Hello friends!

I am really busy today, but I will share this link with you so that you can discover a new artist and watch a lovely little movie.

Have a great day.

I don’t want to like this. But I have to. Because it’s some straight-up Cremaster-type art and it’s incredible.

And, yes, it was also the featured song on last week’s Gossip Girl.

I know. I’m almost 30. Suck it.

Oh my. First let me tell you how this happened.

I was writing my weekly Ypsi nightlife column, and I needed to check out one of the artists coming to the Dreamland Theater next weekend (a week from this coming weekend… I work WAY in advance).

I typed in her link.

And I found this.

I was so excited I had to stop what I was doing just to open a new window and tell you about it.

Then I went to youtube and found this:

And she’s coming to OUR LITTLE TOWN! Well, I live in Ann Arbor, so Ypsi’s not really MY little town. But it’s close enough. And I used to work there. And some of my best friends live in Ypsi. Well, at least they used to.

Laura Barrett is at the Dreamland Theater, 26 N. Washington, in Ypsi on Saturday, May 31 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door. For advance tickets: www.menomenology.com.

It is pretty much guaranteed that, if you start watching this video now, you will have amassed a gathering of co-workers within three minutes, and they will stand around your computer and whoa! and oh! like the crowd at the Metropark on the Fourth of July.

Forget “Jumper.” The Ann Arbor sightings in this video are much more exciting, since there’s a real dude (Colin Bell) climbing all over them. I would make a comment about his perennially shirtless state, but that would be unprofessional.
You can read more about him HERE. I wanted to do the story, but the intrepid entertainment reporter (and my partner in weekend video crime) Roger LeLievre beat me to it.
