Get your TV on the Radio

I am a little behind the curve on this one, but better late then never. TV on the Radio put out an album called "Return to Cookie Mountain" last year. I finally got around to listening to it, and it is creative, ambitious, and unique. Here is a music video for "Wolf Like Me", one of my favorite tracks. I simply don't believe a mediocre song could inspire a music video as badass as this. Definitely also check out "Let the Devil In", "Blues from Down Here", and, well, just get the whole album.

Sarah Silverman MTV Movie Awards Skit

I went to a show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater a few days before the MTV movie awards, and Sarah Silverman made a surprise appearance to try out her opening monologue jokes. They were pretty funny, especially one about the paparazzi introducing us to so many celebrity vaginas in the past year. Then she points them out around the crowd, at the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, before almost forgetting to include Tobey Maguire. I couldn't believe she would do that joke on MTV, so I tuned in. Sure enough she did, as well as her more famous one about Paris Hilton chipping her teeth on the prison bars that were painted to look like penises. All this can be found on Youtube.

Here is her skit; that old fashioned gag of a host interacting with movies from the past year that Billy Crystal does every time on the Academy Awards. Sarah does it pretty well, but Jack Nicholson shines.
