It’s summer. It’s hot. It’s the perfect time for a scoop of ice cream. Ice cream that donates a part of the proceeds to organizations in need? Great! Just give me the ice cream. But apparently buying ice cream isn't that simple when the aforementioned organization is Planned Parenthood. What’s the Scoop?, an ice cream shop in Portland, chose Planned Parenthood as its donation recipient during July; then, a pro-life website picked up the story and so began the barrage of harassment. They’ve been receiving angry...
  In light of Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi’s arrest for her “obscene” vagina art, it’s safe to say that our society has developed some sort of vendetta against our vaginas (or has the extremely rational fear of getting eaten alive by our man-eating “Venus Flytraps”).  In part 1 of his memoir “My Vagina,” Nathan Schaaf divulges about his lack of knowledge regarding the “mysterious” nature of vaginas until very late in his life and, subsequently, blames the media and pop culture for their stigmatization of vaginas.   Schaaf makes some...
Much of the inspiration for Gulp's latest album came from the band's road trip through the Golden State, and you'll definitely feel the heat of the California sun coming off of these tracks.  Their style hearkens back to the time when psychedelic pop had just discovered analog synths.

"Clean and Serene" is another shiny tune...
Have you been fervently trolling the internet in search of a crazy, weird, out-of-the-ordinary New York City attraction, perhaps in the hopes of avoiding yet another ill-fated trip to the Met with your pretentious Art-History-enthusiast frenemy, or an endless trek to the tourist-infested, “I love NY-T-Shirt” propaganda-ridden areas, alongside your naïve Midwestern college friend? Well look no further!   You may have a few more chances to visit Reverend Jen’s Lower East Side Troll Museum (LOL, get my pun now?), where you can journey under the...
It’s hard to find the appropriate words for a situation as unsettling as this one.   In February of last year, a male gynecologist at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore was discovered to have photographed and recorded videos of his patients in the examination room with a secret camera that he wore around his neck.   An investigation was launched that uncovered around 1,200 videos and 140 photographs of over  8,000 patients at his home. The OBGYN in question, Dr. Nikita Levy, committed suicide soon after the...
