She doesn’t give an “F” (unless we’re referring to her acting ability)


I think what we’ve got below is a way more accurate title.

You know a movie is gonna be bad when the commercials don’t even highlight the supposed lead star in the movie. From what I’ve seen, this looks more like a Jason Segel vehicle. Oh yea, and Cameron Diaz will wash your car for you.

With Segel and Timberlake  sharing the screen, how disappointing that this movie isn’t “I Love You, Man: 2”; because I bet the two of them are funny as hell together.

It’s like that, is it?



It’s tricky!

Yes, Please: Bon Iver covers Donny Hathaway *and* Bonnie Raitt

(this is a very lo-fi video from Youtube):

If you dig what you hear, head to the Late Night site and check out the pristine version of this performance:

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon – Bon Iver: I Can’t Make You Love Me (5/23/11) – Video –

God. Damn.

(that is all)

I L.O.V.E. this song

Have been hearing this song incessantly, since Hellman’s must have bought advertising slots during every show that I watch on TV. Initially I thought it was by the duo She & Him, since I mistakenly assumed that it was Zooey Deschanel’s voice I was hearing. Turns out it’s a tune by the British indie/pop neo-soul singer V.V. Brown ( think post-Winehouse/ pre-Adele attempt at commercial success; she’s probably best known for her song “Shark in the Water” which wound up on the VH1 top 20 video countdown for a couple of weeks last year).

In any event, “L.O.V.E.” is catchy as hell, and it’s one of the few times that I’m calling attention to a commercial that doesn’t suck.

Just another racial brick in the wall

This thing looks [unintentionally] like this other thing!

Save the drama for my mama

Maureen’s thoughts on

Lady Gaga

As of Sunday evening, May 22, 2011, 7pm est (when asked if she watched Gaga on Saturday Night Live the previous night):

“Ugh, no. She’s disgusting. I told your brother I wouldn’t watch her performances”

As of Monday morning, May 24, 2011, 9:30am est (after learning that my mom had seen Gaga on The View on Monday):

“I watched Lady CaCa on The View yesterday. She really seems to be a very nice young lady :)”.

please note the incongruity of that second statement!
