Jake Quagliaroli, a 34 year old man from Indiana, was visiting PT's Showclub when the fun-filled night took a high-speed turn. According to his attorney, Syed Ali Saeed, Quagliaroli was hit in the face by a heavy bottomed shoe when an exotic dancer's "high kick maneuver" went very wrong. The impact resulted in four chipped teeth. As Saeed stated, "It was not a situation where it was a light tap on the face. It hit him with quite a bit of force. You can imagine the velocity at which the shoe must have come out when it hit him in the face. Read More
Perhaps you attended the huge rally last weekend in support of Planned Parenthood, like we did, and are looking for new ways to help. Well now you can support Planned Parenthood AND laugh your ass off all in one night!

We Love You, a bi-monthly stand up comedy show in New York, is donating all the show's proceeds to Planned Parenthood on Sunday, March 27th at 8PM. Read More
Director Michel Gondry, known for directing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep has created an ironically hilarious video for The Living Sisters, “How Are You Doing.” The LA-based musicians, Inara George, Eleni Mandell, and Becky Stark have a very catchy sound and made a music video that seems to contradict the happy lyrics of “How Are You Doing?” The series of catastrophic events include burning your morning breakfast and your house down, riding on an airplane during a storm, and going into labor.

I remember the first time I heard Ellie Goulding. That statement sounds like the makings of an “I remember the first time I heard the Beatles” story (well, they are all British). But seriously, I remember the first time I heard Ellie Goulding. It was in 2009 at Cafeteria NYC (you know, the restaurant on “Sex & the City” where Stanford finds out his boyfriend doubles as a male escort named “Paul”). Anyway, Ellie’s cover of Sam Sparro’s “Black and Gold” was playing in the restaurant. Read More
Luminous Kitchens has created an all-natural energy bar that tastes nothing like those stale bars you find in the grocery store. It’s animal free (except for honey, sorry strict vegans!), and completely free of refined sugar. It’s also 90% organic. A lot of people don’t usually equate healthy with tasty, but this bar would prove anyone wrong. It’s so soft it practically melts in your mouth, and natural sweeteners like brown rice syrup and honey create a very sweet taste. Since there are no added artificial flavors, the natural ingredients pop in your mouth. Read More

The first Government Women’s Report since 1963 was released today. The report focuses on women’s issues such as health, violence, and income. One of the main findings of the 97-page report was based on income inequality. Though women attend college at the same rates as men, and the amount of women in the workforce is almost equal, female labor is still valued at significantly less than their male counterparts. Women earn 75% of what men earn, regardless of level of education. As a result of this, women are more likely to live in poverty than men. Read More
Ice cream made from breast milk was banned from London gourmet shop the Icrecreamists, based on a complaint regarding a perceived health risk. The mother’s milk was screened at a leading medical clinic, pasteurized, and then served in a martini glass with lemon zest and vanilla for about $22.50.  The compliant was filed by two men, who reported it to the Westminster council. The legal response was a prompt removal of the ice cream based on the need to test it as “fit for human consumption.” The main concern was hepatitis, though according to the U.S. Read More
