We Can’t Get Dick Done In This Heat, But USA Today Has Found A Way

July 7th, 2011 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

Y’all. Sorry for the lack of posts recently. It’s hot and we’re bothered, and I don’t mean that in a good way. The same can’t be said for USA Today, which posted this graphic last Friday:

Looks like the sun is about to blow himself, doesn’t it? And, you know, if that’s what it takes to lower temps around here, by all means.

DISGRASIAN’s Summer Reading: La Blogotheque’s Take-Away Shows

August 18th, 2010 | 1 comment | Posted by Jen

We’ll be away from our desks the month of August, carrying on with the non-bloggy aspects of our lives, watching mindless movie blockbusters, and indulging in summery drinks made with generous pours of bourbon. During this month, we’ll be linking each day to a different website that we ♥. Hopefully you’ll discover something delightful and new while we’re gone. If not, you are a serious Captain Crankypants and are probably in dire need of a summery drink made with a generous pour of bourbon.

‘Til September, lovelies.

If you’re a fan of the indie rock, then La Blogotheque’s Take-Away Shows are for you. The Take-Away Shows are video podcasts of your favorite indie artists–or, really, mine–like Elvis Perkins, Yo La Tengo, Lykke Li, and Animal Collective–taking their music out into the streets. The shows are spontaneous and gorgeous, both in look and sound, a perfect way to pass the time when you’re cooped up inside during the dog days of summer.
