BUZZ GUIDE: Warpaint, Justin Beiber’s Criminal Army, and Fist-pumping
It may be that I’m a little biased about this band because a) I know them and b) I spent 2 weeks on tour with them seeing the band play each and every night. Bias aside, Warpaint is a band on the rise. A girl group that’s more punk than prim, the ladies of Warpaint mix jam-like psychedelic sounds with throbbing bass lines and frenetic percussion for a unique sound that is all their own. Touted by John Frusciante and recently signed to Rough Trade, the band played an incredible packed set at this year’s Lollapalooza. This fall they’re going on tour with the XX, so check their Myspace for dates. Also, watch their amazing video for the song “Stars” below:
MOVIES: ANYTHING WITH DREW BARRYMORE OR JUSTIN LONG BUT ESPECIALLY A MOVIE WITH BOTH OF THEM
It should be known that I am a sucker for rom-coms. I own the Hugh Grant 4-pack (Love Actually is maybe my favorite film of all time) and I definitely cried at the preview for Notting Hill. So it’s no surprise that I am puh-retty excited to see this film. Will report back with how it was (but I’m sure I will like it).
INTERNET: JUSTIN BIEBER’S POSSE OF ZIT-FACED CRIMINALS
The Smoking Gun has compiled a gallery of criminals with Justin Beiber haircuts, and it’s awesome. Who knew so many law breakers paid such close attention to their coiffs?
TV: THE AFFABLE ARCHETYPES OF THE JERSEY SHORE
Jersey Shore: Season 2
Bless the cast of Jersey Shore (especially that abdominally-endowed charmer The Situation) for constantly inserting their vernacular into our shared cultural lexicon. From the people who brought you “smushing,” “Ron-Ron juice,” “GTL,” and claim that being a a club full of busted chicks is like being at The Bronx Zoo, I present to you: “Grenades.” The Situation explains:
PS- I miss Taylor from the Rachel Zoe Project, aka TayTay aka CrayCray.
When she said “I’d rather die than go to the Oscars” I realized it’s going to be really empty around here without Tay Tay on season 3 of The Rachel Zoe Project.
FASHION: MULES MULES MULES
My new obsession: mules. Business in front, party in back, and totally chic. Check out these from Opening Ceremony with a tie-dye twist.
(Buy them for me thanks).
