Nico 1938-1988

BY Laurie in General |

 20 years ago today, while working at CMJ’s predecessor, the New Music Seminar, the former proprietor of lower east side watering holes, Beauty Bar, Barmacy and No Tell Motel, Deb Parker, casually remarked during lunch “I think Nico just died”. Silence. I stopped in mid chew and a chill went down my spine. “Nico?” I gulped, ‘Really?” I couldn’t believe it. That evening The New York Times ran an obituary on her ... Read More

I am Wild.

BY Team Intern in General |

  True story! It's a perfume just pour moi! We got these cute perfumes from Danica and I was the lucky lady to try them out.  I dig the Wild version because my nose can easily sniff out the Jasmine, one of my favorite scents. I normally veer away from anything fruity, which would give me an all-day starbursts crave.  However, in this the summery peach and passion fruit isn't at all overwhelming, but a welcome surprise amongst that fresh jasmine ...

Forget Christian Bale! Spot, you'll always be the man of my eleven year old heart. (image taken from ... Read More
