Nike, Gucci and Moschino Drop Collections for the Year of the Rat

The Year of the Rat is nearly here and designers are getting in on the Lunar New Year celebrations.
The likes of Nike, Gucci, Etro and Rag & Bone are just some of the fashion brands honoring the Chinese New Year, which takes place on Jan. 25 with special collections inspired by some more-than-familiar rodent characters. Gucci, for one, is paying homage to Mickey Mouse with a collection of apparel and accessories that feature images of the iconic cartoon character intermixed with the brand’s motifs and logos.
Rag & Bone, for another, is looking back to the 2015 “Pizza Rat,” giving a nod to the viral video of a rat carrying a slice of pizza throughout the New York City subway.
The Year of the Rat is the first year in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Those born in the Year of the Rat are said to be successful in their careers, honest and easygoing. Read on to see Year of the Rat collections hitting the market.

Designers Return to Showing, Selling Twice Year — and It Makes Sense

LONDON — The endless fashion week cycle and the physical waste it generates — between samples produced, runway show costs, plane tickets purchased, and time spent to-ing and fro-ing to showrooms — is old news. Everyone realizes it has to stop, but few are brave enough to make big changes in an inherently wasteful industry.

The Year 3000: A Dream

The Year 3000: A Dream


First published in 1897, The Year 3000 is the most daring and original work of fiction by the prominent Italian anthropologist Paolo Mantegazza. A futuristic utopian novel, the book follows two young lovers who, as they travel from Rome to the capital of the United Planetary States to celebrate their “mating union,” encounter the marvels of cultural and scientific advances along the way. Intriguing in itself, The Year 3000 is also remarkable for both its vision of the future (predicting an astonishing array of phenomena from airplanes, artificial intelligence, CAT scans, and credit cards to controversies surrounding divorce, abortion, and euthanasia) and the window it opens on fin de siècle Europe. Published here for the first time in English, this richly annotated edition features an invaluable introductory essay that interprets the intertextual and intercultural connections within and beyond Mantegazza’s work. For its critical contribution to early science fiction and for its insights into the hopes, fears, and clash of values in the Western world of both Mantegazza’s time and our own, this book belongs among the visionary giants of speculative literature.

The Simple Beauty Resolutions Allure Editors Are Making This Year

Does anyone actually want to start their new year with daunting tasks, like learning a new language or forgoing gluten? Instead of overwhelming overhauls, our editors are planning simple beauty tweaks and little lifestyle improvements that are a snap to maintain—and are a hell of a lot more actionable than those grandiose-yet-vague mantras that also tend to crop up this time of year (looking at you, “live life to the fullest”). And besides, maybe we don’t want to stop replacing entire meals with cookies, OK?

The Year of the Runaways By Sunjeev Sahota (Hardback)

The Year of the Runaways By Sunjeev Sahota (Hardback)


Overview ‘A brilliant and beautiful novel’ Kamila Shamsie, Guardian The Year of the Runaways tells of the bold dreams and daily struggles of an unlikely family thrown together by circumstance. Thirteen young men live in a house in Sheffield, each in flight from India and in desperate search of a new life. Tarlochan, a former rickshaw driver, will say nothing about his past in Bihar; and Avtar has a secret that binds him to protect the choatic Randeep. Randeep, in turn, has a visa-wife in a flat on the other side of town: a clever, devout woman whose cupboards are full of her husband’s clothes, in case the immigration men surprise her with a call. Sweeping between India and England, and between childhood and the present day, Sunjeev Sahota’s generous, unforgettable novel is – as with Rohinton Mistry’s A Fine Balance – a story of dignity in the face of adversity and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.

