I will never ever deny the fact that I'm a huge fan of romantic comedies. Despite their formulaic plot lines and almost laughable predictability, I still go googly-eyed and mushy-hearted at all the unlikely heroines/heroes and their even more unlikely love connections. So, when an invitation for a screening of What's Your Number? came up, I quickly snagged it. The movie follows Ally Darling (Anna Faris) as she tries to uncover a diamond in the rough among her past ... Read More

One of the founding ladies of Riot Grrrl is getting a documentary all to herself, but it's running into a serious problem. In fact, you may not even get a chance to see it. That is unless you help the director, Sini Anderson, and her crew out. With 28 days left, they need all the help they can get to get the movie finished or it just won't happen.
"In a feat nothing short of miraculous, we have managed to complete shooting for The Punk Singer with almost no ... Read More

Just one minute past midnight (EDT), the 18-year-old DADT (Don't Ask Don't Tell) law finally got KO'ed for good, which means gay and lesbian service members can now do their duties without lugging the closet door around with them. The law, which was implemented with seemingly good intentions (as a compromise to full equality), swayed wildly off-course into huge controversy. It required gay and lesbian members of the military to keep their sexuality a secret while ... Read More

I didn't always connect with photography, but I've recently come to appreciate all the raw emotion, nostalgia, and feelings you can get from it (thank you black-and-white photography class!). So now, when I look at photographs, I find myself not just staring at a picture with effects I probably can't name, but being enamored and drawn into a whole new world; the eyes of someone else. Such is art, bringing out all sorts of things you didn't expect it to. Such ... Read More

Any female sneaker fiends out there? Being in New York, besides the color black, there is nothing more powerful than the sneaker. The right pair can make your whole outfit! So, there is no wonder that there are sneaker heads the world over sharing their love and stocking up their shelves with the newest, freshest, and most colorful. Even I become weak in the knees when I see nice sneakers (sigh).If you're like me you'll be excited to learn about the new book Girls ... Read More

Azealia Banks (aka MC Miss Bank$) brings us a brand new type of rap/dance sound in her song "212". Seriously, you'll be dancing way too much. Reining from Harlem, this is the 19-year-old rapper's newer version of the video after the "official" one got leaked by some former friends a few months back. But the best thing about Azealia is not only can she spit, but she can sing too! Either way, I'm still gonna be jamming for a while. She's currently working on her ... Read More

Funky pop band Metronomy has released a remix of Lady Gaga's "You and I." They've ditched Gaga's usual guitars-and-drums sound and replaced it with some mellowed out electronic goodness. A more haunting version of the song, if I may.
