Oh the shame
Which is probably a good thing, since she’s barely made it to 30.
Many of my friends are estatic over Ms. Spear’s new album, which dropped today. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I’m sure as soon as the first single hits z100 tomorrow morning I will be bopping in my car, ready to hit the floor.
That aside, I am not in the least bit excited for yet another Britney album. Remember when in middle school listening to Britney made one the object of ridicule because everyone knew she had no creative input? Somehow the nostalgia factor has buoyed her past three albums to success and she’s back at the top of her game. Granted, she does have a bit more input to the entire creative process, but she’s still making straight up pop music. I get my fill of that on the radio, thanks, no need to purchase.
So congrats to her producers, managers, wranglers, stylists and choreographers for building Britney 2.0, the version that loves to have sex. I only want to be listening if there is a cran vodka in hand, strobe lights overhead, and I’m rolling six deep with my gays.

I spent a decent amount of my morning watching videos from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, a group I had resisted listening to because their name sounds like something my mother would enjoy listening to (aka tortured me with) during … Continue reading
Recently, a friend (Mr. Culture) posted this on his wall:
Reviewed some leaked versions of the “Monster” video. The whole thing is full of dead white models. Kanye is OBVIOUSLY trying to say something. This is becoming a striking trend throughout all of his imagery (including the album cover). Been doing a little research on this- trying to piece together some thoughts and articulate what I think its about… but help me figure this out if you’ve also noticed.
I’ve definitely noticed.
Mr. West has been doing a lot of commentary on the price of fame via his G.O.O.D. Friday tracks, Runaway film and of course, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
There are some obvious statements here: With fame comes an absurd amount of power, probably more than one person should ever posses. Our society has an inexplicable need for expensive things, as impractical as they may be. Sometimes, people are douchebags.
But still, what’s with all the dead white chicks?

He was legit a General, but this jacket is SO MCR
is a hipster douchebag. Created the democratic party. Was oddly reminiscent of Sarah Palin.
Welcome to my incredibly outdated and completely irrelevant review of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, which ends its Broadway run today. This is gonna be long and meandering, so for anyone who believes a blog post should run under 300 words, be content with the fragmented statements above. Continue reading

LOOK AT MY PECS. COVERED IN THE WATERS OF THE PACIFIC
Dear God is this show terrible. I mean, I could have told you that after the second time I saw Daniel Dae Kim’s beefcake stare roll by on a city bus, but due to my mother’s penchant for crime procedurals and my choice to carve pumpkins in the living room I had no choice but to watch an episode.

David Tutera, you've created a monster
Yesterday was supposedly a big day for weddings, the date 10/10/10 signifying the couple in question would have a “perfect 10 marriage’. Accordingly, I was going to post a feminist rant about the capitalist drive of the wedding industry, how absurd receptions are and complain about the ongoing myth of the perfect wedding dress.
But who the fuck am I kidding, I love this shit.
Thought I would attempt to do what this blog was founded for, and review whatever piece of cultural irrelevance I happen to have recently viewed. Although there are plenty of legitimate reviews out there, I feel the need to add my two cents on the newest movie about how being a virgin at 17 seems like the WORST possible fate, more succinctly known as Easy A.
