Paul Feig Denounces Misogynistic Response To “Ghostbusters” Reboot At SXSW

Since Paul Feig’s announcement of the all-female cast reboot of “Ghostbusters” in December 2014, there has been an unsurprisingly large amount of backlash by mostly young white men claiming the new cast will ruin the old movie simply by existing (that’s not how things work). This has been my favorite laughable “baby man tears” response… More »

This year’s SXSW festival was tainted by tragedy when a drunk driver plowed into a crowd of people, killing three and injuring 23.

Lady Gaga Got Artistically Barfed On At SXSW

Lady Gaga got covered in vomit last night — for art. Onstage at SXSW last night, the “artist” Millie Brown shoved her fingers down her throat and barfed bright green liquid all over Gaga. She was wearing a white apron, so you could really see the green barf. Gaga performed the rest of her… More »


Hey, Ladies Of SXSW, Steer Clear Of This Guy

South by Southwest, the annual music/film/tech/excuse to eat tacos festival, began last week. It’s a great way to see a bunch of bands and network, we suppose, but it’s also an opportunity to make new friends, in exchange for “services.” At least according to one Craigslist poster, who offered perhaps one of the creepier SXSW… More »

The Soapbox: On SXSW’s “Homeless Hotspots” And Trolling For Charity

BBH, the same ad agency behind Axe body spray’s noxiously viral campaigns, have hit the streets of massive internet partyapocalypse South by Southwest this week – well, actually, they haven’t hit any such streets.

Frisky Q & A: Singer/Songwriter Sally Seltmann Chats About Her New Album

The moment Sally Seltmann started to sing at the Presbyterian Church during SXSW, my ears instantly perked up. Maybe it was the sound of her angelic voice in a dimly lit church or her jaunty, delicate melodies that got me.

SXSW Diary: I Came, I Saw, I Conquered

SXSW is officially over. Teardrop. I seriously can’t put into words how much fun it was. My yearly trip to SXSW is important to me. Why? Duh. Because music is my soul. And even more importantly, because I think of it as my annual chance to practice being spontaneous (not my strong suit), to go… More »


SXSW Diary: Does Courtney Love Have Fake Ears?

This morning I’m trying to recover from a musicover. I took in more live shows than my body could handle yesterday, was little bit overwhelmed by too much wonderfulness. Lots of coffee, a Tylenol , and maybe some dude watching should do the trick.

I knew yesterday was going to be the best day… More »
