Fall Breakers – Lady Products

fall comedy

We went on a weekend trip to Vermont last month and were doing a lot of clichéd autumnal activities.  Our friend Brian, who plays the scarecrow-man in our video, kept cracking us up saying, “Faaaaaall Break” like James Franco does in Spring Breakers. We are all big fans of the movie and think it brings up a lot of really important questions about feminism and sexuality in particular. We thought it would be fun to take that one step further! It also turned out to be a great excuse to eat pie with our hands. – Lady Products

Am I a Feminist, or What? ~ The Official Reference Chart

feminist-or-what

There seems to be mass confusion over what it actually means to be a Feminist. Don’t get me started on what it means to be a Humanist and how that is misinterpreted. If you going with “I am an Egalitarian Humanist” then more power to you, just make sure you represent and don’t just label.  During mature discussion, 20-somethings feel the need to pipe in and let us all know their exact/simple definition of the term “Feminist”, not really how the affiliation has come to be embodied in 2013. “A Feminist is anyone who believes that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities!” they say. REALLY? Because I’d never heard that before! You’re a GOOD little reader! Well…if you also consider the reputation and behavior of any institution of thought, it is a little more complicated to discern. We have all heard that definition, and some of us who have been around the block a little more than you and have the truth figured out. So put on your listening ears a little more often my young know-it-all Feminist Facebook friend. Next time you hear someone speaking about their definition or expression of Feminism, you will know the real answer.

Beverly Sparks Ramajones’ Campaign for President. Or something.

Marié Lake’s Excess Hollywood Indiegogo Campaign

CaptureMarie

Hi Funny Not Slutty ladies. It’s Marié Lake, host of Excess Hollywood. After watching one too many obsequious interviews by Billy Bush gushing over Suri Cruise, I decided to launch some web sketches and the first incarnation of Excess Hollywood, set in Palmdale, California was born with Jeremy Miller (Growing Pains) as my co-host. Now we are launching a full-blown web sit-com with my character Beverly Sparks-Ramajones joined by Brian Kiley (Conan writer) and Drew Doege (the infamous Chloe Sevegny sketches on the web). If you love celebrities, parody and celebrity-obsession please contribute. If you don’t but want a cameo, contribute bigger — we love nepotism in Palmdale. In any case, thanks for watching!

5 Ways To Celebrate Your Mess This Summer on the Fringe ~ Mallory Schlossberg

Sponsored by Molly Marjorie Rosenblatt Needs A Man (And Other Stuff)

So, we’re we’ll into the thick of summer (and that sounds disgusting), and well into half of 2013. If 2013 has not been going according to plan – didn’t lose those ten pounds? Haven’t found a husband/significant other/pet to alleviate your loneliness? Haven’t kicked your wine for dinner habit? Instead of beating yourself up, why not CELEBRATE it?

1. Go to your favorite bar in your sweatpants. OWN IT.

2. Eat an entire bag of pita chips because IT IS DELICIOUS.

3. Skip the workout for a shopping work out.

4. Delete your OK Cupid profile even though you haven’t met anybody. YOU’RE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF.

5.  Make an entire dinner out of the microwave. Carcinogenic? Maybe. Delicious? Potentially? Easy? YES.

Poor Girls Morning Routine Part 2 – Mirra Laes

makeup-on-the-cheap-tips

Continued from Part 1

Face washed: meh. SPF lotion on: maybe. Unibrow deconstruction attempt: Ugh. Okay, now I’m ready for makeup.  The first makeup item is foundation, I don’t use that primer crap and I’m not entirely sure what that is all about either.  This foundation is probably the exact color my face was at least three months ago and the only application method is swooping my finger in the mini tub and rubbing it between my hands and then aggressively attacking my face.  I have no cotton balls or special brushes ….maybe someday I’ll have a nice looking container with a fancy black and white lace design, with some gold too, and will keep all my super soft makeup brushes in it and that will be all its used for.  At this time my hands are now covered with the foundation and I usually find an old towel or “something” to wipe them on.

