  • Truman Says Big Time Opportunity

    Björk has invited submissions to be the director of the video for her new single, "Innocence". Listen to the song (it is kinda catchy, though it failed the living room dance test), then follow these bewildering instructions:

  • Truman Says The Dao of QVC

    “If units don’t sell at a retailer like Bergdorf Goodman, it’s my business. If they don’t sell on QVC, it’s my ego. For me it’s all about avoiding the risk.”

    -Chloe Dao, quoted in Forbes

    Sometimes nice, quiet, hard-working girls really do win, as Chloe Dao proved when she became the victor of season two of Project Runway. Her unfussed manner and super-elegant designs had us cheering for her all the way.

  • Truman Says Snazzy Dressers: the Adelaide Crows

    Many people are a little shy about wearing a)skimpy garments, b)loud patterns. The Adelaide Crows prove you can do both, and still be super-sexy.

    By the way, the game they play is Australian rules football, something like what we call soccer, but with hands allowed.

  • Truman Says Mister Rogers' Sin

    In his time, Mister Rogers did a lot of good things - like teach us to deal with angry feelings, and to distinguish between reality and fantasy. And he did at least one very bad thing: by always wearing cardigans, he made these marvelous button-up sweaters something no one would ever want to wear until they were at least as old as Mister Rogers!

  • Truman Says A Stepladder for Fido

    Slate's Ron Rosenbaum does a close reading of Skymall magazine. Absolutely priceless for anyone who has ever passed time in an airplane by reading this catalog of hand-crank devices, doodads, and inventions you never knew you needed.

  • Truman Says Banned in Blekinge!

    Crocs, those brightly-colored Swiss-cheese clogs that became ubiquitous last year, and which James Cramer recently touted on Mad Money, have been banned in Blekinge hospital in Sweden (via Boing Boing).

    Apparently they were causing static electricity, which made the machinery go haywire.

    There's something about the name Oscar de la Renta that makes folks dress "sophisticated" - however they interpret that word. Getty's Frazer Harrison conjured these remarkable portraits from yesterday's de la Renta store opening in L.A.

  • Truman Says Low Rise Briefs, Botox on Your Lunch Break

    Ooh, Thursday Styles is good this week! We have:

    Ginch Gonch and the men's wacky underwear explosion.

    The Times goes inside auditions to be a QVC host.


    Getting Botox becomes as fast and easy as having a pedicure (almost).

  • Truman Says "Genius" Recap

    Or: Women and the Men Who Love To Style Them, Episode 2

    The week's Boogie-ism (sorry, Dr. Boogie-ism) of the week proves to be prophetic: "Jim, I love Jim. But what the hell was THAT? It was like Carrot Top in drag!"

    Which is pretty much the same reaction Jaclyn and her judges had after reviewing Jim's attempt to make this poor girl look like Gwen Stefani.

  • Entertainment Sci-Fi Sexpot

    What kind of reaction did you get from being on the cover of Out last fall? Amazing! I've had to sign so many copies of the issue. I'm not part of the gay community, so I don't read the literature very often. It's funny when you are a part of it, and then it's everywhere! It was a good thing for me and hopefully for people reading it. We did a poll on Popnography and it turned out that our readers felt strongly that you should come to this event dressed in a towel. I feel obligated to ask you why you chose to wear something else.

    Got $29k to burn? Homos can play games too, you know, and the shopping site 20ltd would like to sell you a "good versus evil" foozball table that bills itself as the world's most exclusive, complete with ultraviolet-etched pitch markings and ergonomic handles.

  • Truman Says YouTube Pick: The View from Your Shopping Cart

    Ask A Gay Man hits a major shopping outlet (it looks like Kmart to us) and calls out some very sad, very typical middle American fashion victims. Big baggy carpenter jeans with bad whitewashing around the butt, couples wearing matching pleather bomber jackets, teenage girls sporting those horrible hats even Britney doesn't don anymore. All this captured at crotch-level by a camera hidden in the front of AAGM's shopping cart. Brilliant.

  • Truman Says Ghosts of the Bathhouse

    The New Yorker brings us this fascinating dispatch on the Loehmann's that just opened up on Manhattan's Upper West Side. It's on the site of the old Continental Baths, "where Bette Midler got her start (clothed), singing torch songs poolside, accompanied by Barry Manilow, to an audience of men wearing white towels."

    So how does the new discount clothing shop measure up?

  • Entertainment Five Questions (and Then Some) for John Tartaglia

    The out star of the Disney Channel's Johnny and the Sprites appears in this month's feature documentary ShowBusiness, about the travails of four musicals on the Great White Way. Childhood crush: I had a sick obsession with Martika of Kids Incorporated at 7. I wrote a letter asking her to marry me. And she wrote me back and said she couldn't because I lived in New Jersey and she lived in Los Angeles.
