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  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
