A radical pedestrian revolution is underway in America! Or at least, that’s what The Guardian is reporting. Acting Surgeon General Boris Lushniak said we should “go retro!” and treat walking as our patriotic duty – and indeed, the Society of Actuaries has estimated that if just 1 in 10 Americans started a walking program, America… More »
Are you a man who is getting married, but feels sad that your soon-to-be-wife gets to go to like, three different parties in which people shower her with gifts and praise while you get one scuzzy party in Atlantic City with a stripper that your brother’s friend found, but you really didn’t want? Do you… More »
I have conflicting feelings about street art. I became a big fan a few years ago, not via watching “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” but via strolling around Chicago neighborhoods where street art abounds. It was like a treasure hunt: In the midst of hundreds of paste-ups and stickers, sometimes I’d find something really beautiful… More »
It took me a while to pick up Chris Bower’s Little Boy Needs Ride, but Bower is a reliably dark, funny, and compelling storyteller. This is Bower’s first collection of stories, illustrated by Chicago artist Susie Kirkwood, and I am fully prepared to laugh my weird ass off. More »
Over the past few years, the lifestyle blogosphere (and Pinterest) has been overflowing with DIY coffee scrub recipes that claim to reduce cellulite and make our skin glow. First off, I know it’s been said that caffeine can reduce the appearance of cellulite, but has that been actually studied? (It probably has, I’m just suspicious.) I… More »
Warm weather means long sunny weekends and the sudden itch to explore someplace new, so why not start with your own backyard? If you need a break from the big cities and major sights, hop in the car and take a day trip close to home. No matter where… More »
Remember just a week ago when users on Chinese social media site Weibo launched the belly button challenge? Well, they’ve come up with another Bizarro World way to prove that you’re skinny enough for something something something, and it’s called the collarbone challenge (I will not grant either of these things the dignity of caps).

Here is a tale as old as time, from the pages of the New York Times. A mid-thirtes woman is in therapy. She is in therapy to discuss a variety of issues, from career concerns to personal things, and her therapist, a kind and benevolent man, helps her through these issues, because that is his job,… More »
New York artist Lorraine Loots is organizing an art exhibit for ants! Well, kind of. The artist has made a name for herself on social media for her miniature (and insanely detailed) paintings, many just a few millimeters tall. Now she’ll be exhibiting 730 of her ant-sized paintings at Brooklyn’s Three Kings Studio, but only… More »
I had never heard of Simple Sugars scrubs until a few weeks ago (how is that possible?), but most of the world knows the product through the entrepreneur-focused reality show “Shark Tank.” Creator and company founder Lani Lazzari was just eighteen-years-old when she appeared on the show in 2013 to seek out investors, and her busine… More »
I grew up with a meat-and-potatoes, South Dakota- and Nebraska-raised mother. The woman wasn’t exposed to seafood much as a kid, except for canned tuna, and in turn she didn’t expose us to it much, either. One of my sisters developed a taste for it anyway, but now she’s a vegan, so it’s a moot… More »

I can’t really remember the last time that I went to any kind of church service. It may have been May 2012, at my cousin’s wedding. It was shortly after that that I started my path down the atheist rabbit hole, studying the art of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and, eventually, falling out of my faith.
I’ve wondered… More »
