12 performance at the Chene Park Amphitheater will go to the African-American 490 Challenge, which raises money to test the 11,000 abandoned rape kits found in a Detroit police warehouse in 2009. (Each test costs $490.) Badu will also donate the proceeds from the concert's $100 "pre-show reception" and $1,000 "VIP reception" to the campaign, in what Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy calls a "phenomenal assist" to the cause. There are tens of thousands of untested rape kits across the United States.

Lance Bass to Host Gay Reality-Dating Show Finding Prince Charming

by E. Alex Jung


BELLA New York Cover Launch Party

Logo is getting some skin into the dating reality-show game. The network has announced that former boy-band heartthrob and married man Lance Bass will host Finding Prince Charming, a Bachelor-style reality dating show for gay men, in which 13 "charming and gorgeous" men will live together in one house while competing for "the nation's most eligible gay heartthrob." (Yes, they'll all be living in a house in L.A. together. Them's the rules!) We should note that Finding Prince Charming isn't actually the first of its kind: Back in 2003, Bravo attempted a similar show with Boy Meets Boy, which lasted a brief six episodes and was never renewed. No doubt the big question on every viewer's mind will be: What if the guys just fall in "love" with one another? (Like, remember this?) But perhaps therein lies the drama.

Pokemon Go Has Invaded Forever 21, Sephora, and Every Mall in America

by Rebecca Jennings

Pokemon Go, the just-launched mobile game phenomenon that I couldn’t possibly begin to explain to you, is already invading fashion. Turns out, people are catching Pokemon while shopping for clothes, and often wandering into stores they otherwise would’ve ignored solely for the purpose of obtaining a rare species. Welcome to 2016!

Because the game requires players to physically move around in the world, sometimes to the point of accidental leg soreness, much of the conversation around Pokemon Go centers around the best places to find them. And often, those places happen to be some of the least likely locations to find a swarm of eager nerds playing nostalgia-based video games.

Against all odds, people are catching Pokemon in Forever 21:

And H&M:




American Apparel:

And this mall, where Justin Bieber was shopping:

Stores, of course, have caught onto the opportunity all of this potential foot traffic presents. One T-Mobile location even posted a winky sign that maybe wasn’t given corporate approval:

An indie clothing store also proudly advertised itself as a PokeStop (a place where players can stock up on items like PokeBalls):

 Photo: Imgur

Meanwhile, other stores are actively trying to curb Poke-mooching with signs like this:

Sephora even allegedly kicked customers out who were clearly only there for Pokemon Go:

Many stores, however, seem eager to monetize this bizarre new phenomenon of customers randomly walking in with absolutely zero intention of purchasing anything. The writer of a Forbes article entitled "How Pokemon Go Can Lure More Customers Into Your Local Business" received a barrage of questions from shop owners asking how they can turn their stores into PokeStops or Pokemon Gyms (places where players can fight each other).

For now, these locations are predetermined by the game developers, but it’s not hard to imagine a future in which enterprising retailers could pay a sum in exchange for becoming one of these hotspots, a la fashion brands getting in on celebrity mobile games to sell clothes.

In the meantime, the lucky stores that are finding themselves overrun with Pokemon are already figuring put how to engage with players. Consider Woolworths, which responded to a customer's Pokemon Go-related complaint with a series of Pulitzer-winning puns:

Hey, if there’s one thing could save the fate of the American mall in 2016, it’s Pokemon.

Justin Timberlake Has Joined The Cast Of Woody Allen’s New Movie

by Martin

JUSTIN. quit it with this FUCK SHIT

Justin Timberlake can say “bye, bye, bye” to being on the list of people that have not worked with a lil’ ol’ creeper. Joining the ranks of true thespians like Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart, JT has signed on for Woody Allen’s latest movie.

There’s no word on the title or plot of Woody’s newest feature. Casting is underway, and The Hollywood Reporter has a short list of the people just dying to spend intimate months with him. Kate Winslet signed on earlier in the summer, as well as Jim Belushi. Yes, According to Jim Jim Belushi. Justin has been cast in a supporting role. Joining him for second-tier billing is Juno Temple, the chick from Vinyl. Amazon, who is distributing Cafe Society and producing the TV show he’s doing with Miley Cyrus, is back on board and committed.

Even though I’m assuming that Kate will get the brunt of the questions ranging from “How can you work with Woody Allen?” to “What do you think about Woody Allen rape jokes?“, it’ll be fun to see how Justin responds to a similar line of questioning. That is, if he’s even allowed to answer. You know, since the last time he tried to put his two-cents in went so well.

This is the same movie that Woody claimed earlier this year that he wants to set in an amusement park. And since it’s a Woody Allen film, it’s most likely going to be more early 20th century costumes, some zippy lines, and a guy mumbling. I assume that means Justin has been hired to do a mix of his SNLclassics“, like singing costume mascot and Dick In A Box. What else could it be? Other than his extraordinary and not-creepy work in The Love Guru. Justin also has his natural hair working in his favor, which we know Woody likes; see Jesse Eisenberg, star of Cafe Society. Mark my words, this is gonna be about a down-on-his-luck singing mascot for a salon that specializes in perms. Yeah, that’s it.

Janelle Monáe in Sherie L. Nevett at the “Queen Sugar” Screening

by Tom and Lorenzo

Janelle Monáe attends OWN Presents: ‘Queen Sugar’ Screening during the 2016 Essence Festival at Theaters at Canal Place in New Orleans, Louisiana.


This woman has super powers. How else to explain that she can make a sequined houndstooth suit work for her?

This is not supposed to work for anyone; especially if you skip the shirt part and fool everyone into thinking you’re wearing a sequined houndstooth jumpsuit. And it damn sure isn’t supposed to work with snake sandals and a Blossom hat. She’s clearly a mutant. Or a witch. Whatever she is, the end result is always the same: fabulous.

Pasta Doesn’t Make You Fat, Says Best Study Ever

A new study that food-pushing Italian grandmothers will love found that eating pasta is not associated with higher body mass index (BMI). Italian researchers looked into this topic because some people still believe that having any pasta will result in fatness; even Italians have been increasingly shunning pasta in favor of ...
