I want a pink car, dammit!Last year, Nisssa painted one of their compact model cars pink, then toured it around the UK as part of a breast cancer fundraising event. NOt surprisingly, folks begged Nissan to produce the car in pink for reals -- and they did. The 100 units sold out quickly, so they came back with another 150. STateside we never even had a chance at this pink panther, since this cutie car, the Nissan Micra, isnt' even for sale here. It's not the first ... Read More

We know we're getting all creepy trekkie-obsessed with the dudes from Flight of the Conchords, but we can't stop ourselves. In last week's episode, they sang a love song to all the ladies of the world (from Namibian to amphibian; erudite to hermaphrodite). Now it looks like the ladies are singing back!First up, the soulful "Jemaine", from a future Mrs. Clement:  Next, "Bret. will you be my Ukelele lover?" from a Mrs. McKenzie wannabe: So ... Read More

Okay, so, yeah, I'm totes obsessed with Flight of the Conchords , and always enjoy the songs in their episodes-- those funny, pitch-perfect takeoffs on various music genres. But last night's song-- a mock '60s French pop number, whose lyrics consisted of only those French words that someone who'd studied it in high school would be likely to remember--is so good, I'd gladly listen to it even if it weren't funny. Oh, and the cute  video, complete with bicycles, ... Read More

I found myself a little forlorn this past Sunday, with no more episodes of the Sopranos to help ease me through the dreaded depression of those Sunday night, the-weekend's-over-beeyotch blues.  I tuned into HBO's new series, "Flight of the Conchords," figuring it was maybe going to be good since I'd just seen its star, the dorkily sexy Jemaine Clement, in a preview of the film Eagle vs. Shark. I was expecting to be mildly entertained, but instead, I ... Read More

Blame it on Rio

If you're a Brazillian woman and you wind up with an unintended pregnancy, you're SOL—abortions are illegal in this South American country, although 800,000 are performed illegally every year, and result in the deaths of 4,000 women annually. However, now there's some good news: President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva yesterday announced to his thong-clad nation that he's going to subsidize birth-control pills so that they are affordable to anyone who wants ...
