The Raconteurs were in Jo Whiley‘s Live Lounge this past Thursday, doing a rendition of “Steady as She Goes” and answering questions. Check it out!

Speaking of Jo Whiley, I’ll be on again tomorrow AM talking about all things NYC, so keep an ear open!
Wishing Miss Audrey “Melody Nelson“ a very happy birthday! We love you so much that we ventured outdoors and risked our pasty complexions to celebrate your special day. I struggled with the concept of shooting in the DAYLIGHT. (Seriously, is this how most normal people see the world?) Holy cow! We cheered when your new song with Die Romantik, “Elisa”, was first spun. Here’s to you, kid!

Check out how STUNNING Audrey looked! If “foxy” was a six letter word, it would be spelt “A-U-D-R-E-Y” …And check out how retardedly beautiful/hot/cute the other party-goers were–you kids are so pretty, I do declare, you give me the vapors.
More photos after the jump…

Yup, I said it…I used the term “Peengate” while talking about Fall Out Boy on Jo Whiley‘s show Tuesday morning. You can listen to the broadcast over at the Radio 1 site. Click on “Tuesday” and you should hear me talking about dodgeball, bling rings, Arctic Monkeys, and “Peengate” an hour and 40 minutes into the broadcast.
Also, anyone interested in the site I mentioned when talking about costume jewlery, head over to The Carrot Box.

I wish I’d been able to post this earlier, but Death Flu 2006 had me away from my beloved computer for the last 5 days or so…but better late than never, right? I’m here to tell you to be sure to check out my friend Imran Ahmed’s weekly radio show, OneClick Magazine, on BBC Radio 1 right here.
You should listen to every episode because Imran is awesome, but the special treat this week is that you can hear me talking with Imran about very important and newsworthy topics like skull & crossbones, Kidz Bop, and YouTube.com.
It was recorded last week, so try this drinking game: Every time you can hear a sound that signals the imminent decline of my health in the broadcast, do a shot.
Go about 15 minutes into the broadcast, and there I’ll be. You can listen to the show through March 21. Be sure to note how I laugh at myself for actually saying “My Humps” on the radio.

Check out the Village Voice cover story about “celebrity djs” written by Ms. Tricia Romano. She explores the world of rock star picking up extra cash, keeping themselves occupied from hookers and blow, and much more. My favorite thing about this article is that it concentrates on whether or not some of these rockers are “djs” as opposed to figuring out if some of these musicians are “celebrities.”
Actually, speaking of DJs, check out this video of DFA-family member The Juan Maclean doing a live DJ set last week in Seattle:

Does sipping mojitos by the poolside with a bevvy of beautiful (and scantilly-clad) lady friends sound like your idea of a good time?

And you also get to subject hundreds of helpless party goers to your very own musical DJ stylings? Are you pumped? If so, then congratulations–here’s your chance, courtesy of the Village Voice:

I have no fecking clue whether Eastport is (or isn’t) a clothing, accessories, or jewlery company, but I love this photo The MisShapes have on their MySpace. Unlike the Vanity Fair cover, in this case pale = awesome.
Woah! This is NUTS. Hot off the PR press:
Mylo has been forced to cancel his forthcoming dates in the U.S. due to a hearing condition.
Having contracted a virus over the Christmas period which has caused him temporary hearing loss, Mylo had been advised to cancel live shows in Japan and Australia at the start of the year. He had hoped that his condition would recover sufficiently to allow him to perform live shows in the U.S., unfortunately his recovery is very slow and no real progress has been made. As he has been recommended to completely recover he has been advised by his doctor not to commit to anything further at least until the end of February. Â Mylo deeply regrets having to cancel the dates.
However, even though Mylo will not be able to tour the U.S. as planned, his new release Destroy Rock & Roll will be available in the States on February 7th.
Here’s to Mylo getting better soon!
