I may be the only woman in the country who doesn’t get the whole Magic Mike thing. Not a single one of those men are holding a sonic screwdriver or a book. None of them are dressed as Boba Fett or Captain Malcolm Reynolds either. I have no interest.
While I haven’t seen Magic Mike (and really, I’m not a Steven Soderbergh fan anyway) , I think we
can should all agree that The Full Monty is the best comedy about male strippers. Yeah, I know…the guys getting their kit off aren’t geekgasm worthy ,either but it’s the right degree of quirky and I love that.
Now, we all know that Jim Morrison isn’t really dead but whatever…I’ll play along.
Skrillex with members of The Doors. I scoffed at first ,too, but this really isn’t bad.
One of my favorite podcasts, Coverville, celebrated ‘Merica’s Independence Day with American-artist covers of songs by bands and performers that were part of the first British Invasion. I hadn’t heard this cover of Donovan’s “Season of the Witch” before and you know, gotta check out all the Donovan covers, since my kid was not really named after him.
I don’t know much about this band except that 1)They’re from Scotland, 2) I like them and 3) they have some great points as to why their song about Goran Ivanisevic should become the anthem for all sporting events.
David Tennant is the guest in the first hour…and THEN, Shirley Manson, discussing the new Garbage (which I gushed a little about a couple weeks back)
