Saturday Night Social: the Night Belongs to Tori Amos

Saturday evening! Valentine's Day is over so candy is 75% off, Ellen Page came out, and I spent the entirety of my shift in a guinea pig t-shirt listening to female singer-songwriters of the 90s, the best of whom may be Tori Amos, the patron saint of red hair dye and going "ah-ah-ah" after every phrase. Awesome! Let's… » 2/15/14 8:20pm 2/15/14 8:20pm

Saturday Night Social: The Night Belongs to Jessica Lange

Just a reminder that even though the holidays took her away from us, Jessica Lange will be back on our TV screens THIS WEEK! And because the holidays can't take away Netflix, I spent a good portion of them watching American Horror Story: Asylum while cross-stitching, which is the only appropriate activity to do while… » 1/04/14 7:30pm 1/04/14 7:30pm

Saturday Night Social: How Many Sex Toys Can $6K Get You?

According to a hilarious blind item on Radar yesterday, Jay Z and Beyoncé recently visited the New York sex shop Babeland so they could spend $6,000 on sex toys, which should make us all wonder: Did they buy a few really fancy sex toys, or did they buy a whole bunch of cheap sex toys to give away as ironic gifts? How… » 12/28/13 6:30pm 12/28/13 6:30pm

Saturday Night Social: Hillary Clinton Makes History

Tonight, we give it up for Hillary Rodham Clinton, badass texter and general awesome all-around ladyperson. On this day in 1999, Clinton basically made motherfucking history when she announced her intention to run for office in the United States Senate, a pretty much unprecedented move for the wife of a president. I… » 11/23/13 6:00pm 11/23/13 6:00pm

Saturday Night Social: Give It All To Lucia Popp

Tonight, we give it up for Lucia Popp, an Austrian-Czech opera singer who turned to music after studying medicine. Popp was a remarkable Viennese operetta singer, who was named an Austrian Kammersängerin. Sadly, she died on this day in 1993, but her beautiful voice still lives on. This one's in honor of my mother, who… » 11/16/13 6:30pm 11/16/13 6:30pm

Saturday Night Social: Watch Burt Reynolds Rise 'Out Of The Ashes'

Saturday Night Social, Sponsored by Margaret Sanger

On this day in 1879, Margaret Sanger was born. She went on to do a whole lot to help American women secure more agency over their own reproductive systems (like open the first birth control clinic in the U.S., fight to give women access to safe abortions, and help legalize contraception, NO BIG DEAL), but you… » 9/14/13 6:30pm 9/14/13 6:30pm

Saturday Night Social: Richard Grinds Our Gears/Geres

Today perma-rom-com-lawyer and longtime silver fox Richard Gere is 64, and we look back at an interview he did with Jimmy Carter in 1993. I'm way into the quasi-Rod Stewart mullet. If that's not enough Gerestalgia for you, here is a look back at the shittier and more recent past: Autumn In New York, starring Gere and… » 8/31/13 6:42pm 8/31/13 6:42pm

Saturday Night Social: Happy Birthday, Sexual Freak Rupert Grint

I searched high and low, long and hard, for a clip of Julie Walters getting it on with Rupert Grint in Driving Lessons, but no luck. You will have to settle for the hotttTTT'n'fresh tribute video, above. Let the newly-twenty-five year old ginger be your sexual freak, and I will watch from a nearby elm tree, silently… » 8/24/13 6:30pm 8/24/13 6:30pm
