Julia Mamaea, the first official Empress of the Roman Empire The Metropolitan Museum of Art can sometimes be a little overwhelming. With so much to see, it's hard to know where to look, and harder still to get the full story behind a piece. The Met can also be somewhat dude-heavy. The Met has never had a female director; meanwhile Guerilla Girls, a group of anonymous feminist activist artists, contrasts the number of women artists against the number of female nudes on display, and the numbers are depressing...

Brooklyn-based record label Mon Amie are reissuing Goodbye Horses by Q Lazzarus, and we are thrilled to have the exclusive premiere of two long-lost demos ahead of its official release on April 21st. The curiously elusive nature of the vampy musician is fascinating. The cloak-and-dagger songstress was born in New Jersey. In the 1980s, she fled a violent marriage and moved to New York City, where she became a taxi driver. While she was a taxi driver, her hypnotizing voice was discovered and she recorded the...

Rowan Hisayo Buchanan's debut novel Harmless Like You opens, after a prologue, with a flasher. It's 1968 and our protagonist, a teenage girl named Yuki, is walking to her high school in New York City. When she sees a man flash a passing office girl, she stops for a moment and notices, "He was ignored by this chignonned woman, and she, Yuki, was invisible to him, a man who flaunted the shriveled purple stump of his penis on the first cold day of fall." Buchanan (who, full...

Last month, season one of the revamped Powerpuff Girls series made its streaming debut on Hulu, alongside Powerpuff Girls (Classic). As someone born in the '90s, the Powerpuff Girls were all the rage for my generation. I remember collecting the dolls as a kid, and always identifying with Blossom, as much as I wanted to be more like Buttercup. When I helped out at a kindergarten class during my senior year of high school, I asked the 4-year-olds if they'd ever heard of the Powerpuff Girls —...

Dates, especially first dates, and ESPECIALLY blind first dates, are hella uncomfortable. Luckily, you can now watch painfully awkward dinner dates from the safety of your own futon. I watched the first two episodes of Ellen DeGeneres’s new docuseries, First Dates, which is based off a successful UK show under the same name. The dates all happen at a restaurant in Chicago, which is supposedly the place to go to find love. There isn’t anything you need to know besides what the title tells you. First dates,...
