Marianna Taschinger, a victim of revenge porn, fights back    In a recent piece, The New York Times’s Erica Goode exposes the corrupt, disgusting world of “revenge porn.” All around the country, people are founding websites onto which angry ex-lovers can post nude images previously sent or given to them in moments of intimacy.

    Comedian Chris Fleming has created a new webseries entitled Gayle. With a new episode every Sunday, viewers are asked to enter the world of affluent suburbanite mom Gayle, a woman who combines an air of hoity toity superiority with the drive and discipline of a drill sergeant. In other words, she’s laugh-out-loud hilarious.    Gayle snorts Kashi cereal and powerwalks. Her life is filled the staples of a stereotypical wealthy American family: cookie sheets, spin classes, kayaks, cheese knives and gouda. A total overachiever in life and...

Some say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. New York Post reporter Stephanie Smith took that as gospel truth, and she set the Internet abuzz yesterday by revealing herself as the author behind 300sandwiches.com. The blog came about after Smith made her boyfriend a sandwich one morning. After finishing the meal, he told Smith that she was “300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring.” Her blog chronicles her journey (and recipes) towards that proposal—today’s sandwich, the “Baked at Halftime” Fried Green Tomato...

  Hillary Clinton has always been a favorite politician of mine. Without going into a full on political debate here, I think she has an amazing work ethic and solid ideas for the country. In a recent New York Magazine article entitled “Hillary in Midair,” she comes off as refreshingly normal.   “We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years,” says Clinton of her family. “We have a great time; we laugh at our dogs; we watch stupid...

    In a recent Hollywood Reporter article, Tatiana Siegal discusses how the formula for the Romantic Comedy is dead. The Meet-Cute is the blanket term for that age-old, quirk-filled scenario of boy meets girl: she trips and falls in his lap/ she leaves her book at the coffee shop where he works/ they meet in a mall and she turns out to be his parole officer, etc.   Siegal suggests that mainstream movie audiences are no longer interested in seeing the meet-cute formula as made famous in movies like...
