More Music to Snob Your Friends With

If you're looking for a new band to get into, give a listen to the Philadelphia band, Grandchildren.  I guess you'd describe their sound as electro/acoustic (think of Animal Collective or Freelance Whales).

IMG and 505 Games Connect YOU to the Fashion World

Standing with Tim Woodley
From the second that lederhosen-wearing, blonde bombshell Heidi Klum appeared on television, I was addicted to every dramatic second of that visually stunning show, Project Runway. I instantly knew that I needed to drop whatever provincial career aspirations I had so I could follow my calling to become a fashion designer.  About a week later, I dropped those aspirations off at the end of my driveway in a clear plastic bag that also held a very ugly and very broken beginner's sewing machine that was too pink for words.

This week, in an interview at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Head of Global Brand at 505 Games, Tim Woodley explains how a new, interactive game is due to not only captivate players, but also quite possibly reignite the dreams of fashion obsessed people all over the world like me.

Steven Alan Fall/Winter 2011

Today was the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion week, and that means bright lights, big names, and enough swag to drive a hoarder insane!

Right now, all the hippest musicians, designers and A-List celebrities are buzzing around Bryant Park for a preview of this coming season's fashion trends.  

Check out these shots of some the outfits shown in the Steven Alan show.


It's finally here!  The trailer for X-Men: First Class!  
The movie, which takes place in the 1960's, is a prequel to the other X-Men movies, that tells the story of how the line between the good mutants and the baddies was originally drawn.  

I gotta tell you, because I'm a big fan of everything X-Men, I'm crossing my fingers, but I'm not expecting too much!  If this movie is anything like X-Men 3, which was a HUGE letdown, I'll probably throw up all over the theater and never see another superhero movie ever again.  (And this time I mean it, Fantastic Four!)

 For now, I'll spend the next four months crossing my fingers!

X-Men First Class comes out June 3rd 2011
