Broke n’ Human Beings

August 18, 2011

I don’t delight in the dignity limbo contest that makes up most reality shows. Don’t watch Hoarders or Intervention or America’s Best Dance Crew to be buoyed by other people bottoming out. But, though I can’t offer you a working link for a full watch(.. not principals, just can’t find it. Comment thread anyone?), you [...]

Now That We Got That Covered

August 17, 2011

The Green Album is a new covers record of Muppet songs wherein assorted indie rock outfits exhume the bones of Jim Henson to suck out what little moist marrow still exists.

Old People; ‘Like Regular People But Way Older’

August 2, 2011

Much rather dig out an less trafficked gem but, whether you wanna live to be 100 or you just loved the movie Cocoon and find joy watching old people act all vigorous, young and vital. Watching old people ride motorcycles or waterski or wear their cap slightly askew, it’s easily as adorable as that tired babies [...]
