“Well round here, between Normandie and Western, we call this here a little twenty twen twen…”

♥♥ If you read my Women Making History interview last week, you’d know that bacon turns me on. Check out this iller than swine flu bacon nail job on The Daily Nail.

♥♥ Would you agree that NBC’s Community is funnier than 30 Rock right now? You gotta watch this amazing DJ Steve Porter (of Slapchop remix fame) Community remix  Tigre Chino.

♥♥ This is one of those things that is so wrong, it’s right. Follow Shit Precious’ Mom Says on Twitter for some non-sequitur gems like “Hello, Pink Dot? Thas right. Bucket of eggrolls and some Vaseline.”

♥♥ And on that topic, do you participate in all those triflin ass twitter trending topics (currently #ARealWife #YouKnowYoureUglyIF)? Apparently, that’s “Black Twitter” The Awl gets into it.

♥♥ Humorous Star Wars Street art compiled on Interbent.

♥♥ Urlesque has discovered that Gwen Stefani and Akon are dog whisperers. Or maybe I should say dog yodelers. Apparently their song “The Sweet Escape” has dogs across the nation singing, as evidenced by YouTube.

♥♥ And perhaps Michael Jackson really was the child whisperer, or had the cure for childhood cancer in his dick. Lookit how into “You Are Not Alone” this toddler gets. Via Videogum.

♥♥ Download these covers: Anya Marina’s cover of T.I.’s “Whatever You Like” heard during the lame Gossip Girl threesome on Sheena Beaston // Jack Johnson’s cover of The White Stripes’ “We’re Going To Be Friends” on Cover Lay Down //Solange’s cover of The Dirty Projectors’ “Stillness Is The Move” on Stereogum.

♥♥ Plus, Women With Mustaches (no accessories needed.)

♥♥ MeanRed‘s e-mail blasts have put me on to two cool things recently – Soaps that look like classic video game controllers, and the amazing face paint art of James Kuhn.

♥♥ For those of you that like to, or would like to customize your sneakers, but don’t know what kind of paint to use, just get a JGoods kit. Via C’est Lavie.

♥♥ Are safety pins next in line after zippers for a hard trend? Via Blogue.

♥♥ New York Magazine’s The Cut has a video sneak peek of Lady Gaga in her 30-foot long, outer nipple pasty dress on next Monday’s Gossip Girl.
