I am not very good at being a hipster. Sure, I own a few pairs of wayfarers and I’ve been known to see movies ironically, but I’ve never thought of myself as “cool” and I really, really hate PBR (am I suffering from Hipster Denial Disorder? Most likely). Even so, when I plopped all my favorite indie/emo/electro-dance songs into one playlist, I fell in love with the results. I’m sure real hipsters will dismiss most or all of these artists as too mainstream, but you’ve gotta admit–it’s a great mix for getting stuff done around the house or, you know, brooding and illustrating your graphic novel. Enjoy, my dears!

This is so cool: Ellie Goulding solicited photos from fans to create a lyric video project for her new song, “Anything Can Happen,” off her forthcoming album, Halcyon. Fans submitted over 1,200 pics and a great deal of them made it into the final video (above). The song is devine and I love the Instagram-y vibe of the vid. Enjoy!

In Case You Were Wondering, I Still Hate Lady Gaga

I couldn’t feasibly be any less interested in Lady Gaga‘s Vogue cover. Frankly, I’m shocked that Anna Wintour would even go for it, considering that Gaga is so appallingly uninteresting at this point to everybody except her harem of zealots. I would rather see literally anybody, even Lea Michele, on the September issue. Okay, so maybe not Lea Michele, but why not throw Yo-Landi Vi$$er up there if you’re trying to get weird while remaining reasonably attractive and blonde? Have you never heard music before, that you think Lady Gaga is the poster child for, like, counter-culture and originality? Come at me, little monsters. I get that the message she tries to spread is “love and acceptance,” and hear me out: I am not opposed to love and acceptance, but I am strongly, fundamentally opposed to try-hards. Also, people who refer to themselves in the third person. Hate.

You know what would be really different for Vogue? Putting an actual model on the cover or, you know, a woman who can make herself compelling without wearing 10 Halloween costumes put together while declaring herself “a walking piece of art.” Yes, I resent the hell out of Lady Gaga. Whatever. [NY Mag.com]

You guys, it is only Tuesday and I’ve already read a press release about a Fifty Shades of Grey-themed compilation of classical music. This doesn’t really spark a lot of confidence for the rest of the week, does it?

Yes, it’s true: the 15 pieces of music that are mentioned in the books comprisising the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy will soon be available in one convenient place: your car, or your Discman, or your very fancy home stereo system that you’ll show off to all of the vapid women you have over to seduce in your high-rise condo because you think such a thing is an accurate display of “personality,” and because the women you bed are probably into the ideas of entry-level BDSM and fucking to Mozart. (Haha just kidding, that will never happen to you, especially if you own this CD.) Keep reading »

Watch Jessica Pare Sing "Just Like Honey"!

I was already kind of obsessed with Jessica Paré, who plays Megan Draper on “Mad Men,” especially after she did that little French song-and-dance number at the beginning of last season, but now I’m officially smitten. The actress sang with The Jesus and Mary Chain at a handful of gigs this past week, doing a pretty damn good job on their songs “Just Like Honey” (above) and “Sometimes Always” (after the jump). Maybe Megan should embark on a singing career instead? [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Schmoopy-ville: Population 1. That’s me! This summer I’m head over heels for a new fella and as a result most of the songs I listen to on Spotify are pretty happy of late. A bunch of these are ones my dude sent me. A couple are silly pop songs that make me think of him. The OK Go song is because went to an OK Go concert together. The Madonna one is, um, self-explanatory. And Norah Jones’ “Happy Pills” isn’t a love song, exactly, but the lyrics always remind me of what love feels like. Schmoop out everyone! Keep reading »

What it's like to transition from female to male. Read More »

“I’m very early on in my transition – I still blur a line – but I know the changes are going to be coming, and I fear how [my wife] is going to interpret them and whether that will affect if she’s physically attracted to me is terrifying. But ideally you marry someone because you hope that they’re your soulmate, and that’s something that’s beyond gender.”

– Laura Jane Grace, lead singer of punk rock band Against Me!, who has been taking hormone replacement therapy for almost two months and is preparing to undergo gender reassignment surgery to transition from male to female. Since divulging her lifelong secret to Rolling Stone back in May, Grace has been met with positivity and support from her bandmates, fans, and most of her family, although her father has effectively severed ties. Grace’s wife Heather remains by her side. We wish Laura Jane the best as she continues her journey. [The Guardian]

“I actually felt something go pop or snap, or whatever. Whatever it is, it was very frightening. I had to really adjust because it happened in the middle of a show … I had a full check up and [my doctor] said that there wasn’t any permanent damage that couldn’t be restored without rest. So if I keep taking care of myself there won’t be any recurrences.”

– Powerhouse singer Florence + The Machine Florence Welch describes the vocal injury she experienced last week that sidelined her from two festival performances. Luckily it wasn’t serious, but definitely a scary moment. The hardest part of recovery? No caffeine allowed! Says Florence, “I had been on such a caffeine kick up until then. I was fully back on five diet cokes a day and two coffees in the morning. I was really twitching my way through life, but I was completely loving it.” [Us Weekly]
