Well, things between Blair and Chuck are cooling down again, but it was a spectacular run while it was happening! Serena and her blah-blah relationship with Dan cannot compare, can it? Though Lily and Rufus were interesting for five minutes, when Rufus wasn’t being all “me me me me me me ME.” If only Lily would kick him to the curb! But no, the drama must remain high.

So you say you want to talk someone out of jumping off a roof ledge? Here are some tunes to get your courage up. This post goes out to Kendrick’s girl, if she should happen to read it :D

01 Greycoats — Watchman, What Is Left Of the Night? (2.16, “You’ve Got Yale!”)
02 The Faint — Mirror Error (2.15, “Gone With the Will”)
03 Shiny Toy Guns — Ricochet! (2.14, “In the Realm Of the Basses”)
04 The Sound Of Arrows — Danger! (Ice Cream Shout version) (2.11, “The Magnificent Archibalds”)
05 The Asteroids Galaxy Tour — The Sun Ain’t Shining No More (2.12, “It’s A Wonderful Lie”)
06 Franz Ferdinand — No You Girls (2.15, “Gone With the Will”)
07 Department Of Eagles — No One Does It Like You (2.14, “In the Realm Of the Basses”)
08 UNKLE (feat. the Duke Spirit) — Mayday (2.14, “In the Realm Of the Basses”)
09 The Little Ones — Like A Spoke On A Wheel (2.14, “In the Realm Of the Basses”)
10 The Fratellis — Tell Me A Lie (2.02, “Never Been Marcused”)

[ed note — the Greycoats song is, according to Gossip Girl Insider, supposed to appear on next week’s show. I hope it does so I don’t look dumb. But even if it doesn’t, it’s actually an awesome song.]

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.

01. Beck — Timebomb [from “The Handmaiden’s Tale”]
02. The Little Ones — There’s A Pot Brewin’ [from “Dare Devil”]
03. Rooney — When Did Your Heart Go Missing [from “The Wild Brunch”]
04. Akon — Don’t Matter [from the pilot]
05. Mika — Happy Ending [from “The Handmaiden’s Tale”]
06. Cold War Kids — Hang Me Up To Dry [from the pilot]

The Little Ones

Well, the holiday excitement is mostly over (some of you will still be celebrating Twelfth Night, and the Chinese still have the New Year to look forward to) … the new Gregorian year is here, and it’s looking interminable. So, to boost spirits for all those who are gong back to work today, a little pop. Get it — little? Ba dum ching.

The Little Ones came onto my radar and fell off it again back in September. But somehow last week their song “Cha Cha Cha,” a chipper little number, earwormed into my brain. I couldn’t remember what song it was, only that the chorus went “la la la …,” which is a very bad sign if you want to find an anonymous song. So yesterday I was sitting at my computer and “The Little Ones!” I said to myself. The Little Ones are a local LA band, and they have released an EP called “Sing Song.” Their artwork is cute, their blog is even cuter, and the music is catchy — like, evil catchy. It reminds me very much of the fun, handclappy, viral pop from The Format.

If you’re sitting at your desk wondering why the snow won’t stop — it was romantic at first, but geez — and why your inbox is so full of stuff that other people could do, well I can’t solve that problem for you. And I can’t fix the fax machine, but I can pep you up a bit. C’mon! Pop was made for January.
