I feel my stomach tighten. It’s the feeling you get when the person you love the most is hurt and you can do nothing; when you realize you are helpless and fall prey to the inevitability of a disease that takes no prisoners. Alzheimer’s is a complicated beast, and even more so, the communal living situation...
Remember Dilek Baykara's dreamy, steamy illustrations? Here's the deal: mysterious, illusory, and undeniably haunting, the work of Dilek Baykara is multifaceted and expansive. She's a Brooklyn-based grad of the School of Visual Arts, and she's got a solo show launching this Thursday right here in New York City. You're invited! Here's a peek at her latest work:   The girl's subject matter is often dark, exploring decay and horror in new ways, with pieces like "The Mistress of Death." Although sometimes disturbing, her art is inevitably gorgeous and passionate, illustrating...
Bearing one of the cutest singer/songwriter names ever, England’s Little Boots stomps out her newest album, Nocturnes, with adorable results.

I'd say she hit the nail on the head with Personal Record (out June 4 on Merge), where you'll find songs like...
"Ugh, my jeans so do not fit anymore. I'm a cow!" "No way, I'M the cow! Just look at my cankles!" Yeah, we've all done it. Whether or not you admit it, we've all fat-talked. It's easy to do and it's so normalized that you might not even realize you're doing it. It becomes an automatic response. Psychologists define it as "the body-denigrating conversation between girls and women." While it might seem basically harmless, this type of infectious speech can be a major factor in eating...
