Upside Down, from writer and director Juan Diego Solanas, depicts the love story of Adam (Jim Sturgess) and Eden (Kirsten Dunst): a couple separated by not only wealth and class differences, but physical gravities that pull in opposite directions. In this fantastical universe, they live on separate planets, which orbit one another.
Eden, coming from a world of privilege, and Adam, from a world of poverty, meet as teenagers at the gravity barrier and fall in love. ... Read More

This past Friday I found myself at Joe’s Pub in a sea of “industry people,” feeling rather excited and partially terrified to see the band BOY’s NY debut. I had done my research on the band, but it wasn’t easy-- search “BOY band” on the internet and you’ll be transported back to the mid-nineties when tips were frosted and clothing was named after food (spaghetti straps, y’all!).
In actuality, the mysterious BOY ... Read More

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the birth rate in the U.S. has dropped with the recession, and many, many men are freaking out about it. In a nutshell, they fear that low birth rates will lead to an unsustainable inequality between the taxable work force and the social security-dependent elderly. After all, people are living longer and longer and, barring some sort of zombie apocalypse situation, this trend will continue.
You’d think it ... Read More

On Monday, Kathleen Hanna (of Bikini Kill, Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin) had a radio interview on “Q with Jian Ghomeshi,” where she spoke about the importance of public mistakes, the resurgence of the ‘90s, and why she is still pissed off twenty years later (“Does anybody remember that the Equal Rights Amendment never passed?”).
In the wake of the reissue of Bikini Kill’s entire catalog, Hanna speaks a lot about the band’s ... Read More

My father was a stay-at-home dad when I was little. He fed me, watched me, and did my hair in those super fierce side ponytails I was so into. At the time, my mother was a medical resident, which took nearly all her time and energy, so it made sense for my dad to be at home with us kids. I have always been very proud of the fact that my dad stayed home with me, and most of that is due to the fact that stay-at-home dads were rare when I was growing up.
However, in ... Read More

After a twenty year hiatus, My Bloody Valentine is back with a new album entitled m b v. The band had hinted at its impeding release for years, but the LP was only confirmed late last week. If you enjoyed Loveless, the band’s 1991 neo-psychedelic classic, then you are going to dig m b v. The tracks have the same distortion-heavy, slightly deranged sedation typical of the shoegaze scene they helped pioneer in the late eighties and early nineties. With ... Read More

In another idiotic article by Fox News, Suzanne Venker continues to argue that feminism is a scary, evil monster destroying the American familial institution and all the happiness in the world. Discussing feminism’s role in the destruction of pre-1970s perfect marriages, she says, “Feminism didn’t result in equality between the sexes—it resulted in mass confusion. Today, men and women have no idea who’s supposed to do what.” ... Read More
