7 Creative Ways To Tell Someone To Fk Off (Without Swearing)

I don’t think I heard my mom swear much until I was over twenty. I don’t know if it was her über-Midwestern upbringing, or if that would be too precious a stereotype to apply to a woman who also raised me on action movies (like explosions-action-movies), who owned and read Steven King’s entire oeuvre, who [...]

This Marching Band Playing Rage Against The Machine Is Giving Me Life

Oh my god. This video. Is. Life. So, apparently the George Mason Green Machine is the coolest marching (“moshing” LOLOL) band of all time? They not only do a boss rendition of Rage Against the Machine’s “Bulls On Parade,” they’ve got “Beat It,” “Party Rock Anthem,” and “Pump It” in their repertoire as well. But [...]

Doctor Who, “Listen” And Coping With Trauma

I get behind on “Doctor Who” — being cable-less will do that to you — but this week’s episode was being widely touted as one of the best in years, so of course I had to make it a priority to watch. When “Doctor Who” is good, it’s really, really good; it is at heart [...]

Meredith Vieira Shares Her #WhyIStayed Story

Meredith Vieira released a segment from her talk show today in which she discusses #WhyIStayed and her own prior abusive relationship. She explained that in her situation, the abuse became gradually more frequent, transformed from threats into physical violence, and made her feel as if she was at fault for it.

Hamster Competes Against Kobayashi In Hot Dog Eating Contest

Animal abuse? The best day of this tiny hamster’s life? Hard to say! Either way, someone had the wherewithal to make a pile of itty-bitty, hamster-sized hot dogs and feed them to one lucky rodent, racing against the clock with Takeru Kobayashi, competitive eater and Guiness world record holder for the most hot dog noshed. [...]

Record Machine: Echo & The Bunnymen

I love Echo & The Bunnymen’s self-titled 1987 album almost as much as I love their 1984 masterpiece Ocean Rain, but the self-titled is the one I have on vinyl, so here we are. Let’s talk about it. Echo & The Bunnymen is the band’s fifth album, and the last one with singer Ian McCulloch before he left the band.... Read More

Lupita Nyong’o & Elmo: “I Love My Skin”

“Elmo can see that Miss Lupita’s skin is a beautiful brown color!” That’s Elmo learning all about skin when “12 Years A Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o visited “Sesame Street.” They talked about touch and tickling, but the most heartwarming part of their skin conversation is loving their skin color. I hope all the kids who [...]

Lunchtime Poll: Rom-Coms

With a box of Belgian chocolates by my side, I am watching My Best Friend’s Wedding. Again. Julia Roberts is lovely, and I have a soft spot for Cameron Diaz since discovering The Body Book. But my favourite rom-com? Now that, Persephoneers, is a difficult question. I love Four Weddings and a Funeral. It is perfection and beauty in so... Read More

Stand By Your Man, 2.0

The phenomenon of political spouses standing by their scandal-plagued husbands has become such a cliché, it’s even inspired a TV show, The Good Wife. We’ve seen women forgive men for infidelity, patronizing prostitutes, embezzling funds, and sending cringe-worthy texts, among other misbehaviors. Show More Summary

Here’s Anna Kendrick Singing To Jeremy Jordan In “The Last Five Years”

EW.com released a clip of the upcoming film version of the off-Broadway musical “The Last 5 Years,” starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan [Alas, not this Jeremy Jordan, I was sad to discover. -- Amelia], and I’m kind of melting over it. The musical follows the five-year relationship of young NYC couple Jamie and Cathy [...]

7 Reasons To Be Excited For “Transparent”

Now that September is here, new TV is inevitable. Also inevitable is bad new TV, or at least new TV that treads into conventional, well-worn territory (think “A to Z,” NBC’s new comedy which will be about — spoiler alert — finding love). Luckily, there’s a new vehicle arriving on the scene, joining Netflix as [...]

We Live In A World Of Leopard Print Nail Polish

The state of New Jersey might have you believe that everything leopard print has already been invented, but you would be wrong. Uslu Airlines is not an airlines, but a cosmetics company and they have invented what appears, according to Refinery29, to be the first leopard print nail polish. The Internet has many a leopard [...]

Guys, serious crisis: Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington, Vermont has canceled its homecoming dance due to a rampant fear of twerking.

Panda Triplets Turn One Month Old

These little pandas turned one-month old this week! The newborn bears live in a Chinese zoo, where they are believed to be the world’s only set of panda triplets. Sure, they aren’t much to look at yet and anyway, upon their birth, zookeepers told the New York Post not to get excited until they pass their [...]

If there’s anyone who should be doling out life advice to the young women of America, it’s the lady cast members of “Saturday Night Live.” So, here’s Sasheer Zamata, one of the newest (and funniest!) cast members, weighing in on dating dudes out of pity, street harassment, and other lady-problems.

Flight Diverts Because Two “Adults” Won’t Stop Fighting Over Legroom

A flight had a “Bridesmaids”-style diversion on Sunday (minus colonial woman sightings on the wing) when two passengers couldn’t stop bickering over legroom. A man and a woman headed from Newark to Denver were seated in the “Economy Plus” section of the plane, which is designed to be a bit comfier than regular coach seating (read: [...]

The Top 7 Hair Metal Videos In Which The Music Is So Powerful It Defies the Laws of Physics

I don’t know you, but I’ve spent an awful lot of my life wishing that I’d been a teenager around the time that I was born. Bon Jovi was touring for Slippery When Wet in 1987! “Here I Go Again” was topping the charts! “Talk Dirty to Me” was one of the most popular videos [...]

Movies I’m Weirdly Obsessed With: Kinky Boots

This is me apologizing to everyone I’ve ever lived with (mostly you, Mom) for watching this movie every time it pops up on TV. Kinky Boots is a “based on a true story but we won’t tell you the real ending and we took a lot of creative license” type of movie that we have seen countless times. It’s not the... Read More

Toys and Tater Tots: A Proposal Story

I feel like I’m reading a lot of stories and seeing a lot of media that feature women who complain about a lack of engagement ring. One reason for this might be a lack of representation of women proposing to men; the only pop culture portrayal I can think of is Monica proposing to Chandler on Friends. And he was already planning... Read More
