No Doubt and I go way back. As in, Tragic Kingdom could very well be my favorite album ever (yep, I almost said it...it's that serious), and it's the oldest CD I own. I think I asked for it for Christmas or something when I was in 5th grade. It got scratched all to hell and only finally stopped working and started skipping about 2ish years ago. As in, the first song I ever sang at a talent show was Suspension Without Suspense from Return of Saturn. As in, when we ... Read More
Uh oh. Looks like California Gurls are no longer good enough for Russell Brand. And by that I mean, I'm sure he and Katy Perry are fine. Russell just tweeted this pic from the set of their remake of Arthur with the words, "At last. A bath from Helen Mirren. Never has getting clean been more dirty." It obviously worked to get the word out because I had no clue about the movie until this moment. Oh well, I guess everywhere's just a Love Ranch to Helen now. [image: ... Read More
If you like women, rock, and women in rock (which…let’s face it, who doesn’t?), then you should probably make it a point to head to Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker on August 18th. Why? Because they are presenting an NYC Women in Rock show, duh. Doors are at 6:30, show’s at 7. Get there fast for your $12 tickets; seems that this thing could fill up and there’s only so much room! The acts include: Hypodive, Jennings, Lily Sparks, Anna ... Read More
Get outside and stay awake this Thursday night, August 12th for what is said to be quite the spectacle of fireballs in the sky, the Perseid meteor shower!  Apparently the moon is gonna be M.I.A. so there won't be a lunar glare hindering our view.   The perseid meteor shower is caused by debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle.  So basically, Swift-Tuttle left a trail of dust and gravel behind after sailing through the inner solar system and when that debris ...

I'd put this in the category of "Eat Me"...but really it seems more like "Don't Eat Me" at this point.According to several news sources, Chinese company Synutra is under fire after three (and a recently-reported potential fourth) female babies have been diagnosed as prematurely pubescent after being fed the company’s baby formula. As in, babies with breasts. Synutra has claimed there to be no hormones or “illegal substances” of any sort in their ... Read More

This Saturday, August 14th, you better get your little bike-riding butts over to Brooklyn, McGolrick Park, to be exact, to snag a spot in the Hell Cat! all girl bike race. Registration starts at 2 PM in the center of the park, while the actual race, complete with 7 checkpoints and promises of ridiculous tasks to perform at each, will be at 3. For the $10 fee, you will score a sweet t-shirt and a spoke card. From what I hear, there will be some pretty bangin’ ... Read More
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 ...
