    On Saturday, Sept. 20, The Theater at The Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles held an art gala with proceeds benefiting Planned Parenthood. Radiating a poetic elegance from every angle, the venue reiterated the contextual nature of the beast, the SEXY BEAST, that is; an antiquity built with a solid foundation—restored in the name of modern progression. Oh, the metaphors! SEXY BEAST was organized by Davida Nemeroff and Mieke Marple of the esteemed Night ... Read More
I have been brainstorming for years the best way to react to catcallers, and I think Caroline Tompkins has found it. Her creative and powerful photo project titled “Hey Baby” turns the lens on her verbal assaulters. The 22-year-old art student claimed walking around her own neighborhood was unbearable and she would constantly be harassed. In taking photos of the jerks that think they are in the right, she is able to turn around and confront the ... Read More

Tim Burton, the king of spooky cool and curator of '90s kids’ favorite movies from childhood, is coming out with a new lady-centered movie, Big Eyes.  The film is a true story about Margaret Keane, an artist from the 1950s played by Amy Adams, who specialized in painting images of children with freakishly huge eyes. But her husband Walter, played by the charming Christoph Waltz, is not such a charming character. In fact, he’s kind of a ... Read More
Given that The Skeleton Twins stars Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Luke Wilson, it’s easy to jump to the conclusion that the film must be a gut-busting comedy. But the first 10 minutes will prove you wrong — Wiig’s character Maggie is about to attempt suicide when she’s interrupted by a phone call from a Los Angeles hospital telling her that her twin brother Milo (Hader) has just survived his own suicide attempt. The siblings haven’t ... Read More

Here is the catch though, every year, for the next 100 years, a new author will be chosen to contribute to this library, but these works cannot be read until 2114! So…basically, ... Read More

As any of her followers ... Read More
Lena Dunham shares a lot about herself with the world, both on TV and social media. Her revealing and candid essays, many of which have been published in The New Yorker, lay everything out on the table for the nation to scrutinize. And Dunham literally bares all in her hit HBO show Girls, which is going into its fourth season. Her candor makes some uncomfortable as her naked body makes many appearances. But Dunham isn’t finished. Her upcoming book Not That Kind ... Read More
