Without a doubt, my new favourite band ever. A feminist punk rock collective inspired by Bikini Kill writing anti-Putin songs (“Putin has pissed himself”) and performing in guerrilla-style costumes in Red Square itself. And to think, my colleagues in the music press used to scorn Riot Grrrl … From Big Think: The following story details how one group of girls have taken on Putin. Other revolutionaries take note. Here’s how you can do ... Read More
Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, made a shocking announcement Tuesday afternoon--they're ending their longtime partnership with Planned Parenthood. SGK's Facebook page has been flooded with reactions since then. Nancy G. Brinker, the organization's founder and ambassador, uploaded a video meant to give "straight talk" about the controversial decision.  The choice to siphon most ... Read More
Ugh, all the shop windows are reminding me that Valentine's day is coming up soon. It's the stupidest holiday ever except for the fact that it provides the perfect excuse to order a heart-shaped pizza for one and buy yourself a present. Ever since I stumbled upon this lil gem on tumblr, I've been hellbent on getting one of my own.   This would look perfect hung right above my bed to let everyone who enters my room know what exactly is up. I'm also really ... Read More

What's Your Nude is a new campaign set to launch February 1st that hopes to send a message to bra manufacturers and retailers. Tara Raines, the psychologist who started the movement, is fed up with the lack of diversity offered to women of color in the lingerie department at major stores ... Read More

Treat Yo'self!

BY Intern Caroline in General

I hate to be cliche, but periods suck! Between the cramps, cravings, and mood swings, I'm like a hormonal werewolf during That Time of the Month. Since I'm way too busy to roam the woods at night hoping to avoid innocent bystanders, I usually make a mad dash to the nearest CVS at the first sign of shark week in order to stock up on remedies/chocolate. But wouldn't it be rad if somebody knew when shit was about to get real and mailed me a magical package meant to ... Read More

Bummer Shop

BY Intern Caroline in General

I think the only thing worse than a break up is healthy bread. Break ups are wretched! After things go sour, your own home becomes a nightmare hellscape full of shit from the better times that now makes you binge-watch Downton Abbey, crying into your ice cream for poor Mary. She just wants to be her own person! Gifts, mementos, and tokens that once served as reminders of a beautiful union between two people become detritus blocking the road to Move-Onville. I'm ...

Meet our newest office crush: youtube user ycfan1985. This dude loves his goddamn Yankee Candles!  You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video  I sincerely want to bro down with this guy. He seems to genuinely appreciate the details. He doesn't make the typical "haul" video: each scent comes with a childhood memory or imagined scenario described in vivid detail. I feel like if we were buds, he'd notice when I got a haircut or new perfume ... Read More

If you're anything like me, you love cats and NPR, (and you need to quit jocking my swag because cats and NPR are/have always been my thing…) so listen up because you're going to enjoy this. Shanthony Exum, better known as Miss Eaves, is currently writing six songs in as many weeks. She's asking fans to vote on the topic of each song on her Facebook.   Last week she brought us this gem about cats: You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
In "Well, That Was Inevitable" news, Rick Perry announced today that he's dropping his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. His campaign started out strong but faded fast after the politician's dismal performances in debates where it seemed like he couldn't remember the basic bullet points of his platform or form complete sentences.  After his homophobic-rant of a campaign ad disgusted Americans from all ends of the political spectrum earlier this ...
