"Everything is Awesome!!!" by Tegan and Sara, featuring the Lonely Island (Natives).

[The Lego Movie hit me hard (in the best way). It had all the humanity of your feel-good fiction, insanely clever, with a stunning insight to creativity. I enjoyed it immensely, and highly recommend it. Also, the Berkeley Boys are on the track, which is a good excuse to gush over my favorite family film since Wreck-it-Ralph and Paranorman.] 

[Interesting! Production company announcements are a little too “inside” for this lowly culture blog but the Berkeley Boys of The Lonely Island are always a point of intrigue. Given their bottom-to-top, Channel101-to-SNL-to-movies-to-television-to-music-and-more portfolio of excellence, the expectations are extremely high. It’s funny, a decade ago Fox shot down Awesometown. Now, they’re in bed with the princes of weirdness. Cool beans.]

The Future w/ Emily Heller featuring Janeane Garofalo. Directed by Jorma Taccone

Berkeley’s own The Lonely Island performing “YOLO” live with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. 

[Akiva, Andy and Jorma are perennial progenitors of region pride. They could have phoned it in on this, but they transcended their own awesomeness with some help from the best band/host in late night.]

Barbary Countdown: Julie Klausner Interviews The Lonely Island (Natives) [20 Days Left]

[Julie Klausner brings her cabaret show to Outside Lands to provide SF with a fierce, femme-y assault. Biting, intelligent and hilarious, we cannot wait for the wonder that her Cabaret Situation should assuredly deliver. Julie is the girl in eighth grade with spot-on commentary and major laughs that we desperately wish we were friends with. Let’s hope to hear the writer, comedian and podcaster belt our favorite showtunes (her “Wig in a Box” from Hedwig is a must listen (@12:50)) and banter our pants off. You should go because you most probably need more redhead New Yorkers in your comedy diet.
