Just a little Dusty

BY Laurie in Music Stuff

I went to see the very fine singer, Shelby Lynne sing the songs off her upcoming 2008 album of Dusty Springfield covers, Just a Little Lovin' last night at Hiro in NYC. Now dont get me wrong, Shelby is an amazing singer, and I think her 2000 release, I am Shelby Lynne, is probably one of my favorite albums of all time. (it's very Dusty influenced). But during the rather subdued and lackluster set, I found myself just wanting to hear the real deal. Which is maybe ... Read More

RIP Fabulous Moolah

BY Laurie in General

Mary Lillian Ellison, professional lady wrestler also known as The Fabulous Moolah, has died at the age of 84. Since the 1950's she wowed audiences with her signature moves, the leg lock, and the knee drop clothesline, and continued wrestling until very recently. Check out this awesome documentary to learn more: Lipstick and Dynamite (which was featured in BUST a few years back, natch). There is also a book about Moolah that came out in ... Read More

Niggy Tardust

BY Laurie in Music Stuff

          I am loving this new Niggy Tardust release, it's hip hop poet Saul Williams new project that is produced by his pal Trent Reznor, imagine some NIN beats but sung by a genius black man-  much better I tell you! And, similar to the Radiohead release, you can either download it for free, or support a great artist and pay only 5 bucks! Even my cheap ass can afford that :)  Download is available today ...

Fred+Carrie=Awesome

BY Laurie in Feminizzle

      I'd been thinking alot about how funny Fred Armisen is when I got this link yesterday to some weird drumming cd he has coming out on Drag City, I think its a joke but maybe not? Anyway today Jezebel had a link to this hilarious video with Carrie Brownstein (from Sleater Kinney) and Fred calld Feminist ... Read More
This YouTube gem has been hanging around for about a year, but I never seem to get tired of it. Sometimes I'll be walking down the street, and I'll get a Miss Cleo flashback. It just feels ... Read More

Yikes!

BY Laurie in General

While this video does not make me want to go out and buy Dove soap, I do think it's pretty cool that they are recognizing the onslaught that we see everyday, and opening the discussion of body image  to young girls. I mean, my 12 year old knows an anorexic boob job when she sees one, and thinks its gross, yet you cant help wonder what the day to day exposure is doing to her/us. And as its illustrated here, there is an awful lot of it out there. (kudos to one ... Read More
