Pianist Matt Catingub has reason to be paying tribute to the Rat Pack – a gaggle of musicians that included Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin, and others. Turns out there’s a closer connection than just enjoying the sounds of a time past. “My mother was a jazz musician who was signed on by […]

Warm-your-bones lasagna After my boyfriend’s Italian mother visited us over Christmas, I decided to make lasagna. Go figure. Hopefully, if she were here to taste it she wouldn’t accuse me of disgracing her culture. I, for one, am pretty damn happy with this recipe. Packed full of vegetables and creamy ricotta, this is winter food […]

We recently read an article online that claimed that semen is healthy for you if swallowed. So, for this issue’s installment of Double Teamed, let’s talk swallowing semen! Dylan: I feel like a dude who just wants to get head from his girlfriend wrote this entire thing. Clorisa: Right. And I question what a man […]

In Search of Lost Time: On transitioning

At the beginning of the last semester I began hormone-replacement therapy under the strict supervision of an endocrinologist, a general practitioner, and a psychologist. I can never go back to being the person everyone expected me to be. I have been set free. Since then, my body has changed. My hip-to-waist ratio, muscle mass, fat […]

What’s Up With Her?: Under lock and key

A century ago, fathers owned their daughters. Women were transferrable commodities – owned by their fathers until being sold off to a husband who was willing to pay for her. In exchange, the husband would not only have a new wife, but a “chaste” one with a key to her “virginity.” Jessica Valenti puts it […]

Another year, another post-holiday shame-spiral induced by feasting and partying. Sure, you could hit the gym, but in the event that this resolution has failed in the past, consider some green pledges for 2012. What better way to trim the fat than by hopping on a bike? Local bike collective Recyclistas would be happy to […]

Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures (Island) 3.5/5 At 27, Amy Winehouse’s death was a tragic loss to the music industry. The British singer/songwriter was a self-abusive, dramatic mess whose stories flooded tabloids on a regular basis. But with the release of Lioness: Hidden Treasures, we’re reminded of the power of the voice behind the wreckage. […]

Carnage 4/5 One of the biggest challenges in adapting a play into a feature film is the setting. At a theatre production you expect either a single set, or possibly a few set changes. But when watching a film you expect more. So the challenge for Roman Polanski’s latest film, Carnage, is making a single […]
