Olivia Wilde on Ellen

Wow. She's actually quite funny. I'm coveting the suit, too.

Tom's L.A. Mini Doc, Part 1

Aha! Finally, an embeddable version has cropped up on Youtube. Yep, I get a little bit funneh when I'm jet-lagged too, but now I can take comfort in the fact that I don't imagine my blood disappearing down shower drains.

And the Irish/Scottish manager dude at the end is very, very bald- which is why Tom cuts in with the "Can I have some hair?" comment. Heee...

Coming soon: his What Do You Think Of? with Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls. You know, her. Hilariously, she's about as intellectual as she appears- yep- but Tom manages to be funny while completely respectful. And speaking in German. You'll see. Once I find it on Youtube, anyway.

Unreleased song!

Ha! I found a very old, unreleased Keane song. I mean, this is ANCIENT. But still quite sweet and very, very Beatles-y:

Michael on Idolatry!!!

Ah, finally. Yep, Michael Slezak has completely joined the Cult of Bruce. This is just a fun trailer-like thing for Michael upcoming Idolatry performance, which they preview. And as you might have guessed, the first lady is the you're-sooooooo-smaaaaaart lady. Yes, THE lady. You can kind of tell.

Well, I couldn't find the super-exciting thing I was looking for, but I found two less interesting videos to make up for it. Grrr.

Well, first we have Keane playing a tribute to Genesis at a VH1 concert. The low notes at the beginning were shaky and the song stinks, but it's...interesting. I got a very McCartney-ish vibe from Tom during the "nananana"s at the end. This was at the beginning of 2008, right when Keane had their quasi-reinvention...I think it was the debut of The Haircut and The Leather Jackets.

Also, I can't quite place that guy doing the introduction...hm. Seems a touch familiar, though.

And just for giggles: THIS is how I'm planning to make my performance at Sunday's recital stand out. Really, really stand out. BANG ON, MAN.

Funny Pictures

Just a few funny pictures today. Remember this epic Bono photo?

My god. Terrifying. And this picture just made me laugh for a really, really long time...the dude's face...

Wow. This isn't even engrish. Nope, this is just a FAIL.

And this too!

This, on the other hand, is real, authentic engrish. All together now: "Just jiggle it a little." The best part is that the French says something like, "If you need to turn to the right until resistance", which is pretty engrish-y too.

Hee. Troublesome!

Bedshaped Music Video

Unfortunately Universal has disabled embedding for their videos, but ohmygoodnessgracious this is a fantastic music video:
Great song, too, from way back when (Hopes and Fears).

Engrish Time!

Yep, too lazy for captions today.

Early Winter; or, Gwen Stefani not-complete-FAIL

My god. Is it possible? Is it an actually...DECENT...Gwen Stefani song?

Well, of course, it's not a Gwen Stefani song. It's a Tim Rice-Oxley song, which means that all of the non-FAIL elements of this can probably be attributed to him alone. But still!

Of course, there's always room for improvement. Like, say, removing Gwen Stefani from the equation. (click here and watch in HQ- really worth it)

Ah, much better.
