Wednesday, July 23, 2014 Right Now: Catching Up With Candidly Nicole

Mariachi band twerking, online dating while married, and supermarket wine tasting:  It might sound a little strange, but it all happens on Nicole Richie‘s new show, Candidly Nicole. The ex-Simple Life star is back with a comedic vengeance, serving up life lessons disguised as humor and doing it all in that perfect purple hair. If you don’t usually laugh at TV, you might want to stop everything and curl up with this show. Oh, and because we know you’re as obsessed with her as we are, we snagged an interview with Nicole herself! Candidly Nicole airs Thursday nights at 10PM ET/PT on VH1. Tune in or miss out.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 Right Now: Fringe With Benefits

6b243fe1396744cbcdb1360f5f02a431

Wearing fringe is like walking through one of those beaded door curtains that your one weird aunt still has in her vacation home in the desert. Like that beaded curtain, fringe is multifunctional: slightly protective, kinda funky, and above all else, transformative. In just a few words, fringe is wearable entertainment. We’re suggesting you put on a show.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 Guest Edit: Yasi Salek @ Pitchfork Fest

Meredith-Graves-Yasi-Salek

I go to a lot of music festivals, partly because it’s my job, and partly because of my intense devotion to living in a state of suspended adolescence. Oh also I guess because I like music? Anyway as I mentioned in my previous music fest post, I’ve been to many, many different iterations, from dusty Southern situations to star-studded Indio affairs, but somehow I had never been to Pitchfork fest, the festival put on by highly-respected (and sometimes feared) music blog Pitchfork. Now in its 9th year, Pitchfork fest (much like the site itself) prides itself on featuring a good measure of “next big things”  alongside “already big deals” ; this year that meant buzzy newcomers like FKA Twigs, Perfect Pussy, and Deafheaven played alongside heavy hitters like Grimes, Kendrick Lamar, and Beck. Add in longtime Pitchfork darlings like Dum Dum Girls, Danny Brown, and Sun Kil Moon and 90s cult favorites Neutral Milk Hotel and a recently reunited Slowdive (the first band of the weekend to make me cry but certainly not the last), and there was pretty much something for everyone (except for the everyone who only listens to top 40 radio waiting for that Iggy Azalea song to play again and again, that person would probably be bummed).

I’m no authority on music (I still sometimes spend entire hours listening to that one Lumineers song on repeat don’t you dare judge me), but my personal highlights of the fest were definitely Hundred Waters, a perfectly post-internet cosmic-psych band from Florida that makes gorgeous, emotive music that sounds like what they play in the cool bars in heaven, and the Majical Cloudz set, which despite technical difficulties (i.e their keyboard, the instrument responsible for providing 80% of the music, breaking down completely), turned into one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen, an improvised series of spoken word and acapella renditions of the duo’s songs with audience clapping and live computer sound looping as accompaniment.

Okay now here are some photos of the fun.
