  1. Ready Your Broad Swords: Princess Munchkin is Coming

    Bad Stuff: No bad stuff.

    Munchkin Princesses is a fifteen card expansion to the infamous kick-down-doors-grab-all-the-items-everlastingly-ruin-your-relationship-with-your-friends card game, which adds self-reliant princesses of all genders as one of the player classes. I can easily imagine adding this pack, currently in production and not yet for sale, to my Munchkin deck: who could say no to a "Rescue Yours

  3. “Excuse Me, Princess“: The Princess Type, for Good or Ill, Part 2

    Venture again into the pretty pink minefield.

    Princesses, despite what we may think of their relevance, seem to be everywhere we look. In movies, in television, in products aimed at young girls, the trope of the princess is going as strong as ever, often as an old type wearing a new costume.

  4. “Excuse Me, Princess“: The Princess Type, for Good or Ill, Part 1

    Venture into the pretty pink minefield with us!

    How do we create a complex woman character who can give girls a choice in who they identify with, but that Hollywood will still regularly produce? And how can we do it while encouraging the qualities of modern feminism, instead of diminishing them?

  5. GoldieBlox Is Back with Another Adorable Commercial, Hopefully They Cleared the Song This Time

    That sure is a ridiculous-looking egg.

    GoldieBlox got into some trouble with The Beastie Boyz over one of their earlier commercials that parodied the song "Girls," but they won't let that keep them down. They're back with a new commercial showing off their engineering toys for girls, and they've brought some interesting statistics along with them.

  6. Princess The Football-Predicting Camel Has Passed Away, We Might As Well Cancel The Super Bowl

    God needed another 2,000 pound camel angel.

    Sports fans everywhere might not realize that for the past twenty years, the success of their favorite football teams was dependent on the will and predictions of an unlikely source: a 2,000 pound camel named Princess.

  7. Those Conical Princess Hats? Borrowed Fashion From Mongol Warrior Women

    Consider the Following

    You know, the ones that you made out of construction paper, tape, and a bit of whatever was left over from the trip to the fabric store for the princes party you were invited to when you were seven. The ones inspired by one brought back to Europe by Marco Polo, who'd borrowed it from a Mongol queen. Since Mongol dress was more or less gender neutral, the very vertical hats (sometimes five to seven feet) helped differentiate the male and female silhouette from a distance. But I don't want to give it all away; you can read more at Medieval POC.

  9. What If All Disney Princesses Were Sloths?

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    We'd have really slow moving Disney films but they'd be ten times cuter. "A Facebook conversation occurred….I needed a break from finals….and this happened," writes Phillip Light of this unique art pairing. Check out what Snow White, Belle, and (my favorite) Merida would look like as sloths. Oh and for those wondering, there's nothing in our bylaws that says we can't do more than one sloth post a day.

  10. The Super Bowl Ad We Forgot: the One With a Warrior Princess

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    In my rush to remember all the Super Bowl ads from last night that were worth remembering, I forgot this Toyota commercial. It's got a pretty familiar plot of a genie whose wishes always have a bit of an ironic twist to them. Sort of a monkey's paw kind of thing. Except there's one particular wish in here that gets an "ironic" twist that we have entirely non-ironic positive feelings for. See if you can figure out which one it is. (via Think Progress)
