Heck yes. According to People, last night at a post-Oscars party, Betty White confirmed what millions on the internet had been speculating about: she will appear on Saturday Night Live sometime in the near future. Though she didn't specify a date (and Lorne Michaels, the show's executive producer, already dismissed claims that she'd be co-hosting a special "Women of Comedy" episode) and it isn't clear if she'll be actually hosting, this is certainly awesome. Aside ... Read More
  Does Riot Grrrl still exist? Has it evolved? It's clear that the movement has had an influence on tons of musicians, zinesters, and grassroots organizers since it began, but just how much of an influence has it had?

My feminist organization hands out condoms (just the regular Durex ones) all the time on campus and one time we ran out and had to send someone on a condom run to get more.  Well, in the meantime some generous soul saw our predicament and whipped 12 Magnums out of his backpack and donated it to our cause.  (Why did he have 12 Magnums in his backpack on Monday morning on campus at 10am?  No one will ever know but it gives a new meaning to being ...

While last night was certainly an excellent night for women in film,  the Academy seems to have forgotten two great actresses from their memorial montage: Bea Arthur and Farrah Fawcett, who both passed away in 2009. According to Leslie Unger, spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences: ''Every year it's an unfortunate reality that we can't include everybody.'' Oh. So they couldn’t extend the montage by what would have probably ... Read More

San Francisco musician Rykarda Parasol describes her music as rock noir, a sound that evokes film noir mixed with such heavies as the Velvet Underground, Nico, and Leonard Cohen. Younger folks might draw Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, and Mark Lanegan comparisons, as Parasol employs a similarly low vocal range to deliver her torrid tales, but she creates her own otherworldly atmosphere by accompanying herself on guitar and piano. On “My Spirit Lives in ... Read More
