When I was a kid, my eccentric and most creative aunt in Oregon hung these visually appealing, but somewhat disturbing framed prints of little kids with big eyes, and sad faces in her bathroom...  So, every time I had to use the loo at her house, I felt these "Keane" images were staring directly at me.  Sometimes I would try to imagine what was going on in these big-eyed, little kids world, and why they were all so sad?    It ...

BY Team Intern in General

   Alright busty ladies.  I got my issue last Friday, and I am so pleased. I have poured over the pages and even managed to translate some of the editorial (woohoo for 6 years of Latin!) I’m just pleased with everything, from the piece on the Obamas (I’ve got a total girl crush on Michelle) to seeing a big pic of Lena Horne.  Maybe I’ll write a thank you letter to Franca Sozzani because I’m seriously thinking this woman ...

BY Laurie in General

 20 years ago today, while working at CMJ’s predecessor, the New Music Seminar, the former proprietor of lower east side watering holes, Beauty Bar, Barmacy and No Tell Motel, Deb Parker, casually remarked during lunch “I think Nico just died”.
