We've been fans of duo songstresses Smoke Fairies since their debut release Through Low Light and Trees back in 2011. The British gals, Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies, have fine-tuned their haunting harmonized vocals and powerful dual guitarwork over the past six years. Smoke Fairies put an eerily brilliant spin on blues rock by incorporating classic folk elements into their sound, especially on tracks like "Let Me Know" and "Awake." The psych-folk ladies are now releasing an EP in honor of Record Store Day this Saturday,...
Some stories just slip through the cracks. Although it’s been almost three years in the works, the story of (ex) Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic, The Women’s Medical Society, has just now been brought to our attention (and horror).   The details are tragic and not for the faint-hearted.

While Louis is still the bitter, self-deprecating comedian who stands on the edge of humanity waiting to show us...
Although cereal isn't the healthiest of breakfast options, this recipe helps bring some nutrition to the table. (Literally! HA.) I knew I had to have these when I read that this chef was inspired by Momofuku Milk Bar, one of my many bakery obsessions and one that specializes in delectable cereal milk. When crushing up the cereal, I suggest pouring it into a Ziploc bag and just breaking it up with your hands. (Or, as the recipe says, you can try a food processor.) You...
