This.  Is.  Just.  WOW.

Here’s a little girl that takes her father’s side to belt out an acoustic cover of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zero‘s “Home”, and let’s just say I actually felt what some people call…emotion?

It’s great to see a little girl that’s not looking up to the half-naked pop artists like Lady GAG, Katy Perry, Rihanna, etc., but looking up to her father’s tastes and appreciating some serious indie music (“Someday, I’m gonna whistle.”).



“Let me come home – home is wherever I’m with you”

Though we may never get an interview from Aeroplane to officially confirm, I think it’s pretty clear that Aeroplane is either mocking or paying tribute to Lady Gaga.  I tend to sway towards mocking based on the lyrics:    “Who do you think you are?” – “Why you wanna do it?”…”be like the others”…

Aeroplane takes it one step further with models wearing the entire kitchen sink.  Is meat on your head, toast as a blindfold, and spoons on your knees considered art now?

PSA: Lady Gaga Bashing On HOLD.

Posted: March 1, 2010 in PSA

I’ve given up talking smack about Lady Gaga – just for Lent.  It hasn’t been easy.  So, I won’t comment on anything she does for the remaining month.  After Easter, let’s chat again.  There should be some good stuff to discuss.


Last time we all checked, wearing a “weave” shaped like an elephant was not cool.  Furthermore, you’re NOT Regina Spektor and should stop with the “acoustic” attempts at your much hyped and overplayed tracks.  Your piano playing and your shot at changing up the vocals to make it feel “classical” doesn’t work when you have an animal sitting on your head.  Give it a rest. 




Is this a cry for help?  Was this person deprived as a child?  How disgusted are you with yourself that you feel the need to do this?  Are you not worthy of being looked at in the face and eyes?  You’re a human, not a walking art piece.  If you were looking to grab our attention, done.  If you were looking to be more disliked, that was done much better.

Please retire.

All the best,


She comes across as a soft spoken girl who, at some point, might have been mislead by a senseless best guy friend or trapped in a relationship that maybe needed some breathing room (“Under My Bed”).

Then she has her glass-half-full moments where she daydreams of good mornings (“How Lucky We Are”) or the perfect soulmate (“Reasons to Love You”).  Looking at her lyrics as a whole, it’s a definite mindfuck and watching her perform on Thursday night (May 7th at the Canal Room), it’s hard to imagine why anyone would dare put Meiko in any glass-half-empty situations.  She wouldn’t hurt a fly, I don’t think.

Winning me over after hearing the first note, Meiko has a quality of writing lyrics that are short, sweet, catchy, but with a sting if you once turned on her and deserve it. Her voice is strong and one of the cleanest I’ve ever heard – what you hear on her album is what you get in her live performances (please take note, Lady Gaga).

After the show, she shared with me that a new album is in the works and the plan is to release it in the next four to five months.  Before then, she plans to return to NYC for another show; currently planning to return in a month.  Two pieces of really great news.

Pictures and setlist below…plus JayVee of The Round Table has her take on the show, video, and my genuis move of tripping Meiko on the way to the stage.  Head there for more good Meiko material, and the scoop on the excellent opening band, Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons.

For the first time in the history of the world, Spencer Pratt, of MTV guilty-pleasure hit-show The Hills, talks some real sense to America and actually makes a statement that I endorse 110%.

Finally, someone speaks the truth and slaps Lady GaGa with a reality check on her overexposure and overrated “talent”.  Now if only the rest of the people that seem to take a liking for her can eventually jump off the Gag wagon and possibly support real indie-pop females that don’t rely on video-montage-art-shows to do most of the heavy lifting during concerts…

Here’s is wiseman Pratt’s statement as issued to US Weekly:

“I can’t get over that she is a huge pop icon of the world,” Montag’s beau Spencer Pratt dissed Friday on Q100 Atlanta’s The Bert Show. “People are acting like she’s the new Britney Spears … I don’t know even why this girl gets so much attention and press. I guess if you dress like a fool and have crazy, ridiculous haircuts, people start paying attention.”
