I’ve been a nail biter since I was a wee lass, so getting my nails done has always been out of the question. Plus, my nails are so small that I would probably have a panic attack trying to recreate the super-cute “Sweet Strawberry” manicure design featured in our current issue. Luckily, there’s a fantastic solution for fussy nail-biters like me - glue-on nails! We showcased some fabulous talons and decals (who wouldn’t want Tom ... Read More

The last word I would use to describe spoken word artist Pandora Scooter is ‘shy’. From her colorful coif to her energetic arm gestures, it’s hard not to listen to what she has to say. There is very little that Pandora won’t talk about. A regular stage banter may revolve around anything from sex in an airplane lavatory to ‘labia-licking’ ladies. An advocate for every single color of the sexuality spectrum, Pandora strives to ... Read More

Drew Barrymore in the director's chair, Maeby Fünke as a gang member, and an epic romance between young, troubled lovers. By way of movie magic, all of this was made a reality in Best Coast's new music video for their hit song, "Our Deal." Though just four minutes long, the ultra-mini film is packed with action, tears, forbidden love, and hair worth pushing your lover off a building for.
The video keeps the romantic, dreamy tones of Best Coast's song, but ... Read More

One of the first comic strips introduced in my school’s comics course was Nancy by Ernie Bushmiller. My initial reaction? 'This confused, prickly-headed, hyphen-nosed child has no place in my heart!' I’m not a Sunday funnies kind of gal, so I didn’t understand what Nancy was trying to do. Is it supposed to be funny? Is it making some kind of point that I'm totally missing? During the course, my professor introduced us to How to Read Nancy ... Read More

Think you have out-of-this-world sewing skills? Well, no offense, but they probably are no match for the skills of the ladies who created the Apollo space suits. (Unless your hobby is to meticulously craft suits capable of withstanding space travel and landing on the moon. If so, I commend you.) The space suit was stitched together from 21 layers of different materials as varied as Teflon and Lycra, and each layer served a specific purpose. Here's the big surprise ... Read More
