Video: MGMT – “Time To Pretend” I guess this is old news, but I just saw this video for the first time on Subterranean last week (higher-resolution QT version).

For the morning after a work party…

Video: Blake Shelton – “The More I Drink” I first heard this song while flipping through radio stations in West Michigan, and was hooked as soon as I heard the very first line: “He was sittin’ at the bar, sippin’ a Regular Coke.” Not a Rum & Coke, certainly not a Diet Coke, not even … Continue reading For the morning after a work party…
