Yesterday was a pretty bizzy day for me, filled with a bunch of fun stuff. Yesterday afternoon, David hosted a panel discussion called Feed Me hosted by Social Media Week. As one of the co-founders of Pop-Up Pantry, he was asked to moderate a panel discussion about how social media changes the way we talk about food. As you might expect, he did an amazing job and made me very proud. Last night, Darion and I made our way out to Pomona, CA to see Alanis Morissette in concert. Again, as you might expect, Alanis put on an amazing show. It was a bizzy Wednesday for sure but also a really fun one. More »

If you’ve been watching Emmy Award-winning Louis C.K.‘s comedy Louie on FX, you’ve already met the awesomeness that is Parker Posey. She appeared on a few key episodes this season (she’s also been on Parks And Recreation, New Girl, and The Good Wife) but the actress is anything but a newbie. She’s been acting professionally since the early 90s and she’s got one of those names you always hear, even if you can’t put a face to it. Trent has professed his lurve for her in various movie reviews and after watching the trailer for Price Check, I’m thinking this actress could easily become one of my faves. The new indie workplace comedy looks so effing good, I’m literally counting down the days ’til the VOD release. Peep the video to find out how awkward things get when you mix business with pleasure…
Price Check opens on VOD October 11, before its theatrical release on November 16.
Azealia Banks recently got into a beef with DJ/producer Munchi, who blocked the release of Esta Noche, which would have been her next single. Some kind of drama popped off and Munchi took to Twitter, claiming he’d never been asked for permission by Banks or her camp to use the beat on the track. However, a lil’ Twitter beef never stopped Azealia and she’s got some fun new visuals for us via Luxury, also off her Fantasea mixtape. The last time we saw a video from Azealia, it was for the awesomeness that was 1991, the title track from her EP. That video was so cool it won the coveted PITNB Pinkie for video Most Likely To Make You Go To YouTube And Look For The Black Box ‘Everybody, Everybody’ Video. Although I think I prefer the 1991 video, Luxury has a really fun vibe to it as well. Plus, Azealia‘s rocking a cowboy hat and suspenders. What more could you possibly want from a video?

Our beloved Taryn Rider is back with the best interview ever! Okay… I’m exaggerating a teeny bit. But she is sitting down with Rebel Wilson who is my absolute favorite, favorite, favorite anything in the world, lol! So far we’ve gotten to meet Adam DeVine and the Treblemakers of Pitch Perfect, along with Anna Kendrick and the Bellas. It’s been a a good time… and now Rebel is here!!! Rebel was one of the highlights of the MTV VMAs, recently/hilariously guest-hosted Chelsea Lately (and talked about her fave show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo), and she’s cracked us up every time we’ve watched the Pitch Perfect trailer. And for that, we thank her. Peep the video for more!
Oh, and pleeease tell me you saw Rebel‘s knuckle rings at the beginning of the interview! She is perfection.
A little while back we got to see Kristen Stewart‘s new Balenciaga ad, as the actress officially became the face of Balenciaga‘s perfume Florabotanica earlier this year. The fashion house, founded by Basque designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, just had its Spring/Summer 2013 ready-to-wear showing at Paris Fashion Week and Kristen Stewart was in the building. The actress (who may or may not be back with Robert Pattinson) was all smiles (with the occasional grimace, lol), rocking a yellow Balenciaga leather jacket, some funky leather ankle boots and floral jeans. Between her look and that insane Karlie Kloss photo shoot, I’m thinking leather is officially in. Photogs also caught the eternally gorgeous Salma Hayek and her husband, French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault heading into the event. Pinault is CEO of PPR, a major fashion company which owns Balenciaga (they also own or part-own Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Boucheron, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Bottega Veneta, and others… in case you were curious about how one becomes a French billionaire). Peep the gallery for more!

Have you ever not been able to click on a link quickly enough? Lol, that’s what happened five minutes ago when Hypetrak had this new Frank Ocean jam all up in my Facebook news feed. How is he already dropping new music and I still haven’t recovered from the Pyramids video (which recently won the coveted Summer Music Video Pinkie Award for The Best Stripper Video That Also Re-Defined The Stripper Video That Also Induced The Most Philosophical, Cultural Analysis From A Reader)???!!! Well he is. And Blue Whale is a very mellow, almost mournful track with some brilliant lyrics. In one of my fave lines he shouts-out his hometown New Orleans: ‘and my passport’s buried/and my hometown flooded/wit jus a lil’ bit of water/but my shoes still muddy.’ I wasn’t sure if I loved the song at first; it’s got a lazy sort of feel to it and Frank’s flow wasn’t quite catching me (there’s a lot of jumping around, lyrically), but it’s been on repeat for some time and I’m getting into it more… and by ‘getting into it more’ I mean ‘possibly on the verge of tears.’ Take a listen! Are you feelin the new jam? Oh, I also really like that Frank Ocean is reminding everyone that he is a Hip-Hop artist, among other things.
