Music + video:
1983 MTV, in two parts, recorded to videotape and uploaded to Google Video with commercials intact. Prince, The Tubes, Night Rider, Huey Lewis and the News, The Police...
"You Tube" is a love song.
OK Go's new video, with the band decked out in paisley to match the studio backdrop, is their effort at matching "Here it Goes Again." Not quite.
Blake Lewis might be the next American Idol. He would be a nice change from the red state Idols who have been dominant until now. He's from Seattle and has an indie sensibility (compared with the other Idols, anyway). Lots of tattoos, seems comfortable on camera, and cleans up real nice. He's the one who wowed in the auditions with his beat-box. We learned last night that he can really sing, too.
