What was Christmas like twenty-five years ago? In the pages of the Frederick's of Hollywood catalog, it was hot. The lingerie retailer has been in business since 1947, but filed for bankruptcy earlier this year. But let's remember happier times, shall we? We got our hands on a catalog from 1990, when the hair and the smiles were big—and the satin was shiny.
The cover promises great things.

I blame theHondaBro

I played this game so much back in the day. So much nostalgia racing around Monaco as “Driver Williams”.

So everybody is posting Offset Crash Test pics of their cars...

Not surprisingly, no such test done on the F355. Surprisingly, I did find a pic of a real-life crash that ended similarly.

I have no doubt that the car would crash poorly when compared to mainstream cars in an identical test.........as with any exotic sports car, I suppose.

<i>The Unbelievable Gwenpool </i>Finale is All About the Incredible Power of Comic Books

The Unbelievable Gwenpool was an odd book when it was first announced and it continued to be an odd book when it came out. The initial inspiration for the book was a variant cover for Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2, which depicted a female Deadpool wearing a hot pink and white costume lounging in a pool.

This image then took off with fans and cosplayers, gaining enough popularity that...

Don Jr. Reportedly Dreams of Being a Book Boy

It appears that Don Jr., a taxidermied subway rat life brought back to life by a witch’s curse, is searching for a book deal. The New York Post reports that, according to publishing insiders, “Trump Jr. is shopping a tome, and is being repped by top agent David Vigliano’s literary firm, AGI Vigliano.”

“It’s unclear what the book would cover,” the Post continues, which makes sense because I...
