Wait. Is an All-Juice Thanksgiving Meal Really, Actually a Thing?

By now, we're all well-acquainted with the wonderful, faddish world of juicing. Personally, I like juice. If Juice were a Broadway musical, I would pay $179 plus fees for orchestra seating. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean I would accept juice's marriage proposal, even if juice had already picked out a ring. And I certainly wouldn't juice my entire Thanksgiving meal, which is what one writer proposes in an article published today on Fast Company's Co.Exist blog

It opens: "I am so tired of reading unrealistic gourmet Thanksgiving menus full of complicated ingredients that take hours and hours to make…[And] frankly, I'm in no mood to carbo-load."

The solution? "Breathtakingly obvious. A Thanksgiving Day Juice Cleanse." My breath was taken, for sure. 

Kamenetz then proceeds to outline various "juice substitutes" for classic Thanksgiving dishes. For example, a committed Thanksgiving juice-cleanser might swap out roasted turkey with a glass of Odwalla Chai Vanilla Protein Monster. Still too calorie-laden for you? Try canned turkey broth. 

I'm pretty sure it's satire and/or the writer is trolling (and in that case, you're welcome), but some on Twitter seem to be convinced:

Preview: George Clooney Gets the Kusama Polka Dot Treatment (Or So It Appears) for W’s Art Issue

Here's a preview of W's December/January Art Issue cover, featuring George Clooney. After the snapshot above appeared on PopDuJour's Instagram (the proprietor, Ahmad-Ali Swaid, runs a blog by the same name and oversees social media for GARAGE), it was immediately posted to the forums. That was three days ago. No other photographs or scans of the magazine have surfaced on the Internet since. 

For the publication's Art Issue, W typically collaborates with contemporary artists on conceptual celebrity covers (one of the most notorious examples: for the November 2010 issue, Kim Kardashian appeared on the cover fully naked except for three strategically placed Barbara Kruger text banners). Although the fashion glossy has not yet released the name of the artist who collaborated with W on Clooney's cover, it is most likely Yayoi Kusama, who is known for her distinctive bright polka dots. The Japanese artist has often incorporated clothing design and runway shows as part of her artistic practice; in 2012 she collaborated on a collection with Louis Vuitton

Watch: Rampage Promotes Black Friday with a ’3-Way Girl Fight’ Parody Video

Here's a marketing concept that's not to my liking: To promote its Black Friday deals, Rampage created a video which parodies frenzied Black Friday shopping.

Making fun of people who participate in an advertiser-created retail holiday as a way of encouraging people to further participate in said holiday — that's a little too much hypocrisy for my delicate sensibilities.

Also not helping: the not-so-vaguely sexist '3-way girl fight' (as the company's Facebook copy puts it) at the center of the clip. 

Here are the upsides: The ad is titled 'Supermodels on a Rampage' (a cute & clever play on the brand's name) and stars the lovely Chrissy TeigenHannah Davis and Tori Praver.

Karmen Pedaru Puts on a Creepy Smile for the Cover of Vogue Turkey’s December Issue (Forum Buzz)

It’s rare we can find flaws in any of Karmen Pedaru’s work. The Estonian supermodel consistently delivers impressive blue chip campaigns and alluring commercial work. But her newest cover for Vogue Turkey December 2013 provoked an unexpected reaction from fans on the tFS forums.

“This is creeping me out. I love Karmen but this scares me,” wrote MON

The cover, lensed by Turkish photographer Cüneyt Akeroğlu, has a charming and solid concept. A close-up of a stunning model that is smiling and wearing a sparkly festive dress. So what went wrong?

Yesitsdagny further elaborated why this doesn’t work. She posted, “Her mouth looks huge in this photo. Like said above, it is indeed a creepy looking cover. When I saw the title of this thread I was quite excited but unfortunately I must say I'm disappointed. They have Karmen and the result looks like this? Such a shame.”

Maxlinden presumably also felt uncomfortable looking at the image. “Great, Harley Quinn has a Vogue cover!” he joked, comparing Karmen to the super villain from the Batman series.

“If her facial expression wasn't so bad this would be amazing,” gossiping correctly pointed out.

Sorry, Karmen, it pains me to write this, but with the effect this cover has had on most of us, we’d rather forget this cover ever happened.

Studies Show: Using Duck Face Will Make Your Instagram Selfies More Popular


image: Kim Kardashian’s Instagram

Reports of the death of duck face are greatly exaggerated. A new study finds that Instagram photos which feature the much-maligned selfie pose tend to garner more "likes" than standard smiling shots. It's true. 248k people liked this duck face selfie Kim Kardashian on Instagram earlier this year. If she hadn't done duck face, she probably would have lost followers. Amazing social media savvy. I bow.
