Quote of the Day
Outside of architecture school graduates, art school grads, and Art Basel fans over 65 years old, very few people are ideological Modernists.

Bach Around The Clock

It's astounding to hear SO MUCH Bach.

I got nothing to do
You got nothing to say
Everything is so fucked up
I guess we like it that way
Everything Falls Apart by Hüsker Dü
The punk rocker calls the song “despair meets resignation” and says it's a way to "build a new way of life through music.”
The songwriter also says, "I am an island." Really. That's the ego speaking. It likes to be alone and unhappy.

"If you could do that, you would. That’s what you would do."
THE BOSS, JERRY AND JON STEWART WALKED INTO A BENEFIT ... Springsteen went on stage and got down and dirty. "Nearby, Jon Stewart, the evening’s host, was pounding the air drums alongside a wary Jerry Seinfeld, who stood with his arms crossed. When Springsteen hopped onto the Steinway to play a few licks, the crowd went crazy, and Stewart leaned toward Seinfeld and said, 'If you could do that, you would. That’s what you would do.' After a moment, Seinfeld nodded." (from the New Yorker)
More Valerie videos below and after the jump.
Apologies - as quickly as people put up videos of the senior choir Young At Heart at YouTube singing this Coldplay song, Fox Searchlight has embedding or the sound disabled. This video had sound yesterday, but no longer does. Rupert Murdoch should read Kevin Kelly's New Rules for the New Economy.
Original Valerie Post:
It's easy being cool if they think you can sing like Amy Winehouse (unless you are Amy Winehouse)
In Mark Ronson's video of his own performance of Valerie, he has women "from the audience" singing when Amy Winehouse "goes missing." (Ronson gets 10 points for his arrangement of a bad song, and -5 points for acting like Rupert Murdoch and making us watch an ad before letting us see the video.)
Next, Amy Winehouse herself shows life isn't necessarily that simple.
