How Amazon's 'Homecoming: S1' Reveals Toxic White Womanhood

None The Amazon series Homecoming: Season 1 has so far received positive reviews that focus on the show's exploration of corporate power and government bureaucracy, a "chilling portrait of corporate American greed" as Matthew Jacobs writes in Huffington Post. However, what's not getting the attention it needs is how the more obvious systems of corrupt corporate, military, and government power are fueled in the show by the less obvious system of white supremacy. While Homecoming is not explicit...

7 Deep Conditioners That Are Like CPR For Natural Hair

Sometimes our hair stresses us out. From 8-hour wash days to puffy twist-outs, we're often pulling out our hair in aggravation (literally, there's a handful of hair in the comb after every rushed detangling session). But did you ever think that maybe you're stressing your hair out, too? Between regular color appointments, the occasional silk press, and three months straight of protective styles, we get the feeling our hair is, well, sick of us.You can patch things up with your curls by giving t...

Bare Some Skin This Valentine's Day With These 17 Sheer Bras

Steadily over the last year, we've seen clothes get thinner, fabrics get less opaque and people get more and more daring when it comes to showing off some skin. It all began last February, when every designer from Prada to Eckhaus Latta sent slews of extra sheer pieces down the runway. Since then, see-through clothing has almost completely ditched its stigma, with a nip slip or no-slip-at-all moment becoming the norm rather than outrageous exception. So since we're essentially throwing modesty ...

Pop Culture's Next Scammer Obsession Is Elizabeth Holmes: Here's How Her Story Ended

After the breakout success of Netflix and Hulu’s Fyre Festival documentaries and with multiple adaptations of the story of New York City party scammer Anna Delvey coming our way, 2019 is shaping up to be the year of the scam.

Riverdale's Most Underrated Beauty Look Belongs To A Southside Serpent

Riverdale may be known for its core four characters — Betty, Jughead, Veronica, and Archie — but the teen drama has a full supply of supporting roles we love just as much (if not more). In season one, we got Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch), the rich, mean girl turned badass. Then in season two, we were introduced to Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan), Jughead's new Serpent friend at Southside High who, incidentally, ends up becoming Cheryl's girlfriend by season three.And while fans of the CW hit mi...

A DIY machine imagines 808 kicks if they were made of actual fire

Anyone can clone an 808. Not anyone can make a machine inspired by the 808 out of repurposed lighter springs, motors, and … oh yeah, flaming butane gas. Koka Nikoladze’s beat machines are going viral, and their demented, quirky sound tells you why. So, sorry NAMM – this may be the coolest gear we’ll see in January 2019. And not only is the concept novel, but his wacky tunes make for some toe tapping, eyebrow-raising good times, too. Full text: I always wanted to build something using fire. ...

Roland just made syncing Serato and TR drum machines automatic

The hybrid DJ set keeps getting fresh nudges. Now, Roland and Serato have added easy, automatic sync over USB for the TR-8, TR-8S, and the Boutique Series TR-08 and TR-09 drum machines.

25 Galentine's Day Gifts To Get Your Inner Circle

Valentine's Day is one of those things, like sushi or Pete Davidson, that you either really love... or really, really hate — and for good reason. If you're blissfully matched, February 14th is an excuse to get dressed up, drink a little too much champagne and pull out that sexy little lingerie set you got 50% off during last month's boxing day sales. But, if you're not romantically attached, it can be, well, kind of cringey. Or rather, it was, until people (a.k.a. the writers behind Parks and ...

6 Sneaker Colors You're About To See Everywhere

Once upon a time, shoe color options were limited. Our feet were enrobed in a safe black or brown, and for most, choosing a colorful shoe felt impractical. But as sneaker silhouettes get chunkier, the colors get wilder, and we feel increasingly more excited to lace up something bold and bright. Now, new colorways for popular sneaker designs are released constantly and, before you know it, you own Nike Air Maxes in five different hues. Nobody's judging, though. That's one of the great things abo...

This Is How Much Money Marie Kondo Has Made From Her Tidying Empire

Whether you've been using the KonMari method since The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up or you just binged Tidying Up on Netflix (and subsequently dumped your entire closet onto your bed), by now you (and the rest of the world) have likely been won over and thoroughly decluttered by Marie Kondo, the neatness guru who has made a career out of tidying up since 2014. Her runaway success can be attributed to the simplicity of her method: Keep items that spark joy, and part with those that do not.I...

29 Sentimental Charm Necklaces You'll Never Take Off

During your youth, you probably shared an affinity for charm necklaces with your BFF.

But as we’ve continued to see wrapped around the necks of just about every fashion person out there, the charm necklace (usually in the form of gold pendants) has taken center stage once again.Adding the finishing touch to any outfit, t...

This New Horror Movie Will Make You Fear Your Own Thoughts

The Prodigy For all the insomnia-inducing horror films in the cannon, there are still few places quite as scary as the insides of our own heads. Riddled with anxiety, cluttered with bad song lyrics and dormant high school math notes, and overloaded with emotional baggage, our brains are their own sort of thriller-drama. And that is precisely why The Prodigy, a thoroughly petrifying new psychological horror film from Orion Pictures, will haunt you to your very core. It's not about possesse...
