A Men's Fashion Guide to Music Festivals

–Instead of the popular ladies' flower crown, wear an actual crown of thorns. Fit it so that it punctures your forehead flesh just enough. If blood gets in your eyes a little bit but you don’t feel that lightheaded, you’re doing it right.

–Pull your jean shorts up as high above your belly button as they will possibly go. Stuff your stomach meat into the shorts (must be denim) and button them NO MATTER WHAT. Button every button. If you pinch some skin with a button, leave it! You will get used to the pain and the skin clumps will eventually fall off, sort of like your umbilical cord. Patch [...]


The Good Ship Coachella

"Q: Is there Internet access on the ship? A: Yes but it will cost you a boat load, no pun intended." —Should we all go on a Coachella Cruise this winter? Tickets start at $700, and go on sale July 21, at 10 a.m. PDT. Both cruises leave from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and sound insane. The site's FAQ section is also fun.


First Aid Kit, "Emmylou"

Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg are First Aid Kit, a folk duo known for their oh-so-lovely harmonies and top-notch storytelling skills. After wowing everyone with their cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” back in 2008, they went on to release an EP as well as a gorgeous full-length debut, The Big Black and the Blue. Their upcoming sophomore effort, The Lion’s Roar (out January 24), is already promising, with a captivating title track and its accompanying Narnia-evoking video.

“Emmylou,” the second Lion's Roar track to surface, is a sweet tribute to country musicians like June Carter, Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, and, of course, [...]


A Guide to Coachella FOMO

It's finally here! Coachella FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) week. The time between the two Coachella weekends when all of the people you follow on Twitter and Instagram are in Indio, getting their face painted, chugging Pabst, and hooking up with people who are friends with that guy you know from internet, all portrayed in the sweet, sweet glow of filters. And you have to suffer from the fear of missing out on desert sunsets and lots of bare thighs.

If you're anything like me (hunkered down in your apartment, clinging to your duvet for dear life), you're probably wondering what you can do at home to make yourself feel [...]


The Only Two Surprises at Coachella 2012

1. Because it was kind of chilly on Friday and Saturday, people wearing spirit hoods (apparently that is the official name for those furry animal hats with long dangly arms on the sides) didn't look as ridiculous as they would have if they'd been wearing them in 95 degree heat. Here are some folks talking about why they love those stupid hats.

2. I only saw ONE completely naked person, and believe me I was keeping my eyes peeled. He was young, alone, and walking with a look of fierce determination around 8pm on Friday night. He wasn't even wearing shoes or socks. What do you suppose happened?

Oh, [...]


Coke and Rum, Fish

In case you missed Coachella, or some version of this exact video yesterday, here's R. Kelly performing "Ignition (Remix)" with French band Phoenix (whose new album, Bankrupt!, is out April 22 and streaming now on iTunes). Nice for a morning.

Also: Kids who eat fish seem to have fewer allergies. But why?

Longform rounds up the 2013 Pulitzer winners and finalists.

And here's one good way to leave the house.
