If you're a huge fan of Tegan and Sara like myself, you're most likely patiently awaiting their new record (only have until Oct. 27!) and the lengthy tour that is sure to follow. In the meantime, you can speculate how cute their new trio of books, On, It, At, is going to be and put aside money for the pre-sale order (which begins Sept. 28). The trio of books chronicles different time periods over the course of a year in the lives of two of my favorite ladies. Read More
I'm sure you all know by now but Patrick Swayze, 57, passed away last night after his 20-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Now, I am beyond bummed about this.

That's right! Isabella Rossellini's short-short film series about the love lives of earth's most beloved and bizarre creatures returns!

MTV gets a lot of grief about losing it's music video mojo, but after last night's debacle of a Video Music Awards, rejecting the music world doesn't seem like a bad idea. At least in the interest of sanity. By now the world knows about Kanye's chumpy upstaging of dixie teen-queen Taylor Swift; moments after (adorably overwhelmed) Swift scooped up her first Moonman for Best Female Video, Kanye West nabbed the mic to praise Beyonce, who Swift beat out for the award. His 'chivalry' was met by a chorus of boos, while poor Taylor stood motionless in the unfortunate surreality of the moment. Read More
