Feel fabulous, not flabulous, ladies. That's the message from Belle Bouton who is helping Mama Mio pimp its Get Waisted Body Shaping Serum.

Yea. It's all a little bit weird.

M.I.A.'s 'Born Free' Takes on Ethnic, Religious Persecution


If you are squeamish or faint of heart, you may want to reconsider viewing this nine minute video, Born Free, from M.I.A. (Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam). If you can get past the extreme violence in this video and grasp the metaphor presented, then, by all means, give it a watch.

The artist has put forth a thoughtful examination of the discriminatory violence that occurs around the world. For the metaphor, M.I.A. uses redheads or "gingers" as they are referred to in Britain, to illustrate her point. Gingers, those with pale skin, freckles and red hair, are considered by some to be inferior. The group is used as an example of persecuted groups around the world.

Hornitos Tequila Makes You Horny For Cougars and Hotties


Spotted. That man/woman who plays that creepy Mormon gangster on HBO's Big Love. He/She helps a guy get off worked so he can...ahem...get off with a couple of hotties hanging at the pool table. Hmm. How very un-Mormon-like.

It's all part of a Hornitos tequila campaign dubbed Purer Than Your Intentions. In another commercial, a guy calls the cougar he met last night only to be surprised at who she turns out to be.

Short and sweet. Just the way we like it.
