Hit So Hard

BY Intern Tessa in Movies |

Patty Schemel, former drummer for Hole (among others), is a survivor. She found success in one of the biggest acts of the 90s, but along with her rock-star lifestyle came some dark moments, and while Patty played the shit out of the drums, life equally played the shit out of Patty. The story of her life and career is told in Hit So Hard, a documentary that opens in theaters on April 13th. A drummer holds every song together, and with her focused expression, steady ... Read More
 Reviewed by Erica Wetter Clover Adams: A Gilded and Heartbreaking Life By Natalie Dykstra (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) You’ve probably never heard of Clover Adams, but as English Professor Natalie Dykstra illuminates in this detailed biography of the 19th-century Washington socialite, she rubbed elbows with many of the nation’s elite. “A perfect Voltaire in petticoats,” friend Henry James commented. “Certainly not handsome” her husband-to-be ...

Actress, activist, and all-around badass Ashley Judd has fired back at the media for critiquing her appearance. Tabloids (and even legit news sources) have been crowing that Judd’s face looks puffy and generally messed up, claiming that it must be due to her having pumped her face full of fillers. With her response, Judd's established herself as a force to be reckoned with. With eloquence, intelligence, and seeming effortlessness, she slammed those who have ... Read More
The "Speakeasy Dollhouse," a Prohibition-era interactive play by Cynthia von Buhler, is puzzling. It’s a participatory work of theater, a whodunit and an unsolved mystery. Audience members are encouraged to study evidence before experiencing the play, which is set in a speakeasy (based on a previously constructed dollhouse set). Most importantly, it’s based on a true story: Von Buhler created "Speakeasy Dollhouse" to try and solve the mystery of her ... Read More
   If you love balls -- of the meat (or veggie!) variety -- be sure to stop by Mighty Balls at the BUST Magazine Craftacular and Food Fair in NYC this Saturday, April 14th. Owners Dina Williamson and Kerri Brewer proclaim that they "specialize in all things balls," and they have some primo toppings for their pork, beef, or veggie options (got my eye on African Onion and Cranberry Horseradish). I, for one, am counting down the days 'til I get to stuff ... Read More
Last November, atheist Egyptian blogger Aliaa Magda Elmahady posted a nude photo of herself on her blog, tweeting and tagging it #NudePhotoRevolutionary. She and her boyfriend were then criminally charged with "violating morals, inciting indecency and insulting Islam" -- spurring activists to "take back the nude photo," as it were. When blogger and activist Maryam Namazie got wind of this, she decided to take on the project of the Nude Photo Revolutionary ... Read More
