Concert Stimulus!

Concert stimulus! Where's Waldo?

Wow, that little Malia really gets around. Mexico with friends earlier this year, Thursday night--- and hey! Isn’t that a school night?----a One Direction Concert with her royal babysitters Secret Service Pals---and hey! Mama Antoinette, should you really be leaving your daughter with those dirty escort chasers? ----and then Saturday, she took in some Sasha Fierceness, that time with two members of her family. That’s one active 13 year old.

It Gets Better For Progressive Dan Savage

MTV’s newest mouthpiece, Dan Savage, not to be confused with his dead ringer Shore Store owner Danny Merk, has been barreling in and out of school auditoriums with a slew of top tee looks. Dan Savage and his newest graphic message Tee.

Playing the role of Poster-Middle-Aged-Gay-Guy for the critically important, new campaign to stop LBGT teens from killing themselves, dubbed, “It Gets Better,” Progressive Dan has wanted to make it clear to all LBGT teens that suicide is stupid. Why would you kill yourself when you can kill your parents? Wait, sorry that’s Occupy Wall Street’s stance, and we’re positive that Dan has no affiliations with them or anyone from the Tides Foundation.

No, Dan feels as we do here at PD, that LBGT teens shouldn’t go through the hassle of killing themselves, when clearly the coming Work and Reeducation Camps will take care of that.

See? It does get better, with Work and Reeducation Camps (that desperately needs a glitter embossed or bedazzled font). It’s like dieting. Are you few pounds from your goal Pelosi-like bony fingers? Don’t worry about it, it gets better.

At the Work and Reeducation Camps.

Clash of the Socialist Social Etiquette

It’s that glamorous time of the year, where government leaders and their beards spouses and mistresses converge on the G8 Summit, for a week of organized walks in the forest and lavish meals over which the straining issues of the day are to be chewed over. The only gathering of more noted glitz than that of the G8, is of course the upcoming G20 summit to be held in June, at Los Cabo.

Seriously, Cabo. Oh yeah, PD predicts the event will be uber safe, as POTUS already sent his eldest daughter down to Mexico to test the waters, back during Spring Break.

The G8 is a roller coaster ride of impromptuly staged photo ops, and resort wear. Listen here, honey.

Thus far the best snaps taken have been of coming out ceremony of France’s New First Girlfriend, the feisty Valérie Trierweiler. The freshly minted President of France, Mr. François Gérard Georges Nicolas Hollande’s love of the ménage à trois has added quite a bit of drama to the political landscape. With his former-cohabitation partner and mother to his four children, Ségolène Royal, posed to accept his quid pro quo offer of President of the Assemblée, all international press eyes were on his very jealous current flame’s reaction to the news in the midst of the G8 lime light.

Mix in an always domineering and sour faced Michelle Antoinette, and the two ladies were truly too sociologist peas in a pod. A battle of the don’t touch mes eventually settled on a terse forward hand clasp, with Michelle Antoinette coming out as the fashion victor for once.

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.

Long Live the Queen's Shoe Double!

The Rules of Royalty Queen Elizabeth double shoulder padding it for the good of England.

This may come as an earth shattering revelation on par with finding out that the Muslim Brotherhood is anti-Israel or that Strauss-Khan is a bit of a creeper, but we here at PD aren’t big fans of monarchies. Really at all. Don’t like them. Find them a bit on the grotesque side. In fact last year when the media was busy dry humping the People’s Princess Take Two Kate Middleton, seven out of ten of our writers had to be put on medical alert due to excessive dry heaving.

With that in mind, the recent Q & A session published with Queen Elizabeth Take Two’s dress designer, Stewart Parvin, didn’t serve to get us anymore pumped up for the Jubilee, but rather has motivated the PD office to stock up on crackers and Smecta.

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.
