Leave m' Lily Alone!

BY Susan in Music Stuff

Last Tuesday night I went to see Lily Allen at the Bowery Ballroom with Matt and Kim and it was such an awesome show. Except for the people...When miss L.A. got on stage she was super cute (as usual) but when she took a swig from a glass of what could have been water or soda, everyone in the audience was shouting 'Yeah Lily! Way to go!' and other encouraging words for her to 'drink' even though she has apparently quit drinking and drugs entirely. It was pretty ... Read More

Handmade Nation

BY Susan in Artsy

If you haven't heard of the incredible book Handmade Nation by now, then you are certainly missing out! Written by Faythe Levine and Cortney Heimerl published back in October, the book has since become a documentary capturing the burgeoning craft and DIY movement across America. Currently there are screenings across the country (and other countries), and this week the flick is debuting in the big apple. The premiere screening on Thursday is completely sold out, but ...

Raised In Craftivity

BY Susan in Artsy

Raised in Craftivity, curated by Mara Elena Buszek, is a long-running show at the Wignall Museum at Chaffey College in California . It started up just last night with a curator's walk and reception. The exhibit features artists who work in typically craft-oriented media like ceramics, beadwork, woodwork and knitting. These are usually disdained as being 'feminine,' 'domestic' and 'amateur,' but today, this kind of craft media is being embraced and subverted. Some ... Read More

FINALLY!

BY Susan in Style File

Not only is TopShop finally coming to America, but they have an official date! That 'Opening Fall 2008' sign has toyed with my emotions for years now. Ever since I went to London a few years ago, I have literally been hoping to have TopShop here, everyday. Sure, I could have ordered online many times, but there is nothing quite like trying something on, or getting first dibs on celeb-designed lines or even snagging some in-store-only sales. Not only are they ... Read More

Totally 4 Teens!

BY Susan in General

The geniuses behind my personal favorites Street Carnage, Wonder Showzen and the Daily Show have made a new Adult Swim show called 'Totally 4 Teens.' It is an insanely hilarious play on all the cheese that I grew up watching on television like MTV's TRL, shows on Nickelodeon, and YTV (if you are Canadian, you know what I'm sayin'.) Tacky sets, open-mouth breathing kids, and of course a too rad for mom and dad kind of host tops off the perfect parody. If you missed ... Read More

Pour Your Body Out

BY Susan in Artsy

One of the best things about holidays and living in New York is finally having the time to check out the amazing resources the city has to offer. Last week on my days off I made it uptown to the MOMA and finally got around to seeing Pipilotti Rist's installation 'Pour Your Body Out'. I had huge hopes for it after seeing clips of it and pictures online weeks before. When I got there it was really crowded (I guess we all had the same intentions) and all the cozy ... Read More
