    Green Day Video Fail

    Over at Gender Focus, Jessica Crichter expresses her disappointment of, and <a href="http://www.gender-focus.com/2012/08/25/an-open-letter-to-green-day-what-... out</a> the too many things that are wrong with Green Day's new video <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWwMqa-_210">Oh, Love</a>. A shout out to <a href="http://www.womenactionmedia.org/">WAM!</a> is included in the piece. On a side note: Congratulations to <a href="http://www.womenactionmedia.org">WAM!</a> for exceeding their recent fundraising goal and it is not too late to become a "Superhero" if you have not already done so! Still looking for a reason to become one? The aforementioned terrible video is another one.

    Remember ROCKRGRL? It's now MEOW!

    ROCKRGRL was an awesome magazine about women in rock music that had too-short a lifespan. Founder Carla DeSantis Black has launched a Kickstarter fundraiser to help fund a limited-edition book of quotes from the many artists that were featured in the magazine that is forthcoming. If you miss ROCKRGRL like I do,<a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/carlablack/the-grl-talk-book-231-quo... help make the book a reality</a>. Awesome goodies await donors! Also check out Carla's project and website <a href="http://meowonline.org">MEOW</a>, which is keeping ROCKRGRL alive in a web format!
