That being said, here's a big eff you to the weather, the first real day of the week, and whatever else is bothering you! (Thanks Cee-Lo, you are awesome.)

It's hall in a days work as Leslie takes time out to show us around her hometown of Ames, Iowa.  "GOOD MORNING! I'm so happy to see you show up at my house for a museum tour.  The mobile Museum is behind my house, I can promise free admission but I can't promise that I'll be dressed or not be gas-y." "To stay in shape, I find bicycles to be the easiest non-sweaty way to burn lower leg calories.  This mud pile is a hole my dad dug up to build a wall. I'm not sure if the outfit is pajamas or a sleek one piece". Read More
The Thermals (a band I had to all but arm wrestle my editor to let me include in the music section for the Oct/Nov issue) released a video for the first single from their upcoming album Personal Life. The song is called "I Don't Believe You," and it features Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney guitarist and KRS label mate) running around in some leisure wear. That's really all there is to say on the matter, other than the fact that sometimes it really does seem like all roads lead back to Carrie Brownstein. Read More
  For one night only Leslie and the Lys took over the Des Moines Social Club by pushing back all the tables and chairs and creating the ultimate dance party. With lessons and games and DJ Mona Bones on the decks, nobody went home without getting up on the dance floor.  The following is the photographic proof with captions by Leslie Hall. "This crew I would consider top tier providers of lovely-ness. When they show up they have style class and a pinch of domination. I'd take notes study up and pay attention cause me like'zze."   I'm gonna find myself surrounded by hot thangs. Read More
