I haven’t had much impetus to blog, though I have some ideas roaming around in my head. But I see that a lot of people have liked the Gossip Girl post that I put up a little while ago. GG is on summer break, of course. Chuck Bass is romancing interchangeable women; Blair probably jumped the guy in the jump seat. Perhaps Georgina jumped off a bridge to escape boarding school and is backpacking in the Himalayas plotting up new ways to drive Serena crazy. Only Gossip Girl knows for sure, but she’ll tell you as soon as she finds out :D

Most of these are from the earlier parts of the series. Enjoy. I am especially fond of “Happy Ending.” I never listen to the radio, and I expect this was super-overplayed and everyone else is sick of it. But it really flies, especially when it starts taking a page from Freddie Mercury.

Gossip Girl

My guilty pleasure is back … that shiny, ridiculous show where 3/4 of the actors give their lines with a sort of glassy stare. But hey, as the drama ratchets up between B and Little J, and Serena’s crazy ex-best-friend stalks the unsuspecting Dan, let’s take a moment to appreciate another show that keeps up with the musical times. This week’s ep even featured a Vampire Weekend song, making me think that it’s probably someone at Brooklynvegan that moonlights as the music editor.

So if you’re dying for some Upper East Side glamour in your life, steal your friend’s mom’s Valentino dress and rock out to the following.

01 The Kills — Sour Cherry
02 Crystal Castles — Crimewave (Crystal Castles vs HEALTH remix)
03 Flo Rida — Elevator
04 Figurines — The Air We Breathe
05 The Deadly Syndrome — Eucalyptus

Bonus Video: Henry Mancini’s absolutely gorgeous “Moon River”
