The Best TV Shows of 2010, From Someone Without a TV

I've never considered myself an avid TV watcher. Sure, there are a few programs I hold near and dear to my heart, but there are few shows for which I'd carve time out of my routine to sit down and watch. In September, my roommate and I decided to save a couple bucks and go [...]

Weekend Music Roundup : Chuck Berry, Felice Brothers, Nicki Minaj

Most of the good stuff tonight sold out already. Saturday's major options seem limited to DJ Pauly D at Fur; Nicki Minaj, Jane Jetson's slightly tawnier cousin at DC Star; or another questionably "spectacular" (read: leaning toward just plain spectacle) rapper, Lil B.

Arts Roundup: ‘Smell Like A Comic Book Fan’ Edition

Morning, readers.
*MGMT releases its "Flash Delirium" music video. There's old ladies playing wooden instruments, talking throat-slits filled with eels, and puppets. The usual.

*Diesel is releasing a special Iron Man 2 cologne in anticipation of the film's May 7 release. The bottle is shaped like a red fist, but nerds will notice one particular problem: the [...]

Festival Watch: Jersey Shore and Ultra Music, MusicNOW, Pitchfork

Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival 2010: So we here at Festival Watch have spent some time watching Jersey Shore. And while we realize that it is sort of a pop-culture phenomenon and this kind of excuses the fact that we invested a portion of our evening trying to digest that particular mess, we’re [...]
