My list of Coolness Blog

{July 20, 2009}   Monday Morning News

I had a great weekend! I hope you did too. Spent some time with friends at the beach, some time with online Tori Amos fans , watched some interesting TV and learned all about things that bite and all about pot on CNBC. The weekend ended seeing one of the best live music shows – The Avett Brothers – I’ve seen all year.

Anyway, time for some headlines:

  • Some sad news: Author Frank McCourt died over the weekend. I think I’m going to read Angel’s Ashes in his honor
  • Thom Yorke of Radiohead played solo this past weekend. Hear one of the songs from the show: The Present Tense . You can see his setlist from the show and download the song here! UPDATE: here’s a better quality version of the song
  • Hear “First Train Home” the first single off Imogen Heap’s upcoming album Eclipse
  • Neko Case is offering some Live music on Itunes
  • Unfortunately, last week Madonna‘s stage collapsed, killing two people, but if Β you’re in or were thinking about going to Barcelona, you might want to take the risk and be in Madonna’s next video. UPDATE: Over the weekend Madonna visited the family of one of the people killed.
  • Coldplay is breaking album sales records and premiering a new video “Strawberry Swing” TODAY on
  • Watch the trailer for the new season of Project Runway! I don’t know about you, but for the people in my house Aug. 20 can’t come soon enough! Watch the trailer:
  • Jorja Fox (aka Sarah) is returning to CSI this season. Yay! No word if Grissom is back though.
  • I don’t know what’s weirder: Harry Potter’s Emma Watson playing Cinderella or that it’s in Marilyn Manson’s version of the fairytale
  • How much of a nerd are you? I’m a pretty big one, but don’t think I would get this
