!! OMG, hear the title track off Salem’s new album ‘King Night’ !!

KINGNIGHT_COVER_LO-608x608.jpg
Genre-obliterating band Salem will release their debut full-length King Night this fall but the title track, which hit the web yesterday, has already inspired some of the Internet’s top music bloggers to free-associate in weird, rambling blog posts. It’s as if Salem’s dark, distorted music contains a sinister power that turns any blogger that listens to it into Cyndi Lauper on Celebrity Apprentice. (Zing!)
For more on Salem, check out this post from last fall and our interview with band member John Holland.

If you read our interview with pop singer V V Brown earlier this year you will know that she occasionally moonlights as a comic book author. On the heels of her debut LP Travelling Like the Light, V V has released the first in a seven-part series called The City of Abacus, an Orwellian tale she wrote in collaboration with artist David Allian and illustrator Emma Price.
If you are a US resident and would like to win an autographed copy of the first comic in the series, simply email contest(at)omgblog(dot)com with the answer to this skill-testing question:
What is V V Brown’s favorite Blur song? (Hint: the answer is in our interview!)
We will announce the winner via Twitter. For more on the comic, check out a video preview and interview with V V about her literary endeavor after the jump.

!! OMG, How Cute and Delicious: Guinea Pigs !!

At the Guinea Pig Festival in Huacho, Peru, they dress the little darlings up in cute costumes, parade them around in a fashion show, then… fry them up and eat them. I’m not trying to be a hypocrite, because I eat meat and whatever, but I prefer my food sans anthropomorphic costume, thanks!
A few more of the cute pictures after the jump. To see the more of the pigs in their finery, head over here— just don’t scroll too far if you don’t want to see them on skewers!

!! OMG, how romantic: Costco !!

From Craig’s List, a W4W “missed connection”:

I saw you in the cracker aisle holding a 2 pack of hummus and a vat of tomatoes. I wanted to say hello, but I was waiting in line for a cliff bar sample and I didn’t want to lose my place.

You seem like the type to shop here, so maybe I’ll see you again? We could meet for a costco shake and hot dog? Hold the bun.
