Where to volunteer in NYC

In the words of Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place — though actually posed by philosopher T.M. Scanlon — what do we owe to each other? We’re all here together, so we should probably work together to make things better. Volunteering can help us do exactly that, and it does a wealth of good for everyone, including those being helped, the world around us, and ourselves. New York City has its fair share of problems, but it also has a number of places willing to address them. Finding somewhere to ...

In a Dark Year, 2018’s Film and Television Made the Case for Kindness and Decency

You don’t need me to tell you that 2018, like 2017, has been a uniquely dark time. (Well, you shouldn’t need me to tell you that.) One purpose of an entertainment website, and indeed popular culture in general, is to provide a distraction from or a refraction of the world at large. But as that world grows grimmer, it’s unsurprising to see a lot of popular culture that serves as a funhouse-mirror version of our world’s grimness. I mention this not because I want to wallow in that grimness; inst...

10 Best Paul Rudd Roles

10 Best Paul Rudd Roles Paul Rudd is our greatest everyman—he could pass as someone’s dad, someone’s husband, someone’s best friend, whoever. He’s funny but can do drama, he’s charming but can play a bad guy, he really is unmatched in versatility. It’s no wonder the guy can play a Marvel hero, a dumb politician, and a cool camp counselor all in the same year.

What Do We Want? A Plan B Vending Machine! When Do We Want It? Now!

Instead, it sells MyWay, a generic brand of emergency contraception, and male and female condoms.It’s safer-sex on-demand, and for that, students can thank Rachel Samuels, last year’s executive chi...
