I fucking love Too Many Zooz after catching a video of them busking in the subway. I share that video every time it comes up in my Facebook feed, to the extent that my friends and fam now tag me whenever they see TMZ or Lucky Chops clips. Today, in the comment thread on a Lucky Chops performance I’ve seen a couple of times, I found this freaking GEM of Too Many Zooz busking at Christmas time. There are many santas and elves splashing cash and it’s all very adorable. Do yourself a favour and spend 10 minutes on this atrocious display of talent. The mind boggles, really.

For the last month or so, I’ve been bingeing on The Hook Up–a podcast of the Triple J segment that airs every Sunday night. The podcast, hosted by supermegababe Hannah Reilly, covers all manner of topics to do with sex, relationships and everything in between and it is bloody excellent. Even episodes dealing with topics I’d never thought to look into further (the recent show on living with HIV for example) are enlightening, funny and incredibly moving in some instances, and provide perspectives that maybe you didn’t know you needed to hear. Go check it.

Check out these bloody lovely photographs from 1950s New York that were recently found in storage and wish you had the ability to time travel. (I may or may not be hyperventilating over the pigeons outside the cinema feat. Judy Garland and Marlon Brando.)

It’s been a crap day, so please enjoy things that have made me happy before midday happened.

I’ve been bursting to post this video on every social media channel possible since I saw Sing Street on Tuesday because I love everything about this ever so please enjoy this Back to The Future-inspired clip in which Aiden Gillen/Littlefinger dad-dances. You heard me.

This makes me so happy. GO SEE SING STREET.

San Diego Comic-Con is on again. You know how I know? Because about a thousand awesome trailers just hit my Facebook feed thanks to the massive platform it is for launching good shit™. Please enjoy the many I have watched this morning:

I do heartily enjoy Lego movies/video games so this is gon’ be CUTE.

 

They promised us The Biggest Kong Ever and they defs did, but you’re gonna need a lot of peanut butter to fill that one…

 

 

(it was a great joke, don’t pretend otherwise)

 

Am I excited or completely baffled by Guy Ritchie’s take on the Excalibur legend? You tell me, I don’t even know.

 

So…. Just….. YES.

 

In an interesting turn of events, the full trailer actually leaves me wondering why they’ve decided to film version of Eddie Redmayne’s PokemonGo experience????????? But it’s Potterverse so I will be there, at the first session, in my Hermione costume because yOU CANNOT TAKE THIS AWAY FROM ME.

 

White Stripes + Jason Momoa + Ezra Miller + Batfleck = I AM SO READY

This perfect Craigslist ad for a breakup blender is possibly my third favourite thing on the internet today (I really like trailers okay)

Review part II: Backstreet’s actually back now, like, for reals guys

Yesterday I posted Part I of my journey through the back-catalogue of the Backstreet Boys’ discography, because I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate their return to Australia than by bingeing on their infectiousness. We looked at their first two albums and the impact they had on 90s pop music. The timewarp continues with albums three, four and five below… Continue reading
