First Run Females

BY Phoebe Magee in Eat Me

            Remember when Kathryn Bigelow won an Oscar and for a minute, the whole world was talking about women directing films?  It’s not a bad issue to return to, considering that female voices are still notably, even shockingly, absent in our theaters.  At the end of 2009, Indiewire published a set of dismal statistics regarding women in film over this last decade (the 00’s)—in ten years, over 200 films hit the 100 million dollar mark.

Some Pretty Cute Food

BY Nissa in Eat Me

I keep hearing on the news that the reign of cupcakes in the fad-food hierarchy is finally coming to an end. And while I think that the idea of trendy food is kind of dumb, I couldn't help being intrigued by an article which predicts that "Popsicles" and frozen treats will the next big thing.  The "Popsicle" was invented on accident in 1905 when an eleven year old accidentally left water, powdered soda and a stick outside on a cold night.

I cracked up when I saw this link to a spread in GQ where some of our favorite movie star dudes let it all hang out.

Day one. Adriana and I caught the 7:20am Amtrak to San Diego. Before reaching the entrance to the convention, we collected enough schwag to cloth a classroom full of Scott Pilgrim fans. I must admit the first day can be overwhelming. It's very hard for the brain to process a fantasy realm come to life. Seeing Ewoks in the bathroom and then meeting the cast of Star Trek the Next Generation was enough to make me wonder if I was on the holodeck. Can't wait for tomorrow! Watch out, Chun Li packs a mean spin kick! Rockin' Bajas serves a quesadilla big enough to split. Read More

Whose Country Is It, Anyway?

BY mikki in Eat Me

I’ve been following No Country for Young Women on Twitter for a while—the account is a great source of news about women with a career focus—information about things like wage gap research, sexual harassment law, and other feministy work issues. The other day I finally decided to check out their website, which turned out to be a multimedia art project of women telling their stories and how they are negotiating the competing demands of their lives. Wanting to know more, I sent off a few questions to Elena Rossini, the founder. Read More
