How fantastic would it be if you were given a dollar for every instance someone said to you “Wow, you've changed so much!”? I, for one, would probably be lounging by my gigantic pool and fanning myself with $100 bills in the Hamptons right now, if that were the case. It can be difficult to really see the changes you’ve undergone with age—which is what inspired the individuals posted on Young Me/Now Me to submit photos from their past, along with the recreated image of...

Chicago-based artist and illustrator Lilli Carré creates magical characters in her comics and animations. Whether she’s telling the tale of a mythical singing sea monster, a stone-skipping woodsman, or a sister-run joke-writing business, she manages to create work that's altogether thought-provoking, sincere, and relatable. I was introduced to Carré’s work with her 2008 debut graphic novel The Lagoon, which also became one of the first works to turn me on to the wonderful world of comics and graphic novels. The Lagoon tells the tale of...

Animated movies usually revolve around cute talking animals and macho heroes, but lately, ladies seem to be taking over the genre. Brave knocked fellow animated film Madagascar 3 off its pedestal at the top of box office last week--the former earned $66.3 million in the USA alone. This week, the international trailer for Epic (the 2013 animated flick from the creators of Ice Age) was released, and it looks like the movie may live up to its title.With voice-acting from Amanda Seyfried, Beyoncé, and Josh...

I can blissfully recall noshing on Oreo cookies after a particularly rough day of junior high school. No, the creamy goodness didn’t make any bullies disappear, but the sugar rush lasted me well into the evening (much to my parents’ dismay). So, when I logged onto Facebook the Monday after New York City’s Gay Pride parade, I was struck with an Oreo cookie so stuffed that I couldn’t even begin to think about the calorie count.

Summer means a lot of things: pools, slip n' slides, cook outs, struggling to install that window AC unit, and ultimately, vacation. Whether it's the days you take off from your 9 to 5 to vegetate in your bed watching Netflix, an escape to Europe, or a trip to the Jersey shore, vacation is a staple for summer. If you plan to escape to the wilderness for your vacation, you're going to need a baller tent to shelter you from the elements. Allow us to suggest...
