'Dear Huey': The Best Tales of Celebrity Snail Mail

Last week I was looking through my friend/coworker Joy's Facebook photos and came across a signed photo she had from Joan Rivers.

Don't Have a Halloween Costume? We're Here to Help

I love Halloween, I am committed to being good at it and I would like to see the rest of America do as I do.

What Stupidly Specific Kitchen Gadget Can't You Live Without?

Flipped through the William Sonoma catalog lately? It's basically a glossy, overproduced database of hilariously specific kitchen gadgets. Pans just for frittatas, garlic presses out the wazoo, ice-cream makers, this fucking handheld strawberry slicer. Then again, one person's dust-covered mistake is another's prized… » 10/08/14 3:10pm 10/08/14 3:10pm

It’s no secret that few people actually go to a record store and buy CDs anymore, but someone is still buying music. Young people, old people, men, women … who is financially supporting the artists that we are forced to endure during all of these award shows? » 9/17/14 6:40pm 9/17/14 6:40pm
