Wednesday, July 30, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Avery Monsen Gets Emojinal
Emojis are the lifeblood of worldwide communication. When you really think about it, nothing is more important than expressing your ideas through tiny illustrations of really pointless things. Nobody understands that better than Avery Monsen, a comedian / Vine celeb / really funny author out of New York. Avery’s newest creation, Rejected Emojis, puts all those preloaded icons to shame by serving up such creations as “cool pube” and “a bald man reclines on a giant slice of pizza.” We caught up with Avery the other day and tackled important subjects like smiling red ogres, emoji freedom, and the power of evasive texting.
Tuesday, July 29, 2014 Globetrotter: Mish Way and White Lung’s 36 Hours in Tokyo
Recently I’ve been spending most of my time on an airplane with my band, White Lung, playing shows all over the world. Things have been pretty nice, I’m not going to lie. This past weekend, we played a show in Los Angeles, then the next day got on an airplane and headed to Japan to play Fuji Rock Festival 2014. Here’s how that was.
Monday, July 28, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Nasty Gal x WISF
It’s never good to compare yourself to others. But who said anything about comparing your favorite clothes to your favorite photos? Bianca Luini is the image guru behind Where I See Fashion, a blog that celebrates the similarities between clothing and photography. Bianca has been on our radar for quite some time, but we recently got the Milan-born fashion design student to look through some of our images. And while she was working, we snagged an interview with her, too!

Thursday, July 24, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Lady DJ: Nelleke
DJ Nelleke is a bit of an endangered species: a rare bird of a DJ who still spins using all vinyl only (no computer programs or iPad magic, just the real deal, a hauled crate of records to every event). This isn’t the only thing that makes this NYC beauty special though. Aside from being one of the most sought after party deejays in the city (she has regular gigs at Le Bain at The Standard, and at the Wythe Hotel), Nelleke McCowan is also a go-to choice for all sorts of fashion events, having taken over the tables at parties for everyone from DKNY to Purple Magazine to Refinery29 (amongst a host of others). If that’s not enough, she also hosts her own show on Know Wave Radio, and runs her own unique 90s-club0-kid style game that is so consummately cool it makes us want to give up and take up norm-core.
