Musing #37: Thirty-Five in Los Angeles (or, Parked in a Red Zone)

Sep 26, 2014

On the ninth of this month, I turned 35. (I was, obviously, in Los Angeles.) On the thirteenth of this month, from Manhattan Island one year ago, I used this bully bloggish pulpit to comment that my 34th birthday had been “a 2×4 to the [f]ace.” I did not say so at the time, but the fact is that what bothered me most about 34 was its horrifying...

From juggling to balancing–how can we maintain our sanity and health with a crazy busy lifestyle? By Jen Kahn We’ve all been there. Something big changes in your life and suddenly it’s front and center; all other parts of life fade into the background. Like a new job, a new relationship, a move, a health-kick, a health issue, break-up, even a new puppy....

Bad Girl Movies That I Love

Sep 23, 2014

Weekly I write about a particular character in a particular film. This week I wanted to throw some titles out there containing characters and movies I have not written about that are fun films to watch. Eventually these ladies will end up with their own columns but in the meantime check out these fun flicks. “Run Lola Run” (1988) Rated:R “Run...

The Day Facebook Made Me Change My Name

The Day Facebook Made Me Change My Name

Sep 22, 2014

It seems like it started with Sister Roma,  a member of the performing drag troupe Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. She went online only to find out she had been locked out of her account. This happened to several other performers as well. Facebook sent each of them a notice stating per their name policy that they would need to change the name on their account...

Domestic Violence and the NFL

Domestic Violence and the NFL

Sep 18, 2014

By Mo Breden There is no way that I could write my blog post this week without addressing domestic violence and the NFL.   I look at Janay Palmer Rice and I fear for her, I worry about what he’s done to her prior to the elevator, I worry about what he will do to her in the future, and I know she is more susceptible to his violence now than she ever was.  I...

By Jeremy Scheinberg Most people think a Kickstarter (or other crowdfunding) campaign begins the moment you click “Launch.”  If only it were that simple!  The unfortunate reality is that a Kickstarter campaign has three parts – the Pre-Launch, the Campaign, and (hopefully) the Post-Campaign (otherwise known as, how do you efficiently spend a pile of money...

Writer’s Block

Sep 16, 2014

Today’s column did not go as planned. This week I intended to do a column about Heather Langenkamp in Wes Craven’s “New Nightmare” but I cannot figure out what the column wants to be. I am having a case of writer’s block which is a horrible thing when you are a writer. So instead I am writing a column on the fact the Halloween (my...

In Case No One Told You, You Look Fine.

Sep 11, 2014

You look fine. You look like you. If no one has told you lately, or ever, let me. You are fine. You look like you are supposed to look—and it is perfect. Perfect is a loaded word, isn’t it? I could literally HEAR your eyes rolling as you read that line. “I don’t look perfect! I have “x” pounds to lose, my boobs are too “x”, my flab is too floppy.” Etc. But...
