Hope you have tickets to Girl Talk's January 18 show: According to the Pageant, it just sold out, a month after it was announced. Here's a video of Girl Talk from Pittsburgh. (It took me a while to find this; you can only imagine what comes up on YouTube if you search "girl talk.")
"Did Motown and Bowie have a love child?" asks a YouTube commenter underneath the video for Fitz and the Tantrums' "MoneyGrabber." Astute observation: The LA band's modus operandi is indeed horn-laden soul with a twist of glam. Fitz & the Tantrums will be at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room on Saturday ... More >>

Gotta hand it to hardcore YouTube users: Just hours after last night's epic St. Louis Cardinals-Cincinnati Reds brawl, people had already posted homemade videos set to music. This one, which matches Disturbed's "Bodies" with shaky TV footage of the melee, is particularly fitting.

A colleague passed along this YouTube gem: a commercial for Thunderbird wine featuring the great James Mason. Perfect for the end of the week and, unlike most of stuff Gut Check, throws up here, perfectly SFW:
Miss the Dead Weather concert on Saturday night at the Pageant? Besides reading our review of the night, the next-best-thing might be this video uploaded to YouTube. Great sound, great quality -- and amazing amounts of attitude. Enjoy.

If you're at work today, chances are you're ticked that you don't have the day off -- like (what seems like) everybody else in America does.

This lighthearted ditty made the rounds yesterday, but on this holiday-weekend eve, it's worth posting. In honor of Freddie Mercury's 1991 death, this video surfaced on YouTube of the Muppets singing along to "Bohemian Rhapsody." Awww. Amazing. View it below. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
When I first heard about this, I assumed some crazed animal-rights protestor had chucked a ham at Paula Deen on account of her ties with Smithfield. Nope. Just this. Ouch.Update @ 3 p.m.: Ah, the copyright police have struck YouTube again, it seems. You can see the original here.

Now, as Christian Schaeffer pointed out this week, Christine McVie will not be with Fleetwood Mac tonight. Aw. However.
