I won’t lie, you will definitely find Lil Wayne in my iTunes library, but these fabulous little ladies of Watoto From the Nile do make a point. In fact, most of today’s hip-hop is overloaded with misogynistic lyrics and Lil Wayne is guilty. Their song “Letter to Lil Wayne,” is recorded over his track “Single” where their innocent voices challenge his inappropriate behavior and disrespect to women.  These girls who, by the ... Read More
“The Army didn’t want them there. The academy leadership didn’t want them there. The school’s faculty and cadets didn’t want them there. It seemed no one did–but in July 1976, 119 young women stood at the gates to the US Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, NY, to embark on a course that would change their lives, the academy and the Army, forever.”  After the 1975 legislation signed by President Ford, women were ...

Jake Quagliaroli, a 34 year old man from Indiana, was visiting PT's Showclub when the fun-filled night took a high-speed turn. According to his attorney, Syed Ali Saeed, Quagliaroli was hit in the face by a heavy bottomed shoe when an exotic dancer's "high kick maneuver" went very wrong. The impact resulted in four chipped teeth. As Saeed stated, "It was not a situation where it was a light tap on the face. It hit him with quite a bit of force. You can imagine the ... Read More
Perhaps you attended the huge rally last weekend in support of Planned Parenthood, like we did, and are looking for new ways to help. Well now you can support Planned Parenthood AND laugh your ass off all in one night! Or maybe even laugh at the GOP for threatening to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, our leading provider for sexual and reproductive healthcare. We Love You, a bi-monthly stand up comedy show in New York, is donating all the show's proceeds to ... Read More
Director Michel Gondry, known for directing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep has created an ironically hilarious video for The Living Sisters, “How Are You Doing.” The LA-based musicians, Inara George, Eleni Mandell, and Becky Stark have a very catchy sound and made a music video that seems to contradict the happy lyrics of “How Are You Doing?” The series of catastrophic events include burning your morning ...

I remember the first time I heard Ellie Goulding. That statement sounds like the makings of an “I remember the first time I heard the Beatles” story (well, they are all British). But seriously, I remember the first time I heard Ellie Goulding. It was in 2009 at Cafeteria NYC (you know, the restaurant on “Sex & the City” where Stanford finds out his boyfriend doubles as a male escort named “Paul”). Anyway, Ellie’s cover ... Read More
Luminous Kitchens has created an all-natural energy bar that tastes nothing like those stale bars you find in the grocery store. It’s animal free (except for honey, sorry strict vegans!), and completely free of refined sugar. It’s also 90% organic. A lot of people don’t usually equate healthy with tasty, but this bar would prove anyone wrong. It’s so soft it practically melts in your mouth, and natural sweeteners like brown rice syrup and ...

Reason #1092 we love Evil Pawn Jewelry: they named a necklace after our very own Director of Sales and Marketing. The bold and elegant Black Emily Necklace -- made from black gems framed by a Victorian lace black metal frame -- is "a reminder of people, places, and things that are far away from you but always with you." It usually retails for $65, but it's on sale until March 5th for ... Read More
