Spring is in the air, which means so is prom season. In celebration, a few designers and models have released prom photos of themselves from back in the day. Amongst the adorableness is Betsey Johnson who, turns out, was prom queen in the frilliest, puffiest, pinkest dress imaginable. This picture just makes me so happy because, her hair might be kookier, but really not much has changed. Would you expect any less from Betsey?   [source: Teen Vogue. Read More
You might be surprised to know that one of the best street style blogs around doesn’t chronicle the style of models or fashion editors, but, in fact, the style of senior citizens! While some street stylers favor young, model-esque bloggers who basically look good in a potato sack, Advanced Style documents the colorfully chic over 60 crowd. Since 2008, this blog has offered "proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age."  When it comes to style, many senior citizens have a "no fear" attitude that you've just got to admire.

This clip from the forthcoming Hot Sauce Committee is hilarious! When I heard there was a new Beastie's video, I thought "it would be cool if they had actors playing them, like that Jon Spencer video way back in the day," and guess what?  That's exactly what they did, starring Will Farrell, Jack Black, Elijah Wood (doing a spot on Ad-Rock!), John C. Reilly (Come to think of it, John C. Reilly was in that Blues Explosion video too! ),  Danny McBride and Seth Rogan to name a few.  PS. Read More

Blow Up Doll Chic

BY Eileen Milman in Style

April Showers getting you down? Brighten up your spring, by wearing one of Dutch artist's, Sander Reijgers, new hoodies made from recycled sex toys! Using patches of rubber, from what seems to be mainly from blow up dolls, these hoodies are seriously weird. Seeing the dolls gaping mouths hanging out of the back of a hood is mildly disturbing, but also strangely, pop art like.  The entire effect is very colorful, and pretty silly. I could see some sneaker-heads rocking these hoodies with some brightly colored kicks. Read More
Today a very special box of books came into our office. We’ve been waiting very patiently for Tina Fey’s new book, Bossypants, and man are we stoked and honored to be mentioned on its pages! I plan on reading the entire book immediately but so far, I’ve laughed out loud a few times at the random pages I’ve perused. A long time ago (2004), before Tina was the media mogul she is now, we put her on our cover, and we’ve always remembered the shoot and time spent with her fondly. Read More

Holy Ghost! @ Terminal 5

BY Jen Hazen in Music

  They're young. They're super cute. And they're coming to a dance floor near you. Actually, Holy Ghost! is probably on the verge of taking over every club's sound system around the globe. Okay, not every club, but tons of them. I checked out the five-piece Brooklyn-based band Saturday night at Terminal 5, wondering how their infectious club beats would translate to a live stage performance. All I can say is: Holy shit! Holy Ghost! is one of my fave bands right now.   I'm not a huge fan of club music, but these tracks transcend all of that. Read More
At this point, it’s pretty common knowledge that the average woman only earns 77 cents to their male counterpart's dollar. Translated to a whopping $10,622 less a year, and the gap is even more substantial when both gender and race are factored in together. Introduced in January of 2009, the Paycheck Fairness Act was passed in the House on January 9, 2009, but was unfortunately defeated in the Senate, 58-41, on November 17, 2010.  So let's try this again!!! We need to fully close the wage gap and end wage discrimination forever. Read More
As blue strobe lights flashed and the loud speakers played thrash music from an anonymous metal band, The Mountain Goats stepped onto the stage for their second of three sold out shows at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. For the uninitiated, this incongruous introduction might prove alarming, but veteran fans will know that the band have made a tradition of introducing themselves in this ostentatious way. This hyperliterate indie rock band—which occasionally adds and subtracts members from many locales—centers around California-born vocalist/guitarist John Darnielle. Read More
