I love the Black Keys, their latest record Attack and Release (Nonesuch) is amazing, here is the video for Your Touch. I think one of the reasons I love them so much is that singer Dan Auerbach sounds exactly like Paul Rodgers from the 70's band Bad Company. Below is a BC clip from 1975, check out the crop top and white bells, and those might just be clogs on his feet.
Irrepresible Blythe has gone from forgotten B-line dolly to indie art icon, no small part due to Gina Garan's photography. Now, Blythe's discovered a new art form--the installation. Gallery Hanahou, in collaboration with Japanese art collective ALFORT, presents "Lilliput ~ my little friends." Presented as a "scene from the imaginary Lilliput ballet, in which you, the hero or heroine of the story, fall into a deep sleep and are whisked away to a foreign land...You awake to find yourself on the shore of unconsciousness in this immersive installation of dreams, fantasy, and memory.
Ok, I am obsessed with fireplaces, and am always scheming for a way to put one in my apartment in NYC, but since I dont have a chimney, I would have to build one of those smokeless gel ones, and I bet they smell like nasty fumes, so it probably wont happen. Anyway, stumbled on this ridic gadget, the Travelmate, which I was sure was a hoax, but maybe not? For 1,300 Euros you too can have a fire in a breifcase. Bizarre.
There's been a lot of talk lately about Thomas Beatie, the FTM transexual who is currently pregnant, especially since he appeared on Oprah yesterday. He's being touted as the "first pregnant man."However, there was another male pregnancy that followed this exact same set of circumstances almost a decade ago.  Matt Rice, the FTM partner of Pat Califia, gave birth to their son back in the late 1990's.
I'm not a dog owner, nor do I play one on TV, but I'm obsessed with the Animal Planet show "It's Me Or the Dog." Partially it's because I'm a sucker for seeing dogs misbehaving adorably, but I also have a massive girl crush on the show's resident trainer, Victoria Stilwell. She's like a tiny package of cranky British sternness, administering verbal beatdowns to dog owners insane enough to do things like feed their pets ice cream cones every afternoon (an actual example). Stilwell even dresses the part—she's usually in some getup that's half-equestrian, half-Dominatrix.
As an unashamed Leslie Hall-ic, I often find myself scoping out her youtube channel for new videos, live performances, or episodes of Ring My Bell, Leslie's call in show where she chats and offers her wise advice to live callers while eating potato chips, discussing Midwest culture, and doing stretches...Watch and laugh for yourself.
How many fashion boutiques do you know that can boast a yoga center and art gallery?  Renaissance women Hekima Hapa and Ngozi Odita, proprietors of Harriet's Alter Ego, are expanding their repertoire with the Hustle & Sew beginner's sewing class.
I'm a little embarrassed to admit to watching American Idol, but it was really great having Dolly on the show tonight. Of course she is too nice to "judge anyone"-she is just so sweet you cant help but love her! And for once the kids did pretty good with their versions of her songs. Unfortunately my favorite "Coat of Many Colors" which always gets me a little verklempt, was sung by my least favorite, Kristy lee,  and it did not wow. Australian Michael was great, and Saisha did a 1/2 Dolly 1/2 Whitney version of "I will always love you".
Check it out! Premeire.com just posted a list of of their top ten  "Kickass Female Characters.
Well hot damn, it’s about time! From years of carrying Band-Aids in my purse, spending ridiculous amounts of money on pedicures and trying to come up with the perfect remedy to heal gnarly bunions and blisters, men will (for one day) grasp the reasoning behind all of my bitching. Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is an organization that will literally make men walk a mile, in heels, to protest sexualized violence against women. The walk educates the public and raises money for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence centers, and women’s services.
