That's How I Roll

BY Web Intern in General

The warm weather is a' comin'-- time for me to bust out my rad bicycle! I can only bring myself to ride it to the grocery store and back during the winter, when my neighborhood is basically a frozen tundra, but in the summer I'm all bike all the time. And I know I'm not alone: thanks to the green movement and cities becoming more bicycle friendly by the minute (for starters, New York is making good on its promise to add 200 miles of bike lanes to the city in three years, and several cities are trying to launch bike share programs), ridership is way up in urban areas.

Every once in a while there is a person that makes me wonder if they are seriously just waking up in the morning a thinking to themselves 'hmmmm, how can i best aggravate volatile situations, wreak havoc on the world and generally behave like a massive ass?' I'm not talking about those people who consider it some sort of aristotelian duty to annoy all they come across (ahem, Dad). I'm talking about a person who seems to want to murder basic decency. For me, today, that person is Pope Benedict XVI. Read More
The beloved, cherished children's book Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, originally published in the 60s, is being adapted into a movie of the same title. We all remember the classic because we were just like Max as a child; being sent to bed with no supper for just being a kid and creating a world to escape to. Without eating, our mind can create some pretty vivid stuff, as Max did with by creating the Wild Things and their world. Check the trailer to the movie! Where The Wild Things Are is due out this fall, October 16th, a year after it was originally scheduled to open. Read More

Separated at Birth?

BY Laurie in General

I saw the new Monsters v. Aliens this weekend and thought it was pretty amazing. Not just for kids, I swear! And it's in 3D. Is it just me, or does Gallaxhar (from Monsters vs. Aliens) remind you of Mojo Jo Jo (Powerpuff Girls)? I've always loved outrageously sinister villians, and they did a fun job with the squid like Gallaxhar. Even tho he is a squid, he has a monkey face, just like MJJ, and an extremely large brain.
