The 25-year-old Dominican-Ecuadorian DJ from Manhattan, born Jazmin Venus Soto, first gained attention after hosting GHE20GOTH1K with ... Read More

Most importantly, it’s based on a true story: Von Buhler created "Speakeasy Dollhouse" to try and solve the mystery of her ... Read More

I visited Giverny a few years ago, and "punk rock" was not the first, or second, or fiftieth thing that came to my mind while I was there. Clearly I'm just not inspired enough. When E.V. Day, feminist installation artist, sculptor, and photographer, was awarded the Munn Artists Residency by the Versailles Foundation to live on Monet's estate in Giverny in 2010, she proceeded to invite performance artist Kembra Pfahler there to collaborate on a ...

I am a worshipper of vegan mac 'n' cheese. Actually, for a person who eats meat, I find myself thinking about yummy vegan/vegetarian fare all the time. Just last night, I was explaining to my friend Chris all the wonders of vegetarian chorizo. And is there anything quite like a seitan Jamaican patty? The golden crust hiding that steaming curry-spiced treasure! Real talk: I love food! And it’s about that time of year when all my vegan/vegetarian food ... Read More
