I heart '90s NY

After blogging Towa Tei's, German Bold Italic, I started wondering about what happened to his former muse, Lady Miss Kier. (What was life like before Google?Hmmm.We could probably google it...) I'm happy to report that she's still "causing it" in NYC. Her website has new and old mp3s, videos and streams of some of her DJing sets. She's also on Myspace. How do you say Deee-Groovy?

Recently, I asked a friend about the whereabouts of another iconic '90s New Yorker, Parker Posey. Although she has had an interesting career as the lead and strong supporting character in many an idependent film, Hollywood constantly casts her as the off-beat or sardonic sidekick who gets little screen time. So, what gives? New York Magazine fills us in on what Ms. Posey is up to these days. Thankfully, it's not just giving people the only reason to see Supermeh.

Since I'm on the topic of icons and NYC, I hope New York is enjoying the beginning of Madge's visit and cracking the Madonna Code. Bitches.

I Believe in Science, Do You?

"The Tree of Life design celebrates the theory of evolution and was created to give a voice to those who favor traditional biology and oppose the growing American support of various forms of creationism." If you like the design and agree with the above statement, click here, to find out more. There's also a myspace page if you believe in science and are social networking inclined.

Is old news bad, if it's still good news? Yes, I am probably the gazillionth blogger to post about Lily Allen. She's a bit of Lady Sovereign, a bit Frente!, a bit reggae, a dash of britpop and has given Gwen Stefani's mashed up sound that not-so-fresh feeling.

Speaking of mash-ups...A-ha + Jay-Z=Brilliant.

Obligatory Hoff

I can just hear KITT saying, "Oh.Michael." whilst rolling his headlights...Apparently not realizing his popularity in America is deeply rooted in 80's nostalgia and kitsch camp appeal, David Hasselhoff mistakes Americans and Brits for the Germans. Also not realizing that Americans have already forgotten his American Idol cameo, for which he looked strikingly similar to Mrs. Doubtfire.

Hot, white hot. Move over Sean Connery, Hoff's a Secret Agent Man....I can't even keep a straight face as I type that. Around the 1 minute mark things get out of control.

Oh dear god. No one is safe. Not even the Jamaicans.

I'm Hooked on a Feeling. It's somewhere between asphyxiation from laughter and nausea. Must be from mentos overload.
