Ben Folds, Nick Hornby And Pomplamoose Team Up For “Things That You Think”


Ben Folds must have loved collaborating with Nick Hornby so much on that Levi Johnston song that he had to do it again for “Things That You Think” (which totally reminds me of “You Don’t Know Me”). Pomplamoose makes a super-adorable appearance, but I kind of love Nick Hornby’s grumpy old-man voiceovers. Isn’t this kind of the cutest nerd friendship ever? Here’s to more writers in music videos!

Ben Folds And Nick Hornby Write An Ode To Levi Johnston


I have mixed feelings about Levi Johnston. On the one hand, he’s hot. But on the other, he’s one of those people who just won’t go away. So I’m laughing pretty hard at this hilarious song “Levi Johnston’s Blues” by Ben Folds and Nick Hornby. In the tune, the musician and novelist rip into the Alaskan big papa, portraying him as ignorant, childish and just plain ridic. Ben and Nick poke fun at the Palins while they’re at it. My fave line: “I get on my dirtbike and ride to my girl’s. I’m gonna lay down the law and tell her what’s goin on. I’m a fucking redneck I like to hang out with the boys, play some hockey, do some fishin’ and kill some moose.” Keep reading »

MUSIC

  • Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson
    I don’t want to hate on American Apparel, because I love it, but seriously, Oscar-winning Jennifer Hudson needs to fire her stylist. On the cover of her first solo record, she’s in a basic dress that hipsters have been humping in for years — boring! She’s too fabulous for that fashion faux pas! Maybe she’s just surrounding herself with the wrong kind of people, like her fiancé, Punk, from VH1’s “I Love New York 2.” Anyway, my apologies for putting the look over the sound, but the music isn’t much to write about. It’s just Top 40-style R&B. Still, she’s got a great voice and I’m sure you’ll be hearing “Spotlight” while you’re shopping at your drug store in the near future.
