Flight Of The Conchords + Too Many Dicks On The Dancefloor

Oh man.  All due respect to the Lonely Island guys, but this is far superior to any of their stuff.  Plus this FOTC episode is directed by Michel Gondry, so it earns the hipster seal of approval.

Grizzly Bear + “Two Weeks”

Alright, this has been getting passed around the music blogs for a little while already so bear with me here.  Bad joke…  Anyway.   I’ve slept on this song for so long you might say I’ve been hibernating on it.  Okay, I have a problem.  No more.  Just enjoy the video and mp3.

You’re Not My Father by Paul Slocum

Watch this DJ Tanner and Joey Gladstone tear-jerker and tell me it isn’t the most bizarre, strangely fascinating, surreal, hilarious, hypnotic thing you’ve ever seen.  I honestly couldn’t take my eyes off the screen, I thought I was dreaming.

New Books From Anthony Bourdain

This is a few days old, but chef/raconteur/un-fuck-withable-badass, Anthony Bourdain has finally lined up his follow-up literary projects to Kitchen Confidential. From New York Magazine:

Anthony Bourdain’s COOKS, a follow-up to Kitchen Confidential, in which Bourdain explores how the industry he loves — and the people in it — have changed (if they’ve changed) since his years in the kitchen, and tracks the bizarre changes in his own life, along with more frank observations on dining, cuisine and the grim/glamorous business of cooking; NO NEW MESSAGES, a crime novel about a disgraced former ‘It Boy’ novelist and a disgraced chef (fresh off a public humiliation on a reality series), involved in a murder on the Caribbean island where both are laying low; and an untitled memoir of moving his family to a small village in Vietnam to spend a year in total immersion there, taking time to get to know his neighbors and deeply exploring Indonesia and Southeast Asia.

Fiction?  Interesting.  But judging from the description, it sounds like the protagonist shouldn’t be too much of a stretch.  Can’t wait for COOKS though.

Jonah Hill Leads ’21 Jump Street’ Adaptation

Apparently saying “This plan’s been fucked since Jump Street” in one of your movies is enough to earn you these kinds of things.  Set to write and produce the adaptation is our main man, Jonah Hill.  Write AND produce.  That’s an A-list kind of leap if we’ve ever heard of one.  Still not feeling confident about the guy?  Check this quote from an interview with MTV:

“It’s going to have some of the funniest people around in it, and it’s going to be really funny, I hope,” he said. “Or we won’t make it! If it doesn’t turn out funny, I promise you, we will not make it.”

See, anytime a guy uses the word ‘funny’ approximately 12 times in two sentences you know it’s going to be just that.  Actually, in all seriousness, I really hope this one turns out well and have faith in Hill’s ability and supporting cast to pull this off in a cool, original way.  Apparently Hill turned down a co-starring spot alongside the LaBeouf in the Transformers sequel to do this so let’s wish him the best.
