Google releases “It Gets Better” ad during Glee ft. Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert

Posted May 4, 2011 by Erika

During last night’s Glee, Google Chrome released their much anticipated “It Gets Better” ad featuring the “It Gets Better” project. It got me thinking.

I Bought It: Beyoncé, Feminism, and All That Sheiße

Posted July 6, 2011 by Kyle

Recently, I have been checking out the wonderful world of feminist theory.

Also, both were freaking awesome, and both wowed the judges. The premise of the show is that the […]

Posted May 30, 2011 by Rosel

Bridesmaids, written by and starring Kristen Wiig, has gotten quite a lot of buzz because: a) it’s a comedy written by a woman, when we all know that women aren’t as funny as men. b) it’s a comedy with a predominantly female cast, when…well, you get the idea.

Posted November 7, 2012 by Mel

Melissa Etheridge loves Canada, and Canada loves her. From our balcony seats at Place des Arts’ Theatre Maisonneuve, providing an unobstructed view of the stage, we sat and waited as the anticipation in the hall steadily grew… until from somewhere off-stage, that familiar husky voice instructed someone to kill the lights and get the show […]