A Year To Remember – The 1950s

A Year To Remember – The 1950s


Using rare news footage and interviews from the incredible British Pathé archive, this extraordinary series provides a unique year by year look at what made the news of yesteryear. With a comprehensive hour long programme on each year of the 1950s, this 3 disc – set package provides the definitive insight into the decade that took us from post-war austerity to consumer boom. The morale-boosting Festival of Britain in 1951 was held to encourage commerce in challenging times – rationing was still in effect and the post-war baby boom come to fruition in the birth of ‘teenage’ culture. This sizeable younger population was making its new found spending power felt with the rise of ‘Rock n Roll’ and the emergence of coffee shops on street corners. Although the decade began with a Labour government with Clement Attlee as Prime Minister, the Conservatives would dominate the decade with Winston Churchill, Anthony Eden and Howard Macmillan all taking residence at 10 Downing Street. It was a challenging time for the politicians as they dealt with the Suez Canal Crisis, the Soviet invasion of further H-Bomb testing and, closer to home, the horrific Harrow and Wealdstone train disaster. The whole country was also united in grief with the passing of King George VI, and then with pride as the masses witnessed the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. It was also a period marked by scientific and technological progress; the first Sputnik Satellite, the last ride on the London Tram, the Polio vaccination and, much to the dislike of motorists everywhere, the introduction of the parking meter. This collection also features some of the more light hearted events of the decade such as Bing Crosby playing golf in Scotland, Bolton Wanderers beating Manchester United to lift the FA Cup and the 100th Varsity Boat Race. Relive all these events and many, many more with “A Year To Remember: The 1950s”

Lily Tomlin May Be A ‘Grandma,’ But This Is Her Year

It’s been 39 years since Lily Tomlin’s first Oscar nomination and 44 years since her first Emmy nod. But if headlining a film is what makes someone a movie star, then Tomlin is only now earning her due. And if top billing on a series makes someone a television star, then Tomlin didn’t accomplish that either, until just a few months ago. Now she has a lot to show for it: Her film, “Grandma,” which opened this weekend, has attracted glowing reviews and Oscar buzz since it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and the first season of her Netflix series, “Grace and Frankie,” led to Tomlin’s umpteenth Emmy salute

“I’ve never thought of myself as a movie star,” Tomlin said when I sat down with her at a Manhattan hotel during the Tribeca Film Festival, where “Grandma” screened in April. “I’m considered a little eccentric in a way.”  

It’s not hard to pinpoint the origins of Tomlin’s self-assessment: Her breakout stint on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” in the early 1970s included such characters as fast-talking, nasally 5-year-old Edith Ann and the condescending telephone operator Ernestine. She smoked pot with Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton in the 1980 feminist comedy “9 to 5” and became a fixture of Robert Altman’s sprawling ensemble films about the idiosyncrasies of the American experience (“Nashville,” “Short Cuts,” “A Prairie Home Companion”). “Grandma” fits in nicely with that catalog. Tomlin portrays a crusty, weed-smoking lesbian poet who assists her teenage granddaughter in cobbling together $ 600 for an abortion. And in “Grace and Frankie,” she plays a breezy, weed-smoking painter whose longtime husband leaves her for another man.

These eccentricities don’t always extend to Tomlin’s real life, however, as much as her reputation may assume otherwise. She and Fonda, who portray “Grace and Frankie’s” title characters, did take peyote to prepare for a pilot’s hallucinogenic scene, but Tomlin has repeated time and again throughout the “Grandma” press cycle that she rarely smokes pot and certainly doesn’t consume heavier drugs with any regularity. (“I’m too wacky and nutty and foggy anyway,” she told The Daily Beast. “I don’t need to get too blissed out.”)

What does factor into Tomlin’s real life is the excellence of her “Grandma” performance, which the actress said is the closest she’s come to playing herself onscreen. 

“I don’t know why I didn’t think of this a long time ago,” she said of portraying a semi-analogue. “I identified with many things in the script: the fact that she was a lesbian. I’m not a poet, but I kind of wish I was.”

I told Tomlin that comedy could be considered a form of poetry. She beamed.

“Well, that’s true,” she responded. “Thank you! Bless you. You sound like Diane Keaton. She said, ‘Comedy deserves something good,’ and then she got an Oscar for ‘Annie Hall.'” 

Part of the reason “Grandma” hit home may be that Paul Weitz, who directed her in the 2013 Tina Fey-Paul Rudd comedy “Admission,” wrote the script with Tomlin in mind. (The same goes for “Grace and Frankie,” which “Friends” scribe Marta Kauffman co-created for Fonda and Tomlin.) She’s shared the screen with the likes of Bette Midler (“Big Business”) and Steve Martin (“All of Me”), but this is the first movie in which Tomlin is the one true lead. At 75, that sounds like a feat, especially when she reveals that “not very many” scripts drift her way anymore. 

