I know what you are thinking.  Why the heck haven’t you done this before?  I don’t have an answer for that, so just relax.  We are doing it now and if you’re lucky we will do it again next year.  There is so much Oscar buzz out there right now I can hardly contain myself.  Just kidding, most of it is stupid and boring.  So we’ve decided to create this super unboring and unstupid Oscar Preview.  FINALLY RIGHT?! You are welcome!

Best sound editing: Obviously goes to whoever made this video (he MUST be nominated, we would be shocked if he wasn’t)

Best Actor in a Leading Role: Rob Ford – His leading role as Mayor of Toronto has definitely been a performance to talk about! But what has really impressed the Academy is the physical transformation he went through to look the part.  Here’s a before and after picture of him.

Documentary Feature: This documentary about a goat eating dinner wins for so many reasons;  mainly because it really, really makes you think.

Biggest Oscar Snub: Smurfs 2.  We know why this didn’t get nominated. Bottom line: the Academy is filled with a bunch of racists.

Most shocking nomination: Dallas Buyers Club.  Why?  We know it’s a great movie.  It’s just the Academy is usually very snobby when it comes to nominating sequels.  I mean, hello, Smurfs 2 wasn’t nominated.  So we were just surprised that the sequel to Ghosts of Girlfriends Past was.

Best picture:  Again an obvious winner here … This picture of a squirrel waiting for a bus! gardensquirrelhandbag-wallpaper

Most likely to have a nip-slip:  Ellen DeGeneres

Most likely to get really thin before Oscars and then gain the weight back before the end of the night: Jonah Hill

Jonah Hill skinny and fat

Most like to storm the stage and pull a Kanyé West:  Tom Hanks – seriously, that guy is a ticking time bomb.

Tom-HanksMost likely to be dealing out Quaaludes on the red carpet:  Leonardo Dicaprio

You are welcome.  In advance.  You are going to read this post and then bake me some damn good cookies.   (chocolate chip with skor bits would be ideal).  Have you ever thought to yourself, jeepers this latte from starbucks is expensive… I could probably be doing something so much better with my money?  Well now, I can assure you that 5 dollars can pretty much get you anything you want.  Anything.  Maybe not a hooker…atleast not legally (yet).  Are you a struggling artist that needs a song written for you?  BOOM five dollars, it’s yours.  Are you a struggling parent in desperate need of a creepy guy wishing your child a happy birthday?  BOOM five dollars it’s yours. Have you ever wanted someone to write a specific message on a plate using only ketchup and mustard?  I sure have.  BOOM it’s yours for only 5 dollars!  Seriously this site (Fiverr.com) is probably the best thing to come to in the interweb since Designchicks. Check it out, I guarantee you will waste a lot of time.  Laura and I are going to check into it further.  We will let you know when we make our first purchase.


  Recently Justin Bieber has been in the news for allegedly  getting a littly fisty with a paparazzi.  We immediately called Justin to see what the scoop was. He told us via Skype that the press has got it all wrong.  They said he was leaving the movie theater with girlfriend Selena Gomez.  Dead wrong. Justin tells us he was actually just at the gym where he works out and he was with his trainer and mentor, Dana White..who just happened to be wearing a long brown wig and dress,  similar to Gomez’ style.  Justin tells us that he has been secretively training to become a UFC fighter.  We didn’t believe it at first so we contacted his agent who put us in touch with Dana White.  We talked to Dana via telephone.  He told us that Justin is one of the most promising young fighters he’s ever seen.  He believes that even though he’s only had 3 weeks of training he will be able to beat any fighter that gets sent his way and that he will be added to the next UFC lineup.  Dana says he believes he is so talented at fighting because he has had to fight off all d’em pre teen bitches for the last few years.

In conclusion, Justin didn’t punch a paparazzi.  He actually punched his sprawl partner. Who  cried like a little baby and decided to make up an elaborate story and sue Justin for a his donero.

Don’t believe us?  LOok at the picture. Clearly a UFC publicity photo.


Did you know that the reason Vampires are popular right now is because there is a chemical imbalance in the world every 6 to 12 to 52 years.  It causes surges in Vampire popular culture.  This is scientifically proven.  Ask anyone.    Did you know that the same can be said about Babysitters?  I know what your thinking…what the grill, babysitters don’t suck blood.  Babysitters aren’t always unusually pale.   I know this, trust me.  I used to babysit and I have a rather lovely olive complexion.  But, every few years or so there is a surge in the popularity of Babysitters in pop culture. 2012 is set to be the highest babysitting popularity year ever.  Watch out for it!  Check out this trailer for The Sitter featuring Jonah Hill (before he got skinny so you know it will be good)

I saw this trailer and I immediately thought of one of my favourite movies from the late 80’s – Adventures in Babysitting.

I’m sure watching the trailer made you think of all the amazing babysitting movies out there.  See?  You are getting all surged up ready for the year of Babysitting in pop culture.  Design Chicks said it first!


Okay…listen up “Urban Noize”, first of all, I don’t appreciate your inclusion of a “Z” in a perfectly fine word just because it looks urban. Secondly, who the HELL do you think you ARE?! You think you can take three of the greatest artists of the 21st century and mix them in your basement, release it, and think people will eat it up? well they will, and those people are really really DUMB. You know what, I’m not mad at you Urban Noize, no, Im mad at the audience today, what they desire, what they have become. No appreciation for REAL music anymore, just Dubstep and reworked versions of music’s past. Urban Noize, even though you claim this is not an official release but rather a dedication to all three artists, it doesn’t get you off the hook. I see people on youtube who fart in front of their computer and get famous, this is NO different. You have just farted in front of me, Urban Noize, and the rest of society, and while I sit by and plug my nose, others are basking in its warmth. So bask everyone, but like a fart, Urban’s “Noize” will gradually fade, leaving it to REAL artists to clear the air. BOOYA!
How did you feel about the album, Robin?

Hey Laura. Are you feeling slightly bloated today?  Do you need to take a midol?  Don’t get your knickers in a knot.  Some people fart out blog posts.  Well most people don’t.  Laura just farted on the keyboard and that gawd awful post appeared.  Seriously Laura, the album (while not the best collaboration I’ve ever heard) is actually pretty good.  You just need to open your mind and close your fart hole.    I think if you listened to this album before you’d ever listened to anything by Adele, Kanye or Jay Z..you’d be like alright, alright, great album.  But as you said before these are 3 of the greatest artist of the 21st century, so it’s hard to not expect the most epic, mind blowing, panties on fire, best album ever.  I understand your panties are not on fire, but that doesn’t mean it’s not decent music.  Ya, that’s right, I called it music.   There is so much awful, ear aching music out there that when someone remixes something, from a song or album that is already amazing, it is obviously going to better than half of the crap you hear on the radio today.  I’m talking directly to you Chad Kroeger.  You are crap and you should cut your hair.  Hippie.  Hey Laura remember when we interviewed Chad Kroeger?  Read it here.

You can listen to the album here.  Then tell us what you think!


As you all know, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been dating for a very long time (9 1/2 months and 13 hours and 27 minutes to be exact). Last month Justin spotted Selena canoodling with her Monte Carlo costar Cory Monteith (the dude from Glee). Well didn’t Bieber get into quite the fever..he began questioning Selena’s loyalty to him, he cried, she cried, it was a mess! Anyways, the next morning (sources say) Selena took off. She returned later that evening distraught, intoxicated and sporting new body art. A full arm sleeve tattoo of her true love, Justin Bieber. She has since told sources that it was a gesture to prove her commitment to the baby-faced buck, Bieber.
