Neuroses and dark desires flood A Friend of the Family, Lauren Grodstein's story of a man's midlife crisis and the wreckage that follows.
this is the reason youtube was invented. just so that this video could be shared around the world.
Usually we don't have anything good to say about traditional lady mags (or for that matter, Fox News), but this month, Glamour's finally on to something -- plus-size models! Plus-size really meaning 'normal-size,' 'healthy-looking,' and 'totally beautiful.' Glamour's November issue, out on Tuesday, will feature a photo shoot with plus-size models Kate Dillon, Crystal Renn, and Lizzie Miller, and in honor of the occasion, Fox News has compiled a slideshow of several plus-size models looking just as fly as 'regular-size' models.
Okay, you may feel she is a little overstated at times but the fact remains true that she does more to change the lives of women than most celebrities. Yesterday, Oprah dedicated her hour-long show to discuss the oppression of women across the world and the organizations that are helping to make a difference. A few highlighted foundations are: Women for Women International: An amazing foundation that provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency.
Ladies and gents, put your thinking caps on! Our own Crafty Lady Callie Watts runs a girly porn magazine called Ligerbeat, but thanks to some boner killers over at a certain teen magazine that sounds a lot like Ligerbeat, the magazine needs a new name, pronto. According to the top brass over at Boner Killer Central, the name Ligerbeat sounds too much like the name of the teen magazine, thus confusing young children who don't know their alphabet and causing them to look at pornographic images.
''She's majoring in Fat Studies'' might sound like a cruel frat boy heckle, but the field of study really does exist--and an increasing number of identity scholars are out to prove that size does matter.  Have you ever stopped to wonder why Ursula, the evil sea-witch from the Little Mermaid, is characterized as larger-than-life?  Professor Julia McCrossin (pictured left) has.
A friend of mine has been trying to get me into La Roux for several months now, and I just kept saying no. The music was too cutesy, her voice was annoying, and I had enough Europop on my iPod already. But this week, thanks to a free iTunes download of the single 'Bulletproof,' I'm ready to stop denying it and admit that I'm totally hooked. La Roux is made up of epically-coiffed singer Elly Jackson and synth-player/producer Ben Langmaid.
Do you know what happened yesterday? The Madonna: Celebration DVD dropped. Okay, so if you're not as big of a Madonna fan as I am, you probably weren't looking forward to this event as much as I was. I had it marked on my calendar: buy Madonna DVD! I didn't even wait until after work was over -- I bought it on my lunch hour and proudly displayed it to my fellow interns upon my return. They were, um, not quite as interested. But if you are a Madonna fan, then Celebration has all you could ask for.
I don't want to give away too much about the quirky little ditty, Obvious Child, but I will say that it's an unlikely romantic comedy in that it features Jenny Slate as a woman named Donna, heartbroken and one half of a one night stand who winds up pregnant. Her sticky situation results in a trip to the doctor for an abortion and what happens on the way is where the romantic business occurs.
