Like my iPod's stuck on replay, replay...

Sometimes I get driven crazy by a song
because it is just so freaking fantastic.
It gets stuck in my head for days and days
and all I want to do is to listen to it
over and over again.
So I do. Because I can.
Because I'm rotting in the basement of a library for 20 hours a week
with nothing to do but to let songs fester in my head.
It's fantastic.

Here is the song that have been driving me absolutely crazy this week:

Bury the Floor, by Scattered Trees
(thanks Zac, for introducing me. These guys are boss.)
I would recommend listening here on grooveshark, or finding it on lastfm or spotify.
Wishing so bad they were more popular because they don't have this song on youtube yet.

So if you're too lazy to go searching for that song, just click play on the handy little youtube video I embedded below.
This song is almost as good
And music video is awesome.
Introducing: Love and Leave, by Scattered Trees



Other songs that are basically on my repeat for hours and hours:
Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves), by The Wombats
Once, by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova
Moth's Wings, by Passion Pit
All of This, by the Naked and Famous
ANYTHING BY YOUNG THE GIANT


P.S.
If you've got a song and you're like,

 "dude. O_o"

then hit a sista up. I'm in love with "The Naked and Famous" and "Young the Giant" off of suggestions from other peeps, so... yeah. Talk to me.

Napoleon's gonna be on TV... gosh!

You think I'm kidding.

But I'm totally not.

Napoleon Dynamite is coming to Fox in 2012. 13 episodes.

The animated show will be directed by the film's director Jared Hess, and written by the Simpson's writer Mike Scully.

And the entire cast will come back to play their same roles.
Seriously, all of them.

Plus they're adding some new characters to be played by Amy Poehler (SNL), Sam Rockwell (Um.. everything),  Jennifer Coolidge (Bend and Snap from Legally Blonde) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords).


I'm adding this to my list of 7 other absolutely-watch-or-die tv shows.


Giggety giggety giggety.

Quirky Snow White Movie... with Julia Roberts



Oh you heard me right.

Julia Roberts is starring in a Tarsem production of Snow White, along with Armie Hammer (The Social Network), Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings), Lily Collins, and Nathan Lane.


I emphasize Tarsem because he previously directed the most INCREDIBLE movie of all time, "The Fall".

His quirky but gorgeous style reminds me so much of Tim Burton, who could easily be classified as one of my greatest heros.

So, there is absolute definite tearful excitement for this movie coming out in 2012.

PLUS it's going to be rivaling another Snow White film coming out in the same year. Starring Kristen Stewart (guffaw...). I can't wait to see this beauty slash that one to the ground.

In order to get a glimpse of what you're in for, here is the preview for the movie "The Fall" that came out in 2006 (starring the delicious Lee Pace).
