We’ve all been to the club or stadium (Bon Jovi anyone?) to see our favorite bands play and thanks to the internet we can hear and download new music, albums and more from our favorite shizz.
But what about live performances? Sure, it’s nice to be able to watch Grizzly Bear play at the Pitchfork festival on youtube but the sound is usually shit and to be honest, if I wanted to watch a live performance of my fav band I would probably just go to their show (unless it’s a priceless performance like that time P.J. Harvey showed everyone her cooter on stage).
The current trend nowadays seems to be cool bands recording songs in unusual places. Think Daytrotter but in a taxi cab.
Here a list of some websites where you can check out video and audio of some of your favorite bands performing in unusual, intimate places:
This is a local
Features some of the more established bands like Calexico, My Morning Jacket, and The Macabees playing in taxi cabs in the
Not a music website per se but it is a cool music project. Created by filmmaker Christoph Green and ex-Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty, the project involves finding a house that is about to be demolished in a random city, getting a well-known musician to curate a show at that house featuring a variety of bands from the area, and recording the performances via audio and video all in one day. The results are released on a DVD which is sold for under $15 on the website. So far they have released four volumes of the DVD featuring performances from

I'm a rare bush shaver but I will on occasion do some landscaping when necessary, and much like topiaries and the Japanese, I like to keep my shit creative:

"I like to look at sexy pictures on the internet. Self portraits especially, because there's a confidence in the best of them that I find really inspiring...
"When I set up a camera to try to take pictures of myself (not necessarily sexy pictures, though of course that's what got me started on this, so let's be honest and talk about those) I don't know what to do. I look at the camera and what? I just try to think sexy thoughts. Which of course leaves me with these pictures where I'm staring at the camera with my mouth half open to say something. Because I'm used to "sexy" being words and I'm used to "sexy" being actions. Ideas that you either say or do that bring you closer to someone else, so that you're both part of the same dirty story for a little bit. I don't know how to tell those dirty stories with the way I look.
"But I want to."

Follow the link above and check it out. If you're looking for inspiration for submissions, or even if you're just looking for a little eye candy.
Personally, I can't wait until Joey joins in.

Maybe it is just my general love for gingers but even with this awful Dorothy Hamill hair cut I would still hit it.
While Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) himself does nothing for me, I was happy to see his teen nemisis, Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) has gotten all tall and skinny, just like I like 'em!
Heeeellllooooo teen wizards!
Don't judge, even nerds need eye candy.

I was going to post some of the best pictures we found in the three back issues of Playgirl that we bought at Fascinations (including one gentleman squatting in only a cowboy hat, boots, AND a bandana with his rifle) but I found this awesome site instead:
Worst of Playgirl features an array of actual photos from vintage Playgirls set to some hilarious commentary ("PUSSY TICKLES just looking at this guy's bristly whiskers!")
So go on and get your fill of 70s staches and hairier-than-thou balls.
If anyone is giving you a hard time, remember:
- Just Say:"I don't want to swim right now because I'm on my period". If everyone present is female, they'll probrably understand. If you're in mixed company, the boys will probably be too embarrassed to give you a hard time about it. (Although you're also perpetuating the myth that a menstruating woman can't swim, or horrible but ill-defined things will happen.)

What are you doing for international zine month? Make a zine! Buy a zine from a distro or a local business that sells zines! Promote zines!
Stolen Sharpie Revolution is an amazing little book/zine that is published by one of the undisputed zine queens of America, Alex Wrek. It contains all you'll need to know on making zines, starting a distro, and getting your zines into distros and local businesses.
Zines are awesome. You can say what you want. It can be personal, political, funny, entertaining etc. It's yours. Use your freedom to publish what you want by making a zine!
Bust magazine (among many others) started off a zine. The Riot Girrl movement started off with zines.
And many great graphic novels and books have started off as zines (Cometbus, Fart Party, Doris, Invincible Summer, etc).
Even the publishers of PoolBoy Magazine all started in publishing with making their own zines!
So get tah making a zine or finishing your zine this month!!

The Grimm brothers knew better.
Dina Goldstein wasn't raised on the sugar-saturated Disney versions of Princesses whose slippers always fit just right and singing chipmunks helped sew ball gowns.
It wasn't until she was older than she saw young girls obsessing over these stories where victimized beauties are relieved from their grief only through aid of a bold, dashing, young prince!
So she did what any good woman would do. She grabbed her camera.
"I began to imagine Disney's perfect Princesses juxtaposed with real issues that were affecting women around me, such as illness, addiction and self-image issues." - Dina
Find more of the series here. My favorite is Jasmine.
My vote is for Daniel Craig in his little blue trunks coming out of the ocean in Casino Royale but there are a lot of other great shots to vote on.

