We’ll be back — The Gingerales (we totally came up with that by ourselves without being influenced by anything else, like say, a movie about a robot sent from the future to kill.)

Hey Anonymous (aka deborahmeliaKK121372) it’s seems very spammy to send a message asking us to yahoo message you. So, needless to say, we wont be doing that. Okay? okay.
Hooowwl-oween: The Best (Cutest) Costumes From The Doggy Halloween Parade
We love dogs. We love cute dogs. These are two incontrovertible facts. So you just know we’re going a bit insane over these photo’s from 21st annual Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade here in New York City. What can be cuter than dogs forcibly put into adorable Halloween costumes and made to walk in a parade?
In no particular order, here are the ones we thought were the cutest of the pack. and we grade them from 1-10 on our patented (actually patent pending) Cute-O-Meter.
Look at that poor thing. He looks like he’s having the shittiest time. On the cute-o-meter though this is a solid 5. but for the clever A-train/Rat combo, we’re gonna boost that up to an 8.
Come on. This is a 9 - Bumble bee anything always scores high on the cute-o-meter. Look at his little face. Don’t you just want to call him your little schmoopy schmoopy?
If this Occupy Wall St. dog doesn’t occupy your heart, you have no heart. Extra points for the little Ipad on his shoulder. No self respecting fiscal protester would be caught dead with out his I-Whatever. 9 on the Cute-O-Meter.
Apparently this was suppose to be a Rastafarian doggie but it looks like they couldn’t get the little guy to wear his locks so we have to take some points off. 7!
Umm, Raptor Doggy, nuff said. 10 on the Cute-O-Meter. Wait, not nuff said, do you see how his little noggin looks like it’s being eaten by the raptor? Do you see!?! okay, now nuff said.
LockOut: Unemployed NBA Stars Now Want To Invade Hollywood
If you’ve been living under a rock then you probably haven’t heard that the current NBA season is in danger of being canceled, due to a financial dispute between the billionaire team owners and the millionaire basketball players
they own that play for them. For now, it looks like the lockout will only take out the pre-season (and who really needed that long ass pre-season anyway?) but that still leaves many super rich athletes, super unemployed (damn you economy!).
We know what you’re thinking “Om my god what are these multi-millionaires (get it, they’re rich!) who get paid a disgusting amount of money to play a game going to do!?!” That wasn’t what you were thinking? Damn, you heartless yo!
But seriously, the answer is Hollywood, They’re going to Hollywood. Amare Stoudemire, New York Knicks, is making the rounds out in tinsel town (do people still call it that?) pitching a half-hour scripted comedy (we’re guessing it’s going to be about basketball and uh..a lock out), Meanwhile, Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant is shooting “Switch” a body switch comedy where he plays himself opposite Brandon T. Jackson, a fan who “magically” gets his skills.
And a few others, like Philadelphia 76ers forward Elton Brand and Cleveland Cavaliers Baron Davis, are just fronting production companies (which we can’t really be down on). Brand is president of Gibraltar Films, which produced Werner Herzog’s 2007 drama Rescue Dawn and Davis co-founded Verso Entertainment, which produced 2008 documentary Crips and Bloods: Made in America.
So there you have it, since they can’t play basketball for living, these b-ball players (now we know people still say that!) are going to be Hollywood big-shots. That’s a good thing because we would hate to see these guys applying to food-stamps like so many many lazy none athletes.
Stranger Than (Horror) Fiction: Brazilian Doctors Convicted For Organ Harvesting.
You know all those urban legends about people who get their organs harvested while abroad in some strange foreign (Read: Dem don’t speak English) country? Well, it’s like totally real, almost. Well, at least the part about people selling organs on the black market is.
In Brazil, the big culo capital of the world, three doctors were recently convicted of killing their patience so their kidneys could be sold to “expensive private clinics”.
One of the deadly docs was identified as a neurosurgeon who declared a patient brain dead, then proceeded to divvy up the organs for sale. The other two were convicted because they removed the organs before the patient was dead, which basically killed them?
We’re guessing these guys didn’t really follow that whole “Hippocratic oath” thing too seriously. They’ll have plenty of time to study it though as each one of them received a sentence of 17 Years and 6 months in prison
Fashion Snapshot: Angela Simmons Shows Us Her Pumpkins.
You know this chick. She’s the daughter of Rev Run from Run D.M.C & Runs House. Her tights aren’t exactly super fashiony, but look at those buns - nuff said. She was apparently out picking pumpkins out in California at “Mr. Bones pumpkin” but really all she had to do was look behind her - Ow!
Girl Problem: Does Wearing Make-up Make women More Successful At Work?
Hey, Ladies, Have you ever wondered why nobody at work seems to trust you? Or why they all think you’re barely competent enough to change the coffee filter? It maybe because you spend a disturbingly large amount of the work day recapping last nights episode of basketball wives or it could be that you come to work everyday with not an ounce of make-up on your face?
A new study coming out of Boston university recently, says that a little makeup can go a long way for women in the work place. It can make you feel confident and give others a feeling that you’re capable, reliable and amiable.
Now some of you plain Jane anti-makeup chix out there are probably already outraged by the mere thought of something so “artificial” determining how your job performance is viewed. Before you dismiss these findings as just another instance of society’s dumb focus on superficial nonsense, think about it. Wearing makeup is just like dressing up. It’s another part of your wardrobe.
The study goes on to say however, that packing on a ton of the magic stuff gives off the opposite effect of that aforementioned beauty halo. Which can make your trust level decrease.
So it basically comes down to treating how you wear makeup the same way you choose what to wear. That cute sparkly top you got from forever 21 would look totally out of place in you depressing cubicle but a nice cardigan might fit right in. Get the picture?
Just so you know, this study was sponsored by Procter & Gamble, which owns CoverGirl cosmetics so take it all with a grain of salt. Do what ever you want. Wear make-up, don’t wear make-up, wear too much of it, either way if you start talking about Basketball wives in the break room we’ll have to fire you for incompetents.
Fashion Snapshot: First Lady Michelle Obama Stuns At South Korean Presidents Dinner.
For reasons that should be clearly evident we’re, completely in love with first lady Michell Obama. But if you would like one anyway, just take a look at our illustrious Lady O in this stunning plum one-shouldered jersey dress by the Korean-American designer Doo-ri Chung.
Whenever the White House hosts important foreign dignitaries, the first lady typically picks an American designer with a cultural and ethnic background related to that of the visitors country. Just as she did with Naeem Khan, a designer with Indian roots who is based in America, when the prime minister of India visited Washington back in November of 2009.
Michelle is so beautiful, you don’t even notice President Obama who was hosting South Korean president Lee Myung-Bak. The two heads of state were there to hammer out some sort of trade agreement between their countries that would bring jobs and blah, blah, blahbitty, can we just stare at Michelle?
Interviewed by the NYTimes Style blog, Chung said,
“Purple is the color of royalty, and she wears it beautifully.”

Chill MuthaF**ka: Samuel L. Jackson is here to make twitter a little cooler.
Sam Jackson has only been tweeting for less than a day and already he’s proven himself to be just as cool in 147 characters as he is on film.
He started his twitter voyage by sending out some pic’s from the ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ dressing room. Okay, so it’s not exactly the most illuminating Twitter but it’s Sam Jackson! He’s bound to put us on to some crazy shit in the future.
Speaking of the future, Jackson is set to start filming his role in the new Quentin Tarantino film “Django Unchained” next month. The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Kurt Russell. And we can only hope that he tweets out a bunch of goodies from the set.
So go ahead and follow this MuthaF**ka [@SamuelLJackson]
