September’s A Long Way Away

…and a very, very long time to wait for a new episode of Modern Family. Even though it’s only been two days since the finale, we don’t blame you if you’re in MF-withdrawal. Since September’s a long time to wait, hopefully this video of Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Mitchell”) covering Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” will be able to give you a quick fix:

Glee Goes GaGa

While every other show is busy wrapping up its season (or series), Glee still has a few songs to belt out before school’s out for the summer. Of those remaining, next week’s Lady Gaga-themed episode, “Theatricality,” is probably the most hotly anticipated. Revolving around introverted Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), the storyline will focus on self-expression, and culminates in Tina becoming a goth. Yeah. Keep in mind, this is the same show that recently named guest star Jonathan Groff’s character “Jesse” pretty much solely so it could use the song “Jessie’s Girl.” We never said we watched this show for the plot…

Regardless of the questionable storyline, we can’t lie about our excitement to watch “Bad Romance” and “Poker Face” as performed by McKinley High’s finest. You can download those songs from next week (and others from the rest of the season) for free here. I think it’s safe to say that as long as the show keeps up the quality of its musical numbers, Glee’s got a halo around its finger around me.

Things That Could Have Been Cool (I Guess), But Aren’t: The Lady Gaga Comic Book

via Bluewater Productions

Bluewater Productions has decided to make some “culturally relevant” comic books based on the lives of some of the biggest celebrities. So they made one about Lady Gaga. But from the early released photos of the comic book, it doesn’t look all that exciting. Other celebs to get the comic book treatment? Robert Pattinson, David Beckham, 50 Cent. Nothing could sound more interesting.

Excuse my sarcasm, it’s an overcast Monday here in LA. And you know we Angelenos don’t fare well without our sunshine.

We Only Report the News…

Like The New Yorker, NPR is one of those things that you tell people you like in order to impress them and make them think you’re smarter than you really are. While I do occasionally listen to NPR, it’s typically because I accidentally hit the wrong buttons when trying to flip between KIIS FM and AMP Radio. On top of that, I’m not going to lie to you…I only have it programmed in my car so that anyone else who rides in it will think I have more brain cells than the minimum needed to analyze the lyrics of “Ridin’ Solo” (no offense to Jason Derulo- it’s really catchy!). The main reason I have a hard time listening to NPR? It’s not the stories (which are fairly interesting), but the way they are delivered. Dull and montone – they are almost enough to put me to sleep…on a Thursday afternoon…on the 405.

So, when I first watched this video put together by NPR’s team, I was shocked. Sure, the dancing is off, and the movement is horribly, horribly uncomfortable and awkward – but it made me want to tune in and give the station a second chance. Maybe they should start playing GaGa in between stories about the secret ways to order a Big Mac and the undoubtedly-crazy history of Yoga.

Lil’ Gaga

You’ve probably seen this video, but if you haven’t it’s worth checking out. Whether you love or hate Lady GaGa – this Justin Bieber-lookalike’s performance of “Paparazzi” is incredible. You’ll be able to see it again live tomorrow on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he’ll be performing it for the host (and Lady GaGa fan).

ASOS: Quite Possibly the Best Webstore…Ever

Online clothing store ASOS was officially launched in the year 2000, but I only discovered the site until late last year. While many have proclaimed the past decade as one of “zero” or nothingness, I can safely say that this one discovery at the eleventh-hour of 2009, made that decade as a whole worthwhile for me. While it began as a clothing store, ASOS has transformed over the years, and now produces its own clothing, publishes its own magazine, and has become a lifestyle brand in its own right.

But, be careful with ASOS. On a recent night, a casual visit resulted in a massive emptying of my wallet, the loss of hours of productivity, and a strange (but temporary) yearning to be British. The reasons why this site is so amazing are many – an insane amount of variety, shockingly low prices, fashion-forward choices, and probably the most easily navigable shopping site I’ve ever seen. What other internet portal lets you search by size, style, color, brand, and price range all at once? And then once you’ve found something, let’s you have almost every detail you could ask about the product. Best of all? For us Americans, you can conveniently switch the site from pricing in pounds to American dollars. Genius! Unless you don’t really want to know how much you’re spending…which I often find I don’t…

I’d love to keep ASOS my little secret, but it’s only a matter of time until it’s everywhere. When it’s this easy to use, this in-style, and this rapidly on the rise, how could it ever stay a secret forever?

Wheel of Misfortune

Have you ever heard the phrase “painfully stupid”? If not, then this video will be the perfect introduction. With soldiers performing like this at home, and reinacting Lady Gaga music videos abroad, it makes me just a tiny bit worried about national security…
