It doesn’t matter how old I get, Hello Kitty always brings out the kid in me. That bulbous head, the cute little poppy colors, the adorable packaging … I just never tire of it. Now that doesn’t mean I’m going to deck out my house in Kitty decor. One, I don’t think my husband would appreciate it, and two, there’s just something a little less than becoming about a thiformrmm -year-old (ahem) donning the same cutesy hairpins as her toddler nieces.
Well, there’s nothing adolescent about the latest incarnation of Kitty madness: the Hello Kitty Noir Beauty collection.
BuddhaX is a new exercise concept that combines breakdance with power vinyasa yoga to create breakflow, a unique series of integrated dance moves and yoga poses. When done at a continuous, reasonable pace you can burn between 500 and 1,500 calories per hour (not to mention, look really cool doing it). Here, co-founder Japanese B-boy A.T.S of Rock Steady Crew demonstrates the BuddhaX CC Push-up, a core-focused movement that works out every single muscle. Try it — he swears anyone can do!
With the ridiculous stalemate in Congress and the bitter rhetoric starting up again as presidential election season approaches, it’s far too easy to retreat into our cynicism, holed up within the ramparts of apathy. Why bother, right? Everything sucks right now.
Then I heard a story. Out of a mundane request for yet another holiday gala, something else arose. A cup of coffee. A conversation. A moment.
This is the result. A little known bill in Congress, a South Korean pastor sacrificing to save North Korean refugee orphans. And a star who, instead of schmoozing with yet another group of corporate sponsors, chose to spend her time in this earnest plea. Sometimes we can make a difference.
Please help us pass the North Korean Refugee Adoption Act here. It literally only takes a minute.
In our Winter 2011-12 issue, The Awful Truth columnist Paul Nakayama discussed the ins and outs of the Hall Pass: a week off from your relationship to fool around with other partners. We asked our staff who their celebrity hall passes were and here are their responses.
Assistant Editor/Online Manager Janice Jann: Jake Gyllenhall mainly, but also Diego Luna, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Topher Grace.
Luc Besson‘s newest film, The Lady, stars international actress Michelle Yeoh portraying Burmese activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. The film opens today in select theaters across the U.S. Read our interview in our Winter 11-12 issue of Audrey.
Appropriately, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton visited Suu Kyi today at her residence in Rangoon, Burma, reportedly the first senior U.S. official in 50 years to visit Burma.
Wanna see the most typical face in the entire world? Here it is:
Look familiar? That’s right — the East Asian face is the most typical face in the world.
But not for long. Find out what the most typical face will likely be by 2030:
Every once in a while, I like to make a list. (OK, fine, I’m actually quite obsessed with list-making.) And since it’s my birthday (month), time to whip out that wish list for family and friends. These are the things I’m digging right now.
Misa Nail Lacquer in Beyond Infinity
It started with Chanel Jade. And then that elusive putty-clay color. Now pretty much everything goes — from navy to neon yellow. Unfortunately, for anyone over a certain age, those colors just look … well … desperate. Which is why I’m loving Misa‘s latest line featuring all these indescribable, out-there colors that are incredibly unique. My favorite is Beyond Infinity, a sort of periwinkle-teal with a hint of charcoal. (Don’t let the picture above fool you — the lacquer goes on way deeper and richer than that.) More grown-up that blue, way more fun than grey.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may be a bust (the newly revamped version pretty much does away with Arachne, the role Filipina American actress T.V. Carpio was to play), but we’re betting the new Sony Pictures film The Amazing Spider-Man, starring cutie Andrew Garfield and Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder, the Proto-Goblin, is gonna be the bomb. You’ll have to wait till next summer to see it, but check out the teaser trailer now.
Korean American actor Sung Kang is probably the king of Asian American indie films. But he’s made quite a name for himself in Justin Lin‘s The Fast and the Furious films, appearing in the latest four of five films in the franchise.
In the latest of the series, Fast Five is five times the action, excitement and fun as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of all-stars from the explosive franchise on speed to pull off one last job worth $100 million, with both a U.S. strike force fed (Dwayne Johnson) and a ruthless drug kingpin hot of their trail. Fast Five is on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download October 4; go to fastfivemovie.com for more info.
