When Toro y Moi came to downtown Miami's Grand Central in December, every hipster in the tri-county area went into fits. The Brooklyn artist played to a sold-out crowd while even more fans were left out in the (metaphorical South Florida) cold. If you were a member of the unlucky, left-out lot, you ... More >>
If you had stumbled across Moner Abu-Salha's Facebook profile a year ago, you would have found a recently updated page fitting for any suburban South Florida bro. On June 24, he updated his profile pic to a selfie flexing his biceps in the bathroom mirror and his cover photo to a Miami Heat logo. He ... More >>
Father's Day is this Sunday, and it's an obligatory holiday. One exception: If you're a fetus whose dad has dubbed himself "Yeezus," you have our permission to ignore the holiday from now until forever. But for the rest of us, it's time to start the mad scramble for a last-minute gift. This isn't l ... More >>
See Crossfade's full 53-photo slideshow from Sweatstock 2012. Simply put, Deaf Poets won Sweatstock 2012.

Pedobear, the online meme meant to mock pedophiles, recently popped up in a Lakeland, Florida coupon book for a computer parts distribution company called CP Distributor. Unfortunately, CP also stands for "child pornography," and it appears some clueless coupon designer included the image not kno ... More >>
North Miami Mayor Andre Pierre seems to have some secretive and flashy quirks, which would be fine if it didn't involve public money and shady ethics. A few months after being forced to return a borrowed Porsche he was driving around town and never reporting who lent him the car, he's now under f ... More >>
via The SelbyThe proper word to describe Pharrell Williams' Miami apartment is, I believe, something like "banonkers." But what do you expect from the guy who co-produced some of the most adventurous, mind-melting pop hits of the first half of the last decade? The Selby takes an exclusive look in ... More >>
Marco Rubio may now be DC's newest studly senator, but back when he was a freshman at Miami Senior High School he was a "acne ridden boy with braces and knobby knees" who turned his stalking-like courting habits in to a relationship with a nice young girl. Well, Rubio's ex-sweetheart is dishing on t ... More >>

Last week marked the five-year anniversary of the death of Terri Schiavo. Just ten days before the March 31 anniversary, Family Guy, which basically stays relevant by creating controversy, poked fun of the entire Schiavo affair by including a storyline about Stewie's pre-school class pu ... More >>
Yes, that's "Stewie" as in the misanthropic infant star of The Family Guy. And while this event's connection to "art" is rather tenuous, who among our very coveted young demographic doesn't like The Family Guy? So stay with me here while I explain the concept of this Wednesday night party at the ... More >>

Being a Miami native, I'm always curious to hear what folks think about my hometown. And, as you might suspect, I'm not afraid to ask. When it's bold-faced name folks, I get even more curious. Not that their thoughts are any more or any less important than those of plain text folks, mind you; but ... More >>
The Emmy nominations are out today, and boy are they weird. But possibly in a really good way. Not tons to report on the local front. Dexter, Showtime's drama about a Miami-based serial killer, got nods in the "Outstanding Drama Series" catagory. Meanwhile, Dexter himself, Michael C. Hall, rece ... More >>
I know it's so easy to make fun of Dick Armey's name (Vagina Coastguard, thanks Family Guy), that even Dick Armey has done it himself. Dave Barry, of all people, once asked Armey if that was really his name. "Yes, I am Dick Armey. And if there is a dick army, Barney Frank would want to join up," ... More >>

It can be a devil to drive.
Perhaps you woke up this morning, mouth tasting like the lining of a birdcage only with the texture of sandpaper. You used a nearby crowbar to pry open one eye. When you eventually made it to the bathroom you saw those eyes are not only bloodshot, but toting more baggage than your last girlfri ... More >>
The B-plot on last night's Family Guy dealt with one of Miami's most important industries -- the very fertile comedy grounds of douchy nightclubs. Some nightclub owner and promoter types are easy to laugh at without anyone having to point it out, but Family Guy takes a whack at it anyway. Stewie ope ... More >>
