Is "Uptown Funk" the Most Stylish Music Video of the Year?

Music producer Mark Ronson may be best well known for creating impossibly catchy aural landscapes, but it's hard to ignore the fact that he's a damn snazzy dresser too. Now he's teamed up with Bruno Mars on a funk-heavy new single aptly called "Uptown Funk". Because Mars is also known for his sense of sartorial flair, the video for the song is expectedly stylish, as you can see above. If that doesn't perk you up, just know that tomorrow is Friday. see more

A New Photo Series Captures Barbers in Their Shops

Too often, guys spend their time at the barbershop with their noses buried in a magazine, or squinting at themselves in the mirror.

Barbershops have come a long way since then—here you'll see Details-approved favorites like Fellow Barber, The Blind Barber, Persons see more

Three Grandmothers Smoking Weed for the First Time Is the Only Thing You Need to Watch Today

This video is pretty self-explanatory, but it's also just wonderful. These three women of a certain age allow film crews to capture their first pot-smoking adventure, and oh, what a glorious thing it is. While their first time stoned will bring you much joy, the best moment is when they're asked why they haven't indulged before. "I was a suburban housewife, and we had our cigarettes and our cocktails and we were happy," Ms. Purple Scarf says. Turns out, her life was already pretty vice-filled before she met Mary Jane. Anyway, enjoy the video above ... and there is see more

Wine Swirling: Snobby Affectation or Necessary Ritual?

For some oenophiles, opening a bottle of wine is one swift pull of the corkscrew, followed by a quick pour and an immediate flooding of the senses.

Then, and only then, does the glass engage with lips to sip. In other see more

What Is Spatchcocking, and Should You Do It This Thanksgiving?

Besides being a cool word to say, spatchcocking is an actual culinary technique. To spatchcock is to cut out the backbone of your bird and splay it open so you get a flat fowl. In other words, it's a fancy way of saying "butterfly." The benefits of the method are myriad: For starters, says Oliver Ridgeway, executive chef at Sacramento's Grange, "spatchcocking allows you to cook a whole bird a lot faster than any other way. By cutting out the spine, the breasts, legs, and thighs lie flat against your heat source." In other words, expect to halve your cooking see more
