Ladies, apparently we’ve been consuming delicious sugary treats without stopping to consider guy's feelings. Even worse, we’ve been tainting them with our cutesy designs and confections. But now thanks to the New York cupcake company Butch Bakery, men can satisfy their sugar tooth without having to jeopardize their masculinity. Owner David Arrick refuses to serve anything that looks remotely like the "frilly, pink-frosted, ... Read More
I’m completely obsessed with female villains. In fact, when The White Witch (Tilda Swinton) slapped the little boy in the first Chronicles of Narnia movie, I actually started laughing and clapping in the theater. But my obsession all started with the original bad ass bitches of Disney. Let’s face it--they were so much more interesting than those stupid, singing princesses. They were also wayyy more dark and sinister than many of their male counterparts ... Read More
                         I’m going on vacation next week and as much as I’m dreading the six hour flight and having to deal with airport security, I haven’t given much thought to the possible embarrassment I might endure should I be randomly selected to go through an x-ray scanner.  Guess I better remember to pack some pasties! Made of the “highest quality of ... Read More
Last Wednesday, the hilarious and equally unpredictable, Tracy Morgan appeared on The Tonight Show and proved exactly why we made him our April/May cover dude.    After telling Jay about how experiencing Colin Powell’s warm embrace moved him to tears, Tracy weighed in on the now infamous Gibson tapes.   “They’re selling like hot cakes in Compton,” he says.   [Actually, it turns out an album of 15 Mel-inspired ...

This Thursday, Good Vibrations will be celebrating the birthday, book release, and 20 year anniversary of sexologist, Dr. Carol Queen with a raunchy, over-the-top tribute at their Polk Street Gallery in San Francisco.   The party will kick off with a presentation and reading from the new edition of Dr. Queen’s book, Exhibitionism for the Shy. The dirty blues duet Keep Sweet and burlesque musician Kitten on the Keys will then set the mood with some ... Read More
Do you like bicycles, art, and weird shit?  What a silly question, of course you do!  That said, you’re going to want to attend the silent auction benefit, "Bizarre! Weird Bikes! Weird Art!”  (plus, I think it’s common knowledge that anything with three exclamation points in the title is guaranteed to be awesome).  It all goes down tonight from 8-midnight @ Brooklyn Fireproof Bar (119 Ingram St.).    Not only ...

 It’s said that a woman’s purse contains all sorts of mysterious items that baffle the male species.  So imagine a dude’s reaction upon finding a clitoris inside (if he’s completely baffled, perhaps you should do us all a favor and explain it to him).   Yes, thanks to The Purssy, you can now celebrate your lady parts and store your necessities.  On the outside it looks like a normal clutch, but when you open it ...

 Ok, I’ll admit this blog post is about three months overdue. Although, I’d argue that it’s really never too late to draw attention to a good movie or an awesome young female character.   So I’m just going to proceed.    Last night I ended up watching the movie Kick-Ass on bootleg. I had dismissed the film when it came out back in April due to its seemingly lame premise (high school comic-book nerd wants to be a ... Read More

Some Hump Day Humor

BY Nicole Finkbiner in Artsy |

A few weeks ago I stumbled across the blog, But You’re Like Really Pretty and instantly became a huge fan.   Each Wednesday, illustrator and site owner Ryan Casey, posts a hilariously mean webcomic featuring someone or something in pop culture that’s been a particular source of annoyance that week (example below).  Her illustrations are so good and so clever that the blog was recently nominated for a Webby and won the 2010 Bloggie ...