On to the blush! The blush consists of a small compact that contains its own little cheap black brush with a cracked lid that often falls off.  Also I don’t remember when I bought it, like, at all.  Swoop Swoop, and I’m done with that step.  This is the point where I may put my glasses back on to find my coffee cup and chug it.  I also might put on some chap stick, Burts Bees, in case you were wondering.  Glasses back off and I reach for my eyeliner so I don’t look like I’m 13 years old on this particular day.  I’ve got to get the eye liner on before the coffee shakes begin and after the hangover shakes end.  Currently I don’t even have the right color because I accidently grabbed grey instead of black at my local Walgreens because I was in a hurry BECAUSE I probably had some cheese to eat at home or something, and grey is like a shitty black that just looks shitty.

Game of Kardashians. It could happen.

game-of-kardashians

The third season of Game of Thrones is over and I’m feeling down.  You too?  Or are you happy you don’t have to listen to all this “Mother of Dragons” crap at work anymore when you’d rather talk about Khloe, Kourtney and Kim?

To those indifferent to or haters of both Game of Thrones and the Kardashians:

I was you a year ago. I had never seen Game of Thrones or any show starring a Kardashian. The way I see it, all Thrones fandom is on a continuum between two extremes.

You read all 4,000+ pages before TV series ever started, rabidly devour series episodes, then complain about ways they’re inferior to the books. And…

Dragons, really? Characters called Theon Greyjoy and Samwell Tarly? You’re a serious, busy adult with no time for this sexed-up Lord of the Rings nonsense.

I’m somewhere in the middle, which means I still get confused about plot points like why Jorah is moping around in the friend zone with Dany or how Stannis ended up with red Morticia Addams. Or why Jon Snow is always called “Jon Snow” and never Jon or Johnny.

I haven’t read the books, which means I can’t ask the book people questions without getting all spoilered to hell. And I can’t even commiserate about the show being over for now, because I haven’t paid my 4,000 pages worth of dues. So I really only have two choices – I can either read the books, which means I’ll have to quit showering, working and raising my kid for a year (what could go wrong?) or I bring some of you non-Throne watching dragon-scoffers into the fold.

If you’ve been skipping Game of Thrones to watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I think you’d be surprised to learn how much these competing shows actually have in common:

  • Game of Thrones already features the Armenian-sounding Baratheons and Targeryens; wouldn’t a House of Kardashian fit right in? There might even be a House Kardashian.  (Shut it, book-snob. You don’t know; the last books haven’t even been written yet.) [Read more...]

Poor Girls Morning Routine Part 1 – Mirra Laes

makeup-on-the-cheap

No car insurance? Oh well. No food money?  As long as there’s still cheese in the fridge we’re fine. Run out of eyeliner and foundation?  We have now entered a LEVEL 10 SPECIAL ALERT PANIC ZONE.

Let us, friends, discuss a poor girl’s take on makeup….

I’ll start right at the beginning.  I wake up and probably have some makeup on from the previous day, creased, caked, and smudgy, my eyes an especially gross event that requires vicious rubbing and picking while I figure out who has to go to the bathroom more urgently, myself or the dog.  The dog statistically has a 85 percent chance of establishing importance in this decision, and I end up immediately regretting it as my urgency goes up by 15 points after stepping out into the ever chilly morning (err noonish) air.

Once the pup has had all his needs taken care of (outside, breakfast, sufficient amount of morning recognition in the form of various pets) I step into the bathroom to do step 1 of my morning stuff.  Step 1 is wash face.  Washing face is essential since my face is covered in previously mentioned leftover makeup as well as drool no doubt.  I want to point out that the face washing situation is very simple. I do not have toner, I don’t have a special wash for certain days or situations, and I don’t have a special sponge, wipe or towel.  I have face wash, the same face wash the boyfriend uses, with little beads of something in it , and the word” Morning” on it in yellow or bright blue.  I use a very small amount, not to conserve as you would assume but because it dries my face out too much as I’m older and my skin is not as greasy and I should have put lotion on it before I went to bed anyway, BUT a poor girl cannot afford face lotion for night and day, that’s like a $9 an hour job luxury.
