Why We Love 'Em

This is why everybody loves Jason Mraz.

LA minidoc part 3

The third part of Tom's L.A. minidocs, made way back in December. I always think he sounds eerily McCartney-esque on some songs, so it's actually quite unnerving how similar he can sound on purpose:

Ok, so it isn't exact, but take Adam's performance a week and a half ago on Idol- I couldn't find a Youtube vid because Fremantle is being stupid, but you remember the eerie blue lighting, slightly evil sound, etc.?

THIS is what I thought of IMMEDIATELY, albeit without the freeze ray or evil death whinny:

Great Michael Interview

FINALLY, some promotion! Looooove the dancing.

Tom really likes this busking thing, doesn't he? This time, it's in Buenos Aires. I love the confused people in the square.

Some Funny Keane Pics

By the way, none of these are photo-shopped.

Alright. I've grown to appreciate Jesse Quin, the unofficial 4th member, ever since that dying-cow noise he made in Tom's documentary. But you HAVE to admit there's something a little strange going on here.

I mean, I don't want to say he feels about Tom the way Tom feels about Bono, but...

Tim replies with a Dick Solomon face.

And I don't mean to be silly or anything, but...AHAHAHAHAHAHA LOOK AT TOM'S FACE!!!!! AHAHAHAHAHA.
He looks like he just watched Michael's elimination from Idol. Yeah, I went there.

I don't know what I love more about that picture: the crazy facial expression OR the fact that the web address contained the word "FLAB". I'm not kidding. I think somebody should be offended, but I'm not quite sure who.

I was trawling through Youtube in a mostly futile attempt to find clips from Mickey Blue Eyes for Layne when I came across this:

Yep, still as funny as it was then.

A Progression

Sorry, for those who don't appreciate Keane...wait. No. I'm NOT sorry. Anyway, here's a little progression I put together. I just think it's fascinating how they, particularly Tom, have gone from this in 2003, (shy, awkward, round-faced, floppy-haired, and rather off-key):

to full-fledged rock stars covering a Queen/Bowie song in 2007. Yes, they actually messed up a couple of times here, but it's a near-impossible song from every aspect, and Tom had real stage presence here, goddammit.

And, just because, a very sweet acoustic performance of 'Try Again' from 2007, complete with string quartet:

The Secret of the Shiny Hair

So this is what happens when a teleprompter malfunctions at the taping of Demetri Martin's show. Most comedians would wait backstage until the teleprompter gets fixed. But Demetri decides to entertain the audience by getting out his guitar and singing an impromptu song. (A capo, by the way, is a thin wooden thing you strap onto the neck of a guitar to block off strings, thus creating a higher chord.) He really is a strange, strange bird:
