My work computer crapped out on me Friday. I've been trying to get my internet life back together ever since. I'm not the most tech savvy lady so I'm getting a little grumpy.

I got your new awesome album right here. Cryptacize hails from Oakland, CA (fans of Deerhoof will recognize guitarist Chris Cohen) and I've been jamming out to their new record, Mythomania, since it came out a couple weeks ago. Its melodies are addictive (like Nedelle Torrisi's vocals) and moments of endearing twee and weirdness shine through the slow-synth jams and catchy, rockin'-pop hooks. They're hittin' the road next week so click through to see if they're taking over your town. Photo by Denny Renshaw Tue. May 12 San Francisco, CA @ Bottom of the Hill Tue.

Former SNL (and BUST cover, above) funny lady Amy Poehler will be awarded this year's Dove Real Beauty Award at the 34th Annual AWRT Gracie Awards. AWRT (American Women in Radio and Televison) and Dove, partnered since 2004, 'created the Dove Real Beauty Award to honor an individual who best embodies and expresses the 'substance and spirit' of real beauty through her life and career.' AWRT President Maria Brennan said, 'We are excited...Amy Poehler is an ideal recipient for this recognition balancing her many roles as entertainer, entrepreneur, advocate and mother.

Deradoorian Mind Raft Lovepump United While ostensibly a record made 'for you to do drugs to, or something,' Mind Raft, the debut EP from Dirty Projectors singer/bassist Angel Deradoorian, comes across just as easily as a study in deliberate deconstruction. Deradoorian, who uses only her surname as her solo moniker, diffuses the occasional New Age tang by singing with a slightly more mannered, downward-spiraling inflection here than we're used to, creating a self-described 'gothed out' vibe.

As a follow-up to the blog yesterday about Samantha Orobator, the British woman who became pregnant while incarcerated in Laos on drug trafficking charges, is escaping 'death by firing squad.' Whew! Like I said yesterday , I don't know if she was raped in prison or tried to get pregnant on purpose to spare her life, but it has worked. Orobator's trial in Laos will likely take place sometime next week. --Regina links: cnn.

  In case you were caught unawares, we are currently 4 days into National Masturbation Month .

According to The Detroit News , Meg White(age 35) is engaged to marry Jackson Smith (27), son of Patti Smith and Fred Sonic Smith (deceased). Talk about marrying into royalty! Way to go Meg, coolest mother in law of all time, congrats to all.

Want to read a book that truly sucks...in a good way? Head to your local bookstore May 5th to pick up a copy of Dead and Gone , the ninth installment in Charlaine Harris' vampire-riffic Sookie Stackhouse series (the inspiration for the sultry HBO hit True Blood).

A British woman named Samantha Orobator (pictured) has been charged with drug trafficking and is facing the death penalty in Laos. Orobator, 20, was arrested for carrying half a kilo of heroin back in August in the country. OK, if you're like me and have watched enough of Locked Up Abroad, it's easy to see it's definitely not a pretty thing to be incarcerated in a foreign country. Especially one who believes in 'death by firing squad,' supposedly the sentence for that amount of heroin in Laos, which is what Orobator faces. The thing is, she's pregnant.

So apparently the Hipster Grifter aka Kari Ferrell turned herself in to the cops in Philly on Sunday night. I know a lot of people are fascinated with this girl, but really, what is the big deal? She's a cute Asian girl that happens to also be a really good liar. I do like that freewiliamsburg.com made a foldable doll, and promises to make a 'new Williamsburg foldable celebrity' each month.
