Kate Torgovnick/Kate-Book.com | July 27, 2009 - 8:40 pm

While most of you were drooling over “True Blood” last night, I had much more important things to attend to.

Summer is really great, but aren’t you sooo bored with all the nice weather and nature and crap? Yeah, we get it, it’s pretty out, now stop gloating you hussy season.

Scraping The Bottom Of The Reality Show Barrel

Justine Fields | July 23, 2009 - 8:30 pm

Are they just giving away reality shows these days? Long-forgotten musicians, football players no one really cares about, an E! network host?! These people are not worthy of the average citizen’s 15 minutes, let alone a production company’s money. Seriously, TV executives are looking to the end of the F-list to find subjects for their… More »

Carrie Wasterlain | July 23, 2009 - 12:00 pm

Alyssa Rosenberg of The Atlantic recently ranted about overly idealized relationships and a lack of intimate adult sex scenes in the Harry Potter series, accusing J.K.

Justine Fields | July 22, 2009 - 7:00 pm

Why is no one obsessing about the new gymnastics show “Make It Or Break It“? It’s on ABC Family and is technically for teens, but even though there’s a cheesy family moment at the end of every episode, this show is totally awesome!

Trendsday: Why Is Ayn Rand Suddenly Everywhere?

Ami Angelowicz | July 22, 2009 - 6:50 pm

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny the controversial impact of Ayn Rand. Just mentioning her name can illicit unpredictable and impassioned responses. When I first read and fell in love with The Fountainhead in college, I didn’t realize that becoming a Rand fan meant I was automatically an Objectivist and a heartless, self-serving… More »

Amelia McDonell-Parry | July 22, 2009 - 6:10 pm

The trailer for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” has finally come down the rabbit hole and it looks a-maaaazing. Johnny Depp, in particular, looks deliciously wicked, definitely channeling the same dark kookiness of his version of Willy Wonka. Only this time, we hope his brilliance is fully appreciated.

The Worst Library Books Ever

Nikki Dowling | July 22, 2009 - 4:20 pm

Two librarians from Michigan, Mary and Holly, have given us yet another website to make Tuesday mornings at the office completely unproductive.

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: A Kate And Hailey Cat Fight? Mischa’s Drug Binge?

Amelia McDonell-Parry | July 22, 2009 - 2:30 pm

Tabloids are kind of like elaborate ventures into fan-fiction. Basically, they watch celebrities and then pick and choose where the stories would go if they had their way. Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if these characters fell in love and had to fight for each other? Oh, this celeb is sick—let’s make it heroin! This… More »
