This is exactly how we'd like our world to look when we go out on Friday nites.
  • Holy Fuck - Lovely Allen

    I have flown in the rocketship. I have been shot out of the rocketship. I have landed in the water. I have seen the underwater cities. I have broken the surface. I have caught my breath. Big build and release dynamics from half organic, half electronic bands rule.

  • Excepter - Kill People

    OK, not what you think, but twisted just the same. Excepter seem to have a knack of being disturbing at whatever they do but instead of pain this vid comes with some awesome visuals.
  • Gonzales - Working Together

    Not sure why there isn't more buzz around this song. The choreography is nuts, the beat is silly (but fun silly) and the lyrics ("If I get cranky/then I get spankings"?!?!) are a perfect song trifecta.
  • Yelle - Je Veux Te Voir

    More dancefloor/club heat from Yelle....she also brought the sexy on this video too. Her new CD drops April 1.

  • Al Jaffee for Mad Magazine

    Al Jaffee for Mad Magazine

    Al Jaffee has been illustrating for Mad Magazine for longer than most of us have been alive. He is especially well known for his "fold-ins" on the back page of the magazine. The NYTimes put together an interactive retrospective of Al's fold-ins, for those of you needing a lesson on how to acheive the quality.
  • Luella Love & Peace

    Luella Love & Peace

    I grew up surfing and that's why I'm so stoked on the "Love & Peace" collection for O'Neill by fellow surfer Luella Bartley. With everything you'd imaginably need on a beach excursion (not just clothes, there's even an actual surfboard) you can bet these pieces will be hot for summer. What's making this even cooler is that they asked Lovefoxxx from CSS to model in the ads!
  • Victoria Mason

    Victoria Mason

    Write on: Australian artist Victoria Mason puts her love of pencil shavings to good use, casting them in silver.
  • Anna Wintour

    Anna Wintour

    Never question Anna Wintour. Love her or hate her, you have to admit she's had her act together from the get. Just sayin'.
  • Fixed NYC Party @ WMC

    Fixed NYC Party @ WMC

    The crazy huge Fixed (NYC) Freakout at the 2008 Winter Music Conference is tomorrow nite at Studio A (60 NE 11th Street). Resident djs Dave P and JDH are your hosts and the rest of the line-up is nuts: Riton, Radioslave, Boys Noize and Erol Alkan, plus special live performances from Gui Barrato and Simian Mobile Disco. Get there.
  • Bérangère Claire

    Bérangère Claire

    With her perfected deep v-neck tee and an emblem that will excite me every time I see it stitched in, I am in love with the french designer Bérangère Claire!
  • Muxtape


    Within two days of launching, the guy who runs Muxtape had to upgrade his servers to handle the overwhelming response. Hardware-chat aside, it's one of the simplest and best digital mixtape apps we've seen to date.
  • Philadelphia Record Fair

    Philadelphia Record Fair

    Get ready to get your fingers dusty this Sunday as Vox Populi is hosting the Philadelphia Record Fair at the UPenn Rotunda. There will be up to 50 vendors there with special attention being paid to collectible vinyl (geek alert!). It's located at 4014 Walnut, it's free to the public from Noon-6pm and $10 early admission from 10am-12pm for all you obsessives. Happy hunting.
  • SXSW Style

    SXSW Style

    What did you wear to SXSW? Jennifer Perkins of the Naughty Secretary Club blog chronicled the everyday wear of festival goers and caught lots of well dressed girls. Personally, Alison from The Kills had my favorite look going and not just because we have the same jeans.
  • The Big Sad

    The Big Sad

    Barry McGee and Clare Rojas continue their tradition of reflecting the streets via folky, homespun visuals at their new exhibit The Big Sad. It opens this Sunday night at the RAM.
  • Cassandra Rhodin

    Cassandra Rhodin

    Cassandra Rhodin seems to understand what many people do not. You need a boombox to make sexy dancing. Check out more from Cassandra, plus other great artist series tees here.
  • Kate YSL Photoshoot

    Great behind the scenes footage of the latest YSL ad campaign featuring the flawless Kate Moss.
  • New York Tyrant

    New York Tyrant

    The New York Tyrant, a literary "mag" dedicated to the short story, is on it's 3rd issue, with a 4th "all ladies" issue planned for the Spring. Behold what appears to be their mission statement: "Fiction is not only a way of expressing the element of truth in a culture, but is the means of creating it, providing a springboard from which "that which is" can be revealed. Works of fiction are not merely representations of the way things are, but actually produce a community's shared understanding. Each time a new fiction is added to any culture, the meaning of what it is to exist is inherently changed." Hey, nobody ever accused us of not wanting to expand your mind.
  • Foreign Service

    Foreign Service

    Tomorrow night at the 700 Club, Eastern Europe will be on blast. Al and Laris are your selectors, and they'll be running thru Gypsy, Slager, Balto, Slavic, Turbofolk, Eurowave, Panasian and more. Doors at 10.
