14 Months Skateboarding | Little Guy: Video
Wtf, are you kidding me? 6 years old? Skateboarding for 14 months? Some people play guitar, paint, ride bikes, play computer games and this kid has accomplished more in 14 months than most people combined.
Arcade Fire | Live on SNL
I haven't written about the new Arcade Fire album, The Suburbs, as of yet, so their appearance on SNL last night is a good excuse to gush about how much new album has grown on me. I always thought Win Butler's voice was great on previous albums, but when his wife, Régine Chassagne, would sing it left me perplexed, often sounding like a different band. However on The Suburbs, Régine Chassagne's voice melts into the rest of the songs and creating, in my opinion, they're most cohesive album to date. Is that really Scarlett Johanson or Sigourney Weaver?

Jonsi | Live @ Origami Vinyl: Video
I'm a big believer that a pretty good song can be stripped down to the bare minimum and still come across as something that can move you in some way. Or if it's a fairly simple-noisy pop song, a stripped down version can sometimes reveal the intricacies of just how well structured and good the song really is. This seems to be one of those songs.
