This past week, I got to do one of the most fun things ever: Teach Mo Rocca to knit. Mo got himself into some hot water with the knitting community a few weeks ago (yes, there is such a thing as a 'knitting community,') when he made the horrifying 'joke' on NPR's Wait Wait..Don't Tell Me that 'I hate handknit sweaters. Handknit sweaters are always itchy.' The remark caused an uproar on knitting blogs and community sites, and Mo heard all about it....

Jack White, check. Alison Mosshart (Kills), check. the guy w the glasses (Jack Lawrence) from Raconteurs, Check. Someone (Dean Fertita) from Queens of the Stoneage, check.  Ok, put them all together and you get The Dead Weather, and judging from the two songs I've heard, this is going to be very, very good. They played a show last night at the opening of Jack Whites new Third Man Records building in downtown Nashville, and according to the press release, the invitations were exchanged...

How devastatingly cute is M.I.A.'s little boy?! He's just one month old today and already stealing hearts. Happy birthday, little playa!  ...

Three of my favorite artists (Caroline, Saelee, and Seonna) have joined forces for a show, I Know What You're Thinking, that opens next week in New York. Knowing the work these ladies do, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a triple threat of awesomeness. See more of their work after the jump. Caroline Hwang     Saelee Oh      Seonna Hong      ...

Everyone has been all over the Chris Brown-Rihanna beating controversy (c'mon, we've all seen the TMZ photo of her face post-beating by now...) that the Big-O has stepped in, and you KNOW it's somethin' serious when Oprah lays it down to ya. (Let's not forgot how she invited author James Frey back just to call him out for lying to her face on her show!) I mean, who wasn't shocked to see Rihanna and Chris Brown back together after what seemed like a...

This is the movie that Twilight should have been. Let the Right One In tells the love story between a shy 12-year-old blonde-haired, blue-eyed boy and his new neighbor who has a strange dietary restriction (she is a vampire). I'm rarely moved to tears at the end of movies these days, but by the end of this film I was crying as if I had seen The Lion King for the first time. It's full of cruelty, loneliness, love and redemption--the swimming pool scene...

I don't like to brag, but we won another Folio award for our fantastic and formidable Holiday Craftacular!!

We'd like to thank all the amazing vendors and shoppers that make the Craftaculars so fun, as well as all the behind the scenes people like Susan, Maggie and our amazing staff and interns that work like...

            Yeah, you've heard their ridiculously catchy tune 'Bruises' on that iPod commercial but seriously, this Brooklyn-based trio is so much more than that. I caught their show at the Williamsburg Music Hall awhile back when they opened for Yeasayer (LOVE!) and it says a lot when the first band draws as big a crowd as the headliner. Go catch them on their new tour that kicks off this week (click here for dates), especially to see keyboardist/vocalist Caroline Polachek in...
