  • Fan Mail for Evan Petersen: Dark Songs With Pretty Words
     409730416 All the Things!This is my friend Evan Petersen. Isn’t he handsome? He runs this nifty press in Seattle, and he writes zombie poetry and other things horrific, queer and clever. He has a timid greyhound rescue dog named after a character in … Continue reading →... read more

This was obviously a very intense thing for us, but very joyous in many ways as well because he had always wanted to be struck by lightning.” - Gang Gang Dance on losing one of their bandmates.... read more

    270592317 All the Things!Brick & Mortar - Bangs Rare today to find a music video with this much narrative. Wish I’d paid more attention in the beginning of the story. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to watch it again. There’s a ridiculously sexy remix of one of their songs on YouTube. I’m not going to tell you anything about the music apparently. It’s good, trust, or I’d not be sharing it here. Just watch it already.... read more

    270592317 All the Things!Icona Pop - All Night Music Video Is About Gay Balls You know, like with the drag and the vogueing. "When we first started performing we were doing shows in little gay clubs, so it always feels like home when we perform for a gay crowd.  It’s where we can really be ourselves…[All Night] is about finding your element, your way of expressing yourself. It’s about finding your people, your home, and wanting to stay there “all night.” We’re so proud of the way the video turned out because the people featured in it represent everything that song is about. Their story and the way they perform is just incredible, and they’re doing it 1,000%, so it couldn’t be a better fit. From the moment we met all of them we knew it was going to be perfect." —Icona Pop in The Advocate, explaining how they’re latest pop song is about NYC gay drag and ball culture.... read more

    270592317 All the Things!Lily Allen - Hard Out Here Oh I just love this. All the digital effects on Lily Allen’s voice made me cringe. Is she losing her voice, or was that a bad decision in production? Still, 9/10. One point for the voice effects. I’m guessing some Americans will want to talk about her smacking around the more tan ladies in the video. Speaking of, quick, someone send this to Miley Cyrus, with the advice: Take notes.... read more

    721929287 All the Things!theatlantic: The Stupidly Basic Thing It’s Still Illegal To Do With Your Mobile Phone Do you own a smart phone? Do you know how easy it is to break the law using only that smartphone? It’s this easy: After your current contract with your wireless provider (perhaps Verizon) expires, change the software on your phone such that you can use it to make calls with a different provider (say, T-Mobile). There, you just broke the law. That’s right: Using a phone—purchased by you—to legally connect to another mobile network has broken federal law since October 2012. But on Thursday, the lead regulator of the mobile phone industry took a major, formal step to not only making phone unlocking legal—but making it easier, and making it free. This dispute has long pitted consumers and their advocates against some of the major mobile carriers: AT&T, Verizon, and US Cellular among them. Some mobile carriers, including T-Mobile and Sprint, already allow unlocking. Read more. [Image: Reuters]... read more

    270592317 All the Things!Jeremih - 773 Love (Cashmere Cat Remix) Just a moment to spotlight a track that I still haven’t grown tired of, though I’ve been listening to it all year long. It’s everything I love about the direction EDM is going now: a little weird, and a lot of layers. I’ve not yet grown tired of the clever squeeky-bed sample Cashmere Cat uses in his remixes; they add both a touch of humor and sexiness to the songs. I also love how he stretches the vocals in a really unexpected way. When I listen to a song like this, I’m reminded of all the hate folks spew at David Guetta. I don’t hate the guy myself, but I can see where folks who listen to stuff like Cashmere Cat would feel like Guetta is missing something. Sure, this song isn’t anthemic, but it takes the familiar dance music formula in new directions. I think it’s just as satisfying as an epic dance track, the climax may be low-key but it’s still thrilling. And while you can... read more
