No matter how many times he sadly sits down to eat a cupcake alone on a park bench — and you endlessly insert that same picture into images filled with cats or a reproduction of Lunch Atop A Skyscraper or whatever—Keanu Reeves will forever be known as the man who started Dogstar and, in turn, ruined it for all other actors to start bands without public outcry and critical mockery.
Lucky for us, there’s a new crop of fresh-faced thespians that might actually be able to shake the Dogstar curse and, dare we say, become both successful actors/actresses and musicians. So take a look—and a listen—at the following artists that are sure to be embraced by moviegoers and concertgoers alike. Keep reading »
You’re probably wondering why I’m writing you a letter when I could just tell you in person, over croissant in bed — or through the bars of my jail cell, whatever — how I feel since we are lovers. Well, the reason is I want to express my feelings to you about an important matter in a public forum, in hopes of gathering support from your legion of vehement fans. Some may be resistant at first but I think once they hear the many points of my argument, they will come around, and so too will you.
The matter at hand is this, my love. I think you should take a break from acting and focus on your music. Keep reading »
I just love starting off my day with a serious Ryan Gosling-induced girl boner. Pitchfork.com has a portion of a documentary about Gosling’s super awesome creepster doo-wop band, Dead Man’s Bones, in which my lover conducts a children’s chorus in rehearsal and on stage. While plenty of actors turned rock stars SUCK, I can say with unbiased appreciation that Dead Man’s Bones RULES super hard. Keep reading »
Last night I came face to face with my number-one celebrity crush, Ryan Gosling. His band, Dead Man’s Bones (which is actually awesome and not like other “actor bands” that suck), performed in New York and I went and acted like a fool. Seriously, I will never mock women acting like idiots at concerts again, because last night I was one of them. In fact, I believe I moaned out loud at one point. I took a bunch of crappy photos with my iPhone, including this one, which was shot just before Ryan and I went into the bathroom and made a baby together. Just kidding. I wish. More crappy photos after the jump and ZOMG IT WAS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE!!! (P.S. This post goes out to Simcha, who was supposed to go too, but she’s been stuck in bed with a case of meningitis. We miss you sister!) Keep reading »
Hey guys, guess what I am doing on October 15? Oh, I dunno, seeing Ryan Gosling’s band Dead Man’s Bones perform in New York City. No biggie. It’s not like I’ve started planning various outfits that might seduce The Gos. [I have.]
Actually, the coolest part about the Dead Man’s Bones tour is that Gosling and band mate Zach Shields are auditioning local choirs in each of the 12 spots they’re hitting to perform with them. Their debut album features vocals from the Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir, but they can’t bring the tykes on tour with them, so they’re giving the opportunity to new kids in each town they visit.
Um, does anyone have a singing child I can borrow to pass off as my own? Email me. [Scanner] Keep reading »
It’s Sunday, it’s beautiful out, and I just can’t resist. Keep reading »
