Hot Mormon Muffins?!

BY Web Intern in General |

Oh goodness, you'll either find this calendar chuckle-worthy and silly or find its use of female sexuality to show another side of the Mormon faith loathsome. From the creators of the Men on a Mission calendar, which features attractive-ish, shirtless Mormon missionaries who have served on full-time missions for their church, comes a calendar with 'twelve beautiful Mormon mothers posing in kitschy vintage pin-up style.' If that wasn't enough for you, each ... Read More
Oh, great -- another women's magazine that's afraid of periods! In this month's issue, Redbook reviewed Flow by Elissa Stein and Susan Kim, a book about the cultural history of menstruation. It sounds like a pretty interesting read -- and certainly shows great appreciation for the process so often referred to as 'the curse' by woman-hating tampon advertisers. But now Redbook, a magazine supposedly for women, seems to have joined the He-Man Woman Haters Club, too. ... Read More

Rainy Day Music

BY Team Intern in General |

It's definition icky in New York today: rainy, cold, windy, chilly, gray. Not a great day for baseball, but a perfect day to snuggle indoors with a cup of tea and some melancholy music from Berkley girls, Glass Cake. These poetic ladies' simple acoustic act is sweet, shy and sappy, with just a bit of Kimya Dawson jangle. Plus their tandem vocals and harmonies make you want to break out of your little gray cloud and sing along. Check out more Glass Cake on ... Read More

A Blackheart Christmas

BY intern Amber in General |

Usually, I am not into the idea of Christmas albums... especially rock Christmas albums. However, Blackheart Records, Joan Jett's record label, has proved me wrong. They are releasing an album that sounds so cool you'll want to embrace the holiday spirit. A Blackheart Christmas is available on vinyl for the very first time. The album features holiday standards from Girl in a Coma, The Dollyrots and original tunes from Seattle punks The Cute Lepers and veteran ... Read More

Anyone ever attend the Lilith Fair back in the day?

Well, listen it was a dark and stormy night when Mum set sail all the way from Iceland to play a show at (Le) Poisson Rouge on October 24th. I'll always remember it well; the rain was falling, the sky was further darkened by a canopy of interweaving black umbrellas held by the people waiting to get inside of the sold out show, and everyone inside was either swapping spit or getting into fist fights over God knows what. I couldn't paint a prettier picture of an ... Read More
