BY Tara in General

So remember the blog post heard 'round the world a while ago that sent a swarm of commentors into a tizzy over a woman's right/obligation/choice to shave or not to shave her nether regions? well, in that same vein, this is the first of an on-going blogroll of updates to keep you, the readers, informed as I take the plunge and have baby bush de-fuzzed for good via laser hair removal. while i respect every gals decision on the matter (because i personally believe ...

Your Mom

BY Laurie in General

Thanks to Slut Machine over at Jezebel for posted the latest video by our favorite Long Island mom impersonator and writer John Roberts (directed by Clay Weiner). If you've never seen him, check him on Youtube for The Christmas Tree, or Jackie & Debra, My Son is Gay— they are all hilarious! This new one is particularly good, and is a pretty close replica of what will be going on at my house this Sunday. "Listen to me, I told ya, I don't want ... Read More

boys need girls..

BY Tara in General

Ya know how boys loooove their time "with the guys" so much? an idea that frustrates women to no end. Not because we (the ladies) don't devour our girl time just as much, but while most gals tend to crave the attention of a special significant other to feel fulfilled, guys seem content with singledom and hangin' with the boys.  Well, i've decided that boys NEED girls in a more severe way than I ever thought possible. I'm sure of it. Because this is ... Read More

BY debbie in General

I saw Flight of the Conchords on Tuesday Night, & Laurie saw them last night. The thing that both of us noticed is just how insanely crazy these guys make the ladies, turning even adult women into 8-year-old girlfans w—crying, screaming, and laughing embarassingly loudly at jokes they've already heard a million times.What really cracks me up in the Jemaniac/Brettaholic community is the tribute videos made by random girlies all around the world...Case in ...

This Just In:

BY Team Intern in General

 (Photo by Reuters)Can you imagine that in this day and age it took a man two years, one sexual discrimination lawsuit and a change in California law to win the right to use his wife's last name? Thanks to the perseverence of the Diana and Micheal (nee Buday) Bijon, with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, Californian men now have the option to take their wives name in marriage-a privilege still verboten in 40 other states.

Mr. Lonely

BY Laurie in General

Harmony Korine’s new film “Mr. Lonely” opens this weekend, and it’s pretty good. Starring Diego Luna as a Michael Jackson impersonator, it’s probably the artiest art film I’ve seen in a while. The story follows Michael in Paris, where he meets a Marilyn Monroe impersonator played by the always amazing Samantha Morton. They go to Scotland to live on a commune with a bunch of other impersonators, and tragedy ensues. There is also a ... Read More
