One Second A Day For A Year

Saturday Night Live cast member, Brooks Wheelan, films one second a day for a year and the result is a video that is actually quite inspiring.

Song: Arcade Fire, Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

Sarah Millican

Sarah Millican is an up and coming English stand-up comedian, who won Best Newcomer award at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has appeared on several tours and television.

Prior to her first comedy gig at the age of 29, she had never set foot in a comedy club before. Her husband left her in 2004 after seven years of marriage, but on the flip side this left her with some hilarious material to draw upon. I think the reason why I find her so funny is the way she delivers her punch lines so sweetly in a slightly venomous way. Hope to see more of her in the future.

Brandon Flowers

I’m just in from attending Brandon Flowers gig at Brixton Academy. I feel very lucky that a good friend had a sudden, unexpected, spare ticket going at the last-minute and I managed to tag along for good times. What an amazing gig. I like the Killers, but Brandon Flowers first solo album really caught my ear. Crossfire was brilliant and I was grabbed by the majority of the songs on the album. Hearing him live was something else. What a talent. Clearly not lip-synching he sung each song with such individualistic verve it had me (a non-dancer) dancing enthusiastically and singing along without a care.

We were even treated to a few Killers tracks and a cool rendition of Bette David Eyes. See links below for videos. In the meantime be sure to buy Flamingo the solo album by Brandon Flowers.
