Amy Poehler, the world’s most fabulously awesome human being x1000, wrote a wonderfully thoughtful piece for The New Yorker about her experience as a 17-year old working at an ice cream parlor. The essay, which takes place in 1989—the summer before Poehler’s first year at Boston College—details the tribulations of working in the restaurant business, and explores a familiar topic: adolescent unease about the future. Recalling her ... Read More

If anyone has some insight to offer on the eternal questions of life and love, it’s Amanda Palmer. The singer/composer/musician is a theatrical goddess, weaving fantastical tales in her lyrics and creating surreal spectacles on stage. She has clearly given a lot of thought to life and death, which is illustrated in The Killing Type (my favorite song of hers) where she chronicles her true story of mercy-killing a dying bird and how the experience of ...

 Dear Roseanne, I’m in my mid-20s and will soon be getting a divorce from my high school sweetheart (we’ve been together a total of 10 years). While we may no longer be partners, we’re still friends. My family is very small and I’m close to his parents; I consider them to be family. It’s hard enough to see my relationship end, but losing them too would make things even harder. Is it possible to continue talking to them? My ex ... Read More
Our favorite fierce, funny feminist addresses all that ails you   Dear Roseanne, I kept my own name when I got married, but for some reason, even if people know that, they insist on addressing letters to my husband and I as “Mr. and Mrs. John Smith” or “The Smiths,” or referring to me as “Mrs. Smith.” How do I get them to understand that I’m still “Ms. Jane Doe” and not “Mrs. John Smith,” ...

Roseanne Barr is an unapologetic feminist and a damn funny one at that. Back in the late ’80s and ’90s, she took feminism mainstream, paving the way for women in television with Roseanne, the show she created, starred in, and fought tooth and nail for during its decade-long run (read her recent account of the ordeal in NY Mag). Now she’s a macadamia nut farmer in Hawaii, chilling with chickens, goats, and her partner Johnny Argent. She's also ... Read More
