Notorious B.I.G.

BY Laurie in Music Stuff |

Who's going to see the Biggie movie Friday night? I hope it's good. My significant other, the very talented photographer Michael Lavine , worked with Biggie several times back in the day, so I've heard some interesting stories. I know when people make a bio, they have to reference the most iconic images, so its fitting that the movie poster echo's one of Michaels shots. Check out our interview with the actor who plays Big, Jamal Woolard, in the new issue hitting ... Read More

Jemina!

BY Laurie in Music Stuff |

  I was really into Be Your Own Pet, and wasn't terribly surprised when they broke up (momentarily disappointed maybe) but am psyched to hear lead singer Jemina Pearl is working on a solo album. She'll be playing with Denver's excellent contribution to Grunge, The Fluid this Saturday in Brooklyn. Check ... Read More

Snuggie trend watch

BY Laurie in Boob Tube |

We obviously watch alot of tv around here, and the Snuggie infomercial is all the rage. There are so many awesome things about the Snuggie, lets list them here; it's cult like, it looks like an American Burqa or Hare krishna suit, it supports size diversity, it is mulletlike (business up front-party in the back -its backless!), it enables you to break out the 'Like a Prayer' chorus, and it solves the horror of having to answer the phone while being trapped in a ...

Spinnerette

BY Laurie in Music Stuff |

Looks like Brody Dalle has a new band, and so far, me likey very much. While I was never much a fan of the Distillers mall punk sound, I love the direction Spinnerette is taking. With a video by the amazing Liam Lynch , and a sound that seems very influenced by her baby daddy's band, Queens of the Stone Age, I have a feeling this girl could quite possibly kick some much needed life into the rock scene. With her gorgeous looks and Joan Jett snarl, girl's got an ... Read More

Same plastic surgeon?

BY Laurie in General |

Is it just me or do all plastic surgery victims end up looking the same? I saw The Wrestler this weekend, it's a sad and lonely story about getting old, and loving to do things that are bad for you, well acted, great soundtrack etc, but the whole time I was watching Mickey Rourke I could not help being distracted by his freaky face. Why do people do ... Read More
