Sometimes I really hate feeling so much. As a recently divorced lady, I don't want to feel a goddamn thing right now. No, thanks. I'd rather work. That's it. So when I took my seat at Radio City Music Hall to see Explosions in the Sky on April 6, I had no idea that for the next hour and 15 minutes the past several years with my ex-huz would flash in my mind like a dusty old film projector spinning reels of the good, the bad, the end. Yes, Explosions' ... Read More

  Literally started LOLing when I saw this one! Tina Fey’s daughter, Alice is photographed mid-stride looking fly as hell. Tina, on the other hand, looks like she’s a little jealous of her daughter’s swagger or is pissed at the paparazzi for attempting to crush the hustler spirit. Now this photo has become it's own internet meme -- been edited and morphed into all different scenarios. My personal fav is Alice sporting a top hat and cane. I ... Read More

I just love what Merrill Garbus is doing with her band, TUne-Yards. With her way out tribal sounds and kooky face paints, the energy is just fantastic!

You are bootyful!

BY Intern Jessica W. in Style

Curve Appeal (http://curveappeal.tumblr.com) is a blog, which argues, curves are beautiful too!  Many of the pictures are self-submitted by readers, along with their measurements or are found images that have made their way on to the site. ...

You guys, do you know about Who Took the Bomp?, the new Le Tigre documentary? I was lucky enough to check out its New York premiere last week at MoMA and I have three words for you: go see it. If you can watch it in a theater full of like-minded riot grrrls, even better. If not, nab the DVD when it comes out in June and relive those blissful, dance-ridden years in the privacy of your own home, where no one will look at you strangely if you try to emulate the ...

The first thing I noticed about the movie Some Days Are Better Than Others, is that no one's  seemed to have heard of it. When I brought the screener disc over to a friend's house for movie night it was met with, "huh?" and "ohhhh, I think I remember hearing about that" but no one had any idea what the movie was about, and you know what, we kind of still don't. But that's okay! Carrie Brownstein is in it and she could star in a two hour movie ... Read More
