Benny Does it Again

BY Web Intern in General |

Every once in a while there is a person that makes me wonder if they are seriously just waking up in the morning a thinking to themselves 'hmmmm, how can i best aggravate volatile situations, wreak havoc on the world and generally behave like a massive ass?' I'm not talking about those people who consider it some sort of aristotelian duty to annoy all they come across (ahem, Dad). I'm talking about a person who seems to want to murder basic decency. For me, today, ... Read More
The beloved, cherished children's book Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, originally published in the 60s, is being adapted into a movie of the same title. We all remember the classic because we were just like Max as a child; being sent to bed with no supper for just being a kid and creating a world to escape to. Without eating, our mind can create some pretty vivid stuff, as Max did with by creating the Wild Things and their world. Check the trailer to ... Read More

Separated at Birth?

BY Laurie in General |

I saw the new Monsters v. Aliens this weekend and thought it was pretty amazing. Not just for kids, I swear! And it's in 3D. Is it just me, or does Gallaxhar (from Monsters vs. Aliens) remind you of Mojo Jo Jo (Powerpuff Girls)? I've always loved outrageously sinister villians, and they did a fun job with the squid like Gallaxhar. Even tho he is a squid, he has a monkey face, just like MJJ, and an extremely large brain. I actually loved all the characters, the ... Read More

WAM! Wrapup

BY Sarah J. in Feminizzle |

I survived WAM! 2009. More importantly, I had a wonderful time. Meeting and connecting with women I've looked up to for years (Abby Scher , Sarah Posner , Julia Serano ) and bloggers I love (Jill, Cara and Jack from Feministe, Sally from Jump Off the Bridge, Tammy from Bitch) in a space where everyone talks to everyone and new friendships form as quickly on Twitter as they did in the halls was inspiring. Speaking of Twitter, the WAM Twitter stream can be viewed ... Read More

OK young 'uns, listen up. A long, long, time ago, in a dark age before Twitter, there was an era called the '90s that fostered a kind of weird ass music called acid house, and the best acid house band was the KLF . They produced one of my favorite party songs of that decade, ' Justified and Ancient,' a totally insane club banger that featured none other than country music legend Tammy Wynette . Despite my love of this song, however, the absolutely INSANE video they ... Read More
I snapped this photo outside of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum yesterday, and while I couldn't make the talk last night, I just wanted to give a belated shout-out to our sisters who died in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in 1911. The factory was a sweatshop employing young immigrant women who worked in sub par conditions for very little pay. The tragic deaths of 146 workers (including children) spurred safety and labor reform laws and also made the ... Read More

Mike Mills in NYC

BY Laurie in Artsy |

One of my most favorite living designers, Mike Mills (not the REM dude) is speaking at The Strand on Friday night in NYC. He's got a new book published by D.A.P. and will be having a conversation with cute curator Tim Barber. If you are not familiar with Mills, get googling! He is a super talented guy, and besides being an amazing graphic designer and visual artist has directed several films (Thumbsucker) and music videos (Air, Yoko, Blonde Redhead) and not to ...
