Taking a book club and turning it into an all-girl, reading-inspired, song-fest? What will they think of next? Once I peeped these deets below on nonsense nyc , I was hooked (though it would be cool if they added some women writers to the mix in 2009, doncha think?): Bushwick Book Club - Tuesday, Jan 6 Unparalleled songwriting nerdery. Local songwriters Phoebe Kreutz, Chloe Matheou, Liv Carrow, and Susan Hwang perform songs inspired by, and based on, Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions.
A while back, I posted about the weird youtube/FOC mashup phenom of people (mostly ladies) videotaping themselves lip-sychning to various Flight of the Conchords songs. Well, seems like the Conchs themselves have gotten wind of this weirdness, and so now HBO is running a Flight of the Conchords Lip Synch contest on their site , in order to promote the new season. They've already posted a few entries; I'm not sure if these are real or faked as examples for further submissions, but anyway, they are fun to watch, and make me so excited for the new season I could almost scream.

Last week on my days off I made it uptown to the MOMA and finally got around to seeing Pipilotti Rist's installation 'Pour Your Body Out'. I had huge hopes for it after seeing clips of it and pictures online weeks before.
Five Points Band Times is hard. Fun is not. If you're in NYC Monday night, pack up your sins and unburden yourself at 'Gutless and Guilty' , a night of music and comedy happening at Santos Party House! The night will include: Bread and Puppet Theater's production of 'Dirt Cheap Opera', a bawdy, 45 minute adaptation of the famous Brecht/Weill 'Three Penny Opera' - a story of the gangster Mac the Knife and his brand new wife Polly newly mixed and freshly rebaked.
Rachida Dati. Photo: Pierre-Philippe, Getty Images Simone de Beauvoir would be proud. Not only does France have a female foreign minister, but she's 43, Muslim, unmarried, and recently gave birth while refusing to name the father of her child (While the Uk Telegraph reports 'Possible candidates include a French millionaire and hotel and casino baron, and the former prime minister of another European country,' I smell sperm bank and IVF.
