From the late 1950s to the mid-1960s, it was common practice for publishers to put out little dictionaries specifically edited and designed for preteen and young teenage girls. Their vinyl covers featured popular characters or aspirational figures (the cute scholar on the white one pictured here is named “Miss Sophista Kate”) and they were often a single item in a whole line of similarly designed accessories, from scrapbooks and photo albums to makeup ...

There is no denying that food and health documentaries are big right now. The success of films like Food, Inc., Forks Over Knives, and Killer at Large have proven how science and nutrition can make it big at the box office. The market has been saturated. So why then would a heavy hitter like Katie Couric spearhead yet another one of these films? The answer is clearly there in the film. Fed Up is a passion project from a group of concerned women fearfully ... Read More
In my early days as a restaurant cook, I had nightmares about breakfast. Not about consuming it, but preparing it. That fear had less to do with my hatred of waking up early and more to do with my anxiety over poaching eggs. “Ordering! Five more eggs Benedict!” the expeditor would scream, and I’d crack 30 eggs into the poaching water, hoping 20 of those would turn out edible. Though it took a while before I got my rhythm down, once I did, I became a ... Read More

Coppola isn’t much older than her film’s ... Read More
Sure, you can buy vintage dresses on eBay, but if you want the good shit, you need to hit a thrift store. I’m talking about Goodwill, Savers, and the Salvation Army—places that smell like an artisanal blend of human pee, cat pee, and mold; where every coat pocket is stuffed with a wadded-up tissue. When it comes to the thrill of the hunt, nothing compares to a straight-up thrift score. Are you ready to attack this experience like a ravenous tiger with ... Read More
