Nelly Furtado, Framed

Framed

This week's guest star, Nelly Furtado, is perhaps the only artist we've ever featured who's been inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame. Hang on, we'll check.

Nope. Rush is in the damn thing too. Leave it to them to spoil our blog.

Let's start again: this week's guest star, Nelly Furtado, is the only Canadian of Portuguese descent to ever be in Framed. Our video, "Night Is Young," is the first single off of her compilation album, The Best of Nelly Furtado.

Furtado is known for her eclectic approach -- she must be the only British Columbian girl who was once in a Portuguese marching band to ever be in Framed -- and "Night Is Young" shows her dance music side. Although the vid is somewhat simple-minded, we have great hopes that you'll enjoy it. In it, according to the internet, "night cyclists, dancers, skaters and young people are going to a party," so you can see it's every bit as timely as tomorrow's headlines.

We can't wait to hear your thoughts, so please post them!

Important blog note! We hardly ever allude to what goes on behind the scenes at Y! Music, even though -- trust us! -- it's a hotbed of rivalries, back-stabbing, and sexual intrigue. Lyndsey Parker's tell-all book, due out this Christmas, is certain to be a sizzling best-seller! This week, though, we're going to draw back the curtain a bit, in way of introducing an exciting new feature.

Framed, as everyone knows, requires not just us... and not just gallons of Sambuca... Framed also requires an extensive back-up team of skilled internet people. For years, whenever we wanted to feature a video, we contacted Arcy, who would transfer the video file to our home computer machine. And Arcy has done a fine, fine job.

But Arcy has been promoted--we think he's DiMartino's boss now or something--and his Framed duties have fallen to this new guy, Robert. Now, when Robert assumed his role, we joshingly told him that part of Arcy's job was to write some of our captions. (As if, right?) And he, with the good-spirited nature of a man desperate to stay employed at something a cut above a McJob, cheerfully agreed to help us out!

We were just getting ready to pull the plug on our little prank, when we had another thought: what if this Robert fellow actually did write a caption for us every week or two? It might be fun! Unless he was way better than us, in which case, the deal would be off lickety-split!

Bonus fun: we wouldn't tell the readers which caption it was! So readers would not only get to enjoy our high-quality captions, they'd also get to "Guess which one Robert wrote!" Pretty cool, huh?

Well, this is week one of "Guess which one Robert wrote." Everybody can play! Except Rob O'Connor, who may, in fact, actually be Robert!

We'll see you next week, or maybe we'll just send the new guy!
