Meryl, Are You High?!

While singing about “Eating Mushrooms,” Meryl Streep sure knows how to act out the trippy state of Wonderland in the New York Shakespeare Festival production of Elizabeth Swados’ musical adaptation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Alice At The Palace.

Although Streep prances around in pink overalls and bushy hair, her voice is what is really surprising, hitting multiple notes throughout her performance. While pretending to be high, Streep channels her inner Alice, using dance to represent Alice’s constantly changing shape and size.

Cartwheels and quarreling aside, Streep’s wacky 1981 performance is unlike anything we have ever seen from the Academy Award winner. Love it. [Flavorwire]

Recently, a friend of mine shared with me how unhappy she is with her body. I had been just fine with the way my body looks but once she suggested how she felt about herself, I began to notice an increase in my self-criticism. I  felt a bit more plump in my yoga pants, watched more of what I ate, and wanted  to start going to the gym. After reading about a new study, my newfound low opinion of my body is beginning to make sense; according to a new study done in the journal Sex Roles, criticism your friends place on their bodies can greatly influence the way you perceive your own.   Keep reading »

Dear The Three People Who Scrutinized My ID On My 21st Birthday,

Now, I know I look like I’m 12 years old. But this past Friday I turned 21, and I was disappointed by the various questioning and puzzled looks of confusion I received from each of you.

A rare occurrence, I awoke on the right side of the bed that Friday morning, feeling a full inch taller and a few IQ points higher. I skipped to the bathroom to brush my pearly whites, and whilst admiring my slowing-forming under-eye wrinkles, I was delighted to find 21 gray hairs sitting sprightly along my hairline.

I dressed in my adult best: a chunky brown sweater that engulfs my body, dark blue jeans, worn-down brown boots, and a highly sophisticated necklace from Forever 21, and set out to the local Bronx liquor store to rack up on booze. Keep reading »

6 Pioneering Female Porn Stars

Among life’s many distinctions, there is one that is a truly elite club that many of us will only dream of joining: the first porn start to do ___.  Somebody has to be the first — think about i! Last we learned that “erotic actress” Sylvia Kristel, who appeared in the 1974 French film “Emmanuelle,” had died of cancer at age 60. She wasn’t just any “erotic actress,” though: Sylvia Kristel was heralded by none other than People magazine as “arguably the world’s first true porn star.” “Emmanuelle” is about the wife of a diplomat living in Bangkok and their many affairs and was one of the first films with sex in it to be shown in mainstream theaters.

So that got us thinking: which other pioneering porn stars deserve our accolades?

I’d had enough with drugstore moisturizers until I found the heavenly Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. This little blessing in a bottle was just calling out to my acne-inflamed face. After using the moisturizer for the last four months, I have noticed how few breakouts I now have, how much the size of my inflammations have been reduced, and how invisible the red scarring of previous breakouts has become with every application. While the moisturizer does make my face a bit shiny at times, I’ve decided that using tons of blotting papers is worth the price of clear skin! [$15, Aveeno]

Earlier this month, my friend and I found ourselves punching tufts of air while hysterically laughing throughout our first self-defense class. At 11 a.m. on a Saturday morning, I was pumped to punch some pretend perpetrators and learn how to become more acutely aware of my surroundings.

I consider myself a human suffering from “small dog syndrome,” meaning I think I am bigger and take up more space than I actually do. While this can sometimes get me into trouble, my self-defense instructor would most likely say this defect is the best thing a 5’2″ woman can be blessed with.

Check out the five favorite things I learned at my self-defense class after the jump! Keep reading »

Did Lil’ Wayne know about these humanly lollies when he sang his infamous lyrics, “she licks me like a lollipop?” Maybe instead of wanting to lick the rapper, Wayne’s featured woman would be interested in sucking on some other body parts. Think Geek’s Gory Body Parts set includes four non-genital members, including the watermelon brain, the cherry heart, the apple finger, and the fruit punch eyeball. Just in time for the Halloween festivities, these lollipops will have you at a loss for words.  [$9.99 for all four, Think Geek]

Couples who divvy up washing dishes, cleaning the laundry, and other house chores are more likely to get divorced than couples where the woman does the homemaking by herself, according to a Norwegian study of thousands of couples called Equality in the Home.

In the study, which looked at 2007-08 data, researchers found that the 25 percent of married couples that shared housework were more likely to get divorced, compared to the 71 percent of households where the woman was in charge of doing all the chores. Interestingly, having men do the majority of the housework didn’t bode well either.  Keep reading »
