Under the Sheets


Morning Bell: That’s Daria Werebowy, Kate Moss and Lara Stone, in case you didn’t recognize them from their eyebrows. What they’re doing under there is anyone’s guess. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

The Secondhand Shoe: Jesse Thorn breaks down the economics of eBay shoes. In a word: awesome. [Put This On]

On the Roof: We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. Ruben Toledo has a very, very handsome house. [The Moment]

Higher Education: Dispirited by the American educational system, Bootsy Collins has taken reform into his own hands, starting the soon-to-be-legendary University of Funk. Remember this day. [Boing Boing]

Chief Priest Say


Afrobeat has been gaining cred since the Talking Heads days, but it looks like its chief priest, Fela Ransome Kuti, is finally getting his due.

He’s already the subject of one of the better shows on Broadway—the Hov-produced Fela!, which might be more of an on-stage dance party than a strict play—but it looks like he’ll also be getting the biopic treatment, with the consistently awesome Chiwetel Ejiofor in the lead role.

Here's why we're so excited»

Giving Dap


We’ve always had a soft spot for 70s funk. Something about the trumpet hits, skipped beats…and occasionally the band’s matching suits.

All of which are reasons to be glad Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are sticking around. Their new album’s arriving next week, and we’re happy to say it’s almost exactly what you expect. (The curious can listen in here.) If they can keep this up, we should be in for quite a decade.
