Have you heard this one? A guy walks into a bar and...6 million Jewish men, women and children get slaughtered. Not a knee-slapper? Would it help if I told you the guy in question had a nerdtastic mustache? The Holocaust, along with other grave subjects like rape, 9/11, and AIDS, are often taboo topics for humor. And while these things are beyond horrible and tragic in real life (#duh), should these heart-wrenching realities be off-limits in the realm of comedy? That’s the question explored in Ferne Pearlstein’s...
Hair and Makeup: Paige CampbellPhotographed by Jena Cumbo Harsh Crowd is a pop-punk phenomenon with a riot grrrl heart The music world would be wise to take Harsh Crowd seriously—these high-school girls are not messing around. Band members Rihana Abdulrashid-Davis, Lena Faske, Dea Brogaard-Thompson, and Willow Bennison already have two EPs under their belts and have opened up for big indie acts like Mac DeMarco, Mirah, Sharon Van Etten, and Hurray for the Riff Raff. Along the way, they’ve racked up praise from New York Magazine, The...
*Spoilers for Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life below, though it's been four months and you really should have watched it by now, or at least not clicked this link if you wanted to remain un-spoiled.* When the Gilmore Girls revival season ended with those long-teased four words — “Mom?” “Yeah?” “I’m pregnant.” — we thought that Netflix was setting us up for a sequel, even though creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has said in interviews that she’s had those in mind as the FINAL four words...
On March 3, 1997, Daria premiered on MTV. A spin-off of Mike Judge’s show, Beavis & Butthead, Daria focused on one of the minor characters — who Beavis and Butthead continuously referred to as “diarrhea.” Unlike the bro-y fanbase that Beavis & Butthead appealed to, Daria was MTV’s attempt at attracting a female viewership. “MTV had no female viewers,” says Glenn Eichler, co-creator of Daria in an interview with Variety. However, Karen Disher, who came up with the plot of Daria’s pilot episode, always believed the show to...
NYC-based surf band High Waisted is back with a new video, "Human Performance," for their cover of the original Parquet Courts song off of the band's Acid Tapes Volume 3. The video was written and directed by frontwoman Jessica Louise Dye. Dye has been heartbroken since the election and turned to creating when she realized that protesting just wasn't enough. Dye's video is a dreamy feminist satire of the relationship between consumer capitalism and the female body — of this idea that our bodies can be bought. Dye uses hyper-sexualized...
“I never expected to make a living doing my art,” Lynn Shelton said during the press tour for her latest film, Laggies (2014). The Seattle-based filmmaker didn’t feel a burning desire to become a director until her late 30s. She worked in theater, moved to New York to study photography, and worked as a film editor on friends’ movies. “I just did not have the confidence to do it,” Shelton said in a 2009 interview with The New York Times. “And then I had to find...

If you don’t know much about Mama Cass, you probably still know a few of her songs — that’s her voice leading the Mamas and the Papas in the classic song “California Dreamin,’” and she’s the artist behind “Make Your Own Kind Of Music,” aka that song from the hatch in Lost. But those who love Mama Cass — me included — love her for a lot more than her voice. She was a fat woman in the spotlight in a time when very few fat...
Parker Day: the LA based photographer and artist flaunts a new collection of 100 portraits using unretouched 35mm film, hyperbolizing personas of the people she shoots. With influences such as John Waters, David Lynch and R.Crumb, it is easy to see where Day draws her ability to blur the lines between real and imaginary and to uniquely juxtapose the sombre with the comical. Ahead of the New York opening of her first solo series ICONS, we catch up with the photographer to explore themes such...
On Tuesday, it was announced that former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have signed book deals with Penguin Random House (the whole world rejoices knowing it was not with Simon and Schuster). Barack Obama’s book will be “a straightforward memoir about his presidency,” while Michelle will write “an inspirational work for young people that will draw upon her life story.” The release dates and titles remain unknown, but the highly sought-after book deals reportedly topped $65 million. Of course, the Obamas will donate a...
