There is no one who can make us laugh quite like Los Angeles actor and musician, Adam Goldberg. He speaks his mind in this interview with VBS about his dislikes of L.A. from the cul-de-sac he lives in to bad restaurants in L.A. as well as his best friend who lacks air conditioning and enjoys eating fish eyeballs. He takes us around his neighborhood and stays in character with his deadpan sense of humor. Goldberg is also going to be in an upcoming movie called Untitled, in which he plays a tortured experimental musician who is trying to make it in NYC. →
I absolutely love when the innovation of technology and the beauty of art collaborate on a project together, like the brilliant creation of pazookies, sorta.

Some of the world’s most respected artists including The National, Bon Iver, Wolf Parade, Devendra, Banhart, and Broken Social Scene will be working with the Montreal-based non-profit organization, Yellow Bird Project. In 2006, Casey and Matt- with their indie philanthropy, their infinite awe of music, and their brilliant idea to start the Yellow Bird Project- got things started by getting new artists and bands to join their mission for inter-galactic indie domination. The artists have put together their talents to create unique t-shirt designs to benefit an array of charities, which have been individually picked by the artists themselves. Take a look at the designs yourselves, they’ve got some nice designs and you’ll be getting your money’s worth.

A few years back, Kurt Vonnegut wrote a story outlining his theory behind why he was never awarded a Nobel Prize for Literature. The answer: his hatred for Saabs. Excerpt below, more here.
I used to be the owner and manager of an automobile dealership in West Barnstable, Massachusetts, called “Saab Cape Cod.” It and I went out of business 33 years ago. The Saab then as now was a Swedish car, and I now believe my failure as a dealer so long ago explains what would otherwise remain a deep mystery: Why the Swedes have never given me a Nobel Prize for Literature. Old Norwegian proverb: “Swedes have short dicks but long memories.”

French Vogue must have read my mind because I have been longing for a fashion editorial that combines urban art with haute couture. By far, I am not a fashion expert; this may have been visited before. Outside the world of print, Louis Vuitton launched the Stephen Sprouse retrospective, paying tribute to his iconic graffiti prints. And a number of designers reference street culture in their collections, merging pop motifs with downtown chic. However, French Vogue’s November issue is one of the most bold spreads presented thus far. →
Final Fantasy – “The Donor”
It’s remarkable to think how many musicians we may be overlooking at any given time. In the past decade, there ‘s been revitalized interest in the works of musicians who by sheer misfortune or personal tragedy never enjoyed the success they deserved in their youth. Nick Drake is the most obvious example of this, although some artists, through the interest of famous and powerful friends, enjoy a late bloom →
