BOY still 7.jpg
Forget TIFF, it’s all about SSION. The Midwestern glam punk rockers are bringing their debut full-length musical feature BOY to Toronto on August 28. Directed by band mastermind/pop artist Cody Critcheloe, the film combines nine music videos into an hour-long D.I.Y. narrative about teenage love, longing and rock n’ roll idolatry. The film premiered in SSION’s hometown Kansas City last year and has been touring the globe ever since. Following the screening at Mercer Union, Cody will perform at the after party at Hotnuts. Full details via Facebook. Check out the trailer for BOY below:

!! OMG, Yay: Proposition 8 overturned (again) !!

Well lookee! Prop 8’s been overturned– again! U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker rained on Carrie Prejean’s wedding day with his ruling today that the infamous California law banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
Judge Walker writes in his decision:
Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California constitution the notion that opposite sex couples are superior to same sex couples.
Don’t get too excited though– the ruling has already been appealed and probably won’t be truly decided until it makes it to the SCOTUS, where the likes of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas will get the opportunity to put their two Republican cents in.

No, you idiot, that’s not Suze Orman! It’s everyone’s favorite chain-smoking spurned wife: Jenny Aniston! She’s on the cover of this month’s Harper’s Bazaar in full on Barbra Streisand drag.
On commonalities between herself and Ms. Barbra, Jenny had this to say:

“I had a long conversation with Barbara about directing because I directed a short a couple years ago, and if I don’t do it again soon, I’m going to burst out of my skin. And we also love interior design.

!! OMG, Jónsi releases new vid, announces US tour !!


Icelandic rock star Jónsi is bringing his unique brand of whimsical thrash pop back to American shores this fall in support of his debut solo project Go. For a taste of what to expect from the Sigur Ros front man’s live experience, check out his recently-released video “Animal Arithmetic”, which emphasizes the singer’s penchant for percussive insanity as well his deep love of confetti through a series of close-up camera shots.
Unfortunately we missed Jónsi’s first go-around back in the spring, but apparently it won rave reviews because he’s assembled several choice pull-quotes for the official tour trailer (below). Full list of dates after the jump!
