The Strokes "Heart In A Cage" (via The Modern Age)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Gold Lion" (via Product Shop)

Improve your street cred by watching these videos from everybody’s favorite New York hipsters The Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I love that The Strokes are finally making real videos now (does anybody remember "Hard to Explain"?), and "Gold Lion" proves that Fire + Karen O is a can’t miss combination.  Enjoy.

  • Isaac Mizrahi refuses to "put a mask on to meet people" in response to the controversy he caused at the Golden Globes. And that’s fine, we’re just asking him not to grope women.
  • Kate Moss is possibly pregnant again. That’s actually not funny at all.
  • In a surprising parallel to her 2002 movie The Sweetest Thing, a bird(tin foil duck) flies splat into Cameron Diaz’s windshield. A striking example of life imitating sh*t.
  • Angelina Jolie plans to drop food on needy people’s heads. Maybe the impact will make them forget they’re so hungry.
  • Tom and Katie are still together. Don’t believe them? Check out this hot n heavy bear hug.

  • John Legend is "playing the sex angle up a little bit." JFK would approve.
  • Lindsay Lohan snubbed Kimberly Stewart at a recent party. Jimmy Carter mediated, and all is well.
  • Keira Knightley hates her boobs, just like Mary Todd Lincoln.
  • Simon Cowell is a total liar, but Gerald Ford pardoned him.
  • Brokeback Mountain won four BAFTAs (British Academy Film Awards) last night. George W. Bush said now he totally has to see it.
  • Madonna pats herself on the back for doing something Eleanor Roosevelt could do with one hand tied behind her back.

Are Fat Kids Having the Best Week Ever?

The kids of MTV’s Fat Camp are the talk of the town or at least of this blog. For those of you who haven’t yet caught the special, imagine Laguna Beach sprinkled with the Biggest Loser and sauteed in Wet Hot American Summer to create meal of high-calorie fun. 

While there’s mysteriously no Fat Camp details on the MTV’s homepage, we’re providing a temporary outpost for all things Camp Pocono Trails.  With our readers’ help we hunted down the amazing Myspace pages of Chelsea, Matt and (ladies’ choice) Petey. Note the Smirnoff bottles, the pop songs and the bikini clad models they splash all over their profiles.  Judging from their pages, they’re  ready to rock n’ roll as MTV stars, so lets help make them famous.
