Street artist Swoon has been taking her fleet of junk boats down the Mississippi River for years. This summer she's been floating down the Hudson for 3 weeks, putting on performances along the way. A couple of my friends went along for the ride this year. Including my roommate and one of my regular pieces of tail. Stoked to have them back, my house and my vagina both felt so empty. They just docked in New York and there is a performance tonight at 8 pm. ... Read More
I've attended the New Couture Fashion Show for the past 3 years now, and each time, Cassie K's fashion shows get bigger, better, and totally out of control. If the name sounds familiar that's because Cassie was on an episode of MTV's True Life: I'm Going to Fashion Week. While the other mini story lines in the episode featured people working in the fashion industry who were totally losing it from the stress of their job, Cassie held it down like a total rock star ...

She's also got a mountain of red hair and a bad attitude. She's trying to save a futuristic city that may or may not actually exist, and she's got to do it by herself, and the clock is ticking... Warren Ellis is the twisted brain behind such gems as Transmetropolitan and ... Read More

Planned Parenthood handed out more than 700 pounds of condoms at the Democratic National Convention, and not just because Dems are sexy. Each condom was enclosed in a hot pink matchbook bearing the message: ''Protect Yourself From John McCain (In This Election).'' The back lists one of Planned Parenthood's top ten reasons to NOT vote for McCain, such as the frightening #10 -- John McCain has voted against women's reproductive rights and privacy 125 times in ...

Burrito Cake

BY Dawn in General

This weekend I'll be celebrating a belly that has been full of beans and cheese for 26 years, and I really need to have this cake made by Amanda Leamons . The tortilla chips are made out of fondant!!! But I realize my chances are as thin as a finely sliced avocado, which is why I'll be taking baking classes over this next year. By next August, I'll be able to bake this cake myself, and not share with ... Read More
This Saturday, my favorite noise punks, Parts and Labor are performing as part of a three band round robin with Aa and Pterodactyl! All three bands will be set up simultaenously, with the audience in the middle, as they trade off on songs. It'll be epic, and you you will be there. I'm pretty stoked about seeing the new Parts and Labor lineup. They've recently added Sarah Lipstate on guitar and electronics! Saturday August 30th @ HARKET MOTEL (1142 Myrtle @ Bdwy ... Read More

Get your art on the go

On this day in 1920, American women finally were granted the right to vote. It's a big deal, and not something to be taken for granted, so if you haven't already registered to vote, take a second and do it now . Do it for ... Read More
