Have you ever worried about getting old? I’m pretty sure everyone over the age of 10 has, and director Mark Wexler certainly does. He thinks about it so much that he set out to find some answers about longevity, and his new documentary film, How To Live Forever is an interesting look at aging in our society. I asked my pal, Ari Seth Cohen who created the inspiring blog, Advanced Style to check out the movie with me.
While some of Wexlers concerns about aging and dying come across as annoying, there is no doubt it is a rich topic that affects all humankind. Read More

Before The Real World, Horrible Housewives or Jersey Shore Jerks, there was An American Family. Back in the early 70’s, the idea of reality TV was born when a documentary filmmaker decided to ask the Loud family from Santa Barbara California, if he could film their daily lives and air it on PBS. Anyone who grew up in the 70s will remember the long, sometimes fascinating, sometimes boring, grainy episodes of American Family that aired, and the two characters that really stood out were Lance, the flamboyantly gay eldest son, and his mother, Pat.

I just love what Merrill Garbus is doing with her band, TUne-Yards. With her way out tribal sounds and kooky face paints, the energy is just fantastic! She's clearly fearless, and I can't wait to see her perform live. Check out this amazing video for Bizness, off her latest album, w h o k i l l on 4AD records, then go see her if she comes to your area. Read More

This clip from the forthcoming Hot Sauce Committee is hilarious! When I heard there was a new Beastie's video, I thought "it would be cool if they had actors playing them, like that Jon Spencer video way back in the day," and guess what? That's exactly what they did, starring Will Farrell, Jack Black, Elijah Wood (doing a spot on Ad-Rock!), John C. Reilly (Come to think of it, John C. Reilly was in that Blues Explosion video too! ), Danny McBride and Seth Rogan to name a few. PS. Read More

Today a very special box of books came into our office.
We’ve been waiting very patiently for Tina Fey’s new book, Bossypants, and man are we stoked and honored to be mentioned on its pages! I plan on reading the entire book immediately but so far, I’ve laughed out loud a few times at the random pages I’ve perused. A long time ago (2004), before Tina was the media mogul she is now, we put her on our cover, and we’ve always remembered the shoot and time spent with her fondly. Read More

When I was a kid, I used to assign gender to different car models, (I did this also to numbers. 5 and 7 were girls, don't ask me why). So of course I fell for this completely ridiculous product, Car Eyelashes, for when you want your car to look especially girlie. They even have glitter eyeliner strips, for when you want your car to look like a drag queen. It's so dumb, yet I must have it. Too bad they don't blink like Herbie the Love Bug!

Our latest cover girl, the lovely Liv Tyler, made the scene last Monday for the premiere of the dark and absurd comedy SUPER, along with her pops, and co-stars Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page.
SUPER is yet another take on the masked super hero genre ala Kick Ass or Scott Pilgrim vs. the world. In SUPER, Liv plays an addict that succumbs to an evil drug dealer, played hilariously by Kevin Bacon (he is exceptionally sleazy and awesome in this role) while her ex, schlumpy husband Frank (Wilson), under the guise of his alter ego, the Crimson Bolt, tries to save her.

Bill Cunningham New York is a wonderful documentary directed by Richard Press that explores the idiosyncratic street photographer, Bill Cunningham. The camera follows the octogenarian around on his bicycle as he zooms in and out of traffic, and as he stops frequently to shoot interesting looking fashions on the streets. He’s been working as a street shooter for the New York Times since 1978. Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved looking at his pages in the Times, and it’s always a thrill to see him in his ubiquitous blue jacket. Read More
