On Your Nose PillowTalk Music #2: Sweet Thing

Another freshtastic music post by Stacie on the On Your Nose Blog.

This one is a rockin cd review of Sweet Thing’s self-titled major label debut. Check it.

If you’re curious about Sweet Thing you can see their music in the cheeky movie Easy A or of course on the internets!

If you’re curious why we occasionally feature music related items on On Your Nose Blog’s well we have some good reasons, none of them are probably “logical.” On Your Nose logic!

First Stacie rocks, she’s an outstanding music writer and we wanted to expose her work to a larger audience. As for the content fitting in well it actually makes sense: you need good music to celebrate comeuppance. A silent celebration doesn’t exactly pack the place with ladies. Plus it’s fun. So…there it is. On Your Nose logic!

Any questions?

On Your Nose (www.onyournose.com) is the charismatic celebration of comeuppance in pop culture and life. Come·up·pance noun: A punishment or fate that someone earns. On Your Nose: For when In Your Face just won’t do & Deal With It isn’t enough!

On Your Nose is the ideal expression for this remarkable community seriously seeking satisfaction in successes (“I told you so!”), a bold way to engage pop culture and declare the misfortunes of common cautionary tales. Not quite karma, not quite grace, not quite funk, not quite soul.

On Your Nose is that seriously sassy spot where your nasal bone ends and your cartilage begins. Yes Guy!

Burning Bush Privilege

Overwhelming. That’s my life lately.

This winter is not helping, my strength just gets sapped so quickly.

The Passing Of The Torch

This is a eulogy for a fictional comic book character Johnny Storm: The Human Torch, a member of the Fantastic Four. In Issue 587 he passed away and those events prompted the following. Yes I know he’s a fictional character. Yes I can tell the difference between real life and comic book world. But as any avid reader will tell you a death of a major character, one you’ve emotionally invested in is devastating. Good writing does that.

On Your Nose Means

OnYourNose.com is slowly growing, with all the Christmas/holiday stuff out of the way we’re going to start doing media, forums etc. so hopefully it’ll take off. Sites of this type like fmylife, texts from last night etc. all hit critical mass in about 4 months or so…which puts at basically April. By then (if not sooner) we’ll know if we’re DOA or number 1 with a bullet. This might take a bit longer since On Your Nose is not a common phrase in the population.

I’m the I in IFC

This week the American IFC (the good version really…the Canadian version always leave something to be desired) is going to be airing The Ben Stiller show.

It would be so fun to go back to that. Is there any hope Canadian IFC (Independent Film Channel) will pick that up as well?

Canadian IFC has been a real bust over the years. Dinner for Five was great…then gone.

The Henry Rollins Show was great too…then cancelled! Sigh. At least Henry they continue to air, I wish they’d dust off Dinner and re-run that. I know the entire series is out on dvd but I’m not really gonna track that down and watch the entire thing in one block.

And why the entire Dinner for Five series out on dvd and Iconoclasts (on the Sundance channel) is not is something I’ll never grasp.

Based on this post I have weird niche tv taste: I’m the I in IFC.