“It’s an age thing for me right now,” she said when I asked why more casting directors aren’t ringing her up. “What’s going to come across your desk is not going to be a lead role, and you’re not going to be a romantic interest in a conventional movie. I didn’t get a romantic lead when I was 30, though. I was thought of as a comedian.”

She doesn’t see herself as the lead of “Grandma” either, though. Tomlin was “over the moon” when she learned that Julia Garner had been cast as her granddaughter, Marcia Gay Harden as her stuffy daughter, Judy Greer as a doting ex-girlfriend and Laverne Cox as a tattoo-artist pal. Oh, and she got to clobber “Paper Towns” star Nat Wolff with a hockey stick in one scene, too. 

But “Grandma” is Tomlin’s movie. Perhaps she’s taking a modesty cue from her own mother. I asked whether the film’s family dynamics resonate, and Tomlin launched into an account about sometimes needing to act as a parental figure while growing up. Like that time she called a door-to-door salesman who’d duped her mother, too intimidated to tell him no, into purchasing 10 vacuum cleaners at about $ 300 a pop. She ordered him to come to their home and refund her mother’s money. 

“I was all piss and vinegar,” she recalled. “I was just cursing him and telling him that if he didn’t come I would throw it in the street. He finally came out and said, ‘Your mother bought that vacuum cleaner’ and all this stuff. And I pitched it out off the stairs. I was forever doing stuff like that. I just railed against it. In the early years, my mother would have been more concerned about what the neighbors — or the relatives in the South — would think. I was a Detroit kid, a street kid, so I was kind of tough. I would stand up for myself.”

That resolve worked in Tomlin’s favor over the years, including the many times she’s said she has no regrets about turning down an offer to reveal her sexuality on the cover of Time magazine in 1975. The same forces that prevented her from accepting the deal — potential career suicide at the time — would have stymied a pro-choice, pro-weed, pro-sexuality, pro-aging movie like “Grandma” from being made even a decade ago. 

“I just feel like so much progress has been made on those fronts, although a lot has been a pull-back, too, in certain regions,” she said. “And I know that because my family is Southern. My generation has come around tremendously. My mom’s generation, they’d just be negative, negative, negative: ‘Did you hear about that Mary Jean?’ That’s my real name. My mother would be 100 years old by now, and even though my mother came to terms with my brother and me both being gay, my relatives would have been gossiping about us for days. But my younger relatives are much more lenient, much more tolerant, much more accepting. Their minds are just open to things. And yet I can’t even talk about this in a way because so much other stuff is so horrible in the world — the inequities and the prejudice and the hate and the killing.” 

She’s right, of course, but “Grandma” is a phenomenal signpost of the incremental progress this country has seen in recent years. It’s also one of the year’s best indies to date — a yarn about old connections resurfacing and disparate generations merging their value systems. In an ideal world, Tomlin would add an Oscar nomination to her list of 2015 successes. 

After our 20-minute chat, the publicist said it was time to part. I instantly protested, not wanting to end a great conversation. Tomlin stood and threw her arms around me for a hug. She would never admit it, but somewhere, she must know, 44 years after her first Emmy nomination, that this is her moment. 

”Grandma” is now in limited release.

“I’ve never thought of myself as a movie star,” Tomlin said when I sat down with her at a Manhattan hotel during the Tribeca Film Festival, where “Grandma” screened in April. “I’m considered a little eccentric in a way.”  

It’s not hard to pinpoint the origins of Tomlin’s self-assessment: Her breakout stint on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” in the early 1970s included such characters as fast-talking, nasally 5-year-old Edith Ann and the condescending telephone operator Ernestine. She smoked pot with Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton in the 1980 feminist comedy “9 to 5” and became a fixture of Robert Altman’s sprawling ensemble films about the idiosyncrasies of the American experience (“Nashville,” “Short Cuts,” “A Prairie Home Companion”). “Grandma” fits in nicely with that catalog. Tomlin portrays a crusty, weed-smoking lesbian poet who assists her teenage granddaughter in cobbling together $ 600 for an abortion. And in “Grace and Frankie,” she plays a breezy, weed-smoking painter whose longtime husband leaves her for another man.

