I’d call my relationship with food average. I have never been the type to shop exclusively at Whole Foods, to frequent food blogs or spend much time thinking about locally sourced kale. I don’t abide by any particular diet. I probably eat more GMO’s than I’d care to think about. More

5 Times ‘Goosebumps’ Stories (Sort of) Happened in Real Life
Nostalgia

As a child, hearing the haunting voice of a mysterious narrator utter the words, “viewers beware, you’re in for a scare,” unleashed a chill down my spine and a paranoid fear of monster blood, vampire neighbors, and psychopathic ventriloquist dolls.  I thought those days were over, but R.L. Stine, like his “Goosebumps” books, can’t be brushed away by time. On September 30, the teen-horror author released “Party Games,” the newest addition to the famed “Fear Street” series. More

An Oral History of the Period Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Spent in Cambridge While Attending Harvard

Here’s a little behind-the-scenes music industry process: When a band puts out a new album, the record company works with a publicist to draft a press release which will accompany review copies sent out to all critics. This press release, while purporting to be an innocuous, plain statement of the facts, is actually a carefully crafted document embedded with subtle talking points that the record company hopes will influence each and every statement made about the band and their new album by members of the press.

Pee-Wee Herman to Return to Silver Screen, But Will He Translate With a New Generation?
Comedy

Giggly ’80s comedy icon Paul Reubens had tremendous success over two decades ago with his kid-friendly alter-ego Pee Wee Herman. The bow-tied chucklehead was the star of several films including “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure,” and “Big Top Pee-Wee” as well as a successful television series, “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse,” and despite being in the news for some of the wrong reasons in recent years, he has continued to keep the character alive, even bringing him to Broadway.

Annie Lennox says Beyoncé is ‘Feminist Lite’ and ‘Twerking Is Not Feminism’
Theater/Performance Art

Perhaps because she’s promoting her new album “Nostalgia,” or perhaps because she’s almost 60 and says whatever she damn well pleases, Scottish singer Annie Lennox went in on Queen Bey’s feminist credentials in two separate interviews in the last month. In the first, with PrideSource, she called Beyonce “feminst lite,” and in an interview yesterday with NPR, she clarified that “twerking is not feminism.”
