    The Playboy Club is About Women's Empowerment?

    I am so not buying the shit being shoveled out about how the new NBC show The Playboy Club is about women's empowerment. I wish I were a good enough writer at this moment to pen one of the "really" segments that Amy Poehler and Seth Myers did on SNL's Weekend Update, because that is how I feel abou...

    Guest Post: Wanda Bershen "Recognizing Where Indie Film Began"

    It seems that most Indie Film Makers & Lovers think Indie began in the late 80's or early 90's.
