Greetings! The end of August, in London, is actually quite chilly compared to the States. Like the true stereotype of London weather, practically my entire week there was marked with drizzly rain and overcast skies. However, I love to photograph on overcast days, so it was rather nice for me. My last day there, the clouds parted and there was no rain! I ran over to shoreditch (think williamsburg of london) to capture some london street style. Per usual, high res ... Read More
  Let me preface this review by saying I really liked this movie. “Going the Distance” is about a couple dealing with a long distance relationship in an economically unstable period. They meet in New York City and have what Erin (Drew Barrymore) assumes is just a one night stand, but Garrett (Justin Long) extends their tryst to breakfast. Garrett confesses that he just got out of a relationship, which relaxes Erin because she wants to keep things ... Read More

A disturbing New York Times article published this week brings to light a very scary reminder that the plight of feminism isn't over yet: poison gas attacks targeting all-girls schools in Afghanistan. According to an Afghan official, said attacks have been going on for two years, with two attacks occurring in the past week.   According to the article "The spokesman, Dr. Kargar Norughli, said his ministry and the World Health Organization had been ...

Personal music libraries are like fingerprints. Each is unique and fascinating in it’s own special way. Some are more refined around the edges, and others just down right awful.  Think you have nothing in common with your grandma’s taste in toe tapping tunes?  Or maybe you are looking to find the missing link between your 12 year old, bubble gum pop infested past, and your current romance with the latest Best Coast record?  What really is ...

Ima gotta admit–I think the world was a better place before this series of books and movies came out. OK, maybe I should limit it to the movies since I haven't read the books, and obviously that means just the first two since the hornet one is yet to arrive on our shores, but I can't imagine how augmenting my knowledge of this trilogy would change my mind. I was going to hold off on passing judgment until the third one came out, but with the the ABC News ... Read More

Stayfree or Stay Away?

BY debbie in Feminism

Oh, Canada! We love that the ad world  is finally realizing that, yup, women have a sense of humor too. And with the Old Spice ads they surely have a winner. This Canadian Stayfree ad, which I'm sure it's creators hope will be a major viral video, is a virus, alright, but more like an STD. Aside from the fact that a dude is lecturing me on what kind of maxi pad to use, what kind of hot date busts out with the phrase "I hate moisture! Don't you just hate ... Read More

TheSquareJaw.com

BY Emilie Branch in Arts

  TheSquareJaw.com is a site devoted to capturing the male gaze. I founded the site because I felt that male beauty, realized by women, is sort of absent from the photography canon. I’m striving to capture men; specifically, the way they look at women. Bruce Weber is my ultimate hero—his pictures of men are always so beautiful, though I wonder how the subject’s gaze would alter if if there were an underlying attraction. I think you can see ...

When people talk about sex it's usually in a very summer blockbuster sort of way. All ripped t-shirts and things throbbing and pulsating all over the place. It's always "the best I've ever had," or "the hottest I've ever had." What's left out is usually the most intimate parts, the little awkward details like those body fart noises that happen when two sweaty people mush up against each other, and how satisfying/painful the hood of a car can feel when you're ...
