Palm Pictures just announced they will be releasing "Patti Smith: Dream of Life," a documentary about the ever awesome performer by first time film maker, Steven Sebring in September. The film is narrated by Smith herself through her spoken word, lyrics, and performances. Joining Smith in the film's performances are Phillip Glass and Sam Sheppard - who himself has been recently performing a number of NYC shows...most of them free - FYI sidenote. If you live in New York and/or are just a hardcore Patti fan, the flick will be screening at the Film Forum August 6th - the 19th.

I’ve watched Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp For Girls grow and kick butt since their first session in 2001 teaching girls ages 8-18 how to rock hard, but living on the east coast I could only dreamily wish of wailing on a guitar in Portland, Oregon with the rest of them. Now the latest venture of the Camp is The Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp For Girls book. Chronicle Books is celebrating this rocking book by announcing the Girls Fender® Guitar Giveaway!  Heres the deal: Write to webmaster@chroniclebooks.

Our favorite busty gal was sticking up for Britney and Lindsay at her concert in Los Angels last night, in a show of solidarity for the tabloid twosome,  Parton was quoted as saying,  “Poor little Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. Ain't it awful? If those little girls slept with as many men as they say in the tabloids, why their little butts would have more fingerprints than the FBI!" and "I kinda feel sorry for them. We should give those two a break." I kind of agree with her. Source: http://imnotobsessed.

I'm all shook up over this article on CNN.com proclaiming "Stay-At-Home-Wives" (as in, married women with no kids who just, like, you know, stay at home) the new must-have domestic accessories. Here's a choice little nugget: "Daniel Buccino, a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine clinical social worker and psychotherapist, says stay-at-home wives are the latest 'status symbols.'" "'It says, 'We make enough money that we both don't need to work outside the home,'" he says.

I recently stumbled upon this adorable site, All Things Cupcake. Updated daily, it's a blog that features any and everything to do with...CUPCAKES! From hard to find cupcake related items, to recipes, and more, All Things Cupcake is sure to make your mouth water and come back for seconds and thirds. I can't stop obsessing over these vegan chocolate orange cupcakes...must...get...recipe.

I know it's not nice to make fun of old people, lord knows we're all gonna be there sooner than we like to admit, but I feel the need to call out Axl here. Corn rows? cmon. The bicycle shorts were bad enough in 1989,  but you are white. Stop this silliness. Oh, and apparently there is a partially leaked new Guns and Roses album floating around, with only the one original member who has not been kicked out yet, Axl Rose himself. Read all about it here on Blurt.

PSYCHE! I loved it. Anyone else see it on Imax? During the opening shot, when they show that huge  drop view, I kind of almost threw up it was that realistic looking. Even the Imax popcorn was intense. When  you eat it, it feels like you're IN the kernal. Okay, slight exaggeration. But for anyone else (everyone) who also loved Dark Knight, you should watch this deleted scene that features one of my very favorite comedians, Aziz Ansari...

Tori Amos and comics came into my life at the same time, way back in the early 90s. I had a cool older friend that had all the best stuff, and one day she came into school with a copy of Death: The High Cost of Living, and I thought it was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen. Had to have it. My friend turned me on to Tori too, and I fell in love. And then someone told me that Tori was the basis for Delirium in the Sandman “Brief Lives” collection (a story since debunked), which I bought...and thus began the cycle of dependency that is my comics addiction.

Lots of clothing brands have taken to sponsoring athletes to get their brand name out there, but Quiksilver's got a different take on the same idea. SiteLA is a “communal work and exhibition space” in Silver Lake, California, where six women act as “visionaries in residence” and work on their varying projects during a year-long stay in the house.
