!! OMG, THAIN KYEW-AH!: Study shows more men speaking in girls’ ‘dialect’ !!

So vocal-fry is a major epidemic here in North America. The ladies are apparently using it to sound “more authoritative and sexy” (DON’T LAUGH!), so it’s no surprise that it’s now spread down to the dudes. It’s also a really great way to show others that you’re polite whilst ordering your Eggnog Latte at Starbucks, but without making any eye-contact with that person serving you. That’s icky! An aptly placed “THAIN KYEWWWW” will do just fine, brah.
According to the findings which were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California:

“We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender,” said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of California who led the research. “We believe that uptalk is becoming more prevalent and systematic in its use for the younger generations in Southern California,” she added.
The team recorded and analysed the voices of 23 native Californians aged between 18 and 22. The researchers were therefore not able to infer similar language patters in older Californians.
She added that “uptalk” had negative connotations which made men less likely to admit to using it, but what was clear was that it was spreading.
“It grates on people, some people think it sounds really ditzy or insecure. This does not accurately come across like that to the native speakers.”

Don’t try to blame Clueless. Don’t even try and come for Valley Girl (it’s been 30 years). This is obviously the work of the dark arts, courtesy of the Kardashian coven!

!! OMG, she’s a pixie: Pamela Anderson reveals new shorter cut on ‘ELLEN’ !!

rs_1024x759-131107061702-1024-ellen-anderson-ellen-jc.jpg
Wow, Pamela Anderson cut off her iconic popcorn-blonde locks! We’re into Pammy‘s new shorter look (decked out in classic Vivienne Westwood on Ellen), and we think she looks supes cute.
It must feel great for her shed that heavy mane after years of whipping it around in nothing but PVC bodysuits while a teamster hoses her down. It shows off her face and makes her look younger and more elegant too! (Ellen is totally digging it — she’s getting Portia vibes from Pam and it’s doing things for her…)
Check out the rest of Pam’s new cut after the jump! What do you think of her new ‘do? Are Pam and Jennifer Lawrence trying to tell us that “Pixies” and “Kate Gosellins” are the new shit?

!! OMG, That 70’s Big Brother?: Underground home built during the Cold War is for sale! !!

Paranoia will destroy ya, but it will almost make you build some major underground glamour! Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson, a wealthy businessman, built this underground family home in Las Vegas in 1978 to withstand a nuclear blast. Apparently, Henderson was convinced that things with the Soviets weren’t going to end well in the Cold War, equipping the house to allow it to be lived in for up to a year without resurfacing.
You enter the house via an elevator camouflaged by clusters of rocks, and won’t miss the outside world at all because according to Messyness Chic:

The “garden” includes a four-hole putting green, a swimming pool, two jacuzzis, a sauna, dance floor, bar, BBQ (camouflaged in a rock) and adjustable light settings for “sunset,” “day,” “dusk” and “night”. The night setting comes complete with twinkling stars.

The house was lost to foreclosure last summer so you can pick it up today for a cool $1.7 million. Check out more photos after the jump.
