Some Hump Day Humor

BY Nicole Finkbiner in Artsy |

A few weeks ago I stumbled across the blog, But You’re Like Really Pretty and instantly became a huge fan.   Each Wednesday, illustrator and site owner Ryan Casey, posts a hilariously mean webcomic featuring someone or something in pop culture that’s been a particular source of annoyance that week (example below).  Her illustrations are so good and so clever that the blog was recently nominated for a Webby and won the 2010 Bloggie ...

Rock On Reena!

BY intern Amber in General |

Okay so I have to tell you about a wonderful friend of mine, Reena Shah . I am always so inspired by this powerful artist with a knockout smile and spirit. I don't know if Reena knows this, but she is breaking boundaries. Minority actresses the world over have a hard time being embraced by the Anglo-obsessed film and entertainment industry, but Reena has managed to be a successful actress/singer/dancer all while embracing her Indian-American roots. You can see her ... Read More

Taylor's book focuses on women age 50 and older who have worked as diner waitresses for most of their lives, and features tons of awesome photographs. You can see a few of them in a July ...

Absolute Death: A Review

BY Sarah J. in General |

The first graphic novel I ever bought was Death: The High Cost of Living. I was a teenage gothette just figuring out that there were all sorts of strange and wonderful things out there that I hadn't discovered yet, and then one day my friend came to school with a little thing called the Death Gallery, full of these gorgeous pictures of this little goth girl that sorta even looked like me (if you squinted and washed out the color). What the heck was that? I'd seen ... Read More
The 45th Annual Chicago International Film Festival kicks off today, and this year, organizers have created the Reel Women program to spotlight films created by women or that address women's issues. And when they say 'women's issues,' they ain't kiddin' -- one of the films is a documentary about menstruation, and tonight's opening night feature is the Katherine Dieckmann-directed Motherhood starring Uma Thurman. Right on, Chicago! An Education, ... Read More
The Guerrilla Girls have made their way to Ireland so you know what that means...sexism in the arts is under attack! Project Ireland has been unveiled and yes, the campaign is just as informative and to the point as their previous ones. (Sorry for fuzz, Busties! Check out the website for a crystal-clear look)If you're in Ireland (hello to my sister) you should definitely make a point to visit the ladies/guerrillas while they're out and about. Tomorrow ...

If you work hard for the money (so hard for it honey), you'll be excited to learn that museums nationwide are opening their doors to the penny-pinchin' public for free tomorrow.  That's right, absolutely zippo!  The Smithsonian-sponsored Museum Day just requires you print out a pass from their website, and you can walk right in to one of 1,200 participating art galleries, museums, and science centers. It's no secret that when it comes to cultural ... Read More
If you watched Mad Men a couple of weeks ago, you may have been wowed by Pete Campbell's surprising ability to cut the rug at his boss's twenties-themed garden party:Well, if you live in NYC and harbor a desire to go to a similar type of party, including Charleston dance lessons, vintage cocktails, live music, old 78 records played on an old time-y gramophone, and, zomg, a PIE BAKING CONTEST, then you're in luck, because this weekend sees hte return of the ...

Carrie Brownstein just doesn't stop! We recently posted clips of her hilarious work with Fred Armisen as one half of Thunderant, and now she's back again with a more serious turn in the film Some Days Are Better Than Others. The trailer premiered today on the film's website, which offers this bit of tantalizing information: Corin Tucker, also formerly of Sleater-Kinney, will be making an appearance as 'soccer mom.' Ladies, you're obviously still ... Read More
I adore Miranda July. I want her creativity for my own and I gobble up everything she produces, whether it be her short stories, performance art, films, or the Learning to Love You More assignments (which they no longer do!). When I saw the pictures of her on VICE's site, well, I craved more. The subject of the set of pictures was to take an extra from a still of a film (The Godfather, Grease, and The Outsiders are three of those that were selected) and have ... Read More
