First of all, the Beth interview is coming, people, she's coming! Its all my fault, so don't even try to blame her, but its going to be so good. What's your spirit animal?
Anyhow, in order to placate my fellow Beth-lovers, I'm giving you two awesome videos. The first one is a song I heard on the radio and was convinced it was Leslie Feist, so I listened to all the potential suspects on amazon yet was unable to find out what song it was. That's because Feist released this song under her alter-ego Regina Spektor! Wait, that's not fair, Regina Spektor is her own person, as you can see from this video. Her vocal control is really remarkable, and I like the sound. She got her start on the LES as part of the "anti-folk" scene. Whatever the fuck that means! Sounds pretentious...
Second matter of business: I'm learning this dance and I'm looking for about 48 other nubile danseurs and danseuses to join me in recreating this ipod Nano commercial/music video. Its so awesome; I love group dances like this. My favorite part are the clap-turns. Don't be surprised if you see me practicing that move. So obviously I'm going to be the guy in the yellow that picks her up, so who's going to be Feist? Tracy? What's that I heard you say?
By the way, I am completely of the opinion that letting your song be on an ipod commercial is not selling out. Anymore. As came up in conversation with my (awesome) roommate, judging musicians to have 'sold out' is an argument that has been over for at least seven years. Its very last century, guys. Of course they just want their money while they can still get it, and c'mon, who wants a day job?
