Noise and fashion veteran Kim Gordon has started a new line of women's clothing named Mirror/Dash, after her side project with hubby Thurston. Evidently inspired by the cooler-than-anyone Françoise Hardy, Mirror/Dash is being sold at Urban Outfitters, who, by the way, is impressing us more and more lately. Cotton cardigans? Vegan shoes? Thanks UO!
The Long Goodbye
Long-time NoLIta clothing designer Jane Mayle has closed up shop after almost a year full of rumors and speculations to where she's taking her talents next. I keep hearing Banana Republic? Who knows. But, if you're in the area and love her pieces as much as we do, be sure to check out her Goodbye Collection this month. She's re-issuing 10 past season hits for the fans starting today at her soon-to-be-for-real-this-time closed shop at 242 Elizabeth Street (b/t Prince + Houston).
Celebrity Stalking for a Good Cause
Housing Works, the largest community-based AIDS service organization, is celebrating the grand opening of their TriBeCa thrift store with a silent auction featuring clothing and other hot items donated by New York celebrities, designers, and politicians. Ever wanted to own a dress that Susan Sarandon wore? How about pantsuit from Chloë Sevigny? How about a bunch of random stuff form the Housewives of New York City? Well, now's your chance, friend. Now's your chance. Saturday, March 7, 10AM at 72 Warren Street.
End of the day seem way too far away? While away your hours at the office with this genius site—cursebird, a real-time feed of people on the ever-present, ever-sorta-weird Twitter gettin' fed up with the man and generally lettin' loose with the foul language. Suprisingly funny.
I Bet You'd Feel Better About Yourself if You Washed Your Dishes
I remember this one time in college when a friend of mine, who lived in a big house with a bunch of other students, told me about how her housemate, rather than clean the stack of dishes in the sink or talk to everyone in the house about them, wrote a page long rap about how everyone should do their part and clean up after themselves. I wish I had that note, because I'd totally post it to passiveaggressivenites.com, as, evidently, the leather loser from the image above did. One of the funniest sites eva. Although I'm sure we'd all enjoy it more if the creators applied themselves a little more.
Rasie the Roof, Rebel Scum
I don't know that this is real or not, but I hope it is. Someone decided that it was the perfect time to create what is easily the coolest boom box ever seen in this universe, AT-AT style. You know, the All Terrain Armored Transport...from The Empire Strikes Back.... I know so many nerds who would salivate over this. I mean, not me. Not me, man. The best part, as CrunchGear points out: it seems to only play cassette tapes. Keepin' it real, yo.
Is even your grandmother into Animal Collective now? Wow her with this Mexicans with Guns remix of their song My Girls. Who's cool now, grandma? s'what I thought.
