You Can Now Get A Pregnancy Test Out Of A Vending Machine At This Bar

Oh, Pub 500 in Mankato, Minnesota. You are a special, special place. But I won’t judge you, because I don’t know you all like that. All I know is, you have apparently found good reason to install a very special vending machine in your ladies room. The kind of vending machine that I’ve sometimes wished I had in my own home… the kind that will make it really easy for women out on the town to make an informed decision about what precisely they should be ordering at the bar that night: a shot of Jose Cuervo, or a small glass of seltzer water, please. Learn more about the pregnancy test gone mobile in today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day.

Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis Caught Smooching . . . Or Something

Remember 2 weeks ago when we saw photos of Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher enjoying a motorcycle ride together? Looked fairly innocent, right? Well, this weekend, Mila and Ashton got up to some other behavior that looks far less innocent … and far more like the couple are engaged in a romantic relationship. Now, whether or not the couple are officially a “couple” remains to be seen but based on the lovey dovey nature of their canoodling behavior this weekend at a party together, I’d say they are absolutely much more than “just friends”.

Guns, Moms, And ‘The Dark Knight Rises’: Playing The Blame Game In The Face Of Tragedy

PITNB’s NEW popCULTURE CLUB: theoretically putting the “culture” back in “pop culture,” one post at a time…

***

This past weekend we all pointed fingers in one direction or another. Most of us pointed at a 24-year old gunman who took lives which were not his to take. Some of us pointed at guns and gun legislation. Others pointed at mothers– mothers who took their children to a midnight movie showing at a theatre in Aurora, Colorado and a mother who may have seen something important in her child that she did not address soon enough. Even a movie, The Dark Knight Rises, saw its fair share of blame. Inadvertently or otherwise, many of us referred to the Colorado massacre as ‘The Dark Knight Rises shooting,’ and headlines made note of the killer’s references to himself as The Joker. When we cannot comprehend an act (either of beauty or malice), it’s natural and important for us to figure out the individual person or thing responsible. Children want to know where babies come from, adults want to know where humans come from, and we all want to know how a tragedy occurs. But in seeking that knowledge, I find that we inevitably participate in the blame game which is– perhaps– how our society arrives at certain tragedies in the first place.

Movie Review: ‘Beasts Of The Southern Wild’

For months now I have been hearing about a film called Beasts of the Southern Wild but for various reasons, I haven’t been able to find the time to see it. Honestly, I haven’t had the time to see many of the movies that I’d been hoping to see. After reading Shannon’s post on the film last month, I was determined to make the time to see it … and last night, I finally did. Beasts is a difficult film to describe but I will do my best in my review below. It is, IMHO, one of the most compelling and powerful films I’ve seen in years … and its young star, Quvenzhané Wallis, is nothing short of amazing. More »

Half Way There

After deciding to take it easy on the 7 mile run early Saturday morning, I knew I’d have to make up the run sometime Sunday. So, that’s what I did. I spent a couple of hours at the gym yesterday running my buns off … and I managed to complete a half marathon distance! Surprisingly, I felt so fresh after my run that David and I were able to meet up with Emma for a dinner/movie date last night. I’d say I had a very productive Sunday, wouldn’t you? More »
