  Say hello to the Miracle Fruit.  The NYT featured this miracaculous little berry in it's dining and wine section today.  This tiny fruit has the power to alter our tastebuds, "rendering lemons as sweet as candy." Research shows that the berry has an active protein called miraculin which binds with the taste buds and, acting as a sweetness inducer, makes acidic foods taste sweet. The berry, Synsepalum dulcificum, is native to West ... Read More

Punk Pioneers

BY Team Intern in Music Stuff

This book was fell into my lap and captured my attention like an old family album or school year book. Punk Pioneers, a photography book shot by Jenny Lens, doesn't read like a coffee table book but more like a yearbook, given the, at least to this girly who's into punk, famous faces in it. The Ramones, the Screamers, Debbie Harry, Van Halen and Joan Jett are in it. The Sex Pistols even make an appearance. Lens's images have a causual air about them, the subjects ... Read More

Dear Sweden,I would like to thank you for giving the world some of the coolest artists ever.  I’ve started many a girls-night-out with an ABBA or Ace of Base sing-a-long.  And now I can add a new name, Lykke Li, to my list of favorite Swedish artists.

Tribad to the Bone

BY Team Intern in General

Thanks to Callie's post yesterday, a hot subject around the office is queer sex and virginity.What, did you think it was all sunshine, daisies, and tampon cases round here? Specifically, we were curious as to how lesbians lose their innocence. Miss Calisha asked me, the unlikely resident expert, for my opinion. I gave her the definition that my coterie works with, and that I feel is most appropriate: any physical actions with the intention of orgasm performed by ... Read More
