Jemina Pearl, of Be Your Own Pet buzz, is out with a new single titled, 'I Hate People' featuring Iggy Pop. I just saw the diner-inspired video (with Thurston Moore!) and I must say, I find the campy bits featuring old pics of Mr. Pop quite cute. Definitely check it out below. You can also check out Pearl's personal blog here and her myspace page here! nicole! Video courtesy of ... Read More
Apparently, Oprah received some flak for not having Sarah Palin on her show during the presidential election. Oprah states that Palin's team never asked for her to be on the show and besides, why should they have? They probably knew like the rest of us that lady O was a huge Obama supporter from the start. Anyhoo, Oprah will feature Ms. Palin on Nov. 16th, the day before Going Rogue: An American Life, lands in bookstores. If you're like me, you could care less ... Read More

I Must See This!

BY Web Intern in General

I'm a Roald Dahl fan and I must admit, I have never read Fantastic Mr. Fox. Turns out the Wes Anderson movie-adaptation will hit theaters Nov. 25th and from the looks of the preview, I'm incredibly excited and eagerly awaiting its release. If you're unfamiliar with the story, Mr. Fox tries to keep one step ahead of three nitwit farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean who are trying to dig him out of his home! Cute shenanigans follow as Fox and the gang try to keep ... Read More

I'm Having a What?

BY Web Intern in General

When one of my sisters found out she was expecting, she immediately said, 'I hope it's a girl.' She wanted to buy the adorable pink clothing, toys, etc. and thought that it would easier to raise a girl nowadays. When her sonogram revealed a little member...well, she was a tad disappointed. Hell, I think she shed a tear or two. Now that my nephew is nearly six years old and full of spunk, she couldn't imagine things being any different. For some ladies, getting ... Read More

You Eat This?!

BY Web Intern in General

I was wandering around the Serious Eats website, a food blog about chow in the NYC area, and spotted this odd baked good. In Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, you can find a recipe for Frida Kahlo's Pan de Muerta, which is a traditional Day of the Dead treat made to honor those that have passed on. Oh Ms. Kahlo, I don't know if this is what you were going for with your recipe but know that I find it somewhat cute and ... Read More
While being a sicky-poo this weekend I caught up on YouTube videos and boy, I found a unique diddy. Jack's (wouldn't it be nice to be on a first name basis with him? I think so) most recent project, The Dead Weather, just put out a new video for the single I Cut Like A Buffalo a couple of weeks back and I can't believe I am this late in seeing it! Jack looking as fine as ever in a video he himself directed?! I'll take it! And another thing, if you're familiar with ... Read More
Sufjan Stevens played his second show at the Bowery Ballroom on October 5th as part of a small tour he is performing to workshop some new songs. Opening band Cryptacize got the sold-out show warmed up with pretty song stylings and herky jerky dance moves provided by lead singer Nedelle Torrisi. Nedelle also took the stage for background vocal duties during the entirety of Sufjan's set. The start of the evening was a bit rough due to a confusing mush of lines ... Read More
Clare And The Reasons are listed as being Chinese Traditional music on their MySpace profile, but they are not Chinese nor Traditional. What they are is a Brooklyn based band fronted by Clare Manchon who is releasing its second album, Arrow, on October 20th. The first initial notes off of Arrow are sweet in such a way as to fool listeners into settling in for what they think may be a placid ride into musical dreamland. That doesn't last for long. Five ... Read More
