90's Style is Coming Back!
Which one are you most excited about?Nineties Fashion Trends That Are Destined To Come Back This Year
<!-- .entry-header -->
Hang on to your bucket hat, because soon we’re going to be raising the roof for these slammin’ 90s fashion trends. If you go to the mall and wonder whether you’ve somehow managed to time travel back to 1994, you’re not alone. Every store is piled high with crop tops and Fresh Prince overalls. Miley Cyrus and Kylie Jenner have mastered the 90s grunge look so well that you forget they were still in diapers when it first came into style. And let’s not forget how Adam Levine bleached his hair a shade of yellow we have not seen since Justin Timberlake in his N Sync days (after all these years I still have no idea how to spell it. Is there a * somewhere?)
The high-waisted jeans and scrunchies prove that anything from the 1990s is going to make a revival, so here are 10 other nineties trends that we can expect in stores soon:
1. Butterfly clips
Put down that scrunchie because there’s going to be another 90s hair accessory that demands attention–the butterfly clip. What could be better to jazz up your twisted cornrows than a sparkly plastic clip?
2. Goofy Hats
We can thank Blossom for the denim bucket hats with rosettes and Mad Hatter top hats of the nineties. She made a comeback on The Big Bang Theory, so it’s only natural that her hats make a reappearance too.
3. Elephant Leg Jeans
After wearing skinny jeans that make our legs look like blue sausages for years, it would be a nice change if elephant jeans got resurrected and we could see the circulation return to our thighs.
4. Spice Girl Platforms
A wedge trainer is essentially Baby Spice‘s platform sneakers, so I give it 4 months before the entire range of Buffalo boots is back in stores.
5. Bike Shorts
Bike shorts are essentially just a cropped version of leggings aren’t they? So technically we could make this one at home right now. Just make sure to throw in a geometric print so they’ll be 90s all that and a bag of potato chips. (Did anyone ever actually say that?)
6. Clashing Jackets
Not so long ago these jackets were only worn by grandparents who refused to give them up from the early 1990s. Now hipster track jackets are becoming brighter and more patterned. Give it three months and everyone in Brooklyn will be wearing one of these.
Bandanas deserve a revival just so we can have another disguise for dirty hair. Dry shampoo doesn’t always work.
8. Pastel-Tinted Sunglasses
It doesn’t matter how much sun protection they offer, wouldn’t it be so much better to see the world through rose (or blue) tinted sunglasses rather than dull black for a change? No wonder the 1990s were such a happy time.
9. Mood Rings
Showing your boyfriend your mood ring to let him know that you’re pissed off is waaaaaay better than the modern #youknowwhatyoudid #pissedoff tweet. Just for this reason, they deserve a revival.
10. Check Skirt Suits
Before September I guarantee there will be a Clueless clothing line coming out with all your favourite 90s Cher staples. The check skirt suit will be an instant sell-out.
Written by Tom Burns for The Good Men Project
When I first became a parent, I found myself either constantly giving or receiving advice. Potty training, co-sleeping, TV time -- there are hundreds of conflicting opinions out there about every parenting-related topic. However, when my really good friends become parents for the first time, there are certain pieces of advice that immediately jump to the top, nuggets of wisdom that I mention before all others. Some are philosophical, some are mundane in the extreme. But when I sit down and really think about being a parent, these are 25 of the most important lessons that I think any dad (or any parent for that matter) would definitely want to pass on to their kids.
1. Winning is fun, but it teaches you nothing. Failure is the best teacher in the world. Winning is a trophy, failing is an education.
2. The key to surviving failure is to not take it personally. This is why video games make great educational tools. Mario doesn’t rage at the world when he fails to jump over a pit. He just starts back at the beginning and tries again until he figures out how to rescue that princess.
3. Ketchup is for French fries and hamburgers. Never hot dogs. That’s why the universe invented mustard.
4. Lying to protect someone’s feelings isn’t lying. It’s called empathy.
5. All the best stuff happens in the dark. Fireworks, movies, trick-or-treating, roasting marshmallows, Space Mountain. Try to remember that when you hear a noise in your closet at night.
6. Grown-ups don’t know everything. Most of us are just trying our hardest and faking it as best we can.
7. If a grown-up, corporation, religion, teacher, boss, and/or significant other tells you that they, in fact, do know everything, that they speak the absolute truth, that’s called fundamentalism, which is a fancy way of saying that they’re lying.
8. Even though, yes, I just admitted that I don’t know everything, pointing that out when we’re arguing is never going to work in your favor.
9. When you’re doing laundry, read the labels on your clothes. When in doubt, wash everything in cold.
10. One day, in the future, during a job interview, someone will ask you “What’s your greatest weakness?” This isn’t an invitation to be honest. This is a test to see how well you can answer a stupid question.
11. Almost everything in life is better in moderation, particularly TV, water parks, the Internet, and Twizzlers.
12. Want to prove to me you’re a big kid? Make it through a two-hour movie in the theater without squirming or complaining. Want to take it to the next level? Make it to the eighth inning of a baseball game.
13. Yes, everyone is going to die one day. And, yes, that really sucks.
14. No, I don’t know what happens after we die. But that’s a fascinating question. Keep asking fascinating questions.
15. I’ll tell you this -- I promise you will never be alone and, even after you die, we will always be together. And there is no one in heaven or on Earth who can prove that that isn’t true.
16. Farting is always funny. Even at the dinner table. Actually, especially at the dinner table.
17. Good rule to live by: If they look like they’re fine, it’s OK to laugh. If they’re really hurt, shut up and help.
18. Ignoring race and class doesn’t mean that you’re enlightened. It just means that you’re good at ignoring things.
19. Debt is evil and oppressive. If you’re going to go into debt for something, make sure it’s worth it.
20. On a related topic, a college education is worthless if you don’t know how to properly use an apostrophe with the letter “s.”
21. Science both answers questions and keeps discovering new questions to ask. This is why science is awesome.
22. As far as anyone knows, Santa Claus and vampires might actually exist. The world is a much more interesting place if you accept the fact that, yes, there really could be a Monster at the End of This Book.
23. You can be mad at someone and still love them at the same time. This can be very confusing.
24. Talking about abstract things is important. Having big, wild conversations about concepts like art, music, time travel, and dreams makes it much easier when you’ll eventually need to talk about things like anger, sadness, pain, and love.
25. Every dad needs to teach his kids the lyrics to “The Diarrhea Song.” During a long family car trip… But only when they’re ready."

