Marc Jacobs Goin’ Down to South Park, Gonna Make Himself a Tee

Edited by

Marc Jacobs returns to South Park, but this time not as “Muscle Man Marc.” The designer has collaborated with Trey Parker and Matt Stone to create three T-shirts featuring Eric Cartman, Butters Stotch and Randy Marsh to benefit The Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group at New York University. Stripped to their cartoon bones with only the charity’s slogan – ”Protect Your Largest Organ” — providing any coverage, it’s clear to see why Cartman is always so…tee’d off.

Axe to Release Anarchy on Men and Women: Scent Goes Unisex-y

Edited by

Axe Body Spray – otherwise known as that pungent aroma that hits you like a ton of oddly-scented bricks whenever driving through Jersey, passing by a teenage boys’ locker room, or dropping it like it’s hot on a crowded dancefloor — was once only the domain of hormonally-raging young boys and men, but the times they are a-changin’. Axe introduces its first women’s scent today, the chaotically-themed Anarchy, perfect for the inevitable end of the world and/or beginning of a nation of questionably-smelling youth.

Indies to Watch: Pattern Is Movement

Indies to Watch: Pattern Is Movement

Indies to Watch: Pattern Is Movement

Last night’s Mystery Concert at at New York University’s Skirball Theater had students in awe and confusion over the night’s opening act. Pattern is Movement, hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania set the precedent for later act, the French Kicks and headliner, Broken Social Scene. So did they set the bar sky-high or embarrassingly low? Well, it depends on one’s taste in music as a whole.

The general description of Pattern is Movement as an American Indie rock band does not do this two-piece musical concoction justice. Exuding elements of Gregorian chant, early 90′s hip-hop, musical theater show tunes, funk and R&B drum beats, the set performed by band members Andrew Thiboldeaux (vocals, bass and mellotron) and Chris Ward (drums), was not for the closed minded. One shouldn’t dare trying to summarize the band’s style, because in actuality, they don’t even know.

Performing several numbers off of their 2008 album “All Together,” the band’s 50 minute set was like watching two grungy grizzly bears fight their way through music history. With anecdotes sporadically placed, audience vocal participation and the band’s liberty to perform shoe-less and talk about man boobs, the show was personal and intriguing for all audience members. 

But to answer the question of whether they killed it or spilled it, there is no definite answer. Some people walked out. Some people gave standing ovations. Some people sat with blank stares. Others danced. And there are those people, like myself, who woke up singing the chorus to “Right Away,” trying desperately to get it out of my head.
