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.

Baby Mama star Amy Poehler and her husband Will Arnett are expecting their first child. The only sucky thing about this is that Amy will probably have to take off SNL for maternity leave and the show won’t be as funny. Mazel Tov nonetheless! [Us Weekly] … READ MORE »

The “Modern Love” column in this Sunday’s New York Times was about a woman who dates a musician who has a kid with a woman he briefly dated. The guy turns out to be a bit of a child himsef, but the whole piece got me thinking about whether I would be down for dating… READ MORE »

Yesterday at the Bust Spring Fling Craftacular, I went to Sprout Jewelry’s booth four times to ogle this ring. They only had one for sale and the finger it fit is the one I wear my dang engagement ring on. For some reason, my ring finger on my right hand is fatter. Anyway, I had… READ MORE »

“I have platinum blonde hair, and I’m extremely curvy: I pour myself into a dress and show up and strut my stuff at premieres. Of course I expect people will have certain ideas but it’s weird if people associate the fact that I sell handbags or wear a bikini with who I am when I… READ MORE »

Last night I was watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians — in the episode, Khloe and Kourtney got pissed at Kim because she was buying a Bentley and acting like a big princess. Their retort was that Kim may be a princess, but that they, Kim and Kourtney, are queens. Ooh, snap, right? Then this… READ MORE »

Angelina Jolie hasn’t signed on for a movie that didn’t suck for years (except, maybe, A Mighty Heart and, of course, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), but I really hope that Wanted will be an exception. James McAvoy. Actually using his sexy brogue. Guns. Violence. Assassins. Morgan Freeman narrating. A sex scene that even… READ MORE »

Remember when you used to run to the grocery store to see if the latest issues of Tiger Beat and Big Bopper were on the stands so you could tear out the foldout posters of the hottest teen idols? Yeah well, we found tons of those clippings for sale on eBay. Here’s a retrospective on… READ MORE »

Yesterday we posted a review of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, a movie which has an R-rating despite the fact that there’s a whole lotta peen to be seen. Apparently, the film was able to avoid an NC-17 rating because the ratings board told the filmmakers that star Jason Segal’s penis would have to remain flaccid during… READ MORE »

We love it when smarty-pants people, like MIT grads Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, use their brilliance for things like curing disease and/or making jewelry. This “Full Moon” necklace from their “Nervous System” line is a “one of a kind composition born from the intersection of rapid prototyping and pattern generating algorithms.” Yeah, we don’t… READ MORE »

Today is the National Day Of Silence, which brings attention to anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. This year’s event is being held in memory of Lawrence King, a California 8th-grader who was shot and killed by a classmate because of his sexual orientation. Though we can’t literally keep our… READ MORE »
