on the eve of the election...

take your mind off all the political banter and check out some OTHER things!

Stereogum has put together their list of favorite bands from last week's CMJ Music Festival in New York. Pretty good list to start from if you're looking for some new, exciting and incredibly trendy music. Note the emergence of bands with the word Crystal in them. Check out the list here.

I recently discovered music legend David Byrne's website and online journal - which is amazing. Many of his posts are of obscure, artistic findings at cities that he is visiting. Though I was a little upset he didn't give more thought to his recent trip to Austin for ACL.

Pink's Pizza is just about to be open at W. Gray & Montrose (710 W. Gray) and oh god is it delicious. Seriously good. Check out their stellar menu.

Lucky for us, one of the most hilarious shows that sadly was cancelled - Campus Ladies - can be seen in its entirety on the Oxygen website (yes, I once watched a TV show on Oxygen - but seriously if you haven't seen this then you must - it's unbelievably funny). A relatively unknown Jonah Hill plays a lead role. Check it out.


New York Magazine has put together their list of the top 10 election coverage gimmicks used by the major networks. Which one will you be watching?

My friend Jenny is hosting a series of upcoming parties centered around the Miracle Berry. It's this crazy fruit that after eating it, your tastebuds are altered and sour foods and drinks taste surprisingly sweet - and sweet things taste REALLY sweet. I went to one a few months ago, and it really does work!
