SXSW has become such a mega-star in the summer festival constellation that it can be hard to sift through the clutter and find the one band/film/event that makes it all worthwhile.  I personally find the music festival way too hot to endure and the "Interactive" events a bit too chilly — but the film festival? The film festival is just right. I saw so many great films (and missed so many others...) that I wish I could have stayed another week. But for round-up's sake,...
  Are you having a particularly grumpy Thursday? Has the wrath of the polar vortex (are we still even in it?) finally pushed you to your limit? Allow me to console your wind-burned faces with a little comedy, courtesy of Hari Kondabolu. This video is not particularly new, but a little bit of Kondabolu never hurt anyone. Seriously. He’s one of the only comedians I’ve experienced that doesn’t rely on typical tropes to write his jokes, and it’s refreshing. I’m not sure how many more Dane...
This is the cutest thing I have seen today: Major props to American Eagle Outfitters for making a fake line for animals (complete with a mockumentary) to help raise money for rescue organizations.    ...their creative team deserves to be showered in sloppy, wonderful, St. Bernard kisses.    Also, the “American Beagle Outfitters Dogumentary” is a must-watch!

The history surrounding burlesque is complex and fascinating, and thanks to the Charles McClaghy Collection, we can catch a glimpse of those on the forefront of exotic dancing from then to now. These original ladies were the backbone of the nightlife entertainment industry through a period of great prosperity in America: the turn of the twentieth century.  While burlesque...
Some excellent Secondhand News for your Thursday doldrums (teehee): Christine McVie is re-joining Fleetwood Mac. Then, Fleetwood Mac is going back into the studio– the same studio, in fact, where they recorded Tusk in 1979. Then, they're going on an American tour. U.S. dates begin this September. This is not a drill, ladies.  Keyboardist/singer McVie (who we can thank for various top ten hits, like Don't Stop)  is the last to re-join history's most gossipy band. She follows Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and her ex-husband John McVie, who's reportedly on...
