The Transgender Exotica Awards, The Golden Poo, and 12 Other Really Weird Award Ceremonies

Award season has arrived and we're not just referring to the Oscars. The first quarter of the year brings the Director's Guild of America Award (Feb. 7), the BAFTAs (Feb. 8), the Grammys (also on Feb. 8), plus competitions for dozens of other smaller, sillier trophies. So if mainstream media doesn't appeal to youᰬStreep again?—there are always these outlier awards dedicated to interests so niche they border on the ridiculous. Or should we say the sublime? see more

Men Reveal Their "Girly" Habits on Reddit

No better way to kick off the weekend than to hear what a bunch of guys consider their "girliest" habit, right? Well, over on The Front Page of the Internet a user asked that exact question—and the responses started flooding in. A scroll through the answers is both hysterical and illuminating. They range from a penchant for interior design and peeing while in the sitting position, meanwhile others admit to liking to spoon (as the little spoon, no less!) and checking other dudes out ... but in a totally heterosexual way! Hey, if you're ever feeling self-conscious, just remember that see more

Our Favorite Instagram Account of the Week: fashiondads_

Stylish mothers often get more than their fair share of paid dues, but fathers? Not so much. Luckily, a new Instagram account is out to correct this error by praising patriarchal flair. However, as opposed to worshiping at he altar of some of the more well-dressed dads (think: David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Matthew McConaughey, or Jay Z), fashiondads_ has focused its attention on the unsung Everydad who walks among us. The dad who, like the gentleman above, jean cut-offs and (laced!) boat shoes over a Prada suit. The papa who finds protest in the everyday (yet unconventional) uniform. So yes, see more

Ultra-Wealthy Population Hits Record High—Here's What They're Buying

There is the 1% and then there is the 0.004%—individuals whose net wealth is at least $30 million each. And here's a sobering newsflash: They're not just infinitely richer than you are, they're also multiplying. According to the just-published 2014 Wealth-X UBS World Ultra Wealth Report, the globe's richest adults grew by 6% last year. There are now 211,275 of them. So where are they hiding? About a third of the ultra-wealthy live in the U.S. (8,655 in New York City alone). Germany, Japan, the UK and China round out the top five wealthy hangouts and account for an additional see more

New Study Finds You're All Eating Disgusting Food for Thanksgiving

The venerable Gray Lady has done a fun little study, mining Google searches for the oddball dishes that are popular in each state. The results, shown above, are, quite frankly, horrifying. Um, dear South Carolina, what the fuck is pineapple casserole? Turns out, it's cheese and pineapple chunks baked and scattered with buttered bread crumbs. I'm sorry, excuse me while I go violently upchuck for a few moments. And for those of you (myself included) tsk-tsk-ing the South, take a quick gander at Oregon. Vegan mushroom gravy? Shame on you, taking our turkey day and handing it over to meat-hating see more

Are you a Brooklyn resident but feel that your relationship with your neighborhood is so much more? Does your gluten-free heart only really feel at home on the slightly shabby yet ever-so-charming streets of your truly hip borough? Do you wear skinny jeans and scoop-neck tees and fedoras?

If you answered yes to even one of those questions, then this website is for you (and your future business). At its core, see more

How Artists Are Reinventing the Pay Phone, Now That It's Obsolete

This week, New York City announced its plan to replace public pay phones with digital hubs called Links. Starting in 2015, the kiosks will offer free Wi-Fi, phone-charging stations, touchscreens for accessing directions and other services, advertising displays, and yes, free phone calls within the U.S. The disappearance of the pay phone, while inevitable, is also a little sad; it's been part of our streetscape for longer than most of us can remember. And even though smartphones have rendered them almost functionally defunct, over the past few years some New Yorkers have found cool, alternative uses for these outdated public see more
