For those of you youngins out there, let me explain to you the rocking indie impact that the band Sonic Youth had on me my freshman year of high school when I first saw them play. The small room went wild as a bunch of dirty teens half-headbanged, half-moshed to their raw sound. When alternative music was a newborn, Sonic Youth was the band that first introduced me to the hardcore post-punk, pre-emo sound that shaped my musical taste and defined the angsty sound of my generation. That’s why I was so intrigued to hear that Sonic Youth would be performing an acoustic version of “Starpower,” a song they wrote in 1986, on the fifth episode of “Gossip Girl” this season! Under what circumstances will the band appear? “It’s a big event that involves [engaged adults] Rufus and Lily. Just draw your own conclusions,” says Stephanie Savage, “GG”‘s showrunner.

While people have been gawking at the “Gossip Girl” crew that’s been filming all over Manhattan, some of the fans aren’t there to get a peek at their celeb crushes. This guy found his heart drawn towards an unknown girl wandering around the set. Hoping to find her, he posted in Craigslist‘s “Missed Connections.”
I am hoping to find the Gorgeous Tan Girl who was wearing White Pants and an Orange or Red Shirt and was with her 2 friends on 2nd Avenue right outside the Gossip Girl set that was filming. We made eye contact many times and I was hoping you would walk in the same direction as I walked but after turning around many times I finally lost you. If you happen to see this, please email me and let me know if you remember or know who I am or what I look like, etc.. I would love to be lucky enough to take you out for a drink.. Hope to find you…..
Interesting use of caps here! We hope that they find each other. And that they don’t have a relationship as complicated as Chuck and Blair’s. [Craigslist] Keep reading »
Joanna Garcia has Chace Crawford eating out of the palm of her hand as they film a scene for “Gossip Girl.” While she might be a little upset that “Privileged” got canceled, cozying up to Chace isn’t a bad gig. Keep reading »
In mid-August, I always start to get a little wistful about how summer is evaporating before my eyes. But then something happens to remind me of all that there is to look forward to in fall. Over the weekend, it was the September issue of Lucky
arriving in my mailbox, full of glorious fall clothes. And then today, the CW released a preview of season three of “Gossip Girl
.” Enjoy. Now we have to wait until September 14 to see the whole episode. Keep reading »
Leighton Meester was spotted on the set of “Gossip Girl” wearing some very cute specs. We loved her nerdy-chic accessory so much that we figured screw it, we want to wear glasses, too (even if we don’t need them). But we’re not the only ones obsessed with the four-eyed look. The Telegraph reports that ever since the new “Harry Potter” movie came out, the wizard’s signature glasses have been selling out like mad, with one company reporting a 100 percent jump in sales of the round-framed style. And apparently, it’s possible to develop a glasses fetish, as one Illinois man did recently, which drove him to steal $45k worth of eyeglasses. Weird.
After the jump, a few stylish choices for fake glasses… Keep reading »
