  • Good glory, does this Mexico City exhibition of Frida Kahlo’s wardrobe—including pieces that had been locked away for 58 years—look astonishing or what? (Univision)
  • While I wish I’d never seen this video of Al Roker talking about how he sharted at the White House, I also feel oddly compelled to share it with you. (Atlantic Wire)
  • Occasionally, the entire blogosphere will erupt in simultaneous, near-unanimous affection for one obscure Tumblr or another. Yesterday, it was this. (Edith With Googly Eyes)
  • Mostly I do a pretty decent job of pretending that whole MTV Teen Mom phenomenon never happened, but then something like this occurs, and I’m forced to acknowledge that the final days might be upon us. (US via The Frisky)
  • Weird and fascinating: people are using Liquid Tide to buy crack. (New York)

    The New York mag article on stolen Tide being used to buy drugs… This world has gone strange.

    whats equally astonishing about the frida stash, is how she could look so chic wearing those clothes. I’ve tried wearing a huipil and it was incredible frumpy and dowdy-ish on me. And to think now teen moms wax their kids unibrow while frida proudly flaunted hers. p’shaw.

      You’re onto something there. I can’t wear “ethnic” stuff either. It is similar to a friend of mine who says that most people look better with either curly or straight hair, though there are a few people who can do either. We haven’t figured it out yet. If I had to guess, I’d wonder if it had something do with the chest/shoulders area. Or maybe height. Or maybe the waist. Anyway, I know what you mean.

      And I’m glad that others can go there, even if I can’t.

    That exhibit looks amazing.

    I can’t wrap my head around the Tide story. I know feeling comfortable can make people buy a brand, and I even get the smell = happy sensation. But happy enough to accept Tide as payment for drugs? Wow.
    I’m not even going to try to wrap my head around the 3 yr. old’s brow waxing. I don’t want to understand that.
