In anticipation for their upcoming album, It's Blitz!, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released a brand new track, Zero, and it's available for streaming on their myspace! According to the band, the new record is way more experimental than previous releases. I'm willing to bet it's going to be another outstanding production from one of our favorite rock bands. Let the countdown begin! ...
I'll admit: I don't really get modern art. And I especially don't get Heide Hatry's art. Hatry is an artist who sculpts using clay and raw meat. In one series, Meat after Meat Joy (Meat Joy was a 1964 performance piece and I really don't get the art of performance art), Hatry created an American flag out of meat, complete with maggots. Okay, fine, it lacks subtlety, but let's assume she was going for a blunt and shocking political statement. Heads and Tales , her newest exhibition,...

For the first time in America, Mr. Gainsbourg's masterpiece Histoire de Melody Nelson is being released! Recorded in 1971 with the help of his uber-sexy muse Jane Birkin, this remastered work comes with all sorts of goodies, including a Q&A interview and the albums original artwork. This is a serious piece of music history, I am definitely putting my name on the pre-order list and you can too by going here! You're welcome. ...

So maybe you think Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Larry Clark were some amazing photographers. You probably think they had an amazing eye, sense of composition, appreciation for color, and so on. But when you look at the incredible found photo collection of  the mysterious Superbomba , you may reconsider. Or, at  least, you'll have a newfound appreciation for the importance of editing in the art of photography. Superbomba's gallery of found images are so gorgous, so full of meaning, so memorable, they would...

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 feels like this week will never end! If you feel the same way here is something to get us through until the weekend. How adorable is this super tiny little guy?! My favorite part is at 1:21 when he completely goes nuts on the mic! ...

I spent last weekend at the New York Comic Con, and as per usual, had a wonderful time. Comic cons might get a bad rap, but for me, they're just a place where people can unabashedly celebrate the things they love about comic books, sci-fi and fantasy, and more. Now the video games have taken over large chunks of the con floor, it's a little bit harder to get around, and Artist's Alley--the section of the floor where artists set up shop, sell prints, and do...
