Good morning! The fact that it's just shy of noon and here you are – on a weekday! – suggests that you, amigo, are rolling fast down the hill of procrastinating at whatever it is you call “work.” You've made the usual rounds, of course: Facebook, Twitter, that flickering, guilty glance at The New York Times or Huffington Post – but your dallying is eventually fruitless. Because someone has put up an eye-catching “Twenty Disney ... Read More
 Jennifer Simpkins of The Tab London has written a savvy, brave piece about the dark underbelly of fourth-wave feminism – or, really, any loud group of opinionated people with internet access. In her estimate, feminists can counterintuitively tend to victimize other women by being excessively quick to admonish or dismiss; take the author's description of the time she tentatively endorsed Robin Thicke's “Blurred Lines” on social media. Worth ... Read More
Does this need much explanation? Sarah Silverman's politically charged new video is a (typically) cheeky call for women's reproductive rights. In particular, our fave comedienne indicts Texas' proposed drastic reduction of women's health clinics. Perhaps pay special attention to the animation sequence surrounding “sperm rights,” in which a cartoon man endures an aggressive save-the-living-jism procedure. I have LOL'd, here at my desk. You can find out ... Read More
On January 15th, sports-centric website Grantland published a feature by journalist Caleb Hannan on a scientifically advanced new golf putter and its eccentric inventor, Essay Anne Vanderbilt. This piece, which took an alleged seven months to research and report, begins with Mr. Hannan's inquiring into an aloof woman's background. The writer's increasingly vigorous investigation determined holes in much of Ms. Vanderbilt's professional resume. And finally, as he ... Read More
B.J. Novak – who you may know better as Ryan the Temp on The (American) Office – has joined the club of comedians who have turned their talents to print. But unlike predecessors Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling (how fun was THAT to type...), Mr. Novak's book isn't a collection of coming-of-age essays: it's fiction. One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories, is a collection of funny shorts. It comes out on February 4th from Knopf, and has already been hailed ... Read More
When performance artist Laurie Anderson's Empty Spaces first came to New York in 1989 (as part of the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music), The New York Times hailed the artist's latest piece as “a work that, above all, evokes an American sense of loneliness, of cowboys calling through wide open spaces.” Ever shrewd, ever stylish, Anderson's collaged show contained anecdotes, lilting ballads, and cultural criticism. Dangerous Minds ... Read More
  Having just learned the meaning of #tbt (but unfortunately today, a Friday...), I've concocted a non-topical list of life lessons gleaned from the cult-popular nineties television show, My So-Called Life. For the uninitiated – or for those who do not spend snow days marathoning defunct high-school programs – this show featured a young Claire Danes as the wistful, perpetually uneasy Angela Chase, whose life changes the day she dyes her hair red.* ...

Allison Williams, spearheading Elle Magazine's annual “Women in TV” issue. Zosia Mamet (or, her doppelganger...) on 23rd and Lexington, hailing a cab... It's nice to hear the actresses speak about their show with a new poise – for despite those ... Read More
