Is It Me You’re Looking For?

An enterprising person with a little too much time on their hands put together this awesome video for Lionel Richie’s Hello featuring movie characters singing the song, which still doesn’t make it as funny as the original music video, but it’s entertaining nonetheless. Check it out, if only because it’s the only time you’ll see Leslie Nielsen sing a duet with Elvis.

John Bonham Would Be Proud

This kid knows what rock and roll is all about. I’m sure he was doing massive amounts of coke backstage with groupies before the show, but obviously as a rookie he couldn’t hold on long enough. And a bad job by the rest of the band to pick up the slack. Back in ’72, Keith Richards lit himself on fire and Mick Jagger put him out during a show. Didn’t even stop singing Brown Sugar. At least, our kid knows that the show must go on and recovered like a champ.

Who’s the Manley?

Posted: December 9, 2011 by Keith Stone in Leslie David Baker, music, The Office, TV

There’s no question that the man behind Lazy Scranton is behind this. Why else would Michael Scott’s favorite sassy black man, Stanley, be in this wild music video for his new single To Be Simple featuring something called N.U.M.? That’s what I love about actors. You see them on TV or in a movie and you think you totally know them, but they’re actually the exact opposite. Here I thought that Leslie David Baker went home to an episode of Family Matters when he should really be the third guy in LMFAO. The Notorious LDB plays a character with the most monotone voice in the world on TV, so in my book pulling this off makes him the second-greatest actor/singer in history after only one man…

She’s Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack

Posted: November 18, 2011 by Keith Stone in music, Rebecca Black

I figured since it’s Friday, here’s Rebecca Black’s latest video for the extremely simply-worded Person of Interest. It’s just as bad as Friday except there’s no hook or random black dude rapping in the middle of it. The girl may hang with Bieber rejects in her videos but she is no Bieber. At least it looks like she’s coming into her body nicely. Can’t wait to see her on Celebrity Rehab in a couple of years.

R. Kelly will soon be releasing an autobiography, inappropriately titled “Soula Coaster: The Diary of Me.” This news combined the picture of the cover rendered me speechless for the first time in my life. For comment, I turned to my buddy and the only Kels fan I know, Thing1. Here’s what he said:

The man best known for peeing on a 15-year-old girl is coming out with an autobiography sometime next spring?  Those of you who, like me, own Trapped in the Closet on DVD can save $17 and a trip to the book table on the Grand Concourse because that movie told me everything I care to know about what goes on inside his fucked-up head.  Unless it comes out on audio book or as a 46-part video operetta, I’m out, but I am curious to read about the microphone-bukkake session in the cover photo.

Call Me Nostradamus Stone

I wrote about Bai Ling and Doc Gooden a few days ago. They’re dating now apparently. You don’t need to be a genius to know it’s not going to end well. And that was before Bai Ling’s appropriately-titled new song Rehab was released. Check it out for yourself. She makes Bjork sound like Jennifer Hudson. Run, Doc. Run.

The Summer Song of 2011

It’s Labor Day weekend, which is officially the end of summer. I’m bummed out but I’m also excited that we finally get to name the official Rainman Suite Summer Song of 2011. We’ve profiled the nominees throughout the past few months. Here’s a recap:

I individually polled literally thousands and thousands of people to find the true answer. Without further ado, the Rainman Suite Summer Song of 2011 is………………………

Each NBA owner tries to help their team win in different ways. Mark Cuban uses advanced stats to find undervalued players. Mikhail Prokhorov uses luxury and his endless riches to buy players that otherwise wouldn’t want to play in New Jersey. James Dolan uses music. Here’s JD & The Straight Shot performing Fix the Knicks. Yes, JD is Knicks owner James Dolan. I guess he has some spare time during the lockout. The highlight for me was the audience groaning after he mentions Isiah Thomas. That’s right, Isiah Thomas is a part of the song. There also seems to be a bit of a tap dancing interlude in the middle. They should sign whoever it is doing the tap dancing. The kid can probably move on defense. I gotta admit, this is a great way to woo free agents. Here are the full lyrics:

Everywhere I go, I hear everybody say

‘What you gonna do to make that team play’

From the folks in the street at 34th and 6th

Everyone who calls says, ‘Hey man, fix the Knicks’


Fix the Knicks and make them shine

Get ’em to win like it’s ’69

Hitting all their free throws and no more shooting bricks

Time to get it right and fix the Knicks


Doing my best and that’s my problem

I check with my friend called Isiah Thomas

Pay no mind to those nasty critics

They haven’t done a thing to fix the Knicks


Fix the Knicks and make them shout

Get on and win like it’s ’69

Hit all their free throws and don’t want to shoot bricks

Time to let it ride and fix the Knicks


We know we’re getting better, but still no respect

We score a lot of points, but where’s the defense?

Everyone’s an expert saying ‘Trade your draft picks’

You got to get ‘this guy’ to fix the Knicks


Fix the Knicks and make them shout

Get on and win like it’s ’69

Hit all their free throws and don’t want to shoot bricks

Time to let it ride and fix the Knicks

Fix the Knicks and make them shout

Get on and win like it’s ’69

Hit all their free throws and don’t want to shoot bricks

Time to let it ride and fix the Knicks

Summer Song 2011: Party Rock Anthem?

Posted: May 10, 2011 by Keith Stone in LMFAO, music, Summer Song 2011

Every summer has a song. I still remember hearing I’ll Be Missing You on a relentless loop during the summer of ’97. It’s almost that time of year again, which begs the question: what will be the Summer Song of 2011? Hopefully, not a Katy Perry song.

For your consideration, we have LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem. I love it. The kids call this type of music “party rock”  so this must be like O Canada. Makes me just want to take some E, throw on a hot pink shirt, and dance. The video’s pretty cool too. Kind of like the video to Thriller if Michael Jackson liked chicks. Plus, it has a robot and Jesus. Could this be our Summer Song or will we be stuck listening to Rihanna all summer? Only time will tell.
