Years ago Gabe Dixon and I attended The University of Miami. While there, he and the creatively-named Gabe Dixon Band cut an amazing album, toured the US and even played with Billy Joel at The Benefit Concert For NYC after 9/11. Did I mention he also played all piano tracks on Paul McCartney's last album? Yeah, he's pretty talented. They've played on the Late Night Shows in the States, their songs have been used as soundtracks on TV shows and movies... and now Gabe is going solo. I have to say, I've always been a huge fan and even though I've sorta lost contact with him over the last few years, I'm super happy to see he's still making flippen rad music.

Jim Meskimen (you'll know him from Whose Line Is It Anyway?) made this video to get the word out about his new comedy show, Jimpressions. In the video you'll see him perform Clarence's speech from William Shakespeare's Richard III using his impressions of what feels like every celebrity you've ever heard of: George Clooney to Droopy Dog, Kevin Spacey to Morgan Freeman, Harvey Keitel to Woody Allen, Paul Giamati to Jack Nicholsen. Even George W makes an appearance. It's super funny.

Body architect Lucy McRae has teamed up with acclaimed Harvard biologist Sheref Mansy to create Swallowable Parfum: a digestible scented capsule that breaks entirely new ground in the science of human instinct. Apparently, once absorbed, it turns your skin into an atomizer, causing tiny fragrance molecules to excrete through your skin’s surface as you perspire (charming), leaving tiny golden droplets on the skin that emanate a unique odor (say what now?). McRae says the potency of scent is determined by each individual's acclimatization to temperatures, stress, exercise, or sexual arousal. So basically if you sweat like a pig you'll smell like an oily, over-cologned 70's crooner and sparkle like Edward from Twilight when he steps into the sun. I can dig it.