Imagine the reaction from your friends and family if they called you and instead of a standard boring voice mail greeting, they heard the unmistakable voice of the one and only Cher. If you've got some cash lying around, it could happen.
Cher is one of many big names who've signed on to a campaign called Sound Off for Autism Speaks, which will raise money to support autism research and advocacy. For $299, the legendary diva will record the personalized voice mail message of your choice -- or even a message specifically addressed to a friend or loved one. The only limit: it's got to be either 20 seconds or 250 characters of text.
The offer is only good through this Friday at 5 p.m. ET, so you'd better put your order in now. One of the stars participating, Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, is "sold out" -- he's not doing anymore, but Cher is still waiting for your order. Other stars participating include Jack Black, Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, Star Wars icon Mark Hamill, Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons and Batman himself, Adam West.
Last year's inaugural Sound Off for Autism Speaks campaign raised more than $100,000. Visit AutismSpeaks.org and search "Sound Off" for more information.

May he rest in peace, After 781 straight Alabama Crimson Tide football games, Dick Coffee has died at the age of 91.
Dick Coffee's streak would have been longer, but he put off college to serve in WWII. Then, in 1946, the Alabama freshman attended the season opener against Furman. He'd go to every single Crimson Tide game played—including road games and bowl—right up through January's national title. That's 781 straight.
Coffee died Friday at the age of 91, but had been in failing health for some time. Only death could have stopped him, though: “He was in a wheelchair and couldn’t hear, but he was at all of them.”
Amazingly, Coffee fell short of the record for most consecutive college football games attended.
“I thought he had the all-time record, and I sent it to the Guinness Book of World Records when he got up to about 700,” Melton said. “They wrote back and said no, he was second.”
The record was set by Giles Pellerin, who attended 797 consecutive USC games, beginning in 1926. He died in the Rose Bowl parking lot in 1998 during the second half of the USC-UCLA game.

One big movie coming out this weekend! Wanna see what it is? Read reviews? Get Showtimes?
Oh My, Mr. Zesty! What a bru-ha-ha you are causing.
Question: Is the People Magazine ad offensive? (One Million Moms are encouraging people to take this action: Please send Kraft an email letter and urge them to discontinue their offensive "Let's Get Zesty"campaign immediately. Kraft has gone too far and needs to hear from you now!)
The moms add: "Christians will not be able to buy Kraft dressings or any of their products until they clean up their advertising."
Or is it "playful and flirtatious" as Kraft says? "Our Kraft dressing's 'Let's Get Zesty' campaign is a playful and flirtatious way to reach our consumers. People have overwhelmingly said they're enjoying the campaign and having fun with it."
Clint's daughter Johanna is a riot. Over the weekend she was saying her prayers: "Thank you for Grandpa, Grandma, Jesus, my brothers, that Mommy has purple in her hair, and thank you that in the morning I'll be a frog and can do anything I want. Amen." What have YOUR kids been praying for?

EWWW! SAYING "HAI" TO THE EYE? In Japan, going to second base is now licking your partner's eyeball! A rash of pink-eye has popped up in Japanese schools due to this latest craze, AND about 1/3 of sixth graders there have already done this. More and more kids are wearing eye patches due to Conjunctivitis. The human mouth is filled with bacteria and when kids go around licking other kids’ eyeballs, it’s going to happen. The non-technical term for this fetish is, “Oculolinctus,” also known as “worming.” If it's happening there, you better believe it is happening here! Read all about it.
He's not really a doctor, but he may have played a mad scientist in a movie once or twice. He was in Toronto with some friends when an elderly couple had an accident right in front of him; the 77-year-old man fell on a scafolding and suffered a gash to his neck! John Malkovich jumped to the rescue and did everything he could to stop the bleeding until the paramedics got there. The man lived and Malkovich was given the credit by the medical professionals. See the whole story here.

