So Joss gave us an evil lesbian and a dead lesbian. I give you evil, dead lesbians. This mash-up came about because I really enjoyed seeing Amber Benson play a psychopath named Allison Davis in the episode “The Perfect Couple” on The Inside. But I didn’t think that Allison and Roddy Davis were the perfect […]

More screaming


Do you remember that scream I was talking about? Well, here it is again, part of it anyway, in Kids. (Just as a warning, this clip contains graphic violence.)

Naming screams


I’m trying to identify a scream. I’m sure you’ve heard it before. If you’ve ever gone trick-or-treating or to a cheesy haunted house, it has probably been playing on the tape of scary noises that someone picked up at the dollar store. You know, this one: I pulled that sound clip from the Buffy episode […]

Athens Boys Choir is actually “one little fairy” named Katz, a trans, genderqueer spoken word/hip-hop artist. I saw him perform in Madison recently and he was hilarious, entertaining and thought-provoking. His little video for “Fagette,” a track off of his new album called Bar Mitzvah Superhits of the 80s, 90s, and Today, has been blowing […]

So South of Nowhere recently aired its midseason finale to make way for Degrassi on The N’s schedule. Perhaps I’m in the minority — and granted I’ve never seen an episode of Degrassi — but do people really care about Degrassi? Go do a search for ‘Palex’ and then a search for ‘Spashley’ on YouTube […]

I think this cover of “White Rabbit” is pretty banal — Heather Grody’s twee voice cannot compete with Grace Slick’s aggressive, throaty wail and the instrumentation isn’t new and interesting enough to compensate. But I love how intense and fierce Leisha is trying to look in this video. I also love all the electric guitar […]

I’m slightly charmed more by “Hott4Hill” but I’m a little turned off by both videos.
