Absolutely Strange

BY Laurie in General

It seems we've done it again. Taken a British comedy classic and Americanized it (The Office, Posh and David Beckham) This time we set our target on the British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous (or Ab Fab if you are a real fan). If you have not seen this show, please watch it right now.... but only if you are a fan of immature, chain-smoking, alcoholic, fashion-obsessed, fame-hungry, middle-aged ladies who live in London. I was concerned the first time I heard about ... Read More
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 ... Read More

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 ... Read More
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 hot ... Read More
This was one of my favorite movies growing up, I even remember the soft white light bulb commercials that came on when she was falling down the hole.

Check it:  Start watching the entire thing after the ... Read More

Tonight my girl Nicola, (of Droopy Knickers fame), and I went to Comix to see our favorite Jersey mom impersonator and BUST Boy du Jour John Roberts. I was totally psyched when she told me he was performing, but when I found out that Margaret Cho was on the bill as well, I kind of freaked out. So we get to the show, totally amped, and who jumps on stage to start the set? None other than Flight of the Conchords darling, Kristen Schall! She was beyond adorable ... Read More

Blu Blockers

BY Laurie in General

All of this Snuggie talk reminds me of one of the greatest commercial response raps ever, the one here for BluBlockers. If you spent any time in the 80's watching late night TV, you'll probably remember BluBlockers, they were really big unisex sunglasses that were supposed to block out the sun in some miraculous way, sadly I do not own a pair. They really should bring them back, I think they would do very well with the williamsburg crowd. Anyway this dude MC Dr. ... Read More
