#1 Song in the Country. Jesus.
Lady Gaga was, um, a spectacle on The Tonight Show last week. There’s something funny about a pantless poorly-cordinated bimbo staggering around stage, attempting to play a keyboard, singing about how she doesn’t know where she is and had too much to drink the night before while Thriller rejects bounce around her. Roofie-Pop… so hot right now.
This will probably be pulled off of YouTube eventually (but you can see it on Hulu), so here are my screencaptured highlights:
Lady Gaga strikes a pose:
Lady Gaga does a very loose Robot:
Lady Gaga does a very poor Charleston:
Lady Gaga paws at a piano held up by one of her backup-dancers:
Lady Gaga does the Charleston again, while 24‘s Mary Lynn Rajskub and Dustin Hoffman smirk behind her:

So, here’s the deal. I kept referring to my past Pitchfork commentary, but then I realized my MySpace blog is torturously slow (and some of the pics are missing). So, I’ve rescued it from that page, updated some of the pics, reformatted, and voila… a year-old piece that still makes fun of festival-goers effectively. (A topic that, apparently, is timeless.) Away we go!

In and Out
Well………. both Pitchfork and Lolla have occured and aside from all the music I wanted to see, a bonus for going is the people-watching. Trends come and go, but never are they more embraced (badly or not) than at music festivals.
I’m not dismissing and ESPECIALLY not condoning any of these, but here’s a little heads up about what the art undergrads and coffeeshop workers near you will be sporting and/or name-dropping over the next few months:
In: White/plastic-framed sun-glasses, and the glasses David Duchovney’s wore in Zoolander
Out: The Baumer
In: The Smooth Sailor
Out: Truckers Caps
In: Painters Caps
In: low-cc pedal-start motorbikes
Out: Soccer jerseys
In: old-school soccer / tennis / basketball shorts
Out: the urban cowboy
In: the urban lumberjack
Out: useless terms like “electroclash”
In: useless terms like “futureshock”
