If the latest issue of New York Magazine is the big Fall Fashion issue, then why is Lake Bell gracing it in her birthday suit? Does the latest fall trend require me to bare my nipples to the world, too?

If you've never listened to Hunx and His Punx you should probably get on that, like yesterday. Seth Bogart (Hunx himself) writes killer rock 'n' roll songs with the talented Shannon Shaw (of Shannon and the Clams) who wails her heart out like you wouldn't believe until you hear it IRL for yourself. Bogart likes to call it "hairdresser pop," or maybe "punk-pop" (not to be confused with pop-punk), and lately you might call it "street punk." (Mostly because their ... Read More