President Obama last night joined Conan O'Brien onstage at the Washington Hilton for the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, and gave his fifth address to the organization of journalists who cover the White House, and the President himself. In his remarks, the President poked at himself, as well as some of the news organizations and politicians in the room. He also showed a spoof promo for Steven Spielberg's followup to "LIncoln," a biopic called "Obama."
But while everyone had a good laugh during the speech, President Obama closed his speech on a more serious note, reminding the audience of the important role the media plays in American society, especially during times of crisis like the Boston Marathon bombings and the explosion that killed so many first responders in West, Texas.

Russell Crowe has posted a video on YouTube which he claimed showed a UFO passing by his office window in Sydney. The Oscar-winning actor posted a link from his Twitter account to a YouTube video with the message: "UFO? Time Lapse Photos Outside RC's Woolloomooloo Office (THESE ARE REAL!)" The 23-second video showed a bright rectangular light moving across the Sydney horizon in tandem with another rectangular light at ground level. The "big surprise" was filmed after Crowe and a friend set up a camera to "capture fruit bats rising from Botanic Gardens" outside the actor's office in the inner-city Syndey suburb of Woolloomooloo, according to his Twitter.
Harry Styles has scored a hit—but it's left him reeling in all the wrong ways.
Taylor Swift 's ex was clocked in the crotch with a shoe Tuesday during a show with his fellow One Direction boys in Glasgow, Scotland—a freak mishap that saw him collapse to the floor in pain as his bandmates and the audience looked on in both horror and morbid incredulity.
It all went down during a break in the show as Styles and his bandmates—Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik—chatted up the audience.
A fan then threw a shoe at the stage near Styles, prompting the singer to pick it up and wonder where the other one was.He got his answer: Suddenly a second shoe hurtled to the stage and hit the 19-year-old singer in the groin, causing him to keel over and curl up on the floor as he cupped his crotch. The incident also caught his bandmates by surprise, shouting "Man down!" as Payne and Malik checked in on Styles to make sure he was all right.

Melinda Doolittle adamantly disagrees, telling TMZ, "It is shocking to see such allegations. In my experience on the show, the 'Idol' team strives to champion everyone, regardless of race. However, each contestant is explicitly told that the withholding of information that may compromise the show or artist, can and will result in immediate disqualification."
Uh-Oh! Best Buy totally messed up on one of its coupons recently. First, it offered a coupon for $50 off a purchase of $100 or more as long as the customer used a Mastercard. Like most coupons of its type, it excluded some items, such as iPods and certain brands of TVs. But it didn't exclude gift cards. The coupon didn't even limit the number of purchases. All you needed was to spend $100.
People freaked out. Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/best-buy-coupon-fail-2013-1#ixzz2InntvcdU

What about YOUR profession? Perhaps the explanation will provide more insight. As per the piece, Kevin Dutton, the author, indicated that ”a number of psychopathic attributes [are] actually more common in business leaders than in so-called disturbed criminals — attributes such as superficial charm, egocentricity, persuasiveness, lack of empathy, independence, and focus.” So, maybe it makes more sense now that we think how objective broadcast professionals and journalists must be to distance themselves from reporting.

THIS IS THE FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE DAY… MAYBE THE DECADE...Unidentified dude is a disabled veteran who was homeless only a year ago but finally started to get benefits, so things are better for him now. And he just wanted to pay it forward. Hence, he went down to the electric utility's office (in Stockbridge Georgia) and hearing someone talk about being unable to pay, paid 15-20 other people's power bills in cash, $1,500 worth. That's not all. When the man heard that one woman’s power was cut off, he paid her entire bill to get the lights turned back on. He then gave her more cash to feed her children. Clerks at the utility office were in tears.

Maria Von Underwood!
It sounds like mighty big gulp for a relative novice, but Carrie Underwood has been signed to play arguably the most-beloved nanny in the history of entertainment – in the most beloved musical of all time.
The country-singing fourth season American Idol winner, 29, will play Maria von Trapp in next year's live TV broadcast of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music, it was announced Friday.
"Speaking for everyone at NBC, we couldn't be happier to have the gifted Carrie Underwood take up the mantle of the great Maria von Trapp," said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, which plans to air the three-hour show (based on the original Broadway version) sometime around the holiday season a year from now.
"She was an iconic woman who will now be played by an iconic artist," Greenblatt said in a statement, referring to von Trapp – who was first immortalized on Broadway in 1960 by Mary Martin, then in the Oscar-winning 1965 Best Picture of the Year by Julie Andrews.
Underwood's previous acting credits were roles on TV's How I Met Your Mother, as the love interest of Ted (Josh Radnor), and, in her film debut last year, as a church leader in Soul Surfer, a coolly-received feature about real-life shark victim Bethany Hamilton.
No word yet on who'll play the dashing captain with the whistle.
