Say you're walking from Social Spot A to Social Spot B with a group of three other friends. There's a brief, comfortable lapse in conversation. How likely are you to take the moment to assign everyone their counterparts from Girls/Sex and the City? Be true: a) What? That's bizarre. I don't even watch those shows. b) Ha – I think I've played that game at a party once or twice, but only for giggles. c) Pretty likely. Especially if we're new friends, then it's ... Read More
Sorry, ladies. Despite our astute list of suggestions for female possi-hosts for the Late Show, looks like CBS has made up its testosterone-molded mind -- Stephen Colbert is set to replace David Letterman as head anchor and pithmeister in this most coveted spot on night-time television. Naturally, questions arise. Namely: 1) Will he be wrapping up the national news day in character? Of course it's nice to see someone with some established flair (and a ... Read More
Anyone else out there having one of those days/weeks/millennia in which they consistently question the goodness of mankind? Most of the news cycle is designed to point to awful people doing awful things. It's hard – especially on Thursdays – to be an optimist. Anyone recall, for instance, CURRENT NFL player Michael Vick's heinous, terrible, disgusting dog-fighting ring, for which this miserable scumbag served a mere 21 months in ... Read More
I have lived my entire life-to-date after the example of a few (...fictional) figures from pop culture. If you are likewise addicted to television, perhaps you empathize. Un-coincidentally, I have also lived my life prizing a few very basic truths, such as: 1) there is world-altering power in a funny anecdote and 2) to quote Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous: "the only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else ...

Straight outta Bushwick, two up and coming lady comics have started another great new web-series. I'm talking about the satirical #Girlsplaining Sports, starring Kirin McCrory and Gemma Kaneko as two would-be sports news anchors. Only instead of sitting around a table saying ridiculous things about actual games, these two select “sports topics” from a mug of viewer suggestions and take thirty seconds to comment on the news item/practice/trend...in girl ...

   Alas, friends – a study published today by the Women's Media Center confirms an upsetting (if not so surprising) truth: male journalists and news anchors still make up a hefty majority the big old American media engine. According to the report, “at ten of the nation's most widely circulated newspapers, men garnered 63 percent of bylines, compared to 37 percent for women.” Ouch. The study did take note of a few exceptions to the ... Read More
Some excellent Secondhand News for your Thursday doldrums (teehee): Christine McVie is re-joining Fleetwood Mac. Then, Fleetwood Mac is going back into the studio– the same studio, in fact, where they recorded Tusk in 1979. Then, they're going on an American tour. U.S. dates begin this September. This is not a drill, ladies.  Keyboardist/singer McVie (who we can thank for various top ten hits, like Don't Stop)  is the ... Read More
SanFran Contingent! Despite your fairly warm and consistent temperatures, is anyone out there in the mood for a seasonal wardrobe change? East Coasters, need material for your inspiration boards? Retail friends-of-BUST Gravel & Gold are showcasing their spring collection at a special event this upcoming Friday (March 28th). There will be toasts and try-ons from 6 to 9 pm, and plenty of opportunities to browse through this fantastic new line. Check out the ... Read More
  And the latest socially-conscious time-waster on the interwebz is...Putin's Gay Dress-Up. In protest of Russia's highly disturbing "anti-gay propaganda" legislation, one website has taken the fight for equality to the mannequins. PGD-U creators "want to make a playful stand against homosexual discrimination and legal actions taken under the regional anti-LGBT propaganda laws." All vocal opponents to Russia's policy are invited to make a doll, spread it ... Read More
Zohra Atash trots into Birch Coffee dressed to the nines – which is hardly a surprise given the rising star's reputation as a “goth goddess.” Despite righteously rocking a bright lip, a fringe leather coat, and a mop of carefully fussed black hair, the diminutive singer seems...skittish. After she insists on buying the coffees, Atash admits that crowded spaces make her nervous – despite all her years in New York (and as, you know, a ... Read More
