Video: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Love Singing About Pizza

Slice Erin Zimmer 7 comments

Ever thought about how well pizza rhymes with Visa, Mona Lisa, and Tower of Pisa? It's just asking to be in a jingle sung by tween girls in overalls. This 1990s throwback video starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and a few other girls, who aren't Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, starts out pretty harmless—OMG, pizza!—until they start throwing fried chicken, ice cream, a whole fish, chocolate sauce, egg foo young, and pretty much every food they can list in three minutes on the pie. They successfully create the most narsty-sounding pizza in the history of girly sleepover song sequences, ever. More

Slice Adam Kuban 3 comments

Reaching in to the Slice mailbag, we've got ... Hey, Adam!I was a royal escort at Saturday's Mermaid Parade on Coney Island, where the king and queen were Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson (omg!). Lou didn't get as into the costumed spirit as some of us—I was a BP pirate, complete with oil-slicked bird on my shoulder—but he WAS wearing a Totonno's hat, and that's pretty damn Coney of him.Attached is a pic of me with Lou and Laurie, doing my best "arrrrrrrrrrrr" (but instead freaking out in a total fangirl moment). And if you look here, in the... More

Lindsay Lohan's Family Abuses the Carvel Free Ice Cream Black Card

Sweets Erin Zimmer 17 comments

Here's the latest in Lohan family drama. Get excited, it's pretty ridiculous! Last year Carvel issued 75 Black Cards to celebrity friends ("chosen based on their known love of Carvel," says Fudgie the Whale) in honor of their 75th anniversary. These Black Cards got them free ice cream for 75 years—but just them, not their moms! Lindsay and her sis Ali both scored cards, but mother hen Dina and the extended family have been using abusing them. And Carvel finally busted them for it. More

'Slice Harvester' Gets to Hang with Phoebe Cates

Slice Adam Kuban 1 comment

"What's that over there? Pizza?" [Still: Universal Pictures] Is there an American heterosexual male alive who went through adolescence in the '80s who does not have the pool scene from Fast Times burned into his brain? I didn't think so. Therefore I am officially jealous of Colin "Slice Harvester," who somehow met up with Phoebe Cates to go slice harvesting. Colin is more gentleman than I, as his post about the encounter masterfully walks the line between adoring Phoebe fanboy and professional pizzeria guide. Apparently, Ms. Cates's daughter, Greta, saw Slice Harvester, wanted to go along on one of... More

Video: Michael Jackson Organizes a Food Fight After Filming 'Black or White'

Erin Zimmer 9 comments

We were sad to hear about the passing of Michael Jackson today. After learning about his cardiac arrest, only to find his death confirmed shortly thereafter, we listened to some of the pop king's hits and found this video of him organizing a food fight after filming Black or White, a short early 1990s film inspired by the hit single. Jackson wanted to pay the director John Landis some thanks for all his hard work throughout the taping, and clearly pie projectiles were the best way to do that. Jackson and a young Macaulay Culkin (also in Black or White) planted stink bombs in the pies, which were all lined up on a very long table, and had Super... More
