Meow! It’s Friday! It’s been a long week, and you deserve something for all the hard work you’ve done. You’re awesome. And because you're so awesome, what better reward than a bunch of photos of cats standing on their hind legs? Believe me, you don’t know how important these are.   These photos sure do raise a lot of questions. For example, why are they standing up?? That's actually the only question, the answer to ...

  Though the language used in its commercial smacks of “so simple, even a woman can understand it,” I must admit that the Cuff is a pretty cool invention. It’s a little chip (or “tiny device with technology inside,” as the commercial puts it) worn in a piece of jewelry that, among other useful tricks, can send an alert to someone’s phone when you’re in danger. Just press the device, and a message gets sent to a ... Read More
Somebody please bring me a paper bag, because I’m hyperventilating right now. Why? Because Jennifer Saunders has just released new info regarding the Absolutely Fabulous movie, and it’s big.  Earlier this year, Saunders confirmed that she had started writing the script for the movie spin-off of her hit sitcom.  She told the press in May that she was angling for the film to be released towards the end of 2015. Just this summer, a new ... Read More

I don't think I’ve been this interested in Little League baseball since… well, ever.   Mo’ne Davis, a 13-year-old from Philadelphia, threw a two-hitter this past weekend at her team’s opening game at the Little League World Series. For those of you who aren’t familiar with baseball lingo, that’s pretty damn good. Davis is only one of the two female players at the LLWS, and is now the first female pitcher in history to win ...

  Is it just me, or has this been the loooonnngest week ever? And the news has certainly not given us much to lift our spirits, what with the tragic turn of events in Ferguson, the loss of some incredible talent, the horrible violence in Israel and Palestine—ugh. I need a hug. If you do, too, (and you're in NYC) head on over to Union Square this Tuesday and get one for free!  No, I don’t mean from those randos outside Forever 21 who write ... Read More
The Death Valley Girls are totally on fire right now. It’s barely been six months since the release of their debut album, Street Venom, and the raucous Los Angeles punk band is already prepping for the release of their follow-up EP, Electric High, out early this fall. The band (made up of lead singer Bonnie Bloomgarden, Laura Kelsey on drums, Larry Schemel on guitar and Rocky on bass) is as punk as it gets, with a sound that’s closer to something ... Read More
In case you missed it, a fashion shoot by Indian photographer Raj Shetye made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The photo series depicted a model groped in various positions by men on a bus, and was particularly unsettling because of its eerie resemblance to the tragic 2012 gang rape and murder of a 23-year old woman on a bus in Delhi.   The shoot garnered some well-deserved backlash, including some from Bollywood music director Vishal Dadlani, ...
