I first came out as bisexual in high school in a scary wasteland called Montana in 1999. Now, I wasn’t out to everybody, but enough people guessed I was queer of some sort I routinely got called the f word. I came out to more people as bisexual in high school than I did trans […]
Happy Friday, unicorns! Let’s see you into the weekend with some science, entertainment news, and more.
Oh, Republicans. Y’all need to stop. So do a lot of other people. But we also get to find out why men shouldn’t wear suits (yes they should!), check out some misandristic accessories, and have a moon party! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
2011 became the year when so many of my favorites decided to have new releases, and it became a very happy listening time. In some ways, it’s difficult to say which song from the following fifteen is my favorite, but once you reach the end, it will be obvious to anyone who has followed my […]
We’re five weeks away from the end of this fair column, and the Aughts’ closing year provides us with musical riches. My picks are rather indie-tastic this time around, punctuated by a couple of pop radio favorites. Join me:
They are both musical. They both go by the first name Lady. They’ve both had songs covered on Glee. But who am I kidding? This is where the similarities end.
I don’t really follow Lady Gaga, but one of my lovely readers sent me a link to one of her recent tweets, and it bummed me out. The tweet read:
At first glance “Marry the Night” is a biopic of Lady Gaga’s worst day ever: the day she was dropped from Island Def Jam. But on closer reflection, one might understand its Warholian roots. Gaga, who has admitted her Warhol influence from her first appearance on the scene in 2007, never really left him behind. […]
Working at a place with constant overhead music that is the same rotation of 40 songs has really expanded my music horizons. I always have a song stuck in my head from my job’s soundtrack, and when I finally get around to looking it up I am always surprised at the artist. Today’s song is […]
Lady Gaga’s immensely popular new album Born This Way is presumably her “manifesto” (a word Gaga has been throwing around of late) for inclusion, celebrating difference, and celebrating self. Some reviewers have called this album a more authentic, “real” Lady Gaga than the personality she projected on her previous albums: as one who parties, drinks […]
A friend of mine made a comment on Facebook the other day that got me thinking. He said (in the most respectful way possible) that even though Lady Gaga is on a non-stop media blitz right now and even though she’s usually in various states of undress, she doesn’t manage to get a (ahem) rise […]
I found today’s witty gentleman in the wild, wild internets through a link on Lifehacker. I sent off an email asking if he’d like to be a witty gentlemen for a bunch of bookish, clever women and his answer was an enthusiastic “yes.” Click through to find out more about him and get a link […]
Jessie J was recently quoted in an interview as saying Lady Gaga has “set the bar so high for everyone else. She’s made normal artists and music ‘boring’ which really bothers me. It pisses me off when people say Leona’s boring. No she’s not.” Whether or not Leona Lewis is boring is beside the point. […]
If you’ll recall, sometimes I like to take a little break from the crushing reality of political news to just laugh at some of the stories out there. Just wait until you read today’s roundup of “Really?!” below the jump.
I was going to write a post about the basic principles of neoclassical economics and why they have little to no bearing on real life, basically part 879 of Why Republicans Suck Blog 2K11. Instead, because I feel like we might already be a little burned out on that sort of thing and it’s only […]
