Totally 4 Teens!

BY Susan in General |

The geniuses behind my personal favorites Street Carnage, Wonder Showzen and the Daily Show have made a new Adult Swim show called 'Totally 4 Teens.' It is an insanely hilarious play on all the cheese that I grew up watching on television like MTV's TRL, shows on Nickelodeon, and YTV (if you are Canadian, you know what I'm sayin'.) Tacky sets, open-mouth breathing kids, and of course a too rad for mom and dad kind of host tops off the perfect parody. If you missed ... Read More

Jemina!

BY Laurie in Music Stuff |

 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 ... Read More

She's Got Legs

BY Mollie Wells in Style File |

Though I'm not the biggest fan of cold weather (as I type this, there's an inch of ice smothering every sidewalk in my city), I do have a serious soft spot for tights.

Nearly every sort of tight you could ever want, all available in a crazy-go-nuts palette of 45 colors. Plus, ... Read More

Snuggie trend watch

BY Laurie in Boob Tube |

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 ...

The Vinyl Underground

BY Sarah J. in Artsy |

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. ... Read More
