Paint a Vulgar Picture, my friends ... Morrissey gets sketched.

Check out Etchasketchist's Flickr page for more sketchy badassery. Amy Winehouse, NY Giants QB Eli Manning, Herbie Hancock, and Eliot Spitzer are just a few who also receive some lineographic love.

Don't forget, Morrissey's long-awaited booty shot in his Greatest Hits album drops via Decca today! Is your head on the bar yet?

Thanks Briana!

Queens Goes Green

Two weeks ago, the Sultan and I ventured to one of our favorite neighborhoods in Queens, Sunnyside, for their St. Pat's For All Parade. For those who know me well, I celebrate my Irishness with as much spirit as I do my beloved Michigan State Spartans. To get into the holiday spirit, here's a bit of St. Patrick's Day cheer.

Check back Tuesday for additional holiday coverage of NYC's annual 247th St. Patrick's Day parade. Also, please click here to sign the petition to make St. Patrick's Day an official U.S. holiday.

I'm a Barbie Girl

Barbara Millicent Roberts a.k.a. America's favorite fashion doll, Barbie, celebrates 49 years today. Created by American businesswoman Ruth Handler and produced by Mattel, Inc., Barbie is a woman who has seemingly done it all -- she's been a beauty queen, a business woman, a princess, an astronaut, a flight attendant a doctor, as well as a Nascar-drivin' gal who's also been President of the United States. Don't forget Barbie and the Rockers. Where's Emo Barbie or Punk Rock Barbie? Or is Skipper in waiting for a mohawk?

Barbie was also quite the zookeeper, owning nearly 40 pets. As a child of the '80s, I am most familiar with her horse, Dallas, but an eclectic assortment of cats and dogs, and a lion, zebra, and panda roamed the grounds at the Barbie Dreamhouse.

In 2004, after 43 years together, Barbie finally left her longtime boyfriend, Ken. Remember?

Happy Birthday Barbie! Plastic has treated you well, heh.
