We love Portlandia, so we were tickled by the new Entertainment Weekly-exclusive short Portlandia: Deam of the 1890s. I wonder how they get through their takes, 'cause I can't hold back the laugh-tears. I especially love Fred Armisen's faux-bearded face in this one, and Carrie is as hilarious as ever.

Last Thursday night I stopped by the Soho branch of Toys in Babeland to help my friend Kiki do some holiday shopping, and to mostly lust after the Hitachi Magic Wand. I’m in love. Anyway, while I was browsing, I started talking to a curvy blond girl who worked there, and she gave me the deets for a Babeland event that same night--Kandi from the Real Housewives of Atlanta would be promoting her new line of sex toys with free champagne.

I have a big popcorn bowl ready for a History Detectives segment on Tuesday, September 20th (PBS, 8-9 ET). This episode, which focuses on women's suffrage, is worth watching because it’s rare that women’s history gets much play on national TV.
The History Detectives program on September 20th features Yvonne Blemly Crumlish and probes the mystery of her grandmother Addie's suffrage pennant that Yvonne's father gave her 30 years ago. Yvonne ... Read More
