Since first discovering the comedic genius of Clay Weiner, I can't stop watching his shorts on YouTube. I've waited 6 long months to finally be able to post one of my favs called, "The Christmas Tree," which features a character that is disturbingly a bit too recognizable as any one of our moms or grandmas. Now pick up that shit.

Just a little Dusty

BY Laurie in Music Stuff |

I went to see the very fine singer, Shelby Lynne sing the songs off her upcoming 2008 album of Dusty Springfield covers, Just a Little Lovin' last night at Hiro in NYC.
