I’m going on vacation next week and as much as I’m dreading the six hour flight and having to deal with airport security, I haven’t given much thought to the possible embarrassment I might endure should I be randomly selected to go through an x-ray scanner.  Guess I better remember to pack some pasties! Made of the “highest quality of ... Read More
So, here’s the deal. Amanda Palmer, infamous member of The Dresden Dolls and now flourishing solo artist, has recently been liberated from her record label, Roadrunner Records. (…home to Nickelback.

The official press releases for Rodarte's collection for MAC Cosmetics hit the internet last week to outrage.

However, when window-shopping the other day, I happened to notice mannequins posing in a lingerie store’s window, all of whom had very visible ribs.
