Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

There are so many reasons to love Stephen Colbert, and today’s reason is that he totally made Philip Weiss his bitch. Weiss is the writer behind that hateful New York story, “The Affairs Of Married Men”, which enraged me while I was on vacation. Colbert calls Weiss out, asking, “Isn’t there any chance… READ MORE »

Remember that poll we posted yesterday about the two couples who embarked on a daily sex regimen to add the spice back into their love life? I was surprised to see the overwhelming support behind this idea (so far, over half of you are game!) and decided to quiz the guys on my IM as… READ MORE »

You know, no matter where you stand on the abortion debate, toying with women’s lives through false advertising is pretty effed up. We’ve read a lot about “pregnancy crisis centers”, which seem like abortion clinics, but really only offer “counseling” that scares and guilt trips pregnant women into not getting abortions. Likewise, it’s really frickin’ READ MORE »

So, this week I decided to make an entire mixtape of songs with the word “cry” in the title, because I am a giant cry baby. I cried on Friday night! And on Sunday! Oh, and last night when I saw this Cheerios commercial that I love. Anyway, some of the greatest songs in the… READ MORE »

This morning I was watching VH1 on accident (I am more of a MTV kind-of-girl) and this video from some dude named Justin Nozuka came on the tube. He sings those kind of songs that you sing around a beach bonfire — like Jack Johnson or Ben Harper-type jams. I went to college in Santa… READ MORE »

Catherine took this picture with her camera phone this weekend and sent it to me. Fake hickey tattoos! Sadly, she didn’t buy them. I forgave her once she found the website where you can order them online — my Lindsay Lohan Halloween costume is almost complete. [Fortune3.com] … READ MORE »

Jon Hamm plays Don Draper on Mad Men, you know, that show I am totally obsessed with right now. Don is mysterious and complex and seriously sexy, even when he is being a total a-hole to his wife. Relative to the other d-bags he works with at the Sterling-Cooper ad agency, he treats his secretary… READ MORE »

The New York Times had an interesting article in the Style section about two couples, both with books coming out, who made a commitment to have sex every day for a set period of time. One couple did it everyday for a year, the other for 101 days straight. The premise was that to keep… READ MORE »

Currently, I am majorly obsessed with the show Mad Men on AMC. If you haven’t seen it, you must give it a go, before the second season starts in a month. The show is about the advertising men on Madison Avenue during the early 1960s and is just brilliantly written and art directed. READ MORE »

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren welcomed a baby girl yesterday. Okay, so congrats! But we’re confused. Hasn’t Angelina Jolie, not to mention Nicole Kidman, been pregnant longer? [Us Weekly]
