Baby Daddy

BY debbie in General |

There's been a lot of talk lately about Thomas Beatie, the FTM transexual who is currently pregnant, especially since he appeared on Oprah yesterday. He's being touted as the "first pregnant man."However, there was another male pregnancy that followed this exact same set of circumstances almost a decade ago.  Matt Rice, the FTM partner of Pat Califia, gave birth to their son back in the late 1990's.  Just like Thomas, Matt had had top ...

The Feminist Majority Foundation recently released the following video to explain (again!) just what feminism means, and also, to show a bunch of Hollywood A and B listers claiming themselves as feminists. I already know what feminism is, but this video left me with some other questions. 1) Since it includes almost the entire cast of Ugly Betty (America Ferrara, Eric Mabius [swoon!] and Ana Ortiz) am I to conclude that the other castmates, such as Vanessa Williams, ...

I want a pink car, dammit!Last year, Nisssa painted one of their compact model cars pink, then toured it around the UK as part of a breast cancer fundraising event. NOt surprisingly, folks begged Nissan to produce the car in pink for reals -- and they did. The 100 units sold out quickly, so they came back with another 150. STateside we never even had a chance at this pink panther, since this cutie car, the Nissan Micra, isnt' even for sale here. It's not the first ... Read More

All the Labies of the World

BY debbie in General |

We know we're getting all creepy trekkie-obsessed with the dudes from Flight of the Conchords, but we can't stop ourselves. In last week's episode, they sang a love song to all the ladies of the world (from Namibian to amphibian; erudite to hermaphrodite). Now it looks like the ladies are singing back!First up, the soulful "Jemaine", from a future Mrs. Clement:  Next, "Bret. will you be my Ukelele lover?" from a Mrs. McKenzie wannabe: So ... Read More

Flight de la Conchords

BY debbie in Music Stuff |

Okay, so, yeah, I'm totes obsessed with Flight of the Conchords , and always enjoy the songs in their episodes-- those funny, pitch-perfect takeoffs on various music genres. But last night's song-- a mock '60s French pop number, whose lyrics consisted of only those French words that someone who'd studied it in high school would be likely to remember--is so good, I'd gladly listen to it even if it weren't funny. Oh, and the cute  video, complete with bicycles, ... Read More
