Arts Roundup: Our Heads Hurt Edition

Happy Wednesday, D.C. Remember, as elated as you might still be from last night's Lady Gaga concert at the Verizon Center, it's probably best to change out of your latex costume before heading to work today, but funnier if you show up still in little monster dress. The Post's Chris Richards has the early recap [...]

The Quick Guide to Lunchin’

Head-Roc used it conspicuously last week. Tabi Bonney promises that he'll ask Lady Gaga why she is doing it so hard. YU and Oddisee titled a track with it. It is "lunchin' " or "lunching," and it is old in the DMV.  But it is eminently useful and still quite awesome, in the way that [...]

Five Books I’d Read

in which the author discusses five books he'd read, if time permitted.

1. Anglo-Spanish Rivalry in Colonial Southeast America, 1650-1725, by Timothy Paul Grady.
I was having dinner (or was it lunch?) the other day with a friend. We had sushi (unless, maybe, we had Mexican). After lunch, we went for dessert (cupcakes? Or was it [...]

This Weekend: Queering Sound at Pyramid Atlantic

Despite what VH1 might suggest, there is more to queer music than Lady Gaga. In fact, some LGBTQ artists are motivated by their own less-than-mainstream status to push their music into some unusual places. The Triangle Artist Group in the Washington-Baltimore area knows this and celebrates it annually with a gay-friendly, avant-garde fest called [...]

Arts Roundup: ‘Words Of Wisdom From Nomi Malone and Jessie Spano’ Edition

Morning, readers.
*Elizabeth Berkley plans to write a self-help book to help boost young girls' self-esteem. Presumably it'll skip the whole section about doing a movie where you snort coke, have sex in a pool, and push the lead showgirl down the stairs so you can take her place in a topless Vegas extravaganza. Though hopefully [...]

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 [...]

Arts Roundup: ‘Can Jennifer Love Hewitt Even Read?’ Edition

Morning, readers.
*L.A. Police are looking for Suge Knight, who stands accused of robbing a rapper named Yukmouth. It's hard to believe that the chief of Death Row Records could be a suspect in such a crime. After all, he has such a clean record with no accusations of dangling people over buildings, [...]

Morning Roundup: Pink Floyd, Quentin Tarantino, and Lindsay Lohan Lawsuits Edition

Morning, readers.
*Pink Floyd takes action against its record label, EMI, over a dispute for online royalties. EMI should know by now: "How can you have your pudding if you don't eat any meat?"
*She & Him release their newest school-themed music video for "In the Sun," further proving my theory that M. Ward looks like Robert [...]

Festival Watch: Free Stuff at SXSW, Lollapalooza, Big Ears

SXSW 2010 (the free stuff): OK, so we know that we’ve been writing a bunch about this thing. But, we figure it’s a big festival—and besides, today’s take isn’t for the official badge-buying set. Nope. We’re bringing back the SXSW talk to tell you about the wide variety of sort-of-associated free shit that goes down [...]

Arts Roundup: Courtney Love Still Messed Up, Jay Leno Still Screwed, Sky Still Blue Edition

Good morning (or night), hungover Fat Tuesday-celebrating readers.
*The 30th annual Brit Awards aired last night, garnering awards for Oasis, Jay-Z, Robbie Williams, Florence and the Machine, and Lily Allen. The night's biggest winner was American favorite Lady Gaga who scooped up all three awards she was nominated for: Best International Newcomer, Best International Female, and [...]
