This is Gramma’s Boyfriend (best band name ever, right?!) The lead singer is Haley Bonar, who in my opinion is the coolest fucking chick in the Twin Cities area, possibly the nation. I’ve never seen her live solo or with Gramma’s Boyfriend because I’ve been hustlin, busy or broke. But I have seen a lot of her videos online and talked about her drunk with girlfriends. Consensus: this bitch can ROCK. “I Have This Feeling” sounds like a song right out of Clueless during the scene where Cher is throwin shade at all the gross high school boys. The music video for the song is also super fun. A+.
Her vocal style is amazing, her dancing is the shit and the music is fucking awesome. But not only is she kicking ass in her side-project punk/new wave jam Gramma’s Boyfriend, she’s released a ton of music solo as Haley Bonar. I haven’t listened as much to her solo music yet as I was first introduced to her in GB, but I’ve seen a few performances online and they are solid af too. There’s a lot of electricity in this woman. I like how she’s weird. It’s so fucking rad. Definitely an inspirational woman in the local music scene. HB + Gramma’s Boyfriend are must sees in Minneapolis. “I NEED TO SEE GRAMMA’S BOYFRIEND LIVE” should be the only thing you’re thinking this summer. Plus maybe “I should get laid by a hot and respectful individual.” New summer goals y’all.
Check out Gramma’s Boyfriend’s live video performance of “We R Ctrl” below. It’s insanely cool.
Also take a listen to her solo tunes here. Totally totally totally worth it. Luv her!!!
Exerceese. We all need it.

Have you ever seen Zach Galifianakis’ faux interview show “Between Two Ferns”? If not, you’re missing out. This shit is weird, awkward and hilarious. Here’s a link to Comedy Central’s “Between Two Ferns” special where big Z interviews Tina Fey, Jon Stewart and Sir Richard Branson in New York Citay.
Also, since it’s Monday and those suck, here are some other videos of “Between Two Ferns”
I love Coldplay more than lots of people like to admit. This cover of the Beastie Boys’ “FFYRTP” is in true Coldplay mellow-rock form and is a beautiful tribute to Adam Yauch and the BBoys themselves. Definitely give it a listen.
“Intergalactic” came on at the club last night and everyone went cray cray. Here’s to a resurge of Beastie Boys music in the world’s clubs, because those songs are bamboo bangas.
We should seriously make all the old people we know watch this before they get a Facebook. They don’t need to know it wasn’t invented in the 90s. Then they’ll watch The Social Network and be all “hey, what gives!” and we’ll be like “payback for Santa Claus, suckas.”
I love the way she says "pitchure" for "picture." Genius. Image via firebellymarketing.com

I’m knee deep in an all out NSYNC obsession and pop music BINGE right now. It’s weird and nostalgic and oddly refreshing to get away from super synthy heavy tunes that are plaguing all radio stations, except when Adele is on (so every 5 minutes).
But here we have an original of a song that was featured on NSYNC’s second album No Strings Attached . “Just Got Paid” was actually recorded in 1988 by a guy named Johnny Kemp. I’ve never heard of him before. Maybe I’ll begin my Johnny Kemp obsession right now, cuz this song is all sorts of funky funky jam.
Yup. I'm taking dating advice from these guys. God help me. Image via i-donline.com
Sage advice from the Backstreet Boys.
If you want it to be good girl, get yourself a bad boy.
How Lana del Rey of them.
And definitely my new mantra. For at least a night.
Is it absolutely dumb as shit that I’m really into this? Yes. But the blond one is hot. I’m such a whore for 5 men dancing to pop music.
