What happens when you team up punk-rock legend Iggy Pop and surf-pop darling Bethany Cosentino? You get a rockin’ track that’s a little gritty, a little dreamy, and utterly infectious. The forefather of punk rock and Best Coast front woman were approached by HBO’s True Blood to collaborate on a song for an upcoming episode and each really dug the idea.  Pop and Cosentino, both self-proclaimed fans of the show, recently recorded ...

Whenever someone tells me they can't wait to go to Amsterdam so they can visit the Red Light District and go to a "Coffee Shop," where marijuana is sold legally, I want to say to them, "How about I buy you a bag of marijuana and a red light bulb and you can go enjoy that somewhere, and you give me your plane tickets? Because I actually want to see AMSTERDAM!"I've been to Amsterdam many times and never once stepped foot inside a Coffee Shop. Amsterdam to me is ... Read More
If you're like us, you watched the season 5 premiere of Mad Men last nite. And, if you're like us, you can't get the song "Zooby zooby zoo" out of your head today. The song, sung and danced to in an excruciatingly embarrassing performance by Don Draper's Canadian wife, Meg, had us wondering two t hings: in what weird alien language does "zooby zooby zoo" mean "I love you?" And, WHAT IS THAT SONG? Turns out the title is actually "Zou Bisou Bisou," which in Canadian ... Read More
Congratulations to our boyfriend Bret McKenzie, who was recently nominated for an Academy Award for his song for the Muppets movie, "Man or Muppet." McKenzie, who you all of course remember as one-half of the comedy duo, "Flight of the Conchords," can consider himself especially honored this year, as it's the first time that only 2 songs are competing for Best Original Song (none of the other songs scored high enough in the fancy Oscars rating system to even be ...

After reading a comment posted by a "shellylovelace" on a YouTube video that suspiciously sounded like our old friend Courtney Love, I followed the link back to discover internetz GOLD: Courtney's own YouTube Channel. With categories including "Guilty Pleasures" -- where we discover that Courtney enjoys watching old Go Gos videos, and the war between Joan Rivers and Chelsea Handler on Howard Stern--to "Freak Assed Shit"--which includes videos of her mother, Linda ...

Please put on a helmet before watching this video, because your head is in danger of exploding. Also, this is not so much a watching video as it is a listening video. Okay, ready? Dig this adorabuhls dormouse. He's hibernating so hard right now that he doesn't even wake up when being held in someone's hand. And he's just snoring the day away. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
Of all the "perfect home" bloggers out there on the internet, I think I like Yvestown.com  the best. This Belgium-based blogger lives in an old house that she is in the process of renovating and redecorating, and her style is fresh and clean but also cozy and sweet, a combination that I really love. And homegirl does a lot with pink. The way she uses it it always looks inviting, never cloying; girly but not Barbie. (all images above photographed by Yvonne ... Read More
Last week, Entertainment Weekly released a comedy-centric issue, and used Melissa McCarthy as their cover girl with the headline "The New Queen of Comedy."McCarthy's coronation isn't all that surprising to her adoring fans, given the comedienne's Emmy-winning performance in Mike & Molly, as well as her part in Bridesmaids's box office success.  However, we can't deny the true and unexpected significance of McCarthy's new recognition, and what it all ...

Just when I think I can't love Tina Fey any more than I already do, she up and goes and does something to make me love her even harder. In this case, she hosts a 2-hour NPR special called "The Hidden World of Girls." It is so good that I really wish she could have her own series, like a female Ira Glass. Unfortunately, I don't think NPR gives anyone their own show unless they have two things: a shween and a speech impediment. But enough about that. Listen to the ... Read More
While Laurie is already on the West Coast (she had a wedding there this weekend), I am just starting my trip to our first stop: Seattle. I'm travelling cross country by train, which I've been doing pretty frequently for the past 12 years -- in fact, the very first time I ever did was for the book tour for the first BUST book, back in 1999. Anyway, the first part of this 3-day journey is an overnite train trip from NYC to Chicago -- all of Amtrak's trains that go to ... Read More
