“No Ladies, Just Tramps.”

July 16, 2009

One of the best cover I’ve heard in awhile. Video after the jump. Singer/songwriter Kenzie May plays piano and guitar, sings, dances, and writes her own music. An ex-pat living in London for the past 11 years, Kenzie uniquely blends her own voice with sounds akin to Colby Callait, Missy Higgins and Laura Marling. This is a cover of The Script’s bestselling single “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved.” For more info on her, take a look at the recent interview by 21-7 Magazine. Check out Kenzie May on Myspace here.

You speak Prada?!

You speak Prada?!

Ever since reading Confessions of a Shopaholic on an Amtrak trip to New York earlier in the month, I’ve been excitedly anticipating the movie’s June 23rd release on DVD to see how it compares. The book was decent; a fun, quick, mildly ridiculous girly read set in London. On Sunday night after the USA’s loss to Brazil in the FIFA Confederation Cup, I was more than happy to escape boy world, snuggle up in my covers, and pop this into my DVD player. The movie adapted the setting to New York, and cast the adorable Isla Fisher as Rebecca Bloomwood, which was a definite WIN. It was hard to watch (re: cringeworthy) in parts, but the screenplay was a good adaptation of the book that squeezed in all the good bits and added new twists and vignettes that were more screen worthy. It was a fun lesson on fiscal responsibility in the current economy, and minus the dancing mannequins, seemed largely plausible. Fisher as Rebecca is naive, sweet, happy-go-lucky…and incredibly wise (I’m serious). Rent it for movie night with your girlfriends, or enjoy after watching any major sporting event.

Tonight on “Daisy of Love,” London returns. The previews from last week intimated that it was either him or Daisy’s ex-boyfriend circa “Rock of Love” that would be re-appearing this week. Since London left DoL, I’ve been waiting for him to return…or for them to announce him getting his own VH1 show. Stay tuned tonight for Chi Chi & Sinister’s breakup.
