Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Yo La Tengo To Jay-Z

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! But first, we’d like to wish Pink a very happy birfday. And ladies, if there’s one thing you do today, it’s gotta be letting Josh Homme and Dave Grohl rock tease you with their new super-group trailer. Man, we can’t wait for them to whip it out! Err, the record. OK, now let’s focus on today, cause it’s got some pretty sweet releases. This week Jay-Z kills it, Mayer Hawthorne is our soul man, A Fine Frenzy drops a bomb, Yo La Tengo has us wanting more, Sondre Lerche makes us like the kinda nova you can’t put on a bagel (aka bossa), and the Vivian Girls rule, boys drool, obvi. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” Hires/Fires The Ladies

Hey, so you know how last week we were all, “Yippee! ‘Saturday Night Live’ has added two new lady cast members!”? Well today, I’m all, “Oh crap, they fired Casey Wilson and Michaela Watson?” Broadsheet wonders, “Does ‘SNL’ have a lady quota?” Good question. Keep reading »

Love This Book: Life’s Too F***ing Short by Janet Street-Porter

Do books with titles like How To Be Like Audrey Hepburn! or Live Like Marilyn Monroe! make you wanna ralph? Yeah, me, too. I’m never going to be like Audrey Hepburn, either. Janet Street-Porter is the advice guru for me and you. She’s a sixty-something, unmarried, world-traveled, and self-made British journalist who has penned an anti-advice advice book full of wisdom like “Life’s too f***ing short to spend $200 on face cream” or “Life’s too f***ing short to try to be a size zero.” Street-Porter says quick fixes like fad diets, wrinkle cream and spa vacations never deliver what they promise. Instead she encourages something akin to radical self-acceptance. Full of cussing and unconventional wisdom, Life’s Too F***ing Short is a less gentle advice book than the norm, to be sure. But I’ll take an older, wiser aunt with a dirty mouth over an unoriginal, Audrey Hepburn wannabe any day. [$10.85, Amazon.com] Keep reading »

Guess That Fan Fiction, Win Nerd Respect!

My best friend once made the mistake of telling me that she had written “Buffy” fan fiction when she was younger and I mercilessly teased her for years, even though it was that nerdy center that endeared her to me in the first place. Some of you may not be familiar with the steamy underground world of fan fiction where devoted fans think up (often sexy) scenarios for their favorite characters. For fun, we’ve rounded up six fanfic excerpts and taken out the nouns so you can guess which show/book/movie they are based on. Guess all six correctly and win … dork credibility? Keep reading »

Bettie Page Does Bumps, Grinds And Mash-Ups


It’s Labor Day Weekend— forget work! Let’s watch Bettie Page work it in this Burlesque Teaserama mash-up to “Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus. Although, truth be told, I think I did racier moves back in the day at my dance recitals. Does that make me a bigger ho than Bettie?

Latest ’80s Comeback: The Smurfs In 3D!

La, la, la, la, la, la. For some reason, whenever I let my mind go blank, the word “smurf” pops into it. So I’m pretty excited that Sony Pictures is working on a movie version of the little blue guys that’ll be out circa December 2010. “The Smurfs” will be partly in 3-D animation and partly with live actors. This is the first image to be released while the film is in pre-production. Rumor has it that John Lithgow will play Gargamel and that Raja Gosnell (“Scooby Doo”) will direct. Not much is out about the movie’s plot, but most seem to think it focuses on Clumsy Smurf. All I gotta say is—I hope this time around, there are more lady smurfs that just Smurfette and Sassette.

Trailer Park: “All About Steve,” “Extract,” “Amreeka”

It’s Labor Day weekend! Hallelujah! Time to wear all your white clothing simultaneously, light up the barbecue, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. And because it’s a three-day weekend, you have a whole extra day to go to the movies! It may be a good opportunity to acknowledge “Amreeka” or “Extract” some fun out of your life. But it’s not necessarily “All About Steve,” cause, as far as I’m concerned, that guy’s lame. OK, I’ll stop. Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Recap: “I’m The Director”

NeNe Leakes shouted “I’m the director” all over Buckhead as she prepared “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for the alter-ego photo shoot by photographer Derek Banks. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The episode opened with the social director of the crew (NeNe) inviting Kandi and Sheree for Minx Nails manicures. They really over-shared about their pubic hair while getting primped. Kandi got rid of hers with electrolysis. And Sheree is completely bald, and I don’t know why. Brazilians? Alopecia? Who knows.
