Confession: Last night, I read the New York magazine piece, “I Just Want to Feel Everything’: Hiding Out With Fiona Apple Musical Hermit,” not once, but three times. I think it was one of the best music interviews I’ve read in a long time. I’ve always been a Fiona Apple fan. Tidal came out my first year of college and I think I listened to the CD (we still had CDs back then) until it cracked. “The Child Is Gone,” my favorite track on the album, inspired me to turn some of my poems into songs. Back then, I thought I was going to be a performer. And actually, my voice is similar to Fiona’s, we have that brassy alto thing going on. Though I went down a different path, I’ve followed Fiona’s career, owned all of her albums, and came to think of her as the woman living my phantom dream existence. I can’t help but be inspired by the way she hermits herself for years and reemerges with a brilliant new album with an octopus on her head.  She can continue to rant about stuff, smoke hash out of a champagne flute and cloister herself off from the world all she wants. And I will watch admiringly from afar, living vicariously through the abandon with which she flings herself into her work. Below, some of my favorite quotes from the interview. Keep reading »

All feminist blogger Anita Sarkeesian wanted to do was create a new project aimed at examining common tropes in video games through a feminist lens. Sarkeesian, who blogs at FeministFrequency.com, was hoping that the new web series “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games,” would offer a new, in-depth view on gender representation in video games and throughout gaming culture. She needed $6,000 to fund the venture, so she launched a Kickstarter campaign (the video for the project is after the jump), and pledged to make the web series available free online upon completion.

No big deal, right? It should have been a simple project to get support for and fund. But then her project caught the attention of anti-feminist, anti-woman trolls. Keep reading »

Olivia Wilde "Acts Hard"

Last night, Olivia Wilde was on the “The Colbert Report” to promote her new film, “People Like Us.” While that movie looks like a total snooze and I can’t co-sign on Chris Pine’s stupid eyebrows, Olivia seems like a totally rad lady. She stumped for Obama, wore her Dogs Against Romney pin, and challenged Colbert to an acting contest to see “who could act harder.” [Comedy Central]

My boyfriend Nick is an old man trapped in a 26-year-old’s body. He’s usually in his pajama pants by 7:30 p.m., it’s not uncommon for him to use the phrase “Why is everyone in such a hurry?” while driving, and his knowledge of pop culture is mostly limited to the “House Party” trilogy. This is why I was shocked when “Call Me Maybe,” the ridiculously catchy song by Carly Rae Jepsen, came on the radio the other day and Nick started listing off some interesting facts about the song and its singer. Too bad none of them were even close to being true. I have no idea where he gets his information, but in any case, here are five things my boyfriend genuinely believes to be true about Carly Rae Jepsen… Keep reading »

Remember When Julia Stiles Played A Streetwise Hacker On “Ghostwriter”?

"Can you jam with the console cowboys in cyberspace?"

Lucky for us, the internet remembers. What’s the internet, you ask? Well, according to Julia Stiles’ character in this clip from a 1993 “Ghostwriter” episode, “It’s a world where you’re judged by what you say and think, not by what you look like, a world where curiosity and imagination equals power.” God, I miss the ’90s.
