So maybe you think Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Larry Clark were some amazing photographers. You probably think they had an amazing eye, sense of composition, appreciation for color, and so on. But when you look at the incredible found photo collection of  the mysterious Superbomba , you may reconsider. Or, at  least, you'll have a newfound appreciation for the importance of editing in the art of photography. Superbomba's gallery of found images are ... Read More

Leave m' Lily Alone!

BY Susan in Music Stuff

Last Tuesday night I went to see Lily Allen at the Bowery Ballroom with Matt and Kim and it was such an awesome show. Except for the people...When miss L.A. got on stage she was super cute (as usual) but when she took a swig from a glass of what could have been water or soda, everyone in the audience was shouting 'Yeah Lily! Way to go!' and other encouraging words for her to 'drink' even though she has apparently quit drinking and drugs entirely. It was pretty ... Read More
Remember the story we reported a few weeks back, about how men from an extremist conservative group called Sri Ram Sena had attacked a number of young Indian women who had been committing the horrible crime of having a pint at a pub? (Visit our earlier post to see the truly upsetting video of the attack ).  Well, our Indian sisters weren't about to sit around feeling sari for themselves! The day after our post, they organized  a giant, nationwide protest, ... Read More
Since we're officially stranded in the gray purgatory between V-Day and spring (and all I want to do is hide under the covers, browse YouGrowGirl.com and wait for my daffodils to bloom), I'm drawn to anything floral--especially these sweet pieces by UK-based Sew Lovely. Designer Charlotte Alexandra's collection of jewelry and hair accessories bursts with blossoms, and nearly everything is well under $23. I can't wait to host a garden party in the Satin Petals ...

Built by Wendy Fall o9!

BY Laurie in General

Thursday night I went to see the Built by Wendy Fall collection and it was beautiful. With a mix of super short wool dresses and skirts and sleek pants, the vibe was part sexy librarian with a little mod kick for good measure. I really loved the tweed pants and jeans with the little tie at the bottom, sort of a reined in harem pant, but much more utilitarian than hippie. I also was digging the print D'Urberville dresses and tops which had a chic vintage look. A ... Read More
Whatever, some people are in love, blah blah blah. I've never really cared about V-day, it kind of steps on my birthday toes (which was yesterday by the by, amazing recap blog coming Monday! Teaser: I wore a belted Snuggie over a Budweiser bathing suit). But what I do love about the holiday is the tradition of listening to A Date With John Waters in the office (as you know we have a couple music traditions we honor around here). Check this NPR interview ... Read More

I love the gals from Ladies Circus and all the peeps that live at The House of Yes, so when Anya called me today to help spread the word about this fundraiser I was stoked to help. Last year her house burnt down and her and her roommates have been building an amazing new space. It's part house and part creative/performance space. She is auctioning herself off on a Valentine's Day date and the money they raise is going to build The Sky Box in the House of ... Read More

Is it Friday yet?

BY Dawn in Music Stuff

It feels like this week will never end! If you feel the same way here is something to get us through until the weekend. How adorable is this super tiny little guy?! My favorite part is at 1:21 when he completely goes nuts on the ... Read More
