Coldplay Live on Letterman in NYC – 9/20/11

Longtime readers of this site will already be accustomed to my undying, uncool devotion to the British “rock” band Coldplay. But it is due to this broadcasting of affection that people end up being so generous whenever the band rolls into town. Thanks to the unbelievable kindness of Product Shop NYC, last night I was […]

Vintage Photo of Gwyneth Paltrow Swooning Over Chris Martin

I’ve recently taken on the task of going through and tagging all my old photos, and it’s pretty hysterical the things I end up finding. I’ve probably told the story about a very surreal Romeo and Juliet moment that all of Bowery Ballroom witnessed in August 2002, during an impossibly hard to get into “secret” […]

Inside Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s TriBeCa Home

If you’ve recently been perusing Curbed.com, you may have seen an item about some a blog post about a 2008 job done by hotter than hot interior design team Roman & Williams for “an actress, her musician husband, and their children.” Doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it’s none other than Coldplay’s Chris […]

Dear Grammys…

…don’t ever make me watch the Jonas Brothers perform with Stevie Wonder ever again. It’s just too painful. …watching a uber pregnant M.I.A. perform alongside T.I., Jay-Z, and Lil’ Wayne, was awesome. She is possibly the coolest woman in music EVER. …make all of Coldplay wear the same purple outfits that Will Champion was wearing. […]

The Greatest Christmas Songs Ever

There are only about 2 and 1/2 weeks until. This makes me sad because there are only 2 and 1/2 more weeks for me to totally indulge in Christmas music. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I became totally obsessed with listening to Christmas music. This year I started listening to yuletide tunes […]

Coldplay’s Chris Martin Dances Like a Crazy Person

Before I head off to sleepy land, I had to share this with the rest of the world. Methinks this video is just BEGGING for some kind of video remix action. Seriously… does Chris have ants in his pants? Taken at tonight’s Coldplay show at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ: Nothing Earth-shattering happened […]

Coldplay vs. Coldplay: Which “Viva La Vida” Video Is Better?

Coldplay have released two videos for “Viva La Vida” today, one is the “official” version, directed by Hype Williams: The other is a “cover” version made by the band, which features Chris Martin wandering around a town and grassy hill wearing a comical king hat and robe, carrying a print of “Liberty Leading the People,” […]

Download: Pendulum Cover Coldplay’s “Violet Hill”

Today Aussie drum and bass band Pendulum were on Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge (er… minus Jo, who was ill today) and as is tradition, they performed a cover version of a current popular song. Which did they choose? “Violet Hill” by Coldplay! It wasn’t really my style of music, but it was definitely a re-imagining […]
