Those of us trapped in the suburban outposts of NYC could only dream of that shining city where a mystery seemed to lurk around every corner. Hands up, who else planned to run away to a museum? Fans of E.L. Konisburg's classic and those who love of New York City history, a taste for mystery and appreciation of kickass, multitalented teen heroines should try the Kiki Strike series by Kirsten Miller. Ananka Fishbein seems like a hopeless case, with poor grades and rotten self esteem despite her brilliant mind and bookish tendencies. Read More

When I was a kid, my eccentric and most creative aunt in Oregon hung these visually appealing, but somewhat disturbing framed prints of little kids with big eyes, and sad faces in her bathroom...  So, every time I had to use the loo at her house, I felt these "Keane" images were staring directly at me.  Sometimes I would try to imagine what was going on in these big-eyed, little kids world, and why they were all so sad?    It seems that I'm not the only one fixated with those imagery.

Vogue Italia!

BY Team Intern in General

   Alright busty ladies.  I got my issue last Friday, and I am so pleased. I have poured over the pages and even managed to translate some of the editorial (woohoo for 6 years of Latin!) I’m just pleased with everything, from the piece on the Obamas (I’ve got a total girl crush on Michelle) to seeing a big pic of Lena Horne.  Maybe I’ll write a thank you letter to Franca Sozzani because I’m seriously thinking this woman has really stirred things up with this magazine.

That is the opposite of a movie to watch outside with drunk people. Read More
