Best Headline Ever

The cover of the March 2006 issue of Teen Vogue (MY FAVORITE MAGAZINE) has the BEST headline: “Copycat Friends: Is someone stealing your style?” This is the best attempt I’ve seen of adding sophistication to a 1st-Grade school yard conflict. “I’m telling! Stacey’s copying my outfits again! She’s not playing nice!” Teen Vogue, can you […]

Vanity Fair Goes Bottoms Up

Is this Vanity Fair cover really necessary? Tom Ford, Kiera Knightley, and Scarlett Johansson look like weird, blue-toned mutants in this photo. They all look like they’ve been Photoshopped within an inch of their lives. Kiera and Scarlett look particularly pasty, and Scarlett’s body looks kinda pear-shaped. And why the hell does Tom Ford get […]

Jane Magazine Gets a Rock ‘n’ Roll Makeover

So there’s been a lot of buzz about the “new” Jane, under the direction of Brandon “Don’t Let the Name Fool You–I’m Not a Man” Holley, who replaced founding editor (and the magazine’s namesake) the legendary Jane Pratt in August of last year.

Should SPIN Move All Their Eggs to Their Digital Basket?

Has anyone else noticed how beefed up SPIN.com has become over the last year?

Granted, you can’t view a page on their site without being attacked by about 5 different […]

The Strokes’s Interplanetary SPIN Cover

Julian as a used car salesman/Florida grandpa, Nick as Steven Tyler, Fab as Mr. Kotter, Albert as…er…drunk Albert (??), and Nikolai as Lucas Haas’s Amish character in Witness. This is the stuff Strokes covers for SPIN are made of…well at least for 2006. Be sure to check out the February issue (on stands NOW) which […]

Oprah Wants to Know if You’re Gay (or Straight) for Heath and Jake

Woah! When did Heath Ledger get a Lindsay Lohan-scale freckle face? Oh and BTW, rumor has it that Heath will be on the cover of Rolling Stone very shortly. Let’s hope he shaves before the photoshoot. BTW, are you totally gay (or totally straight) for Heath or Jake Gyllenhaal? Well Oprah is looking for you! […]

Adrienne Curry Poses for Playboy

Ok, something for the guys. “America’s Next Top Model” winner, Adrianne Curry (aka- the chick shacking up with Christopher “Peter Brady” Knight), is featured in the February issue of Playboy. Anyone who’s seen “The Surreal Life” or “My Fair Brady” will not be surprised by her decision to be in Playboy. In fact I’m happy […]

New York Magazine Thinks Ben Stapelman Will be Famous…and So Do I

Whatever, transit strike. Even you can’t get me down after seeing awesomeness this morning in the form of New York magazine. Sayeth the glossy mag about Ben: “Ben Stapelman, 19, rock singer. Ben Stapelman’s band, Surefire (imagine early Tom Petty crossed with Coldplay), has built a rabid following on MySpace and now plays sold-out gigs […]
