Hey Alice Listeners,
Thanks to everyone who showed up to last night’s inaugural Bosom Ball to support the Keep a Breast Foundation and UCSF’s Art for Recovery. With your awesome donations we were able to raise a lot for the foundations. [lastfm]Ingrid Michaelson[/lastfm] was there as well and she played a set that featured her singles “The Way I am” and “Maybe” as well as a medley of covers that included Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby,” and the theme songs for Fresh Prince of Bel Aire and Full House. She was fun to watch and I’m jealous of all you lucky listeners who have tickets to her sold out show tonight at the Great American Music Hall. Thanks [lastfm]Ingrid Michaelson[/lastfm] for being so awesome last night.
So the Twitterverse certainly made some interesting news this week. First, Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of superfamed late musician [lastfm]Kurt Cobain[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Courtney Love[/lastfm], went on a twitterant against Ali Lohan, feel teen and sister of Lindsay. Though the post was generally full of grammatical errors (like mother like daughter, eh?), she railed against the younger Lohan saying that she should not ride the waves of fame her sister has produced, especially considering that 16-year old Ali hasn’t really done much but look far older than her years. After the rant, Ms. Frances Bean deleted her Twitter. I say go Frances, even though her name is famous, she seems down to earth and pretty smart. Also in Twitter news, [lastfm]Miley Cyrus[/lastfm] deleted her account, too! Even though I think the move is pretty smart, her dad apparently believes his daughter must re-activate her account. “Miley. You are a light in a world of darkness. You were born ‘Destiny Hope Cyrus’ for a reason,” her father,[lastfm]Billy Ray Cyrus[/lastfm], tweeted Thursday night. “You can’t leave everyone now. We r countin on u.” Oh, Twitter.
So in honor of the Simpson’s 20th Anniversary season starting next January, Marge Simpson is baring all for the November issue of Playboy. Here is the cover in all it’s glory.
Hopefully you’ve been listening this afternoon when we debuted a new song by musician [lastfm]Diane Birch[/lastfm]. The singer has a very soulful vibe. Though she was born in the states, Ms. Birch lived in Zimbabwe with her parents as well as South Africa and Australia, creating a very worldy approach to her music. Currently she’s on tour and her album is Bible Belt. Most likely you will here much more from her!
