A new music video premiere from KONGOS (“I Want To Know”). Also, at Sunday’s Golden Globes Family of the Year’s “Hero” could be heard whenever the movie “Boyhood” was announced. It’s an old song, but it’s getting a lot of buzz this week, thanks to a great soundtrack.
Stuff I’ve seen on the nets lately:
- House of Cards Season 3 will be out on February 27!
- Watch the reaction of these boys when they are asked to slap a girl.
- Disco Clams!
T.G.I.F. ! New stuff from Sergey Lazarev (“7 Wonders”),Osvaldo Supino (“Livin Again”), Max (“Mug Shot”), Ola (“This Could Be Paradise”), & Nick Deutsch (“Run”).
When is the Illinois media going to notice that the Illinois State University Football is in the National Championship game Saturday in Frisco, Texas against North Dakota? Sure, it’s “only” Division I-like the other state schools. They don’t get the inflated state funding that the teacher assistant taught U of I receives and most of our student athletes are academic achievers and actually graduate. You would think that a school that has more Chicago area alumni that the Choking Illini would get some media recognition and would get better than ESPN 2 covering the game?
Today’s Playlist features The Afghan Whigs (“The Lottery”), The Madden Brothers (“We Are Done”), Suite 16 (“Stupid Love Song”), & WolfGang “Black River”
This year’s Christmas ad from Sainsbury’s – Christmas is for sharing.

I included a video that explains the story behind the ad.
