Every piece of cinema Steve Buscemi touches turns to filmic gold, but the unscripted glory of Park Bench has me wondering whether his real calling lies in morning talk shows.  Directed and hosted by Buscemi with help from sidekick Geo Orlando, Park Bench is a “local’s take” on “New York City and the people/places that make it special." Every episode for two seasons now has featured the same bench (literally, they have their own park bench on wheels and they cart it around the city) but a new crop...

Alana Haim once told an interviewer that, “Growing up, there were a lot of girl artists like the Spice Girls, Aaliyah and Destiny’s Child. But none of them really played instruments and I would always look up to Stevie Nicks and Blondie -- they are dope female musicians.” Today, there’s tons of kick-ass groups for girls to look up to.  New music is constantly coming out and woman-fronted bands have been putting out the best of the best. Here are some bands, in no particular order,...

Damon Wayans, an 80s actor/comedian/director best known for his work on popular TV series including My Wife and Kids and In Living Color, recently defended accused rapist Bill Cosby on The Breakfast Club, Power 105.1 FM's hip-hop radio talk show.  “I don’t believe he was raping," Wayans said.  "I believe he was in relationships with all of them.” He later went on to joke, “Listen, how big is his penis that it gives you amnesia for forty years?” Um….dude…what the actual fuck?  While her male co-worker laughed, the female interviewer astutely noted Cosby had been...

We’ve entered the second year of an insane legal battle between the Japanese government and Megumi Igarashi, an artist who was arrested for displaying images and molds of her own vagina and now faces a possible 2-year jail sentence and a $20,000 fine. Her arrest is a result of Japan’s whacko obscenity laws. Article 175 of the Japanese penal code outlaws the possession or sale of obscene objects and images but nowhere in the code is obscenity defined. Furthermore, government officials are not legally bound to...

  How To Have A Feminist Wedding Think that feminism and marriage make an unlikely pairing? Think again. Sure, marriage has historically functioned as a transfer of female property between men, and Emma Goldman once implied that a wife is just a glorified prostitute. But while some feminists would like to see rights and privileges disassociated from the institution of marriage altogether, plenty of others choose to tie the knot on their own terms. Unfortunately, the wedding industry still reinforces the status quo: that weddings should be...
