++Hey man...quit picking on Cool Mayor. He's cooly thinking of a way to come up with the money.(Do I hear the sound of a million stand up comedians/ late night monologue writers rushing to come up with "fiber" jokes?)
++Jenny Lewis wants more people shouting the word Glendora at her, apparently.
++Nothing revolutionary, but I like the meeting of katebush and house happening here.
++I might be down to buy me a Scary Lucy tee if anyone's slinging those yet. Or is that already over?
++Antoine Careme, creator of the Vol au vent, is described as one of the first celebrity chefs. Yeah, but he's no "celebrity mountain lion."
++From the inbox : Kirk Von Hammett is throwing the second annual San Jose Fear FestEvil.( Clever.) Guests will include Slash, Bela Lugosi Jr., and High on Fire. More info here.
++Well,it took for GD ever but I think I got a live one worth listening to today, pals. A feel good travelogue from Scary Little Friends.
++On the local news last night, Kathy Vara spoke the words: "Celebrity Mountain Lion."
++lol.2: "O U GON DRANK."
++Trailers and movies are always talkin bout chosen ones and the hero's destiny in big letters. Just once I'd love it if the bold text between shots "Destiny says: "I'll pass."
++Soomeone doesn't like Fort Worth, Texas.
++Amy Schumer used to date a wrestler named Dolph Ziggler whose real name was Nick Nemeth, which also wouldn't have been a bad wrestling name. I think another fun job would be to be a wrestling manager because those people get paid to look disgusted, which is how I walk around looking in everyday life anyway.
I'd kinda forgotten about Mayer Hawthorne til I read about this Tuxedo thing he does with Jake One. 2008 is kind of eons ago in internet years.
++I think a Fun. job to have would be the person who puts the graphics behind the band or singer on those large screens. Was just watching this old Sade jammie recently and I love the strategic timing of the "draaaaap" at (1:15).
If I was in charge I'd go 'nanners with giant groupspeak talking heads, or dirty/lewd or funny (drunk elephants) a la Fantasia. As it relates to the music, of course. I've seen some great usage of the medium but in general bands don't harness the potential of visual possibilities nearly enough. You could even link to photos (political or meme) during stage banter...
++Song I sing a few times a day: "🎶Got-ta get my phone, back to the chaaaaaar-ger.🎶"
++I read something about Seinfeld watching this off-Broadway play called Hamilton and his wife raving about Lin Manuel Miranda. (Deservedly so.) I'm more of a Thommy Jeffs girl but have to admit I'd probably see this if it comes to LA.
++The AbFab remake only starring this lady instead. (Not to be confused with singing with melasmas. Whole different genre.)
++Still a bunch of cuties those Turby Fruits, they are.
++Derren Brown: Am I going to watch this? 47 minutes is a long time and I kinda hate pranksters.
++I remember years back on Twitter people would rag on Jessie J's tenacity and look.. she's still here. I keep hoping one day he'll graduate to a 3rd chain like a black belt. Also, does he feel pressure not to get fat & avoid 2 chins jokes? (I feel like I stole that.)
++LA sure does love them some Dead Sara the way they love white painted antlers as decor. How does a band get local fave status? I always assume it has to do with knowing one of the Willis daughters, Tracey Anderson or Soleil Moon Frye or perhaps some combo of the three. (Who am I Alan Turing? You figure it out!) Then word spreads and you get fast-tracked to fame and sh-t, like a Disney fastpass.
++Ellen's shoes on that Time cover were kinda fire?
++Things I Now Know: PBR&B is a portmanteau for PBR and R&B. Oy. I just can't keep up anymore. (Where's the singing with melasma genre, internet, ya smart ass?)
++I've been on this super boring Sade/JD Souther/James Taylor/Carly Simon kick that's redundant to discuss. Only new thing to point out is this guy playing cowbell in this video (3:31).
Also, I wish I had screen-shotted it, because now it's gone or I can't find it...but there was some great shade thrown in James Taylor's wikipedia entry in which he made a comeback joke about him saying how he once played a club in the 70s, or so he was told because he couldn't remember it because of his addiction. And it said "Taylor had told that joke many times before at other shows." Jeez, cut a dude some slack!
++Heyy, speaking of nostalgia, what happened to fun, just-couldn't-be-bothered bro bands? Come back bro bands. (From the NBA 2k10 soundtrack.)
