This summer I discovered my new favorite blog, ManRepeller.com. The site pokes fun at trends, which Leandra Medine (the blog’s creator) deems as “man repelling”. For example, you won’t get laid if you’re wearing drop crotch harem pants, or shoes that look like grizzly bear paws. Karl Lagerfeld isn’t looking out for your sex life. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how you look at it) for me, I cannot afford ... Read More

Brooklyn-based artist, Bethany Jean Fancher, created her latest book Cleavage in an attempt to confuse the masses. Arranged in an accordion fold-out style, the book is comprised of images of "cleavage" that are actually photos of butt cleavage instead of boob cleavage. Fancher flawlessly creates the illusions of ample bosoms with strategically arranged limbs and props and pontificates on the subject of female objectification and sexuality. I was ... Read More

They may be well into their forties now, but the gals of Japanese super group Shonen Knife are still as cute as a bug’s ear and can’t stop rockin’. With yet another album under their well-accessorized belt, the Osaka outfit embarks on a full-fledged North American tour.
Shonen Knife was founded by two sisters, Naoko and Atsuko Yamano and their long-time friend Michie Nakatani in the early eighties as a counter-response to the ... Read More

The Republicans made a good choice with Sarah Palin. That’s the point Anna Holmes (editor of Jezebel.com) and Rebecca Traister (author of the forthcoming Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election That Changed Everything for American Women) consider in their op-ed in the New York Times this past Sunday. And it’s an interesting one to consider: what ladies do the Democrats have? For the group that is supposed to be more liberal and open, their main player ... Read More
Kamala Lopez is adamant. And we all should be. Just last Thursday was Women's Equality Day, but the thing is, we're still not equal. The fact is, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) has still not been ratified, and we need this shit in writing.
Ms. Lopez recently helped launch this campaign with the premiere of this brief video. She plans produce 20 short films over the next year in order to bring about the awareness necessary to finally get the ERA ratified.
For ... Read More
Kind of. Here's the opening of last night's Emmy Awards featuring plenty of awesome people. And by awesome I mean not only Betty and Jon, I'm talkin' Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Jane Lynch, the Glee crew, Joel McHale, and even Kate Gosselin making fun of herself. Top that off with a little Bruce Springsteen action and you have a hilarious intro. Bon appetit!

Rachel Kramer Bussel reads a lot of porn. Her fingers are in a lot of erotic pies, metaphorically speaking. She’s edited (or co-edited) too many erotic anthologies to count. Okay, I confess. I counted. There are thirty, thirty books full of dirty stories she has personally read, or written, and approved for your personal consumption and one-handed enjoyment.
The newest additions to her burgeoning list of erotic anthologies are ... Read More

Heavy Cream is a three girls for every boy (get it? The band has three girls and one guy) band from Nashville and their full-length debut Danny (Infinity Cat) is a sticky, sweet musical sundae made with equal parts Ramones, Be Your Own Pet, and the Runaways. Released only on vinyl and MP3, the songs on Danny sound like empty soda cans filled with thumb tacks. The guitars here are steady and understated, the drums are tight and cymbal heavy, and the vocals are ... Read More

Good boob tube news: Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of the East Village all-vegetarian standout Dirt Candy, will be competing this Sunday against Masaharu Morimoto himself in what may in fact be the first ever all-vegetarian contest in Iron Chef history. You may remember Amanda's name from an earlier post on recognizing women in the professional kitchen. And if you don't, that's totally cool because no one needs an excuse to watch the glory of Iron ... Read More
