Evan Rachel Wood launched a series of (rightfully) angry tweets at the MPAA last week, after discovering that they had forced director Frederik Bond to edit out a particular scene in his new film, "Charlie Countryman," in which Wood receives oral sex from her male co-star, Shia LaBeouf. Had the scene been left in, the film would have received an NC-17 rating, something that many filmmakers try to avoid as it seriously limits their audience and the film's distribution. Complying with the changes, Bond was able to...
I’ve found my new musical crush in Sharkmuffin, an all-female noise-punk trio from Brooklyn whose third EP 1097 debuts this month.

A profile by Danielle McGuire reveals that Parks had a history of outspoken activism, and dedicated much of her life to fighting sexism and brutality. In 1943, Parks was elected secretary of the...

Fracking is the process of drilling and injecting highly pressurized fluids into the shale rock layers deep beneath the ground. The process is used to extract natural gas that was once unreachable with previous technology. Wastewater is often produced as a by-product of fracking. This wastewater can contain chemicals, heavy metals, and radiation. The Huffington Post reports that the U.S. Coast Guard is seeking...
