  • Let’s face it: you’re addicted. You can’t live without it. When you’re not actually enjoying it, you’re longing to savor it again. You’d be ashamed to admit how many waking moments you’ve devoted to obsessing about it. I’m not talking about drugs, kinky sex or even double chocolate layer cake. I’m taking about Downton Abbey.

    The provocative podcasting duo “Throwing Shade” recently played the east coast for the first time, but even if you live here you probably missed it. Their Philly show sold out the day after tickets went on sale. When The Arts Bank added an extra show, that one sold out in an hour. Their New York [...]

    Terry reaches over and shuts off the water as his wife brushes her teeth. “You don’t need to run the water when the toothbrush is in your mouth,” he chides. “You’re wasting a valuable resource.” “Our marriage is a valuable resource too,” Deb responds. “And if you want to conserve it, you’ll get the hell [...]

    Jenny I totally agree with you about Snuffleuphagus. That was a truly dysfunctional relationship.

    By Roz Warren and Janet Golden Now that President Obama has endorsed gay marriage, it will soon become legal everywhere in America, including, of course, Sesame Street, which means Bert and Ernie can finally tie the knot! Their just signed pre-nup was leaked to us by a Muppet whose identity we’ve promised not to reveal, [...]

    *Editor’s note: NSFW I got an unexpected package in the mail the other day. Because I’m a book reviewer, I somehow ended up on the list of folks who get review copies from Cleis Press, a publisher of feminist erotica. Imagine my surprise when I opened my package at the counter of the local post office, [...]

    “Now that I’m 51,” cartoonist Isabella Bannerman tells me, “cartooning is easier than it’s ever been. I don’t care the way I did about what other people think. I‘ve stopped censoring myself. It gives me tremendous freedom.” Bannerman, who has contributed the Monday cartoon to King Feature’s popular “Six Chix” strip for over a decade, [...]

    Years ago, I was involved in a family tragedy so startling and heartbreaking that it made the front page of not only my local newspaper, but “People” and “The National Enquirer.” I’m not going to tell you anything about it. This means that you won’t be able to Google the worst day of my life [...]

    When I purchased my copy of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the first book in the Fifty Shades trilogy, the cashier asked if I wanted a receipt. “Absolutely,“ I told her. “I’m reading the book for review, so I’ll be reimbursed.“ “I want YOUR job,” she said. laughing “This book is hot!” It sure is, both [...]

    Carole King and Gerry Goffin, her husband and writing partner, didn’t single-handedly compose the sound track to my adolescence, but it’s hard to imagine coming-of-age without “Up On The Roof,” “Natural Woman,” and “The Lo-co Motion.” King, born Carol Klein, in Manhattan in 1942, was barely out of adolescence herself when she and Goffin wrote [...]

    You know that standardized test they give you in middle school that’s supposed to predict the job you’ll be best at? That test told me that I’d make a good lawyer. And I became a good lawyer. But I was also a stressed-out, unhappy lawyer. I eventually left the practice of law to write. (Was [...]

    “Cartooning is the best revenge,” jokes Stephanie Piro when I ask where her ideas come from. A marital spat with husband John or a stranger’s insensitive remark will quickly find its way into Piro’s “Fair Game” strip, or King Feature’s popular “Six Chix” feature, where Piro is the “Saturday Chick.” They may start with a [...]
