  If you live in New York City and like fun, be sure to check out The Printup, an event blog that gives you a heads up about parties, fundraisers, art and music events, and not-to-be-missed opportunities to buy super hot shoes for cheap (see these Y-3 sneakers).

The truth has outed. The weiner was Weiner’s, as was the chin/nose shot, the two pussies (which were actually cats, what did you think, pervert?) and the chest shot, which seemed to me the most suspect of all, as I have never seen so little body hair on a Jewish man. There were no “hackers,” who may now enter the vernacular as a descriptor for an shadowy, omniscient demimonde whose nefarious powers are feared and misunderstood by the body politic. “Hackers” are the new “bloggers” or “Jews.” But I digress.

The protection of wild and captive elephants isn’t something that comes on my radar very often, but in the documentary One Lucky Elephant that opens tomorrow, it is an issue that is depicted with all of it’s complexities and a heartfelt look at true friendship. David Balding adopted Flora, an orphaned baby African elephant, and started a circus with her as the central performer. After spending 16 years together, David realizes that Flora is no longer enjoying performing; she is restless and in need of interaction with other elephants.

The Human Rights Watch Film Festival will take place June 16-30 at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center in New York. This year the festival features 19 films from 12 countries, and nine female directors. As we all know, the film industry (like many others) is overwhelmingly male-dominated, so this gender equality is highly commendable.   Though perhaps we should expect no less from Human Rights Watch, which is a truly wonderful organization devoted to bringing justice worldwide.

Well, for their companies anyway. The Senate Joint Economic Committee’s 2010 report says that, though women are still only getting 77 cents to the dollar of a man, they’re actually earning their companies much more. Invest in Women, Invest in America: A Comprehensive Review of Women in the U.S. Economy, the 256 page compendium the committee released, explains that though women make up half of the U.S. workforce and more than half of graduates from institutions of higher education, “gender leadership and pay gaps are alive and well.

I blog a lot about fashion blogs, which I love and can't get enough of, but I thought I'd showcase one of the blogs I go to the most for entertainment news and fashion opinions I respect: Tom&Lorenzo. I only recently realized they changed their official blog name from Project Rungay  to Tom&Lorenzo. It makes sense though since when the blog first began in 2006 it was primarily about Project Runway, but covers a lot more now. Even if you didn't keep up with the episodes of PR, this blog was the perfect way to keep up with the winners, drama, and hilarity of the show.

This month, Vogue Italia has created a fabulous cover of curvy ladies for their latest June issue! Models, Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley all look the epitome of gorgeous gracing the cover and lovely Marquita Pring is added to the mix in other shots. The photos are both sexy and elegant. Although there’s sexy lady curves is the shots (remember the Superbowl/Lane Bryant fiasco?), the models still maintain a very high fashion, editorial feel throughout the pictures.  This cover is big, yet conflicting news for me.

After my swift departure from Corporate America a few months ago, I found myself at a loss. Not so much a loss for the consistent paycheck I continually wasted on frivolous travel or the much-needed health benefits for “regular checkups”, but the notion I would never find a place or group of people who felt the same way I did about the word fuck. I have been blogging for three years, but only recently started taking it more seriously and actually seeing the effects in my bank account.
