Drinkify is a drinking game waiting to happen Type in your artist of choice and Drinkify pairs it with a beverage. Never again will you make the mistake of drinking beer while listening to Wu-Tang Clan (Drinkify says "1 bottle Gin") or doing shots of Jager to Nina Simone ("1 bottle Cabernet"). Relieved? Us too. Created last weekend at Music Hack Day Boston, this music/drink generator is one of 56 new applications built in just two days. Coded by Matthew Ogle, designed by Hannah Donovan and data by Lindsay Eyink, they made their own drink database to work with pre-existing Last.fm and The Echo Nest databases. The result is Drinkify, Spotify's bartender. Check out Drinkify here and keep scrolling for some of our favorite pairings.
Our favorite 45-year-old rock star, Courtney Love is interviewed by Phantom Radio 105.2 in Dublin and she pulls a "Letterman days" move (refusing to get off the air). When the host says, "I like the song Loser Dust..." she says, "That's so gay." [Courtney Love] Megan Fox is too skinny for movies about cars that turn into soldiers. [Jezebel] Pouring alcohol into your eye balls to get drunk faster is the new black in Britain. [Daily Mail] Sarah Burton has some big shoes to fill over at The McQueen residence, but we think the old girl can do it. [Vogue] Lynn Hirshberg (the same journalist that Kurt and Courtney threatened to kill via voicemail after she said Courtney used heroin while pregnant in a 1992 issue of Vanity Fair) recently did a piece for The New York Times about M.I.A. M.I.A wasn't happy, so she posted a tasty tweet in rebuttal. Then, New York Magazine covered the "Ten Harshest Points" in Iceberg Hirshberg's article. (Really, was that necessary?) Maybe M.I.A. will get some love in her and writes a song called, "Payback's a bitch." [New York Times] Why Basketball Wives is sad for women everywhere. [Parlour] Peanut butter and jelly go together. But supposedly not Brooks Brothers and Comme de Garcons. [Vice]
