Four Loko

"Popular sources (websites that came up when I googled Four Loko) say that it won't be around long. It's malt liquor plus caffeine, and any flavor you choose will taste like chemicals. It's in a can and should probably stay that way, because if you pour it in a glass you will realize you are ingesting neon. Four Loko is also hilarious. It is the closest you can get to literally drinking a bad decision. To just have a sip is not a good choice. There are videos online of people drinking entire cans of this stuff in under a minute and their faces go white immediately. Then they look proud but full of regret. Like they want to say, 'This is my life now.'"

Soundtrack for the Week

Andrew Myers Photography

I really like this one. It reminds me of my cousin Chris and I. What game are we playing, you ask? Mario Kart. How old are we? Anywhere between the ages of 3 and 23.

Shelby DiMarco

I love the collage work by Shelby DiMarco. Her choice of imagery is as much soothing as it is unnerving. This is combined with a minimalistic aesthetic ensconcing each piece in an air of mystery. A set of faceless portraits are especially provocative:

Look What the Light Did Now

Yet another fascinating documentary about the creative process and the interesting individuals who hold its legal rights is on the horizon. "Look What the Light Did Now" chronicles the travels of Feist following her breakout album "The Reminder." After watching the trailer I was immediately wholeheartedly regretful that I missed the Philly stop on this tour. I can't wait to see it!

Luis Dourado

Check out Luis Dourado! His work is like a pop culture acid nightmare. Jump in it. via DFM.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret

I feel like David Cross' humor is hit or miss. Either you love it or you hate it...or you think it's okay. Whatever your stance is, actually if you love it or think it's okay, you should be watching his new show on IFC called The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret. The show is centered around Cross' character who basically lies his way into a job heading an energy drink venture in the UK. Absolutely hilarious. So, who is Todd Margaret, and wtf is Thunder Muscle?:
