In case you didn’t know the London Olympics start today.
In honor of the event, we’re going with an all UK (and Ireland) theme for the next 16 days. To kick things off we give you the best known song of the music directors for tonight’s Opening Ceremonies. Underworld.
Yes, Underworld is serving as musical director for the Opening Ceremonies. Awesome.
Underworld: Born Slippy .NUXX, Born Slippy .NUXX [single]
The 2012 Olympics begin tomorrow, so here’s a shout out to folks traveling throughout Europe, both for the games…and just ‘cuz.
Cracker: Euro-Trash Girl, Cracker
Seriously, this is way funkier than I ever thought folks from this place could be. Does this make me a bad person?
Caligola: Sting of Battle, Forgive Forget
What’s in the water in Finland, yo?
First, Of Monsters and Men blows us away…then these guys. I think I know where I wanna go on my summer vacation.
Burning Hearts: Into the Wilderness, Extinctions
Also, these guys.
Of Monsters and Men: Little Talks,My Head is an Animal
Post Punk goodness from down under.
alibrandi: Even Lions May Fall, The Emergency
Beefcake tipped me off to this last week. And now…addicted.
No idea who this artist is. Don’t really care.
Also, I like the one that a kid made of him dancing to this…but the picture quality is better here.
Jason Derulo: I’m Han Solo: Star Wars Kinect
Ahhh, Opening Day.
I don’t mean last week in Japan. Or last night in Miami. I mean today. The real Opening Day.
I can’t talk about what it’s like to be a fan of any other team on Opening Day. I can only tell you about being a Cubs fan. And being a Cubs fan, Opening Day reminds you of those friends and family who never got to see their team win it all. And really, the patron saint of the faithful and departed is Steve Goodman.
And so for Steve, Uncle Sal, and all those whose names are spoken silently whenever you go through the turnstiles. Happy Opening Day.
Steve Goodman: Go Cubs Go, No Big Surprise
“Good for an anniversary, clearly, but also just good.”
As he was 9 years ago, CK is Johnny on the spot. It was nine years ago today that I asked MyWife to marry me.
Eventually, she said yes.
Tony, Tone, Toni!: Anniversary, Sons of Soul
