  I have a pretty kick-ass job: editing some of the creativity books is part of my job at Perigee Books. I’ve gotten to deliberately spill coffee on the publicity materials for Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal. For Michelle Taute’s Fold Me Up, I spent hours at my desk tinkering with old-school fortune tellers, making sure they all folded in a way that would do my inner fourth-grader proud. (And if I find myself with a creative block, I can turn to books from my colleagues...

Evan Rachel Wood launched a series of (rightfully) angry tweets at the MPAA last week, after discovering that they had forced director Frederik Bond to edit out a particular scene in his new film, "Charlie Countryman," in which Wood receives oral sex from her male co-star, Shia LaBeouf. Had the scene been left in, the film would have received an NC-17 rating, something that many filmmakers try to avoid as it seriously limits their audience and the film's distribution.

I’ve found my new musical crush in Sharkmuffin, an all-female noise-punk trio from Brooklyn whose third EP 1097 debuts this month. If their first two EPs were humble admissions of guilt, 1097 is the realization that they were right all along—a giant ‘fuck you’ to whoever pissed them off personally or politically.   The cover for the first track, "Foul Play" features lead guitarist/vocalist Tarra Thiessen on a beach between two cairns, maybe meditating on the past as she plots revenge or desecration, or maybe she’s coming...
