Halloween is just around the corner and to prepare we’re turning up the bass and listening to Salem‘s druggy, blissed-out noise pop. Who are Salem? They are two cute guys and one cute girl from the Midwest who have released two EPs, Yes, I Smoke Crack and Water, plus a few singles. Their most recent releases are the 7-inch single is “Frost” on Audraglint Records and a pair of Gucci Mane remixes.
You will be familiar with Salem if you are a regular reader of The Fader or other such music-meets-art-meets-street fashion websites whose writers breathlessly document and dissect their every fart. Could there be something in Salem’s menacing lo-fi music that turns bloggers into brainwashed human time bombs à la the 1977 Charles Bronson Soviet paranoia thriller Telefon? Is that why their lyrics are so hard to understand?
Listen to “Frost” and the aforementioned Gucci Mane remixes and decide for yourself. And stay tuned to omgblog.com for our interview with Salem member John Holland.

!! OMG, Look How She’s Grown: Rainbow Brite !!

If anyone was ready for a slutty makeover, it’s 80’s cartoon pixie Rainbow Brite. After all, “ladies” have been doing Rainbow for Halloween for years now. Why shouldn’t the doll herself follow suit?
Well good news, cuz she is! Little girls in platform heels, tube-tops and frosted lipgloss can now rejoice, because the formerly dumpy and prepubescent Ms. Brite is set to drop a few pounds, add some curves, and hike up her hemline with the release of her new line of dolls in January, according to Playthings magazine:

Playmates plans a line of fashion dolls, plush and role-play toys that will reach retailers in time for fall 2009. The toys will “honor the nostalgic look, indomitable spirit and energy that Rainbow Brite embodies with a trendy tween redesign that girls will adore,” according to United Media.

Nothing says indomitable like having all your snacks hanging out!

!! OMG, we marched! !!

What do I want? A rich husband with a 10-inch D! When do I want it? NOW!
So we went to the march and everything. It’s taken me a couple of days to write it up because I’m still really not sure how I felt about the whole thing. By now I suppose it’s irrelevant– if it wasn’t already irrelevant from the start– but in the spirit of the march, WHATEVER.
Sunday was a beautiful day in Washington– maybe too beautiful– and everyone seemed to be in a really good mood. (Maybe too good.) My comrades and I were really hung over and hungry and no one had gotten much sleep and some of us (me) had gone to bed lonelier than others. Even so, with the weather and everything, it was hard to be too grumpy. (Regular readers will know that grumpy is my default mood, so this is saying a lot.)

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]
