Well nearly four years later, I’m eating my words. Despite the fact that the Mraz song “I’m Yours” was apparently a huge hit in 2008 (and recently nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award for Song of the Year), I’d never heard it until his live performance on tonight’s SNL. Sure, Mraz has always leaned on the reggae-influenced, hippy dippy side, but surprisingly this song is incredibly charming and catchy.
The live version he did on SNL is actually superior than the version from the album:
Ok, so sometimes I’m a bit slow to catch on the things happening on the internets, but I semi-try to keep informed… here are some new music videos that have sprung up in the last week from some notable people who at one time could have been described as “hot messes” or “trainwrecks” but have seem to cleaned up their acts for the time being:
Ultragrrrl linked to a video of Lily Allen’s new song “The Fear.” I think Lily looks AMAZING. With her jet black hair hanging long, and the bangs going across her face, I think she looks like a white Gogo from Kill Bill walking through a Gwen Stefani Harajuku Lovers TV commercial. It was directed by Nez.
Recently I’ve been expressing my fascination/obsession with the Jonas Brothers to a few friends. Well, sometimes mentioning random musings to people yields hilarious results, as is the case this week. My friend who works at Neighborhoodies took it upon himself to pitch the below t-shirt in their daily idea meeting.
What is a “bonus Jonas,” you may ask? The Jonas Brothers is band comprised of three real-life brothers: Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas. But according to a recent New York Times article, they have a 7-year-old younger brother named Frankie–and for better or worse, their father touts him as “the Bonus Jonas.”
“Bonus Jonas” has since become a hilarious catchphrase among young adults and teens who are Jonas Brothers fans/detractors.
RyanLvr: Are they datinggg?
TMA: Dunno, does going to comic book stores constitute dating?
RyanLvr: Hahaha. Come on, hes TOUCHING her! My guy friends don’t touch me like that unless they’re gay–and HE’S NOT.
All I care about is the fact that Ryan still looks like Boober (natch) from Fraggle Rock.
In honor of the US release of Kylie Minogue‘s new album X, which is already certified platinum in the U.K. and Australia, I’m holding a contest for a prize pack including the U.K. Enhanced CD single of “2 Hearts”, stickers, poster, and postcards.
I wasn’t fortunate enough to see them live in concert when they were popular in the early 90s. My mom wouldn’t let me go to any of their concerts (too young) but now 20 years later, I’m er… old enough to do WHATEVER I WANT, MOM!
Danny looked SO old on the Today Show. The Knight brothers still look very young, and Donnie looks older but still good (WALHBERG’S FOREVER!), and of course Joey Mac (my favorite) is still hot and adorable. I love their WICKED MAAAAAAASS accents.
According to the interview, they plan on doing FULL DANCE ROUTINES on the new tour. I CANNOT WAIT! That’s going to be so awesome.
So I’ve sorta been watching American Idol every week, and I basically hate all the contestants except David Cook, who I lovingly refer to as “the Creed guy” because he totally sings like one of those dudes in some “rock” band from Canada or who loves Jesus. I missed this week but was pleased to see pictures and footage of the show which showed a remarkable change in David’s outward appearance: David Cook’s “emover” (aka the “emo combover”) has disappeared!
