       OK, but I get alot of mail everyday, some of it fun (cds, photography and illustration promos) some not so fun (bills!) and every now and then some random cool shit that I just have to share. Today I recieved a hand made linocut poster and silkscreened neckerchef (or neckerchin as debbie likes to call em) from a gal named Tamara, her company is called No Guts No Glory and she is based in Brooklyn.

Bicycle fever has hit NYC this summer, and no one should be left out! Recycle-A-Bike has started a bike club for kids ages 10-15, but anyone else is welcome as well. The Ride Club includes workshops on basic bike mechanics, riding skills, and how to safely ride in city traffic. Dates that they'll be meeting on include: July 11, July 25, August 8, August 15, and August 22nd at 10 A.M. at 46-01 5th Street-- their Long Island City space in Queens.For more information, check out http://www.Recycleabicycle.

So I'm a giant comic geek, but I despair over the lack of comics aimed at the ladies. There's plenty out there that I love, still, but it makes me happy to see that DC Comics has started an entire girl-centric line, Minx. The newest Minx book is The New York Four, by Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly, who teamed up before this on the superb Local, which is also amazing and girl-friendly. The New York Four is the story of four NYU students finding their way around the big city on their own, dealing with the usual things--boys, family drama, and their friendships with each other.

Thanks Adam for all the fun! Edit! So the embedded is turned off on the video, too much fun I guess. So just go here to watch. it.

  Check out this sweet summer sale at Locher's online! Everything is 20 percent off until July 22 (just type in "LOVERBOY" at the checkout).This gives you the best excuse to grab one of their embroidered tops, like this powder blue piece with a heart and teeny birds tying ribbons around the words "best piece of ass in town" delicately sewn in the top left. They are absolutely daaaahling and slightly perverse: the ultimate combination.

  By no means do I consider myself a karaoke queen. But with the help of Hit Me with Your Best Shot: The Ultimate Guide to Karaoke Domination, I just might get there. Raina Lee (whoyou may know as the editor of super awes video game zine 1-Up) offers hilariously invaluable tips about creating your perfect set list, working the stage, and how to throw your own karaoke rager. So, pick it up and blow your friends away the next time you belt out Barracuda, or whatever your signature song may be.

The Pack A.D. is a Molotov cocktail mixture of every band you most likely already like. Canucks, Becky Black and Maya Miller play a mean blues on debut album Tintype (Mint) while at the same time fit comfortably within the 'new' revival of garage rock duos. Think The White Stripes only with two awesome ladies instead of just one meeting ...Shannon Curfman maybe? Black's voice is smoky yet bluesy, her influences off the band’s myspace include Billie Holiday and Janis Joplin among others, but there's no real mistaking who she emulates more.

Bettie  B. Goode Attention air metal heads the Air Guitar Championships are underway! The US competition kicked off on June 3rd In New York at Bowery Ballroom and was sold out there are only a couple more battles left. The first ever Brooklyn Regional is July 9th at Williamsburg Music Hall! Come support my girl Leah, she's going under the name Hyst-air-ia! That is her laying low, have you ever seen someone that high on air? You can watch some of the magic here. Last year I went to show my love and the ladies are really underrepresented in the highly competitive world of air guitar.

A while back I claimed that I was going to start posting a weekly (maybe daily..yeah right!) fashion-forward style blogger of the moment. Well, perhaps some of you have noticed that i posted once and then our busy deadline claimed my life and those posts were never again seen. Ooopsydoops. Now that I have time to breath and continue said post...here is the second installment:  Name: Jen   Blog or Website: www.livejournal.

I am loving the new line from Among Strangers clothing--it looks like what I'd want to wear on a really classy date with Ziggy Stardust. Sleek black dresses and space-age shoulder flaps, and a superhot skirt with lightning bolts on it--all equal parts glam rock and film noir. And they are having a trunk show at Helianthus, at 552 La Guardia Place on Thursday, July 10th. That's this Thursday! There will be two cocktail receptions, one from noon to 2 PM and one from 6 to 8 PM.
