Morley is a Los Angeles-based street artist that specializes in bold, typographic posters which he wheat pastes within the urban landscape. Blending humor, hope and his unique perspective on life, Morley's aim is to act as a friendly voice amongst the cacophony of billboarded messages and corporate slogans. This voice was given a face when he began including an image of himself in each of his pieces, looking to create a more intimate relationship between the artist and the audience than many of his anonymous contemporaries could allow. In 2011, Morley's work caught the eye of Steve Lazarides whose Outsiders imprint began selling his work, describing it thusly: "His sympathetic statements give the tirelessly aspirational residents a welcome reminder of what's important in life: love, simple pleasures, making the world a slightly better place and not hating on yourself too much."
Today, he continues to paste his work in any city that doesn't enforce their vandalism laws through caning. Also he made us promise to include the fact that he can hold his breath for over an hour, and that "if anyone challenged him to a breath holding contest, they would totally lose," but he was probably lying about that.

Elaine Lui presents and signs Listen to the Squawking Chicken: When Mother Knows Best, What's a Daughter to Do? a Memoir (Sort Of)
Apr 25 2014 - 7:00pm
Book Soup

As the 800,000+ U.S. fans of Elaine Lui's site know, her mother, aka The Squawking Chicken, is a huge factor in Elaine's life. She pulls no punches, especially with her only child. "Where's my money?" she asks every time she sees Elaine. "You'll never be Miss Hong Kong," she informed her daughter when she was a girl. Listen to the Squawking Chicken lays bare the playbook of unusual advice, warnings, and unwavering love that has guided Elaine throughout her life. Using the nine principles that her mother used to raise her, Elaine tells us the story of the Squawking Chicken's life--in which she walked an unusual path to parent with tough love, humor, and, through it all, a mother's unyielding devotion to her daughter. This is a love letter to mothers everywhere. (Amy Einhorn Books)

Exclusive Interview: Courtney Taylor-Taylor Of The Dandy Warhols

Celebrating 20 years and the recent release of their first ever live record, The Dandy Warhols are gearing up for what’s looking to be an across the board, sold-out world tour – their first outing in more than a year.
 
With The Roxy Theatre slated as the third stop on this upcoming urban bohemian voyage, Dandy Warhols’ frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor took a moment out of his soon to be very busy schedule to speak with TSS.com about the new record, his enduring passion for the band’s hits and gives props to possible “celebrity band name game” pioneers REO Speed Dealer.
 
 
The band is gearing up to release its first ever live record. What do you think listeners/fans will take away from this “live experience” that wasn’t captured on the studio albums?

Steel Panther Comes Home With An ‘All You Can Eat’ Release & Party

The Sunset Strip’s own spandex sheathed, hair-metal mainstays, Steel Panther, recently held a press conference of sorts at Hustler Hollywood, an oh so apropos location, to announce the release of their new sartorial opus, All You Can Eat.
 
The band, chaperoned by a bevy of booty shorts clad Hustler girls took questions from the “press” before launching into an acoustic set debuting songs from the new record, as well as fan favorites.
 
Later that evening, at the legendary Rainbow Bar and Grill, the guys took a short break from the afterparty to speak with TSS.com and reminisce a bit about the band’s long and storied history with The Sunset Strip.
