Study: Guys Should Wear Black on First Dates and Interviews

What did Johnny Cash have in common with a Catholic priest? Not much, except for a propensity toward wearing all-black. Wearing black suggests neither extreme restraint nor a love of vices. Rather, it connotes confidence, sexiness, and high intelligence, according to a new survey. The survey questioned 1000 people on how they perceive others based on the colors of their clothes.

The Trailer for Will Smith's Concussion Arrives to Tweak NFL Ahead of Opening Day

The subject of football players and head trauma may sound like the set-up for a joke, but it's anything but a laughing matter. To prove it, the discovery of the brain trauma condition CTE by Dr. Bennet Omalu is making it to the big screen this year, packaged as the drama-thriller Concussion and starring Will Smith.

Leather Pants to Printed Suiting: The MTV VMA Statement Trends Ranked

Normally it's ladies making the splashiest statements on the red carpet, but last night's VMA Awards proved a veritable hotbed for more experimental menswear trends. Distressed denim and loads of leather were two of the most prominent.

Here are the top five looks, ranked from "try it maybe" to "definitely don't." 1.

The 3 Exercises You Need for Sexy Forearms

You know how the saying goes: What does it profit a man if he hath a muscle-bound back but his forearms are puny? Okay, maybe that's not exactly how the saying goes, but you get the idea: A well-developed forearm not only makes working out your entire body easier (deadlifts, anyone?), it gives your whole body a more balanced look. But unlike so many sports-related pursuits, the key to a successful forearm workout is not, in fact, "all in the wrist." "The wrist joint is actually very weak in comparison to the muscles of the forearm," says Joey Gonzalez, celebrity see more

The Undead Rise in Fear the Walking Dead's Second Episode

Here's an interesting question: if the zombie apocalypse started tomorrow, how do you think you'd hear about it? Fear the Walking Dead suggests, wisely, that the news would go viral: at the beginning of tonight's episode it's a video of a corpse getting up and biting the paramedic who declared him dead that makes the rounds of social media, as teens sit glued to their smartphones, gawking in confusion. Of course this is hardly the first time we've seen the rise of the undead from the beginning, and we know, broadly speaking, what to expect: early skepticism, dawning suspicion, too-late see more

Netflix Is Losing The Hunger Games and Transformers at the End of September

If you're a fan of The Hunger Games, Transformers, or World War Z, you better catch them on Netflix in September because come October 1st, they're gone. The reason, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos announced today, is because Netflix will not continue its agreement with the cable network Epix.

Six championships, six NBA Finals MVPs, five regular season MVP awards, 14 All-Star game appearances, the list goes on and on.
