Welcome to Yahoo, or, as we're known to the New York Times, the struggling search portal.
Business-savvy readers know that Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz was let go last week, and may fear that others will also fall. Their chief concern, no doubt, is the fate of the many excellent bloggers here at Y! Music, who've done so much to make this world a better and safer place.
Good news! A quick call to corporate Chairman Roy Bostock, who we know well from our days of writing an absolutely hilarious blog for Morgan Stanley, revealed that none of your favorite bloggers are at risk, except one. And Framed, of course, is untouchable.
So no worries, readers!
This week, we welcome Oregonian folk-rockers the Decemberists to our blog. After a decade of recording and touring, they hit it really big when this year's The King Is Dead entered the Billboard album chart at #1. Our video--"Calamity Song"--is from the album, and shows kids playing some sort of thermonuclear war tennis match.
Hey, don't ask us, we only write the captions around here.
Be back next week, when Framed takes a startling new direction, and features the most unexpected band yet!
1 - And, just then, God converted our mountain of debt into delightful cheese-flavored snacks! Go, God!
2 - "What the...? The ants have a camera?"
3 - And yet they seem like they're only a couple of ounces!
4 - Let's face it: all the baseball jerseys in Generic World suck!
5 - "Once we finish life-sized Risk, let's go to the zoo and find some hungry, hungry hippos."
6 - "No, no... that's my brother. I'm Index Finger Boy."
7 - "Wow, Jenny! All of your hard work and personal responsibility has paid off in a killer serve! Let's vote for Perry!"
8 - "The next Republican debate will be held over there, in the 18th century."
9 - "And there's the moderator, the invisible hand of the free market. You can't actually see it, of course."
10 - "Come back, ants! We also have good bands!"
11 - "Only Gummo can save us now! But The Sentient Bubble can't be summoned by simply wishing!"
12 - "Take it back! Framed is so as funny as ever!"
