If you have http://christy.wordpress.com/feed/ set up in your RSS reader (hint: you are seeing this message), you will want to update it to http://angelchrys.com/feed/.
Also, I kinda stuck Angelchrys.com back on its own instead of in WordPress.com, so commenting might be slightly different when you visit.
Pizza and beer, oh!
how delicious it will be
it is time to cheer
I don’t know much about Amanda Palmer.
I remember hearing the song Coin Operated Boy and thinking it was highly entertaining and more than just a little bit different. Beyond that, I don’t know if I could identify any of her music.
Based on this video, I’m going to go ahead and say she’s pretty damn awesome.
I’ve been thinking about That Thing You Do lately, which means it’s time for a re-watch.
I fell down the Wiki rabbit hole and discovered that the person who wrote the title song was Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger. (Don’t know Fountains of Wayne? Go watch Stacy’s Mom and Hey Julie and then come back here.)
Schlesinger and Mike Viola are who you actually hear singing in the movie and you can see them sing it in the clip below.
Here’s a clip from the movie of The Wonders playing a big crowd after they’ve started to gain a following.
You guys look great in red, have I told you that?
When I was looking up the song, I discovered that there have been several covers. I know some people can’t stand covers (hi Mom!), but I love them.
Next up, let’s check out a boy band covering a fictional boy band’s song. Be sure to bask in the glory of the velvet pants worn by NSYNC.
I know that sometimes, you just need to go punk. Am I right? Sadly, there’s no footage of New Found Glory actually playing, so enjoy the cheesetastic picture that appears to be from some time around the late 90s.
Ever heard of Shakalabbits? Me either, but they’re a Japanese rock band who decided to make a video of their cover. I have to say, this was the cover I was most unsure about, but I actually like it quite a bit.
Last, but not least (we’re going to give the title of least to New Found Glory) is Bubblegum Lemonade, a Scottish Indie Pop group who has a slightly dreamy feel.
Or, as I told a friend earlier today, “Happy Yam Sham Day!”
If you’ve not seen this episode of Buffy, go look up Pangs, which is from Season Four. If you don’t watch Buffy, I’m sad for you. At least watch this clip:
Now, I know that some people prefer to think of Thanksgiving as Slapsgiving, and I’m cool with that and wish you a happy Slapsgiving.
But perhaps you prefer Friends?
I still think they should release DVDs of just the Thanksgiving episodes.
Some people may notice that I have thus far left out my favorite Thanksgiving tradition–listening to Alice’s Restaurant while driving to wherever I plan on eating turkey that year.
So just remember…you can get anything you want, at Alice’s Restaurant! (excepting Alice)
