Remix Fridays: Chromeo, Passion Pit, Wiz Khalifa, Empire of the Sun, Death from Above 1979

Remix Fridays 6Halloween 2009 has finally arrived. Hopefully by now you have some idea of what your costume is, whether it’s balloon boy, Billy Mays, Patrick Swayze, Kanye with a Hennessy bottle, the Geico money stack with eyes, or zombie Michael Jackson (alright, maybe that’s a little too soon). Or maybe pop culture costumes aren’t for you? Then the classics are always a safe bet. If you’re a guy, it’s usually a pirate/vampire/zombie/mummy/beer keg/sports star/superhero. If you’re a girl it’s usually a sexy _, where the blank is any occupation ever.

Regardless of your costume, there’s bound to be a plethora of Halloween parties this weekend. Where there are parties, there is music. Here are some good remixes from Chromeo, Passion Pit, Wiz Khalifa, Empire of the Sun, & Death from Above 1979 that will be great for this weekend. Enjoy.

The 6 Best Musical Performances from Late Night with Conan O'Brien

Conan O

I can’t belive that it’s already been three weeks since Late Night with Conan O’Brien ended. Like millions of others across the country and around the world (Finland, I’m looking at you), I was not nearly ready for the 6’4” funnyman to go off the air. It’s not that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon isn’t funny or entertaining, it’s just that it’s not Conan. Maybe it’s just me, but it’s definitely going to take some time to get used to Jimmy and his style of comedy. So in my state of drunken-nostalgia, I put together a list of videos depicting some of the greatest musical acts that have ever appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Take a look at the list after the jump.
