I actualy won tickets to this event but can’t go! First one to comment on this blog entry gets added to the list! For real.
Also, you can download Rocktapussy’s new ’09 Mixtape for free here. Featuring: He Say She Say, Silverghost, Flosstradamus feat. Caroline, CSS, Tegan & Sarah, Audio Bullys, Alphabeat, Seelenluft, Prairie Cartel, Kaiser Chiefs, Solid Gold
In a concept as classy as their name, adorable DJ tandem Rocktapussy (Jessica “A-Cup” Gonyea and Chess “Mother” Hubbard) are hosting SPANDEXXX! at Sonotheque later this month with He Say She Say and Silverghost. (Don’t bother trying to read the font on the flier).
So… um, if you’re dressed in 70% or more spandex you get in free. If you RSVP at UR Chicago, you get in for 5$. You can also win free tix by using brain power over at Venus Zine.
Considering what a Spandex ensemble will cost you at American Apparel (and all the friends you’ll lose in the process), I’ll take the 5$. Also please note; while accessories will make your outfit “pop”, be careful not to over-do it and drop below the 70% spandex requirement.

Gotta a tattoo of a State? My boy Tim’s just created a Flickr pool that’s trying to compile tattoos from every state in the union — cleverly called “The Statoos Pool”
BTW, Tim’s already got Wisconsin covered…
Oh, and if you just have a tatoo of a rectangle, I’m sure Time could find some Great Plains/Mountain Time state that it will accomodate.

It’s on URChicago here, but I thought I might share…
In what sounds suspiciously like the beginning of a David Lynch film, Canadian Mounties are baffled by the appearance of not one, not two, but six separate severed feet–all clad in sneakers, that have washed ashore outside of Vancouver.
According to BBC News some guess it’s from a plane crash, some say it’s the Mafia, some think it’s floated all the way east from the 2004 Asian tsunami, but one thing’s for sure: it’s freaking creepy.
None of the shoes (nor DNA of the feet within the shoes) have come up as a match so far — I guess they’ll just have to wait for the other one to drop. *Rim Shot* Thanks, I’ll be here all week. -Brian Battle

I have a mild obsession and strong affinity for Microsoft’s barebones “Paint” application. Found on all Windows OS computers, but oft neglected, the program forces you to take advantage of the advantages it has (streching pixels obsenely wide), and improvise with the features is lacks (layers, masking, photo-editing, history brush, almost everything else).
Here are some of my favorite MS efforts:
