Photos: Pride Weekend 2011
Same-sex marriage was legalized in the state of New York last Friday, the first night of Pride weekend. Way to work it out Cuomo! On a whim my friend Patrick (above) - one of Margaux’s Baltimore bests - came up to celebrate his newly acknowledged right to marry whomever he wants. (And also to sing musical numbers + out-dance everyone at the epic Lauryn Hill-friendly gay bar we went to.)...
Bruce Springsteen on Clarence Clemons →
The Boss remembers the life of E Street Band legend Clarence Clemons aka the Big Man. RIP. This is a slightly revised version of the eulogy I delivered for Clarence at his memorial. I’d like to thank all our fans and friends who have comforted us over the past difficult weeks. FOR THE BIG MAN. I’ve been sitting here listening to everyone talk about Clarence and staring at that...

For the True Blood soundtrack! The show is oddly fascinating and addicting despite the fact that Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer make me cringe on the reg.

Q&A: My Interview with Best Coast's Bethany... →
Yesterday North Carolina became the third state to cut all public funding for Planned Parenthood programs. It’s infuriating. In related news: I email-interviewed Best Coast’s leading lady Bethany Cosentino on her Planned Parenthood benefit show among other things. Read on at the Voice.
Just Blaze - Brighter Days (ReOPENed 3am Mix) Sure we’ve seen hip-hop sage Just Blaze play juke at Santos and break-dance at Fool’s Gold’s XMas party but now he’s turning to dance production himself. Turns out he has a set of his own house remixes of Cajmere’s classic “Brighter Days” coming out on Cajual in the near future. AND THEY ARE EPIC. This is my...
