Everyone else with two X chromosomes, just give up now, I guess?
Beyonce and Jay-Z Are Pregnant! -- Vulture →
So yeah, I’m extra-glad I saw her last week now. Also: this is amazing. Also also amazing: That they clearly sold the announcement rights to their child to the MTV VMA’s. That is how you play the GAME.
Pitchfork: Listen: Wild Beasts Remix Lady Gaga →
Well, THIS is an unexpected little treat. I quite like that Wild Beasts album and have not yet paid money for it, so in the wake of the UK warehouse fire, now’s the time to do so for sure.
The Girl With The Most Cake
Matthew Perpetua: Yesterday I went to this 90s themed music critic party.
Chris Conroy: Oh my God. That is basically the equivalent of those masked coke orgies you always assume politicians are having, but for media people.
Matthew Perpetua: Someone made Daphne and Amy a cake shaped like Courtney Love in the "Miss World" video, and instead of singing "Happy Birthday," we all sang "Doll Parts."
oneweekoneband: Originally, the plan was to write about the Pet Shop Boys next week, but the schedule got bumped around a little bit. Which is fortuitious, because it was on August 19, 1981 that Tennant and Lowe first met. That’s thirty years ago today! This is a big day, and we didn’t even plan it that way. HOLY CRAP!!! That is a quality factoid. HAPPY THIRTIETH BIRTHDAY, PET SHOP BOYS! I...

Tried this out tonight. Friggin’ tasty, though it is in basically the exact opposite of a place you would ever be: 37th Avenue & Crescent St, which is essentially an industrial wasteland. They deliver to me though, so eff all y’all.
Sorry for the bleg
…but does anyone have an MP3 of Will Young’s “Jealousy” (the album version, not the remix) they can send me? I’d happily pay money for it if anyone in America had it, but alas, that’s not to be. Help? UPDATE: Max came through for me — thank you kindly, sir!

Ryan Murphy Reveals the Supernatural Sex... →
OK, so this show was barely on my radar, but it sounds like such a potential high-speed trainwreck that I will DEFINITELY be watching the first few episodes. As long as I don’t get stuck in the Glee trap, where I love the premise and hate virtually every detail of the execution, but I just keep watching anyway in the vain hope that, just once, they will do something I will enjoy without a...
