Gee, Is This Some Kind of Joke?

16 Mar

Because it’s not a very funny one.  How in the world could this mindless video and lyrical blunder slip through the cracks and pass for musical talent with nearly 10,000,000 views on YouTube?  Rebecca Black – Who are you?  As if Justin Bieber wasn’t punishment enough.

This Mashable article says it all.  She’s trending on Twitter, had a feature on Tosh.0, and it is bizarrely terrifying.  Oh. The horror.

Gee, Hump Day Goes Pop

29 Sep

That’s right.  Pop sound takes over this week with the sweet and irresistible music of Eric Hutchinson.  I’m attending his concert at Furman tonight, so I couldn’t help but share the love.  This boy can play the piano like nobody’s business, and he’s got a soulful little swagger to his songs that I can’t help but adore.

His top songs from his 2008 album Sounds Like This are “Rock & Roll” and “OK It’s Alright With Me.”  The “OK…” video is simple and could read like a quirky karaoke video, but his smiley expressions make it utterly endearing.

I also dig the tracks “Food Chain” and “Oh!” but those videos aren’t on YouTube…sad day!

This boy is far too happy-go-lucky to resist.  Every song is a smile.  I swear.  I don’t know too much about him, but I’m excited to check him out.  Concert review soon to come…

Gee, Levi’s Curve ID Gets The Fit

18 Sep

As I blissfully flipped through the October issue of Elle today, I was captivated by the edgy new Levi’s Curve ID advertisement.  I’ll admit, it was the bold headline that drew me in first: “All Asses Were Not Created Equal.”  I couldn’t help but nod in agreement.  My butt just doesn’t look good in the pair that my best friend wears religiously.  Finding a decent pair of jeans has become a daunting task in the beautiful process of shopping for clothes.

Intrigued by the concept, I investigated the Levi’s campaign a little bit more.  I found this insightful Youtube video about the artistic intellect involved in this quest to create a pair for every booty…and I think it’s brilliant.  It’s a smart move for Levi’s to take customers behind the scenes and show them just how much thought and care goes into making jeans that fit YOU.

Levi’s even hosted promotional events in New York and San Francisco in which girls could bring old jeans that didn’t fit to go to Goodwill, and get a new pair of Curve ID jeans in return.  Did I mention that She & Him performed at the San Francisco shindig on September 17th?  Yeah.  Zooey Deschanel + jeans that fit = heaven.
