The Colour of Beauty is a short documentary that follows aspiring model, Renee Thompson, as she attempts to take on New York City's fashion industry.  The video uncovers that the fashion industry still lacks true diversity.  Designers and casting agents still believe that black women won't sell magazines, products or clothing.   From casting calls where black models are told not to even bother to the horrendous scrutinization of their slightly ...

An article on Jezebel, got me thinking about the affect MAD MEN mania may have on our culture. In a blurb about a recent study from the UK newspaper, The Telegraph (regarding the shocking treatment of modern secretaries), Jezebel posted a picture of the gals from Mad Men. Though Jez didn't explain the choice in photography, it is clear when one thinks of a misogynistic office environment, one thinks of our favorite ad agency, Sterling Cooper. During the Mad Men ...

This Woman Rocks

BY Web Intern in General

In a time where the economy is in the dump and horrendous news stories keep popping up (15 year old gang rape outside school?!), there is a woman who is perking people up with her never-ending determination. Lan Yin Tsai, 84, bikes 150 miles (in a straight shot) for multiple sclerosis research every year. Donning a dress and high heels, which is her normal biking outfit, Tsai is a staple at the annual City to Shore ride in New Jersey and is a symbol of hope ... Read More

Hot Mormon Muffins?!

BY Web Intern in General

Oh goodness, you'll either find this calendar chuckle-worthy and silly or find its use of female sexuality to show another side of the Mormon faith loathsome. From the creators of the Men on a Mission calendar, which features attractive-ish, shirtless Mormon missionaries who have served on full-time missions for their church, comes a calendar with 'twelve beautiful Mormon mothers posing in kitschy vintage pin-up style.' If that wasn't enough for you, each ... Read More
Anyone ever attend the Lilith Fair back in the day? When LF was in its hey-day, which was 1997-1999, it was one of the highest grossing touring festivals in the world and included such spectacular ladies such as Sarah McLachlan (who also co-founded!), Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu, Missy Elliot, The Pretenders, Nelly Furtado, Jewel, Queen Latifah, Indigo Girls, Tegan and Sara, and many others. About six months ago, LF co-founder Terry McBride announced through ... Read More

Well, listen it was a dark and stormy night when Mum set sail all the way from Iceland to play a show at (Le) Poisson Rouge on October 24th. I'll always remember it well; the rain was falling, the sky was further darkened by a canopy of interweaving black umbrellas held by the people waiting to get inside of the sold out show, and everyone inside was either swapping spit or getting into fist fights over God knows what. I couldn't paint a prettier picture of an ... Read More

'Roid Rage Returns!

BY Web Intern in General

When Polaroid canned its famous instant film last year, there wasn't a hipster, nor modeling agency, nor mall Santa photographer that didn't bemoan the loss. Sure it's expensive. Sure digital is faster/cleaner/crisper. But even in this age of boundless technology, there's nothing quite as fascinating as whatever magic makes a face peek out from behind Polaroid's square of brown mystery goo. And now, over a year after our fave film was said to be gone for good, ... Read More
