I have an overactive imagination, a knack for awkwardness and I really think Kristen Wiig might be using me as the inspiration for some of her movie characters. Ps - I love music so much I would marry it.

How To Steal A Show When You’re Armed With Nothing But Dance Moves.

Let me introduce you to your Monday moment of zen.

LCD Soundsystem performed a new song on Saturday Night Live but the song was no match for the guy dancing in the background. Uproxx says he’s the keyboardist but isn’t Nancy the keyboard player? and when you look closely I’m not sure if he’s even playing anything? That switchboard isn’t an instrument is it? Bigger question, was he hammin’ it up or are those his genuine moves?

Lastly, is LCD’s Dance Man worthy of This Hall of Showstoppers?

Wil Ferrell on Cowbell (obvi)

The Korean Drummer <3

“The Mad Drummer”

and the “Shadow Artist” who performed for the Portland, ME City Council…

LCD Dance Man is all of us, us vs. mondays, us vs. life….us vs them. (see what I did there)

In honor of Red Nose Day UK, Ed Sheeran helped to spotlight the plight of homeless kids in Liberia.

Understandably Ed couldn’t leave without doing something.

While We Work Through Our Cycle Of Superbowl Grief, Let’s Celebrate Lady Gaga And Our Favorite Pop Commercial Cameos.

“This Land Is Your Land”, a leap into a Superbowl stadium, choreographed fans and even a shout out to mom and dad.

Overall, the commercials were good right? I didn’t see any talking babies/animals which is a definite improvement and there were pop stars a plenty!

Timberlake and Walken.

Snoop and Martha

DJ Khaled

Bieber

I got a tweet that said “Gaga sucks”. I still don’t know why “sucks” is used as a negative adjective considering it’s popularity as a verb.

Respectful, layered and fun. It’s the Superbowl folks and some of us don’t have the energy to read about another media firestorm.
