Rockabilly Goddess

BY intern Amber in General |

Get ready to grease your hair with pomade and strap on your suede shoes; Imelda May is bringing rockabilly blues back to the airwaves. A stripped down blend of heavy bass and guitar riffs 'Love Tattoo', her debut album, will satisfy any retro-palate. I dare you not to tap your feet and shake like Ann-Margret when you hear the opening track 'Johnny Got a Boom Boom' or twist your hips to the vibrant rhythms of 'Smokers Song'. You can probably skip slow and steady ... Read More

Hail Mary!

If you've never heard of KnittaPlease, do yourself a favor and look them up...now! Trust me, any group that yarn-bombs is worth a Google-search.The Austin, TX group, founded by Magda Saveg in 2005, is all about adding warmth to cold, lifeless concrete and steel structures with their handmade yarn creations. Not only that, Saveg and her fellow knitters are trying to redefine this craft because it is often pushed aside or seen as 'that thing old women' do in ... Read More

You Go, Girl!

BY Web Intern in General |

Now, I don't follow tennis at all, much less keep track of player standings, but when the 70th-ranked player beats the 13th-ranked one (Nadia Petrova), even I take notice and want to see what all the fuss is about.So who is this new star that's the talk of the US Open? Melanie Oudin, 17, of Marietta, Georgia! Not only has she beat Petrova, but Russian stars Elena Dementieva (ranked no. 4) and Maria Sharapova (ranked no. 29) as well. Oudin's win over Petrova ...

Just when you thought children's toys couldn't get any weirder, a mysterious photo surfaces and pushes the boundaries of taste to whole new levels. This week, we give you the Pole Dancer Doll, a toy that is er, pretty self-explanatory. The baby-faced doll comes outfitted in a sparkly green dress with pole and light-up flashing stage to match. Unfortunately, it seems you'll have to provide the riff-tastic soundtrack yourself (Warrant's 'Sweet Cherry Pie,' anyone?) ... Read More

Vogue! Vogue!

BY Team Intern in General |

I could watch dance shows all day. Center Stage? Seen it at least 10 times (not counting Center Stage 2, mind you). So You Think You Can Dance? Yes, I do (kind of), but I'd rather watch the show. And America's Best Dance Crew? Definitely: especially because of this season's incredibly talented dancers and activists, Vogue Evolution. The crew, which hails from New York City, specializes in Harlem's 'house-ballroom' genre of dance, which includes their namesake ... Read More
