Edwards/Bacon ’08

Its too bad Edwards dropped out of the race, cause Kevin changed my mind.


If IU had a theme song…

So it is official Lizzy and I have decided on our IU theme song, Justice’s “We Are Your Friends”. It is definitely our favorite dancing songs and I sing to myself all the time at practice. Though we have taken this idea to an extreme and began developing an entire IU soundtrack. Other record hits include the classic Biz Markie “Just a Friend”, Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”, and Timbaland’s “Release” featuring Justin Timberlake. Clearly we like to dance but obviously Timbaland makes the hits. This originally started out as a post about how awesome Justice is so check them out. Also they will be playing in Chicago at the Rivera in March. I will not be going due to polo but envious because Lizzy probably will and so should you! They are said to be the next Daft Punk, silly I know but they still rock.


Believe the Hype

Hype machine post

No matter how much I like a radio station, whether on the web or on my boom box, I get tend to get annoyed with either commercials, the same songs being played, the dj’s. My most recent music source is Hype Machine (if you couldn’t tell from every post from me linking to it). The site is a collection of many different music blogs and was recently resdesigned so that it will play the mp3s from those sites easily.

It is great for listening to songs of newer bands that aren’t necessarily on their myspace, looking for a mix of a song, or find blogs with similar tastes. You can read the post and decide if you are cool enough to rep the band or you can just take the mp3 that they are posting for your next mix.

Just yesterday I found a website blog that had mp3s of David Lee Roth‘s voice isolated on “Running with the Devil” and Dr. Dre and Ice Cube (from a precursor to NWA called CIA) sounding a lot like they were RUN DMC. Also check out the new Gnarls Barkley.


Back, Back, Up…

Three simple instructions to doing the perfect Teen Wolf dance and thus ruling the world — or at least your high school and my heart. I think I am correct in assuming everyone here to be well versed in TW and TW2, which is why you’ll appreciate the following: http://www.nbc.com/30_Rock/video/#mea=166060

Now I don’t know much about 30 Rock, but I do know that I want to see more of this Werewolf Bar Mitzvah video, because it’s solid gold. I was also looking to include the prom scene from Teen Wolf, but I couldn’t find it alone, so you’ll just have to enjoy this extended series of great clips. You can skip ahead, but I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lNvXTnXp3k

I am pretty sure that in am still equally in love with Scott Howard, Alex P Keaton, and Marty McFly — truth be told, I was a bit of a childhood crush whore.



reminder coverFeist released Reminder back in May and it still popular.  She released her latest single “Feel It All” from the album earlier this week.  Not only is it a good album, but the videos for the songs off it are great.  All are done with director Patrick Daughters and also done in single shots.  You probably have seen a portion of the video for 1,2,3,4 on the Ipod mini commercials.  Even when she was on the late night shows she tried to do some cool things.  Here is the video plus some other ones that I found after the jump.
