LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

by

Barkers

  • Check out the Kinks performing "Days" at the Top of the Pops. Very gear. (YouTube)   
  • "I Should Be Proud" by Martha and the Vandellas. Sadly still relevant today, but a real beauty. (The Number One Songs in Heaven)
  • "Blues Cha-Cha" by Edgar Blanchard and the Gondoliers. A little instrumental in honor of New Orleans. Put on your dancing shoes. (Home of the Groove)
  • "It’s Da Summa Tyme" by Frayser Boy. In honor of Three 6 Mafia‘s Oscar win, Can I Bring My Gat brings you a song that sounds like "Memphis in the Summer." (Can I Bring My Gat?)
  • Patrik Sjöberg by Hemstad. A fun but somewhat melancholy instrumental from Sweden that reminds a little of Felt. The drummer is super energetic.(Catbird Seat)
  • "Love Me Do" and "I Saw Her Standing There" by Beatle Barkers. Everybody loves dogs. Everybody loves the Beatles. So why wouldn’t everybody love dogs barking Beatles songs? (Frank’s Vinyl Museum)

SIZZLER: Brooke Hogan Drops Digits

by

Hulk_hoganAccording to this message board, Hulk Hogan’s not-quite-legal-yet daughter Brooke gave her number to an over-anxious Chili’s waiter over the weekend. The classy guy couldn’t help but post about it.

i waited on hulk hogan’s daughter last night…i think her name is
brooke right?..anywho…she left me a very nice tip and on the credit
card receipt she scribbled "you’re hot…gimmie a call sometime…her
digits…xoxo"

Reading the thread, it sounds like he’s probably not going to call her– a decision that angered some wrestling fans. Some of the responses are hilarious. Like:

Dude. This is the Hulkster we’re talking about. Not Leaping Lenny
Poffo. Retrieve her number, call her up, and get in that squared
circle!!

Guys! Come on! Have you ever seen Hogan Knows Best? The Hulkster tracks his daughter with a GPS device! And just try to think about what you’re gonna do, when those 24" pythons run wild on you. This guy made the right call.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Behind The D-Bag: Scott Stapp

by

It’s about time VH1 created a Behind The Music spin-off. This Behind The Douchebag has potential… and I couldn’t think of a better subject than Scott Stapp. Watch the video and you’ll see why.

Note: I’m well aware this isn’t an actual VH1 show… just play along.

WHILE YOU WERE ADDING “CRASH” TO YOUR NETFLIX QUEUE

  • Crash was the surprise winner for Best Picture. Racism 1, Homosexuality (and the anguish of forbidden love regardless of your sexuality set to a haunting guitar riff) 0.
  • Brokeback Mountain did win the top prizes at the Independent Spirit Awards. Well, that’s something, I guess.
  • Jon Stewart got mixed reviews ranging from two thumbs up from Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper to the Washington Post‘s Tom Shales urging him to "keep your ‘Daily’ job." Anyone who writes "keep your ‘Daily’ job" is automatically disqualified from judging Jon Stewart.
  • Everyone’s favorite moment of the night was the performance by Three 6 Mafia. Boy, that witch can sing! 
  • TomKat were given the Razzie for "most tiresome tabloid targets." They may be true, but at the Razzies ceremony they gave the most beautiful acceptance speech I’ve ever heard.
  • A non-award item: One of the women in the Kid Rock/Scott Stapp sex tape has got a little lawsuit going on against sites planning to sell the tape. I have to side with her on this one. I mean, the woman had sex with Scott Stapp. Hasn’t she suffered enough?
