Ughhhhh... my eyes can't believe it. Rats?!? In the West Village? I thought those weren't allowed there. Only banned to Harlem or something. Anyway if there is anything you could possibly give up for Lent or FOREVER, it should be fast food... at least after you watch this breaking news! report from the CBS NY Affiliate, WCBS. So sit back and relax, prop your feet up and get the popcorn (or maybe a paper bag to vom in)!

I've got another obessesion and her name is Ninja. Well, I'm crazy about Ninja's wild moves and oh yeah, those people who back her up... THE GO! TEAM!
I have been slowly building up an obsession with this band and it has come to it's peak this week. Now I'm gobbling everything and anything Go! Team. Literally. For your viewing pleasure I have linked two of my favorite live Go! Team performances from the 2006 Coachella tour. So JEALOUS btw of anyone who is going to this itty bitty 3 day concert in the Cali desert.
Anyway, Enjoy!!!! Oh yeah... anyone know where I can get a kick ass white dress like that?? I want one PRONTO.
The Power Is On!
Who else loves online music communities!?? LastFM should be apart of your online repertoire. SIGN UP! Above is a screen shot of my Dashboard... basically giving me an overview of the music I am listening to, music I like, music that is recommended to me and music that my online friends and neighbors are listening to. Neighbors are people who happen to have a high musical compatibility to you. So then you can gossip about when your fav band goes on tour, or if there is a secret album release party.
I wasn't too enthusiastic when I decided to join on Last FM, but it was during the sadness of my unemployment and in mid-August I was bored out of my mind online and needed a new site to get me pumped. Last FM is a great place to find new music. I can tell you that I've found 3 of my newest favorite bands on there, CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy), Phoenix, and Tahiti 80. Last FM is a music lover's dream because it connects you to other people in the world who like or obsess to the same music as you. Not only can you listen to the same music as you always have, but you can also find more music that is out there, that you'd never heard of ... EVER.
All in all a kick ass site. My top pick of the week.

According to the New York Post's, Andrea Peyser, Britney must be stopped! Also she has these very supporting and kind words to say about our dear Brit Brit:
"The head-shaving, tattoo-loving, cheap-wig-wearing mother of the year has staged a public yelp for help. An evidently addled Brit has confused the top of her noggin with her privates - shaving her crown as poorly as the sad naughty parts she has exposed with manic frequency."
*Thanks New York Post!

The chk chk chk (!!!) concert was out of this world. I wish my camera's battery would have lasted for me to take just ONE picture.
I resisted going to this concert. My currently unemployed friend who reads nothing but music blogs (YOU BrooklynVegan) quickly went to get the tickets for an all you can drink Jack & Coke party with the band !!! playing.
The band was playing at an undisclosed location and we didn't find out about until the day before. It's was at a place called Shangri La Studios but it was about 7 blocks away from Nassau Ave stop. Once you get there, you show your ID to some bouncer dude who tells you down the alley and make a left. The slushy snowy alley way led to a stairwell with votive candles that led to a huge fire escape and a door. Creepy much? Yes indeed.
Once inside, the band was warming up, the line for free Jack & Coke was long, and there were pockets of people smoking cigs here and there. LOFT PARTY!!!!
After two of three jacks and once !!! started it was insane. Never heard their music before then, and I wish I had... cause after hearing them live could they really sound as well as they did on a CD? Hopefully...
Overall great night... Met some awesome people, danced my lil ass off and got a good buzz... although my friend became Mr. Blackout and the night ended a lil early for us. That's what happens when you drink 10 to 15 Jack & Cokes in an hour and a half.

So I'm going to a !!! concert this weekend. Should be a good time. $16 bucks for all you can drink. I don't even know any of !!!'s music. Another COOL thing, is no one even knows where the hell the concert is located. Can you say, awesome?
btw... "chick chick chick" is supposedly how to pronounce !!!

Thought this would be an interesting article for you all to read. I found it to be compelling in a sense, although I am truly tired of all of this accidentally racial shizz. It's really boring me. Although, one of the comments to this article kills me... the person thought it was Kramer running over a blipster. HAHAHA. Love it.
*Thank BrooklynVegan for the link.

PB and J otherwise known as Peter Bjorn and John have TWO count em TWO shows in NYC May 1st and 2nd, both are at Webster Hall. If you knew what was good for you, you would get tickets pronto. Although, you can hold your horses because they haven't gone on sale yet. When I find out, I will most assuredly let you all know. Right now though, I am trying to focus on getting better (I'm still sick) and preparing for my Pipettes and Matt and Kim show. Yes I know they aren't until March, but February is a short month, and the concerts will be here before you know it!
Connect here to find out more news on PB and J and other shizz.

This past Saturday yours truly went to the MTV Discover & Download Lily Allen concert at Webster Hall in NYC. It was great, I was so close to her, I believe I even locked eyes with her once or twice. It was grand. Pictures are below. I have video of Lily singing, Naive, Littlest Things and half of Blank Expression, but I need to find a way to rotate them, and once I do, I will post those as well. Promise!
The pictures aren't as clear as I wanted them to be, but eh, at least I was there. She's soooooo adorable, her accent kills me!

Dear Lily is in a LOOOOVE triangle. Not really. Supposedly Kate Moss is banning on again/off again boyfriend Pete Doherty from attending the Brit Awards. Lily and Pete became friends last summer when they met at the Get Loaded In The Park festival. Kate supposedly flipped out over some gift Lily gave Pete and now, the most obssessed over model is jealous of a 21 yr old pop star... a big fat HA HA to you Kate!
Funny that Lily mentions Kate Moss in her song "Everything's Just Wonderful." The line being:
If I buy those jeans I can look like Kate Moss..."

Lucky for me I got to jump ship early at work today! So happily heading out 10 minutes before 5, I decide, what the hell, I'm gonna walk down to Bryant Park. It's only 8 blocks down. Those bright white tents made me shiver. The excitement, the clothes, and the PEOPLE, who would be sitting in those little white chairs. I could barely contain myself. So I parked myself on the top step on the side of the main entrance and just hope to see someone that I might know. Alot of "PR girls" are walking around headsets on, looking thier best in their hip clothing, and A LOT of cameramen doing their best to look... nonchalant. After 5 minutes I decide, I'm gonna get home, I've got a special night to prepare for.... and lo and behold.... Ms. Vivica A. Fox. A lot skinnier in person, bigger head than I expected, but just as beautiful, maybe even more. That celeb sighting have given me enough oomph to get up tomorrow morning, go to the gym, and park my ass on that same step again, this time armed with my camera. If I get a sighting I promise to post them. You know how I do!
....my true love gave to me an Oscar de la Renta dress!! Hooray!
I wouldn't mind Oscar, but I would rather go for Cynthia Steffe (Hey girl!). Anything by that fashion genius would be heaven. Now, on to the juice.
Today's shows will include an opening by Perry Ellis, and that is going to be interesting. Isn't Perry Ellis a bunch of Nautical shapes, colors and such?? To each his own I suppose.
Not much to report about the beginning of Fashion Week, but I will keep you all posted as I watch the shows on Full Frontal Fashion. It's going to be a good weekend and week y'allll.
Merry Fashion Week!