These eccentricities don’t always extend to Tomlin’s real life, however, as much as her reputation may assume otherwise. She and Fonda, who portray “Grace and Frankie’s” title characters, did take peyote to prepare for a pilot’s hallucinogenic scene, but Tomlin has repeated time and again throughout the “Grandma” press cycle that she rarely smokes pot and certainly doesn’t consume heavier drugs with any regularity. (“I’m too wacky and nutty and foggy anyway,” she told The Daily Beast. “I don’t need to get too blissed out.”)

What does factor into Tomlin’s real life is the excellence of her “Grandma” performance, which the actress said is the closest she’s come to playing herself onscreen. 

“I don’t know why I didn’t think of this a long time ago,” she said of portraying a semi-analogue. “I identified with many things in the script: the fact that she was a lesbian. I’m not a poet, but I kind of wish I was.”

I told Tomlin that comedy could be considered a form of poetry. She beamed.

“Well, that’s true,” she responded. “Thank you! Bless you. You sound like Diane Keaton. She said, ‘Comedy deserves something good,’ and then she got an Oscar for ‘Annie Hall.'” 

Part of the reason “Grandma” hit home may be that Paul Weitz, who directed her in the 2013 Tina Fey-Paul Rudd comedy “Admission,” wrote the script with Tomlin in mind. (The same goes for “Grace and Frankie,” which “Friends” scribe Marta Kauffman co-created for Fonda and Tomlin.) She’s shared the screen with the likes of Bette Midler (“Big Business”) and Steve Martin (“All of Me”), but this is the first movie in which Tomlin is the one true lead. At 75, that sounds like a feat, especially when she reveals that “not very many” scripts drift her way anymore. 

“It’s an age thing for me right now,” she said when I asked why more casting directors aren’t ringing her up. “What’s going to come across your desk is not going to be a lead role, and you’re not going to be a romantic interest in a conventional movie. I didn’t get a romantic lead when I was 30, though. I was thought of as a comedian.”

She doesn’t see herself as the lead of “Grandma” either, though. Tomlin was “over the moon” when she learned that Julia Garner had been cast as her granddaughter, Marcia Gay Harden as her stuffy daughter, Judy Greer as a doting ex-girlfriend and Laverne Cox as a tattoo-artist pal. Oh, and she got to clobber “Paper Towns” star Nat Wolff with a hockey stick in one scene, too. 

But “Grandma” is Tomlin’s movie. Perhaps she’s taking a modesty cue from her own mother. I asked whether the film’s family dynamics resonate, and Tomlin launched into an account about sometimes needing to act as a parental figure while growing up. Like that time she called a door-to-door salesman who’d duped her mother, too intimidated to tell him no, into purchasing 10 vacuum cleaners at about $ 300 a pop. She ordered him to come to their home and refund her mother’s money. 

“I was all piss and vinegar,” she recalled. “I was just cursing him and telling him that if he didn’t come I would throw it in the street. He finally came out and said, ‘Your mother bought that vacuum cleaner’ and all this stuff. And I pitched it out off the stairs. I was forever doing stuff like that. I just railed against it. In the early years, my mother would have been more concerned about what the neighbors — or the relatives in the South — would think. I was a Detroit kid, a street kid, so I was kind of tough. I would stand up for myself.”

That resolve worked in Tomlin’s favor over the years, including the many times she’s said she has no regrets about turning down an offer to reveal her sexuality on the cover of Time magazine in 1975. The same forces that prevented her from accepting the deal — potential career suicide at the time — would have stymied a pro-choice, pro-weed, pro-sexuality, pro-aging movie like “Grandma” from being made even a decade ago. 

“I just feel like so much progress has been made on those fronts, although a lot has been a pull-back, too, in certain regions,” she said. “And I know that because my family is Southern. My generation has come around tremendously. My mom’s generation, they’d just be negative, negative, negative: ‘Did you hear about that Mary Jean?’ That’s my real name. My mother would be 100 years old by now, and even though my mother came to terms with my brother and me both being gay, my relatives would have been gossiping about us for days. But my younger relatives are much more lenient, much more tolerant, much more accepting. Their minds are just open to things. And yet I can’t even talk about this in a way because so much other stuff is so horrible in the world — the inequities and the prejudice and the hate and the killing.” 

