With her adorable candied vocals that are sweet and smooth like honey, Imani Coppola of Little Jackie sweeps you off your feet on dangerously catchy tunes that are sugary pop, but loaded with substance. She, along with multi-instrumentalist Adam Pallin, are back as Little Jackie for their third album, Queen of Prospect Park, and it’s certain to brighten up dreary autumn days and wintry nights with summery beats. Queen of Prospect Park glows as soon as you hit ... Read More
In Afghanistan, where having a son is vital for any respectable family, little girls are sometimes disguised and raised as boys. Here, journalist Jenny Nordberg investigates this complicated cultural game of hidden identity   “Our brother is really a girl.” One of the eager-looking twins nods to reaffirm her words. Then she turns to her sister. She agrees. Yes, it is true. She can confirm it. They are two 10-year-old identical girls, each with black hair, ... Read More
    On Saturday, Sept. 20, The Theater at The Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles held an art gala with proceeds benefiting Planned Parenthood. Radiating a poetic elegance from every angle, the venue reiterated the contextual nature of the beast, the SEXY BEAST, that is; an antiquity built with a solid foundation—restored in the name of modern progression. Oh, the metaphors! SEXY BEAST was organized by Davida Nemeroff and Mieke Marple of the ... Read More

Mars Hill Church, a 15-location megachurch headed by Pastor Mark Driscoll (who infamously referred to women as “penis homes”) has, in the past few weeks, been facing a growing controversy over its power structure, bullying of attendees and staff, and Driscoll’s inflammatory online (and in-pulpit) statements regarding (among other things), the status of women within the church, and marriage. Attendance is way down; Mars Hill is firing staff and ... Read More

Given that The Skeleton Twins stars Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Luke Wilson, it’s easy to jump to the conclusion that the film must be a gut-busting comedy. But the first 10 minutes will prove you wrong — Wiig’s character Maggie is about to attempt suicide when she’s interrupted by a phone call from a Los Angeles hospital telling her that her twin brother Milo (Hader) has just survived his own suicide attempt. The siblings haven’t ... Read More

On the phone, things with Ed were going well, which was why I went out with him despite his having what my friend Erica identified as a case of “Jersey face.” His corporate headshot, which he’d sent me upon answering my (totally benign/wholesome) Craigslist ad, featured a slight downward tip of the head, pursed thin lips, jowls pushed up and almost over his collar thanks to the tie, and the brown hair and eyes of a Jewish man with a smidge of ...
