What a fun weekend it was for me. And it all started with Shpongle. What is Shpongle? He’s a mad scientist of funky beats and the master of a good time. I’ve seen him once before, and I was so excited to witness the magic again last weekend in Nashville.  Shpongle (Simon Posford) is well [...]

Perhaps I’m slow to the punch, but I never really recognized how purely #awesome (as in, totally hashtag-worthy) Rihanna is.

“Zef: The ultimate style…it’s a full flex, like a full flex. It’s an African style. It’s not something you can really explain.. It’s something you experience; like a video game when you reach the next level, that’s basically zef. Zef is the next level.” –Ninja (Die Antwoord) Die Antwoord is so zef, man. After listening to [...]

Finally, it’s Social Networking for introverts!

If a collection of social networking websites were a high school, Facebook would be the stuck-up girl bragging about her social life, Google+ would be the kid who tried so hard to be cool but couldn’t knock down the Alpha dog, Twitter would be the guy who has to tell you every unimportant detail about [...]

While I definitely get my fill of television, I’m not someone who becomes hooked on the next new show. Sure, I will flirt now and then with “How I Met Your Mother”, “Futurama”, and “Reno 911″ (and a recent “Will & Grace” fling) but I’m not really hooked on any show on the air right [...]
