If you walked by any sort of newsstand this past week or spent any amount of time on the internet, you’ve seen the newest cover of TIME Magazine. If not, you should.The story at its most basic is this: 18-year-old Bibi Aisha ran away from her Taliban-connected husband’s and in-laws’ home, where she lived in a barn with livestock and was treated like a slave. About a year ago, her husband found her in Kandahar, and in the seemingly opposite of ... Read More

Happy Monday!

BY Intern Brittany J. in General

And what better way to start a week than with some of the most adorable cats and kittens that you ever did see. ...Right? ...?? Well, at least for me anyway. (WARNING...please do not die of cute. I don't need that kind of blood on my hands. I'm only an intern!) [all images courtesy of weareallmadeofkittens.tumblr.com; check out the site for more photos and especially the ... Read More
What happens when a super-talented badass makes a film about another super-talented badass? If you're lucky, the result is something like "Jean-Michel Basquiat, the Radiant Child," director Tamra Davis' new film about her friend, the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. While deeply emotional, "Radiant Child" resists mythologizing its subject, a self-taught graffiti artist and painter who rose to fame in the art world while challenging some of its most precious ...

Canadian bred duet Seth Smith and Nancy Urich, formally known as Dog Day, are gracing NYC with their presence on August 12th and 13th.  Deemed "the future of indie-rock" by Coke Machine Glow, Dog Day is made up of guitar, drums and vocals that shake the already fossilized structures of the underground music phenomenons before them.  Their last record, Concentration received stellar praise from all around and it most definitely deserves your ...

Let’s take a moment, close your eyes if you wish, and imagine a summer picnic without bees: no feeling of panic as a little yellow stinging machine lands on the tip of your nose, paralyzing you with fear. For many of us a bee-free, EpiPen-free summer sounds like a dream come true, but to others like Maryam Henein and George Langworthy there is a much bigger, drearier, picture that comes to mind at the thought of a bee-less existance. Henein and Langworthy ... Read More
But I can't help but be excited about the new Harry Potter movie coming out in November. It helps that the HP 7 trailer is super awesome looking (Hermione's jacket is a do-want), Team Starkid just came out with a Very Potter Sequel (Rita Skeeter and Dolores Umbridge have never been so cool), and Potter Puppet Pals now has their own channel with three new videos (sweet!) Oops. My inner fan-girl is showing. Have some videos and enjoy the utter ... Read More
  Word on the street is that Christina Aguilera can act. That means she's ready to leap frog over Mariah Carey (for the lackluster Glitter) and Britney Spears (for the forgettable Crossroads) in a bid to hit the heights not reached since Barbara Streisand gave the world (the remake of) A Star is Born! Given the loopy premise–that this girl's DREAM is to dirty dance at a failing LA nightclub–I'd be ready to dismiss Burlesque in a hot minute except ... Read More
That building would be the Catholic Church.  Rice was never exactly the follower the Catholic Church dreams of.  She’s known primarily for either the seriously sexual Vampire Chronicles (the first of which was written the year Stephanie Meyer was born), or the seriously soporific Sleeping Beauty Trilogy (a BDSM series that never gets any more BDSMish than repetitive spankings).  Then there’s also that series on witches in there ...

It's official...one of our favorite BUST-y ladies, Diablo Cody, has sold a pilot to Fox! So far, the only thing anyone knows is that it is called The Breadwinner and it's a comedy. I can only imagine where it could possibly go from there. My mind is running laps with a title like that. Also also also, she is in the process of working on a repeat performance with Juno director Jason Reitman which will be a film starring Charlize Theron (nice!!) called Young Adult. ... Read More

Prop. 8 Rejected!

BY Nissa in Feminism

Today, in a huge win for gay rights, Federal Judge Vaughn Walker overturned Prop. 8, ruling that it was indeed unconstitutional. Like many advocates of gay rights, I have been waiting all morning to learn the outcome of this decision.  This is a great victory for civil rights, and for all people who believe in equality. Supporters of Prop. 8 have claimed that they will work to appeal the ruling. Rachel Maddow says it best: You need to a flashplayer enabled ... Read More
