Not sure if anyone else will find this fun-fact-of-the-day as interesting/humorous as I do, but apparently Winona Ryder has dated a large number of fairly well known musicians. Go to thisAOL Spinner Blog to see a slideshow of the many beaux. In fact, in writing this, I found another website that aparently keeps track of all the celebrities she has dated. Dating a Monkee is pretty impressive. Dating Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows is not that impressive. He could have his own slideshow of all the celebrities that he has been “romantically linked to.”
Anyways, check out the site I found out about this, I AM FUEL, YOU ARE FRIENDS to hear a nice little mixtape dedicated to this.

While I am lukewarm to their other songs, Motorcycle, by the Rumble Strips is phenomenal. They are finally going to do a tour of the US with the Cold War Kids, but Chicago ain’t on the tour. I first fell in love with them from their music video for it. Check them out.
It took me a little while for the Detroit Cobras to grow on me. They are strictly a cover band; they find obscure songs that most have forgot about. The music has got a great garage rock sound and the lead singer, Rachel Nagy, can really wail. Check out their myspace or go to Aural Fitness and check out their review of a recent show. There is another website that has done stories about the songs they have covered. I don’t know if it is still working, but you can check that that out too at http://detroitcobracovers.blogspot.com/
So I have never pretended to be “up” on music. Usually a band gets played on the radio, gets their song on a commercial, or they are written about in 50 other blogs before I decide to listen to a song. Junior Senior released their current cd August 14, but I am riding the wave now. Anywho, check out their song “Can I get, get, get” on their myspace. The video ain’t that bad either; they did the “send us you dancing to our song and YOU might be in the next Junior Senior video”. Its ok to like them, so many others do. The video after the jump.
- Just when I think this Cee Lo song is done, it finds another way to be funny/relevant. This time it was on Colbert Report substituting the swears with “Fox News.”
- Christmas songs are back. Tegan and Sara do the Chipmunk Song.
- Via Berkeley Place, White Stripes/Rap mashup album. It is not any worse than the Jay-Z/Hendrix mashup.
- Joan should be interested in Avett Brothers and G.Love.
