So last night I had a free pass to go see Small Black play a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, but opted to stay home and work on my night cheese instead. This morning I am riddled with anxiety about having missed it, because I am quickly becoming a massive fan of their melodic Casio stylings. Their debut self-titled EP is set to come out later this month on Jagjaguwar and it's pretty much a perfect little nugget of lazy keyboards, casual boy singing, and ... Read More

At the New York premiere of Breaking Upwards this month at IFC, Julie White walked the red sidewalk in the fetching emerald number pictured above. This was, of course, my big chance to say "who are you wearing?" and I flubbed it. Luckily, Ms. White spoke up: "Since you're the feminist gal," --guilty-- "...this dress is from a boutique on Fifth Ave. in Park Slope called Asha Veza, and all the clothes are designed and constructed by women in India ...

While being whisked away by the cops for assaulting and harrassing a limo driver, raging cyclist Perzeus Forte flashed his bad-boy good looks at the camera, officially smashing the hearts of the ladies at the BUST Magazine office, much like the windshield of the limo driver that he also smashed.
Forte's passionate uprising is the result of being clipped by limo driver Darr Mohammed while delivering packages on his bike. With his brute strength alone, Forte ... Read More

We might think we’re not that influenced by fairy tales and all that childhood Disney watching. But alas, a recent LiveScience study found that even though there are more 30-something single women than ever the “spinster” stigma is still not lifting. The media has traditionally portrayed them as either desperate to get married or so career-driven that they "don't need a man." Seeking Happily Ever After, a documentary directed by Michelle Cove ...

As a die hard Tina Fey fan, I couldn’t wait to get a big, feature-film-length dose of her impeccable comic timing when I went see her star opposite Steve Carrell in Date Night. But I’m sorry to report, not even the boundless charisma and adorable chemistry of the film’s perfectly-cast stars could make up for the absurdly stupid plot of this romantic caper.
The flick actually starts off reasonably well, setting up Fey and Carrell as over-worked ... Read More
