linin' em on up like fast cats

Some of the new Kidz Bop tracks have found their way to the internet. "Feel Good Inc" is GOLDEN, but the other two are wiggity whack.

So it turns out that Nellie McKay's new album Pretty Little Head will NOT be released yet...fortunately, some of the tracks have leaked.

If anyone else was obsessed with the track I posted by Oh No! Oh My! "Walk in the Park" (see below in my favorite mp3s of the year) take a listen to more songs by them...

New Pharrell! The album is delayed until February but here's something to wait for!...or not wait for. Because this is probably the weakest track yet.

PHARRELL WILLIAMS f/ DADDY YANKEE- Mamacita

I was watching MTV Hits the other day and Nickelback's "Photograph" came on. Before instantly changing the channel, I decided to see what the video is like. It's hilarious. It's basically a straightforward interpretation of the (terrible) lyrics. "So this is my house...and this is a store I used to shop in...and this is a memory..." Nickelback sucks. If you don't believe it, listen to this mash-up I just found from long ago.

Thank you for using "whiggidy-whack," a phrase I can only hope Nick will bring back in full force. Thank you, Project Runway.
