Is There Anything Cuter Than Metal Rockers And Their Cats?

Cats? Metalheads? What’s not to love? In the new book Metal Cats by Alexandra Crockett, metal musicians smile for the camera with their sweet pet kittehs. It’s a pairing I never thought I’d see, but now that I have, I’m head over heels for the adorable weirdness that is rockers with their felines. ”I saw a natural connection between metalheads and cats that seemed to be particularly dichotomous with the look and attitude of men in the scene,” said Crockett. Apparently, even the most hardcore among us have a sensitive side reserved just for their pets. Excuse me while I melt into a puddle. You know, a really badass one.

What Kind Of Music Does Your State Listen To The Most?

Ever wonder what your peers are listening to the most? Apparently, here in New York we’re most likely to be obsessing over James Blake. Blogger Paul Lamere works for a music intelligence company, so he examined how a person’s location will impact their music preferences and broke down the data to give you a better picture of what your friends are cranking out of their earbuds. 

He went through the listening habits of about 250,000 users of music streaming services who have a zip code attached to their account. Then, Lamere separated those listeners into states, regions and a national grouping. After that, he looked for artists that have a major change in popularity from region to region, which “define the taste” for that area. Lamere explains the ranking process in more detail on his blog, but the takeaway is that every state has its own signature artist and it’s pretty rad — though a few of the top artists/bands are, well, HUH? Does your state’s top artist surprise you?

dating musicians

A few years ago, I had to swear off dating musicians. I’d been dating them since high school, both casual guitar-noodlers and career musicians who had songs on CW shows and their faces on T-shirts. Again and again I’d fall for the sensitive guitar player who wears eyeliner … and again and again the same patterns would repeat themselves that led to us breaking up. I have nothing but the nicest things to say about most of them as people. Don’t take my swearing-off musicians as a warning, per se. On the contrary, my loss is your gain — the more for you! Just make sure you know these 12 details first. Keep reading »

Nerd Girl Porn: Hot Guys With Banjos

We have substantial reason to believe that Hedi Slimane, designer, photographer, and newly minted creative director at Yves Saint Laurent, lives by the mantra “go big or go home.” There was no question that the former Dior Homme boss would give the historic French house a firm shake-up once he landed the coveted position early last year, but he’s made some unprecedented changes to the très classic company. Like fucking with the name, for starters — just a few short months after his promotion, Slimane announced that he would be changing the universally recognized YSL brand to Saint Laurent Paris. The industry collectively gasped, and maybe dry-heaved a little. Now it seems that the new Saint Laurent under Slimane’s jurisdiction is packaged to appeal not to the elegant, uber-chic likes of its past demographic, but a hipper, more modern audience with retro sensibilities. Read: younger. Keep reading »

Can You Name This Famous Face?

Long before they were cool musicians, most of these celebs were dorky kids just like you and me — and we’ve got the proof. This selection of junior high and high school photos from some of the world’s top musicians confirms that even the most jaded rockstar was probably kind of a dweeb when they were younger. Which begs the question: Can you match the nerdy class pic with the famous face?
