EAGLE AND TALON

BY Web Intern in General

Thracian, the new album from Eagle and Talon, is here! It was worth the wait. Check it now on itunes, or at your local record store on the October 23rd. My favorite L.A. lady rockers will play at Public Assembly in Brooklyn on the 21st. I can't wait to dance like the angry teenager I am ... Read More
Now in it's 9th year, the Bicycle Film Festival is out to prove that peddle pushing isn't just a passing trend. Much like the number of two-wheelers seen on the street, it's becoming unstoppable. You don't have to be a hardcore biker babe to enjoy the show, either: those of us who prefer to take a joyride on our cruisers can get in tandem with cycle-centric cinema. Currently in Paris, the wheels-on-reels tour will make stops in Auckland, Denver, Sydney, Tokyo, ... Read More
It's a well-documented fact that Etsy is awesome -- you can buy vintage belt buckles, handmade jewelry, and pretty much anything you can think of, really, all without leaving the comfort of wherever you prefer to Internet shop. But 'pretty much anything you can think of' also includes 'things you would never imagine someone was trying to sell.' Thanks to the site Regretsy, you can now see all of these products in their crazy glory. Looking for a Frida Kahlo uterus ... Read More
  Ever since I caught sight of Keep's kicks, I've been borderline obsessed with boat shoes.  My tootsies just don't feel right without them (seriously, I have 6 pairs, it's kind of sad).  They're like Vans slip-ons, except way cuter.  Now Keep is satisfying my snack attack with pretzel-patterned sneakers!  Don't they look yummy? Never heard of Keep?  The line was started by designers Una Kim and Margot Jacobs in 2006.  The ... Read More
If there was a book that isn't Sandman more deserving of oversized, supersaturated Absolute edition, Promethea is it. It's a sometimes-skipping, sometimes-running, sometimes-strolling journey through a dream world as wild and beautiful as Neil Gaiman's but ruled by a warrior-queen who's everything Wonder Woman ought to be. Promethea is a living story, and she's just taken over a new human host. The previous incarnations, like something out of Joseph Campbell, have ... Read More
The new issue of VICE is totally 90's dude, literally. Those kooky kids decided to make a high concept 'fake 1994' issue that is pretty cool. This is like a rare issue of INdex or something, with an interview with our pal Daisy Von Furth (X-Girl) by one of my fave writers, Amy Kellner, to Christina Kelly's love letter to My So Called Life, and Bob Nickas' Pavement interview! I have not seen the actual issue yet, and I don't know if these are real or imagined ... Read More
Our favorite French mademoiselle (and former BUST cover girl) Charlotte Gainsbourg has been making a splash the past few weeks in the new Lars Von Trier film Antichrist, and now she's back with the new single 'IRM' from her forthcoming album of the same name. The album, produced by our favorite Scientologist Beck, drops next February. Head on over to her website for a free download of the title track, and look for the first official single 'Heaven Can Wait' soon! ... Read More
Because now it actually is Friday, and this video is HILARIOUS. video courtesy YouTube.com ... Read More
Will Sarah Palin ever stop being a punchline? Let's hope not. Wonkette had a contest to create Blingees of her new book cover, and the results are pretty awesome. I've posted my personal favorite here -- old Sarah looks good in shutter shades. Maybe she should have worn those during the campaign to improve her appeal with the 'young voters.'

Cute? Yes. That's obvious. But the best word to describe Slingshot Dakota goes deeper than what's on the surface: it's passionate. Passionate about doing what they love. Passionate about supporting their friends. Passionate about making a difference. Get the idea? Sure, Slingshot can easily hook you in with their poppy tunes and adorableness. But there's so much more behind the blast of sound created by an amped up Yamaha keyboard, a deafeningly loud drum set, ... Read More
