Tim Tebow's anti-choice Super Bowl commercial might be getting all the attention, but I needed a second pass at this Snickers ad featuring Betty White.  Not bad for someone who just celebrated their 88th birthday! You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More

"More Coffee Hon?"

BY Claire Hamilton in Artsy |

  It doesn't get much more quintessentially American than a waitress in a diner. The everlasting pot of coffee, the no-nonsense approach to customer satisfaction and occasionally a shoulder to cry on - these women have been steadily serving eggs sunny side up for generations, without too much thanks (though they do show up in a lot of movies!) But one woman who's made it her business to document and celebrate these angels of the formica tables is Candacy ... Read More

Yep, it's Rush Limbaugh being distressingly offensive again. Apparently, someone called into question his judging the Miss America pageant, being as that he seems to hate women in every way, shape, and/or form, so he went on Fox News (where else?) to explain that he supports women. What? The transcript and video from Think Progress:CARLSON: So for those who were critics of you in judging this pageant, and saying that you haven’t been a supporter of women ... Read More

Women Make Movies

BY Claire Hamilton in Artsy |

 There’s already a buzz around this year’s Academy Awards. Not only is there a woman’s name in the boys club category of Best Director (only the fourth time a female director has featured in that list – go Kathryn!).. but there’s a nomination in the Documentary Feature category which is definitely one to watch. Which Way Home was made by Rebecca Cammisa with help from the organization Women Make Movies. The film follows ... Read More
The Super Bowl is, historically, one of the most-watched events in American television each year. Folks gather far and wide to watch the AFC and the NFC champs duke it out. Although really, the Super Bowl is more about two very very important things: one being food (just writing this so far has made me crave queso dip and pigs in a blanket...) and the other being good old American capitalism via commercial-watching. We've all seen the entertaining ads with cat ... Read More
