This is the Best Slow-Motion Wedding Video Set to ‘Blurred Lines’ EVER (You have to watch it!)

I’m a sucker for wedding videos. Ones that include touching speeches, wacky father-daughter dance sequences, wedding party dance sequences – you name it. However, this particular video has been making the rounds today – and for good reason.

The guys over at Super Frog Saves Tokyo (haha, love the name) put together this video compilation of the slow motion video booth they set up at the wedding of Quang and Ellie. I mean, what kinds of things could happen at a slow motion booth? Watch the video – and you’ll be pleasantly amused.

And hopefully you aren’t sick of this year’s summer anthem “Blurred Lines” just yet, but it’s the perfect song choice for the things that go down in this video.

Enjoy!

California Likes their Porn Young and Asian; Kentucky Loves Hentai

united-states-of-streaming-p0rn

Yes, you read that headline right.

There was a recent statistical analysis of the search terms that appeared on porn streaming site Pornhub – and the most popular search terms for the sunny state of California were “Asian” with “teen” and “massage” following not too far behind. In Kentucky, interestingly enough, “hentai” was the most popular search term.

You’ll also find that Mississippi spends the most time on the site (averaging in at 12 minutes), while Rhode Island came in last, spending under ten minutes.

While the analysis is quite interesting, I’m really curious about the fascination behind “creampie” in a good number of these states, as well as Nevada’s fascination with one particular porn star, Anita Queen.

What do you think, readers?

Audrey’s former cover girl takes to the red carpet on Thursday for the premiere of Miu Miu’s “Womens’ Tales” at the 2013 Venice International Film Festival.

Miu Miu has been collaborating with Venice Days to present this film showcase for women, by women – all to celebrate the voices of female creativity. Two films premiered at the showcase: “Le Donne delle Vucciria” (from Palestinian actress Hiam Abbass) and Ava DuVernay’s “The Door” (who was the first African American woman to win Best Director at Sundance).

Fashion house Miu Miu had stated that the series “Womens’ Tales” was to showcase “the need to stimulate reflection on women’s experiences” in all aspects of the film industry, “so they can put their heads together and share their thoughts on the nature of that ‘special something,’ so vibrant and so different, that a woman’s gaze can bring to the creation of a work of art.”

In conjunction with the two films, there will also be a series of talks with women in the industry. Pinto will appear on the panel “The Creativity of Producing” with Jules Daly, producer of “The Door,” Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures, and Michelle Dockery, star of Downtown Abbey on August 31st.

Counting Down to LA Food and Wine 2013′s Asian Night Market: Thi Tran of Starry Kitchen

Asian Night Market at this year’s Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival is quite the studded spectacular. Hosted by popular Japanese chef Masaharu Morimoto, the event will attempt to re-create the same flavors and experience of night markets in Asia, ranging from Taipei to Kuala Lumpur. The 25 restaurants that will be participating will include high-end established eateries, as well as mom-and-pop spots. Admission to the event will include food and drinks.

We got to have a quick chat with Thi Tran of Starry Kitchen – check it out below! For more info about the event, click here.

1. What’s the sexiest dish you’ve ever served/prepared and why – is there a story behind it?

Hmmm. Depends on what you want. Hot and spicy or do you want silky and slippery? Sounds dirty, but it’s how I think. I think the dessert I created for the Marijuana Dinners I collaborated w/ Chef Laurent Quenioux on- the Osmanthus Panna Cotta w/ red wine poached Asian pear. It’s silky, lightly sweet with a hint of floral essence because of the Osmanthus flower petals infused into the cream. It melts in your mouth, and is really good with the Asian pear too.

2. What was the last best thing you ate (and where was it)?

Hot pot at Boiling Point. I just love hot pot in any form. It’s something about tasty hot broth with meat I really love . It’s just fun and gets me excited. So satisfying.

3. Your-go-to recipe for an end-of-summer party?

Even though I make Asian food, I have a thing for homemade corn dogs. Just love hot dogs or spicy links, and always taste better when you make the batter yourself.

4. What’s your food guilty pleasure?

So many, but I have a thing for Slurpees and Kit Kats. I can’t explain it, but it’s just too tasty.

5. (If you have been to Asia) Where was your favorite place to eat and why?

HK or Taiwan street food. I love curry fish balls from the streets of HK, and love the stinky tofu in Taiwan. It taste different than the States. Love it, LOVE IT!!!

The Daily SHAG | Lee Jong-suk and Kim Won-bin for Trugen

Hands down, Lee Jong Suk and Kim Won Bin are two of my favorite rising young stars at the moment – and also my favorite celebrity bromance. The pair first worked together in the 2013 relaunch of School and since then, have been an inseparable pair, appearing in CFs and editorials together. The two recently worked together on a commercial for OB Beer – and have teamed up again for clothing brand Trugen.

Two dreamy Korean actors are definitely better than one. I welcome the slew of more bromantic projects between the Jongsuk and Wonbin couple. Enjoy the pictures of their Trugen campaign below!
