Oh my my, oh hell yes. That’s a good way to sum up the amazing Tom Petty show I just saw this past weekend! Now, this is my second time visiting the beautiful Gorge in George, WA to see the elusive man himself play his heart out. And it was just as impressive as the first!
Thanks to my dear friend Mike, I got a ticket and an in with his group going to the show. We had an amazing time at the cabin one of the guy’s provided to us, enjoyed the keg someone brought up and sang to high heaven in the pitch black of the Gorge. AND! Steve Winwood was the opener…uhh, only the BEST opener to Petty ever! (Ok that’s debatable)
Final thought: Go see him if you can, the man is getting old and he may not be around for much longer touring!
I just came home from seeing my favorite Light in the Attic band play at Neumo’s in Capitol Hill. I definitely love the sound and their drummer Bob is freakin’ amazing. He plays like there’s no tomorrow and gets so into it you just want to rock out with him…you WISH you knew how to keep a beat. Anyway, they are great and here is one of my favorite songs from them called Two Times.
Stay tuned for my follow up on the Seattle Supersonics Super Sticky Situation. Here’s a teaser:
Sonics Trial Loser…
My dear friends Paul and Kira showed me this hilarious Weekend Update with Judy Grimes. I haven’t been watching SNL for the last few years but this little 2 minute clip may have just prompted me to start watching again. Just kidding I’ll never watch again. Just kidding. Anyway, just watch the clip!
Thanks Sydney Morning Herald!
I had lowish expectations for the most current Apatow movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall but those were completely BLOWN AWAY by how awesome the movie was! Plus there was full frontal male nudity. What I didn’t realize was that it was written by the lead character Jason Segel who I LOVE (he’s the one from How I Met Your Mother and Freaks and Geeks). I think the story line was something that everyone can easily follow and sympathize with but obviously never gets too serious. My model friend JJ said that it “touched him” but that’s because it made him want to be in a relationship…which is a pretty big deal because he shuns relationships, so I guess the movie is that good.
I was impressed with the cast, but most of all I enjoyed the vampire puppet musical. And with that I leave you to go see the movie.

Apparently Ashlee Simpson went ahead with the crowd and got herself knocked up by Pete Wentz. Nice “engagement” story you guys told the media a few days back…how about you go ahead and tell them something new? That you got pregnant and had to get engaged to make it look like it wasn’t a mistake? I love The Superficial (many of you know this) and I especially love how he HATES Pete Wentz. The Sun reports:
Pete recently posted a blog online announcing the couples’ plans to make something that cannot be illegally downloaded, hinting at a baby. In the bizarre video message, Ashlee and Pete, who have dated since last summer, also reveal that the “release date” is July 2008, before Ashlee poses with a cushion stuffed under her top.
I don’t believe this story, not because it’s from the Sun but because Ashlee can’t be due in July. Unless she is giving birth to a couch cushion of course. That’s major bump hiding and I don’t believe it. But she’s still probably sperminated.

So I just came across this video of Will Ferrell as Bush and it’s always just nice to see Bush getting made fun of. I’m pretty sure this is from last night’s “Night of Too Many Stars” with Jon Stewart. Plus, the video came from funnyordie.com and I have had some laughs there. So perhaps you will too. I mean, if Bush’s memoirs are a work of fiction on TAPE, sign me UP.
What the hell? I get a new job and can’t surf the internet during the day so I only get to check my beloved people.com every so often. And then I check it and I see this:
Right there in the headline news. What the HELL? Oh my word I am so defeated. That show is great and awesome and this is soooo not awesome. I was pretty sure that Brit was in a shame spiral the last…oh, 100 times I checked celebrity entertainment…so what is this?!
