Singing on Ugly Betty!!

YAYY!   This video is just clips, but the cast of Ugly Betty obviously recorded this version of New York, New York at some point..(they film in NY now right?) I can’t wait for this show to start back up on Thursday and I really hope there is a musical number.  Remember Vanessa Williams was a singer!!.. I think it was ‘Sometimes the snow comes down in June’.. blahblahblah.. yeah I know the words and that is sad. SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST was the name of that song and I didn’t even have to Google.  OH, yes there IS a music video… take it away Wilhelmina Slater.. 

Youtube is saying it isn’t available but that’s not true!!  HERE is the link.  PS – Thank GOD for DVR so I can watch the Office and Ugly Betty without having to pick between them.

Palin rejected by Heart

My favorite woman fronted 70s classic rock band, Heart (no joke), isn’t down with Sarah Palin using their song Barracuda as her theme song. To be honest, neither am I. From Yahoo news.

Despite the Wilson sisters’ objections, one of the song’s co-writers said he was “thrilled” that the song was used.

In an e-mail to Reuters, the band’s former guitarist, Roger Fisher, said it was a win-win situation. Heart gets publicity and royalties, while the Republicans benefit from “the ingenious placement of a kick-ass song,” Fisher said.

But in a subsequent email, Fisher said he strongly endorsed the Democratic ticket, and would donate a portion of royalties he receives from the Republicans’ airing of “Barracuda” to the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama.

“With my contribution to Obama’s campaign, the Republicans are now supporting Obama,” he said.

Who wanted to go to the art parade?

Updated: art parade has been canceled for weather related issues- rar


September 06, 2008
Along West Broadway from Houston to Grand Street

Deitch Projects, Creative Time and Paper Magazine are pleased to announce the fourth annual Art Parade. The parade will take place on Saturday, September 6th, at 4:00 PM on West Broadway. Following the success of the past three Art Parades, we have again invited artists, performers and designers to create floats, balloons, placards, portable sculptures, performances and street spectacles. This year’s parade will include over 90 projects, including those by Jim Drain, Barry McGee, Clare Rojas, Beta Tank, Yoko Ono, Dzine, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black and Kenny Scharf, and will involve over 900 participants, making this the largest and most dynamic Art Parade yet.

Deitch Gallery is the best! (seriously check out their site) I imagine that their parade will be lots o fun AND they are doing some event with East Village Radio on Sunday. The Vivian Girls, one of my new favorite bands, will be playing live- jfyi.

Put two of my favorites together and I’ll like it

Hooray!  It’s Regina Spektor and Ben Folds.  I like them both and maybe they should make out, huh? This reminds me of a Mac ad, though but it is good mood music. 

And here is Andre 3000 + John Legend!  Good song tag-team style. Maybe they should make out too! This one is dancey.

Like the song, not the video- thoughts?

I saw Yelle play last winter and I think she is adorable. I think this song is great but not so certain how I feel about the video…and are her outfits McDonald’s themed? I can’t tell.

Snoop Bolly Dog

Yo, what up. This Big Snoop Dogg. Represent the Punjabi. Aye ya, hit em with this

Snoop Dog makes his Bollywood debut in a movie called Singh is Kinng. I’m going to netflix the crap out of this movie- it sounds amazing. From BBC…

Fusing hip hop and bhangra, Dogg appears in the film with leading Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, singing the eponymous title track.The song has already made it to the top of the Bollywood music charts and is a hit at Indian nightclubs.

Sadly, I have plans tomorrow

But if I didn’t, I’d totes be there:

Are you a crazed Of Montreal fan? Do you live in or near New York City? Are you 21 or older? Well do I have some good news for you. Of Montreal guitarist and all-around swell fella the Late B.P. Helium posted this message on the E6 Townhall:

hey kids,

there will be a small listening party for Skeletal Lamping at a bar in Manhattan tomorrow night, July 23rd.

the bar is called HI-FI. it’s 21+
the address is 169 Avenue A.

