If you live in New York, if you own an iPod, or if you’ve ever harbored a secret desire to ride the Cyclone drunk after scarfing down a couple of Nathan’s Hot Dogs, then odds are you’re going to be at the Village Voice Siren Festival this Saturday afternoon. With acts like The Scissor Sisters, The Stills, Art Brut, Priestess and Stars you’d be crazy not to go.
Well, if you’re not able to make it, don’t worry, we’re holding a contest so you can win some fun stuff from a couple of Siren bands. Send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of the day and you’ll be automatically entered to win a signed Art Brut CD, some Art Brut singles, a signed copy of Priestess‘ “Hello Master” and we’ll even throw in a T-shirt from Tank Theory brand clothing. Not too shabby.
So email us now. Make sure you include your address so we know where to send the swag. We’ll pick two lucky winners at random at the end of the day today. Good luck!
Winners chosen! Thanks to everyone who entered.
When I saw that dg dropped this Nintendo Zidane Game I got a little *too* excited. All I want is a fun flash soccer game where I can run around, kick a ball, and headbutt my opponents at will. Is that too much to ask for?
This little Nintendo animation is a tease. Yes, it’s cool to see the little bald 8-bit Zidane leap from the ground and headbutt another player in the chest, but it can only satisfy me for so long. Has anybody come across a real Zidane game? If so, Drop It now!
Update: Gorillamask has a link to a bunch of hilarious Zidane gifs. However, the quest for the game goes on…
Well, after years of portraying winking teenyboppers, Lindsay Lohan appears to have finally found a role she can really sink her teeth into. These pictures were taken on the set of her latest film, Georgia Rule. Check out a few more after the jump – including one where she “washes it down” with a refreshing Diet Coke – then leave your captions in the comments!
Okay, let’s say you’re on an airplane – a commercial jetliner like the ones you’ve probably flown your entire life. And let’s just say that somehow, for some reason, someone elected to put a whole bunch of deadly snakes on this plane with you and said snakes managed to get loose, thereby posing a terrifying and lethal threat to you and your fellow passengers. And now let us imagine that Samuel L. Jackson also happens to be aboard this plane, and that he is the only passenger who can possibly save you from those motherf*cking snakes. And suppose all this hypothetical intrigue is being filmed for use in a summer Hollywood movie unsubtly titled, Snakes on a Plane. Well, if this were all to actually happen, the one thing you would really need is a corresponding music video from a band who just happens to be named after a deadly snake, as well as some sort of aircraft (say…Cobra Starship, for example). And the song in that video should probably be called, “Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)”. Oh, look…

The fearless investigative journalists over at TMZ have blown another hole in the case against Suri Cruise’s existence by uncovering some shocking – shocking! – discrepancies between the birth certificate of Suri and the birth certificate of Brooke Shields’ daughter, who happened to be born the same day. Supposedly the same registered nurse signed both documents, but neither of which bears her official license number, thereby casting doubt on their authenticity. There’s too much brain-bending information and irony at play here to even attempt thinking too hard on it, but evaluate this latest evidence and form your own opinions on whether or not it should be taken suri-ously (suri, I could help myself. Okay, I’ll stop now.)
