If you enjoyed Sex and the City 2  for the friendship-centric, over-the-top fantasy romp that it was, then think of Eat Pray Love (opening today) as Sex’s more bookish, solitary, and endearing kid sister. This film adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert’s best-selling post-divorce travel memoir, starring Julia Roberts as Gilbert, has equally eye-popping exotic locales (namely Italy, India, and Indonesia), sumptuous natural scenery, and decadent attention to detail.

Coming across new tracks by Andre 3000 is basically like finding a grocery bag full of money. He is such an elusive character, traipsing around the Deep South like he owns the place...i mean, he kind-of does.  His music is always so fresh and raw, and he makes no apologies for his bona fide rhymes.  Yesterday Limelight Exclusives dropped their new mixed tape featuring a new track by the ATLien, "I Do."  This track is super chill-  Andre lays his feelings on the line to his lady, and confesses how he wants to start a family with her.

BUST-y lady, and our lovely managing editor, Emily Rems appeared as a guest this morning on the NPR show "The Takeaway" to discuss the death of the "macho man" in present day cinema. Today, two very different movies are being released in theaters nationally - "Eat, Pray, Love" and "The Expendables." The question at hand here is, when a movie is so crammed with tried and true, and stereotypically "strong" actors, and all of those actors happen to be over forty, does this predict the death of "the macho man?" The Takeaway seems to think so, or at least, an evolution into something different.

greetings again from copenhagen! so these past few days I have been photographing outside near Copenhagen City Hall, where Fashion week is being held. Essentially, the city of Copenhagen has planned all of these events in association with Fashion Week. This morning I went to a store opening with bubbles (b/c nothing is more awesome than playing with bubbles and buying Japanese clothes- nothing) and it had a great sale b/c of Fashion Week.

Feeling down cause you haven't made any plans for the weekend yet? Check out these happenings in the NYC area and make your weekend a little better. Friday (the 13!) If you're not doing your own spooky stuff, get over to Brooklyn to see some fine ladies on bikes- Join the Babes On Bikes for their (sure to be awesome) first burlesque show at The Trailer Park (304 Meserole St.) Starts at 10pm. Get there at 8 for a metal show with bands Big Gunz, Spicoli and Jarvis Earnshaw. 3$ for each show.

Loving this duo from Melbourne Australia, Super Wild Horses. You may recall Everett True wrote about them in the magazine last winter. Amy and Hayley (they keep it mysterious- no last names!) play fuzzed out garage-y, primitive pop rock, and as you can see from this video for Golden Town, they are adorable! Their first full length, Fifteen, will be released next week on HoZac records here in the US. If you like bands like The Breeders, Vivian Girls, etc, (and really, who doesn't? You should check them out. Enjoy! [video:http://www.youtube.

Betsey Johnson celebrated her 68th birthday last night at her boutique in Soho, and arrived in style on a hot pink bike! Don't you just love her? She's a fashion icon that got her start in the 60's with the Warhol set and has been churning out fun, ultra-girly fashions ever since. She is definitely one of our top 10, all time favorite ladies- Happy Birthday Betsey! Check out Papermag.com for more fab pics of the party. Photo by Caroline Torem Craig via Papermag.

I love Arcade Fire. And while I was one click away from buying my ticket to their U.S record release show for The Suburbs last week at Madison Square Garden, I went against my instinct and bought a bus ticket out of town instead. But it worked out in my favor regardless. Turns out director Terry Gilliam livecasted the entire show on YouTube for everyone who missed it. But the recording of the show is more than just a video recording, Gilliam seemed to layer images over one another to capture the breadth of the band as well as the streaming images in the background.

In this second installment of imagined scenarios there is no actual food on the table. The Madame of the house has called an emergency meeting. "He is doing WHAT? Running for my old job as mayor of Wasilla? On a reality TV show?" Sarah fumes. "How could you not know this? Did he not mention it while you were together?" "Mom, gaah. D'uh. You know we weren't together together. That was just for the paycheck from People. I can't live on what I make at that medical center. The whole thing was your idea. I bet he got the idea from the fact that you're doing that Alaska show for Discovery.

     It’s been a long scorcher of a summer and most of our brains have melted into a gelatinous goop that in just a few weeks we will be scraping off of the sizzling pavement to revive them for fall’s flutter. What better a way to send off the summer’s heat, and begin the quest for new, hopefully more functional, brains than a good old-fashioned game of Capture the Flag, zombie-style! This Saturday in NYC, August 14th NYCentric and Chaos Brigade will be hosting an entire day of blood, guts and all-around good times on historic Governors Island.
