The Marina Abramovic Institute and Pop Culture Dream Collabos!

The Marina Abramovic Institute and Pop Culture Dream Collabos!

After pretty much killing it and cementing her place in history as the self-proclaimed “grandmother of performance art” with her 2005 and 2010 retrospectives at the Guggenheim and the MoMA (the latter of which featured a parade of celebrities basking in her intense stare), it appears that Marina is reveling in her pop status by(…)

The Songs That Sweetly Torture Us

The Songs That Sweetly Torture Us

Everyone knows the special torture that is having a song stuck in your head. Depending on the song this annoyance can range from mild (“Beez in the Trap“) to crippling (“Everything’s OK-o When I’m with Tadeo“). Luckily for the PA fam, right now we have some pretty decent songs bouncing around in our subconscious. Behold!(…)

Do the Right Thing. VOTE.

Do the Right Thing. VOTE.

I’ve been saving up all of these election-related goodies and damn – now’s the time to unleash them all on you! Go vote today, my friends! Here are some bits of voting inspirado from the moving to the silly. ENJOY! Badass: Jay-Z performing “99 Problems (But Mitt Ain’t One)” at an Obama rally: Adorable: Ohio(…)

Insane Video Alert x 2: Jay-Z & Kanye West and El-P

Insane Video Alert x 2: Jay-Z & Kanye West and El-P

Holy crap. Two videos were revealed to the world this week – both of which pleasantly disturbed me in very different ways. First up – from El-P’s TOTALLY AMAZING new record Cancer for Cure – is his new video for “The Full Retard.” (It’s a Tropic Thunder reference, people.) It’s delightfully NSFW and even more(…)

Emojis in Moscow (Roman in Moscow Remix)

The moment we were dazzled by the glory of Aziz Ansari and Matthew Shawver’s masterful emoji remix of “N*ggas in Paris,” PA Melissa and I knew that we had to take the emojis to Moscow for a remix of “Roman in Moscow” by the one and only Nicki Minaj. I can definitely tell you that(…)

Emojis in Paris: Day Maker

So here I was, watching Frank Zappa on an old episode of SNL, bumming about having a cold and reading twitter. What happened next: Aziz Ansari (already famous for his previously hilarious Watch the Throne inspired tweets) BLEW MY F’ING MIND with this emoji “remix” of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ultimate extreme jam “Niggas in(…)

Azealia Banks in Video Form = Today’s Reason to Live

So, I know I just posted about Azealia Banks, but that was when the “212” video wasn’t available online. And trust me, you need to see/hear it. I first thought that “Runnin’” was my favorite AB track, but I was wrong. “212” is the most exciting song I’ve heard this year…maybe tied with “Ni**as in(…)

Computer Love: Our Favorite Links of the Week

Design Love this modernist home by Janna Levenstein. Even more pics! We drool, we dream. We could spend all day perusing the airbnb collections, especially the top 40. Makes us want to travel!