She’s right, of course, but “Grandma” is a phenomenal signpost of the incremental progress this country has seen in recent years. It’s also one of the year’s best indies to date — a yarn about old connections resurfacing and disparate generations merging their value systems. In an ideal world, Tomlin would add an Oscar nomination to her list of 2015 successes. 

After our 20-minute chat, the publicist said it was time to part. I instantly protested, not wanting to end a great conversation. Tomlin stood and threw her arms around me for a hug. She would never admit it, but somewhere, she must know, 44 years after her first Emmy nomination, that this is her moment. 

”Grandma” is now in limited release.

What Your First Year of Marriage Teaches You

While one year of marriage hardly seems like an accomplishment (my grandparents made it to 50, after all!), I do believe that my first 365 days of matrimony have been significant — at least in terms of what I’ve learned along the way.

I can’t speak for other couples, but I can share my own experiences and what this first year has taught me about my relationship, myself and marriage in general.

First, I’ve learned that being married is far less stressful than wedding planning — at least for me. While I absolutely loved planning our wedding (so much so that I even became a wedding planner!), the process of making decisions for this huge event was a little… much at times. I felt so much pressure to make sure every choice was special, personal, and, well, right. Looking back, I’ve realized that I didn’t need to work myself up over things so much and that while I loved all the DIY projects and special touches I worked so hard on, they aren’t what made the day as memorable as it was.

Being married, while full of decisions and tasks (because, life), is much more mundane than planning to get married ever was — and thank goodness for that.

Another key lesson I learned has to do with my perception of marriage and how that’s changed. Before I was indeed an ol’ married lady, I thought of the institution as the ultimate secure status, the pinnacle of relationship success. While being merely boyfriend and girlfriend was a fragile relationship state (always the chance of breaking up!), being husband and wife was a dignified, solidified existence. I figured I wouldn’t ever have another doubting thought about a relationship again once I had a ring on my finger.

Even though I am confident in my marriage, love my husband, and know that he loves me — and while being married does in many ways feel like the cozy nest I always hoped it would — there is far more at stake when you’re wed than when you’re simply dating.

Perhaps because I am anxious and overly worried by nature, rather than feeling carefree, I find myself thinking critically about my choices as a wife — how my actions affect my husband, how I can communicate better, talk more gently, be the person I want to be. (And I beat myself up more than I ever did while we were dating when I lose my temper or say something I don’t really mean.)

I’m not extra hard on myself out of fear of divorce or a worry of disappointing my husband, rather, I now feel a deeper responsibly to just be better. Showing up for my partner, and our marriage, as my best self matters far more now than it ever did before. Since, of course, we’re in this for life and all.

Finally, I’ve learned that while I do feel a sense of responsibility to myself and my husband to continue to be a better person, marriage hasn’t really changed our daily lives all that much. We still go out for drinks with friends, watch The Bachelor on Monday nights, spend lazy Saturday mornings in our pajamas, and take turns making each other coffee. Yet, even when we do these everyday things, we do them as husband and wife.

I love being able to call the man I’ve chosen by his new, shiny title, and likewise being his Mrs. Sometimes, hearing the still new-to-us labels spoken aloud (like, when we introduce each other now as husband and wife) takes me by surprises. In a good way, of course. When I hear those words, I feel grown up in a way I never have before.

I can only hope that, when we’re celebrating our own 50th anniversary, I still feel this joy and satisfaction, even after the word “wife” has been uttered my way hundreds of times. As it stands now, I can’t imagine ever getting tired of hearing it.

A Year Without Underwear


Having been promoted to a top management position in the space R & D field, Colonel Ralph Monfort finds himself too far from the action and decides to give himself a fiftieth birthday gift-his own retirement from the U.S. Air Force.

After a short description on how one prepares for such a trip, Monfort plunges into this unique travel experience with energy, wit, and the excitement of discovery. Written as a series of e-mailed reports from the field, you will soon find yourself vicariously sharing adventures in Africa, Europe, and Southeast Asia as if with an old friend. Whether it’s the pizza in France, the ruins of Rome, birding in South Africa, or the toilets of China, the gamut is covered and nothing is sacred in this global romp. Sprinkled with historical tidbits, odd anecdotes, and wry observation, A Year Without Underwear gives us an American “everyman” abroad.

