50 Shades of Grey. It’s everywhere, including (probably) on your mom's bedside table. And while everyone is talking about the series and hungrily flipping through its pages, they’re usually trying to figure one thing out: what does hunky perv Christian Grey look like? Well, apparently UK scientists have a lot of time on their hands and love BDSM, because they’re plagued by the same question. And one scientist has come up with the answer.  ... Read More
I often hear artists and musicians respond in interviews that they do what they do because of an intense and mysterious compulsion. This strong drive is difficult to understand unless personally experienced, but to Iceland’s Sigríður Níelsdóttirit, the feeling was all too familiar. So much, in fact, that she recorded a catalog of over 700 songs within seven years at the tender age of 70. Lovingly known as ‘Grandma Lo-Fi,’ ... Read More
The Hunger Games is officially a phenomenon. People of all ages and tastes are loving it and with such a twisted plot and kickass heroine, who can blame them? America is geeking out together and I'm loving every minute of it. Not only are the fans varied, but so is the film's fashion. From district to kooky capital, there is surprising inspiration to be had. Although most capital citizens are a silly, ignorant bunch, they do get to wear some of the ... Read More
Hunger Games fans rejoice! Effie (who'll be played by Elizabeth Banks in the upcoming film adaptation) is now the face of China Glaze’s new line of nail prods, "Capitol Colours." In the ad, Banks-as-Effie is styled in futuristic awesomeness with nutty lashes, violet hair, and the cutest heart-shaped lipstick. China Glaze offers fans twelve new shades, from a drab gray to the sparkliest orange I've ever seen. The browns are also enticing--they have a spicy ... Read More

                   Are you one of those people who wishes porn could be a little more cinematic? Well then we have a film festival for you. Kicking off this Saturday, Good Vibrations’ 6th Annual Indie Erotic Film Festival out in San Francisco plans to celebrate smut in all its forms.

The first time I saw a screening of the new Judd Apatow/Kristin Wiig vehicle Bridesmaids, I felt like I was watching an experimental film. I'm not talking Maya Deren or Chantal Ackerman, of course. But the fact is, Bridesmaids is an experiment, intended to answer the question: what would happen if Judd Apatow made a movie for women? What would happen if the guy who's built a career on making movies that examine the adult/adolescent male psyche—its  ... Read More

Review: Bridesmaids

BY Jenni in Artsy

  The word being tossed around in relation to Kristen Wiig's star-making new comedy Bridesmaids is womance, and the portmanteau is somewhat apt but not entirely fair. Writers love a good pun or, better yet, a tidy way to label something, especially if it's a new sort of thing that we don't know quite how to handle, which, in a way, Bridesmaids is. Bridesmaids is not quite a chick flick, although it was written by Wiig and Annie Mumolo and boasts a ... Read More
After the box-office failure of Disney's The Princess and the Frog, rumor was that Disney decided that fairy tales were a thing of the past; according to the LA Times, targeting only the little-girl market just wasn't enough. The studio's latest offering, Tangled, combines a take on a classic fairy-tale princess story with more modern elements, like CGI and wacky wise-cracking sidekicks, in order to attract a broader audience. And the movie did well on opening ... Read More
