Um, how cool is this?! Urban land artist, Jorge Rodrigues-Gerada, has officially created the largest portrait ever. Bigger than a football field! Oh and it gets better - the piece was created to promote women’s rights for Amsterdam’s “Open Your Eyes” campaign. Girl power!

BREAKING NEWS! I found a musical comedy group called Stuckey & Murray and they’re awesome. “They’re hilarious and entertaining”, raves The New York Times! Jk, that’s how I feel but I bet if The New York Times saw them perform they’d feel the same way. I thought I had really discovered something secret and underground when I found them but it turns out they are kind of a big deal in the real-deal-holy-field kind of way. They have won the affection of millions by becoming semi-finalists on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and appearing on HBO’s “Funny as Hell”, “The Chelsea Handler Show” and “Cash Cab”.
I got to see them perform twice, once in good ol’ NYC and then at SXSW in Austin. Andy Stuckey and Jon Murray have been together for about ten years and in the last three have incoorperated accordion player, John Foti to add just an extra splash of zest to the whole dish, which may I add is delicious…ladies.
To watch these guys perform is a real delight and I don’t use that word lightly, it makes me sound like I would be easy to mug or that I know a thing or two about different kinds of cake icings, but I don’t. While we are on “the getting to know Molly train”, truth time: I don’t really like live music. I know how unpopular that makes me. I know that to some it makes me almost unlovable. But I’m willing to be honest with you here. I want you to know how hard it is for me to enjoy myself at a live music show. I want you to know all of this, so that when I tell you I saw some hilarious live music and it was awesome as shit you will know I’m not lying. I would never lie to you, unless we started dating, in which case buckle up and get ready to go to lie city. Let me stop beating around this bush and filling your beautiful heads with my commitment issues and let you get to know Stuckey and Murray from Stuckey and Murray in this hard hitting interview below. Be sure to peep their site, buy their albums and see them live asap. You won’t be sorry. You will enjoy yourself, take it from a borderline cranky cat lady who doesn’t have cats yet.
1. Your songs are all hilarious and your videos are pretty sweet too. Do you have a favorite video that you’ve done?
S: Unicorn in C Major is probably my favorite video. It’s just so ridiculous and exactly what the internet is about - wasting time and laughing. It was such a ridiculous concept and shoot. Plus Murray looks like a flamboyant superhero in it. What’s better than that?
2. How did you guys meet?
S: Truth be told, Murray and I met in a gay bar, even though we are not gay.
M: We both just like hanging out in places with nice decor.
S: We were also both NBC Pages at the same time.
M: We met Foti through our mutual friends The Defibulators.
3. You guys ever argue? If so what about, and how do you make up?
S: We don’t argue a lot because one of us is usually right.
M: I’m always right.
S: I agree. If we have to make up we have an epic solo-off to decide who should apologize.
M: But since none of us are very good at solos, we usually just snuggle-it-out.
4. Do you believe in spirit animals? If so what would the Stuckey & Murray spirit animal be?
S: The Stuckey & Murray spirit animal would be a honeybee- hard working, dedicated to their queen and their genitalia fall off after having sex.
M: Yeah that sounds about right.

Of course we love Polyvore! And one very creative member, who goes by the name of Concept, has totally caught our eye! Crazy for the way they put together these collages. Such amazing use of color!
Zendaya Coleman looked so pretty in pastels, rocking our Lollie Embellished Dress at the Kid’s Choice awards earlier this week. So cute the way she made the piece her own by layering on a lovely light blue sweater. And check out those crazy nails…we like this girl’s style! Work it, Zendaya!
Gotta love some good nail art. And don’t forget to pile on the sassy accessories, of course!! The perfect finishing touch to any outfit, if you ask us. The more “out there” the better. Dare to stand out!