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ May Be Game Of The Year — But There’s One Big Problem

arkhamknight

Batman attempts to deactivate an exploding collar on Catwoman in “Arkham Knight.”



Months after GamerGate first set video game culture ablaze with unbelievable resistance to the idea of feminist perspectives in the gaming industry, we have a new title that features some of the most compelling female characters in pop culture. “Batman: Arkham Knight,” which came out Tuesday, spotlights Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Oracle and Harley Quinn in major roles. But while these women are often represented as strong, independent and able in other media, their featured roles here often tell a different story: They are damsels in distress.

Many, many people will play this game, if previous entries are any indication. The last main title in the series, which has a couple of spinoffs, sold over 5 million copies. And that aside, “Arkham Knight” is actually an exceptional game taken on its own merits: It is devoted to a cohesive aesthetic and narrative in a way few other games are, the set pieces are compelling and it’s brimming with things to do. One moment you’ll be studying the microscopic details of a crime scene, and five minutes later you’re dodging drone fire in the middle of a populated city street. It all feels crunchy and good.

“Arkham Knight” will likely earn accolades as one of the standout titles of the year — it already holds a 91 on Metacritic — and that is precisely why its sins should not be ignored.

(Note: The text that follows contains some spoilers for the storyline in “Arkham Knight.”)

poison ivy
Poison Ivy appears in “Arkham Knight” with a barely-there shirt and a mossy crotch.

It’s really no big secret that gaming and tech are male-dominated industries, even if consumers are split basically down the middle in terms of gender. Plenty of people will play “Arkham Knight” and probably ignore its oftentimes troubling presentation of women — perhaps that’s simply because the game is exciting, and as soon as you settle into a moment, something explodes and you’re off to something else.

But others will play the game and feel offended. Or disgusted. Or threatened. Or simply unwelcome. Even if those people were outnumbered 100 to 1 in a population of 5 million customers, it would be worthwhile to examine why and do better next time. Because here’s the trouble with “Arkham Knight”: It is a great game tarnished by its dreadful depictions of certain characters and situations.

arkham knight
Poison Ivy is held hostage in “Arkham Knight.”

The baseline problem with “Arkham Knight” is that instead of taking opportunities to depict strong women, the game makes them weak. For the most part, the female characters suck.

When you first come upon Poison Ivy early in the story, she has a gun to her head. You rescue her, and then you lock her in the back of the Batmobile and drag her to police headquarters. Later in the game, Batman determines that Ivy can communicate with — literally — a big old tree that could counteract the effects of a chemical weapon that Scarecrow intends to detonate somewhere in Gotham City. So Batman hauls his way back to lockup and drags her back to the Batmobile like she’s a petulant child. Poison Ivy is basically a power-up for the player to collect, like a mushroom in “Super Mario.”

She is barely wearing clothes throughout the entire ordeal.

arkham knight
“Arkham Knight” recreates a troubling scene from “The Killing Joke” in which Barbara Gordon is shot and paralyzed by the Joker.

Catwoman, often portrayed as Batman’s equal, fares no better. Like Ivy, her storyline begins in custody. Her outfit is unzipped enough to show a massive slice of cleavage. Why? Because Catwoman is “sexy” and it’s apparently hard to portray sexiness without showing boob?

The Riddler has strapped her to a chair, and Batman is called to rescue her. You arrive on the scene and find that there’s an entire ordeal required to free her: Riddler has fitted her with a choker that will explode unless you deactivate a number of locks. The gameplay sometimes has Batman and Catwoman working together — you can switch between them at points — but the pattern almost invariably requires Batman to complete some feat of cunning, force and reflexes while Catwoman bums around in a locked chamber. Her liberation is essentially a prize for you, the player.

Things are absolutely worst for Oracle, a hero in a wheelchair who assists Batman remotely. To detail her storyline would reveal much about the largest plot points in “Arkham Knight,” but things do not go well for her. An incredibly problematic storyline from the comic books is retread in vivid detail: She is abducted and maimed and exists almost entirely in this context to stir angst in the featured male characters. Batman, Robin, Commissioner Gordon and Alfred fret over her like a baby missing from the crib.

harley quinn
Harley Quinn steps up.

