Eight Items or Less: Unnoticed Apps & "Mother Earth Sister Moon"

Gary Pini
1. Apple announced yesterday that there are now over 100,000 iPhone apps.  However, 98 percent of them are "unused, unnoticed and confined to a vast wasteland of obscurity."  (via Digital Music News and AppsFire)

2. Facebook pulled the plug on Dazzle Dancer Cherry Dazzle (né Cary Curran)'s profile due to "sexually explicit material."

3. Matador just bought the hot record label True Panther Sounds whose artists include Girls, Glasser, Tanlines, Lemonade and Hunx and His Punx (aka "the gay Ramones").

4. Only a couple of minutes left to bid on LEGO's
"Story of Christmas" on Goodwill.com. Current bid $3.99.

5. Check out the new Kidrobot winter apparel line here.

6. Don't miss "Mother Earth Sister Moon" at 679 Chasama (679 Third Avenue, performances on November 6, 6 and 8 p.m. and November 14 and 21 at 8 p.m.) It's a fashion show that takes place in a giant reconstruction of the spacesuit worn by the first woman in space.  The piece was created by Christian Tomaszewski and Joanna Malinowska with music by Masami Tomihisa.  (Yes, it's part of Performa 09)
