If Angelina’s double mastectomy has you thinking about your own cancer prevention options, here’s a heads up. What Jolie calls her “faulty gene,” BRCA1, is one of two genetic mutations that increase a woman’s chances of having breast and ovarian cancer. Not many people have these kinds of mutations, but for those who do, odds are they’ll develop the disease at some point in their lives. The good news – a biotech company called Myriad Genetics has an advance screening test that can tell you if you...

  Rejoice - the high priestess of grunge hits the road solo this June! It’s been ages since she first claimed her throne as a '90s punk rock icon (Frances Bean isn’t a sprout anymore), but trust us - this mama hasn’t lost her edge. When Hole played at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly last year, there were murmurs about a possible reunion tour (yes please!). For now, Courtney is heading off on her own with some new backing bandmates and a fresh set of songs. If you’d do anything...

  Meet Emma Watkins, a 23-year-old dancer from Australia, and your new Wiggle! If you don’t already know and love the Wiggles (which is totally possible if you’re over age five) let me fill you in. For over two decades, four grown men in different colored shirts and striped leggings have finger-wagged their way into the hearts of babies and little kids worldwide. They’ve been Australia’s top-grossing entertainers, they’ve had multiple TV shows, and they’ve written such lyrical treasures as Toot Toot Chugga Chugga and Fruit Salad,...

Have you heard? The Banana Stand from Arrested Development has sprung to life and popped up in a few lucky cities. Our own N.Y.C. is a stop on the Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana Stand World Tour, and if you’re buy-curious about those bananas, I can tell you all about ‘em. This Monday, the Banana Stand was perched in front of the Rockefeller Centre in the middle of Manhattan. The line was up the block and around the corner, spanning two solid blocks around 6th Avenue and...

Any music fan worth her salt has a well-worn copy of the Breeders' Last Splash on her shelf. It defies classification--not quite punk, not quite riot grrrl--but it is, without question, iconic. Packed with delightfully off-kilter noise pop gems, it's an all-time classic of alternative rock. Even the notoriously picky taste arbiters at Pitchfork agree--it's ranked (a shockingly low) 64 on their list of Top 100 Albums of the 1990s. For the 20th anniversary of the LP's release, the Breeders have reunited the original Last Splash lineup for...
