Leymah Gbowee just might be the most insanely awesome woman you've never heard of.

  Summer is certainly here, which means the music festival season is upon us.  If merely thinking about these all-day events makes your ears ring, feet sore, and eyelids sag, you aren't alone.  Still, all music fans can agree that there are a few can't-miss fests that are worth enduring. The music fest at the top of my to-do list is  coming up this Friday and Saturday in Berea, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland.  Now in its fourth year, Berea Fest features every genre from acoustic folk-punk sing-a-longs to the grinding sounds of thrashcore.

(500) Days of Summer

BY Lisa in General

It's not very often the male and female leads in a movie are equally crush-worthy, making the sum of both parts totally off the swoon charts. Well, I got a sneak peek at (500) Days of Summer and lemme tell you what, it's hard to decide where to rest your eyes cause the cuteness between Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a constant battle. If Away We Go didn't satiate your uber-indie movie needs, this romantical dramedy absolutely will. Read More

It may sound grossly unhygienic at first but no worries as it is both cleaned and lined with a barrier.
