I Could Use a Little Romance Sometimes


Oh, Fabio.  You really are a living, breathing romance cover.  

I'm a sap for romantic stories of love conquering all.  In this case, love conquered the spirit of competition in the Olympic games for these 9 couples.  (Time)

This has to be one of the best pieces of satire that I've read in a while.  And yes, it IS satire.  Author Amber Estes, a student at UGA,  fooled everyone, even sites like Jezebel with her sarcastic wit - and kudos to her!  Here are her instructions on how to snag that perfect husband while in college.  (Red&Black)

When I first read this headline, "Is an Expensive Haircut Worth It?" I assumed they meant like a $100 cut.  But $950???  For a haircut???  Unless that cut comes with a freakin' diamond tiara, it's not worth it! (Shine)

Zachary Levi kissed a fan for a $1000 donation at a charity event at Comic Con this weekend, and from this video, you can see it was quite a smooch!  Then Nathan Fillion wanted in on the action.  And so did Adam Baldwin.  Can't blame 'em - who could resist Levi?  (Crushable)

The first reviews of "The Dark Knight Rises" are already coming in, and the authors of negative reviews are already receiving death threats and insane comments from agitated readers.  Stay classy, internet.  (Digital Spy)

Whoa.  Cops in Ohio busted a $3 million marijuana operation that was being run by a 17-year-old high school student.  I guess it's not too surprising that his parents didn't notice the $6,000 in cash he had in his room - have you ever seen a teenage boy's bedroom?  No adult wants to dig through one - they're usually biohazards!  (WCPO via BoingBoing)

One of the best things about summertime is the sudden appearance of 3D sidewalk art all over the world.  Here, a European artist inspires a Japanese artist thousands of miles away to create his own stunning drawings.  (NPR)

The posters for "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2" are excellent examples of Photoshop run amok.  I'd like to think all the depressed or pissed-off expressions are due to each actor thinking, "I know, I know, the art department has ruined me!"  (Pajiba)

Looks like Congress wants states to force online retailers to have to start collecting sales tax.  Yay for state budgets but boo for shoppers!  (ABC News)

Hero of the day - Stephen St. Bernard, a 52-year-old bus driver from Brooklyn, saved the life of a 7-year-old girl when she fell three stories from her apartment's air conditioning unit!  There's a video of his unbelievable catch in the link.  (The Stir)

After an eleven year break, No Doubt has reunited for a new album.  The first single, "Settle Down," proves that the band has recaptures its pop dancehall sound.
