Yoko Ono + Friends Make Me Wanna Be a Bad Dancer

When I’m 80, I hope to be strutting around the video set of my new Beastie Boys-produced single with the likes of Cibo Matto, Questlove, Heems, Reggie Watts, Ira Glass, Roberta Flack and Justin Vivian Bond breaking it down along with me.

Non-Guilty Pleasure: Cherry Bombe Magazine

You know those fancy magazines that cost like, $20 bucks and are independently produced, and you think “Jesus who pays that much money for a mag?”  Well, I recently picked up the first issue of Cherry Bombe Magazine for 18 smackers the other day, and all I can say is WORTH IIIIT!

Can’t Wait for Six by Sondheim

Can’t Wait for Six by Sondheim

When it comes to naming my favorite musical, I find myself torn between Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar and Stephen Sondheim’s Company.

Carrie: Birches Gettin’ Slapped Left and Right

In honor of Halloween PA Hillary and I sat down to watch the original Carrie. We were looking for a retro thriller…what we got was a lesson in bitch slapping, pube wearing and blow jobbing. Lesson 1: When in doubt, slap a bitch.  I don’t know how many times people get slapped in this movie(…)

Black Hole Sun: 1994 Apocalyptic Realness

Black Hole Sun: 1994 Apocalyptic Realness

I was at a party yesterday,and “Black Hole Sun” came on…and I got psyched. I was never a huge Soundgarden fan, but this song and video struck a major chord with me back in 1994. The melody and the apocalyptic vibe of the song are kind of Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver (“Someday a real(…)
