In the 1920s and 30s, the twins Violet and Daisy Hilton were as close to being vaudeville royalty as any two people could get.  They were talented performers: they could sing and dance, they played any number of musical instruments, they were witty and charming and crowds of fans flocked to their shows every night.  They also had one other appealing factor: a small piece of flesh on their backs that had conjoined the sisters since the day they were born.  Growing up with such a...

Super-Mom/action figure designer duo Julie Kerwin and Dawn Nadeau saw a problem: the hyper-sexualized asses, the enormous breasts, and the impossibly tiny waists of female action figures.  “There are female action figures,” Nadeau explains, “but they’re designed for the adult male collector population,” explains Nadeau.  Children’s toys should celebrate more than just a woman’s body!  (Particularly if by “celebrate” we mean “hold up as a sex-object.”)   So Nadeau and Kerwin took a long-needed step: they created IAmElemental, a line of 7 female action figures.  Each figure...

Redemption Trail is a story that unfolds slowly with a certain inevitability; set on a rural vineyard in Oakland, it doesn’t seem like the world exists outside the fences of the warm, summery fields. Whatever happens within this world is fated to happen. Written and directed by Britta Sjogren, the movie focuses on two women that force each other to face their demons while forgiving themselves in the process. Tess (Lisa Gay Hamilton) lives hermetically on her employer’s vineyard; seemingly afraid of nothing, she lives within...

Some say that Lizzo is the greatest word-play rapper since the heyday of hip-hop. The Houston-bred, Minneapolis-based emcee is taking the world by storm with her clever raps and impeccable flow. After the release of LIZZOBANGERS (on label Totally Gross National Product) in 2013, she has been releasing music videos and getting ready for some live performances (she’s performing at Glastonbury among other festivals and shows). She just released some more U.S. tour dates with Clean Bandit as they collaborated on a song together – New Eyes,...

800 four-year colleges and universities are “test-optional” meaning that submitting SAT or ACT tests as part of the application is not a requirement. However, students applying to more selective schools will almost always submit, and these schools will almost always look at the scores to influence their admissions decision. Last week, Hampshire College in Amherst, MA announced that it will now implement a “test-blind” policy. It will no longer even look at tests to determine admission or financial aid decisions. This is a similar to concept...
