Whether you're short or tall, this guide is perfect because now you can ... Read More

I know, I know, Easter is over. But making root beer in cupcake form is a year-round affair! Or at least, it is now. Plus it's finally kind of warming up, which means I start to crave soda-like beverages even more intensely, and what better way to celebrate spring than with cupcakes?

After 6 years of no Rilo Kiley, I had given up on ever hearing anything new from them again. While not all of rkives is brand spankin' "new" exactly, it's still a lovely treat for my ears that I welcomed with open arms. A collection of rarities and B-sides, the 16-song album has pretty much everything a Rilo Kiley fan could as for. The three leading tracks are strong, beginning with "Let Me Back In," a break-up-turned-love-song that lets Jenny Lewis' voice soar ... Read More
In honor of today's Proposition 8 hearings and tomorrow's scheduled arguments for and against the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, we found this clip to be more than appropriate. Leave it to Sophia to put it ever-so-eloquently. Blanche is bothered/upset/disturbed by the thought of her brother, Clayton, getting married to his boyfriend, Doug. Sophia shoots down the idea of religion opposing marriage rights and gives Blanche a short, sweet speech ... Read More
