Mmmmmmm Ward.

BY Lisa in General

I've always been a fan of this Portland, OR, based crooner's scratchy voice and rockin' piano/guitar skills, so getting to see him last night at the Apollo (not nearly as big as it looks on TV! Who knew?) was nothing short of awesome. He played a few slow jams by himself, opening with the title track, 'Hold Time,' off his brand new album, then rocked out with his band and even brought a few members of Brooklyn Americana crew Oakley Hall out on stage (loved those ...

Make Tomorrow Epic.

BY Callie in General

I was out of commiss last weekend with the flu and vertigo, the flu is on its way out but no telling about the vertigo. It seems like it is getting better, or maybe I am just getting used to it. Either way, I will just die if I have to lay around the house for another weekend, even if it is in the snuggie. After the Sex In America symposium I am hoping to make it to the Chicken Hut for what is sure to be an insane parrrrrrty! My roommate/spiritual guide ... Read More

Half-Birthday Knits

BY Lisa in General

    We thought the embroidered grocery bag craft in our Feb/Mar issue (above left) was totally genius. Well it just so happens that Jennifer Reichert, the bag's designer, has many more tricks up her sleeve. My favorites are the custom knit portrait totes she makes (like the one above). Amazing! And if you love that grocery bag but just can't find the time to make it, you can get one right from the creator herself, just check out her Web site, ... Read More
The folks over at the UK gossip site Popbitch have a secret weapon in their fight for Oscar prediction supremacy this year. He's a 'psychic' cat named Wilbur and according to his posse, you'd have to be a fool to bet against him: 'Now two years old, Wilbur had a difficult start to life. He was abandoned as a kitten with his sister under a hedge in a park. When rescued, he hid under the sofa for months. When he finally ventured out from under the sofa, we were ... Read More

It should be really interesting, also I bet the crowd is full of awesomeness too! I invited my friend Jill ... Read More
Courtesy of Warner Bros. Variety is reporting that Twentieth Century Fox is pushing back the release date of the Sandra Bullock flick All About Steve so it wouldn't go up against Warner Bros.' super-hyped comic book movie Watchmen. Of course, things get complicated when you add in the legal tug of war between Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros. over Watchmen rights, which resulted in Fox now 'having a stake' in Watchmen and essentially competing against ...

  In honor of International Women's Day (IWD) which is March 8 of this year (mark your calenders!!), the Lomographic Society and the chic French boutique, colette have gotten together to create a brand new (and may I say very, very cute) Diana camera for purchase.  But, the camera is not all!  Along with the Diana being revamped, a book full of dreamy photographs and text have been created to go with it.  The 'Dianalogues' showcase ...

Built by Wendy Fall o9!

BY Laurie in General

Thursday night I went to see the Built by Wendy Fall collection and it was beautiful. With a mix of super short wool dresses and skirts and sleek pants, the vibe was part sexy librarian with a little mod kick for good measure. I really loved the tweed pants and jeans with the little tie at the bottom, sort of a reined in harem pant, but much more utilitarian than hippie. I also was digging the print D'Urberville dresses and tops which had a chic vintage look. A ... Read More
