At art school, nude dudes and ladies are a part of the curriculum. I’ve been drawing from unclothed figures for six years, and after seeing the rainbow of people that have modeled for my classes, I realized that anyone could be an art model. The only requirement was that one must be willing to show off all the goods on a pedestal under the scrutiny of ten or more artistically-trained students. This summer, I finally did it. Pants down, art on.As I ... Read More
 Evelyn Evelyn, AKA Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley, recently released an animated music video to their track "Sandy Fishnets." The dark, haunting tune tells the story of the encounter between the conjoined twins, Evelyn and Evelyn, and tragic character Sandy Fishnets. The beautiful, flickering animation - which also includes amazing light painting - is a perfect companion to the song. Palmer and Webley chose director and artist Vince Mascoli to create the ...

For the past couple of years, I’ve been attending the MOCCA (Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art) Festival held at the Lexington Avenue Armory. There, I trade comics with other artists and revel in the geekery. One of my favorite things I walked away with this year was a print by Danish artist Rikke Bakman. (Her awesome bowl cut caught my attention.) She was as adorable as her drawings, not to mention super polite; she even signed my print with a little doodle ... Read More

Last month, I almost got to see Hunx & His Punx in Cambridge, MA. But being a college student with no car, I was cut off by the regional rail schedule and had to stay in the studio, cutting paper or something. Tears were running down my face. (Maybe.) I almost got to see Seth Bogart shake his hot buns in front of me. I almost got to admire the getup of the Punkettes live. I almost got to sassily yell, “Hello? Why are you calling me? I found someone new. ... Read More
  These guys should be Cults status by now. Hailing from Toronto, this five-piece band combined R&B, disco-pop, folk, layered vocals, and electronic beats to create the exciting and varied tracks on their debut EP, It's Never Not Happening. Six tracks off the album - including the infectious "Girls' Night" - are available for download (FREE!) on their Last.fm page. Their most recent single, "Funny Games", is available for download (also free) on their ... Read More
        These girls rang in my summer last year and this year, they’re doing it again. Dara Puspita (“Flower Girls”), an Indonesian quartet from the 60’s,  put out four albums during their six year run. Though they disbanded in 1972, Dara Puspita made Indonesian history by being one of the few girl groups that provided their own instrumental backings. At the time of their debut, rock and roll was a big ... Read More
