Okay, technically, the first 5 episodes are free and the rest are on Hulu Plus.  When I first heard about the show in college, I was told things like "Trust me, watch it. The whole thing. Read More
Somebody please bring me a paper bag, because I’m hyperventilating right now. Why? Because Jennifer Saunders has just released new info regarding the Absolutely Fabulous movie, and it’s big.  Earlier this year, Saunders confirmed that she had started writing the script for the movie spin-off of her hit sitcom.  She told the press in May that she was angling for the film to be released towards the end of 2015.

You may or may not be familiar with the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign. If you aren’t, it was a thing on Twitter recently where people tweeted pictures of themselves or their loved ones holding signs that said why we need diverse books.

Well, patriarchy, you’ve done it again! The emergence of yet another gender-based double standard has recently been illuminated by the blatant and callous fat-shaming of world renowned opera singer, Tara Erraught. The Irish mezzo-soprano sang Octavian in the Strauss Opera “Der Rosenkavalier” at the Glyndebourne Festival on Saturday night, and this was certainly not her first time at the rodeo. Read More
