Esquire’s “Eat Like a Man” Book Out Now

by Accidental Bear

What does it actually mean to eat like man. Chew loud and aggressively? Eat like a pig? Eat a pig? We could tear this title apart and psycho-analyze it like no other, but I’m not in the mood. I like to take things for face value at times, like food with smart and creative recipes. Esquire’s food writers usually do a fine job keeping thing simple, for the simple man to follow. With 6 billion cooking shows on TV these days, it has become okay for men to get “frilly” in the kitchen and use words that are more than one syllable without feeling emasculated. Thank god (Satan, Buddha, Allah or whom ever).

PSA: Don’t Text and Drive You Asshole (there is no nice way to say that)

by Accidental Bear

PSA of the Day: YouTuber Sean Symons says he spotted a teenager who was texting while driving and reported him to the police. He then whipped out his camera and pursued his car for a while as the teen continued to text unmindful of his surroundings, with lamentably predictable results.

Don’t text and drive. (Also: Don’t film and drive.)

Gay Doesn’t Get More Mainstream Than Old Navy

by Accidental Bear

Good job Old Navy and the devil on my shoulder says, “Way to make a buck!” I hope this doesn’t turn any young impressionable kids gay (joke). ~AB

A line of gay pride t-shirts will be on sale from the clothing company Old Navy, with a portion of the proceeds going to the “It Gets Better” project.

The shirts, available in sizes for for men, women, and babies, will be sold in some stores during June and retail for between $7.50-$14.50 USD. Ten percent of the proceeds will go toward Dan Savage’s campaign, which has made waves in terms of visibility and gay culture in recent months.

According to Moxiebird.com, Old Navy is the first major chain retailer to release such a shirt. Several high-end designers like Kenneth Cole and Marc Jacobs have released limited-edition shirts supporting gay rights and visibility. American Apparel, however, worked with the Human Rights Campaign to disseminate their “Legalize Gay” shirts.

Double Helix by Franco Castelluccio (ART)

by Accidental Bear

Sculptor Franco Castellucio confronts science and art in his latest work, “The Double Helix XX-XY.” The work images an animated strain of DNA, with sinuous male and female bodies twisting to the top. Castellucio also twists the notion of “survival of the fittest,” his desire being that people confront, in his work, the notion of enduring compassion.

The sculpture is accompanied by a new book, Double Helix.

by Accidental Bear

The vast majority of countries around the world have become more accepting of homosexuality, with the exception of Russia and other former socialist countries, a new study has found.
The report, compiled by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, examined general trends in over 30 countries regarding their attitudes towards homosexuality, and is based on five surveys conducted in different countries between 1988 and 2008.
Approval of homosexuality increased in 27 countries and decreased in only four: Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Latvia and Russia, the study noted.
The growth in approval ratings was stronger than the decline.
The study rated the top five most tolerant countries regarding homosexuality as the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, and Belgium, according to the survey. The bottom half of the list consisted of seven ex-socialist states, East Asian nations, Latin American countries and Cyprus, South Africa, and Turkey. READ MORE

Oakland Makes ‘Top 10 Dangerous Cities’ List; I’m So Proud?

by Accidental Bear

It’s seems strange that a city that contains Fairy Land that they also has the tenth-highest rate of rape, the ninth-highest murder rate, and the second highest robbery rate in the country.On a lighter note, violent crime in California overall plummeted to a 44-year low.

Oakland’s violent crime dropped about 5.5% between 2009 and 2010, from about 6,800 to 6,260. The city nevertheless has the tenth-highest rate of rape, the ninth-highest murder rate, and the second highest robbery rate in the country. In 2010, there were 7.12 robberies for every 1,000 Oakland residents. According to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle, Mayor Jean Quan has attempted to combat break-ins and theft by creating programs to keep potential wrongdoers off the streets by starting late-night basketball programs. It it unclear if these policies have worked.
