Eau de Cracker

King Samir Shabazz, Grand Arch Duke of the New Black Panther Party (okay, he’s only the National Field Marshal), is by no means just a mere sideline complainer, or Betty Bitchalot. No, no, dear PD pals, King Samir Shabazz is a problem solver. King Samir Shabazz, the problem solver.

During a recent Black Panther get to together and pot luck, King Samir Shabazz shared the inspiration behind his newest venture:

“I love black people, and I hate the goddamn white man, woman, and child, grandma, aunt, uncle, Pappa Billy Bob, and whoever else. Redneck Tom and Blueneck Robert, and whoever else you wanna name. I hate the white man. I hate the very look of white people. I hate the sound of white people. Goddamnit, I hate the smell of white people.

So enlisting the help of top name French fragrance gurus, Shabazzy formulated his Eau de Cracker cologne and perfume sets, scheduled to hit the CV shelves by mid-summer.

A Mani to Die For!

The Nails that Those Crazy Kids are Dying For bridges

Everyone knows that Mexico doesn’t have a problem with drug cartels. Any violence south of the U.S. border, any ice chests stuffed with reporters’ heads, forests of rape trees, sheriffs’ body parts, any of that blood gang jazz is just an odd coinkydink, not at all related with a slightly corrupt government kowtowing to the gods of drug trade.

There’s no correlation there whatsoever. What? Are you one of those Ron Paul bumper sticker stickin’ right wingers that believe in a secured border? Pleeease. That’s so moronic.

Since we’ve established that there really isn’t any type of drug trafficking turf war going on in Mexico, because you know, there definitely isn’t, PD wants to give you some inspiration for your next mani, just in time for that summer fiesta in Cabo.

Be Your Own Silver-Lining

Wanting a different spin to holiday hair?

While most beach bunnies clamor to their hairstylists demanding bleach-bottle-blonde in the summer season, that type of action can prove to be a tragic mistake. Here at PD, we’ve made a promise not to hold back and to give you the full fashion truth, so help us God.

Steel yourself. Not everyone looks good as a blonde.

In fact, let’s take that one step further: Most people don’t look good as blondes.

Is your world shattered? It shouldn’t be. The harsh reality is that blonde hair makes normally flawless skin look ruddy, and both packs on the pounds and years.

Natural hair color can be a beautiful thing, albeit a somewhat boring thing. Inside of trying to pull off something that most cannot, in this time of global uncertainly and yet another Sacha Baron Cohen movie, for this summer, may we at PD suggest silver tinting? A Touch of Silver

Why go with silver tinting? Overall you retain your natural hair color, which automatically match your skin tone, but under direct sunlight, and a $47 eco-bulb, the silver tint will add a hint of sparkle and brighten up even the mousiest of browns. What could be better than your slightly amped up natural color?

Silver tinting is of course a 2012 trend, but unlike other trends that will only tread water till all of the Sheiks leave the Caribbeano, a silver tint will translate beautifully into the Fall and Winter months.

Tranny Egyptian to the Boardroom

Ever thought about why eyeliner?

Eyeliner is a cosmetic staple, peddled by pink-clad Mary Kay’s saleswomen worldwide, with the average women owning at least three different kinds. Here at PD, we were curious if you’d had a chance to consider what it is, where it comes from, and why the hell you devote five minutes to it each morning? Eyeliner rediscovered from the John Boy King.

Let’s start with history. In a sense eyeliner started out as the original pair of shades. Back in Ancient Egypt, eyeliner wasn’t just a female thing; in fact to go against popular belief, guyliner wasn’t invented by hairbands of the late 70’s and 80’s, and it certainly wasn’t invented by angsty Emos. The universal application of eyeliner in Egypt was done for two main reasons. First, as a form of political superstition to ward off the evil eye; you know the types of bad mojo like being enslaved, bitten by an asp, or being forced to marry a sibling. Second, eyeliner was also thought to protect the eyes and skin from the glare of the sun. Unlike Cairo circa 2006, one couldn’t just drop $5 at a market stall and pick up a new pair of knock-off Ray Bans. Nope, inside they would grab their eyeliner, or kajal (you can thank us later when don’t pull a Chris Matthews and actually win Jeopardy), to endure those long summer days.

The Miracle Mask

Amazing aspirin.Asking for some Aspirin?

Guess what? If you’ve got two tablets of aspirin and a smig of water, you’ve got yourself one hell of a face mask.

Process: Palm two tablets of aspirin, and place under the water faucet for a nano-second, just enough to gently splash the tablets. Then rub the aspirin until it turns into a chalky like paste. Smear on your beautiful face. Put 5 minutes on the clock, and then rinse. Done.
