[CULT TALK] Tomorrows Tulips: Liberated Angst for the Casual Rocker

(photos by Michael Cukr) Your headphones are in. They are blaring your cool older brother’s mixtape of slacker rock bands while you lay in your high school bedroom and stare at that Keith Haring print you hung up because he’s your crush’s favorite artist, and it’s the perfect day to...

[BEST SONG EVER] Charli XCX "Break The Rules"

[BEST SONG EVER] Charli XCX “Break The Rules”

  Before I dish on how much I love Charli XCX’s new track “Break The Rules,” let’s just agree to agree on how pathetic it is that I, a painfully (err gainfully) employed 28-year-old woman, feel a deep and meaningful connection to this rebellious anthem for back to school blues. Okay, now that we’ve established...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Mystery Lights "Flowers In My Hair, Demons In My Head"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Mystery Lights “Flowers In My Hair, Demons In My Head”

  I watched this Mystery Lights video a few times this past weekend and really enjoyed it (whilst concurrently storing some of the images for future nightmares) but last night I went to see Counting Crows (yes really) and it was glorious (yes really) and psychedelics (maybe) so now I’m not really in the correct...

[FOMO-GRAPHS] Burger-A-Go-Go Polaroids

“When it comes to music, the all-girl concept is great in theory, but can also easily go the way of Lilith Fair real fast if not executed properly. But in the case of this past weekend’s Burger-A-Go-Go, the female-centric festival put on by cult Southern California label Burger Records, awesomeness definitely prevailed.” You can read...
[CONFESSAY] My First Ever Tinder Date Took Me To Skid Row

[CONFESSAY] My First Ever Tinder Date Took Me To Skid Row

Listen, I’m pretty much the definition of low-maintenance.  My last boyfriend considered romance to be dining in at McDonalds.  I’ve been taken on a date to the 99 Cents Store, and even had a boy make a quick stop at a Coin Star so he could convert pennies to dollars to pay for our pizza...

[CONFESSAY] Cleanliness is Next to Cultiness

[CONFESSAY] Cleanliness is Next to Cultiness

In May, I left an A.A/twelve-step-based residential treatment center after a two-month stay. It was an intense, rewarding experience, but left me feeling pretty confused. I learned a lot about myself, but I also learned that A.A/N.A in its entirety is not for me. In the same sense that the fundamentals of Christianity are both...

[TO DO] iO Tillett Wright’s “We Are You” Portrait & Pool Party

It’s hot, your vag (Ed Note: or penis, or whatever you are packing, we love all of our readers – all 13) is sweating, and you probably want to party with a cocktail in one hand and an animal-shaped pool floatie in another. Good news: this Sunday, June 13, you can do all that and...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung "In Your Home" Plus Interview With Director Justin Gradin

[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung “In Your Home” Plus Interview With Director Justin Gradin

Is there anything better in this world than a two-person horse costume? I know you didn’t even open your mouth to answer because you know that this is in fact a completely rhetorical question, as there is absolutely not anything better. No, not even nachos. Not even nachos with real cheese AND nacho cheese. Not...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Cohen of The Fresh & Onlys

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Cohen of The Fresh & Onlys

It’s my belief that sad songs truly make the world go around, or at the very least they help shepherd some of us out of bed and through our days and maybe back into bed but still, with their melancholy melodies and wistful words, they shepherd us nonetheless. By this logic The Fresh & Onlys...

Do you think there will ever be a decade when Calvin Klein isn’t setting the gold standard for most sex drive inducing ad campaign ever? God, I hope not. With their latest promotional film for CK One, featuring an almost-naked Petra Collins, Dev Hynes, Soko, and just about every other free-lovin’ tumblr baby you’ve ever...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops "The Second Summer Of Love"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops “The Second Summer Of Love”

The new Pink Mountaintops video for “The Second Summer Of Love” is full of cool things like fire and skateboarding and destruction of property, interspliced with grainy shots of a shirtless Steve McBean showing us cue cards of various song lyrics, which I can only hope is some sort of artistic homage to a similar...

In case you missed it, Gisele goes basically bald for Balenciaga, and armpit hair is becoming a much-loathed trend. Read all about it in this week’s recap of things that happened in the world of women. 1. ‘ No Body Talk’ Summer Camps I recently wrote a piece calling out the potentially poisonous toxicity levels of...
