My Love Letter To Fanzines

Before the Internet took over our lives and blogs and Tumblrs were the common parlance for self-indulgent self-expression, there were fanzines. And I had one. Actually, a few.

It’s hard to imagine a time before the Internet was able to connect people with like-minded obsessions so quickly and easily, but 20 years ago,…

Get Your “Game Of Thrones” Fix

It’s Crack A Book Week here at The Frisky, so what better time to start a page-turning series that will keep you occupied for the next few months? A hole was left in our pop culture-loving hearts when HBO’s “Game of Thrones” came to an end a few weeks ago, but the book series that…

Everything I need to know I learned from a Countess LuAnn de Lesseps music video. Last year, we were taught that “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” And now in her new video for “Chic, C’est La Vie,” LuAnn has the following lessons to share: (a) saying a few French words makes you…

Lindsay Lohan has paid her debt to society. Yesterday marked the end of the 35 day in-home detention sentence she received after the infamous stolen necklace case in February. Off came the ankle monitor! She’s officially a free woman. Woo-hoo! We see a party on the horizon. But now that Lindsay claims she is clean

An Open Letter To Kate Middleton’s Hair

Dear Kate Middleton’s Hair,

I know it’s kind of awkward to write you a letter, because, well, you’re hair and I’m not even sure that you know how to read, but I really need to talk to you. I would have called, but I don’t know the number for your direct line.

Anna Paquin Is Totally Comfortable With Her Bisexuality

Trust Me, I’m Doing You A Favor By Not Posting James Franco’s Music Video

God, James effing Franco. I hate James Franco so much. Why? James Franco believes — and the world seems to be all too happy to confirm — that he is smarter and more clever and funnier than he really is. He is not any of those things! It’s a conspiracy! Don’t believe it, people! Look,…

Quickies: Quentin Tarantino’s Toe-Sucking Tell-All & The Kate Moss Wedding Sound Insane

This tacky woman emailed 15 of her friends after going home with director Quentin Tarantino after a party … and now it’s on Gawker. I shouldn’t judge, though. I would probably do the same thing if Tarantino sucked on my toes. [Gawker]
Tracy Morgan has moved on from joking about stabbing gays and…

Beware Of Courtney Love, Etsy Sellers

Despite her alleged credit problems, Courtney Love has discovered a new way to rip retailers off: Etsy. Her favorite purchases on the online marketplace include a $450 vintage Hungarian wedding dress, assorted crystals, and a $58,000 George Harvey original painting. But surprise! She doesn’t pay vendors on time. Courtney recently posted a rather articulate (and…

Michele Bachmann: What Sexist BS Can She Expect While Running For President?

Rep. Michele Bachmann formally announced on Monday she is seeking the Republican nomination for President. The feminist within me says, “Yay, someone with a vagina running for president!” Followed by a vehement, “OH HELL NO.” Just because a woman is running for president does not mean all women should support her. Just like Sarah Palin

Who Should David Duchovny Date Next?

It appears that Tea Leoni and David Duchovny will soon be a folder in the Ex Files. (Bad pun. Sorry, had to.) After 14 years of marriage, the two have separated. Again. You’ll probably remember that they also split in 2008 when it came to light that David suffered from sex addiction. But after he…

Beyoncé Excited To Turn 30, Starting To Think About Babies

“I’m gonna be 30. I can’t wait because 29 is very strange. You’re still in your 20s but you feel like you’re supposed to be 30, and I feel like a woman. I feel like 30 is the ideal age because you’re mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and…

I Know Why The Caged Poetry Bomber Sings

 

I was wondering why “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” was sewn into the crotch of my bikini bottoms. I must have been poetry bombed by one of Augstina Woodgate’s people. Poetry bombers visit thrift stores and sew lines of poetry into random pieces of clothing to bring poetry to the…
