2008, for all its Debbie Downers, had some of the hottest dance music and videos! Since MTV won’t play them, WE WILL! From fantastical geometric landscapes to sonic glam ninjas, here are The Frisky’s picks for the Best Music Videos of the Year:
1. Empire of the Sun, “Walking On A Dream”: This Australian outfit is arguably the sweetest current glam band. Their decadence and their dance hooks are so catchy, we actually miss the ’80s!

Over the weekend, The New York Times’ advice column, “Social Q’s,” got a query from a recently dumped girl who just couldn’t seem to cheer up. Writer Philip Galanes pointed out, the proper soundtrack can get you grooving to your own gloom! He singled out Pink’s new anthem about getting back out there after her own divorce, “So What.” He then encouraged the sad soul to sing along at full blast until it became her new mantra: “So, so what/I’m still a rock star/I’ve got my rock moves/And I don’t need you.” Yeah, that’s some solid (as a rock) advice! But Pink isn’t the only one who has weathered the storm after a split. Since misery loves company, here are The Frisky’s picks for beating the blues to get you back in the mood to be your butt-kicking self! Keep reading »

You gotta fight for your right to pink your poodle, or so a woman in Boulder, Colorado learned. Joy Douglas, who owns a local beauty salon, gave her pooch Cici a dye job to match beauty school dropout Frenchy from Grease. She now faces a $1,000 a day fine for breaking a city ordinance which states that no animals can have their fur dyed. Ms. Douglas claims that she only uses natural coloring like Kool-Aid, technically making her the only person older than 20 to use that DIY-kind of hair color. Alas, she has retained a lawyer to aid her as she makes her case that she did the dye-job to raise awareness about breast cancer. As for the puppy, Douglas told reporters, “Cici will be pink until they kick us out of the city of Boulder.” [UPI] Keep reading »
