Planet Hiltron’s Celebrity Make-Unders Are Still The Funniest Thing Ever

Celebs, Like You've Never Seen Them

A while back these random images of celebrities gone “normal” started floating around the internet and they were so fun! And a little bit offensive, if you think about what their creator (Danny Evans) might have been saying about “normal” in America. But that’s a more complicated discussion and Planet Hiltron might be the simplest, funniest idea since Celebrigum… except there’s nothing like Celebrigum! So let’s not compare the two. Just check out these hilarious pictures! Sure, you’ve seen some of them already, but does Super-Sized Kimye ever really get old? I didn’t think so :)

A Photographer Shares Amazing, But Controversial Photos Of Children’s Rooms

Americans Versus Other?

The Huffington Post has a fantastic online series of photography projects with a cultural bend. This week they’re introducing James Mollison‘s book, Where Children Sleep, which was published a while back (as PITNBrs Becca and Missy pointed out). Mollison has taken amazing, powerful photos of children and their rooms from around the world. I enjoyed the pictures immensely, but a lot of readers are accusing Mollison of bias and really, lack of creativity. The difference between the rooms of the kids in America and the kids in say, Palestine is vast (for obvious reasons). But did the artists portray American kids as the spoiled, rich brats that many of them aren’t? Checkie out inside.

Are Jenny Saville’s Paintings Feminist, Misogynist Or Just Grotesque?

Art And The Femme

Jenny Saville is a world-renowned contemporary painter with a new solo exhibit at the Modern Art Oxford in the UK. Saville is known for painting the human body– usually that of a woman’s– with little desire to evoke traditional ideas of beauty, let alone femininity. In fact many of her nudes are of morbidly obese women, or depict women who appear to be battered and bruised. Still, she’s described as “kind of a feminist” and I’d like to take a closer look with the PITNBrs to see if that’s how this art should be classified. And I warned you– they’re either feminist, misogynist, or grotesque (or something else), so be prepared. And if your bosses don’t appreciate nudes, some of these are also NSFW.

A Little Bit Of Chicago

The TV Guide

Yesterday turned out to be the only day that David and I got to experience some of the amazing things about Chicago. Even tho we had to fly out late in the afternoon, we had all morning to enjoy some of the sights. I started my day early at 6AM so that I could enjoy a run in the city. Then, David and I attended the post-wedding breakfast hosted by our newlywedded friends Monique and Jay. Afterward, we met up with David’s BFF Alan who also happened to be in the city this weekend so, yeah, we managed to squeeze in a bit of fun before we had to fly back to LA. More »

That-Ish-Cray of the Day

When I got to @santlov‘s page I was like, “What am I looking at?” What I was looking at was probably the coolest thing ever aka the ToysRLikeUs page on Instagram. If you’ve always wanted to know what Woody from Toy Story would look like with an iPhone or a Heineken in his hand, your (somewhat twisted) dreams have come true. Special thanks to Johnny, the love of my life who’s responsible for today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day post. And now let us enter the hilarious world of Santlov.

A ‘Brave’ New World

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a much more productive day than my Saturday was. While Saturday was a day for lazing about, Sunday was a day for getting out and enjoying the beautiful SoCal Summer weather. After I did a bit of work in the AM, David and I made our way to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art so that we could see the new Levitated Mass art exhibit that went on display yesterday. After our visit to the museum, we went to the movies to see Brave. Last night, we ventured out for a nice evening stroll together. All in all, it was one of those perfectly perfect Sundays. More »

Justin Timberlake Comes To Your Home (Decor)

Sexiest Interior Designer Ever?

So I got lost in a vortex of “things I can’t afford for my house… yet,” and stumbled upon HomeMint. How funny that it also happened to be a site featuring designs by Mr. Sexy Back himself (yes, I’m still calling him that and plan to do so for quite some time)?! Justin Timberlake has taken his love for unique style and design (and architecture) and parleyed it into HomeMint. He’s teamed up with interior designer and leading celebrity stylist Estee Stanley (she’s styled everyone from Lea Michele to Penelope Cruz and of course, Justin‘s fiancee, Jessica Biel) and together they’ve made a collection of beautiful things I can’t afford… yet. But it’s still fun to look.
