Keeping Up With The Kardashians Episode 12 Recap: “Decisions, Decisions”

It’s New York Fashion Week during this week’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kim and Kourtney are pulling looks for the trip, but Kourtney has not fully committed to going. Kim is frustrated with her sister’s indecisiveness. “I’m not going to know until the last minute,” Kourtney says. Kim holds her a spot on the jet and even boots some of her glam squad to fly, gasp, commercial. “If you can’t decide, then just don’t come,” Kim says. Kourtney is torn, but she wants to be there for Kanye. “So, I think I’m going to come,” she says, seemingly making an actual decision. Meanwhile, Rob has made the… Read More

The Leftovers Season 3, Episode 7 Recap: “The Most Powerful Man in the World (& His Identical Twin Brother)”

Black and white. Good and evil. Or, grey and more grey. These diametric motifs are hangings in Damon Lindelof land, a universe filled in with the lush, pontificating moral core of Lost, and the surreal, didactic journey of The Leftovers, which, in this penultimate episode, hones in on a thesis that binds the shows into one thorny beating heart: that to love someone is to suffer. Just as Jack suffered for the love of Kate, Kevin Garvey is torn open — somewhat literally — by the fact that he could never love Nora enough. As two Underworld Kevins — one dressed in black, one in white — stare knowingly at… Read More

The Leftovers episode 7 recap: Kevin Garvey finally finds meaning

To say that a show “teaches you how to watch it” sounds like damnation through faint praise, as if tuning in will up your cool quotient, but leave you craving the comfort of another Law and Order marathon as you roll your eyes at an hour of snotty abstruseness. Or it may, in fact, be the highest form of praise, suggesting that only the most astute and attuned viewer, the grand literati of pop culture, can appreciate the show’s inscrutable artistry. In truth, The Leftovers may be dense (and, at times, unintelligible), but it teaches us to connect more fully with our own feelings. The show resonates because it has… Read More

This Is The Most Miserable Airport In America

Photo: Joe Raedle/Getty Images There are two kinds of traveling New Yorkers: Those who swear by JFK and LaGuardia loyalists. Meanwhile, nearby Newark Liberty International Airport is just the worst, Travel + Leisure reports. An annual U.S. airport ratings report released by MilesCards.com rated the New Jersey stopover as the most miserable in the country. The travel credit card comparison site sized up airports’ delays along with takeoff and taxiing wait times. Newark bottomed out, while San Jose and Portland’s hubs flew above the competition. Newark International already crashed and burned in a previous Travel + Leisure worst airport citation for “miserable check-in and security lines.” When it comes to… Read More

This Woman Used A Pair Of Tights To Make A Point About Body Image

While side-by-side photos are often used on Instagram to document athletic progress, many body-positive advocates have been using them to post photos taken only minutes apart to show just how deceptive social media can be. Body-positive advocate Milly Smith, also known as @selfloveclubb, posted photos of herself on Instagram on Sunday to make a point about unrealistic body standards. One of the photos shows Smith wearing her control-top tights high up around her waist, while the other shows her wearing the tights slung low on her hips, exposing her stomach. “Same girl, same day, same time,” she wrote in her caption. “Not a before and after. Not a weight loss… Read More
