The Accordion Connection

Simone says there's a popular indie rock band called the "Accordion Connection, you know, that one with all the guys on stage at once, and one of them has a drum? You know who I mean". Anyway, this is an unrelated blog of bitchin' YouTube videos.

Are We Human or Is We Spaceman?

Brandon Flowers is all like "I am David Bowie to these poor tragic Burning Man attendees" in this video:

Spaceman


Simone: This looks like the Mighty Boosh.

Are We Human or Is We Jesus?

Brandon Flowers (if that is his real name! as if that is anybody's real name!) is all like "I am God to these poor tragic Mexicans" in this video:



What's the Mormon Church's stance of Freddie Mercury mustaches? I thought they were totally like coffee or suits covered in plumes from the rarest cocaine-fed ostriches:

Career Advice for Aging Rock Stars



Simone: While high out of my mind on the airplane on some sort of prescription painkiller that made me horribly nauseous about halfway throught my flight, I was thinking about Courtney Love, and how she's never gonna really get to have a comeback, because she's an "old lady" now, and has totally fucked up her face and shit, but Mickey ROURKE, of all people, who is old and has a terrible face and shit gets to have a "critically acclaimed" comeback. I mean, at least Robert Downey Jr. kept his looks! But man! Mickey Rourke! And Courtney will never get to be critically acclaimed!



Gaby: I think if Courtney fell out of the public eye for a while, and then came back doing something completely different and weird (like, world music or electronica or something) and acted like she had matured emotionally at least a little or something, I do think she could have a comeback, even though she does kind of look like Mickey Rourke. I think she can't have a comeback right now because you gotta go away to come back! (a la Marianne F.)




Gaby: Man, I can't believe C. Love herself hasn't thought of this! If I were her, I would like fucking go out to Russia or Turkmenistan or something, disappear for a few years, and then come back knowing all this crazy shit and basically become Brian Eno. It would be good for Frances Bean, too! Keep her away from all those Teen Vogue people.




Gaby: The real sad story is I think CL is so addicted to any kind of press attention and famous friends and, like, going to Valentino's pool parties in Monoco or whatever, she could never help herself and the world by going away and coming back and letting herself become genuinely cool or interesting. Now that I think about this, this is also my prescription for Stevie Nicks! I'm actually way more stoked for a Stevie Nicks electronica world music comeback. Oh man, what if they BOTH did it and then like Courtney was David Byrne and Stevie was Brian Eno, and they basically made "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" or whatever for like the 21st century? Courtney already took the first step to this collaboration a long while back:



Gaby: This is a blog post, isn't it?

Simone: Uh, obviously!
