    Norwegian Duo's Pop Sendup = Funniest Song of the Year

    Hey, remember how hard you laughed at "Gangnam Style" the first time you heard it? Before it got played into the ground and somehow became a legitimate radio hit, separate from the video that made it funny in the first place? Yeah, well, feast your eyes on the successor to the "Gangnam" throne. It' ... More >>

    Sugar, We're Going Down: Songs For the Candy Crush Craze

    Two weeks ago, I was a normal, well-adjusted American man. Now, I'm a fiend in need of repeated fixes. I'm a junkie who can't get enough of that sweet stuff. I'm addicted to Candy Crush Saga. Let's say your mail's addressed to the rock you live under. In that case, you may never have heard of C ... More >>

    This Week in Deliciousness

    Welcome back to the weekly roundup here at Eating Our Words, where your Pizza Boomerangs are no match for our Nacho Javelins. The roundup was slightly less weekly last week, because - and this is true - I spent the morning in the emergency room having tests done and several dozens of vials of blood ... More >>

    So It's Come to This: An Office Clip Show

    Ten minutes of screen time? THANKS.​I'd hoped to see a new episode of The Office last night; the show's been on a winter break since the Christmas episode that aired December 10, back when we all thought Conan O'Brien and health care reform could be counted on. But though last night's episode, ... More >>

    Craig Hlavaty​Dave Matthews Band, Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, May 1: "It's hard to label what exactly they do, but it can't be called 'jam.' As limitless and expansive the bands who get stuck in that genre may be, folks like String Cheese Incident, O.A.R. and Dispatch cannot hold a flickering ... More >>

    Late Night Scene: Brasil

    ​Finding a parking spot 15 feet from the front door of Brasil is always a good omen. It's Saturday night just after 11, and with no special event or performance, the place is at that serendipitous time when there are enough tables to make the place feel lively, but few enough that a conversati ...

    Aftermath: Flight of the Conchords at Jones Hall

    The thing about musical comedians is that if the humor is there but the tuneage is not, you can pretty much cash your chips in and give up and steal some of Louis CK's jokes and start selling out basketball arenas. New Zealand's Flight of the Conchords almost has too much musical talent to waste it ... More >>

    Slideshow: Comedy Albums That (Probably) Aren't Funny

    We remember when we first saw a picture of Flight of the Conchords - playing tonight at Jones Hall - we thought, "Now those guys look funny." That was a compliment, because with many comedy acts, you can tell they're terrible just by looking at them. Turns out you can judge a book by its cover; that ... More >>

    Hitsville: The Year in Music, by the Numbers

    You don't need a half-wit music critic to tell you it's been a remarkable year for America, one historians will be discussing and researching for centuries to come. War, financial collapse, politics, technology: All have been dinner-table topics for many Americans. Racial barriers in 2008 were demol ... More >>

    2008 is but a week away, but it's already sounding brutal. Next year we can expect new releases from the Mars Volta, a Flight of the Conchords studio record, and a Rick Rubin-helmed Metallica disc.
