Of Montreal covers “Day Man” from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Of Montreal is currently one of my favorite bands.  In this short clip they cover Electric Dream Machine’s glorious “Day Man” from the IASiP episode “Sweet Dee dates a Retarded Person.”

this is Soulja Boy’s new video, for his song “Turn My Swag On”.  I am posting it up here without even watching it, because I know it’s going to be god-awful.  Here are my reasons:

1. Soulja Boy < Moist Bread

2. Working with Pop and Hip Hop Rappers/Writers/Producers every day, the amount of times I hear the word “Swag” in any given week is rivaled only by the amount of times I hear the word “Nigga.”  So many times that both have lost all meaning.

3. I hate you

Tears for Fears video REDUX

You might know it as the song you hear in Donnie Darko, but back in the 80’s there was this big band called Tears for Fears that was pretty cool, kinda cheesy but everything was then anyway. (By the way, NEVER EVER WATCH Richard Kelly’s other movie SOUTHLAND TALES, its the worst piece ever.)  Here’s the original video, then watch the redux;

Were you aware that my man Lil Wayne has been given the opportunity to contribute a blog to  Pretty Sweet.  His first entry is out this week, and although it isn’t a particularly interesting read, he does mention that his Fantasy Football team is called the South Beach Sloths (your old pal UB’s favorite animal).

Jesus Christ this is awful

This video was emailed to me a few times last week but I just now got around to watching it.  I will never doubt any of you again:

Shocking? No. Completely Expected? Yes.

File this story with those like; “Water reported to be wet,” “grass comes in many shades of green,” and “Turtledog: Devastatingly Handsome.”  Clay Aiken of American Idol fame has shocked the masses and come out of the closet. Yes, the same Clay Aiken who looks like the illicit love child of David Spade, Gollum and a Cabbage Patch Kid, is gay.  I know this must be shocking but I kind of suspected this.  I must have some pretty keen detection skills to figure out Clay Aiken is gay.  Or I’m not blind, deaf, and completely retarded.

I love when blatantly gay people come out of the closet and act like it is this huge story they are breaking to the world.  I respect that they want to openly acknowledge who they really are but forgive me for taking the news nonchalantly.  I appreciate it way more when guys like Doogie Howser or the singer from Judas Priest end up being gay, that catches you more off guard.  For every Lance Bass or Clay Aiken that “comes out of the closet,” I think it should be required that someone like the Rock or Bret Michaels admits they are gay.  That would be way more entertaining.  Can I hire someone to make this happen?

“I don’t like these at all!”

This is fucking ill.

easily the greatest concert visuals I have ever seen.  The video is at the bottom of the page.  In particular, check out the wall of static that Trent periodically emerges from around the 10:25 mark.  Wow.
