First, she gets to hang out with Flight of the Conchords all the time.Then, she gets to hang out with Jon Stewart and do this:  Yeah, that's right. Hillary's defeat had nothing to do with sexism. ... Read More
So there's this British lady named Cath Kidston, see, and I've been in like with her every since I bought her book, Vintage Style, about a million years ago (okay, 9 years ago). Back then, she mentioned having some kind of small shop somewhere in the  UK, so when I heard she was opening a shop in NY's own Noho a while back I practically creamed my jeans (full disclosure: i don't ever actually wear jeans). I dragged my bfriend's sorry ass to her overly precious ... Read More

Kids These Days

BY debbie in General

I've been curious about this truly old-school subculture trend, ever since I caught eye of some of it while in London last fall, and spotted a few people in my Brooklyn nabe wearing oversized Newsy caps, spats, and assorted other style paraphernalia from the 1920s and '30s. And now, I've found the proof that there really is a seemingly unlikely revival happening these days—of the Jazz Age! Back when I was a yoot, we kids made the trek out to  ... Read More

Jessica, on CNN.com's story posted today about catcalling. But even though she's the only one quoted who seemed to enjoy that kind of crap, the headline on the CNN.com story teases, "Hey baby! That catcalling is ... Read More

FOC, You Got it Goin' On

I saw Flight of the Conchords on Tuesday Night, & Laurie saw them last night. The thing that both of us noticed is just how insanely crazy these guys make the ladies, turning even adult women into 8-year-old girlfans w—crying, screaming, and laughing embarassingly loudly at jokes they've already heard a million times.What really cracks me up in the Jemaniac/Brettaholic community is the tribute videos made by random girlies all around the world...Case in ...

Baby Daddy

BY debbie in General

There's been a lot of talk lately about Thomas Beatie, the FTM transexual who is currently pregnant, especially since he appeared on Oprah yesterday. He's being touted as the "first pregnant man."However, there was another male pregnancy that followed this exact same set of circumstances almost a decade ago.  Matt Rice, the FTM partner of Pat Califia, gave birth to their son back in the late 1990's.  Just like Thomas, Matt had had top ...
