Take two cups of 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure,' 1/2 cup of Rachael Ray, a heaping tablespoon of 'H.R. Pufnstuf' and 5 tabs of acid--then stir frantically. The result? IFC's new show, 'Food Party,' which is hosted by the irrepressible, bat-shit crazy (in the best way) Thu Tran. Her gonzo cooking class is filled with a cast of degenerate puppets who float around her cardboard sets, helping assemble sometimes-inedible masterpieces. It started as a series of web shorts ...

Growing up in North Carolina suburbia, I was no stranger to a full blown Halloween growing up. When I was in elementary school, the kid to adult ratio in my neighborhood was around 8 to 1, and come Halloween we ran things. Candy was power and the best part of the night was spreading out your winnings on the carpet after a long night and arranging trades before passing out drained from a sugar ... Read More
Clock these brand-spankin' new t-shirts from the good people of PETA. The tees range from cute neon to classic blue-and-gold, with catchy slogans to spare. Frankly, they had me at Club Soda Not Seals. Gotta love a t-shirt you can pun with. And at long last I understand why so many PETA ads feature naked chicks--the poor things were just waiting for some fresh threads to come along! These ones certainly fit the bill--not only are they adorable and spunky, but ... Read More

Sneaky Lady

BY Team Intern in General

                This goes out to all my Nike Dunk lovers, to the girls who covet their Pumas, jump for Jordan Brand, and would walk blocks in flip flops just to get a fresh pair of Married to the Mob sneaks. Introducing your new best friend: Female Sneaker Fiend , the only website written by and for women who love their tennies and want to know where to find the coolest new kicks. FSF is still launching, but they ... Read More
 No, not than you dirty bugger. I'm talking about the little things in life like triple coupon weekends at the grocery store and free cone day at Ben and Jerry's. Whereas most promotions involve giving away your email address, your precious Washingtons, or your soul, once in a while, an easy opportunity comes along. This is one of those opportunities where a little goes a long way: getting mammograms to women in need with the click of a mouse. You ... Read More

Windy Knitty

BY Web Intern in General

 I can't even begin to describe the awesome that is this wind powered knitting factory.  An oldschool sock knitting machine is hooked up to a windmill  to routinely bust out a classic knitted tube that feeds into a building. Every now and then the people inside section it off to turn into scarves to sell. Each one has a label saying how long it took to be created with solely wind energy and on what date it was completed. I want one! -Celeste Photo ... Read More

Sister Act

BY Team Intern in General

           Sports channels will be having a field day this Saturday, July 4th as Venus and Serena Williams meet up in their fourth all-sister Wimbledon final in eight years. These meet-ups come around as rarely as the Olympics and promise an equally dynamic and exciting show. You know the Williams women are willing to play their hearts out, but who will win? Take a look at their records and decide for yourself: -The sisters ... Read More
I'm not sure if you've heard, but this weekend marks the 233rd birthday of our lovely country. It's also New York's 400th birthday, so this year the fireworks are going to be bigger and better than ever! (And on the Hudson River!) We've all heard about the cruises and dinner 'specials' that costs hundreds to partake in, but here are some cheap and free fun ways to celebrate in NYC. Go see the fireworks, damnit. They're sure to be awesome this year. And what ... Read More

RIP Mrs. Slocombe.

BY Callie in General

The BBC reported that Bristish actress Mollie Sugden has passed away. I was just talking about 'Are You Being Served' this past weekend, I used to watch it when I was young with my Nana. I always loved how Mrs. S. matched her eyeshadow to her hair and no doubt she inspired my style a bit. I believe I am unanimous in this when I say, Mollie Sugden, you will be ... Read More

Pride Comes to India

BY Web Intern in General

After nearly two centuries of legalized discrimination, Indian homosexuals are finally seeing some rights. Today, only a few days after India's second Gay Pride Parade ever, their parliament overturned legislation that criminalizes consensual homosexual sex. Previously, one could get up to 10 years in prison if caught in the act (and that's longer than most rape or murder sentences). The law had been in place since colonial times, when the British outlawed all ... Read More