These are not failures from a gameplay perspective. But they are artistic missteps, awful quirks that will make this game — and perhaps all video games by extension — seem incredibly stupid to any critical thinker who may have thought to give “Arkham Knight” a try.

This game does not exist in a vacuum. It arrives at a moment when women are still being shut out of the gaming and tech industries to the point where many are even looking for work elsewhere. It is bizarre that “Arkham Knight” both includes many women and diminishes them so plainly.

All of that said, there are some important caveats. First: Harley Quinn — Joker’s deranged on-again, off-again girlfriend — is actually kind of cool this time around. Her character design in “Arkham City” (NSFW) was incredibly sexualized and seemingly intended purely for the male gaze. (For an interesting discussion of this very topic, listen to episode 58 of the lovely “Isometric” podcast.)

Here, Harley Quinn’s decked out in a pretty serious tutu and barks orders at a bunch of armed dudes. She’s more covered than not. The whole thing struck me as fairly whimsical and a step in the right direction, even if it’s not a perfect representation.

And no one can argue that the comic book source material is free from cheesecake. There are, in fact, many comics featuring these characters that are several orders of magnitude more sexist than “Arkham Knight.” Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn in particular are often exploited for sexy fluff, as this page from “Harley and Ivy #2” shows. It’s by the great Paul Dini and Bruce Timm:

poison ivy

But there’s a major difference between this comic and something like “Arkham Knight” — something that maybe isn’t so obvious. This Poison Ivy could be appealing to men and women alike. The entire miniseries is devoted to Harley and Ivy wreaking havoc on their own terms — it’s “sexy” more than “sexist.” They actively and successfully strike back against the forces that oppress them. They aren’t seeking the approval of men, and they certainly don’t need a player to rescue them.

And not that we need an eye for an eye, but the two ladies also take a second to objectify some dudes in the third issue:

harley and ivy

It’s ostensibly fun for everyone. And that’s what we could use a little more of in these games.

Your Year of Yes

You ever hear of this? People’s “Year of Yes;” that year of their lives when they are going to change their point of view by oh, you know making a plan to say yes to: falling in love, losing weight, learning Chinese, hiking the Appalachian Trail, becoming a cat-wrangler, sailing the seven seas, getting their kicks on Route 66, planting an herb garden, churning their own butter, learning how to paint in oils, starting a small business, becoming a notary, getting into law school, fixing their relationship with their parents, becoming a Luddite, starting a sewing circle, getting the corner office, writing a YA novel about werewolves in love, moving to Seattle, playing the harp, whatever. Perhaps you’ve had your own Year of Yes? When done correctly, it can truly be life-changing.

Because, let’s be honest; what the Year of Yes really entails is giving ourselves permission to understand ourselves and our desires. Understanding and validating our desires in order to respect them, believe in them and thus ACT on them. It’s about giving ourselves permission (and courage) to take our desires — and by extension, ourselves — seriously. We have to take our goals, big or small, seriously in order to commit to the hard and frequently frightening work necessary to bring our dreams to life. We have to take our desire to learn Chinese seriously in order to do the hard work of finding a class and buying the books and moving outside of our (un)comfort zones long enough to give the language a chance to gel in our brains. Changing our lives is a process. It will, eventually, become fun, but at the beginning, it can be pretty miserable. Thus, in a deeper sense, your Year of Yes is about giving yourself permission to know and fight for yourself.

But that assumes that your Year of Yes is a year of being smart about what you say Yes to… right? For example, there’s a big difference in crafting a Year of Yes wherein you finally learn French, bike through the French countryside, start a blog about your adventures and eventually turn that blog into a novel or an indie movie. There’s a difference between that kind of passionate Year of Yes and deciding, blithely, that you’re going to get a better job in your Year of Yes, and so you send out three half-assed job applications, get rejected and/or ignored ( and understandably heartbroken and frustrated), you shave your head or get a tattoo on your neck (which could be kind of cool, I guess, if you weren’t 48 and working in a super conservative industry). I understand that you hate your job, but you could have spent that money and energy on creating a strategy to get out that industry into a job where when you show up with a sleeve tat, the boss will say, “Wow, cool,” and invite you out to lunch. Then, you two go out to lunch, and bond over margaritas and you get the courage to tell her your ideas to build the company’s business, she loves your creative brain and decides to give you a shot and swish!

