- Matthew McConaughey released a t-shirt to commemorate his Oscar win. The slogan: “Alright, alright, alright.” The shirts are part of McConaughey’s JKL menswear line (did you know he had one of those?), but looks like they’re all sold out already at Dillards. Sigh. [E! Online]
- Forget Birchbox’s beauty samples. There’s now the Cocksman Club, a startup that’s a subscription-based condom delivery service. Hm. [Betabeat]
- The latest in nail art? Cuticle tattoos. (And they’re actually pretty awesome.) [Style]

At 10:06 p.m., Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted this photo with Jenkintown’s Bradley Cooper (and a bunch of other really famous people). Within one hour, it had over 1 million retweets and broke the previous retweet record, set by President Obama after his re-election. It also broke Twitter, temporarily.
