Afternoon Tea 11.18.08

Are we excited that the Roots is going to be the new house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, when Fallon replaces Conan O’Brien in March?  I’m not so sure how I feel about it. {Autumn}

Who didn’t know this was coming?  US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is butting heads with congress over the government’s $700bn bailout plan!  He says give it all to the banks.  They say, give more to the homeowners.   {BBC}

The saga of the Pirates of Somalia continues as the hijackers anchored a recently captured Saudi-owned supertanker of Somalia’s coast.  Steely will be pleased. {Guardian}

I heart Chromeo and I’m kind of romantically involved with Vampire Weekend. So naturally I was glad when I learned that Chromes remixed Vamps’ “The Kids Don’t Stand A Chance.”  The beat kind of sounds like New Order “Everytime I See You Fall” It’s not as funky /sexy as I would expect from Chromeo but it’s great none-the-less.  {PMA}

Happy Tuesday mi-ladies.  Winter is here in NYC (it’s supposed to snow tonight), which always makes me want to go out way too often and for way to long.  Wish me luck in my prowls.
