Opens today in theaters! The elevator pitch for Obvious Child is startlingly simple: Donna Stern (Jenny Slate), a 20-something comedian nursing a broken heart, has a drunken one-night stand with a stranger, gets knocked up, and has an abortion. The end. But the experience of watching the film is much more than the sum of its parts. Carrying the distinction of being one of the first ever pro-choice comedies, Obvious Child—which was a Sundance favorite—is also kind, brave, and exactly the sort of film you’d...

I’m sure that if you took a peek inside your medicine cabinet, you would find some kind of exfoliator that contains microbeads. Microbeads are, according to NPR, “tiny bits of plastic, [or] small scrubbing components used in hundreds of personal care products like skin exfoliants and soap.” AKA, the little things that scrub off dead skin and gunk out of your pores. Now, the problem is that these little pieces of plastic, known as polyethylene, are “an excellent transporter of phenanthrene, a byproduct of fossil fuel...

  To me, Lifetime is a channel full of made-for-TV movies, Dance Moms and Project Runway. There's always an abundance of over the top drama, usually the kind that melts your brain to the consistency of a grilled cheese sandwich. So what could be worse than some of the things Lifetime already thrusts upon its viewers? A reality series entitled Born in the Wild that promises to deliver (couldn’t resist that pun) a truly innovative take on childbirth.  The show will chronicle, as stated in a network press release, "what happens...

Defining the Black American Woman is not an easy task. She is layered, multifaceted, complicated and her representation tends to spark debate. Since 2002, one photographer has attempted to capture the essence of what it means to be a modern black woman in America through an ever-expanding exhibition of portraits called WOMEN OF A NEW TRIBE.  Jerry Taliaferro's subjects come from a variety of backgrounds, with different ages, professions and socioeconomic standings represented. The project has traveled to several U.S. cities and twice to Europe, much...

I’ll be the first to say it - I’m a Lana Del Rey fan. I have my copy of her album Born to Die. I like her songs for the most part, no matter how cheeseball that makes me.   But in her cover story with Fader magazine, promoting her new album Ultraviolence, Lana has now (infamously) stated that, “the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept…Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not really that interested.”   That just makes me so...
