What Paul Simon and Robin Hood have to do with my week-end

I had a bad week-end. The worst part is it could have been easily avoided. You always kinda hate yourself when that happens, but hey, its a well known fact that I suck at matters of the heart ;)

Anysnottykleenex, my sad monday post sucky week-end did remind me of two songs.

This one sums up the problem pretty well (though I don't need 50, one that works would be enough). I chose this version because of Paul's oh so sexy mustache.

This one I dragged out of an old toy box somewhere because it makes me smile and has made me smile since I was a wee little Mui... and because I found a karaoke version!


Two things I love put together make... A WROOOONG!

I like Smashing Pumpkins. I like Billy Corgan. I loved his soundtrack for the movie Spun.

Since I was 4, I have been a westling fan. My mom's really proud. Yeah.


Billy Corgan opening TNA Lockdown by rapping Bullet with Butterfly Wings, that... that's an epic fail.

Has he lost all dignity? His mind?


Warner Norway shows total ignorance

On Twitter today, a young man from Norway expressed his discontent at the fact that he couldn't download the new Dave Matthews Band album saying something like: “I’m pissed! iTunes is only allowing downloads of the new Dave Matthews Band album if you live in the US! And they complain about pirating”.

Shortly after, Terje Pedersen from Warner Music Norway replied something like: “Then I suggest you steal it and write about the process in your stupid brat blog. We don’t want you to get upset.”

Obviously, Warner understands social media admirably... Hum hum...

I'm sure consumers and Dave Matthew's Band will just LOVE this.

I'm a nerd and I love Queen

This video is well worth the watch, believe you me. Of course, the fact that I'm a nutso fan of Queen and that I liquefy every time Freddy Mercury appears on tv influences this judgment... but still, it's an instant classic for sure.

Bohemian rhapsody, the old school computer remix. Magnificent.

Pure genius found on The Listenerd a blog I HIGHLY recommend.


Nothing to worry about, Peter Bjorn and John

The new Peter Bjorn and John video features a cultural movement that I find both weird and very interesting: Japanese Rockabilly.

Besides that ;) the song is excellent! One last comment: the singer really sounds like the Beatle era John Lennon on this recording.

Once again, thanks Jeff!


Happy 4/20!

If you don't get it, the joke ain't meant for you ;)


Lady Gaga being her entertaining self

I know I know, I've been a little Gaga obsessed lately (see, I refrained from saying gaga for Gaga... oops). But what's a girl to do, she keeps giving entertaining performances all over the place. Here she is with Poker Face, epileptic dancing and howling included. Kick ass.


David Lynch works with Moby

And, well it sucks. Too bad. The song is far from car ad worthy, the animation isn't very well done and the whole thing is a little boring. You'll tell me I'm being hard on them, maybe, but it could have been the meeting of giants.

Without further ado...
Moby: Shot in the Back of the Head
Video by David Lynch

Thanks Jeff for the heads up.


The Internet Symphony

Youtube asked all musicians that felt like it to film themselves playing a part of a symphony. The piece was written especially for the occasion by composer Tan Dun, and the mash up final video came out today. The result is, in my humble opinion, quite magical and moving.

Here you go



Franz Ferdinand does Britney

One of the rare Britney Spears songs I really enjoy has been redone on the BBC by Franz Ferdinand... and it quite simply rocks! I've been listening to it on a loop since morning.

Download the mp3 thanks to ojama4.


Patience, I'll be back

I know I know, I've all but abandoned my blog recently. I've got 2 excuses: I've just moved and I've been working ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME lately. So there. Do not fret, my pets, I will be back with a vengeance really soon.

And now a song that is only relevant to this post because of its title ;)


Lady Gaga shows how it's done

How does one become a Pop Star? Not by winning some crap contest. By having a real je-ne-sais-quoi, and knowing how to show it off. That's what she demonstrated on American Idol last night.

Poker face reworked for the occasion
