Take Me Back to Epernay...

All I want today is to be in a cave surrounded by champagne.

The Phenomenal Handclap Band at Joe's Pub

Claire and I had the lovely opportunity to check out the NPR showcase on Tuesday night on behalf of FREEwilliamsburg.

While we couldn't quite detach ourselves from the sexy tambourine-wielding girls in The Phenomenal Handclap Band (wonder if they ever fight about who has the chicest outfits?) the evening was an intimate and enjoyable affair.

You can see all the photos and read the whole review if you click here!

After realizing that I'm not eligible to win Urlesque's Three Keyboard Cat Moon T-Shirt giveaway, I decided to make like @moneyries and order one for myself from Threadless. And pay, like the normal people do.

Except... normal people don't order/wear specialty items like this one. Anyone sporting the shirt pictured to the left should garner immediate respect and a small amount of fear. I can't wait to harness the power!

Where the Succulents At???

So here I am, commencing my mini-garden a full two months after gardening season officially began. Yesterday I spent a charming evening at the Home Depot in Queens, a.k.a. bizarro So-Cal, and was welcomed home by my neighbor who warned me that "all plants purchased from Home Depot suck and will die." Jeez, ok! Thanks. I'm now focused on finding lots of succulents to add some heartiness to my plant family, should tragedy strike. Does anyone have suggestions on good gardening stores in the Williamsburg area?

The Lady Behind @Playboy

All day long I tweet on behalf of @Asylumdotcom, and 90% of my followers think that I'm a bro. I often wonder about my Twitter friends, and if they're in the same boat.

Well, today I had the honor of learning more about the sweet darling behind @Playboy. Turns out, she's also a young lady workin' in a man's world (but having fun with it too, obvi!) You can read the full story here, at
