  • Say it isn’t so! Page Six reports the best show on television may be canceled (No, not Arrested Development)
  • R. Kelly has even more secrets besides peeing on a teenager.
  • Forbes publishes it’s annual top earners in rock list or as we like to call it The Beatles-and-the Rolling Stones-are-still-rich list.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal was supposed to be the third person in the now imfamous Vanity Fair cover shoot. But it made more sense to have an arrogant sexually-ambiguous clothing designer replace him.
  • Ashton Kutcher makes digital media development deal. Hey Ashton, do we have to call this money-making scheme a "scientific experiment" too?

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Only In Kenya

by

KenyaI’m not sure why, but I’m pretty sure this is my favorite video on the internet. I really hope "Only in Kenya" becomes the next "Crazy Frog."  Watch it now!

After watching the video for about 4 minutes I thought, "I hope this never ends." Then, at about the 12 minute mark I thought, "Okay, nevermind." But still.

What’s your favorite part? Is it the adorable dancing lion?  Is it the random calling out of Norway? Is it the song? Or is it the slogan "Kenya Believe It?"

I don’t know what mine is, but I do know one thing: I want to go to Kenya. Because they have lions and tigers.

LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • I’m a suedehead, I’ll admit. But I’m not sure what to make of this Suedehead ‘sparks’ remix from underground express. Anything fueled by smart-tart flavored booze ain’t made for me and the Moz. But it’s worth a listen.
  • Joanna by Peasant is a sweet lil ditty hosted by saidthegramaphone that involves lots of soft knee slapping and maraca shaking.  it’s tenderly mix-tape-worthy if you’re feeling sentimental.
  • Here’s what I love about Bishop Allen: their internet roots. Remember Spark.com, that awesome home for death, personality and purity tests? Bandmate Christian Rudder is using his Barnes and Noble buyout money to tour with this lovable, airy band who sound like the musical version of that cheeky pre-blogging site. Turn up Things are What You Make of Them.
  • I love The Clash. Thanks comboplates for this softly ska-punk Wrong Em Boyo
  • Roots Reggae rocks and so does Jamaican born John Holt. Check out Riding For a Fall at diddywah
  • This rendition of Blondie’s CALL ME will send shivers down yer timbers. Collin Couvillion turns this frothy 70′s pop song into a haunting stalker’s anthem.

Mardi Gras: Show Us Your Brit S.

Britney_spears_125541a

Here’s something from the AP:

Britney Spears, a Louisiana native, will celebrate Mardi Gras in New
Orleans…: ”I am honored to be a part of the Mardi
Gras celebration in New Orleans this year,” Spears said in a statement
Monday. ”It is so important for this amazing city to continue its
annual traditions and I am really looking forward to being involved.”

…Last
week, photos were published of Spears driving with her 4-month-old son,
Sean Preston, sitting on her lap instead of being strapped to a car
seat in the back seat…. On Monday, Transportation
Secretary Norman Mineta chided Spears as ”irresponsible” for driving
with her baby son on her lap and announced a new initiative to improve
child car seat safety.

Meanwhile, the Vice President of the United States shot someone in the face.

While You Were Sleeping With Your Eyes Open

  • After years and years of late night monologue jokes, Calista Flockhart finally eats a sandwich (or forty).
  • The trailer for Will Ferrell’s new NASCAR-themed movie Talladega Nights has hit the Internets.  As excited as you think you are, your enthusiasm is no match for the financial horniness of Sony Pictures, who can hardly contain their desire to roll around in all the money this movie is going to make them.
  • Could Bandidas be the way newer, way spicier, WAY BETTER Brokeback Mountain?
  • Could someone tell the Germans to stop being so German?
  • ‘Jaws’ author Peter Benchley has passed away, and Hollywood is already preparing to defile his legacy with a completely unnecessary re-make.
  • Jessica Simpson cheesy bites game soundboard Pizza Hut thing.  I have no idea.

Dick Hunt

by

Dick_hunt_1I was wondering when the first Dick Cheney / Duck Hunt video would get posted on the internet. It didn’t take long at all.

Now, by no means is this overly entertaining. Unless of course you happen to be a big Aerosmith fan or a big fan of watching somebody repeatedly getting their head shot off. If either of those two things sound appealing, click here.

If not, don’t click. Instead, just feel good about the fact that Dick Cheney shooting a man in the face is probably the least evil thing he’s done all week.

Grey’s Anatomy Writes Its Wrongs

by

Greysanatomy_150x225

If you didn’t get enough Grey’s Anatomy after last night’s episode, check out the blog maintained by the show’s writers. The talented staff, responsible for making hospitals combine  elements of a college dormitory and the last twenty minutes of Die Hard, have created a site where they can justify their writing. In today’s post, show creator ‘Shonda’ explains:

"I’ve heard a lot of talk about Meredith being whiny but the truth is, she’s got a mom with Alzheimer’s, no other family to speak of, and the man she loves is married.She’s pretty freaking lonely, people.  She’s got a right to get her whine on."

Is this really about Meredith?

Is Leo Sayer Having the Best Week Ever?

by

Okay, you might not know who Leo Sayer is, but you know his songs, especially "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" and "When I Need You." (He also looks a little Richard Simmons, but that’s beside the point.)

Anyway, we haven’t seen much of him since the late ’70s, but now he might just be having the Best Week Ever. Check it out:

[A] remix of a 29-year-old Leo Sayer obscurity puts the erstwhile British star on top of the singles chart. "Thunder In My Heart" by Meck featuring Leo Sayer came to be after the DJ found a copy of Sayer’s modest 1977 hit of that name in a bargain bin. His remix became a hot club item and after clearances were obtained, Sayer began promoting the track some weeks ago. It now gives him a second U.K. No. 1 to go alongside "When I Need You," from early 1977.

This reminds me what my dad used to tell me: You can never count out Leo Sayer.
