Chuck Bass just gets more foxy with each and every episode. Also loving the Nate and Mrs. Robinson storyline, since I have not seen Madchen since the Twin Peaks days.
If you are looking for a good time in NYC on Thursday night (Sept. 4), search no further than the Cordero record release party at Joe's Pub. Come celebrate the kick off of their tour in support of their new release, De Donde Eres (Bloodshot Records). Lead singer Ani Cordero promises to woo you with the bands indie-rock latin songs, infectious fun will definitely be had by all. Additional dates here.
...and were disappointed in the movie, have I got a comic for you. Anna Mercury is that rare comic action heroine who's actually wearing clothes that one could conceivably kick some ass in. She's also got a mountain of red hair and a bad attitude. She's trying to save a futuristic city that may or may not actually exist, and she's got to do it by herself, and the clock is ticking...
At long last, the extended RZA interview. Just click the image above to enter his chamber. Turn your audio up cause this voice is as sweet and smooth as cough syrup down Lil Wayne's throat.
I get way too much enjoyment from Stuffonmycat.com and probably visit way too often. And if I wasn't allergic to them, I'd no doubt already be a cat lady. Some of my favs after the jump...
Planned Parenthood handed out more than 700 pounds of condoms at the Democratic National Convention, and not just because Dems are sexy. Each condom was enclosed in a hot pink matchbook bearing the message: ''Protect Yourself From John McCain (In This Election).''

This weekend I'll be celebrating a belly that has been full of beans and cheese for 26 years, and I really need to have this cake made by Amanda Leamons . The tortilla chips are made out of fondant!!! But I realize my chances are as thin as a finely sliced avocado, which is why I'll be taking baking classes over this next year. By next August, I'll be able to bake this cake myself, and not share with anyone.
This Saturday, my favorite noise punks, Parts and Labor are performing as part of a three band round robin with Aa and Pterodactyl! All three bands will be set up simultaenously, with the audience in the middle, as they trade off on songs. It'll be epic, and you you will be there. I'm pretty stoked about seeing the new Parts and Labor lineup.
Come ride in train full of artwork this Saturday, August 30th, when a Chicago CTA train is converted into a mobile gallery from 6 pm - 10 pm. The event is organized and hosted by Lethal Poetry and Salvo, a think tank of artists who want to bring art into the public sphere. ''Our passion is not only to provide Chicago artists with a means to exhibit their work unconventionally,'' they say at www.chicagoartontrack.com, ''but to redefine the public's role in the art irreversably.
Hell to the yes! Above, Alice Paul toasts women's right to vote, a fight she faught like a warrior (spending time in jail and going on a hunger strike, etc), and which was ratified 88 years ago today (see Emily's post, below). You've probably heard of Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, but today it's time to take a moment and give thanks to Ms. Alice for all she did. To learn more, visit http://www.alicepaul.
