VOTD: ‘Needing/Getting’ it done

Miss the premiere of OK Go’s latest, craziest vid during the Super Bowl? Prepare yourself.

While OK Go have never been especially notable for the quirky pop-rock music it records, the painstaking amount of care that goes into their music videos is unassailable. Seriously, if Pavement had invested that much thought and energy into anything, Stephen Malkmus would have recorded 35 platinum records and currently be serving his fifth consecutive term as the governor of California right now.

But, yeah, a condensed version of this video ran during the fourth quarter of last night’s great celebration of American media. It’s so awesome as to demand a few proper watches in full, just to take it all in. The video’s YouTube page insists that the Chevy Sonic was outfitted with pneumatic arms; singer Damian Kulash took stunt driving lessons; the band sang in actual time while driving the car; and that the whole thing required four months to properly put together. Sweet lord.

Take note, musicians: If you’re going to shoot a commercial for a car manufacturer, then shoot the best damn commercial you can:



Also, below’s the halftime show for those who either missed it, or just want to watch Madonna indulge her newly reclaimed pop-idol status again.

Highlights: Cee Lo dresses like a monk, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. (who flips the bird to the 152 million NBC-viewing folks watching at home) grab their pom-poms for the Material Girl’s new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” and it appears that the Roman Coliseum’s daycare let out early as LMFAO jump in for a dance routine set to the melody from their “Party Rock Anthem” single:

Carpet burns

A quick look at Grammy fashions (or attempts at them).

Local talent Johnathan Kayne graced the red carpet at Sunday’s Grammys — or, rather, one of his designs did. Let's hear it for this 405 fashion maven!

Artist Monika Jensen (pictured with adventurer Bill Borger) rocked this coming season's palette of blue and a oh-so-seductive high-low hemline, in Kayne's playful yet chic design, which represented this great state — and represented it well!

Get this look at BodyTrends, 9327 N. Pennsylvania, or SJ Bridal, 5645 N. Pennsylvania. Want a custom design for your collection? No problem! Call Kayne at 607-6006 to set up your appointment.

Now onto a few Grammy fashions we should be proud aren't local:

OK, Sasha Gradiva, we get that you're attempting a statement in the wide worlds of fashion and music. The thing is, unless you're going to be starring in an upcoming sequel to “The Terminator,” you needn't ruin a perfectly beautiful gown with heavy artillery. Let your beauty and talent do the talking — not the mechanical arm.

Robyn, as much as I love you, your quirky Euro-beats and your eccentric style, the red carpet is just not a place for platform steel-toe boots.


Just go away, Rebecca Black. Take your “music” and your “fashion sense” and don't come back.

We get it, Snook: You weight 98 pounds now. It still does not make that dress OK.
