A Bad Lip Reading of Beyoncé’s National Anthem.
Happy holiday Friday!Read More
It’s not really a holiday movie, but I usually like watching Beautiful Girls around this time of year (you can check it out streaming on Netflix). Maybe I like it so much because it’s about a guy coming home, then he drinks a lot, sees a couple a-holes he liked, and a couple a-holes he didn’t like.
It’s really the stuff that any Gen-Y kid coming home for the holidays can relate to, and I’m looking forward to doing it in a week’s time.
The seven tracks on True form a great breakup album, but the closing track, “Bad Girls (Verdine Version),” is my favorite by far. It just has this brooding, synthesizer-clad heartache with an amazing 80′s sensibility. Props to this girl for 1) trying to make it in the shadow of her big sister and 2) actually finding her own sound and doing it really, really well.
I really like Beyoncé, but I think I like this Solange track more than anything out of Beyoncé’s collection. (As a playlist recommendation, place it in a playlist with Desire and College from the Drive soundtrack.)
I just can’t get over it and am completely, completely obsessed. LISTEN!
More free stuff for this Weekend of Love!
Apple released iTunes 11 — the design is much improved and is a lot, lot faster apparently. Download it now, seems like they’ve done a pretty good job with the redesign.
I’m back in Brooklyn this weekend to be a brides man (not a typo) in my friend’s wedding, so I’m declaring this THE WEEKEND OF LOOOOOOOOOVE and have chosen a Friday Song accordingly.
There aren’t many times in life when the initials of your friends getting married is BJ + JHJ (no joke!), so this Friday love theme goes out to them.
Most of us recognize this song from the stellar Drive soundtrack. I’m not super into the video, but the song has a great porn-groove vibe to it that I love.
Happy Friday, y’all! Love is in the air!!!
Update: It’s an abridged version of the song. Get the full version here complete with hipster-girl-mid-song conversation.
I’ve loved Hot Chip since my intern days in London and I think it’s been document here before. They’re one of those few groups where I’ll buy their albums regardless because they’re always trying new things.
This is the video from their latest album, In Our Heads. It features a pretty great combination of stuff: video game + footballers + footballers making out. I think that’s a winning combo all around and makes it worthy of a viewing in my book. Enjoy.
