ROUND UP

Friday, March 16th, 2012
This week! This week! This week! Extreme exercise becomes child abuse. [CBC] Grand Daddy of "hip" Gavin McInnes writes a book titled, How To Piss In Public--awesome, but nothing compared to Judge Judy's writing debut, Don't Pee On My Leg And Tell Me It's Raining. McInnes talks about everything from Vice to cool culture to Chris Brown. [Night Life] Remember when that old, sexist, bag of bones, Foster Friess, said that women should keep their legs closed as a form of birth control? Well, some of the chicks at XO Jane decided to see just how much sex they could have in the locked-knee position. [XO Jane] Lindsay Mound imagines Tom Ford via Twitter thoughts. [Glamour] Babe Rainbow, guys. Again with that guy. [Exclaim!] Community is back! Best tube news we've heard all year! Paper wrangles up the best moments. We love this show. [Paper Magazine] Our editor Mish Way on the bed bug epidemic for her VICE column, "Bed Bugs: How A Pantera Live Video Almost Ruined My Life." [VICE]

The Biebs gets cray cray with some quintessential teen stunts by throwing water balloons at the Baltimore police. [WBalTV] Fresh from jail, the Princess herself, Lindsay Lohan is said to do her first post-prison interview on NBC's Today Show. We hope this will be a bit more exciting then her "I'm a secret hoarder" piece. [TMZ] Gwyneth Platrow thinks her kid is special like Stella McCartney. Commenters rage. [The Cut] A new book from Sean Yseult of White Zombie reveals what it was like to be the queen of the metal scene. Flyers, posters, notes and photos, this is going to be an amazing read for any girl who ever wondered what it was like touring with the guys. [Soft Skull] How bad do you hate this run-away alarm clock? [Nando] p.s. It's New York Fashion Week, but you already knew that.

MISS D.C.’S DEFENSE

Friday, May 28th, 2010
Miss D.C. of 2009, Jennifer Corey, is using her title to fight against groping--an issue most would consider "non" but at closer inspection is something worth talking about. According to The Sexist, while out at a bar in Georgetown, Corey was slapped on the butt by a group of "spoiled rich preppy kids who think that they are better than you because their dad makes a lot of money." After the boys tried slap number three, Corey body slammed him. “I just had so much rage against him . . . that I slammed him up against the wall,” Corey said. “[T]here is no reason for a girl to have to worry about being slapped . . . or touched when we go out.” Yes. How many times have all of us been through this scenario? Eight million. Plus ten more. Now that this news has spread, Corey went on NBC to talk about her defense and general take on public assault. You can watch the entire news report here. “It doesn’t just happen at bars, either—it’s happened to me at the grocery store, it happens to me on my lunch break in Georgetown, and it’s just demeaning, and it’s disrespectful, and it scares you, which is the biggest thing,” Corey says. “People say, ‘Oh, you’re at a bar or you’re out in public, you should accept the fact that that’s going to happen.’ And that’s not OK.” We're happy that "The Crown" is finally being used to talk about something worth while instead of vapid, false promises of "world peace."
