I'm sure by now you've heard about Macaulay Culkin's Velvet Underground parody band, "Pizza Underground," or rather the band that's existed for a year and a half and was recently joined by Culkin. The concept is simple: the band takes Velvet Underground songs and changes the lyrics to make them everything pizza. According to an interview with Vulture, vocalist and Nico impersonator Phoebe Kruetz said Culkin, who she refers to simply as, "Mack," was the "extra ... Read More
Annette and Sue Amendola, sisters living in Brooklyn, New York, have been putting up a nativity scene in the lot next to their home for more than ten years. The real Christmas miracle, though, is the fantastic colony of feral cats that takes over the space annually. They curl up between the figurines and cuddle on the warm hay bale that serves as a manger and, duh, it's freakin' adorable.  According to the Amendola sisters, when they lay the baby Jesus in the ...

I don't know about you, but I'm super enamored of Uzo Aduba and Danielle Brooks, better known as Crazy Eyes and Taystee, the characters they play on the Netflix series, Orange is the New Black. Aduba, who has a strong background in theater, is easily one of the best actors on the show, and it doesn't hurt that her character is incredibly heartbreaking and complex. Brooks plays the perceived comic relief, but as the plot develops, her character, Taystee, is ... Read More
I’ve found my new musical crush in Sharkmuffin, an all-female noise-punk trio from Brooklyn whose third EP 1097 debuts this month. If their first two EPs were humble admissions of guilt, 1097 is the realization that they were right all along—a giant ‘fuck you’ to whoever pissed them off personally or politically.  The cover for the first track, "Foul Play" features lead guitarist/vocalist Tarra Thiessen on a beach between two cairns, maybe ...

  Live Through This, a portrait series by Brooklyn-based photographer Dese'Rae L. Stage, takes a unique approach to suicide prevention: it puts a face and name to the survivors.  Stage, who is a survivor of nine years of self-injury and suicide attempt, wanted to shed some light on a highly taboo but prominent issue. According to the project's website, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US and a suicide is attempted every 40 to 60 seconds. ... Read More
How do I love Fred Flare?...Let me count the ways! Where else could you score roller skates, a turntable, and a giant gummy bear on a stick...all at the same time? Fred Flare is the ultimate kooky-kitschy experience, perfectly curated for the total weirdo in all of us. Now, after fifteen years, the dream is over. Fred Flare creators, Chris and Keith, are reportedly "packing up the three cats" and "moving to the country" and we couldn't be any more bummed! There's ... Read More
In case Hand Job Academy’s awesome name didn’t already intrigue you, then the Brooklyn-based rap group’s new video, “Shark Week” is sure to do the job (ha ha ha GET IT?!?). In the video, the trio, made up of three friends—Lil T, a.k.a. Meg Skaff, a 23-year-old filmmaker and the director of “Shark Week”; Clara Bizna$$, a.k.a. Claire Beaudreault, a professional nail artist; and Ash Wednesday, whose real name remains ... Read More
If you’re a fan Breaking Bad, dry your finale tears 'cause you’re in for a treat! Recently, Do or Dine owner/chef Justin Warner and New York Post reporter Kate Briquelet spotted Breaking Bad yarn bombs in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, NY. On the entrance of the G train at Bedford and Nostrand stands a simple crocheted “BrBa,” the show’s infamous symbol, and on the corner of Dekalb Ave and Spencer Ct is a fence that holds a ...

I used to get all sorts of giddy at the thought of summer camp so, of course, I'm extra excited for the camp-esque launch party of she and reverie's spring/summer 2014 collection, appropriately titled "Camp Versailles."  The lifestyle lounge collection is crafted in Brooklyn from soft knits, washed silks and adorable details like merit badges and delicate lace.   While adulthood has its perks, we generally like to have our glitter cupcakes and eat ...

This weekend rapper and fashion influencer Theophilus London performed at the Prospect Park Bandshell. It was an aesthetic clusterfuck.  At peak heat advisory hours, the crowd looked unnaturally chic and danced so hard it became a health risk (really!). It was glorious.  London is a 25-year-old Trinidad-born, Brooklyn-raised rapper that pulls from an impressive array of sounds including new-wave pop, jazz and rock with some lo-fi distortion and trap ...
