  Reuters has recently reported that feminist Mormons are not voting for Mitt Romney. First of all, FEMINIST MORMONS EXIST?  I'm down with that! Secondly, you know the guy screwed up somewhere along the way if other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aren’t voting for one of their own. Aimee Hickman, co-editor of Mormon feminist magazine Exponent II, took Romney to task for his comments during last Tuesday's debate. Romney's infamous "binders full of women" comment, while worded ridiculously, was meant to suggest that he was...
Remember when Bridesmaids came out and the world braced itself for an onslaught of outrageous, gross-out female comedies? Well, That’s What She Said, a raunchy new film fresh from Sundance, will inevitably be counted by those taking measure of the Bridesmaids revolution.

When she got older, she continues, she had thoughts...
Here’s a pop of psychedelic joy to brighten up your gloomy Tuesday!     Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Sami Akbari, who performs as sami.the.great, has just released a video for her throwback single “Hear Me Now”. Sami’s twee-yet-powerful voice and charmingly introspective songwriting usually bring Ingrid Michaelson to mind, but she puts on her Nancy Sinatra hat (or, more appropriately, flip wig) for this upbeat track. The video matches the deliriously fuzzy girl-group vibe with a heaping helping of lo-fi animation. Check it out right here:     Don’t forget to stop by iTunes or...
