IN REAL LIFE, the latest work by the young and prolific Claire Kurylowski, examines the great lengths girls go to in order to defend themselves from harassment and sexual violence. The Berlin and London based artist created the short film for Dazed Digital’s Visionaries series after watching the viral YouTube video How to Break Out of Zip Ties. The YouTube tutorial has received a little over 3.4 million hits, which so accurately represents the culture we ... Read More
  Jim Henson’s film Labyrinth has been my favorite movie since I was seven. For 14 years I’ve been an adamant fan of the dark children’s movie staring a young Jennifer Connelly and a not-quite-so-young David Bowie. I was entranced by the playful but undeniably sinister nature of the film and still to this day watch it at least once a week.   However, I also think that exposing me to this movie at a young and primitive age ...

There are two great beauties in this world: flowers and beards. Why had no one thought to combine the two until now? Flowers are a gift from nature, a beauty unmatched until…men decided to grow out their face hair. Am I right ladies? A good beard can churn up my insides faster than ripped abs or perfect man style. The combination of the romantic and stereotypically “feminine” nature of flowers with the uber masculine connotation of facial hair ... Read More
Do you ever have those days where you wish you could switch places with your cat?  I’d love to take a day off of work to just sleep and purr and enjoy that feline life. Alas, it was not meant to be.  But at least you can take a break from all of your human-work to appreciate these cats’ amazing sleeping powers!  Seriously, I wish I could sleep the way some of these cats are sleeping.  It’s a skill.   Because climbing ...

“The best film music is not heard,” quotes Claudia Gorban in her essay Music as Salvation: Notes on Fellini and Rota. She tastefully disagrees with this quote, asking why is that people focus so much on the “background” music in Fellini’s films? I ask myself the same question. Why is that I focus so much on the background music? Our non-diegetic friend that is lurking behind what is going on on-screen stands out further to me than any ... Read More
  This week, I started a new job that requires me to engage with the public. Thankfully, it does not entail holding a sign for, “the best New York Comedy Show” or dressing up as Elmo in times square. Instead, I am (wo)manning the Bryant Park art cart, which is a cart parked in front of the New York Public Library full of free art supplies for the public to use. Anyone can stop by to try out an assortment of high- quality drawing/ arts and ... Read More
I don’t usually turn to reality contest shows for inspirational stories because it seems that they attract contestants with one caveat and exploit it to gain ratings. Maybe I just have a tooth to grind because I had one very talented friend tryout, but without movie star looks or a heart-breaking past he had no hook to remain in the competition. Sidebar over, I found Anna Clendening’s personal triumph over her anxiety and depression to perform on ... Read More
Suzanne Morissette proves that on her wedding day, she is not just a pretty porcelain doll exclusively to be looked at, toasted to, and fawned over. Her lucky husband is clearly sticking with Morissette for life not only because she's a hottie patattie, but because she has major chops! He's standing just off to the side in this video, actually, playing in the band. I hope he got to enjoy his special day as well, but as the cliché goes, it's all about ... Read More
“Hello? Yes, it is me, bell hooks. Yes, I am here to tell you to cut that white supremacist capitalist patriarchy shit out. Uh huh, thanks, okay buhbye.” It may not be as good as the lady herself, but yes, that is pretty much what is going on here. This amazing new Tumblr page provides those who love a good ol’ bell hooks hoot every once in a while with pure gold; The Feminist Phone Intervention is a godsend for anyone and everyone ...

On this creepy, crawly, full-mooned, Friday the 13th, a photo of American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson's new character for highly anticipated season 4 was leaked. In the upcoming season, entitled Freak Show, Paulson will be playing two-headed conjoined twins, Bette and Dot alongside a cast of other actors returning from the previous seasons.  When I first heard about American Horror Story, I was dubious about its representations of sexism, ...
