Style Stealer: Kerry Washington’s Graphic Garment

Kerry Washington’s Mary Katrantzou dress is sleek, colorful and totally awesome. It also costs upwards of $2000, which means you could either pay your rent for a couple of months, or buy this dress. We say, pay your rent and go for a less expensive version of this graphic, thoroughly modern look.

The Soapbox: Please, Can “Hipster Sexism” Not Be A Thing?

I have very mixed feelings about a piece on NYMag.com’s blog about “hipster sexism.” The authors Alissa Quart and Lauren Sandler author Alissa Quart described “hipster sexism” as:
Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox … ads, photographs, television shows, films, and T-shirts, which…

Random Bald & Spectacled Triplet Alert!

Hmm, Katy Perry’s dad looks awfully familiar to me. If you took a couple dozen years off Junior Soprano and Mr. Six, the scary dancing Six Flags guy, and threw in a cross and a leather vest, well, you’d have Keith Hudson. Random! [Center Photo: Pacific Coast News]

8 Favorite Literary Horror Heroines

Halloween’s about dressing up and eating candy (and, for many adults, getting incredibly drunk). But that doesn’t have to be all it’s about. Back in 2010 Neil Gaiman suggested a new Halloween tradition of giving away a scary book to a friend on that most spooky of holidays.

This Is Why Everyone Is Working From Home In NYC Today

This is an image taken directly from the New York City MTA of what one of the downtown subway stations looks like post-Hurricane Sandy. That’s an entire subway tunnel full of water — and salt water at that — which rusts out subway trains and tracks, leaving them non-functioning. Whoa boy.
