VH1 -- YOU'RE GONNA PAY!

As i was getting ready for work this morning I found my head transfixed on the TV while watching VH1's morning video programming. Here's what my brain would've said if it could talk:
Maroon 5: Why do i like this guy's voice? He's hot. Whoa, he's making out with an older lady. I see why all my girlfriends are obsessed with this dude. Why do i like his voice?
Avril Lavigne: Whoa, she's hot. I'd do her.
Keane: Pretty. Pretty. Pretty. Music nice. This is like gay brother music. My favorite song by Coldplay is "Politik" ... this is piano driven like it. I like Muse.

KarenRTAG: i think there is crack in these photos

Ultragrrrl: THAT MIGHT be my favorite.
KarenRTAG: i really dont have one
KarenRTAG: i just cant choose
Ultragrrrl: wanna hear something evil?
KarenRTAG: sure!
Ultragrrrl: i really like that keane single
KarenRTAG: HAHAHAHA!
KarenRTAG: keane are alarmingly sneaky about being good
KarenRTAG: the whole album is good but you just cant admit it
Ultragrrrl: WTF?
KarenRTAG: but you cant like them
Ultragrrrl: i just can't help it.
Ultragrrrl: i want to hear that single all day long.
KarenRTAG: which song do you mean
Ultragrrrl: it sounds like "so why dont we go..."
KarenRTAG: somewhere only we know
KarenRTAG: a simple thing!
Ultragrrrl: yeah. that one. i'm gonna buy it on itunes.
KarenRTAG: where have you gone
KarenRTAG: i have the album
Ultragrrrl: i have it somewhere. i cant find it.
Ultragrrrl: the poor people in my office. i will play this forty times starting... NOW.
KarenRTAG: this is the last time is really good too
KarenRTAG: im going to listen to keane now
KarenRTAG: ive been listening to emo all morning
Ultragrrrl: this is going up on my blog.

Hi Sarah,
I saw the same Maroon 5 video on VH1 this morning and was thinking the same thing! I can't put my finger on why I like the singer's voice and there is something definately attractive about him. I'm pretty sure that was Kelly Preston(John Travolta's wife)in the video. I thought to myself "she is a pretty famous actress what is she doing in a Maroon 5 video!?" Anyway, the Keane CD is great! "Bedshaped" is probably my favorite, but pretty much every song is good!

Yeah Jaclyn!

After being inspired and listening to Keane, as I said I would... I decided "Bedshaped" is definitely better than "This is the Last Time." Damn thats a good album. We are all such saps.

And actually... I think the chick the hot guy from Maroon 5 is banging in the video is his girlfriend.

It's Kelly Preston in "She Will Be Loved" and then it's his real life girlfriend in "This Love". Also, Kanye West has remixed "This Love" and it's apparently on the mix-tape circuit. I've not heard it.

Keane are fucking great. I saw them open for Travis a few months ago. Very strange band arrangement, but it works. They're the real deal. "This is the Last Time" is my fav song of there's "Somewhere..." is also good and the video is awesome. And yes, it's totally gay brother music.

Maroon 5 singer sounds like either Jamiroquai or Justin Timberlake depending on the song. I don't mind them. They're pleasant.

You know what's good? Track #5 on this new Hives.

Why does it say "4 comments" and when you click on it nothing is there?

I have been pimping the Keane-factor like i owe their shares on the London Stock Exchange. I was lucky enough to catch them live at the mod club (Toronto) a month ago. I never really watched American Idol, but I couldn’t help but think the lead Keaner, simply won the title of Universal Idol of ALL TIME. Top voice, but waves his arms in awkward movements a performer does on a practically empty stage and no instruments to preoccupied him with.

Damn you all. Now I have to listen to some keane, or snow patrol, or virgin radio.

Sarah, have you listened to any XiuXiu? What do you think? I think some of the vocalizations are bizarre, but interesting. Kind of mope-pop for people who want to kill themselves, but are too lazy - but with a beat! I'm interested in an "insider's" opinion.

thanks for making the bizarre phenomenon of liking maroon 5's singer's voice public. i thought i was the only one! i don't know why, but lately everytime i'm about to play an mp3 cd on my player, i put the M5 one on...it's like this irresistible pull i can't resist nor comprehend. could it be...the devil???

Pitchfork's been hyping the Xiu Xiu for years now. I have some of their albums downloaded, but I haven't really spent enough time with them to form an opinion. Just a few cursory listens. Guy's voice takes some getting used to, mos def.

Great band name, though, since "Xiu Xiu: The Sent-Down Girl" is like the best movie ever. Who's seen it? Help me represent, y'all. Movie's great.

In my honest opinion, VH1 has been sucking shit for years now.

Sarah, didn't know you were into lesbian action! You've gotten me even further arous...err...excited. You might want to change your mind about Avril though...

She's a site for sore eyes without all that makeup.

Unrelated Note:

On the 24th of this month I'm turning 25. I might actually leave the apartment that day. Don't know if i'll venture out beyond my usual two-block radius. People here in the Upper West are starting to scare me.

Send some birthday love my way Sarah, et. al...

One love,

quick side note: i met the guys from Maroon 5 last night (in Dallas)... cool, very down-to-earth guys. i saw them in the lobby of their hotel, talked for a few minutes (they were worried about getting tickets to the Killers show, as though it would have been wrong or really offensive for them to walk up to the door and say "hi, we're maroon 5, any chance there's room for us?"), and then when i saw them at the show, which was fantastic and so much fun by the way, they came up and said hi at the bar, and bought my g/f and me a drink!

long time, first time, love your blog...

Sarah is ridiculously hot. And she is also Jewish. And did I mention she is hot! And also an amazingly sweet person. I could take her home to meet my parents and then we could go to my place and eat a Kosher dinner over the candlelight. She has that nice girl image, but can be very naughty...in a good way! And she has those mysterious yet beautiful green eyes. Not to mention that shapely bootylicious body. Who could possibly resist her charms?

Hopeless romantic from the Upper West.

I saw keane at the mod club as well; it's charming, inoffensive stuff, coldplay lite if you will...a surprising number of giggling teenage girls in attendance though.

"Somewhere Only We Know" is a solid track, but the one problem with the album is that all the songs sound the same once you get to track 5. I like Muse too. And Elbow.

*NOT the killers and muse

My theory of why sarah has any friends at all boils down to her cans. So when people say that she is the really nice and the best person ever.

All the boys and girls will say "Dude, have you seen her tits? SOLID!"

Sarah said...

You fucking ignorant douchebags! They're called GAZONGAS.

fun bags.
dirty pillows.
wondrous tatas.

You're blowing it kid. That was a pretty shitty comment and was completely uncalled for. Totally lame bro.

Sarah, I got your message. Thank you for the birthday love. You truly are the nicest person ever.

Peace out.
