You remember how my mom loves Keane? She just sent me an email to say that Keane were the guests on Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge on Thursday and they did a mix of “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child and “Dirrty” by Xtina, which they dubbed “Dirrtylicious”.
You can listen to the track on Keane’s Myspace profile.
Bonnie R. kicked George L.‘s butt in the Stephen Colbert Green Screen Challenge with her awesome video of Stephen as the freedom fighter in a video game. Watch her winning entry, and let freedom ring, nation!

…there’s a movie called “Definitely, Maybe” and it has NOTHING to do with Liam or Noel Gallagher.
Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore? The crew will be doing a location shoot on E. 45th Street between Lex and 3rd on Monday, October 2nd. Dare you to get a boom box and continually blast “Live Forever” at them all day long.
Oh and PS- the film is written and will be directed by the same dude who did not doÂ Bridget Jones’s Diary but Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. And in case you were wondering, yes, he’s Canadian. Yeahh…..
Utako Wakamatsu and Jean-Sebastien Fecteau‘s ice skating version of OK Go’s “Million Ways” video is awesome/terrifying and all, but you really should have seen the Russian couple after them that did an interpretation of “Sexy/Back”.

I started laughing so hard after looking at this picture someone found on Dlisted of Julian Casablancas shopping with Drew Barrymore in LA:
Oh summer, we hardly new ya! Now you’re already slipping away before our very eyes. Wah!
Although I look forward to wearing fall clothing, I’ll kinda miss summer. The outdoor events, the BBQ, the rooftop drinking, open toed shoes, sundresses, etc.
How do you plan on whooping up your last days of summer? By singing the Ataris version of “Boys of Summer” while riding in a convertable with the top down? Oh…is that just me?
Tricia Romano at the Village Voice did a round-up of how the usual NYC suspects spent their days of verano. Yours truly has gone on record by saying my summer was spent being (not-so-secretly) emo. I crack up when I read that. Hahahah.

In a highly entertaining video of a performance of metal rock tribute band Metal Skool at LA’s Key Club, they “drag” Kelly Clarkson and new boyfriend Ryan “lead singer of Yellowcard” Key up on stage and do a rendition of “Sweet Child Of Mine” and later “Don’t Stop Believing”. Wearing a school girl-ish white shirt with Peter Pan collar and sweater vest, she looks totally out of place onstage with all the metal hair and spandex.

If it was truly spontaneous and not some organized PR stunt, Kelly was a pretty great sport about the whole thing, even swigging straight from a bottle of whiskey–and she sounded AWESOME btw. The most fun (and most talented) American Idol, for sure! I love her.

…because he is a indie marketing genius.
I kinda wish DeBarge In Charge really had a Tapes ‘n’ Tapes MP3 posted up.
PS- the T ‘n T drummer looks SO CUTE in this video!
Ok so part of me goes to Pool Parties on Sundays just to check out what people are wearing. Yesterday was no exception.
Now I’m sure someone who reads this blog probably knows this boy–so if you do, WHY IS YOUR FRIEND WEARING A BLACK LONG-SLEEVED SWEATER IN 80 DEGREE WEATHER? I mean, c’mon! How is he not soping wet with sweat? Peter thought that maybe he had his sweat glads removed, or there was also the theory that “some skinny dudes just don’t sweat.”
Meanwhile I looked like a clammy mess. Thanks guy, for making me look like an unkept, scraggly wet sponge, while you looked cool and collected, snapping your fingers and reading On the Road. Daaammmmnnnyyouuuu!
Ok, I can’t even make this stuff up…
Doesn’t the guy with the white shoes look like the dude from the Ataris circa 2003 Warped Tour?
That dude now.
