I love electronic music. I love the sound, the artists, the parties, the people, the scene -- in fact, I'm into pretty much everything about this particular genre of music. But there's one thing about electronica that I'm really, really not into. At all. It's the term "EDM." I hate it.

Anyone over 25 remembers him as heroic single dad Danny Tanner on Full House, or the jolly host of America's Funniest Home Videos. But anyone plugged into standup comedy over the last decade also knows him as the desperately foul-mouthed comic with jokes so vivid and foul he makes William Burroughs ... More >>

Passion Pit began in as a solo project of lead singer and keyboard player Michael Angelakos in 2007. The project quickly fleshed out into a full band that combined a keen sense for upbeat pop melodies with lyrics that didn't exactly try to sugarcoat the complex emotional life and experiences of adul ...

Anybody suing a fast-food chain is news, especially if the lawsuit is petty, outlandish or an obvious attempt at a cash-grab by people who clearly have some time on their hands. The recent lawsuit filed by two New Jersey males against Subway, based on the assertion that the $5 footlong sandwiches ar ... More >>
Denver has been very, very good to some New Jersey transplants -- and now they want to give back to the state where they got their start. From 5 to 11 p.m. tonight, they'll gather at Vesper Lounge, which Frank and Jacqueline Bonanno opened this past Saturday, to "raise a glass and help those in nee ... More >>
Nimrods are everywhere. You can find them at the gym mesmerized by their own reflection, in bars chirping obnoxiously about the complexities of their trivial existence, even on their crusty couches at home, where they seem to be perpetually married to the thrilling phenomenon known as "television." ...

It's not you, Television. It's me.I'm throwing my television away. Actually, I'm giving it to my mother as a consolation prize/parting gift when I move out of her home in a few days.

Here we go again.File this one under any press is good press. So if your band is the background music to yet another excruciatingly long fight between characters (yes, they're characters) Ronnie and Sammi from Jersey Shore, you should be thankful.
American schoolchildren don't know Alaska from their elbow. That's the news today from the NAEP, dubbed "The Nation's Report Card:" Fewer than one-third of students tested proficient in geography in 2010. Education gurus blame a shrinking curriculum -- but that could change in Colorado.
T.G.I. Friday's new craft-beer-soaked Angus steak.T.G.I. Friday's would be so much cooler if the chain would just embrace and enjoy the fact that it's a punchline.

Relax. Its just kush smoke, bro.The Twitterverse is a vast and vacant one, a expanse muddled with one-liners, chunks of internet "wisdom" and lots of inappropriate ass-shots courtesy of certain famous people's wives (we're looking at you, Ice-T and Coco Austin).

Cindi Myers used to be a newspaper reporter, and in many ways, that's apparent in Work of Heart (how about that title, amiright?), her latest. For one thing, it's a "reality-based romance," which apparently means that the couple in the story is based on a real-life couple; more importantly, t ... More >>
As a challenge extended from one bro to another, the call of "come at me bro," often accompanied by an exaggerated "puffing up" gesture, is well known to cultural anthropologists; in fact, the behavior -- famously typified by Ronnie from The Jersey Shore -- is prevalent across the animal king ...

Failure one: no clear objective.On these vast internets, there's perhaps no concept more prevalent than the fail, and for good reason: The well known "pwnge" formula states that fail evidence of fail = lulz.