Because otherwise, it sounds more like you just made your supervisor’s Year of Yes, since yes, your sketchy choices just helped her to help accelerate your journey out the door. Buh-bye. Now, it is true that for some of us, getting fired was a hoop we had to jump through in order to have the bare-knuckled impetus to change our lives. That’s fine… as long as you’re honest with yourself. Are you seriously surprised your actions had real-life consequences… or did you create a scenario that you not-so-secretly knew/hoped would end in you being fired? Your Year of Yes cannot successfully function without honesty.

I’m just suggesting that you, Dear Reader, you must determine that your Year of Yes is going to be about saying yes, I’m going to commit to my potential, to my dreams, to all that is best within me. Yes, I’m going to commit to doing smart, challenging things that further and accelerate my life, no matter how minutely frustrating and/or frightening they are. There’s a Year of Yes that allows you to get your mind right, gird your loins and say, through gritted teeth, hell yes to the hard work and the slow, systematic changes that bring you dramatically closer to the life you wish to be leading. What a triumphant Year of Yes that would be!

There’s a Year of Yes that allows you to truly change your life beyond skin-deep remedies — and let’s not kid ourselves, your Year will be damn hard work — and there’s, unfortunately, a Year of Yes that allows you to self-indulgently focus on saying yes to all your worst self-destructive impulses and suddenly, it’s another Year of Yes to all that you hate and fear and dread within you. Suddenly, it’s the end of the year, and you’re wondering why your Year of Yes turned out to be such a resounding No.

Azealia Banks Calls BET Awards ‘Bogus,’ Says Nicki Minaj Wins ‘Every Year’

Azealia Banks is never one to hide her feelings, and it’s safe to say she’s really not feeling her BET Award nomination for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj, Trina, Tink and Dej Loaf are up for the honor along with Banks, who took to Twitter on Monday to express her thoughts on the “bogus” award show:

Minaj certainly has been a favorite at the BET Awards and has taken home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for the last five consecutive years. She has yet to respond to Banks’ comments, but she’s likely basking in the afterglow of dropping the video for “Feeling Myself” with Beyonce.

Besides, Banks claims her comments weren’t supposed to be taken as jabs at Minaj anyway:

Rumor Has It: A 2000 Year Brainstorm 2012

Rumor Has It: A 2000 Year Brainstorm 2012


It is not my intent but I am flirting with bankruptcy. And because I need to liquidate my resources I need to sell my miniatures before I do so. So I am going to try and see if people will be willing to pay me for these books now that this site says many have. I don’t write off a cover-up. Nonetheless I am going to charge a book and see where it takes me. My intent was to keep them free but that is no longer an option. 11/5/14I should say it may be apparent to you from the first two books that save a couple of short blogs I appear to be playing Michael from Revelations 12:7 and not the Antichrist. I go more in depth into me being the Antichrist in 2012. It has more to do with my angels not showing themselves. In this installment the New Jersey Devils play the Kings from the City of Angels. Ironically it ends the way it does. I won’t spoil it.I go through legitimate logic on global warming to be followed by a thoroughly amateur estimate. Ultimately it resolved down to 10-20% of global warming coming from the heat we are generating which cannot escape the Earth because gravity holds it to us. To be compounded by greenhouse gases.I also watch the Bourne series and recognize innuendo which is coincident to my situation. Implying myself as being chosen for this role.I continue to elaborate on my musings of the feasibility and logistics of Heaven. I also go into more on the new Bible that was to be on my desk last Monday. About a third of the way through I conclude what I had written then I mailed it to the GRU of Russia and the MSS of China. They didn’t get back to me suggesting my angels decision to remain anonymous.I also smoke bowls and drink beers while continuing to talk shit to the FBI monitoring my computer while I write every word.I will stop spoiling everything but I need to for some of it to entice people to read it. I think the better parts are my humor.
