  • It’s been almost a full week since we caught wind of the bro in his “Eat, Sleep, Rape, Repeat” T-shirt, which means we’re hours away from the second installment of the two-weekend Coachella extravaganza.

    Which also means it’s time to remind everyone who’s attending how to be a living human person.

    Here’s the thing about music festivals: I’ll pass, thanks. I don’t like them, I think they’re overwhelming, and if I really like a band, I would rather hog them all to myself at their very own concert, where I can be far removed from port-a-potties and quite closer to indoor plumbing. 

    But alas, this weekend is Coachella, which is a music festival. And with music festivals come the reminder that it’s very easy not to dress like a terrible person: you just decide to put a little bit of thought into the clothes you wear.

    I know it seems daunting. And if you’re heading to the festival this weekend, your first goal might not be to avoid cultural appropriation or shirts about sexual assault

    Gwyneth Paltrow vowed to live on $29 (about $36 CAD) of food for a week. She lasted four days.

    Last week when Gwynnie tweeted her paltry pickings as part of the SNAP Challenge in support of the Food Bank for New York City us regular people snapped.

    “I love my kids and I would do anything for them. But I love my husband more.”

    It’s a phrase not uttered often, but one writer is saying it’s the mantra she lives by.

    In a recent article on YourTango, Amber Doty writes: “Eight and a half months into our marriage, while we were still getting comfortable in our roles as husband and wife, we suddenly became mom and dad. I won’t say that our son was poorly planned—we were both anxious to start our family—but I will say that in hindsight becoming a mother in the same year that you become a wife is not for the weak.

    The first year of our son’s life was the most difficult of our marriage to date and it is also the year I learned a very important lesson: My husband must always come before our children."

    She goes on to say that in a recent survey, half of experts polled believe that wives should prioritize their husbands over their kids.

    Unsurprisingly, many parents are less than impressed. But does Doty have a point?

    “There’s no question that
