I don’t know about you, but I grew up positively drowning in Barbies. As I got older, I began to notice that all mine looked the same. (Go figure!) I read articles explaining just how unrealistic Barbie’s proportions are, and had to come to terms with the fact that I would never have perpetually pointed toes, hair that changes color in the pool, or perfectly symmetrical lady parts. We all know the dangers of comparing ourselves to a small, plastic doll—yet Barbie remains a beloved,...

Lucky for you folks, the Ace Hotel Palm Springs has figured out what you should do once the quitting bell rings that day: get your luckiest troll and rainbow marker, and head out to Kings Highway to help celebrate the release of Linda Gerard's (aka Linda Fabulous) new album Fabulous Selections—and play some kickass Sissy Bingo to boot.

Vice has just released this new video featuring a holiday message from two of my favorite critters on the planet: Lil Bub and Andrew W.K.   Lil Bub, for the uninitiated, is a star-cat whose appearance is defined by his dwarfism, big ol’ saucer eyes, and perpetually stuck-out tongue. Andrew W.K is a singer-songwriter and the self-proclaimed “King of Partying”. Together, they are an unstoppable dream team of cheer.  The video, Lil Bub and Andrew W.K.’s Special Holiday Message, urges viewers to remember all those animals out...
