CelebrityThe Mindy Project Season 2!

Anyone excited for The Mindy Project season 2? Well if you’re not amped yet, perhaps some of these juicy little tidbits will set your interest a-sizzling!

Can we just skip to the chase and say that the most notable celebrity appearance in the works is none other than the loveable JAMES FRANCO! No need to get jealous though, girls, because love is not in the air for James and Mindy (who will be just arriving back from Haiti with her season finale fiance Casey). Instead, Franco will be playing a new character in the office coined as the “Anti-Mindy”. Hmm, sounds interesting.

Besides the Franco phenomenon, there is a wedding in store, and Mindy will still be sporting her newly sheared locks from the end of season one. AND, if you’ve ever heard of a little band called The National, expect to see some special footage in a festival-themed episode.

The Mindy Project Season 2 kicks off on September 17th!

ArtRetro Modern: Artist Hiroshi Tanabe

Artist Hiroshi Tanabe combines a retro sense of color and style with meticulous line-work inspired by the traditional woodcut techniques of his native Japan. Punch-colored scenes of women in profile, as well as waves of dragonflies, dancers, and ribbons, exist on flat backgrounds that set the scene for fine waves of hair, and intricate fabric illustration. Tanabe’s career has already spanned two decades, popping up everywhere from Vogue Paris, to Rolling Stone, Anna Sui, and the New York Times.

MusicListen Up! Robin Thicke Releases Blurred Lines

Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke releases “Blurred Lines” today!

Hey, hey, hey!  If you’ve been bootie-shaking to Robin Thicke’s seventies-inspired track “Blurred Lines” all summer, then it’s time to add a few more dance tracks to your collection. Following a fairly silent release of “Love After War” in 2011, Thicke’s latest venture steers off the tracks of his previous R&B  pursuits, and onto a pop music path that pulls a vibrant, free-flowing energy from his party boy lifestyle. “Blurred Lines” (the album) makes a stylish comeback for disco too, weaving some Marvin Gaye or early MJ -style licks throughout this perky dance album…with a few R&B songs thrown in on the end.
