I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve been reading a lot about breasts lately. Not only does public breastfeeding cause an uproar, but resources to help these women are being thrown under the bus too! And seemingly, West 70th, between Broadway and Columbus, the Upper Breast Side, can be considered a mecca for breastfeeding mothers. Owner, Felina Rakowski-Gallagher opened in hopes of providing a space for women that would make breastfeeding easier ... Read More

RYAT Releases Avant Gold

BY Janelle in Music

RYAT is a sonic blend of two parts. The first, being Christina McGeehan, the vocalist who could charm the pants off a guard at Buckingham Palace with her soothing vocals and manipulations of sound. The other, Tim Conley, plays part-time producer (and full-time boyfriend to McGeehan) as he carefully crafts plush soundscapes to compliment his lady’s soft lyrics. 2009’s aptly titled Street Noise Orkestra existed as just that, where common sounds meshed ...

We’ve been honked, whistled, and leered at. We can attempt to escape the heat by wearing tank tops and shorts, but we can hardly escape the harassment that we face every day on the streets. It is often dismissed as an inevitable annoyance, or maybe even seen as a compliment, but street harassment is one the most pervasive forms of gender-based violence and one that is least legislated against. March 20th, the first day of spring, is International Anti-Street ... Read More

Review: Jane Eyre

BY Emily Rems in Arts

No matter how many screen adaptations are made of Charlotte Brontë’s mysteriously romantic 1847 novel Jane Eyre (and there have been a lot) it’s always fascinating to see each new director’s take on this intriguing tale. Cary Joji Fukunaga helms the latest incarnation—out in NY and LA March 11 from Focus Features—and his choice of Alice in Wonderland’s young-yet-wizened Mia Wasikowska as the titular heroine was a decision I ...

A news story has been making the rounds about an 11-year-old girl who was gang-raped by a group of males in a small town in Texas. Eighteen young men and boys have been arrested in connection with the case, which would seem like justice is starting to be served, but The New York Times has begun to go ahead and undermine it! An article by James C. McKinley Jr., posted yesterday on the NYT's website, includes such choice quotes like "These boys have to live with this ... Read More

Not only does the Midwest usually gets a bad rep when it comes to style, but there also seems to be a shortage of really good men's blogs lately. Enter The Midwestyle. The name is catchy, the photos are great, and, of course, the boys are cute. Their style veers somewhere in the realm of classically preppy lumberjack (is that a thing?) with a penchant for mixing vintage and designer with overall good deals. Their vision is “To show that men in the Midwest ... Read More
The other night I watched the 1999 rave-culture flick Go, featuring Sarah Polley and Katie Holmes.  In it, a group of 90’s slackers and their crazy Christmas Eve party. There’s car chases, drug deals gone bad, angry strippers, and a lot of dated fashion (modrobes anyone?). What really fascinated me, though, was not the penchant for goggles but the lack of cell phones and texting. People go missing for hours and their friends just have to wait ... Read More
