    Jonesing for Joss?

    July 17th, 2008     by Catherine Hayday     Comments

    Since there’s always big Joss love shown on this blog, I thought y’all would appreciate this. A relatively under-the-radar Joss Whedon project: “Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” Featuring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day. Think Felicia Day looks familiar? Picture her with shorter hair, maybe in a group, say, of young women with ‘potential’… Update: ooooOOOOoooo, just read the “Master Plan” behind this project. Worth reading in its entirety, but here’s a snippet: “1) Why, Joss? … READ MORE

    Lazy Sunday, I wish.

    July 6th, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

    I have to work today, busily recruiting new subscribers (only $10!) and donors (every little bit helps!) to the magazine so our upcoming issue (soon!) can get into the world without a hitch. Hanging out with my laptop, I can daydream about a lazy sunday. (For some reason, this video never gets old for me. Also, I kind of thought this was the hotness.) If you like us (and you’re already a subscriber), please consider making … READ MORE

    the big snit

    July 1st, 2008     by Anna Leventhal     Comments

    Thanks Stacey May and Mir for reminding me that national cinema doesn’t have to be cringe-inducing. What does Richard Condie’s The Big Snit have to do with feminism? Nothing in particular. Except that it contributed greatly to the personal development of this particular feminist, at least. Every time I play Scrabble I try to spell CARROST. If anyone actually succeeds in doing this, I will award them like eleventy million points, for life. … READ MORE

    Tila Tequila Takes Credit for Gay Marriage

    June 27th, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

    Because sometimes what we all need on a Friday is a good laugh. According to US Weekly, Tila Tequila (of Shot at Love fame) believes that Gays can now marry in California all thanks to her: MTV reality queen Tila Tequila says she played a part in California recently dropping its ban on gay marriage. “It is because of me – I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement,” she told Usmagazine.com at the Hollywood premiere of … READ MORE

    “You know what makes me angry? Watching you talk about how angry I am.”

    June 16th, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

    I had to post this take on the “women’s vote,” given how accurate Sarah Haskins has been about yogurt and weddings. There is something truly absurd about watching US presidential candidates talk about how we’re all waiting to see what happens on season two of Army Wives… … READ MORE

    dance party fridays: deconstructing workplace masculinity.  or something?

    March 27th, 2008     by Thea Lim     Comments

    Ok, so some might claim I’m just fishing for excuses to post this ridiculous video, but I swear, there’s something feminist about this one. On a Cincinnati news show the weather reporter Bob Herzog throws a dance party every Friday morning that there are no traffic accidents. From the Globe and Mail: The concept is simple: When there’s no traffic news on Friday morning - which happens regularly in Cincinnati, population 332,000 - it’s dance-party time in … READ MORE

    It may not have felt like it here in Toronto, but yesterday was the first day of spring. Another sign that winter’s almost done? Easter. The Shameless Bloggers are simply too busy painting eggs and eagerly awaiting the Bunny to blog. There will be limited posting over the holiday weekend. We’ll be back next week. … READ MORE

    Diamonds are For Rover.

    Maybe this whole “diamonds prove your love for a woman” trend is finally over? Perhaps the industry has shifted gears? (Thanks Daisy) No one is ever allowed to accuse me of “pampering” the dog again. Gratuitous photo of the would-be recipient of diamonds in my household, after the jump. … READ MORE

    Breast Milk Cheese

    February 20th, 2008     by Elle E.     Comments

    I’d wager my winnings from Hot Flash that we’ll all agree this video is creepy. Yes, it has the dreaded “breast-bared-but-nipple-censored” thing going on, but exactly how and why it’s so disturbing may be up for debate. From Treehugger: “This send-up of the new greenwashing trend in advertising will give you a good belly-laugh, if you don’t pause to consider the tragic fact that even human milk is not free from chemical contamination.” First I thought it was … READ MORE

    Sexism, The Las Vegas Edition

    February 18th, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

    So I’m back from my wild four-day weekend away in Las Vegas (don’t ask, it’s staying there) and thought I’d share this little sexist gem that I captured while spending way too much on nickle slots. Stereotypes of lipstick-wearing, asprin-popping, diet-crazed, emotional, hormonal, mad-spending females galore! Oh, and please note that the dog house is labeled “Men:” A closer look after the jump. … READ MORE
