oscar isaac carla gugino sucker punch love is the drug

As if that wasn’t enough to make all your Valentine’s Day dreams come true, if you squint hard enough at this pic you can pretend Carla Gugino’s pegging Oscar Isaac, which I’ve been told is very on trend in 2016.

ANYWAYS, here’s the Internet’s Latest Boyfriend, Oscar Isaac, and forever object of my camp affection, Carla Gugino, covering Roxy Music’s “Love Is The Drug” in a deleted scene from Zack Snyder’s Zack-Snyder-iest movie, Sucker Punch:

This Is Just a Very Good Cover by Twin Shadow
March 21, 2015

I’m not saying that this is a passing of the torch, because nobody will replace U2 in my book (or my blog), but I am saying that I’ve been listening to the new Twin Shadow album Eclipse on non-stop repeat and that this is just a very good cover of “With or Without You” that I’ve also been listening to on non-stop repeat. Sure, it doesn’t hurt that he’s super duper dreamy, but I digress. Old obsession, meet new obsession.

Yoko Ono Covers Katy Perry’s “Firework”, Totally Kills It
December 11, 2012

Oh man. Purrfection, y’all. A++ and all the gold stars, too. “Plastic Bag” is out. “AaaaAAAaaaAAGH” is in. Never change, Yoko Ono. Never Change.

Much love to Dlisted and Videogum for this one.

Well This Is Just the Best Cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework” Ever
October 3, 2012

No, really, we can agree right now that “Plastic Bag” is totally bonkers, and so naturally also the best. Everything from the obsessive repetition of a rather ridiculous lyric to all that Dancefloor Fierceness is marvelous, but the dress is what really makes this sublime. That dress is such glorious, arts-‘n-crafts hobo hotness that I simply can’t. Seriously, everybody can just shut it down with their Katy Perry covers, because this queen wins.

Much love to Vulture for this one.

The Young Professionals Covered Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”!
February 11, 2012

What do you get when Israel’s most fabulous electropop duo covers hipsterdom’s hardest working 1950’s-pinup-poster/hip-hop-video-girl drag act? Electropop magic, that’s what. So much magic that you might as well call this “Video Games” the next installment of Final Fantasy. (LoloUGH, sorry for that.)

And the Award for Best Cover of the Jurassic Park Theme Song by a Melodica Goes To…
February 1, 2012

So good, right? RIGHT?!? I mean, sure, it’s probably the only cover of the Jurassic Park theme song–unless melodica covers of the Jurassic Park theme song become a) a thing or b) the second season of The Voice goes shitballs crazier than Christina Aguilera’s wardrobe–but that still technically makes it’s the “best.” An A for effort, Jurassic Park theme song melodica coverer, and an I for internets. Very, very internets. Clever girl.

Much love to Videogum for this one.

Today’s “Quelle Surprise!” Shocker: Robyn Covering Coldplay’s “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall” Is Great
July 26, 2011

Remember that time Coldplay’s video for “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall” didn’t even go to this school belong on this blog? Well, color my occasionally questionable blog choices JUSTIFIED, y’all, ‘cos it’s like I have a fifth sense or something: Robyn recently stopped by Radio 1’s Live Lounge and performed a cover of “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,” and it’s great! OBVIOUSLY.
