Two of our favorites together: Bill Withers is as snappy as ever in conversation with Aloe Blacc at the 10th Annual ASCAP “I Create Music”  Expo 2015 which was held in April-May.   If we can only get them together on a track…

DJ Neil Armstrong found out his dog, Poh,  was terminally ill.  When he embarked on his #dinnerandamixtape road trip, Poh was in tow.  They visited 35 cities stretching across the US (they had to return home when Poh started not to feel so well)

You can find Poh on Instagram @pohthedogsbigadventure

Wishing him many more good days…

Shepard Fairey is making a guest appearance on Portlandia on January 29th.  He says:

I’m a big fan of Portlandia, Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen’s comedy show based on poking fun at the idiosyncrasies of bohemian Portland Oregon, so I was very excited when they asked me to do a cameo.  I’ve spent a bit of time and done a few art shows in Portland, so I know where Portlandia finds its inspiration.  In fact, the part I play, a jaded art store employee, was set in the exact art store where I bought my art supplies while staying in Portland for a stint a few summers ago. I’m no actor, but this part, along with maybe “jaded art student” or “jaded skate shop employee,” are the closest I’ll ever get to method acting.  Fred and Carrie are a blast to hang out with and made the whole experience a lot of fun for me. Here’s a clip from the segment, but you can catch the full episode Thurs. night on IFC.  -Shepard

Portlandia airs Thursdays 10pm EST on IFC.

We’ve been longtime internet admirers/IG stalkers of Sam Rodriguez, but we only recently realized that he liked the same music as us.  We were excited when he started to do images of QBert and Pam the Funkstress, but almost passed out when he revealed his designs for Hieroglyphics.  We’re hoping for shirts.  Follow him on Instagram @samrodriguezart
