The evolution of women’s love lives: a timeline

Reaching from the middle of the twentieth century, when little girls dreamed of Prince Charming and Disney’s Cinderella graced movie screens, Carol Dyhouse charts the transformation of women’s love lives against radical social changes such as the passage of the Equal Pay Act, the acceleration of technological advancement, and improved access to contraception, bringing us up to the 2013 release of Frozen.

Language contact and idioms: out of India

My explanatory and etymological dictionary of English idioms is now in the publisher’s computer, and, most probably, I won’t discuss the material contained there until I find out whether the book has been accepted, but before that happens, I would like to touch on the subject mentioned in the title.Though hundreds of proverbs are international, I included very few of them in the dictionary, because they seldom have “an etymology,” and describing their sources (Ovid, Cervantes, universal wisdom?)...

But Housewives is different – and I’ve become an evangelist for its illicit thrill and numbing qualityAlready, 2021 has had no shortage of sobering moments. Armie Hammer (allegedly) being a cannibal. Azealia Banks boiling her dead cat. The pandemic refusing to evaporate like Cinderella’s stagecoach the second we bellowed “happy new year” into the eerie silence of our living rooms. But none has been more sobering t...

The Shapes of Stories

It’s January, so many people are thinking about shapes. Mostly the shape their body has taken on over the course of that indulgent, food-centered run from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. But with the new year, most of us vow to turn over new leaves and change some of our unhealthy habits for the better. Could your presentations need a tune up too? Could the next speech you give be better because you changed its shape? American writer Kurt Vonnegut has been talking about the shape of stories for quit...

‘Mom’s worth it’: US holiday travel surges despite outbreak

By TAMARA LUSH | Associated Press TAMPA, Fla. — Some are elderly and figure they don’t have many Christmases left. Others are trying to keep long-distance romance alive.

REVIEW: McDonald’s McRib (2020)

The McRib is back…for the 57th time! I was surprised to learn it debuted way back in 1981, and that it has apparently been eight years since McDonald’s has offered it nationwide in the U.S. Even though the McRib is far older than the internet, it might be the perfect food for our social media-focused world. It trends every time McDonald’s unleashes it. Also, furious debates ensue about whether the hype is warranted or just brilliant marketing, and if it is the best or worst fast food item in h...

‘Godmothered’ Stars Jillian Bell and Isla Fisher on the Responsibility of Leading a Girl-Powered Disney Adventure [Interview]

Godmothered is built on an indelible premise: what if a fairy godmother ventures into our world to prove that we still need magic, only to discover that the little girl she set out to assist has grown into a jaded adult with a couple of kids and loads of emotional baggage? Like Enchanted before it, this film leans heavily on Disney iconography, often playfully poking and prodding it from a thoroughly modern perspective. But in the end, it reveals why fairy tales still continue to resonate – the...
