The New York Times had a really moving short documentary up on their site today profiling an 11-year-old Pakistani girl on the last day before the Taliban closes down her school. In her small town, Taliban militants have taken hold of their previously free and open society, and just this year have decreed that women are no longer allowed to shop in the public market and girls are no longer allowed to go to school.

Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer, the comedic trio that brought you 'Lazy Sunday' and 'Dick In a Box', are going to be at the Virgin Megastore Union Square TONIGHT at 7 pm. There will be a record signing/Q and A for their debut album Incredibad , which is chock-full of musical parody genius. All you have to do is purchase the record at the Union Square Virgin Megastore location and receive your bracelet to get entry into the event. Be sure to show up early, because you know these dudes will bring a packed house. Those of you in the Boston area can get in on this too.

So excited that George Michael finally came around to agreeing to be in the movie version of Arrested Development. Hopefully this movie will actually be made, since it's probably one of the funniest shows ever. While I love each and every character, I think my favorite is Gob (aka Amy Poehler's husband, Will Arnett). Cmon! via E.

New Lady Sov video! Lady Sovereign - So Human I love that crazy block necklace she is wearing. I think this is my fav song off the album.

A Kansas city woman has her tightly woven weave (I mean God) to thank for saving her life. Apparently her boyfriend shot at her and luckily her weave stopped the bullet. 'I've invested a lot of money into this weave and it saved my life.' Now that's what I call a good hair day.

BUST Magazine's Spring Fling Craftacular is on its way to Brooklyn, NY! Eager crafters and indie designers are now welcome to apply!!

Dudes, this was such an interesting event. Check out the ligerbeat recap here. We meet so many interesting people and got invited to so many sex events and got so much encouragement for starting a porn for women. They are planning similar events soon and I will be sure to post them. I literally could not stop talking about this all weekend, the concept that sex is not natural blew my face off. By the way, ligerbeat drops in two weeks! If I had a penny for every dick I've seen this weekend I would be richer then Puffy.

Exactly what should our rights be when it comes to reproduction technology and what regulations, if any, should be put into place to prevent an all out baby as business world? This Saturday in NYC, Barnard College's 34th Annual Scholar Feminist Conference will gather artists, activists, and academics to discuss and explore this exact issue in The Politics of Reproduction: New Technologies of Life. I think this should be a pretty relevant, fascinating topic.
