On a second watching, “Be-Weave” was not that funny. Here are a bunch of attempts to make up for that.
Via PRI’s The World, check out this retro-soul band from Australia called The Bamboos. Most of their songs are pretty good, but on their current album one of their songs is sung by a guest singer who calls himself King Merc. The story behind him is amazing (if it’s true): He was mistaken for a soldier of fortune and was imprisoned on a Pacific island stockade for 20 years where he passed the time signing in the prison church and listening to the only record available, Al Green’s “I’m Still In Love With You.”
How about that new Brandon Flower’s video? Not satisfied? Just want Killers? Well they played the White House Lawn for its 4th of July Party and did “God Bless America.”
More music that is on heavy rotation lately is Big Boi’s Mixtape For Dummies. It’s basically a bunch of previously released Outkast stuff mixed together to promote his new solo album, Sir Lucious Left Foot, the Son of Chico Dusty.
Sometimes movies go straight to video because studios can’t figure out way to market them. Videogum proclaimed “Operation Endgame” the best straight-to-video movie ever; with Adam Scott, Zach Galifianakis, Rob Cordry and a bunch of others, I really hope so.
