At this week's Converse: Three Artists, One Song show in Brooklyn, there were incredible mash-up performances by Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend, and Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast. The unlikely combination of sweet ballad singing, rapping, and poppy/punky guitar playing made for an incredible summer song that anyone would love, and should push "California Gurls" out of the water. Don't believe me? Listen to "All Summer" below. You need ... Read More
  Ladies, apparently we’ve been consuming delicious sugary treats without stopping to consider guy's feelings. Even worse, we’ve been tainting them with our cutesy designs and confections. But now thanks to the New York cupcake company Butch Bakery, men can satisfy their sugar tooth without having to jeopardize their masculinity. Owner David Arrick refuses to serve anything that looks remotely like the "frilly, pink-frosted, ... Read More
Did reading last issue's Riot Girl History by Marisa Meltzer make you nostalgic for days of yore? Or maybe you've been reading the Bikini Kill archive, and are suddenly possessed by the desire to share your own feminist punk rock story?  Get our your Sharpie and your camera so you can contribute to "Soul Revolution," a video installation that's being created in conjunction with Girls to the Front, Sarah Marcus's book about her own riot grrrl experience. (Yes, ... Read More

Au Revoir

Baskin Robbins announced that it will discontinue five of its 31 famous flavors including Campfire S'mores, Apple Pie a La Mode, Caramel Praline Cheesecake, Superfudge Truffle, and French Vanilla- wait FRENCH VANILLA? What? Retirement makes sense for oddball creations like 'Miami Ice' (named for the tv show) and 'Saxy Candidate' (named for Bill Clinton), but it seems even the classics aren't ... Read More
 Avocado is super high in fat. So high in fat, that restaurants like to exclude it from the nutritional info because the caloric and fat content is just that high.  But the fat content in avocados is strictly monosaturated fat - which turbo charges your bodies ability to absorb vitamins and boosts your metabolism. A small avocado averages 45 grams of fat. But, don't let this number deter you from consuming this super healthy food. Instead, try to eat an ... Read More
I’m a wanna-be foodie; absolutely love reading food blogs and cookbooks. But as a college student I never really have the time nor the ingredients to make much of anything. That and I have a horrible habit of making things and never eating them myself. I just feed them to everyone else. So I mostly just content myself with drooling over the scrumptious food photos and recipes. Here are some of my favorite foodie blogs that are just chock full of pictures and ... Read More
Well, there's no pool. But there are the Murder City Devils, who I can't be more happy to see playing a FREE show after five years of not touring at all (they broke this back in Feb). And there's also tons of lawn chilling, dodge ball and swarms of sweaty, happy people. And its free, so you don't have much of an excuse for not going if you happen to be in New York. East River State Park, 90 Kent Ave at North 9th St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (thepoolparties.com). Sun ... Read More
Made in Dagenham, the new film coming out this fall starring Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins and Miranda Richardson is so amazingly feminizle, I guarantee you are going to love it. Based on a true story about a group of female factory workers in England in 1968 who fight for equal pay, it's full of inspiring moments, not to mention death defying bouffants and to-die-for outfits. Look for coverage from us in the fall, and check out the trailer here: You need to a ... Read More
The New York Times has a blog post up today about how exercise science has ignored women. The piece cites New Zealand researcher Dr. David Rowlands, who did a study on male cyclists in 2008 that found they exhibited a 4% performance gain if they ate protein and carbs after workouts, as opposed to just carbs. He theorized that the protein repair muscle damage and aided in processing the carbs as fuel. The study aligned with other similar studies and the word went ... Read More
