The Goops they lick their fingers
And the Goops they lick their knives:
They spill their froth on the tablecloth
Oh, they lead disgusting lives!
The Goops they talk while eating,
And loud and fast they chew;
And that is why I'm glad that I
Am not a Goop, are you?

we needed a rolling goop thread, good work!

GP wanted a place to organize her unbiased travel recommendations

I can't parse the idea of an unbiased recommendation.

four months pass...

Gwyneth Paltrow claimed she made yoga popular: "I went to do a yoga class in L.A. recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, 'Have you ever done yoga before?' ... and I was like, 'You have this job because I've done yoga before.'" https://t.co/S5iGCJwPDf pic.twitter.com/dnIUwKL3vL

aleister crowley invented yoga

Οὖτις, Friday, 7 December 2018 18:38 (one year ago) link

also originated the role of pepper potts iirc

Though its ultimate origins are not certain, one of the earliest known descriptions of yoga practice is found in the Guwynnathpaltara Upanishad, in particular the philosophy called gūpyoga.

but what year of goop was that, though

Karl Malone, Friday, 7 December 2018 19:04 (one year ago) link

show me a year when goop wasn't there, and i will show you a crystal that will reveal the truth, only $14.99 for the first, or all three unity stones for $32.99

Gwyneth Paltrow has plenty of unique items available via her Goop online shop, including a candle with a very unconventional scent.

The “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle is on sale now for $75, with the product description breaking down how the votive came to be.

“This candle started as a joke between perfumer Douglas Little and GP,” reads the website. “The two were working on a fragrance, and she blurted out, “Uhhh..this smells like a vagina” — but evolved into a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent. (That turned out to be perfect as a candle).”

Scent notes include geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed.

The candle is currently sold out, but is expected to be re-stocked. Curious consumers can currently add their name to a waitlist to be the first to know when “This Smells Like My Vagina” will hit the digital shelves once again.

I have no issue with this, tbh. I mean, the name could be more concise and witty, but the concept is kind of funny and it doesn't seem to be fraudulently claiming any health benefits.

Although $75 for a candle, that's fucked up, I admit.
