Re: Filipino Indiepop Scene Free Mp3 Compilation Series

There are, actually. Apple Orchard , Camera Shy / Scattered Pearls are from the Bay Area; half of The Jealous Sea is a Filipino, too, and they're from Florida. :) Yeah, there's also two Filipinos I think, in Land Of Ill Earthquakes. And the guy who runs Twentyseven Records, Clyde is Filipino. Raoul...

Re: anorak loves new york

Did anyone see Los Campesinos for free at Soundfix? It was a pretty fun show. I'm seeing them again on Valentines Day! Some suggestions for things to do off the top of my head: - Beacon's Closet (Williamsburg): Kind of over-hyped, but I always find something when I'm there. - Alice's Teacup (locatio...

Re: The painfully clichéd librarian..

I'm interning at the New York Public Library (the one with the lions!) this summer. I've always seriously considered becoming a librarian. You know, if the whole Pulitzer-Prize-winning-author thing doesn't work out. I'm beginning to think I've embraced the new wave librarian stereotype too far, as I...

Re: Down South

Woo, Texas! I go to school in Brooklyn, but I've lived in Houston my whole life. I also go to Austin as much as possible, and I spent one horrible year in San Antonio. The only time I went to Dallas was to see Jens Lekman, and I spent a few hours in Denton as well. There are quite a bit of ex-Texans...

Re: "Baby you got a stew going!". An Arrested Development Thread

Buster reminds me so much of my younger brother. I could totally see him dating Liza Minelli. Secondary characters that I hope make cameos in the movie: Annyong, Steve Holt, Lucille Austero, White Power Bill, Bob Loblaw, and Carl Weathers. And maybe Mrs. Featherbottom. A few weeks ago I saw David Cr...

Re: True Blood

I watched up to Episode 9 during Thanksgiving break, and I'm hooked, though reluctantly so. I fast forwarded through a lot (The scene where Bill kills a vampire right in front of Sookie, drenching her in blood and causing the other girl to barf -- yeah, a bit much.) and I'm still not too keen on the...

Re: General Chat About Films And That

Haha, I paid $12.50 to see Twilight, plus $2.50 for candy. I was robbed.

At the very least, I got to see Edward Cullen dazzle. And by "dazzle" I mean "rip off his shirt to reveal a bunch of sparkly .gifs reflecting off his chest."

Re: xoxo Gossip Girl

Blah. Last night's episode was pretty boring. I can't even recall one outfit that Chuck wore... which speaks volumes about how bored I was. Also, during the final montage when Serena and Aaron are laughing on the bed, is she telling him about her past? If so, tales about drunkenly sleeping with your...

They were filming around Brooklyn the other day, and I got to meet them, along with Kristin Schaal (Mel)... who is quite possibly the sweetest person ever. They shot several scenes, one of which involved Brett wearing a kilt and checking out girls while holding a zucchini. Jemaine is actually quite ...

Re: xoxo Gossip Girl

I couldn't stop laughing when Jenny didn't even TRY to stop Caitlin Cooper from burning her clothes. When she screamed "YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR MIND!!" it reminded me of the time Marissa Cooper dumped all those deck chairs into the pool. Wonderfully melodramatic. And yeah,I loved Wallace Sean/Cyrus Rose/...
