It’s only October 26th, and actor/model Colton Haynes is already killing the costume game. Gender-bending-Abercrombie-babe blowing up my Instagram? Yes please!  In the last week Colton - who acts in Teen Wolf and Arrow - posted pics of himself as Fiona, the fiery ogre princess from Shrek, and the most fabulous villain under the sea, The Little Mermaid's Ursula. I love seeing this chiseled dude flaunting his fem side because Halloween is about having fun and doing you, even if it’s a different you than what you normally do. Can’t wait to...

Superhero stories have many common tropes: Intricate origin story, weaknesses, strengths, complex relationships and usually a key attribute that makes them identifiable. Minus the capes and the X-ray vision, this description sounds a little bit like you, doesn’t it? Emily V. Gordon thinks so too, which is why her book Super You is jam packed with comic book references that make so much sense, you hardly remember you’re reading a self-help book. Gordon, a therapist turned comedy writer, talks about her journey wearing  several different...

If nothing else, the Internet loves adorable animals, awkward vintage photos (prime meme fodder) and a nice batch of reimagined Disney princess illustrations. And who wouldn’t? Millions of Americans grow up internalizing every facet of those animated movies – they’re iconic pieces of American culture, like cheeseburgers and Britney Spears’ discography. In other words: Disney movies are very much here to stay, and they belong to all of us.  Of course, in the original flicks, you won’t spot any same sex couples, much less a two-princess-pairing....

Jake Hoffman’s feature film directorial debut, Asthma, deploys almost every romantic comedy trope there is, all the while throwing in heroin to give it some street cred. It longs to be edgy and ironic. It’s a romantic comedy wanting to be a Wes Anderson film. Krysten Ritter’s character, a tattoo artist named Ruby, was the ultimate manic pixie dream girl and just to show how quirky she is, she carries her tattoo supplies in a vintage suitcase. Because did we mention quirk? From the moment Gus (Benedict...

I’ve never seen pumpkins as threatening, but maybe I’m wrong to assume safety in commonplace front porch décor—you never know what’s lurking. The way this Thumbelina-sized fuzzball yips, you’d think he was seeing horrific visions in seasonal kitsch. These furry little jumps and helpless squeals in the face of a paranormal pumpkin melted my heart.  Poor little Bilbo, rightfully yipping away at a haunted pumpkin to no avail. I trust animal intuition: there must be a message from the occult embedded somewhere in this mini squash....
