That is, until he talks about his famous impressions. “There’s not one I haven’t perfected,” he says proudly of his status as the reigning king of imitation. In fact, long before the Virginia native made a name for...

  This weekend, Saoirse Ronan hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time in her career. Among the many highlights, she joined the women of SNL to sing a fun, cute song about some things that are not so fun and cute. In just three minutes, “Welcome to Hell” offers a crash course (and maybe, to some, a wake-up call) on the history of powerful men harassing and then silencing women. Dressed in metallic pinks and purples, Ronan, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, and Kate McKinnon lick lollipops,...

  Borderline personality disorder, despite entering the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders in 1980 and affecting 1.6% of the population each year, is a condition that is still not very well understood. Much of the medical community agrees that BPD isn’t even a particularly good name for the disorder. Its causes are unclear, but the symptoms include an extreme fear of abandonment, distorted self-image, intense emotional reactions, impulsive behavior, unstable relationships, and self-harm. And for some reason, I gravitated towards two dramatic portrayals of...
  This piece discusses suicide and contains spoilers for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Whenever I used to try and describe suicidal ideation, I always found myself at a loss for words. How can a person not suffering understand what it’s like to rather be dead than alive when their life is seemingly normal? It has become much easier for me to expound on those thoughts since my actual attempt. I was sitting in my private bathroom, my back against the cold porcelain toilet. I had tears coming out of my eyes,...

  The Marvel Universe is ever-expanding, but Netflix’s newest addition, The Punisher, is set to blow fans away. Viewers will be happy to recognize Deborah Ann Woll’s character, Karen Page, from Daredevil – in both shows she is in the position to be the trope “girl in the refrigerator,” but instead is the boss chick we all wish to be.
