• The busy people behind SXSW 2007 have just posted the festival’s mammoth lineup
. Rejoice, all you soon-to-be attendees! And to those missing out – we feel for you. BaebleBlog will be left behind, too, but our co-employees have promised to smuggle some barbecue leftovers through airport security for us…
• By the way, be sure to stop by Baeble's SXSW party. Several lucky Baeblers will
be attending the festival, and they've partnered with BUST Magazine to throw a music-filled, hangover-curing, happy-fun-time event with music by The Films, the oohlas, Prototypes, and Dios (Malos). Space is limited, space is going fast, space must be reserved - so RSVP
before heading south.
• In addition to voting off some semi-talented contestants (and retaining some pretty terrible ones), American Idol
announced its list of guest coaches last night. The 2007 season will include coachings by Jennifer Lopez, Jon Bon Jovi, Diana Ross, Gwen Stefani, Tony Bennett, Martina McBride, Barry Gibb, Peter Noone, and Lulu. Pretty interesting list, we suppose. Jon Bon Jovi and Peter Noone should totally do a duet together.
• The Oscars are coming. The awards show will be broadcast live on February 25th, with comedian Ellen Degeneres hosting. The show’s website
has a surprisingly amount of content, including interviews with the songwriters for each “Best Music (Song)” nomination. Check out what Melissa Etheridge
, Randy Newman
, and the Dreamgirls people
have to say about their songs.
Enjoy the weekend!