Today the U.S. Senate moved on permanently removing the Global Gag Order (which as we all know is a big ole' fuck you to the rest of the world). News Link Here
This is good news. I hope they permanently ban this rule which is totally lame and uber-unethical.
And the House Appropriations Committee (which oversees and approves all fiscal spending and budgets by the federal government - a very powerful and influential committee) just rejected an amendment to the federal appropriations bill for the Fiscal Year 2010 that would have enabled the continuance of a ban on using local funds to help low-income women in Washington, DC access abortion services. This is a good thing. The ban was a hurtful example of punishing U.S. citizens in the name of partisan politics.
And though Governor "Doucheface" Brewer just requested federal funding for AZ's abstinence only programs (i know, i know, it doesn't make sense, why take away reproductive healthcare AND sex education? It's like a catch-22), this morning, the House Appropriations Committee's subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education (Labor HHS) eliminated traditional sources of funding for abstinence-only programs by passing the appropriations bill for the Fiscal Year 2010. News Link Here
In addition to pulling the plug on funding for failed abstinence-only sex education programs, the bill eliminates a ban on syringe exchange programs, which have been proven to be a highly effective strategy for preventing HIV.
The bill will now face a vote in the House Appropriations Committee and in the full House of Representatives. So we'll see how it goes but at least they are fucking talking about this shit. You can contact your elected representative at the house's website to urge them approve the bill.
here's a link to the full bill (H.R. 1105)

Personally, it's one thing to be against the term because of the popular branding of feminists as bra burning, hairy legged, man haters, but it's another to not identify with the core meaning, which to me is equality and the end of objectification and oppression. I've had the "do you consider yourself a feminist?" discussion with a couple dudes. If they are willing to talk about it that's a plus. None of them have ever said they don't believe in feminism, but a few have said they aren't into labels or think there should be a different term so they don't think of angry lesbians or whatever negative stereotypes come to mind when guys hear "feminism." I think the whole needing a new word argument is a bunch of crap. Why should we change a word because the anti-feminists have done their best to scare everyone away? If people are open minded they will see that the basis of feminism, aside from all anti-porn/pro-porn etc. arguments, is equality and that is hard to argue against. If a dude I am banging or want to bang does have a problem with that then that's a red flag that's too big for me to overcome. It's doesn't mean I won't hate fuck the dude necessarily, but I certainly won't be calling him back the next day. Hey, sometimes a girl gets horny and ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
That said, feminist boys are the best in bed, I think we can all agree on that.

I found this picture on the hotel computer (under the folder Photos) on my trip to Mexico.
Don't know what it is but it's fucking hilarious.
I submitted it to Picture Unrelated which is a great photo blog. The url in the right bottom corner of the pic is from this site, which appears to be Greek.
The joys of traveling!

and speaking of Taco Eyes, Mexico is full of them! I am currently obsessed with this taco eyes, who I met while down in Hermosillo:
Hello! Yeah ladies, Taco Eyes!
I think you can apply the label Taco Eyes to just about any dude that goes in your Boner Jamz file, so go crazy on the taco eyes ladies.

1) Pantyliners - Our tried and true pick-up lines guaranteed to remove panties.
Which leads to a lot of wasted work time and a lot Spock related pantyliners:
"I wanna rock Spock."
"Let's Warp 9 to my room."
"I've got an open port that needs a deep docking."
"I'd like some Vulcan in me."
"You can U.S.S. Enterprise... all over my face."
"I'd like to Bone you in medical." (more of a McCoy joke, but IT STILL WORKS)
"You won't fail my Kobayashi Maru."

Hmm? What's that you say? "What are dick cookies?" Well they are exactly what they sound like. DICK. COOKIES.
Personally we like to call them "cockies" but either way, sometimes you just gotta eat some cock. Especially sprinkled with a little sugar. Or pink and covered in chocolate sprinkle pubs.
Our good friend JDLC likes his covered in gooey white goodness.
Mmmmmmm. Yeah baby.
Keep checking back for our new series - Boys Eating our Cockies. Hot.
