If you’ve heard of Mozart In The Jungle, chances are you might have first heard of it not quite a year ago when the Amazon series took home two Golden Globes — big ones. Winning Best Television Series — Comedy and Best Actor In A Television Series — Musical Or Comedy for star Gael Garcia Bernal, the wins sparked explainer headlines like “What Is Golden Globe Winner Mozart In The Jungle All About?” “What Is ‘Mozart In The Jungle’ And Why Did It Win A...
I have an addiction to buying journals. My latest purchase was a beautiful blue and gold number I found at The Strand over a year ago. I have written on exactly three pages. Since then, it has sat on a shelf next to other partially filled journals gathering dust. Recently, I pulled several of these journals out and read them. Some of them had entries that went back more than a decade. I was such a naive babe in the woods! I made a mental...
After dropping out of college as a biology major, Ana Lily Amirpour went to art school in San Francisco and film school at UCLA. She signed early with Hollywood agents and managers, but while in Germany making a short film for the Berlinale Talent Campus, she decided the studio route was not what she wanted to do. “I ended up not making those Hollywood films and I am so glad. They were not my pure soul matter. In Germany, I got to sit and think about...
  Is there anyone who’s got it going on more than Amy Schumer right now? Nominated for two Grammies and in negotiations to play Barbie in Mattel’s 2018 live-action movie... not to mention writing a New York Times-bestselling book, writing and starring in her own movies, and being one of the most popular comedians in the world. Sadly, online trolls like to go after brilliant, thriving, badass women. Since the Barbie announcement, body-shamers have been bleating their objections that Schumer does not match the original doll’s unrealistic proportions...

There is an underlying faction of workers subtly managing the day-to-day business of shops across New York City: cats. If you've shopped around locally owned stores in New York, chances are you've encountered one of these shop cats, watching over the store like a king or queen over their kingdom, or interacting with their fans (regular customers). In Shop Cats of New York, author Tamar Arslanian and photographer Andrew Marttila sought to capture the hard-working felines of popular New York spots like the Astoria Hotel,...
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been pretty busy getting through daily tasks while simultaneously trying to figure out how we’re going to get the lamp back from Jafar. Self-care is important these days, and so is sharing a laugh. Here are some jokes that made me laugh that I’d love to share with you.   Anna Drezen recently joined the writing staff for a small show, not sure if you’ve heard of it, but it’s called Saturday Night Live! If you’re like me and have...
Tuesday night, tattoo artist Ryan Ashley Malarkey became the first woman in eight seasons to win the coveted title of Ink Master. Prior to this season of Ink Master, women had yet to dominate and time and time again, male artists ended up on top. However, Malarkey defied the odds by proving that gender has nothing to do with artistic talent and feminism can make a positive difference in a competitive setting. It is important to recognize that although Malarkey is an extremely talented artist as...
Sick of listening to the same holiday songs, over and over again? Are you craving a holiday tune that you can deck the halls to and get down at the club to? Do you need an excuse to pop bottles and light up a blunt with your home girls after spending 24/7 with the fam? Then you should probably take a listen to “Lit (Like a Christmas Tree)” by Hand Job Academy and Basside. Straight from the ladies who rapped about periods, Tumblr bitches, and Lena...
