This web intern has a serious pet peeve - technology marketed to women. So imagine my dismay at Dell's new site, Della. Of course, given the quality of the last two computers I had before I switched to Mac, I don't expect a whole lot from them. But seriously, marketing a new line of pretty pink laptops as eBook readers/diet monitors? Vomit. I don't want my computer to be pink - especially at the expense of function. I don't need cutesy little models to hold ... Read More
The BUST Spring Fling Craftacular is in the Village Voice this week! And it's complete with that super-sexy picture of our very own Callie Watts BUSTing a move at last year's gig. Here's what the Voice said: ''BUST magazine's DIY shopping and party extravaganza is going country this time with their Spring Fling Craftacular 2009. Please be advised that this isn't your average flea of local vendor booths. You're asked to come dressed in your best gardening outfit, ... Read More
In case actually going to high school every day wasn't painful enough, one freshman has cruel taunting permanently printed in her yearbook. In a collage on one page, there is a photo in which the words ''fat ass'' are written right below Marie Gray's name. She's not alone, someone wrote ''faggot'' under another student's name. When Marie complained to the yearbook advisor she was told nothing could be done. The girl's mother said nobody at the school was ... Read More
I just saw a totally charming little musical that should be required viewing for NYC BUSTies and their besties! Written and performed by super-talented real-life BFFs Melanie Adelman and Ellie Dvorkin , MEL AND EL: SHOW AND TELL grabbed me by the ovaries the minute I walked into the Ars Nova theater . The shows' scenic design consists of a Barbie-pink room decorated with tons of amazing '80s ephemera representing the era when the pair met at age 12. As I gawked ... Read More
This video totally made me wanna climb the wall... in a good way. Some of the comments suck, but such is the way of the Internets. (Via The Illusionists ... Read More
Do we have a prom theme going today? A group of high school students in Arcadia, CA, got misogynistic songs banned from their prom. They aren't eliminating all the current pop hits, nor are they lobbying for Jonas Brothers or other G-rated music groups, but are banning songs that refer women as 'ho's' or 'bitches'. Madeline Conrique and members of the Women's Health and Issues Club were able to get a petition signed at the school garnering 130 signatures and ... Read More
Could you go a week without driving? A BlogHer post has issued a challenge: go one week without using your car. I know what the immediate reaction will be ''sure, New Yorker, easy for you to say!'' And it's true, living in Brooklyn and working in Manhattan, it's a whole lot easier for me to go carless than for most people. But give it a shot. Try some alternatives. Walk! It's a good form of exercise, so you're helping the environment and your health. You ... Read More
