I have very thick hair and want to be able to manipulate my hair without it appearing or feeling greasy. Is there anything which is a decent substitute for your own natural oils? I want something extremely subtle. I have tried that Bed Head stuff (too goey and thick), this Kerastase hair wax (makes hair way too shiny and the hold doesn't feel natural), and this Redken stuff which was like a white paste, but it wasn't so grainy. I kind of liked it since it doesn't make...

"Modern," when referring to 1920-60s furniture is now nothing but another form of "period," and one wonders what the original modernists would think about that. I don't imagine they'd look on said ignorance...

Of course, I am biased having been brought up with a heavy dose of modernism, so it is what feels natural and comforting to me. On the other hand, I am no fan of wood kitchens. I think they...

Funny how some apparently non-educated buffoon like me can figure that out and our esteemed performance prodigy...

These square panels everywhere is just so disciplined. There is no character at all with that kind of design, it's so cold and by now, incredibly generic.

What Obama says is quite true, and I think a lot of educated people will agree with him. Unfortunately, he just pissed off a huge amount of the people that he stole from Hillary. Hopefully it will go away, but this was the single most retarded thing he's probably ever done. I hope one of his staffers slapped him.

I usually ride the escalator side-by-side with my wife and people behind think they have the right of way to pass even if there is no space. Seems like they think there is some rule that you are supposed to line up single file and I am the one blocking traffic. If you are in such a hurry, take the damn stairs! umm actually,...

This whole 70s revival isn't going to last long. I can't believe people are into wenge wood and shag carpets again.
