You’re Beautiful Just The Way You Are, Says The Magazine Stand

Most of us have a love-hate relationship with lady mags, but art activist Lillian Hsu stands defiantly in the “anti-” camp. She’s flinging spitballs at the glossies that exist to tell you to count calories with magazine-sized posters that read “Beautiful Just The Way You Are.” She’s suggesting other activists print out her posters and leave a couple amidst the magazines at bookstores, supermarkets, libraries, and waiting rooms. That’s quite cool! [BJTWYA] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Bruno,” “I Love You Beth Cooper,” And “Humpday”

Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen another human being in five days, but I’m really enthusiastically excited about the movies coming out this week. They all share a certain theme, which happens to be my favorite: awkwardness! First, “Brüno” gets audiences all blushy by showing his waxed man body (and balls, apparently?). Then a nerd goes for the cheerleader (shocker) in “I Love You, Beth Cooper.” And finally, two men take bromance to the next level in “Humpday.” Bye! I’ll be at the movies with my new friends, butter and slushy. Keep reading »

Some Hope For Laura Ling And Euna Lee

Finally, some good news has come from North Korea about detained journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee. Despite being sentenced to 12 years of hard labor last month for illegally entering North Korea, the pair is currently staying at a guest house in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang. This update comes just days after Lisa Ling received a relieving phone call from her sister. According to political scientist Han Park, “North Korea’s move not to carry out the sentence suggests that it could release them through a dialogue with the United States and they could be set free at an early date, depending on the U.S. gesture.” Keeping my fingers crossed for their safe return!

An 83-Year-Old Couple Parties Way More Than You Do!

I go out once a week, maybe, and my mother still sends Alcoholics Anonymous pamphlets and shows concern for the fact that I’ll never meet my future husband unless I stop being such a party girl. Meanwhile, over in Rotherham, UK, a pair of 83-year-olds named Jack and Jean Atkinson are raving three nights a week until 3am. The couple has been married for 64 years—they met in 1945 and got married 15 days later. They have three kids and four grandkiddies, but nothing can keep them from living their lives to the fullest. Which, to them, includes clubbing. As Jack says, “Where is it written that when you reach a certain age you can’t do this or shouldn’t do that—it’s rubbish it is all in the mind…We’re old in age but young at heart.” Keep reading »
