Mary Tyler Moore Passes On And Passes The Baton
Huffington Post - 30 days
I used to watch "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" on Nick at Night whenever I would visit my grandmother on summer vacation. I still have the lyrics to the title credits memorized. They evolved over time. Early on it went, "You might just make it after all." As the show went on, more women continued entering the workplace and Mary Richards's career in journalism in the 1970s began to flourish, they were changed to the more optimistic, "You're gonna make it after all." I remember telling my mother that for the series finale they should have definitively proclaimed, "Congrats, you made it after all!" instead of leaving us hanging. I also told my mother that I liked her better as Mary Richards on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" than as Laura Petrie on "The Dick Van Dyck Show" citing that Laura Petrie "cried too much." Meanwhile, Mary Richards would go to bat. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts doing a punk cover of her theme song is totally justified. Those summers, as well as watching "Murphy Brown" wit ...

Jesus: O primeiro transgênero
Huffington Post - 5 months
A polêmica nos círculos cristãos conservadores a respeito do acesso a banheiros é meio desconcertante. Eles falam que Deus não comete erros, como se Deus só operasse em binários, e tudo o que não é preto nem branco não pode ser coisa d'Ele. Mas não temos um Deus preto e branco; a criação é tão cheia de cores e variações que é incompreensível que nós cristãos tentemos reduzi-lo à nossa paleta limitada de expectativas individuais. Os principais pecadores são os cristãos que afirmam interpretar a Bíblia literalmente. É claro que eles não o fazem; eles impões seus próprios filtros sobre as histórias e frases das escrituras para que elas se encaixem em suas ideologias particulares. Se eles realmente o fizessem, logo veriam que Jesus deve ter sido, segundo suas próprias regras exegéticas, o primeiro homem transgênero. Vamos olhar o que nos dizem a Bíblia e o cristianismo. O ensinamento da igreja de tempos remotos até hoje é que Jesus recebeu seu corpo de Maria. A igreja t ...

Kristen Stewart Ditches Her Brunette Locks For A Bleached 'Do
Huffington Post - 11 months
Gone are the days of Kristen Stewart as a brunette.  The actress has ditched her dark locks in favor of newly bleached tresses, which she debuted over the weekend at Los Angeles International Airport. KStew, who had her hair partially covered with a black beanie, was spotted with her rumored girlfriend, Soko. There's no word yet on whether the new hair is for a role, but seeing as she's an actress, it's very possible.  The "American Ultra" star's new look is the latest in a long list of hair transformations. While promoting "Into The Wild" back in 2007, she sported a golden mane, then she went back to brunette for "Twilight." And who could forget the jet black mullet for her role as Joan Jett in "The Runaways"? Stewart also had a stint as a redhead and chopped her long hair into an edgy short style in 2014.  Speaking of that chop, Stewart told Marie Claire in 2014, "My hair was such a crutch. I looked quote, unquote 'sexy' no matter what. I could hide behind it. ...

10 Female Pop Culture Icons We Want Our Kids to Look Up To
Huffington Post - 12 months
By Sierra Filucci, Common Sense Media "Sugar, spice, and everything nice" sounds hopelessly out of touch in today's world, right? Well, then what's with all the sexy, pouty, getting-by-on-looks-alone female celebs (looking at you, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Kendall Jenner). Women who kick butt, rock out, and break barriers are the ones we want our kids to know about. These are women who defy stereotypes and embody character traits we would like to see in our own kids: perseverance, courage, empathy, and creativity. And even though it's 2016, women have a long way to go to be equally reflected in everything from speaking parts in movies to board rooms in Silicon Valley. As actress and SeeJane.org spokesperson Geena Davis says, she can't be it if she can't see it. So choose a few of these media and pop culture icons to introduce to your kids (and especially your daughters).

