Have you ever tried tracking what you spend your money on? It seems like every financial planner suggests keeping track of the number of lattes you buy, as well as keeping your receipts so you know exactly where your $$$ is going. Well, Kate Bingaman-Burt takes this financial tracking to a whole new level--she draws what she purchases and then posts the images on her blog Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today? She also prints out a zine with these same ... Read More
I don't believe in the dumb blonde myth; as far as I'm concerned, whether your head is empty or full (?) doesn't depend on the shade of your mop. For example, check out this genius keyboard approved by 'the American Blonde Association of America'. Aside from being adorable bubblegum pink, this little gadget swaps out totally boring tech-speak keys for labels like 'Oops!' (backspace), 'WARNING! size XXL letters' (caps lock), and 'The Big One: I Need My Space Key' ... Read More

I Love My Fart Party

BY Web Intern in General

I can't remember how I discovered Julia Wertz's comic Fart Party but I do remember my old coworkers looking over my shoulder and saying, 'What the hell is Fart Party? What kooky business are you looking up?' The answer was simple, it's a comic put out by this girl from San Francisco who now lives in Brooklyn and she shares little stories from her childhood, as well as the crazy/odd/hilarious happenings in her life now. Anywho, if you're a fan you should lend her ... Read More

Go Alanis!

BY Web Intern in General

On October 11th, in Susanville, CA, Alanis Morissette is going to run the Biz Johnson Trail Marathon to raise money for the National Eating Disorders Association. I don't know if you've see Alanis lately but she is kicking ass. Last year she started a new health regime, which focused on changing her diet and her lifestyle. While training for the marathon and changing her relationship with food, she decided to share this information with others and pair up with the ... Read More

CREEPY!

BY Web Intern in General

Remember Bianca in Lars and the Real Girl? When I first found out you could order that lovely female companion with your choice of hair, eye, and silicone (skin) color, I was flabbergasted. What sane person would pay hundreds of dollars for this?! Go to the Bunny Ranch in Nevada if you have a difficult time with women and want the 'girlfriend experience.' Well, a German company called First Androids wants you to get just a bit closer to actually being with a ... Read More

ON, IT, AT?

BY Web Intern in General

If you're a huge fan of Tegan and Sara like myself, you're most likely patiently awaiting their new record (only have until Oct. 27!) and the lengthy tour that is sure to follow. In the meantime, you can speculate how cute their new trio of books, On, It, At, is going to be and put aside money for the pre-sale order (which begins Sept. 28). The trio of books chronicles different time periods over the course of a year in the lives of two of my favorite ladies. ... Read More
I'm sure you all know by now but Patrick Swayze, 57, passed away last night after his 20-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Now, I am beyond bummed about this. Not only was Swayze a talented actor who would do anything for his craft, the way he carried himself after being diagnosed with the disease was commendable and the marking of a truly superb individual. I remember watching Dirty Dancing at a family gathering when I was a wee one and becoming wide eyed ... Read More
That's right! Isabella Rossellini's short-short film series about the love lives of earth's most beloved and bizarre creatures returns! This season, expect more tales from the amorous deep, coupled with lessons on ocean ecology and the impact of our aquatic eating habits. Parents and modest viewers, take note: Rossellini's storytelling (which is equal parts poetry and school play) is like a slightly racier version of Nature, and a lot more fun. Dive into the new ...

(Interview by Sara Graham, photo by Michael Lavine) Jack White is the king of founding hip-as-shit bands. First he created the White Stripes, then the Raconteurs, and now his latest project, the balls-out, bare-boned group the Dead Weather, is spot-on rock gold. The band features Alison Mosshart (of the Kills) sharing vocal duties with White, and Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (the Raconteurs) round out the lineup. Their dirty-blues, ... Read More
MTV gets a lot of grief about losing it's music video mojo, but after last night's debacle of a Video Music Awards, rejecting the music world doesn't seem like a bad idea. At least in the interest of sanity. By now the world knows about Kanye's chumpy upstaging of dixie teen-queen Taylor Swift; moments after (adorably overwhelmed) Swift scooped up her first Moonman for Best Female Video, Kanye West nabbed the mic to praise Beyonce, who Swift beat out for the ...
