Wow. This is a child’s bedroom?! I’m staring at it like a work of art.

I thought all kid rooms automatically came with drawings, stickers, food, fingerprints on the wall??

No stains on the bedspread?? No lollipop sticks stuck to the curtains?

Maybe they just airbrushed it all out?? Either that or they just shoved everything in the closet ala Monica on Friends.

Soooo, if the asking price is $5.7 million dollars, I guess all we need to do now is find 50 roommates and the place is OURS!

What The Heck Is Happening in This Video? Madonna Edition.

Today we are going to analyze the video for the highly anticipated video, Bitch, I’m Madonna.

What is it about? Clearly it’s like one of those speakeasy parties… “Bitch, I’m Madonna” is the password to get in.  Madonna gets lost looking for Beyonce, Katy Perry and Kanye but she finds something even better, SOCK PUPPETS!!! Then she ends up dancing in a closet alone like she always does and then she goes to sleep.

Ps – If you’re having a speakeasy party anytime soon please make “Sock Puppets” the password.

Say it with me ssssssock puppppppets.

Dude, Glastonbury! What Are You Doing?!

As far as I know, the trouble with Glastonbury 2015 all started when they put Kanye West on the lineup and people were pissed…so pissed they signed a petition and at last count that petition was 130,000 pissed-people strong.

kanye petition

Kanye-haters even called in death threats to festival organizers…Yep over music.

Btw do you practice in the mirror before you call in a death threat? Probably right? Loses the effect if you stutter, hang up and have to call back. 

Enter Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters Frontman, residing Mayor of Rock and Roll and fellow Glastonbury headliner…

foo fighter super

Dave sticks up for Kanye, says it’s gonna be “punk rock” for him to step out on the stage because “100,000 could bottle him”  and he has faith Kanye will pull it off, momentarily quelling the crowd.


Wrong…Dave breaks his leg on stage and has to cancel Glastonbury gig per doctor’s orders.

oh damn

Sh*t just got real.

So who did they pick as a replacement for a high energy good time beloved rock band?

A lady who sings lullabies.  Pretty lullabies but lullabies none the less.

Will Kanye rage intensify? or will Florence and her soothing sounds machine calm the crowd??

glastonbury is coming

Good luck Glastonbury, I will pray for you. 


Ps – Dave Grohl wanted me to give you this letter. Click here to read.

What The Heck Is Happening In This Video?

Today we are going to analyze the video for my current music crush, Crystals by Of Monsters And Men

What is it about? Well clearly she’s some kind of magic lady who recycles Christmas decorations into hot chicks. Right?? Has to be.

Ps – Don’t you love how you can always count on Iceland to get a little weird?? I think Bjork would be proud.

The new album is called “Beneath The Skin”. Check it out.

I’ll Endorse Your Shampoo On One Condition-er.


Image: Pantene

Selena Gomez is the new “Face of Pantene” which really makes no sense because shouldn’t she be the new “Hair of Pantene”?

Then again why ask questions when they’re paying you 3 million dollars to pimp hair care?

I’ll tell you why “fine print.”

What happens when she goes to a salon? They usually don’t carry Pantene…Does she have to bring her own?  What if one of her so-called friends switches out her shampoo? You can’t trust Hollywood people!  These are all questions Selena better ask up front because if they’re paying her that much you know there’s some serious fine print.

Ie: Pantene reserves the right to shave Endorser’s head and steal Endorser’s wigs in the event Endorser is caught using any other hair product brand.

Ps – I use NouNou. Tell them I will gladly do an endorsement but only if my commercial can be like Billy Madison in the bathtub.

It’s here, and it’s HOT.

11067645_828726487218113_9173937992353866201_nJust in time for today’s start of CMA Music Festival (which will forever be known to me as Fan Fair), the temperatures are sweltering hot as usual.

If you’re not here in Nashville for the Fest, there’s good and bad. I mean, the good is, you’re probably sitting all up in your office or house enjoying some air conditioning and only breaking a sweat if you have to get up for more beer, amiright?

The bad? EVERY. BODY. In country music is here right now. There are free concerts literally all over downtown Nashville. New artists you might not have heard of yet, already up-and-coming artists and even artists you know pretty well are playing on stages at just about every corner. Tonight, the BIG concerts start at LP Field, where the Tennessee Titans play. These shows are a parade of country music superstars, four nights in a row. If there was any such thing as concert overload (and there’s not, in my book), this is where you’d get it.

If you want to torture yourself you can see the full lineup here. I’d also suggest you use that link to get your tickets for NEXT YEAR’s CMA Music Festival as soon as humanly possible, because those things sell out super fast and I don’t want you to miss it again. Cool? Cool.

Data Source:

Slacker analyzed hundreds of millions of data points to uncover how our users are engaging with rock music across our entire service. We then parsed this data based on location to identify the states within the US that most actively engaged with rock music. In the case of the top 5 most and least engaged states— we drilled further down to identify the specific artists who drove engagement based on streams, custom-station creation, “hearts”, “bans”, skips etc.

Prince Harry’s Gaga Faux Pas.

Dear Prince Harry,

Although Time Magazine thought Lady Gaga was under-dressed when you met her backstage, I think it was you that was ill-clad. If you’re going to meet Gaga, be all about it! Throw on a boa or maybe Sparkle Panties??  That being said, she also missed an opportunity by not drawing double-eyebrows on you.

Chalk this up to a learning experience and next time, call me! You’re probably just sheltered being royal and all.
