Remember this album? Kathleen Hanna's side project in between Bikini Kill and Le Tigre totally ruled my high school world. My favorite track was totally 'Stay Monkey' I still think of it every time I eat cold coconut ice cream. Re-listen to the entire album here....

This past week, I got to do one of the most fun things ever: Teach Mo Rocca to knit. Mo got himself into some hot water with the knitting community a few weeks ago (yes, there is such a thing as a 'knitting community,') when he made the horrifying 'joke' on NPR's Wait Wait..Don't Tell Me that 'I hate handknit sweaters. Handknit sweaters are always itchy.' The remark caused an uproar on knitting blogs and community sites, and Mo heard all about it....

Everyone has been all over the Chris Brown-Rihanna beating controversy (c'mon, we've all seen the TMZ photo of her face post-beating by now...) that the Big-O has stepped in, and you KNOW it's somethin' serious when Oprah lays it down to ya. (Let's not forgot how she invited author James Frey back just to call him out for lying to her face on her show!) I mean, who wasn't shocked to see Rihanna and Chris Brown back together after what seemed like a...

     I watch The Bachelor. And not just off-handedly while flipping channels, or once in awhile if I happen to be home. On Mondays I make a point to have dinner made by 8 so I can give each episode (and the adult beverages my friend Amber always brings over) my full attention. This garners me endless teasing from my boyfriend and I've only recently come to terms with admitting my slight obsession to friends. But I can't help it, I'm hooked. The show is...

Is it just me, or did anyone else feel slightly violated by Bruce's crotch attack? Yes? No? Either way, as my friend Tito put it, getting BossCocked is totes the new Rick Roll!...

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! ...

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....

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...

A while back, I posted about the weird youtube/FOC mashup phenom of people (mostly ladies) videotaping themselves lip-sychning to various Flight of the Conchords songs. Well, seems like the Conchs themselves have gotten wind of this weirdness, and so now HBO is running a Flight of the Conchords Lip Synch contest on their site , in order to promote the new season. They've already posted a few entries; I'm not sure if these are real or faked as examples for further submissions, but anyway, they are...
