Earlier this year, we talked about why the Left Eye is the shit: she advocated safe sex, she burned down her abusive boyfriend’s house, and she did charity work with children in underdeveloped communities.
Long live the '90s.
That’s why we’re psyched that VH1’s Mixtape Festival will be presenting TLC on stage as a trio once again. We hear that Left Eye will be appearing on stage - as a digital projection made of archival footage. ... Read More

You may have seen this awesome-looking truck around the city. Perhaps you have also tried the equally awesome curry puffs that come out of it. Or their signature Chicken Pad Thai. We are referring to Mamu Thai Noodle, one of the newest food trucks in NYC. The owner, New York native Siwat Thitiwatana, was inspired to start his own business after visiting his uncle in Thailand, who owns three noodle shops. You can usually find Mamu around Brooklyn or ... Read More

In our last post about B, we raised an eyebrow at her reluctance to call herself a feminist. Why? Because we believe she is a feminist and she should own it. That’s why we did a serious double-take at what Rakhi Kumar wrote about her in the Huffington Post last week.
In “An Open Letter to Michelle Obama”, Kumar reprimands the first lady for recognizing Beyonce as a role model for her two daughters:

Here’s a Facebook page that’s worth liking: The Kurd Men for Equality campaign. Kurdish men in Iran started the campaign in response to what they believed to be misogyny in a local court case. A man who was convicted of domestic abuse was forced to parade the streets in a dress and hijab, the traditional women’s clothing, as public humiliation. To express their disapproval of the judge’s degradation of women, local men began posting ... Read More
