Oh yeah, baby, you know what time it is. It's business time. TV business. Flight of the Conchords business. The new episode isn't airing until Sunday, January 18th, at 10pm, but if you need your FOC fix right now or you don't have HBO, you can watch it right here! ...

  I was really into Be Your Own Pet, and wasn't terribly surprised when they broke up (momentarily disappointed maybe) but am psyched to hear lead singer Jemina Pearl is working on a solo album. She'll be playing with Denver's excellent contribution to Grunge, The Fluid this Saturday in Brooklyn. Check it!...

We obviously watch alot of tv around here, and the Snuggie infomercial is all the rage. There are so many awesome things about the Snuggie, lets list them here; it's cult like, it looks like an American Burqa or Hare krishna suit, it supports size diversity, it is mulletlike (business up front-party in the back -its backless!), it enables you to break out the 'Like a Prayer' chorus, and it solves the horror of having to answer the phone while being trapped in a blanket....

I am sad to say that this is the second and last trade of The Vinyl Underground. Apparently, comics readers didn't like it as much as I did, since it was canceled after twelve issues. Still, you can scoop up collection one, Watching the Detectives, as well as this current one, Pretty Dead Things, and enjoy the occult crimefighting rock'n'roll goodness for a time, anyway. The book reads like a freakier CSI, with each character a different part of the team. Morrison Shepherd (Moz, but he gets...

The new Showtime series , The United States of Tara, launches in a few weeks, and it looks like everything we could have hoped for, and more. Since it stars Toni Colette and is written by Diablo Cody, we've been expecting a feminist feast along the lines of a Muriel's Wedding/Juno mashup, and it looks like the ladies have delivered something even better. A women's studies dissertation waiting to happen, this show deals with a mid-western mama with 3 personalities: a man, a sexpot teen,...

I have been spreading my love of The Room ever since Colleen Kane introduced it to me about 3 years ago. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is possibly the worst movie of all time. I get really excited when it gets mentioned in anything. I almost blasted a shit when Debbie told me that they had a story on the cult phenomenon in Entertainment Weekly a couple weeks ago. Apparently David Cross and Paul Rudd are both...

I love this song. New album out Feb 4th!...

I love this print by Caroline Hwang and it just went up for sale at Tiny Showcase. Not only is it a mere $20 (even I can afford that), but also the proceeds go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, helping to save boobies everywhere....

Looks like Brody Dalle has a new band, and so far, me likey very much. While I was never much a fan of the Distillers mall punk sound, I love the direction Spinnerette is taking. With a video by the amazing Liam Lynch , and a sound that seems very influenced by her baby daddy's band, Queens of the Stone Age, I have a feeling this girl could quite possibly kick some much needed life into the rock scene. With her gorgeous looks and...

Taking a book club and turning it into an all-girl, reading-inspired, song-fest? What will they think of next? Once I peeped these deets below on nonsense nyc , I was hooked (though it would be cool if they added some women writers to the mix in 2009, doncha think?): Bushwick Book Club - Tuesday, Jan 6 Unparalleled songwriting nerdery. Local songwriters Phoebe Kreutz, Chloe Matheou, Liv Carrow, and Susan Hwang perform songs inspired by, and based on, Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. Book-themed food and drink...
