    The Reality Bites Soundtrack at 20: The Good, The Bad and the Totally '90s

    This week marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Reality Bites, Houston's cinematic "'90s moment" starring Ethan Hawke's grunge locks and Winona Ryder's doily dress. It's a flawed film, and rather unsatisfying at times, but it's hardly without its charms -- quite like Houston itself, one might ... More >>

    Frog Eyes! The 10 Greatest Glasses-Wearing Musicians

    If you were like me growing up, you had glasses. You got ridiculed for it with names like "frog eyes," "nerd" (sadly children didn't equate that with smart, just weird), "ugly" and "geek." Even worse was the fact that, as a result of my wearing glasses, I couldn't wear sunglasses because the good o ... More >>

    Bumbaklat Hits: Pop's 10 Most Unforgivable Reggae Misappropriations

    Can you feel it yet? Don't let all this rain fool you -- Summer is on its way.

    Looking Glass: Rock Music's Five Most Famous Four Eyes (Other Than Buddy Holly)

    Holly had no idea what he was starting.​The Wall Street Journal wrote an interesting article about Buddy Holly's optometrist. That's not something most people would think about when it comes to music, but fashion has been significantly influenced over the years by music. In much the same way C ... More >>

    A Page Outta: Cupcake Lasagna

    Cupcake Lasagna: you asked for this, people​It's my fault, clearly. I didn't lay out any ground rules. I set myself up, and (one of) you took the bait. Still, I was a bit shocked when I wound up preparing cupcake lasagna for this week's A Page Outta. I knew it was at least mostly intended as ... More >>

    Recasting MTV's Daria With Real-Life Musicians

    ​There was once a brighter time in the history of MTV when the network occasionally played interesting animated series and occasionally even music videos. Now, instead of Daria, there's Snooki; instead of Beavis and Butt-Head, there's The Situation and Pauly D. Growing up, Daria (1997-2002) w ... More >>

    5. Los Amigos Invisibles Comercial (Nacional) ​It's been 14 years since the Amigos' 1995 debut, and contrary to what the title of their latest album implies, the group remains as dedicated as ever to their initial mission of being Venezuelan antiheroes in a scene dominated by rock and salsa.

    He Said She Said: Our Top Ten Girl-Crushes

    Ask any musician: there is something basically and viscerally masculine about the industry itself, and that masculinity can seep into the most feminine of rocker chicks and indie music queens. That swagger, that attitude, that confidence coupled with soft hair, a pair of soft lips and a softly lilti ... More >>
