So what didja wind up doing last weekend? Get drunk and act the fool at a club, perhaps? Or did it involve sacking out in front of the latest episode of Game of Thrones or Mad Men? We're willing to bet it was nowhere near as pimp as how Valley resident Les Sias spent his off hours.

Oh you don't own a TV? How brave.
Seriously -- people love bragging about not watching TV, but they're missing out. Whether watching live, on Netflix, or on DVD, there's almost nothing as fun as zoning out in front of the TV.
We're partial to music too (you might have guessed), so when we started ... More >>

It's easy to see international artist CéU's mass appeal. Her music can evoke images of a smoky lounge full of Mad Men types sipping scotch, or she can put you on some sandy beach with a caipirinha in one hand and a bikini-clad babe on your arm. ... More >>
It's only been a few days since last Sunday's season finale of Mad Men, but the episode is still sparking plenty of discussion around the water cooler. This past season of Mad Men, the show's fifth, felt a bit hit and miss at times. It may have started off slow, but it picked up towards the end of t ... More >>
Jeez, was Mad Men strange last night or what?
Last night's episode was probably the closest the show has come to acting like a horror flick, with all the blurry, murderous details, and the blood splattered headlines (of course there was that moment with the John Deere tractor in season 3).

March just can't come fast enough for me. I miss Mad Men something fierce, and season four left me with so many questions (I won't spoil anything if you haven't caught up, but man, could Betty have been more awful?).
I'm not the only one wishing that the show was back, as shows like Pan Am and ... More >>

These days, the lines between indie and mainstream music are difficult to pinpoint. With indie artists featured prominently in mainstream media (I'm looking at you, Twilight soundtrack), it's hard to see what makes indie music, well, indie.
