The Next Oscar Host

This is straight from Zap2it, but I was reading this earlier today. I don't know if they've picked an Oscar host yet, but who would you like to see up there? And no, you can't pick Hugh Jackman because he said he aint doing it. meh. Life goes on, but gosh darn that man can sing.

QATFYG: (these are the zap2it picks. If you're beau or gal isn't on the list feel free to write him/her in)
Who should host the 2010 Academy Awards?
Russell Brand
Steve Carell
George Clooney
Steven Colbert
Billy Crystal
Will Ferrell
Tina Fey
Jamie Foxx
Ricky Gervais
Whoopi Goldberg
Tom Hanks
Steve Martin
Amy Poehler ----My Vote
Will Smith
Oprah Winfrey

**I picked Amy Poehler because I think she has the most to gain, and she could do probably the most entertaining host job.

  1. I don't actually watch the Oscars, but frankly, I agree with you. Amy Poehler has the most potential of them all. I also wouldn't mind Steven Colbert and Tina Fey.

  2. right on Adam, I think Tina Fey could do a great job, but on the other side. I feel Amy P could make more of an impact with the performance. If that makes sense.

  3. Totally makes sense.

    Somewhat unrelated, but still kind of cool: my favorite English teacher in high school lived in New York back in the day. His roommate? Tina Fey.

  4. I would say Steve Carell. I think would be one the likely candidates. He has the ability to create humor, which is a key asset for an awards show host. In addition, he has a decent level of popularity. This would attract decent numbers in key demographics, which is important in choosing a host. He ultimately has the key characteristics that would make a decent host.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
