Vintage Vixen

Ladies, it’s hitting that time of the year when it’s HOT outside, and when it comes to clothes, less is definitely more. With that being said, let’s talk lingerie. With clothes being more revealing, you want to be sure to have some cute little under-things. We’ve all seen the great Dita Von Teese by now...
What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?

I’m sad to say that the following story isn’t one of my own, but when I heard it, I found it so bizarre that I had to tell everyone somehow. I heard this funny story while I was sitting and eating with one of my roommates, and, although I won’t be able to do the...
LAUNCH PARTY

LAUNCH PARTY

Hey you guys, So it’s been 2 months now that ANON Magazine has been up and running. Woo! What does that mean?   IT’S TIME TO PARTY.   And yes, that means WE WANT YOU THERE. Bring your party pants. Because it’s a pants party. Okay, not really… but please wear pants, or at least...
Album Analyst: Comedown Machine

Album Analyst: Comedown Machine

When I think of The Strokes, who are the original kings of alternative rock, the difference between them and most other bands is in the legacy that they have created for themselves, and in the near cult following they have amassed. Their music can be described as a journey, a progression as the band explores...
Indie Radar - SKATERS

Indie Radar – SKATERS

Quite possibly the greatest thing out of the New York scene since The Strokes, SKATERS capture an addictive, garage-pop sound that fuses elements of punk and indie dreaminess into a glorious combination of sounds. These sounds cannot simply be categorized into just one genre of music. I fell in love with this band during my...
Mixtape Monday: Everybody Hates Mondays

Mixtape Monday: Everybody Hates Mondays

As the title says, everybody hates Mondays. It’s almost an understatement. Mondays remind us of all the stress to come in the week; it’s the day we’ve got to recover from our crazy drunken weekend and put the adult pants back on. Mondays suck. So, with that said, take a listen to this playlist. I...
The End Of An Era: My Chemical Romance

The End Of An Era: My Chemical Romance

So long, and goodnight… “Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best...
The Art Of Moving On

The Art Of Moving On

It’s Sunday afternoon, or morning for you, as you are just waking up after a long night of partying and drinking your heartbreak away. You drag yourself out of bed, drink about a gallon of water, and swallow some Tylenol to get rid of your killer headache. You check your phone, and embarrassingly read a total...
Summer: Deandri x Mink Pink

Summer: Deandri x Mink Pink

Take the girl next door, mix her with the rebellious 1990’s Angelina Jolie, and boom! This look happens. A lot of people have a tendency to wear what’s normal or expected during spring and summer, such as: pastels, neons, lots of colors, blah blah blah. Oh, you’re mixing it up with a bright colored top, chunky...

Indie Radar: Said The Whale

Indie Radar: Said The Whale

Like every responsible person 21 and up, I spent my St. Patty’s day getting way too drunk and slurring my words, but the main difference is that I watched the Vancouver-based, Juno-Award winning band, Said the Whale, play a private show in my friend’s (Lincoln) backyard.  Way to boost your indie cred, Lincoln; props bro,...
Mixtape Monday: Chill Out

Mixtape Monday: Chill Out

Sit back and relax. This week is a time to recuperate from the festivities and craziness of spring break. After a successful week at SXSW for some of our staff members, we decided to throw in a few of our favorite tunes from the festival. Enjoy!      
We Love Miista

We Love Miista

  Nothing says ‘spring fling’ better than Miista’s spring line of shoes mixed with some playful patterns and colors! Instead of going with the traditional florals for spring, mix it up and bring in some bold fall hues with the spring pastels. Miista’s line of shoes is classy yet crazy- a definite statement piece that’s...
Suits Gone Wild: The Tie-Dye Trend In Menswear

Suits Gone Wild: The Tie-Dye Trend In Menswear

With the multiple fashion weeks we’ve seen this year, a common trend has become quite prevalent: tie-dyed menswear. Tie-dye is nothing new, as we can see in the old photo albums that our parents have kept from the 60’s, but it has definitely made a strong comeback in the fashion world this year. Throughout the...
A Real Celebrity: Demi Lovato

A Real Celebrity: Demi Lovato

A lot of celebrities, whether their forté is in dancing, singing, or acting, put on a performance every day of their lives. They don’t eat enough, look flawless while jogging or getting a cup of coffee, and in a lot of cases, pretend they’re nice, talented people; when in reality, they’ve got egos the size...

To The Guys: Stop Trying To Control How Women Look

To The Guys: Stop Trying To Control How Women Look

Alright, so, I should probably put it out there that I often find myself relating to Squidward. We both suck at the clarinet (I’ve never actually attempted to play, but I’m taking an educated guess here), and we both have a lot of pet peeves. If you’re not a fan of people who complain and...
The Mowgli's - Love's Not Dead EP

The Mowgli’s – Love’s Not Dead EP

The Mowgli’s have been taking the folk-indie world by storm  since the release of their EP, “Love’s Not Dead,” back in October. They have especially been captivating the airwaves with their immensely catchy, musical smile of the song “San Francisco,” which has become insanely popular. There’s something about their sound that simply puts a smile...
Indie Radar - Le Trouble

