This week I barely had time for the internet, which is weird because the internet is like my family. Thank god I was still able to catch some of the more important moments, like Vulture's "Fame in 1998" series. 1998 forever, dudes. —Katie
Like I said, Vulture was really speaking my language this week with the whole "Fame in 1998" series they did. There's an incredible Van Der Beek
interview about what fame was like in '98 (no cell phones!), an entire Titanic timeline
($2k "heaven dress" reproductions!), and a re-printing of a Nancy Jo Sales article
on Leo's partying, which seals her fate as my favorite, pop-trash journalist.
Apparently Outkast will be reuniting at Coachella next year! Go watch all of their music videos to pump yourself up, especially "Roses
." (That video is from 2003, BTW, so also have fun feeling like an ancient troll monster as you watch it.)
Well, lookit that. The Chris Gethard Show, a NYC-based cult comedy program, will be submitting a pilot to Comedy Central. If you've never heard of the show, check out some of the clips online - this live proposal
was so touching, they just shut the show down right after. So cute. It's a great show, and a Comedy Central slot is totally deserved for these guys.
Good ol' Bobby D released an interactive music video for "Like a Rolling Stone
" and it's amazing. I cried, for some reason? If you haven't seen it yet, it's definitely worth playing around with - you can flip through 16 television stations, all of which have different personalities singing "Like a Rolling Stone." (My favorite station is the one with Danny Brown.)
Last but not least, and my favorite thing of this week, the video for Kanye's "Bound 2." Words can not express how much I love this video. And Kanye.
