I think this year is the first time President's Day has felt worth celebrating! Considering the historic nature of our country's first African-American President, here are just a few other ground-breaking American political campaigns.
Several months ago, I remember hearing a movie reviewer say, "If you seen one teen vampire romance film this year, let it be Let The Right One In." I figured that since the Bitch site has been entranced by Twilight for what feels like months now, it would be appropriate to give this film its proper dues.
So, in honor of Valentine's Day and Kelsey's blog post on my favorite Swedish import, let me tell you a little about Let The Right One In.
Happy Valentine's Day! Okay, we all know that Valentine's Day is a vapid, capitalist, heteronormative holiday. The red and pink, the candy, the cards, the weird pressure to be in a relationship, it's all kind of annoying. But that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun, does it? Read on for some non-traditional Valentines, and to share your own thoughts on Cupid's (or Hallmark's?) holiday.
And you thought the Gandalf-on-Frodo slash fiction that circulates every time there’s a new LOTR installment was unsettling? You have no idea. Or actually, maybe you do. I didn’t, though, until longtime Bitch contributor Noah Berlatsky asked me if he could write about the Obama slash that’s apparently been sweeping the nerdier corners of these Internets for some time.
Notice that the Bitch blog just got a little more AWESOMER recently?

Last night, Annalee and I saw Swedish darling Lykke Li at the Hawthorne Theater here in Portland. The show included a kazoo solo, a megaphone, and covers of both Lil Wayne and Tribe Called Quest songs. Read on for more!
It is almost one and it still feels too early in the morning for this:
British young'uns Alfie Patten (age 13) and his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman (age 15) just gave birth to a bouncing baby of their own.
How is the media responding?
