Smartie Snacks 05-30-2011
I’m currently in my dissertation cocoon but have been taking snack breaks to look up goings on in the pop culture world. Here are some snacks I thought would be of interest to the smartipop crew:
Do sexy women get more stuff for free? I hypothesize yes. Here‘s a one woman experiment attempting to answer the question. (VIMEO)
Forever 21 is doing it’s best to continue warning girls about the horrible task that is doing math by selling a magnet that says “I’m too pretty to do math.” Feel free to come up with other slogans Forever 21 could sell instead in the comments. (SOCIOLOGICAL IMAGES)
Bridesmaids did awesomely. If you haven’t seen it, run to the nearest movie theater and do so. NOW! Before I bite you in the ass! (How awesome is this headline?) (JEZEBEL)
Lady Gaga dropped her album after coming up with a game similar to Farmville – Gagaville. From what I understand people could advance to levels that allowed them to listen to the songs on her album before it was released. Okay, if that’s how you want to spend your time. (MTV)
The world didn’t end. That’s exciting. But this guy made a lot of money taking non-refundable deposits to take care of people’s pets after the Rapture that didn’t happen on May 21st. (BUSINESS WEEK)
It’s Memorial Day everyone! Remember to take a moment of silence at 3pm to remember all of those who gave their lives in service to our country.
