Chambaland - My Heart Will Do It Right (Celine Dion vs. Daft Punk)
Quick and dirty and French.
Do I have such a passion for sublime 80s beats, as exemplified in “Falling” by Haim (above) and Tegan and Sara’s most recent album, purely out of nostalgia (for college more than the actual 80s) or, rather, out of some kind of genetic predisposition for sublime 80s beats? Both? Both and? I don’t know. I guess I ultimately don’t care.
I think it is safe to say that while the South is hardly Christ-centered, it is most certainly Christ-haunted.
One of the most true things I’ve ever read about my homeland.
This set by Joe Pera is one of my favorite comedy sets ever. At the first round of this year’s March Madness tournament at Carolines, sixty-four comics (myself among them) each did one minute of comedy. Most of us were loud and fast, doing our best jokes machine gun style. Joe Pera went up dead last. He spent the first ten seconds of his set calmly and quietly adjusted the position of the mic without speaking a word. He used the next ten seconds to do one joke. The rest of the set was one long applause break.
If you missed it, here’s Joe’s submission video to last year’s Andy Kaufman awards, which is brilliant as well. He’s one of the most original and surprising comics in the city; there is truly no one like him.
Also enjoy this funny video with Pera and Bilderbergers friend Nathan Min.
Heard about this band the same way I hear about most bands––my dad sends me an email with a link to All Songs Considered.
