Did the Monday morning return to work leave you feeling a bit down? Never fear my friends, thanks to the beauty of YouTube, the universe has blessed us with mindless entertainment at the click of a mouse. Do you consider yourself a crazy cat person? (Shhh...your secret is safe with me). Even if felines aren't your cup of tea, you can't help but laugh at this montage of ridiculous cat clips, set to the rap-tastic stylings of BoyfriendsInc. WARNING: You might want ... Read More

Class Actress? Class Act

BY Lisa in Music Stuff

Any band that cites Madonna’s first album as a major influence is gonna get a listen from me. And in the case of the forthcoming EP from Class Actress (it hits ears Feb. 9), another and another and another. After totally falling for the Brooklyn trio’s throwback synthiness and lead singer Elizabeth Harper, who has a voice like buttah, I had to check them out at the Highline Ballroom last night, where they opened for Au Revoir Simone. They took the ... Read More
  In the new year we all stock up on new supplies: organizers, planners, and the usual calendar. Lauren Marsella sent us a neat little calendar today that's a bit unconventional, funny, and snarky. Instead of typical photos of puppies or canonical art pieces, Marsella has drawn portraits of dead celebrities.   Celebs are featured in the month he or she took the big sleep. Featuring some of the late and greats: Bea Arthur, Michael Jackson and John Updike ... Read More
Our good friend and frequent photography contributor, the brilliant Danielle St. Laurent, is a worldwide traveler who pops in and out of international airports like they were the corner candy shop. (Weird metaphor, I know; I'm just trying to say she's in them alot!) Anyway, on a recent trip to Nairobi, Danielle spotted the following in a tiny Nairobi airport: What the WHAT?? That's a giant blow-up poster featuring BUST, Self, BUST, and Ebony! We're like SPAM over ... Read More
It's an old joke that the G spot is a myth, but now kill- joy scientists in Britain claim it doesn't exist!After carrying out the widest ranging research ever undertaken into the elusive G, the team at King's College London reckon the sexual pleasure zone could be a figment of some women's imaginations - or something dreamed up by magazines or sex therapists.The way they carried out the research involved identical twins. Identical twins share all their genes, ... Read More
  Have you ever had a dream where Kathleen Hanna asks you to house-sit for her, and the minute you know the coast is clear, you seek out her private diaries and personal letters, make a heap of it all on the floor and jump into it, as you would a pile of leaves? No? Um, me neither. But if you ever wanted to do something similar, you should head to the NYU library and check out the donation of old zines, and other such writings that she's added to ...

OMG, Jane Fonda twittered this and I missed it? "Sean Penn brought Mickey Avalon (@mickeyave) to our xmas party. He sang "Do The Jane Fonda" and I danced. Fun!!!"

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video photo by aliya naumoff (originally shot for ... Read More

Yep, He Did

BY Phoebe Magee in General

Cameras have already captured between the Obamas a level of documented physical affection perhaps unprecedented in American political history.  The President and First Lady are unusual in their apparent willingness to reveal the inner workings of their relationship--or, in their refusal to cover them.  Michelle Obama wants the press and America to know that marriage is hard work;  White House photographs of the couple are downright flirty; and ...

Ok, this is the most bizarre tribute to The Golden Girls EVER. And possibly the weirdest thing you'll see today.  Artist James Kuhn can paint his face to look like pretty much anything. From Shrek, to a human hot dog face, his work shows a deeper dedication to lipstick, powder and paint than Marilyn Manson (who, incidentally I think he has also imitated). What you are seeing here though is THREE GOLDEN GIRLS covering his entire head. Watch the video too, for ... Read More
As if working mothers don't carry enough guilt with them as they set off for the office every day - imagine how the good hardworking mums of London felt when they saw this poster emblazoned on the side of the capital's famous red buses - 'CAREER WOMEN MAKE BAD MOTHERS' ... Apparently it was designed to promote the effectiveness of billboard advertising. Hmmmm. I bet the ad exec who thought that one up didn't have two little kids at home and a whole lotta bills to ...
