  In light of the recent verdict from a Moscow judge that put Russian feminist punk rock band, Pussy Riot, behind bars for two years, let’s take a look at the Russian media’s position on feminism.  A documentary made by Russian TV follows anti-feminist groups in different countries, as they conspire to fight "the war against feminism".  The documentary focuses on Switzerland, where men from different social interest organizations, ...

A few weeks back, pop culture critic Anita Sarkeesian launched a kickstarter campaign in an attempt to raise $6000 to fund a web-video series for her website Feminist Frequency. In the video series, Sarkeesian wanted to discuss the sexist and stereotypical representations of women in video games, to which I say, “well, duh,” as well as, “get it, girl!” Unfortunately, it would be an understatement to say that not everyone shared my same ...

Although I find that Carly Rae Jepsen’s song “Call Me Maybe,” perpetuates the stereotype that I have to wait for a guy to call me (if I am interested, I WILL CALL YOU!), I still find it incredibly catchy. And apparently Cookie Monster does too because, from the makers of Sesame Street, a new spoof of the song went viral this week. The version, “Share It Maybe” riffs off what Cookie Monster knows best—his love affair with ... Read More
At only 12 years old, Jeremiah McDonald made a videotape for himself to watch in the future. The now 32-year-old actor and filmmaker recently unearthed the old video and made another, 20 years later, in which he pops in the tape, pours himself a drink, and has a conversation with a younger, curious version of himself. From asking if his old pets are still alive to making sure he still likes Dr. Who, the results are both hilarious and poignant. And here I thought I ... Read More
Timeless Seasons is a new shopping network that has all of the products you could ever dream up: powerful pepper grinders, convenient teeth whiteners, portable entertainment systems, and more! Except the grinder makes flatulence sounds when you twist it, the whiteners kind of turn you into a zombie, and the entertainment tablet causes high-pitched interferences. In fact, it isn’t a shopping network at all. Timeless Seasons is a comedy trio of three funny ... Read More
Writer/producer Jon Avnet (of Black Swan and Fried Green Tomatoes fame) and director Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs) have teamed with YouTube to produce a series of five- to eight-minute dramas for the site’s new lady-friendly, online-only channel, Wigs. (Its logo, above, looks a bit like it's advertising a fancy new OB/GYN clinic, but we'll try not to hold it against them). Since Avnet and Garcia have serious Hollywood clout, they were able to rope in an ... Read More
After reading a comment posted by a "shellylovelace" on a YouTube video that suspiciously sounded like our old friend Courtney Love, I followed the link back to discover internetz GOLD: Courtney's own YouTube Channel. With categories including "Guilty Pleasures" -- where we discover that Courtney enjoys watching old Go Gos videos, and the war between Joan Rivers and Chelsea Handler on Howard Stern--to "Freak Assed Shit"--which includes videos of her mother, Linda ...

If you're anything like me, you love cats and NPR, (and you need to quit jocking my swag because cats and NPR are/have always been my thing…) so listen up because you're going to enjoy this. Shanthony Exum, better known as Miss Eaves, is currently writing six songs in as many weeks. She's asking fans to vote on the topic of each song on her Facebook.   Last week she brought us this gem about cats: You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
It's no secret that kids say and do the darndest things. The absolute darndest. So it should come as no surprise that hilarious, precocious, and delightfully obnoxious kids have become the subjects for countless YouTube favorites. I’ve picked some cherished, pee-your-pants videos--I hope you enjoy. Anna Graceman, the talented 11-year-old from this season of America’s Got Talent, isn't the only member of the Graceman family who's starting her celebrity ... Read More
When you break up with someone, how does it make you feel? What do you do to help yourself cope? In the music video for her song “Dresser Drawer,” singer sami.the.great deals with this situation in a gentle, honest, and even somewhat funny way. Her voice is lovely, the concept for the video is creative, and the song? Catchy! (I especially love all the unusual sounds she uses in the synth-y percussive beat that runs throughout the track.) But enough ... Read More
