BUSTED: SEXTING

Friday, January 29th, 2010
Two teenagers (ages 12 and 13) were handed out heavy felony charges after being caught sending "sexts" (sexy text messages) to one another. In this case, the two were exchanging nude photos of themselves and in result, were charged with child exploitation and possession of child pornography. If convicted, the middle schoolers could be required to register as sex offenders. Um, okay, what?! By this logic, every six-year-old kid who plays doctor with her six-year-old neighbor is worthy of psychological assesment and jail time. We thought these laws were meant to protect children and not be insanely misused to shame teens about their totally natural sexual exploration? Via: The Chicago Tribune

Jump down the rabbit hole, but covered and draped in jewelry. In anticipation of Tim Burton's new rendition of Alice in Wonderland, we'll be seeing lots of Alice in Wonderland inspired creations.

Hellz Party! Vans x Hellz Collection drops in February. Enjoy the party photos of our favorite bedazzler, Kerin Rose, Editor-in-Chief, Hana May and her side kick: that always amazing head of hair.

[Married to the Mob & Fucking Diaries] Rumor has it Miley Cyrus is set to play Demi Moore's daughter in the up-coming film, L.O.L: Laughing Out Loud.

Happy Friday Kids!

V-Day Pan-tay

Thursday, January 28th, 2010
Valentines Day isn't exactly our favorite holiday (Its Christmas/Hanukkah because we get presents, duh!) but since V-Day is filled with lots of hearts we give it a hearty pass (and you eat chocolate, no complaints there). These Ma Mignonnette panties, part of their The Show Pony collection, are the perfect Valentine's Day outfit (maybe not in public) and each package comes with a crystal charm and handwritten love spell to trap enchant your significant other. Plus their lingerie is created with the intention to "fall in love with yourself, before you step out to bewitch all those that lie in your sights as well."

CHATROULETTE

Thursday, January 28th, 2010
hearty member Mish Way tries out Chatroulette and supposedly meets the "Jonas Brothers." "When I was in elementary school a bunch of us would screw around on chat rooms during computer class. This was way before chat was anything except typing to totally random people on the screen. No video, no photos, no tags, no nothing. And as much as all our parents and teachers warned us about perverts online, we still couldn't resist. I remember one time, we (a few of us girls) pretended to be Lacey Chabert from Party of Five. We made up all these crazy stories and tried to convince him that Lacey was into him. He seemed to buy it so we thought we were comedic geniuses. Looking back I realize that he was probably screwing us right back, or jerking off. Today I tried Chatroullette, an online chat service with video, audio and text that allows you to scroll through random chatters like gabbling. After about 15 seconds I figured out that the site is about 75% dick shots, 20% young boys trying to see boobs and 5% lonelygirl15 types. After being chatted up by a kid in a white leather mask, a headless stomach and what appeared to be a four-year-old suddenly, three teenage boys popped up on the screen. They all had brown, overly-styled hair and appeared to be in a classroom because of the florescent lights. Immediately, they started chatting with me: "Hi. How are you?" "Fine, how are you?" I replied. Wink smile from their end. "Do you recognize us?" I don't, so I say "no." Who are these clowns? They pressed on, "Can we ask you one question? Can we see your tits?" I could see all three of their greasy little faces smiling into the screen. So, I laughed. "Why not? Don't you know who we are? We're the Jonas Brothers." Then they proceeded to tell me that most girls on Chatroulette show their tits to celebs. I pretended I'd never heard of these so-called "Jonas Brothers." They seemed annoyed. I'm mad at myself for being slow on the second screen-cap. Before I could do it, they had moved on to another chatter. Because everyone knows that girls who don't show the "Jonas Brothers" their tits are boring."
