Lionel Richie’s Bai-Out

July 22nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

The blogosphere has been rather unforgiving regarding rumors that sparked after Bai Ling and Lionel Richie apparently shared some laughter and conversation over dinner at the Santa Monica Viceroy last Thursday.

“Oddest. Couple. EVER!”

“Lionel Richie and Bai Ling? Seriously?”

“Lionel is 60 years old and has been divorced twice – his second marriage ended in 2004, when he and Diane Alexander split after nearly nine years of marriage. Bai Ling is 42 years old, and totally strange.”

If the rumors of a budding romance are true, I actually think they might fit quite nicely together. Underneath it all, she could be an incredibly pensive soul, as reflected by her prose. And a poetic soul, he certainly is. I mean, HELLO:

Could be magical! Even though he can’t rock an accent (at least, not temporarily) and she certainly does with “finesse,” if these two crazy kids can find love in the worst of towns, who the heck are we to stop them?

ROCK OF ASIAN:The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

April 30th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Most of you know of our aversion to the term “shoegaze,” and how we often loathe band names that sound more like sentences–but The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have gently rocked themselves into our own pure and icy hearts. The band is simply adorable, charged with power percussion and gentle bi-gender vocal harmonies, stretching across the speakers like a My-Bloody-Valentine-Jejune-Silver-Scooter-Rilo-Kiley-Rentals power punch.

Well, we must admit, there’s hardly anything painful about that!

Feel the pain here.

Thanks, Jennson!
