It's time for the 7th Annual Fun-A-Day show! If you haven't heard about it already the challenge was to pick a project (it could be baking cupcakes, knitting scarves for puppies or making cartwheels) and do it every day during the month of January*. Why did they chose January this year? Because it's a freezing-cold, long-ass month were people tend to prefer eating pizza and watching Jersey Shore then do anything mentally stimulating. Once the month was over you could submit your project to one of the several shows, showing right now, around America, like Philadelphia, San Diego and Portland. Read More
 I don't enjoy watching things like Animal Planet. While the footage is usually pretty neat, the narration totally kills it for me. So boring! Enter the YouTube series Randall's Animals. A sample line from "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger": "Here's a house full of bees. You think the honey badger cares? It doesn't give a shit. It goes right into the house of bees to get some larvae. How disgusting is that? It eats larvae!" I think I've found my remedy. Read More

Author HEY! from the blog you're welcome has written a really touching and strikingly readable post on why she's fat positive. It's practically a mini-manifesta. Here's an excerpt: "When I tell people I’m fat, the most common reaction is panic: they assume I’m calling myself ugly, and they feel pressured or compelled to disabuse me of that notion. But people clearly notice my size all the time. Servers at restaurants notice it when they seat me. People on the bus notice it when they decide when and whether to make an empty seat available for me. Read More

Oh man, I know this is old, but I needed to post this genius sketch by Kristen Schaal and John Stewart from last week. Kristen stops by the Daily Show to school Stewart on the "rainbow of rape's" and explains how the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act should cut funding for abortions unless they are a result of "forcible" rape. While I laughed out loud, it is sad to know that many people in this country would agree with her outrageous claims of "rapish" rape not being rapey enough. Sigh.   The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c Rape Victim Abortion Funding www. Read More
I wasn't expecting to love ex-X-Ray Spex’s Poly Styrene's new release, My Virtual Boyfriend, quite as much as I do. By the unfortunate mathematics of aging and rock'n'roll, it's rare that a past their prime rocker releases new and relevant material. The fireball that is Ms. Poly Styrene has failed to disappoint. The single is a far cry from the fierce caterwaul of 1977's Oh Bondage! Up Yours!.  The energy's different: it's frenetic, disorganized, and utterly bored with the technical sludge the singer has to wade through in order to get close to her virtual boyfriend. Read More
