Haven’t been big into The Flaming Lips since freshman year, but this is pretty damn infectious. Makes me want to dig up (or more likely download) some of their older albums. It also makes me want to buy a Madonna album. What?


Pretty impressive Neil Young impersonation by Mr. Fallon. I generally don’t stay up late enough to catch his show, a feat further complicated by the fact that I don’t have a TV, but that notwithstanding, this clip would certainly make me at least think about switching the channel over. Possibly. Maybe.

“Used To Be”

November 24, 2009

How come no one told me about this Beach House track, or their upcoming new album? Here’s another new track that’s not as good, but maybe it just needs a fun little video like this.

I can’t decide if I like this a lot or love it, but I’ve watched it three times so far in the past two days. Check out the slightly less awesome (but still awesome, especially the first clip) Episode 1 as well. Hope they keep making more.

My Boys

This would have gone from an 8.5 to a 9 had they not changed the lyrics. Maybe it’s cause I listened to the Magnetic Fields too much in college, but I’m a sucker for a cover where the gender of the singer changes, but the lyrics remain the same.

The Lava Planet

September 16, 2009

Interesting story about a newly discovered planet outside the solar system that could possibly, maybe be suitable for life — if it wasn’t totally engulfed in lava. That said, I for one would like to welcome our new lava overlords.

Not sure why, but I’ve been revisiting Deep Cuts today (much to my sister’s shagrin) and I stumbled upon this video. I’m a sucker for these retro video mash-ups.

Also somewhat related: these guys are stylin’ but completely insane.
