Still Showing Her Sexy Sadie Side, Dana Fuchs Sets the Stage to Rise and Shine
Huffington Post - 27 days
Whatever happened to Sexy Sadie? Embodied by Dana Fuchs, she's alive and well and ready to knock your socks off -- if you let her. "I would love people to know that I'm first and foremost a songwriter, a singer, and it's very much like that Sadie character," Fuchs said from her Harlem apartment near the end of an hourlong phone conversation in late January while expecting some terrible weather to hit New York City. "But of course, it's my own music," she added, a bad cold making her deep voice sound even lower and sexier. "It's that kind of raw, rocking, soulful music, and I would love people to know that Sadie is Dana Fuchs, who is living as a musician." It's been 10 years since Fuchs (pronounced Fyooks) made her motion picture mark as Sadie, a powerful blues singer, very hip chick and Earth Mother in Across the Universe. Julie Taymor's wonderfully innovative and inexcusably ignored movie set in the 1960s was filled with teen romance, wild imagery and incredibly inventi ...

An Open Letter To The Beaming Bride I Was On My Wedding Day, After Divorce
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Today, Amy Johnson is a happily divorced mom of two young boys. A little over a decade ago, she was a 25-year-old bride, confidently walking down the aisle to marry a man she loved without any doubts or reservations. Below, Johnson writes a letter to the hopeful bride she was on her wedding day, reflecting on the marriage that followed and the love she continues to feel for her ex-husband. Oh, Aim, look at that smile! On this day, you don’t, for one second, think this isn’t the best decision you could make for yourself. He loves you and you love him and you vow to be together forever. I know you hate surprises, so I’m here to reassure you that thirteen years after this day, all of that remains true. Sort of, anyway. You’re now divorced -- it happens about nine years into the marriage -- but during those nine years, two plucky little boys are born so you and your husband are, most definitely, joined together forever.  On your wedding day, divorce wasn’t something you thought ...

Columbia to Change Name, Mascot
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Bowing to demands from faculty and students, Dr. Richard Simpson, Dean of Columbia College, announced that Columbia's sports teams would no longer be nicknamed the Lions. Feminists had denounced the use of Lions as a nickname and mascot. "Lions are serial rapists and baby killers," charged Meghan Jensen, president of The Columbia League of Humorless Feminists. "When a lion takes over a pride he enslaves all the lionesses and then kills all their offspring. Is this what Columbia stands for?" Alejandro Rubido, a professor of Cultural Awareness, declared that lions were guilty of the worst sort of racial stereotyping. "Lions do not see minorities for what they are. When a lion sees anyone Hispanic, he does see an individual. He sees only lunch. To lions, Hispanics are simply big burritos. The cultural insensitivity of lions is intolerable." "Are we violent predators?" asked Dr. Jayne Connelly, Associate Dean for Diversity and Dr. Enyinnaya Okechukwu, Assistant Dean for Cultural E ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
It's morphin' time! Twenty years ago today, on August 28, 1993, "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" premiered. The kids show featured five teens (later six when the Green/White Ranger was added) being called upon to protect the world from Rita Repulsa.

Judy Blume's Tiger Eyes Trailer: Watch it Now!
US Magazine - almost 4 years
A movie in Blume! Long before Twilight's Stephenie Meyer saturated the young adult market with tales of vampires and werewolves, Judy Blume was the literary queen of teen angst, deftly exploring the trials and tribulations of the tween and teen set over the course of 20-odd novels, including Are You There God? It's Me Margaret and Forever. And now, for the first time, one of her books is finally coming to the big screen. PHOTOS: '80s hunks -- then and now The film adaptation of her 1981 novel, Tiger Eyes, about a teenage girl who moves with her family from New Jersey to New Mexico after their father dies, hits theaters this June, and from the looks of the trailer, it's going to be quite the tearjerker — and a possible sleeper hit.

Whatever Happened To Macy Gray?

You know those stars who blow up for all of about five minutes -- or five years, if they're lucky -- and then disappear into the ether? The ones whom you're reminded of only upon seeing a late-night commercial for "Totally R&B" or gasping with excitement as they pop up on the latest episode of "30 Rock"? The Huffington Post has been scouring the Web for juice on some of your old favorites, from pop-music princess Mandy Moore to "Cruel Intentions" heartthrob Ryan Phillippe. Find out what these and plenty of other stars are actually up to. Believe it or not, most of them are indeed working. (We didn't believe it either.)

Farm in Idaho hosts 'weed dating' for singles
Fox News - over 4 years
For one night a year, a neighborhood farm in northwest Boise turns into a respite for singles who are tired of the same old dating scene. A poster board planted at the entrance of Earthly Delights Farm in late June advertised "Weed Dating," with a heart-stamped arrow guiding visitors to a sign-in table, where they were each assigned a number and invited to sample beer provided by a local brewer. The farm is among a handful across the country offering an unconventional form of speed dating. Typically, speed daters meet at a bar or restaurant and switch conversational partners every few minutes, in hopes of finding someone compatible. With weed dating, this rapid-fire courtship takes place on the farm, with singles working together in the fields. The payoff for their toil? A chance at romance. Joe Peraino, 27, met his previous girlfriend while weed dating at the Boise farm last year. They were together for nine months and found that few others couples could top their account ...
