Hey, kids. How you Laura Dern? You finally managed to shake off that persistent, lingering Sunday brunch hangover? Ready to talk about music perhaps? Maybe?
Lana Del Rey’s album, “Born to Die,” was officially released today. Any of y’all already listened to it ten times through on repeat? Excepting a stan-tastic rave review on Gloganvlog?
Not so much of that here, I’m afraid. Don’t get me wrong: I think the album’s great. I think it lived up to my expectations and then some. That said, basically everyone on the entire internet has already chimed in on what they think about it, often at agonizing length, and I just can’t be bothered to contribute to that. Suffice to say, if, like me, you are at all into super stylish, well-produced moody electropop, get your filthy gay hands on a copy of that album, ASAP.
Instead of talking about Lana, I figured I’d link some music videos that I think don’t suck too hard. Maybe you can watch them while you’re waiting for
the pain of your bleak existence the workday to end and let me know what you think in the comments.
Phantogram – When I’m Small
I love that one of my very favorite songs of 2010 got what is basically a perfect video treatment: a mini movie that’s just as sexy, cool and impeccably produced as the song itself.
So, homos: the 2011 Academy Award nominees were announced today.
The Academy failed to nominate Michael Fassbender’s penis for its courageous work in “Shame.” Charlize Theron, despite perfectly capturing the very essence of every staff writer here at Gloganvlog with her brilliant performance in “Young Adult,” failed to score a nod of her own.
Perhaps most disappointingly of all, Ryan Gosling wasn’t nominated for “Ides of March,” “Drive” or any of the other eleven movies he appeared in this year, so he won’t show up on the red carpet looking so damn good in a tuxedo as to set the nation’s collective panties to dropping all at once.
“Transformers 2: Dark Side of the Moon,” however, is now an Academy Award nominated film, kids.
2011: worst year for film ever?
The complete list of nominees, after the jump.
