Vampire Weekend – “Giving Up The Gun” Video (Feat. RZA, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lil Jon & Joe Jonas)

Headline says it. Yesterday you saw photo and blurb that introduced this far-flung pop cultural consortium, today it materializes. What does it say about this band that somehow this lineup of Friends Of Vampire Weekend not only doesn’t surprise but seems entirely logical to me?

Kanye Mocks Himself, Freestyles On SNL (And “Iran So Far” Digital Short)

Clearly, this couldn’t wait ’til Monday. Mr. West gamely mocks his much YouTube’d award show outbursts on Saturday Night Live‘s Lebron James-hosted season premiere…
