Everyone should see “The Nutcracker” ballet at least once in their lifetime. And if you’re demented like me, you should see the ballet/burlesque fusion show “The Slutcracker” at least once, too!

Whereas traditional ballet celebrates poise and elegance,  ”The Slutcracker” turns the traditional Christmastime show on its head with satirical, saucy performances involving pole dancing and BDSM. It’s the brainchild of former ballet dancer Vanessa White and has run for four holiday seasons in Somerville, Massachusetts. In an interview with Tufts Daily student newspaper, Vanessa explained how she danced ballet for 11 years but gravitated towards burlesque after an injury. Vanessa also edited Boink, the erotica magazine for Boston University, and went on to found a burlesque troupe called Babes In Boinkland. In an entirely natural way, “The Slutcracker” became a melding of all these interests. Keep reading »

Here Are Your 2012 Golden Globe Nominees!

Let the award season begin! This morning, the nominees for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards were announced in Hollywood. I can’t contain my excitement: Ryan Gosling got nominated for two — yes, two — awards, for “Crazy Stupid Love” and “The Ides of March”! (Bradley Cooper was nominated for zero.) He is up against Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“50/50″) in the Best Actor Drama category, so if Julie and I are snippy with each other till the end of the month, you know why. I was also thrilled to see Tilda Swinton (“We Need To Talk About Kevin”) and Charlize Theron (“Young Adult”) get nominated in the Best Actress Drama category; Kristen Wiig got a nod for “Bridesmaids” while Melissa McCarthy was curiously overlooked; and “American Horror Story” and “Game of Thrones” got their due. I was bummed to see Kirsten Dunst (“Melancholia”), Ezra Miller (“We Need To Talk About Kevin”), Patton Oswalt (“Young Adult”), and Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”) overlooked, but what can ya do? Check out the full list of nominees, after the jump. Who are you rooting for?  Keep reading »

7 Insane Festivals You Won’t Believe Are Legal

Ah, the holidays: A time to give thanks, spend time with family, eat good food, light your neighbors on fire, rub engine oil in grandma’s eyes, get drunk, fight a bull and dress up in a white tuxedo to ward off the furious ghosts of fish. What, that doesn’t sound like your holidays? Well, friend, it sounds like you’ve been celebrating the wrong ones. Let’s get that calendar of yours set straight.

#7. Batalla de la Rata Muerta: In the annual Fiesta de San Pedro Nolasco, instead of a pinata they have something called a “cucana.” It’s a very similar concept, except that with the cucana, the chances of candy are only 50-50. The other 50 is a dead rat. Which is then retrieved from the ground and used as a projectile because fuck-you-I-didn’t- get-candy. Read more…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The “The Iron Lady” Premiere

Meryl As Margaret

A little birdie (that would be me) attended the New York City premiere of “The Iron Lady” last night and boy, were there a lot of celebs! Somehow I managed to stand three feet away from Meryl Streep without screetching “EEEE! I LOVE YOU!” and subsequently getting arrested. Somehow I doubt Amelia could exercise similar restraint were she in the presence of The Gos.

Perhaps due to the serious nature of the film — a biopic of Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom — the ladies in attendance opted for a sober little black dress look. Some were hits, some were misses. And Coco Rocha, bless her heart, accidentally got lost on the way to the Oscars red carpet.

Check out all the looks — the good, the bad, and the straight-up WTF — above!
