This week John McCain criticized the ''Feminist left'' for attacking Sarah Palin. We think he's just frustrated that women weren't fooled by his whole my-VP-pick-wears-a-skirt-so-vote-for-me tactic. Eleanor Smeal, President of Feminist Majority, says, ''Obama/Biden are running on the strongest platform for women's rights of any major party in U.S. history.'' That's why Feminist Majority launched www.FeministsForObama.org, a side-by-side comparison of the candidates on major women's issues like breast cancer research, domestic violence prevention, the Fair Pay Act and reproductive rights.
 If you're in New York, you know it's that magical time of year. Yes, the CMJ Music Marathon has rolled into town and the city has turned into a 24/7 party of ear ecstasy! There are a million shows to go to this week, but be sure to check out the Fool's Gold Showcase tomorrow night at Bowery Ballroom at 10 pm. The label's finest will be performing, including A-Trak, Dave 1 and, of course, our favorite manicured MC, Kid Sister. She'll be spitting rhymes from her amazing upcoming debut, Dream Date.
A box of tampax last cost me over 6 bucks, which is what a drink costs at my favorite bar. I think I would rather spend that money on fun than on the hell that is dry cardboard and bleached cotton! Now you can save money and the environment with Lunapads! Liberate yourself from the monthly madness of disposable pads and tampons with Lunapads and the DivaCup. Given today's financial uncertainty and concern for the environment, taking charge of our monthly menses makes more sense than ever.
Two of my favorite artists are in a show together opening Thursday night in NYC, the lovely Melissa Auf der Mar (former bassist of Hole) and Conrad Keely from ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Melissa is showing her photography, and Conrad his ballpoint pen drawings. Should be an excellent exhibit.
A group of cheeky ladies in Brooklyn have found a way to show their support for Obama while encouraging youth participation in voting (and lookin' good). They updated the iconic protest poster of Joan Baez and her sisters taken by Larry Gates in the 60's. It's nice to see that politics can still be fun. The updated photo was taken by Casey Brooks and features Anna Bean, Karen Maine, Dana Gluck, and Lindsay Withers.
  Crucial friend and former intern Anna Holmgren sent this to my phone! It is on 7th between ave C and D. I would laugh at this no matter which politican was on it. Is everyone totally over political blogs? Cause I went to the McCain rally in Virginia Sat with my Nana and my dad and was going to blog it but maybe we need a break? (Sorry for the crappy pic and the set up of this post, I am on vacation at my parent's house and can't turn the pop ups on to mess with this.
I know everyone is getting a little ridiculous and heated over all the Palin posts. But I think after this weekend's Saturday Night Live skits we can all agree to lighten up a little and laugh it off. Palin proved she could. So why can't we? This 'fun face' camera is pretty hilarious, you put your face in view and you get to have Palin's trademark whispy bangs and librarian style glasses.
and spread a little love with these 'boy beater tees' from Aissata ! Her new line, 'The Unapologetic Woman' features sassy and super sensual females embracing their sexuality. Aissata's curvy characters make you wanna laugh, play, and have sex of course.
