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.
    Me and a couple of my best-ies are starting a porn mag for ladies that love dicks called...drum roll please, LigerBeat! We are throwing a benefit party this Sat in Brooklyn. It'll be fire! Cheap beer, smoking dance floor, zine pre-order (its a limited run so you wanna get on the list!), some baked goods, and plenty of dick flick opportunities.
The new Showtime series , The United States of Tara, launches in a few weeks, and it looks like everything we could have hoped for, and more. Since it stars Toni Colette and is written by Diablo Cody, we've been expecting a feminist feast along the lines of a Muriel's Wedding/Juno mashup, and it looks like the ladies have delivered something even better. A women's studies dissertation waiting to happen, this show deals with a mid-western mama with 3 personalities: a man, a sexpot teen, and a June Cleaver-esque perfect housewife type.
I have been spreading my love of The Room ever since Colleen Kane introduced it to me about 3 years ago. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is possibly the worst movie of all time. I get really excited when it gets mentioned in anything. I almost blasted a shit when Debbie told me that they had a story on the cult phenomenon in Entertainment Weekly a couple weeks ago. Apparently David Cross and Paul Rudd are both big Tommy Wiseau fans too. If you live in LA you can catch one of the midnight screenings at Laemmle's Sunset 5, where fans get all Rocky Horror over this cult hit.
  Family can be a great source of love, comfort, and at times, a splitting migraine. In the right hands, they can also make great comedic material. Take actor and model Lauren LoGiudice.
I love this print by Caroline Hwang and it just went up for sale at Tiny Showcase. Not only is it a mere $20 (even I can afford that), but also the proceeds go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, helping to save boobies everywhere.
Looks like Brody Dalle has a new band, and so far, me likey very much. While I was never much a fan of the Distillers mall punk sound, I love the direction Spinnerette is taking. With a video by the amazing Liam Lynch , and a sound that seems very influenced by her baby daddy's band, Queens of the Stone Age, I have a feeling this girl could quite possibly kick some much needed life into the rock scene. With her gorgeous looks and Joan Jett snarl, girl's got an attitude.
Combine gender-bending therapists, mutinous nuthouse patients and toss in wrestling lesbians for good measure and you'll get Waiting For the Show: a madcap, what-the-frack new comedic play by Theresa Diamond. Psych ward inmates Nina and Anne, daily rehearse their fire-eating, snake handling, anti-abortion variety show as Maria from 'The Sound of Music' and former el presidente George Washington, which is periodically interrupted with Nina's trips to the Treatment Room. When mongo bonkers scientists Dr.
Don't have enough money to buy new clothes? Why not...shop in your own closet!
