Happy Magic Mike Weekend, Everyone


By:The Crew on 06/29/12


So this is the Magic Mike Red Band trailer. It's kind of tame, innit? Like, we're still as excited as the next homosexuals to see Channing Tatum's ass all over the silver screen, but ya know, in Red Band trailers for horror movies you get lots of guts and viscera. Here we get just a smidgen of derriere. We at Nasty Pig demand more butt. 


Guess we'll have to check it out in the theater.

We Love: DIIV - Doused


By:The Crew on 06/29/12


There we were, minding our own business in the Nasty Pig Studio, Photoshopping pictures of hotties in jockstraps, as we do, sampling DIIV's well-received debut album Oshin (get it?) and generally grooving along to its snappy dreampop, when this track - this perfect slice of new-millennium postpunk, with a guitar line so angular it will cut you - came on.


We had to play it again. We had to play it louder. We had to play it for you.

In New York, Basically Everything's A Little Off


By:The Crew on 06/27/12


Somewhere in Brooklyn - at the 36th Street Station in Sunset Park, to be specific - there's a stair on a staircase that's just ever-so-slightly taller than all the other stairs. And this causes basically everyone to fall on their face. 


Just one of those little things that makes living in New York so very special. We love it - don't get us wrong - but this is why we're so tough. At least we still have a Space Shuttle

@ The Zoo


By:The Crew on 06/26/12



For those of you who think you know (and / or hate) Chris Crocker, the new documentary "Meet Me @ The Zoo" will leave you with a totally different impression of this youtube celeb.  The film is a fascinating narrative about Crocker's rise to fame, his explosion onto mainstream consciousness with his "Leave Britney Alone" video, and his subsequent dimming from the public spotlight.  With Michael Stipe as an executive producer and Chris Moukarbel, partner of Scissor Sisters frontman (and Nasty Pig customer) Jake Shears, as a producer, the story is allowed to tell itself in an honest, tender, and sometimes brutal manner.  This doc is not to be missed.  Catch it on HBO.

By:Dave Hughes on 06/22/12


Nasty Pig wishes everyone a healthy and joyous Pride the best way we know how - with beats! Specifically, a brand new mix by our very own superstar DJ Chad Jack - which opens with a mashup of the insanely hot Razor & Guido remix of the latest Chad Jack vs. Nasty Pig hit "WW4" with "Pride (A Deeper Love)." 

We'll see you on the dancefloor. Maybe wearing these?

We Love: Simian Mobile Disco - Put Your Hands Together


By:The Crew on 06/22/12


 


We are putting on our dancing shoes and our dancing socks and our dancing undies and our dancing shorts and our dancing tee shirt and our dancing hat because this Simian Mobile Disco stormer is working us out. Not to mention the completely hypnotic video. Maybe some DJ will be extra awesome this weekend and drop this. It's Pride after all - a great time to put your hands together.

In Which Kylie Minogue Eats Chips Off Joe Manganiello's Pot Belly


By:The Crew on 06/22/12


It's basically what it says on the tin. 


Some observations: 


1. Seeing Joe Manganiello sans chiseled abdominals is straight-up horrifying. We may have developed a twitch. Stop it, Joe Manganiello. 


2. Joel McHale gets to hang out with Joe Manganiello and Kylie Minogue. He is the luckiest queen in the world. 


3. Kylie Minogue: the world's most shockingly game diva? Just try imagining Madge, Gaga, or Rihanna doing this shit. (No really, imagine, because it is hilarious).


4. "Don't mind them, they're just trying to break the Internet." MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

Things We Covet: Nike Pride New York Be True


By:Dave Hughes on 06/21/12



Here at Nasty Pig, we are what you might call rainbow-skeptical. We're big fans of gay pride, lower case, and we always have a great time at Gay Pride here in NYC, but you (probably) won't find us in rainbow Mardi Gras beads. No shade, it's just not us. 


These kicks, though, which Nike is releasing exclusively in New York in honor of Pride Week? These are very us. Want.

A Song For Tuesday: Brian Eno, Golden Hours


By:Dave Hughes on 06/19/12


It's kinda grey and hazy in New York City today, but some of us in the Nasty Pig Studio are remembering the beach. "Perhaps my brains have turned to sand," as Brian Eno says.


PS - If you've never checked out any of Eno's solo work - he produced some of the biggest Talking Heads, U2 and Coldplay albums, so you've likely heard his work elsewhere - you really ought to.


PPS - Even if visions of the beach are dancing through our heads, we're getting plenty done. Our brains have not actually turned to sand. We took photos of our upcoming Fall collection last week. You guys seriously have no idea.
