Congratulations to the always humble and forever adorable Tina Fey for winning her best lead actress Emmy last night, as well as wins for 30 Rock and Alec Baldwin. 'I thank my parents for somehow raising me to have confidence that is disproportionate with my looks and abilities. Well done. That is what all parents should do,' said Fey. ...

Local changed how I viewed comics. I started reading this book about three years ago, with the first issue. I've been a comics junkie for years now, but Local was something different. It read like a short film, and its single-issue size made it feel like a perfect indie rock song. Now all twelve issues have been collected into a beautiful, oversize hardcover, complete with backmatter from the originals and extra art to boot. It's more a mixtape than a movie, a series of significant moments...

I just peeped this interesting little tidbit on Pop Bitch : On MIA's 'Paper Planes,' the word 'weed' has been bleeped on western daytime radio. In Indonesia and Malaysia, when Katy Perry's song 'I Kissed A Girl' is played, the word 'girl' is bleeped.

New Orleans has been dealt yet another blow this past week with Hurricane Gustav's visit to the Gulf Coast, but one of the best ways to help the city heal has always been contributing to its musicians. One of the most unique acts in the city, the New Orleans Bingo! Show, is visiting New York for three shows at Spiegelworld this week, and I can't think of a better setting to see this vaudeville/cabaret/carnival/lounge/performance art act. If you love old jazz, burlesque, theater, and of course,...

  VS. HBO's True Blood airs this Sunday, and if you are into vampires, get ready for alot of uber violent shenanigans and sexual tension between the main characters played by Anna Paquin and Stepen Moyer. I saw the first two episodes and did not fall immediately in love, but its fun and I think I need to watch a few more episodes to get the full effect. The story is based on a book by Charlaine Harris, 'Southern Vampire,' and takes place in New...

I just love John Stewart, and this is a great clip about the republican's hypocrisy. ...

I am kind of upset I didn't come up with some of those jokes. 'Turn your yeast infection into a jewel collection', that so could have been me that made that joke! I did give myself a good chuckle last night though. I went to the junk boat show I blogged about yesterday (my camera died but I will take some pictures of it soon, it will be docked all week and then it moves to Deitch) and someone asked me where my man...

So I gutted it out through the 2 hour premiere of 90210: the new season last night. Truly gut-wrenching, and not in a good way. I so fondly remember sneaking (yes, sneaking) to watch the original series, as everyone who's above the age of 18 does. So i promised myself that even if the new one sucked, i would watch it anyway. Holy vast disappointment! First of all, that Naomi chick drove me completely bonkers! What is with her? I can't put my finger on...

Chuck Bass just gets more foxy with each and every episode. Also loving the Nate and Mrs. Robinson storyline, since I have not seen Madchen since the Twin Peaks days. ...
