Who's going to see the Biggie movie Friday night? I hope it's good. My significant other, the very talented photographer Michael Lavine , worked with Biggie several times back in the day, so I've heard some interesting stories. I know when people make a bio, they have to reference the most iconic images, so its fitting that the movie poster echo's one of Michaels shots. Check out our interview with the actor who plays Big, Jamal Woolard, in the new issue hitting the stands any day. You can also see an interview w Michael here at Feature Shoot, a very cool new photo blog.
(Photos by Amanda Jaffe ) So Saturday, I visited the UnBridaled Expo , despite my absolute lack of interest in all things bridal. You should believe me when I say that getting married is the furthest thing from my plans these days, yet I spent my morning trying on jewelry, scoping out bamboo undies, and best of all, watching a fashion show of eco-friendly local designers' work, modeled by the Philly Roller Girls! Check out more photos below the jump. Violet Temper Mo Pain Ida Bangder I want this ring.
Thank you, Amy Sedaris. Or should I say, Ms. Cameltoe? The new Wayans Brothers movie- which, by the way features SIX Wayans- Dance Flick comes out February sixth and we can't wait. Amy Sedaris plays the dance instructor guiding Tracy Transfat to her dreams of dancing stardom. Check out the preview we found at Concrete Loop and get ready to choreograph your way to the theater.
Oh yeah, baby, you know what time it is. It's business time. TV business. Flight of the Conchords business.
The LigerBeat benefit party this Sat was a raging boner of a success. We raised enough money to print the zine so start getting ready for the LigerBeat release in Feb! The dance floor was insane. Dicks were poppin off at the front door (you got in free is you showed your dick)! Thanks so much for everyone that helped out. We seriously could not have raged so hard without all of you. We have a Ligerbeat blog now! So you ladies can keep up with snuff. The site should be up soon for pre-order issues.
The geniuses behind my personal favorites Street Carnage, Wonder Showzen and the Daily Show have made a new Adult Swim show called 'Totally 4 Teens.' It is an insanely hilarious play on all the cheese that I grew up watching on television like MTV's TRL, shows on Nickelodeon, and YTV (if you are Canadian, you know what I'm sayin'.) Tacky sets, open-mouth breathing kids, and of course a too rad for mom and dad kind of host tops off the perfect parody.
  I was really into Be Your Own Pet, and wasn't terribly surprised when they broke up (momentarily disappointed maybe) but am psyched to hear lead singer Jemina Pearl is working on a solo album. She'll be playing with Denver's excellent contribution to Grunge, The Fluid this Saturday in Brooklyn.
Though I'm not the biggest fan of cold weather (as I type this, there's an inch of ice smothering every sidewalk in my city), I do have a serious soft spot for tights. Patterns, solids, knits, whatever--as long as they're easy to slip on with my staple black dresses and oxfords, I'm a happy girl. So I'm absolutely loving the stuff over at We Love Colors. Nearly every sort of tight you could ever want, all available in a crazy-go-nuts palette of 45 colors. Plus, the prices are pretty reasonable, so you can stock up without annihilating your paycheck.
We obviously watch alot of tv around here, and the Snuggie infomercial is all the rage. There are so many awesome things about the Snuggie, lets list them here; it's cult like, it looks like an American Burqa or Hare krishna suit, it supports size diversity, it is mulletlike (business up front-party in the back -its backless!), it enables you to break out the 'Like a Prayer' chorus, and it solves the horror of having to answer the phone while being trapped in a blanket. I think we have to do a fashion story based around this winter trend.
I am sad to say that this is the second and last trade of The Vinyl Underground. Apparently, comics readers didn't like it as much as I did, since it was canceled after twelve issues. Still, you can scoop up collection one, Watching the Detectives, as well as this current one, Pretty Dead Things, and enjoy the occult crimefighting rock'n'roll goodness for a time, anyway. The book reads like a freakier CSI, with each character a different part of the team.
