Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.

Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

This is amazing on so many levels

Tom Berninger is the nine-years-younger brother of National frontman Matt Berninger, and the impetus for the documentary comes when Matt — handsome, successful, the band’s figurehead — invites Tom — a slovenly metalhead with the spirit of a lost Zach Galifianakis character — to be a roadie…

A thousand times yes to everything about this. Love The National, Mistaken for Strangers is my favorite song, Matt Bernignger’s voice is sonic sex..I could go on.

We’re All Winston and We’re All Big Brother

I wrote the following back in June 2013 for Aberdeen Group Blogs

According to the LA Times, sales of George Orwell’s novel “1984″ have skyrocketed in the wake of the NSA scandal. In today’s hyper-connected world, concerns of privacy are never far from mind. The news that the NSA has been collecting massive amounts of data using wireless networks is alarming, to be sure.

Whether or not you think Edward Snowden is a hero or a traitor, he clearly had some legitimate concerns about privacy. Which makes it astonishing how much I know about him. Several media organizations, including Buzzfeed and Gawker, have published some version of the “What We Know About the NSA Leaker” article. He already has a Wikipedia page. So what do we know? For starters, he has a birthday coming up (June 21st, 1983), but since he may or may not still be in Hong Kong, sending him a gift could be difficult. He’s a fan of P90X and Anime. He’s claimed to be an agnostic. Edward Snowden is not a celebrity, but there is an abundance of personal information about him, going back at least 10 years, all readily accessible.

 It’s probable the same is true for all of us. For example, you were to do a quick search through my online footprint you would find that I enjoy falafel, the music of UK boy band Take That, and that I traveled to New Orleans for the first time in June of 2011. You might also find a picture of my dog.

There is no end to online horror stories of people giving too much away online. From identity theft, to teenagers sexting, and politicians who really should know better (I’m looking at you Anthony Weiner and Christopher Lee). There are times when the phrase “Facebook stalking” is literal, and the consequences of a cheeky cell phone picture are dire. It would be absurd to say that we as a people should not be concerned about the data that the NSA is gathering. That said, some of us could stand to take a closer look at how much we’ve given up voluntarily.

According to Slate’s Dave Weigel, a “pretty peaceful” Trayvon protest is underway in DC’s Columbia Heights neighborhood. Buzzfeed’s Chris Geidner is also covering the scene.

I used to live down the street from there, and I wish I was there now. Heartsick over the verdict.

Taylor Swift and Rihanna

Taylor Swift’s video for “I Knew You Were Trouble” is like the Kidz Bop version of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” video. Right down to the opening narration.

Interpol - Obstacle 1


I am feeling so old! Pitchfork is having a retrospective on the 10 year anniversary of Interpol’s debut album Turn On The Bright Lights.

It’s hard to explain what this album meant to me. I’ll be honest, the album came out in 2002, but I didn’t discover it until 2003 when this song was featured on The O.C. Interpol really introduced me to indie music and listening to stuff that was not necessarily on the radio. I used to lie on my twin bed, pretending I had more angst than I really did, and trying to feel as if I could relate to any of the lyrics. Interpol was surly and sexual and ambiguous and undeniably cool in a way that I did not really know music could be. Obviously I had not yet heard of Joy Division, but that is another story. 

Everything about Interpol, and especially their front man Paul Banks, was aspirational in a way that pop music was not for me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Top 40 in the early noughties (still do!) , but I was 14 and I knew I was never going to live the lifestyles depicted in their videos. But I could be surly! I could move downtown! I could wear chique tailored clothing in all black! I could go to endless concerts and call them “shows”!

And so a little baby hipster is born.

How did she fare? Well, I’ve never been surly, and I never moved to NYC. I do often wear all black but only because I’m lazy and have about 6 black pencil skirts. I didn’t go to my first “show” until 2007, when I was 18. By then Interpol were already in decline. My first show was an Of Montreal gig at The Avalon, a venue near Fenway Park in Boston that is now closed. I’m pretty sure I wore khaki shorts, and possibly a t shirt from Hot Topic. Also I was intimidated by basically everyone around me, too much to truly enjoy the show, and I could barely speak to the man at the merch table.

I’ve since calmed down considerably. I’ve been to half a dozen shows in the last year, which I think would make 14 year old me happy.
