Barnes has cultivated one of the most impressive art collections in America. Hosting a rich collection of 181 Renoirs, 69 Cézannes, 59 Matisses, 46 Picassos. No doubt, a weighty collection of canonical, eye-widening names. Impressive, yes. Expensive as hell? You got it. So ... Read More
Last Wednesday, Spain passed a new law that lifted restrictions on abortions, including allowing 16 and 17 year olds to attain abortions without parental consent. According to an article by the Associated Press on MSNBC.com: “Under the previous law, which dates back to 1985, Spanish women could in theory go to jail for getting an abortion outside certain strict limits — up to week 12 in case of rape and week 22 if the fetus is ...

Oh Taylor Swift.  I hated you during the onslaught of "Love Story;" hated your complete disregard for and desecration of literature ("Cause you were Romeo, I was the Scarlet Letter?"  WHAT IS THAT? It. Doesn't. Make. Sense. Have you read either of those books?  Do you know they both end badly and are completely inappropriate for the subject you're singing about?  Do you know hundreds of young girls are going to read those books expecting some ...

Despite the charms of the two boys behind me in the balcony yelling, "don't be a bitch" at various members of the band as they made banter with the audience, Wild Beasts expressed being *most* excited about the two NYC dates scheduled on their first ever tour of North America, which ends with their show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow (2/28.) Coming all the way from their native UK, the boys travelled through Europe and Australia just to come here and ... Read More

In an effort to cut down on teenage smoking in France, an organization called Droits des Non-fumeurs (Non-smokers Rights) is launching a new ad campaign targeting young people.  The tagline: "To smoke is to be a slave to tobacco."  Innocent enough- it even makes sense.  But apparently the only images they could think of to pair with the slogan are these ridiculously offensive images of young boys and girls sucking on the cigarette dicks of creepy ...

Figure skating is one of those Olympic sports that draws a huge viewership. As such, it leads to a sense of rivalry in the fans (I still feel Michelle Kwan was robbed by Tara Lipinski in the ’98 Games, but that’s neither here nor there) but this year is one where everyone is worth rooting for. Most discussed so far is probably Joannie Rochette—a second-time Olympian from Canada—whose mother died unexpectedly on Sunday. Despite this blow, ... Read More
 This whole time, women haven’t been allowed to work on U.S. submarines. But finally, the Pentagon is moving to end a ban that prohibits women from serving on these U.S. Navy underwater vessels, several media outlets are reporting. Defense Secretary Robert M.