Indie Radar – Le Trouble

When it comes to indie music, there are some things that the listener can come to expect. Whether it’s indie-rock or folk, there is a status-quo to music, and a comfortable boundary of tried and not-tried. In many ways, when I hear a new band, I find myself cataloging their sound in my mind, comparing...
New Phoenix Single - "Entertainment"

New Phoenix Single – “Entertainment”

February 18th, almost four years after Phoenix released their killer record “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix,” the band released their first new studio content. The track is a single, titled “Entertainment,” off their upcoming record “Bankrupt!,” which is expected to drop April 23rd. I’ve been a huge phoenix fan since their release in 2009, and let me...
Tame Impala - Lonerism

Tame Impala – Lonerism

The first time I heard Tame Impala’s debut album, Innerspeaker, I couldn’t believe that they were from this decade. The Australian outfit has managed to resurrect the psychedelic rock of the 60s and 70s, and forge it with the emerging indie-rock genre of our time. Along with this, they have created something truly magical. The...
SXSW 2013: A Place To Start

SXSW 2013: A Place To Start

It’s that time of the year again.   While some venture to the Gulf to frolic half-naked in front of thousands of people in search of that week long buzz, looking to make a couple of bad decisions that might put you in a Girls Gone Wild video, I will be at SXSW Music Festival...
Facebook 101: Relationship Etiquette

Facebook 101: Relationship Etiquette

  Let’s be honest, social networking can either make or break a relationship. “OMG, we’re Facebook Official?” Admit it, that’s a big deal in today’s technologically formulated society, and the way we conduct ourselves in the realms of social media gives our friends and followers a chance to make perceptions about our personalities and personal...
Awkward Situations Anonymous

Awkward Situations Anonymous

Somehow, no matter how much precaution I take, I am unable to avoid the inevitable awkwardness that pops up in my everyday life. I’ve become accustomed to blank stares and confused faces, so it doesn’t bother me that much anymore, but every so often I’ll be in a situation that, when reflected on, brings shame...
The "DRIVE" Soundtrack Is Musical Genius

The “DRIVE” Soundtrack Is Musical Genius

Okay, so let me start off by saying how great is the movie  Drive? I was under the impression, before I saw the film, that Ryan Gosling was just another sissy pretty-boy. Maybe I only had that opinion because I watched half of “The Notebook,” but I was completely wrong. That dude is… well, a...
Mainstream Electronica: A Bright Future

Mainstream Electronica: A Bright Future

Mainstream Electronica? This is something that I’m really getting excited about. Not that this is the first time that electronic music has been commercialized into the mainstream, but the scope and scale at which it is happening right now has me really optimistic for the future. More than anything in else this post, I want...

Chicanos Eaten by Icelandic Trolls: A Poem by Valerie Huerta

Chicanos Eaten by Icelandic Trolls By Valerie Huerta   Kids are lighting fireworks on the two streets that make a Horseshoe where the Dallas county line breaks off into anarachy; a word that looks like two lines of dirt made by the same child’s hand.   Mrs. Peña’s kindergarten class was just released an hour...
Indie Radar - Fitz & The Tantrums

Indie Radar – Fitz & The Tantrums

So, here at ANON, we’re going to be doing a weekly blog about up and coming artists, or artists that deserve a shout out for the amazing music that they create. We are doing this just to spread the word and hopefully create a few more fans if we can. If you have any recommendations...
Sleeping: An Underrated Bond

Sleeping: An Underrated Bond

“I want to sleep with you.” Now, after hearing that, your initial thoughts are probably along the lines of “I’m about to get laid,” or something of that sort. However, in this modern day and age, the activity of sleeping has transformed into something else; it has become a new form of bonding between two people....

A Quote For The Day

Mixtape Monday: Rebellion

Mixtape Monday: Rebellion

In a world where the old and bitter control all the power, in a state of crumbling rights, it’s important to remember who to stay true to: ourselves. Don’t blindly accept the facts; question what is told, and discard what should be replaced. Music transcends the evil of the world and is a beacon of...
Guys: 9 Signs That You're In The Friend Zone

Guys: 9 Signs That You’re In The Friend Zone

Well, it happened again. I’m not exactly sure what brought it on this time, but whatever I did, it worked… in the wrong way. I sometimes wonder if it’s me being too polite, me caring too much about their feelings, or me just trying to be as chivalrous as possible. I would never want to...
There Is No One Alive Who Is You-er Than You.

There Is No One Alive Who Is You-er Than You.

  So, you’re in a relationship, or pursuing one, maybe looking for a casual fling, or maybe you’re like me and have gone through the “admire from afar” phase.  Currently and amazingly, I am in a stable and long-lasting relationship of nearly two years.  I sometimes like to think I know what I’m talking about but...

Nothing get’s me going like a cute, sensible guy who plays guitar, loves animals, and is Ryan Gosling.
Style Inspiration: Romy And Michele's High School Reunion

Style Inspiration: Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion

Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion – one of the best cult classics. At least, in my opinion it is. I hope that I’m not the only one who grew up wishing that I could be one of the fashionably-fantastic-bitchin’-blondes in this movie. Regardless, if that was just my dream or the dream of many other people, those...
