The Reentry: December 19

Minor nuclear weapons power dictator and bouffant hairstyle icon Kim Jong Il has died.

So ronrey, indeed.

If it seems like the 2011 holiday season is endless this time around, that’s because 2011 has blessed/cursed us with five weekends in December, the third of which saw the Iraq War officially come to a close, Christian Bale roughed up by Chinese thugs and, in our opinion, the best Saturday Night Live in over a decade.

Oh, and Playboy’s sales apparently weren’t affected by those leaked naked Lohan pics...»

Foxy Boxing: Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes and, sigh, Karolina Kurkova have been practicing the sweet science at a local gym. We kind of like the fact that they could beat the snot out of us. [Observer]

"Women Love You in Pink Shirts": We have personal, experiential evidence that this is true. [Just a Guy Thing]

Barney and Friends: The appearences of Michel Gondry, Timo and Panama-hat wearing ping-pong champs at Matthew Barney's National Arts Club dinner add up to the first party report that actually made us jealous. [VF Daily]

One Step at a Time: Just like everything else there, shoemaking in Iraq is a study in tragedy and persistence. [IHT]

Neighborhood Watch: How could we have missed this one? Not only has our beloved Style Guy returned from the front with a new report on CBGB's, but he also waxes nostalgic (in his own unsentimental way) about causing a minor riot with his "socialist-realist rock band." Awesome. [GQ]
