This week, we’re sitting things out because we don’t know anything about musicals–but Jennifer sure does. Another expert in the field is Flavorpill deputy editor (and longtime Gloss pal) Tyler Coates. In today’s installment of WBD, they’re butting heads on three of the world’s most famous musical cats (no, not piano cat): they’re playing with bad boy Rum Tum Tugger, the magical Mr Mistoffelees and tragic glamour cat Grizabella. Will Tugger’s raw sex appeal prevail? Or magic? This is weird. More
Topic: Wed Bed Dead
This week, Jen sits things out while we play a carb-centric game of WBD with a very special guest: the amazing Ms. Julie Klausner.
Julie was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule–she’s got a brand new book out called Art Girls Are Easy–to come by and discuss the pros and cons of fucking/marrying/and killing some classic carbohydrates: a baguette, a bowl of pasta and a basket of French fries. We managed to avoid any and all jokes about the baguette’s phallic qualities, too! More
This week, we’re playing in honor of Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming glitzy blockbuster, The Great Gatsby (which Jen hated, PS). Today’s trio will therefore be Jay Gatsby (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), Tom Buchanan (played by Joel Edgerton) and Nick Carraway (played by Tobey Maguire). Jen’s dream has always been to marry Gatsby, so the ‘bed’ option is the wild card here. …The one thing everyone is certain about, though, is how hard Daisy sucks. More
This week, we’re playing with a new trio of superheroes (as opposed to that other one)–we’ll be debate the eligibility of Avengers Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (played by Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth). None of them seem like great husbands, so your options are limited to marrying Ironman for his money, Hulk for his disinterest in socializing or Thor… because giant hammers are hilarious. More
This week, we’re discussing a few of the better known Disney princes: Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin from Aladdin and (wwwhhhhhyyy?) Eric from The Little Mermaid. The problems each choice presents are clear: Beast is a giant monster, Eric is a total d-bag and Aladdin wears a vest with nothing underneath. What to do? Will Beast’s enormous library put him ahead of the game? Or will all that erotic tension in Aladdin affect our decision making? More
This week, they’re observing 4/20 (a first for both of them) by playing with famous movie stoners: the Dude (played by Jeff Bridges) from The Big Lewbowski, Jeff Spicoli (played by a pre-serious Sean Penn) from Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Saul Silver (played by James Franco) from Pineapple Express. Though Jennifer’s love of pizza and cookies seem like the obvious decision-making force here, her staunch WASPiness demands she never marry a pothead.
Well, that and her deep hatred for James Franco’s debut story collection, Paolo Alto. More
This week, they’re extremely excited about the release of Jurassic Park 3D, so they’re considering which of its star dinosaurs would make the best husband or the best lay. First off, there’s the T-Rex (kind of the highstrung, testosterone-fueled Wall Street bro of dinosaurs), there’s the velociraptor (the most frightening of dinosaurs) and there’s the brontosaurus… which science would like us to call the apatosaurus, but science can’t hold us down. More
This week, they’re playing a rabbit-centric game of Wed Bed Dead, in honor of the Easter Bunny. They’ll be mulling their romantic options with a cast of famous rabbits–Harvey (Jimmy Stewart‘s alcoholism-induced hallucination from Harvey), the perennially hopeless Trix Rabbit, and beloved/tragic childhood figure, the Velveteen Rabbit. Ahead, they discuss whether or not the Trix Rabbit is unforgivably incompetent and Jen figures she could tough out scarlet fever. More
This week, they’re playing a Stephenie Meyer-inspired game of Wed Bed Dead, in honor of Friday’s opening of The Host .
…Jennifer, apparently has read The Host! More
This week, they’re playing with some iconic comic book superheros: Batman, Superman and Spider Man. Ahead, they wonder if Alfred has any unsavory habits Batman doesn’t know about, consider killing Superman because he was so mean to Lex Luther and question the substance of Spidey’s photojournalism skills. More
This week, in honor of* the upcoming Oz the Great And Powerful, they’re discussing the famously bereft trio that accompanies Dorothy on her journey to Oz: the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. Oh, but “It’s weird to fuck lions!” you may be saying under you breath?
Well. That’s very decent of you. You are way ahead of the game. More
This week: Wall Street‘s Gordon Gekko, American Psycho‘s Patrick Bateman and Fifty Shades of Grey‘s Christian Grey.
Hello there, Gloss fans! Welcome to this week’s episode of our our excellent web series Wed Bed Dead, in which editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff must decide the potentially very sexy fate of three chosen gentlemen (and occasionally ladies). The show is a live action spin-off of their longrunning … More
This week, they’re honoring the much-maligned date of February 14th–otherwise known as Valentine’s Day–with a very special episode of Wed Bed Dead: romantic leads. More