Beautiful Hair at Critics' Choice Points to Exciting Year
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The Critics' Choice Awards brought more signals that hair trends are on the move. Host T. J. Miller walked the 'blue' carpet in Santa Monica with wife, Kate Gorney, who beautifully exemplified a new trend this year toward warm, coppery reds. Bryce Dallas Howard also did a really warm red with hints of copper. "Fargo" star Kristen Dunst did a gorgeous sleek bob in blonde with dark base and accents. Bobs are trending strong and Dunst was joined by Helen Mirren in a blonde tone-on-tone, and Mary J. Blige, who wore her blonde bob with bangs for a retro-60s twist. The possibilities for bobs are endless, part of why they're trending so strong. Updos are on the move, too. Constance Zimmer posed on the blue carpet at Barker Hangar in a dark, dark brown color with bangs and face-framing wisps. This is a lovely, playful, romantic look that worked so well with her rich red lipstick. Joan Jett stayed true to her roots with an '80s rocker pixie in black.

10 David Bowie Videos to Show How He Rocked the World!
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Mural of David Bowie in Brixton, London, where he was born. Photo by: Louise McLaren Soon after David Bowie's departure from earth, the internet flooded with tributes. But it also left many millennials who had never seen his work wondering, 'who is David Bowie?' It left Twitter abuzz with speculations. It's cool though, because now a whole new generation gets to discover the work of this legendary rocker. David Bowie was famous for his theatrical concerts, costumes, and genre bending styles which had him surfing through five and a half decades of music, film, art, and theatre. Bowie was exceptional specifically because he challenged the status quo and even his own fame to constantly re-invent himself, re-invigorate his music, and create new trends. Along the way he was a key influencer through artist Andy Warhol's reign in the 60s, the emergence of glam rock and punk rock in NYC, through the early days of MTV, 90s post punk and grunge, all the way through the electronic mu ...

Val Kinzler & Joe Vasta: Keeping the Rock 'n' Roll Faith in New York City
Huffington Post - about 1 year
"There is a spiritual theme to this record. We were all working really hard, getting ourselves out there, playing the clubs, developing our chemistry. But one day I was sitting at my dining room table just teary eyed - I was about to give up, I was losing my faith. The day before I had found two bibles in the trash - and I brought them upstairs thinking somebody's gonna need a bible, right? It's not like I'm a holy roller, but I am spiritual. Then I thought, 'damn it I'm gonna throw these bibles back in the garbage!' Suddenly the phone rang and it was Tate Records asking if I'd got the contract they'd sent. Contract! What contract? For some reason their email with the contract had gone to my spam folder ---and I took that as a sign, that you gotta have faith!"

    More Details Hide Details In the US, after the album was rejected by 23 major labels, Jett and Laguna released it independently on their new Blackheart Records label, which they started with Laguna's daughter's college savings. Laguna remembers, "We couldn't think of anything else to do, but print up records ourselves." With Laguna's assistance, Jett formed the Blackhearts. Laguna recounted, "I told Joanie to forget the band and support herself on the advance money. There was enough for her but not for a band. She said she had to have a band. And I believe to this day that it was the Blackhearts, that concept, that made Joan Jett." She placed an ad in the LA Weekly stating that she was "looking for three good men". John Doe of X sat in on bass for the auditions held at S.I.R. studios in Los Angeles. He mentioned a local bass player, Gary Ryan, who had recently been crashing on his couch.

    Age 20
    In 1979, Jett was in England pursuing a solo career.
    More Details Hide Details She recorded three songs there with Sex Pistols' Paul Cook and Steve Jones, one of which was an early version of Arrows' "I Love Rock 'n' Roll". This version appears on the 1993 compilation album Flashback. Later that year, she returned to Los Angeles, where she began fulfilling an obligation of the Runaways to complete a film which was loosely based on the band's career entitled We're All Crazee Now! Three actresses stood in for the departed band members, including Rainbeaux Smith, who was also a rock drummer. While working on the project, Jett met songwriter and producer Kenny Laguna, who was hired by Toby Mamis to help Jett with writing some tracks for the film. They became friends and decided to work together. Jett relocated to Long Beach, New York where Laguna was based. The plug was pulled on the project halfway through shooting after Jett fell ill, but in 1984, after she became famous, producers looked for a way to use the footage from the incomplete film. Parts of the original footage of Jett were eventually used in another project, an underground film called DuBeat-Eo, which was produced by Alan Sacks but not commercially released.
