I can't decide if this Steve Buscemi dress  by Black Milk is ridiculous or awesome..or ridiculously awesome. I happen to think Steve Buscemi is amazing. He's hilarious in a weird sort of way and I kind of find him secretly attractive in GhostWorld (..Right?!..No? Am I alone here?), but do I want to wear his face on my boobs? I don't know about that..  Buy one here if you dare and happen to have an extra $100 lying around. And just for kicks, here's the hilariously creepy tumblr, Chicks With Steve Buscemeyes, that's gotten quite popular lately.

“Our tagline on our website is ‘You know...that black girl who does improv’ because I imagine that's how people in the improv community would try to describe us,” Sasheer Zamata of Doppelganger told me. “There was a time when there were so few black girls around, [but now] there are many more black girls doing improv and the community is getting much more diverse.” Zamata is one third of improv team Doppelganger, along with Nicole Byer and Keisha Zollar.

I like to complain that there is simply not enough new RAWK in the world these days, everything’s all wimpy electronic blips and bleeps, or slow, mellow folky beard rock – which is all fine and good, but sometimes you really just need an old fashioned, ass-kicking power pop rock record! So I was happy to hear about Kentucky based Sleeper Agent, who play fast, catchy and hard.

My favorite emails from my mom are the ones where she responds to something I wrote by sending me an email that contains no signature, no “Dear Grace” but just “hahahahahhahhahahahahhaa.” Or I’ll send her a thoughtful, three-paragraph letter in which I pose several questions to her, respond to her previous emails questions and maybe even throw in a few links, and she writes back, “OK.” Jessica Grose and Doree Shafrir started a website collecting these gems of mother-to-child communication.

Recently featured on The Ones 2 Watch, check out some cosmic inspired work by one of my favorite up and coming photographers, Ignacio Torres. His most recent project, Stellar, uses a similar gif format to blogger Jamie Beck's lovely cinemagraphs, but while her photos create a more realistic movement and tone, Torres’ work evokes a different kind of magically whimsical quality that instantly catches your eye.   He explains Stellar by stating on his website that, “The project began from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a stars death.

In the summer of 2009 Diane Schuler drove for two miles on the wrong side of the Taconic State Parkway, and crashed into an oncoming SUV, killing herself and seven others, including one of her children and three of her nieces. At the time of the accident, Diane was found to have a blood-alcohol content of .19% , more than double the legal limit, and a high level of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. The only survivor is Schuler’s five-year-old son, who is left with oculomotor nerve palsy after the accident. When asked about what happened, he says, “Mommy’s head hurt.

When I hear “tape art”, I often think of duct tape dresses or hall decorations in college dorms. If I heard that someone was pushing to have “tape art” in a gallery space, I would most likely question the artist’s intent and skill level. But the sophistication and quirkiness of Kayt Hester’s masking tape pieces make me rethink what goes on a canvas, let alone the walls of a gallery show.Using ripped up bits of ordinary black masking tape on a blank canvas, Hester creates intimate portraits of friends and icons such as Jackie Kennedy.

A new preschool in Stockholm named Egalia, the Swedish word for equality, has declared its purpose “to free children from social expectations based on their sex.” So how do you create a genderless environment? With a team of teachers/administrators who are passionate about gender equality, they’ve created some guidelines. First, they don’t reinforce gender through language; all of the students at the school are either referred to by their names, “friends,” or as “hen,” a genderless Finnish pronoun.

Despite the fact that “Friday” was recently pulled off of YouTube, the “fun, fun, fun, fun” isn’t over for Rebecca Black fans.  Black has announced that she will be releasing a new single and video, “My Moment,” on Monday, July 18th. The video will be available at 8pm Pacific time on Black’s YouTube Channel, and the single will be available for purchase on iTunes the following day. "My Moment" was written by Brandon "Blue" Hamilton and Quinton Tolbert and produced by Charlton Pettus.

Stefanie Drootin has played in more bands than you or I could count on two hands; most recently duo Big Harp with husband Chris Senseney. But now she is tacking on a new title: executive director and founder of Omaha Girls Rock! camp, which makes its weeklong debut Monday, July 11. According to a recent interview with Lazy-i, Drootin considers herself lucky to have “had the confidence to be able to deal with a lot of the stuff that goes along with being a girl in a band.” Her first sense of courage came from her mom as Drootin was growing up. “My mom could do everything.
