Did reading last issue's Riot Girl History by Marisa Meltzer make you nostalgic for days of yore? Or maybe you've been reading the Bikini Kill archive, and are suddenly possessed by the desire to share your own feminist punk rock story?  Get our your Sharpie and your camera so you can contribute to "Soul Revolution," a video installation that's being created in conjunction with Girls to the Front, Sarah Marcus's book about her own riot grrrl experience. (Yes, the 90s are the new 60s.)  Click...

  Wine and boobs?! What could be more fun? This weird but intriguing gag gift is sold by "Baron Bob" with the following creepy description:  Take a bottle of wine, a mixed drink or even a fifth of your favorite hard stuff to the movies, concerts, ball games, even PTA meetings. Sporting a rack that will turn heads and serving a beverage that will have guys standing in line for a sip of your secret stash!   It seems to be a more flattering partner to the "Beer Belly,"...

Baskin Robbins announced that it will discontinue five of its 31 famous flavors including Campfire S'mores, Apple Pie a La Mode, Caramel Praline Cheesecake, Superfudge Truffle, and French Vanilla- wait FRENCH VANILLA? What? Retirement makes sense for oddball creations like 'Miami Ice' (named for the tv show) and 'Saxy Candidate' (named for Bill Clinton), but it seems even the classics aren't safe!...

 Avocado is super high in fat. So high in fat, that restaurants like to exclude it from the nutritional info because the caloric and fat content is just that high.  But the fat content in avocados is strictly monosaturated fat - which turbo charges your bodies ability to absorb vitamins and boosts your metabolism. A small avocado averages 45 grams of fat. But, don't let this number deter you from consuming this super healthy food. Instead, try to eat an avocado every day. Smother it...
I’m a wanna-be foodie; absolutely love reading food blogs and cookbooks. But as a college student I never really have the time nor the ingredients to make much of anything. That and I have a horrible habit of making things and never eating them myself. I just feed them to everyone else. So I mostly just content myself with drooling over the scrumptious food photos and recipes. Here are some of my favorite foodie blogs that are just chock full of pictures and recipes! Now, since I have...

Well, there's no pool. But there are the Murder City Devils, who I can't be more happy to see playing a FREE show after five years of not touring at all (they broke this back in Feb). And there's also tons of lawn chilling, dodge ball and swarms of sweaty, happy people. And its free, so you don't have much of an excuse for not going if you happen to be in New York. East River State Park, 90 Kent Ave at North 9th St, Williamsburg,...

Made in Dagenham, the new film coming out this fall starring Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins and Miranda Richardson is so amazingly feminizle, I guarantee you are going to love it. Based on a true story about a group of female factory workers in England in 1968 who fight for equal pay, it's full of inspiring moments, not to mention death defying bouffants and to-die-for outfits. Look for coverage from us in the fall, and check out the trailer here: [video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0LF-F1QNAw 425x344]...

One of the things I remember most about being a kid in the summer were the endless days at the local pool, letting my hair turn green from the chlorine as my friends and I pretended to be mermaids. We would let our hair down and try to keep our feet together as if we had mermaid tails. If I could go back in time knowing that I actually could have a real mermaid tail, I would be the coolest kid at the pool! Here's...

We wait so long for summer.. hot days, warm nights and vacation time. But there is one thing that comes along with that hot weather that sucks, the summertime roach invasion. I live in the charming little city of Richmond, Virginia, where overgrown plants hug the sides of the super old house I live in. And off those plants, giant roaches known sometimes as water bugs trickle into my house at night to eat  coveted floury goods and hide among my also super old and...
Once upon a time, we were taking a glimpse at “The World of Tomorrow.” We were stuffing the most logical items of which we could think into a time capsule; the words of Albert Einstein, minutes catalogued by the arms of Mickey Mouse, stacks of Life Magazine, seeds for growth and nourishment. We were showcasing the excitement of air conditioning, nylon, color photos, the View-Master, and Smell-O-Vision. Once upon a time, we were seeing what the future had to offer at the World’s Fair.On September...
