Our latest cover girl, the lovely Liv Tyler, made the scene last Monday for the premiere of the dark and absurd comedy SUPER, along with her pops, and co-stars Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page.
SUPER is yet another take on the masked super hero genre ala Kick Ass or Scott Pilgrim vs. the world. In SUPER, Liv plays an addict that succumbs to an evil drug dealer, played hilariously by Kevin Bacon (he is exceptionally sleazy and awesome in this role) while her ex, schlumpy ... Read More

Luminous Kitchens has created an all-natural energy bar that tastes nothing like those stale bars you find in the grocery store. It’s animal free (except for honey, sorry strict vegans!), and completely free of refined sugar. It’s also 90% organic. A lot of people don’t usually equate healthy with tasty, but this bar would prove anyone wrong. It’s so soft it practically melts in your mouth, and natural sweeteners like brown rice syrup and ...

The first Government Women’s Report since 1963 was released today. The report focuses on women’s issues such as health, violence, and income. One of the main findings of the 97-page report was based on income inequality. Though women attend college at the same rates as men, and the amount of women in the workforce is almost equal, female labor is still valued at significantly less than their male counterparts. Women earn 75% of what men earn, ... Read More

I love many things in life, but two of my favorites are cute things and tea, which makes Andrews and Dunham Damn Fine Tea now among my favorite favorites. Their unique blends of (delish!) tea are packaged in adorable tins with motifs like Star Wars, Chinese New Year, and mermaids! Sadly, all their teas are limited edition, but I think it would be totally awesome to build up a cute little tin collection after you've finished your teas. Check out some of their ... Read More

Clever ladies Clem, Kathleen and Eve offer cookies and other baked goods (according to their twitter, today they're making cinnamon buns) out of their second story San Francisco apartment by dangling a string out their window with a bag attached to it reading "1$ for a fresh baked cookie (pull the string if you wish to partake).
Their company is called Fat Cookies (yes!) and it is really one of the best ideas I've heard all year. People need cookies, and we ... Read More

The cliché “writer meets a starlet for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The starlet, usually of slim and gamine proportions, appears to thwart our expectations by ordering and consuming, with conspicuous relish, a meal that might satisfy a hungry dockworker.” New York Times writer, Jeff Gordinier points out that this situation has become oddly familiar, and it has even been coined “the documented instance of public eating” ...

As the violence escalates in the Egyptian revolution, it's no surprise that one of the videos posted on Facebook on January 18th by this young woman, Asmaa Mahfouz went viral and apparently inspired thousands to go down to Tahrir square on the 25th to protest.

Obama’s State of the Union played on normal political cliché; “We have fought fiercely for our beliefs”, or “What comes at this moment will be determined by us” to inspire and unify the American public. Most speeches build up the audience, in this case, “the American family” and then let us in on some tragedy or fault, only to rise us up again with a new found sense of hope. We’re supposed to overcome.
