Brooklyn Indie Market

BY Web Intern in General

Are you ready to get your Amelia Earhart on? Put away those Ray Ban aviators and get some authentic aviator goggles? Then, lace up your Victorian boots. Time to trim beards or take on corsets. This Saturday, October 24th, Brooklyn Indie Market presents Steampunk II . For one day, Carroll Gardens won't belong to Moms with strollers. The only handlebars will be carefully groomed mustaches. From 11-7 PM, the neighborhood will be a playground of combat boots, top hats, hoop skirts, weathered vests, military hats, stop watches and more. Don't miss the Steampunk fashion show at 4 PM.

Current internet fads can be lumped into a handful of categories: 1) awkward people with terrible taste 2) awkward animals with terrible grammar 3) gorgeous nobodies with awesome taste 4) depressing life confessions (aka: things you regret but not nearly as much as you should regret posting them to the internet) 5) Kanye 6) food Inane? Maybe. But the internet has no morals. The internet will not scold you for spending 3 hours LOLing at cats in clothes. The internet does not tut-tut procrastination in favor of snooping art-fart hipster secrets. Read More
The Raveonettes are one of those bands I've been listening to on and off since high school -- I was always kind of into them, but never jazzed enough to sing their praises on the Internet. Cut to their concert Sunday night at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. I take it all back, Raveonettes. Why didn't I realize how awesome you were before? The Black Angels got things off to a trippy start with their heavily distorted psychedelic tunes. And they were LOUD -- I'm pretty sure the opening chords of 'Science Killer' actually rattled the buttons on my jacket. Read More
Jemina Pearl, of Be Your Own Pet buzz, is out with a new single titled, 'I Hate People' featuring Iggy Pop. I just saw the diner-inspired video (with Thurston Moore!) and I must say, I find the campy bits featuring old pics of Mr. Pop quite cute. Definitely check it out below. Read More
Apparently, Oprah received some flak for not having Sarah Palin on her show during the presidential election. Oprah states that Palin's team never asked for her to be on the show and besides, why should they have? They probably knew like the rest of us that lady O was a huge Obama supporter from the start. Anyhoo, Oprah will feature Ms. Palin on Nov. 16th, the day before Going Rogue: An American Life, lands in bookstores. If you're like me, you could care less about the book but want to see what the hell Palin has to say now. Read More
