If there’s one thing I’ve ever learned from watching The Daily Show (or just being a decent human being with some form of common sense) is that you never, ever compare anything to Hitler, the Nazis, or the Holocaust. Ever. Unless you are, in fact, discussing Hitler, the Nazis, or the Holocaust, nothing should ever be compared to them. Never. It’s the number one way to lose credibility in a discussion, come off as an insensitive ass with little ... Read More
The Occupy Movement is kicking it up a notch. Tomorrow, May 1st, Occupy is calling for a general strike of the 99%, a continuation of the historical May Day, which has been International Workers Day for over a century.

In honor of Equal Pay Day tomorrow, the National Partnership for Women & Families has released staggering new data that illustrates exactly what women are losing out on due to the wage gap.

The BUST Craftacular took over SoHo on Saturday, filling the space at 82 Mercer with over 100 vendors and more than 2,000 craft enthusiasts throughout the day.

With vendors loading in, we got a sneak peek at the incredible wares. I had friends meeting me later, and I was nearly exploding because I had ... Read More
The world of pop art is a boy's club. Think Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, those 1960s superstars that catapulted the pop genre into the realm of fine art. Well look out, boys, there's a new girl in town. Robin Antar, a Brooklyn-based sculptor, is not actually new on the scene; she's been active and exhibiting her work for over  20 years. This spring, Antar will become the first female artist to exhibit at New York's POP International Galleries. A staple of ... Read More

  I have repeatedly tried to teach myself to bounce. As much as I wiggle, my ass is just not having it. Because of my own failure (and believe me, I keep trying), I can't help but be impressed by those fly few who can truly shake dat booty.

The week of events culminates in an Easter Sunday bounce-a-thon ... Read More
