Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we flip through the tabloids while thinking about other things, like what to get for lunch, which—seeing as how I have no leftovers in the office fridge nor the appetite for something healthy like a salad—will likely be in the form of a burrito bowl from the fast-casual chain of all…
British singer-songwriter/producer Shura has steadily pumped out an array of near-perfect pop tracks over the past few years, but her latest single, “What’s It Gonna Be,” twists the tapered, yearning nostalgia of songs like “Touch” and “2Shy” into a condensed, sophisticated three minute vocalization of the best ‘80s…
Akash Vukoti, age six, is the youngest speller in this year’s Scripps National Spelling Bee, and for that I just wanna say, “C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S,” and then swaddle him in a blanket and sing him to sleep.

A new documentary about “pup play,” the (often though not always sexual) act of dressing and inhabiting the role of a dog while another person takes on the role of handler or trainer, is about to be unleashed on Great Britain’s Channel 4, bringing new focus to a subculture that—according to some members—is ready to go…
What would you think if a coworker or employee showed up to work in loose ripped jeans, scuzzy sneakers, the same shirt she wore yesterday, frizzy hair, dirty unpolished nails, and a band-aid hanging off her arm from a recent tetanus shot? Would you judge me? Should I buy new clothes? Probably?
In the New York Times, many notable Asian-American actors—Constance Wu, BD Wong, Aziz Ansari, Daniel Dae Kim and more—discussed the obstacles they’ve had in securing parts, pegged to the larger conversation around overall diversity in Hollywood, as well the recent spate of films in which characters written as Asian…
