I like Classical Art…and I also like voluptuous ginger cats. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Russian artist Svetlana Petrova probably heard the art world (and me) cry for more cat-tastic representation. Our “we need moar catz!@$!” vibes were heard! Petrova has a website that we can waste away hours on appropriately named FatCatArt.  Petrova photoshops her big cat, Zarathustra, into classics like Hokusai’s Great Wave off Kanagawa and Wood’s American Gothic. I think Wood’s ascetic painting looks more cheerful with Zarathustra, no?  Petrova claims Zarathustra...
Earlier this year, Amber Ruffin was hired to write for Seth Meyers’ Late Night. This was very significant because she is the first woman of color to write for a network late night show, ever. That’s right, ever. The state of the TV writing industry is not very diverse, you see, if hiring a black woman writer makes headlines.

Many girls were wearing appropriate clothes that were altered to add a sleeve or a thick, black, fake camisole...
  Sophia Amorusa has lived many lives and I’m jealous of all of them. From her days as a freegan dumpster diving hitchhiker to where she is now, the CEO and creative director of the uber popular online boutique Nastygal.com, Amorusa has been kicking ass and taking names. My parents own their own business together so I’ve been surrounded by books about how to run a business my whole life. Sophia Amorusa’s book #GIRLBOSS is completely different from those guides written by middle-aged men, thank god. This...
