Kirsten Dunst is low-key and lovely in REM’s last vid

Since I watched Melancholia last week, I’ve become a bit enchanted with Kirsten Dunst and her laid-back low-key California girl look again. Here she is in REM’s just-released video for We All Go Back To Where We Belong.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen get us all in the Halloween spirit!

The heatwave that’s taken over October so far has ruined that Halloween-y kind of feeling  that usually sets in during autumn. Help is at hand, though! This video from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (promoting StyleMint with a discount code) has got me in the All Hallow’s Eve spirit. Almost as much as my annual viewing of Hocus Pocus will. Check out the video under the jump and answer all the questions right (or do as I did and just click on them randomly until you move to the next one), and you get treated to the twins looking fab as Catwoman and Batman (looking forward to The Dark Knight Rises?), a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader, and more!

Now I see why they’re always carrying coffee…

Watch the video under the cut!

Happy Birthday, Alicia Silverstone! (I always wanted your hair)

Oh, Alicia Silverstone. I was 11ish was Clueless came out and I wanted to be you when I eventually saw it. Or possibly Cher Horowitz, judging by the way “As if!” and various other ridiculous catchphrases became a part of my tweenage to teenage lexicon. At the time, I didn’t know you’d been in an Aerosmith video with Stephen Dorff (swoon). But I also eventually rented that terrible movie Excess Baggage because you were in it. And weren’t you in a film with Mark Wahlberg too? Back when he was Marky Mark and still had his Funky Bunch? Let’s not go into the whole Batgirl thing right now. You kissed Paul Rudd! Back before he was Paul Rudd. And in semi-incestual circumstances if we look into the storyline too closely, so let’s not. What else have you been in? Oh yeah, I’m afraid I didn’t really like your TV show Miss Match, we were… mismatched. And now? Now you have a handsome-despite-the-headband husband and a gorgeous son named Bear. (I ignore all the stuff about the veganism though, sorry, I just like bacon sandwiches a little bit too much.) Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!

PS. THIS is why I wanted your hair (I’ve never achieved it).
