Matt and Kim, Andrew WK, and Soulja Boy Are Dead [VIDEO]

OK, maybe they're not dead dead, they're just zombies. As part of Converse's Three Artists One Song collaboration, the brand brought together Matt and Kim, Andrew WK and Soulja Boy for "I'm A Goner". The video, which premiered August 21st on MTV2, is one big zombie rave. They're drinking embalming fluid (which actually isn't PCP - I checked), duffing in body bags, and putting things in places that shouldn't be in those places. Check out the undead party after the jump.

How To Sound Smarter Than You Are

How To Sound Smarter Than You Are

We all believe that everybody thinks we’re smart. Sorry to disappoint, but those who bother to think about you at all probably don’t have that word in mind. The only chance you have to prove your worth is when talking to other people face on -- forget about social networking because it’s not the same. To sound smarter than you are, which is to say making others perceive you as one smart dude, follow these few simple rules. See, by listening to me, you’re smarter already. Read (if you can) after the jump!

Miniature Tigers and Neon Indian Rock Governors Island with Bushmills [29 Photos]

Miniature Tigers and Neon Indian Rock Governors Island with Bushmills [29 Photos]

One of the best things about summer in NYC is the numerous free concert series that take place virtually daily . Case in point, the Gone to Governors series at the beach @ Governors Island. Last Saturday, I made the short trek out to the island to catch Arizona's Miniature Tigers and Neon Indian from my hometown, Austin, Texas. Unfortunately, I was still on the ferry when Mini Tigers kicked off their short 6 song set, but from what I could hear, they sounded damn tight. I found the next two acts to be a little less than good, but found myself very happy holed up in the 'Captain's Club' sipping on a free Bushmills or six.
