SCREAM BAGS, BLOOD CIRCUS, WRESTLING, HIPSTER LAWSUITS, FAKE GOLD CHAINS, CREDIT FRAUD, ST. CLOUD FLORIDA, SPRAY BOTTLES FOR YOUR DOG... These are amongst the wonders you will find when you travel down the rabbit hole that is SANTO GOLD. A few months ago my YouTube Tzar, Alex Kaplan, informed me of this golden nugget. Wikipedia has an entry on Mr. Gold, but this entry doesn't include the fact that he has a stalker named Ryder Ripps, who has ambushed his inbox with ... Read More
My back, hours after cupping. Photo by Atom Moore I go almost every week to get acupuncture from a fabulous woman named Michelle LaDue. I started going for anxiety, which acupuncture has really helped, and now whenever I go, we chat about how I'm feeling, what my body and mind are experiencing, and what I'd like to focus on that day. Sometimes it's PMS, sometimes it's a lack of energy, and sometimes it's just a tune-up. I am also a fervent believer and user of ... Read More

So excited that George Michael finally came around to agreeing to be in the movie version of Arrested Development. Hopefully this movie will actually be made, since it's probably one of the funniest shows ever. While I love each and every character, I think my favorite is Gob (aka Amy Poehler's husband, Will Arnett). Cmon! via E. ... Read More

Weave stops bullet!!

BY Laurie in General |

A Kansas city woman has her tightly woven weave (I mean God) to thank for saving her life. Apparently her boyfriend shot at her and luckily her weave stopped the bullet. 'I've invested a lot of money into this weave and it saved my life.' Now that's what I call a good hair day. ... Read More

Mmmmmmm Ward.

BY Lisa in General |

I've always been a fan of this Portland, OR, based crooner's scratchy voice and rockin' piano/guitar skills, so getting to see him last night at the Apollo (not nearly as big as it looks on TV! Who knew?) was nothing short of awesome. He played a few slow jams by himself, opening with the title track, 'Hold Time,' off his brand new album, then rocked out with his band and even brought a few members of Brooklyn Americana crew Oakley Hall out on stage (loved those ...

Make Tomorrow Epic.

BY Callie in General |

I was out of commiss last weekend with the flu and vertigo, the flu is on its way out but no telling about the vertigo. It seems like it is getting better, or maybe I am just getting used to it. Either way, I will just die if I have to lay around the house for another weekend, even if it is in the snuggie. After the Sex In America symposium I am hoping to make it to the Chicken Hut for what is sure to be an insane parrrrrrty! My roommate/spiritual guide ... Read More

Half-Birthday Knits

BY Lisa in General |

    We thought the embroidered grocery bag craft in our Feb/Mar issue (above left) was totally genius. Well it just so happens that Jennifer Reichert, the bag's designer, has many more tricks up her sleeve. My favorites are the custom knit portrait totes she makes (like the one above). Amazing! And if you love that grocery bag but just can't find the time to make it, you can get one right from the creator herself, just check out her Web site, ... Read More
The folks over at the UK gossip site Popbitch have a secret weapon in their fight for Oscar prediction supremacy this year. He's a 'psychic' cat named Wilbur and according to his posse, you'd have to be a fool to bet against him: 'Now two years old, Wilbur had a difficult start to life. He was abandoned as a kitten with his sister under a hedge in a park. When rescued, he hid under the sofa for months. When he finally ventured out from under the sofa, we were ... Read More
