Live On Alexa Chung: Phoenix

Who saw It's On With Alexa Chung yesterday? Everybody here sure did. It's kind of getting to be this crazy phenomenon at the office. Every day at noon, the nail-biting, hair-pulling and obscenities (not to mention the "work") stop and Alexa's stylie little face beams out from every single cubicle TV. This probably sounds like some hackneyed sales pitch, but I swear it's true!

Yesterday, when she showed all those internet clips of people falling and nailing their crotches on pylons, etc, etc, you could hear people shouting "OOF!" all down the hall. Even the old guys were cracking up! Anyway, just thought you might like to know about that. I've never seen such an uproar around here.

I chimed in on the yelling (the uhhh... Chung Chatter? :-/) yesterday when Phoenix showed up to play "1901." Did you notice who the drummer was?! Dude. Trick question. It was not a drummer at all. It was a ghetto-blaster! Man are the French cool.

It was interesting to hear that big gussied-up single all stripped-down and acoustic. The "Eh-eh-eh-eh-eh" bit has a totally different vibe without all the airy production. But I digress. The point is, what a performance! Watch as those mega-talented Frenchies do their thing for Alexa Chung in the sci-fi talking-picture-rectangle below. Just hit play. Easy.
