Mr. Lonely

BY Laurie in General

Harmony Korine’s new film “Mr. Lonely” opens this weekend, and it’s pretty good. Starring Diego Luna as a Michael Jackson impersonator, it’s probably the artiest art film I’ve seen in a while. The story follows Michael in Paris, where he meets a Marilyn Monroe impersonator played by the always amazing Samantha Morton. They go to Scotland to live on a commune with a bunch of other impersonators, and tragedy ensues. There is also a seemingly unrelated side story about nuns that jump out of planes flown by one of my heroes, Werner Herzog. Read More

Smell Yo D*ck

BY Laurie in Music

OK, Callie turned us on to this Florida rapper Riskay awhile ago, and now she's got a video for everyones favorite song about that worrisome cheating boyfirend. The chorus is ridiculoulsy catchy, I promise if you hear this at least once, you wiil not be able to get it out of your head. NY Magazine calls it an instant classic. Check out Callie's interview with Riskay in the June issue of BUST, on newsstands in a few weeks. Read More

Claw Money for Boosted

BY Laurie in Style

Now that fanny packs are no longer just for German tourists and roller bladers, you can get one of these sweet sacks designed by our favorite Graffiti girl, Claw Money. She designed an 8 piece line for Boosted, that include a laptop case, a tote and a duffle and various other sized bags. These are what you put your mobile devices in, or your weed. I love the gold details, plus they are faux leather so very nice for the animal lovers out there. Claw is one talented lady, and this is just one of the many projects this gal has going on. Check out this short bio of her below. Read More

There seems to be an abundance of good music coming from the Continent these days, with Duffy and Adele from the UK, Yelle and Uffie from France, and these guys (also from the UK) which are on heavy rotation here at the office. Read More

BK vs. BC

BY Laurie in Music

I love the Black Keys, their latest record Attack and Release (Nonesuch) is amazing, here is the video for Your Touch. I think one of the reasons I love them so much is that singer Dan Auerbach sounds exactly like Paul Rodgers from the 70's band Bad Company. Below is a BC clip from 1975, check out the crop top and white bells, and those might just be clogs on his feet. Read More

Toteable fire

BY Laurie in General

Ok, I am obsessed with fireplaces, and am always scheming for a way to put one in my apartment in NYC, but since I dont have a chimney, I would have to build one of those smokeless gel ones, and I bet they smell like nasty fumes, so it probably wont happen. Anyway, stumbled on this ridic gadget, the Travelmate, which I was sure was a hoax, but maybe not? For 1,300 Euros you too can have a fire in a breifcase. Bizarre. Read More

American Idol

BY Laurie in Music

I'm a little embarrassed to admit to watching American Idol, but it was really great having Dolly on the show tonight. Of course she is too nice to "judge anyone"-she is just so sweet you cant help but love her! And for once the kids did pretty good with their versions of her songs. Unfortunately my favorite "Coat of Many Colors" which always gets me a little verklempt, was sung by my least favorite, Kristy lee,  and it did not wow. Australian Michael was great, and Saisha did a 1/2 Dolly 1/2 Whitney version of "I will always love you". Read More

Walk this way

BY Laurie in Feminism

Well hot damn, it’s about time! From years of carrying Band-Aids in my purse, spending ridiculous amounts of money on pedicures and trying to come up with the perfect remedy to heal gnarly bunions and blisters, men will (for one day) grasp the reasoning behind all of my bitching. Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is an organization that will literally make men walk a mile, in heels, to protest sexualized violence against women. The walk educates the public and raises money for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence centers, and women’s services. Read More