He also added that the record will be played likely between 10pm and 12:30am. Oh, and there’s a $3 beer special. In Kentucky, $3 beer isn’t exactly special; but I guess that’s New York for you, beer costs three bucks, but you get to hear the new Of Montreal record early.

that’s from YANP

This is what I woke up to this morning

Nora and I have a very fun getting ready for work in the morning ritual.  It usually involves some singing.. either an original song with music and lyrics by Nora (i.e. the classic hit, Emily Is My Roommate), or whatever song is stuck in our heads when we wake up.  Today, Nora sang this tune while showering.  Happy Tuesday.

childhood memories + Usher = weird feelings

I can’t tell you how many birthday party celebrations I attended at Showbiz Pizza (now Chuck E. Cheese). Maybe it was a midwest thing because a most of my New York friends don’t know what it is, but I have many fond memories of these mechanical monstrosities. Two dudes- Chris Thrash and Aaron Fetcher, have reprogrammed them to sing Usher and MGMT and then posted them on youtube- brills! You can even vote on which song you want them to choreograph for the Rock-afire Explosion! next (it takes over 40 hours of work per song! woa.) HERE.

She’s just bein’ Miley

New Miley Cyrus!  Alert the masses!  And no, I’m not being ironic.  I love her.

I have a pop music addition.   Nora said to me last night when I was singing 702’s 1998 hit, Where My Girls At, “Your knowledge of terrible music never ceases to amaze me.”  I’d embed that video too, but YouTube won’t let me.

Do the girls in the Miley video look WAY too young to be crying about boys?  I think yes.  I think I was still really into dinosaurs when I was that old.  And space!  No boys.

Old Kids on the Block?

I like what has to say about this…

Ohhhhh man. So this is really happening, huh. The New Kids on the Block have reunited. And not just for a tour, mind you. This unholy (re)union will also involve the release of an album which, from the sound of things, is going to make Donna Summer’s Crayons sound like the fucking Immaculate Collection by comparison. (That’s not nice, actually. We like “Stamp Your Feet” just fine. Really, we do)

The real kicker, though, for us, is this video. Couldn’t someone have told Jonathan , Jordan, Joey, Danny, and Donny that the mid-90’s are pretty thoroughly over, and that nobody (and by nobody, we mean NOBODY) makes videos like this anymore? Sheesh. Good luck, guys.

Yeah, good luck guys. You’re going to make a killing on the tour…

puff daddy colognes his balls

from some blog that was on gawker, that is quoting an article from the daily mail about puff daddy’s pre-going-out rituals:

“While I’m getting ready I like to relax with a drink – vodka and lemonade – and listen to some James Brown.
To make matters worse, the Didster, splashes on his cologne all over his newly waxed genitals.

Then I’ll have a manicure and pedicure – and yes, I wax as well. Men owe it to women to make sure they are well-groomed.”

i like the idea that puff daddy would say this because i already hate him so much.

Above is Diddy’s catchphrase a la Making the Band.. (I’m jumping in on this post, sorry Dan), but I think the real question is where does waxing your balls fall on the no bitchassness scale?  Cause, I’m thinking the two don’t go together.  -EM

final thoughts, via Gchat:

Dan: 1. i couldnt bring myself to post a picture of him
Dan: 2. i refuse to call him anything other than puff daddy
Dan:   the waxing doesn’t bother me too much
its the cologne on the balls after the waxing
1. that probably really hurts
me: i think waxing your balls makes you full of bitchassness
Dan: 2. that can’t be good for anyone

Kesha is hot

My sister and I met this girl at this hotel we stayed in in Guatemala. She was really nice and told us to check out her myspace. She has a record deal and claimed she sounded like a mix between MIA and Beck. Oh and one of her songs (Backstabber) was on the Hills. Listen to Boots and Boys.

Does it offend you, yeah?

ok, im upping the hipster quotient with this post. found this little piece about making a good band name and the author is british so he uses funny worlds like ‘rubbish’. cute and informative.

and personally, i like the name ‘does it offend you, yeah?’ and their music (or what i have heard so far). i can’t wait for a band to include a mom joke in their name.,,2264652,00.html
