"My mom licked me - that was her punishment. If I was a little uppity or if I didn’t listen or if she wanted to get my attention, she’d lick the side of my face or under my armpit. My mom’s a six-foot-tall amazon and she’d say, ‘’You came out of my vagina and I own every part of you,’’ and she’d lick me like I was her wee pup and she was a lioness. It was humiliating and really intense. Very primal. It’s not spanking, but it definitely works."

- Rosario Dawson tells The New York Times

Barack Obama to Honor His Musical Hero, Stevie Wonder
(from us magazine)

During Barack Obama's presidential campaign, Stevie Wonder honored him in song at rallies and fundraisers. Now the President is returning the favor to the artist he's called his musical hero.

On Wednesday, Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will present Wonder, 58, with the Library of Congress's Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

The salute, to be held in the White House's East Room and broadcast Thursday night on PBS, will feature artists including Martina McBride (who will sing Wonder's hit "You and I"), Will.I.Am, Tony Bennett, Paul Simon and India.Arie.

Obama last year told Rolling Stone that he really got into music during Wonder's heyday in the early '70s, when Wonder released albums like Talking Book, Innervisions and Songs in the Key of Life. "So that was a guy I loved," Obama said.

For true facebook fans!

Facebook Made Me Do It
Seven lies we tell ourselves about social networking.
By Raina Kelley | Newsweek Web Exclusiv

1. I Only Friend People I Really Know: Stop pretending you have standards; you will friend anyone. You would accept Bernie Madoff if he asked. You want your friend count to be sky-high. That's why I accept all sorts of people I haven't seen in 20 years and couldn't pick out of a line-up. I refuseto have one less friend than my arch nemesis from college. I will not tolerate a lower count than my annoying colleague who sucks her teeth in meetings whenever I say anything. Admit it, you're no better than I am--how many of your "friends" would you invite to your house?

I want one of these!

Text from the design blog-
How often does your cup of coffee or tea get cold in a day while working on your table at home or office? Not sure about you, but I have to visit the kitchen more than once to (re)warm my cup of coffee. If you too are suffering from the same snag, designer Dmitriy Shcherbakov has come up with an innovative device that will help you in warming or chilling your beverages in no time, without leaving your seat. Hailed as ‘Gradient,’ the portable device maintains a constant temperature, with the buttons located on the case, until you gulp the last sip of your coffee. The heating surface of the device keeps your cup warm, while the impeller located at the top of the case chills your beverages. The Gradient highlights the temperature on a LED display. The LED light turns red when set in the warming mode, and it becomes blue while in chilling mode. The portable device by the Russian designer runs on electric power (consuming 20 W) and measures133×112x240 mm only.

A little bit of color at the fashion shows

On a positive monday note. The New York Fashion Week is seeing more models of color. I applaud this, as I have been distraught in the past at the lack of color being represented in the fashion industry modeling side. This is a welcome change:)

We still ♥ Michelle Pfeifer

Michelle Pfeiffer: Turning 50 Has Been Liberating!

BERLIN — Michelle Pfeiffer has no problem with getting older _ in fact, she says, she found hitting 50 "liberating."

Pfeiffer appeared at the Berlin film festival Tuesday with "Cheri," directed by Stephen Frears, in which she stars as a 1920s lady of leisure who strikes up a relationship with a much younger man, played by Rupert Friend.

"It seems that my leading men just keep getting younger the older I get," Pfeiffer said a news conference. "It seems that people have an aversion to casting people of the same age _ luckily for me, I don't really mind it."

"The older you get, the roles actually become more interesting," said Pfeiffer, who turned 50 last year.

"If you think hitting 40 is liberating, wait till you hit 50 _ and I was surprised at how liberating it was," she said. "The anticipation of something is always much worse than the reality."

"Cheri," a melodrama which also stars Kathy Bates, is an adaptation of a novel by French writer Colette.

It teams up Pfeiffer and British director Frears 21 years after "Dangerous Liaisons," a film of which the actress said she had "fond memories."

"Cheri," which had its premiere in Berlin, is one of 18 contenders for the top Golden Bear award at the annual festival. The winner will be announced Saturday.

Love Stories

I always did enjoy a good love story:)

A new anthology of literary love stories—the third collection in the appealing Pocket Classics format—perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Here are nineteen stories from a rich array of writers, and here is every kind of romantic entanglement: from the raw, erotic passion of D. H. Lawrence and Colette to the wickedly cynical comedy of Dorothy Parker and Roald Dahl, from the yearnings of unrequited romantic illusions in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Winter Dreams” to the agonizing madness of jealousy in Vladimir Nabokov’s “That in Aleppo Once . . .” The objects of passion in these stories range from a glamorous silent-movie starlet in Elizabeth Bowen’s haunting “Dead Mabelle” to an emotionally opaque heart surgeon in Margaret Atwood’s “Bluebeard’s Egg.” Jhumpa Lahiri plumbs the depths of despair between a husband and wife separated by tragedy, while Lorrie Moore movingly portrays a husband and wife for whom tragedy becomes a bond. Katherine Mansfield, Tobias Wolff, and William Trevor explore the intricacies of long-term relationships, while Guy de Maupassant, Italo Calvino, and T. C. Boyle portray the initial, elemental force of love.

A collection as alluring, moving, and intoxicating as its timeless theme.

Odi et Amo: Why not stop and eat the roses?

Odi et Amo: Why not stop and eat the roses?

The Dzang of the week!

Hackers did there thing on the freeway in the US. They hacked into the freeway alert signs in early rush hour traffic. It is kinda funny, but of course it is kinda dangerous. What if the signs said something like"ROAD ENDING IN 500 FEET" then it would not be so funny to change it. But it's still kinda funny to be driving down the freeway in early morning traffic and to see that written on the normal traffic control sign:) kinda funny....:/
