Win This! “Our Noise: The Story Of Merge Records” Book

We pretty much think the last good music made came out in the ’90s — and the guys and girls of Merge Records were behind a lot of it. Indie rock bands like Superchunk, Seam, and Neutral Milk Hotel provided the soundtrack for our teenage lives and beyond.

Merge Records is special not only because of the great music it puts out, but also because the label founders are musicians themselves. Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance of Superchunk founded the label, and it’s their artist-focused aesthetic that really drives the Merge machine. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Sports Commenter Says Ines Sainz Was “Asking For It”

  • A Fox and NFL Network sports analyst, Brian Baldinger, has said that Mexican sports reporter Ines Sainz was sexually harassed by members of the Jets football team and staff because she was “asking for it.” (And yes, that’s a direct quote.)

Trailer Park: “Easy A,” “The Town,” “Catfish,” “Leaves of Grass,” “Jack Goes Boating,” “The Freebie”

We are merely days away from autumn and thank goodness for that, because along with the sweaters and leaves comes some quality movies. This might be the first time ever that I want to see every single movie that is coming out (except for the creepy animated wolf movie I conveniently left off of the list). There’s comedy, intrigue, romance, and a lot of amazing actors who’ve been on the down-low for a bit. There’s the eagerly awaited “Easy A,” the Ben Affleck-directed “The Town,” reality thriller “Catfish,” and Edward Norton‘s newest, “Leaves of Grass.” Also: Philip Seymour Hoffman learns to swim in “Jack Goes Boating” and Dax Shepard and his wife make a deal with “The Freebie.” Go see a frickin’ movie. And call your mother—she worries. Keep reading »

Would You Ever Give Your Significant Other A Freebie?

What keeps a couple together — and can a relationship survive the perils of a one-night stand? That’s the question behind the new film “The Freebie,” starring Katie Aselton and Dax Shepard, opening today. Aselton, who also wrote and directed the film, plays a dissatisfied wife, married to Shepard and looking to inject their relationship with a little of the passion it once had. The couple concoct a plan to give each other each “one freebie” — one opportunity to sleep with someone else that the other person picks out — no strings attached. But can a monogamous relationship really withstand a couple of one-night stands?

We want to know: Would you ever give your partner a “freebie”? Keep reading »
