The Kia Soul Collective circus is in town this weekend and ready to rock your dirty socks off at a secret Girl Talk show going down at an “undisclosed location” (read: Pier 94 at 55th Street & The West Side Highway) It’s free, open to the public, and “includes an opportunity to test-drive the all-new Kia Soul,” that isn’t necessarily an included opportunity but more like a pay-to-play requirement.
Yea, you have to test-drive Kia’s hip new wheels machine in order to enter the premises. But between you and me, we both know that’s not the worst thing you’ve had to do for tickets to a hot show.
And what for the drunks, unlicensed, and disabled Girl Talk fans out there who’d enjoy a beat or two on a Sunday afternoon? I’m told they’ll be quietly ushered into the passenger seat and whipped around for a “check this car out bro” ride anyways, which does indeed count for entry.
So, we recommend you check this out. From noon to 7 tomorrow (Saturday), just swing by 151 Orchard Street and whip around in a Kia, and get the critical info to enter Girl Talk on Sunday from 2-7. This might be a rare shot at seeing the guy without a hoard of underage New Jersey mall rats wearing headbands climbing over the fences.
I’ve got a new piece over at Huffington Post in response to the Pope’s latest ungodliness. Here’s a taste:
Perhaps responding to criticism that he’s out of step with the times, Benedict extended his invitation to the rap community using language that is most commonly associated with hip hop lyrics.
“Rappers can be assured that I won’t be hatin’ if they rhyme about ho’s and queers. I won’t be getting up on their dick, no homo,” said Benedict.
Read it all.
And now we can all feel a little less embarrassed to be living in America:
On a more serious note, let’s use our collective eyeballs and find this dirty sum’bitch who’s out there assaulting women. It happened near Diamond Street and Nassau Avenue around 4:30am, and the perp is in his late
30′s 20′s and about 5 foot 9 inches tall. From 1010Wins:
Police were searching for a suspect Thursday wanted in connection with the sexual assault of a 25-year-old Greenpoint woman who was attacked as she entered her apartment building earlier this week.
If you have any info, call 1-800-577-TIPS or submit a tip online.
In the beginning, there was just Phoenix’s official Lisztomania video. Shortly thereafter, someone decided the song sounded like the soundtrack to every 80′s teenage angst-y movie ever made, and the brat pack mash up tribute was born. Then, some cute Brooklynites had too much time on their hands and a nice roof at their disposal, and the Brooklyn Brat pack tribute to a tribute was created. Now, some even cuter kiddos in the Phillipines made a tribute to the Brooklyn tribute.
Where will this Lisztomania tribute video arms race end?
With CMJ comes an influx of young, wide-eyed musicians getting their first taste of big city rock n’ roll, so it’s only natural that they show up expecting bushels of sex and drugs too. But naturally, we live in an age of Craigslist personals, so some are skipping the effort and hunting digitally.
Like this 26-year old “sexy rocker boy on tour from Chicago,” who’s here on tour for CMJ. He wants “an attractive, clean, std free woman” to maybe keep him company at the Newark Holiday Inn.
Then there’s this guy, who is “looking for cute hipster girls with whom to share my soul, or my CMJ PASS!!!!!!!!” What’s it worth to you, cute hipster girls?
Or how about the guy recording PureVolume’s showcase at Collective Hardware? He’s looking for someone to “have a cozy time with.”
And finally, do you need a place to sleep? Are you willing to exchange your company, “perhaps more” for it?
Craigslist is ripe with horny CMJ bros today.
