I'm getting into French-born Chilean rapper, Ana Tijoux.  Reminds me of an older Nelly Furtado sound with the hipness of MIA.  Here she is preforming live for NPR's Tiny Desk Concert.

Music video for "1977"

Did you watch the Emmys?  Here's the funny parts with a lot of Temple Grandin in between.  My favorite moment was when they asked Tina Fey and a co-writer on 30 Rock if Funny was Sexy.

Yes, please.  I'm a nerd.

Hadn't found a good cover of Eminem and Rihanna's "Like The Way You Lie" until now.  This one is by HelenaMaria who are identical twins named Helena and Maria.  You like?

The new Stars album hasn't drawn me in yet, so here's a beautiful performance of their oldie "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" that they did recently for WFUV.  I'm nostalgic.

Also great Horse Feathers' performance of "Thistled Spring."  One of the year's most beautiful songs.

I was glued to the tube for this "Step Up 3" dance performance on Fallon.  Really superb dancing, although I didn't really care for the contortionist girl.  And I spotted at least two SYTYCD stars.

The Japanese are gifted people... in the weird and absurd.  But I guess we do have an old bald dancing man and his mini-me in our ads.

Micro Frog Discovered

 The mini frogs (Microhyla nepenthicola) were found on the edge of a road leading to the summit of the Gunung Serapi mountain, which lies within Kubah National Park. […]
The frogs were tracked by their call, and then made to jump onto a piece of white cloth to be examined closer. […]
“I saw some specimens in museum collections that are over 100 years old. Scientists presumably thought they were juveniles of other species, but it turns out they are adults of this newly-discovered micro species,” said Dr. [Indraneil Das of the Institute of Biodiversity and Environmental Conservation at the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak].

Although I think it should've taken place in a Chinese restaurant, this new video for MGMT's "Congratulations" is weirdly similar to Yeasayer's "Madder Red" video.  Are both bands taking the same hallucinogenic drug?

Goofy video for Yeasayer's "Madder Red" starring Veronica Mars, I mean Kristen Bell.  I don't think the video does the song justice.  But at least we now know the band doesn't take themselves too seriously.
