Hope for the Future - For Some It's Easy, For Some It Takes Effort

They say, "Hope springs eternal." For some it does. For some hope seems a way of life, a way of being, a part of who they are. For others, finding hope for the future takes effort or even real work. ...more

Fun with Beyonce "Single Ladies" Video Parodies

She's with the Obamas.  She's hangin' with Justin Timberlake on "Saturday Night Live."  She sang at the big inauguration concert yesterday.  And tomorrow night she'll sing "At Last" for the Obama's first presidential dance.  She's Beyonce and if you haven't heard, she's got a little single out called, "Single Ladies."  The video of that catchy dance tune with Beyonce shaking her thang has for some reason sparked one of the biggest online parody frenzies, evah! ...more

Tuesday Tuneage: Angry British Girls

Why are British girls so much better at communicating their rage than us Americans? No, seriously. Where can we get some of that snark? We have spent much time praising the likes of singer-songwriters Kate Nash, Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen, and, who knows whether it's something in the water (or tea? har har), these girls all hail from the UK.

Joan Rivers’ Guide to Beauty Under the Knife

Joan Rivers, plastic surgery maven, is sharing her experience in her new book:  Men are Stupid….And They Like Big Boobs: A Woman’s Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery.  Apparently this is a very well researched and useful book; between quips Joan offers sound advice on finding a good plastic surgeon and what to expect in terms of the entire experience.  But in writing this book I suppose we’re meant to see Joan as an aspirational figure.  The message is that with thousands of dollars you too can beat back age and turn your face into a frozen death mask.  Sounds inviting – j ...more
